|There are 4 beautiful tents in the Love My Street range|
When I said yes to reviewing these tents my plans was for the girls to play with them outside and we could make a kitchen and seating area but there has been nothing but rain since we have had them so there has been a couple of sessions in the front room and most of the play has been in one or the other of the girls bedrooms.
The tents were very easy to assemble with plastic poles which fit together easily. The quality printed tent cover then slides over the frame and it was a tight fit but they need to be, to ensure they sit well. Once made up the tents look superb and are really stunning, the detailing is great and so girlie. Our tents have now been up for over 3 weeks and they are standing the test of two near 5 year olds giving them a bashing each day. They both look brand new still. Occasionally one of the poles will pop undone when the girls are too rough but they know how to put them together again, it is that simple.
I think that the tents would be perfect for children just slightly younger (or maybe just shorter) than mine. Miss M is tall for her age at 117cm and struggles to stand in the cottage but it is not an issue as they play with her sitting down. The recommended age is 3 years upwards but to be honest I would have allowed my girls to use these tents from about 18 months.
The cupcake corner play tent comes with a mock cash register, bunting and some foam doughnuts and coins, it retails for £29.99 and this is by far my girls favourite. Every little girl loves to play shop, right? The beauty of these tents is that they encourage imaginative play and that is so important for your little ones development.
Sweetheart cottage is much bigger, retailing for £39.99 and it comes with a cooker, bunting, apron and foam baking tray, cookies and spatula. It has two roll up doors and a mesh window, which is favourite for playing peek-a-boo!
The play tents do look stunning when played with together and then you can use the velcro to attach the bunting between the different tents. I love the fact that each set is sold with a box like play toy (cash register, cooker etc) and that when the tents are taken down, everything can be packed into the box to be stored compactly and safely. Or if your child is anything like mine then the boxes get used for anything and everything!
