Parent’s Top Rated: Top 5 Kids Teepee Tents

Teepee Tents are so in right now as the newest and latest play-ground ideas and play activity for kids. If you don’t have one, you need one, your kid/s need one. A teepee for your kid will keep them entertained for hours.

So, what is a teepee tent for kids exactly? Well, it’s simply a kids tent that can be made from tent, cloth or plastic and is supported by wood poles. They can be referred to a few different ways such as tipee, tee pee, tepee tent and tipi tents. As you will see below, most proper teepees include a window to look out from.

Kids-Tepee-TentsSo why are teepees so popular for children? A teepee play tent serves many purposes; they provide kids with that ‘good ole cubby house feeling’ and they are a cozy place for kids to play (and hide). As a parent, you can lie in a childrens teepee with your children and read stories. It’s even better when you have kids over to play altogether, they will love playing inside and around the teepee.

So if you have ever imagined an awesome play experience for your kids, this is your #1 buy! I am a strong believer of experiential play more than technology based fun for kids as I see it as the natural way to bring out a lot of skills and development at a very young age. By buying a teepee for kids, there is no better way than to provide for good, natural, and endless fun and play activity for kids.

What to Look For When Buying a Kids Teepee Tent

Ok, last but not least, let’s discuss the issues that many curious buyers have when looking for a kids teepee tent. As you can see above, not all are made the same and everyone (I mean, all kids) have different tastes and wants, so let’s dicuss some of the most common and important things to consider when looking at childrens teepees.

Space: All of these different types of childs teepees come in different sizes so you need to consider your space requirement. What is your room capacity? Will it be placed in your child’s bedroom? In the playroom or in the living room. My personal preference is to buy a larger teepee that can accommodate either yourself (to read stories to your children) or multiple children at once.

Outdoor Teepee or Indoor Teepee? This needs to be considered as you can see above, not all tipee tents are made from the same material.

Price: They all range from quality and cheap to quality and expensive. Various prices offered would surely match the buyer with satisfaction.

Design & Features: Their designs create a fun place for playtime for your kids. As tepees can be placed almost anywhere, often at times they are fashioned indoors but possibilities of outdoor use is possible with a few of them as we mentioned above.

For Both Babies & Kids: You’ll need to read more about each specific product above as some do come with extra accessories but generally, parents buy these as a baby teepee or a kids play teepee; and this means one positive thing; it’s a cost effective toy/play idea!

Ease of Set Up: As it is another concern raised when buying, there is no need to worry for they are all complimented to have that plus of a stress free assembly and are easily dismantled and packed away.

Durability & Convenience: Except for storms or heavy rains perhaps, the durability these offers are good enough to support enjoyable play of kids getting in and out of these tepees.
