Kids love having a secret hideout, and play tents are the perfect spot for them to curl up with a good book (or avoid a pesky sibling once in a while 😉). They’re also a fun, easy, and affordable way to quickly transform any indoor playspace!

    We have the princess pop up tent and it is so nice for rainy day fun! It is super easy to pop right out. We use it mostly as a ball pit. Storage is simple. It folds right back up into a small bag.
    We also have a large teepee type tent from Target that we keep out because it’s so huge. We put a little fold out kid sofa with pillows, stuffed animals and a book basket. It’s a great reading nook!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      That sure sounds fun and cozy. Thanks for commenting, Suzanne!

  2. amandanicole

    Same on the crazy forts.. not the accident part but none of us could get some of the connections and the ones we did get barely held up..

  3. mary

    Same here! Plus the sticks break and bend too easily!

    • Victoria

      We have these as well and have loved them for years!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Awesome! Thanks for the suggestion!

  4. Jane

    We have the princess tent number 3. It was nice but sometimes the parts break easily. my 3 year old had to duck to get into it and sometimes would go to fast and knock into it. It was a lot shorter than I thought

  5. Christine

    I’m 47 but I feel like I need one of these….Lol

    I can’t breathe just looking at these 🤣🤣🤣

  7. Sbhart

    I put that ocean tent in my Amazon cart last weekend for my daughter’s birthday in June. glad to see it’s on here!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Yay! Glad you can get it for her birthday, Sbhart!

  8. Sue

    We have the rocket ship tent, and I’m shocked how well it’s held up! My children have been so rough with it, it’s been put up and taken down multiple times, and it’s still in great shape. I highly recommend it (and the price is usually pretty great at Amazon!).

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks! We loved hearing how it has held up for you with the kids!

    • Amy

      We also have that one and it’s held up great!

  9. Molly

    I’m looking for a big pop up house that doesn’t get put together with poles. I can’t seem to find that anywhere. Any suggestions?

    Save yourself a huge headache. Don’t buy the Creative Forts kit. I got it for my sons birthday this summer, and it’s a nightmare to put together, even as an adult. The pieces constantly pop out (yes, I’m following directions) and your arms will ache the next day from all the pressure needed to press the rods into the joint pieces. I tried several times and was never even able to complete a project.

    These all seem a bit overpriced, but maybe that’s what retailers for the holiday season. I go the monobeach tent for $21 two months ago. Costco has a good semi pop up tent, very good quality. You do have to insert a couple poles
