We were very lucky to be offered a free sample of a gorgeous Princess Tent to review recently. It’s true our princess days are probably close to over here, Josie at 7 is not especially pink in nature, but I just knew a couple of little nieces who would love it – and I’m always intrigued to see toys, given the business interest in them.
Several things crossed my mind when I first saw the tent; the first was that it is beautifully made from lovely materials, the second that it packs away really small considering the size of it and the third is that I’d happily sell it in my own shop – and I’m pretty picky 🙂
The girsl were delighted and have loved playing in it. It is really spacious inside and made from quality wooden poles, with thick plastic joints. It can be screwed together (would make an excellent toy tidy tent in a bedroom) or taken apart as and when. The girls were able to build it themselves and it can fit three of them in with toys, quite comfortably. The fabric is canvas and sturdy, so that leaning against the sides is not a problem – I can’t see it tearing or fraying easily.
I love the two windows, which make it light and airy inside and I think the drop down door is extremely cute indeed. it is a proper den, thoughtfully and attractively designed and at £74.99, it is definitely worth the money.
As you can see from the (fairly tall) 9 year old Amelie stood next to it, it is a really good size, with loads of headroom. It really is lovely – and I think the people we will be passing it on to will love it as much as my lot have done 🙂
Disclosure: We were sent the tent for free but my opinion is entirely my own.
