Fairy Princess Play Tent Review

Regular readers will know that my little Pixie is *obsessed* with anything pink, fairytale and frou frou.  Despite my trying not to be "Pink for girls and Blue for boys" she is utterly obsessed and a total girlie girl, which I think must be a knock on effect of having two big brothers!

She was fortunate enough to be sent a Fairy Princess Play Tent to review by the lovely people over at www.playhouses.co.uk who specialise in all sorts of make believe play houses from gorgeous, intricate wooden multi level play houses to  wooden castles and Wigwams.  There really is something for everyone and every budget.

The instructions said that it was easy to put together in less than 20 minutes, so armed with Beansey aged 8 we set to work.  The first thing that struck me was how well made and solid the set was.  Firstly, there are NO plastic rods, they are all wooden and very strong wood at that, for anyone who has wrestled and then broken plastic rods, this is great news.  The connectors are also incredibly strong and it was very easy to put together.  In fact, I supervised from the sofa and let Beansey and Pixie get on with it.  You are meant to then screw nails into the playhouse, but to be honest, we didn't do this as I knew we would be moving it around the house and it is big once constructed!

We then added the canvas - this is very strong and shower proof so ideal for outside!  Here is the finished result which is big enough for 3 kids and a mummy!  The kids absolutely love it and that includes the boys who after initially poo-pooing the princess play tent have now partaken in numerous teddy bear picnics and several sleepovers!  The only negative that I can think of is that it doesn't come with a ground sheet.   It is priced at £74.99 and compared to other playhouses is well made and sturdy.  It also have doors and windows that can be secured with velcro so easy enough for little hands to get to grips with.

Overall, I would highly recommend the fairy pricess play tent as not only is it well made and sturdy, it will stand the test of time which in my opinion, speaks volumes!

Peace and Love
