WigWam Bam, Gonna Make You My Man!

Here is my little man - and my little miss in the new wigwam! We reviewed this recently and here are my thoughts!

**This is a Product Review Post**


Product Name: Wigwam by Garden Games
Buy Online Here: www.playhouses.co.uk
Price: £49.99
Star Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

The blurb: Our Wigwam is a house for your "savages" to hide away and plot their day. Decorative motifs adorn the textile cover held up with 6 wooden poles standing 1.9m tall. Wigwam diameter: 1.4m. "New" Updated Versions now come with Velcro fastenings instead of ties...

Initial Thoughts: We were so excited when the wigwam arrived and set about building it straightaway. The instructions are printed on the box, but they proved quite tricky to follow. The first time we assembled the teepee it ended up inside out! (So the print was on the inside) We had to pull apart each pole at the central connection to reverse the fabric to get it right. This wasn't really difficult to do but we felt it could have been made clearer on the box. Once assembled, it was a good size- my kids both got inside with some dolls and a cat to play, but as it is still so cold outside we played indoors. In the summer we plan to erect it in the corner of the garden and it will make a great extra place to play on a hot day!

I Liked: The fabric of the teepee was really good quality, very thick and substantial, and I love the print design on it. It worked great for my kids as it was neither too girly nor too masculine! It was quite a retro design which would work well in any house or garden. Kids always love a 'den' and our cats enjoyed hiding in the wigwam too!

I wasn't Keen: Aside from the trouble with the instructions, we did find that the teepee kept shrinking down so the fabric would slide down the poles at the top and needed pulling back up. It never prevented the kids from getting inside but we kept needing to tighten the knot at the top of the wigwam to keep things in place.

Overall: There are three playtents on the website. The wigwam is here and is personally my favourite of the three. If your kids are looking for a fun play tent, this one is suitable for all ages. My children are 9 and 4 and they had great fun in it!

Thanks for visiting! You are looking hot today! x
