Oh my word! In the past week, our family has been having SOOOOO much fun playing with our Fun Fort. A Fun Fort is a GENIUS product (one of those, “Why didn’t I think of that?!” items) that makes putting together a fort a cinch, not only for adults, but also for kids.
Don’t be fooled by its simple design! The possibilities for transformation are only limited to your imagination. The edges of the fort material have loops and are stretchy and open and close, meaning you can tie your fort on a door handle, a bed post, or wrap it around a sturdy stuffed animal, even (yeah, we’ve done it!). There are also loops on the inside, so you can create walls. Finally, there are pockets on the corners that are great for hiding your secret treasures (especially if you are building Fort Knox!).
When I first saw the Fun Fort, I knew it was going to be a blast. But I’ll be honest with you, I thought that it might be a mistake to pay $35 for an 8×8 piece of material. Well let me tell you, I now think this product is worth twice its retail price (and remember, I’m a thrifty gal!). I do not have the time, patience or skill to find material like this and evenly space out hooks and loops all over the edges. I don’t even think I could make it for $35, and I’m just talking about material costs, not counting labor.
The second reason I think this toy is such an outstanding buy is because a fort is something that will last and last and be cherished for years, even as your child outgrows most other toys. Forts are one of the last childhood outposts (no pun intended!). I remember still making them in my early teen years, even if the purpose was just to create a space of my own for reading a book or doing my homework. This Fun Fort is going to be right there with Darah for MANY years to come.
Buy it!: Right now the Fun Fort is priced at $34.95 and includes free shipping! I can’t think of a child who wouldn’t flip out to receive this under the tree, as a birthday gift, or just as a really fun rainy day surprise. Buy it here! Plus, you can save 15% on any purchase at The Happy Kid Company (except for the Fun Fort, which is already discounted). Just use code “Stuff Parents Need” and save!
