Once upon a time we had a Peppa Pig wendy house. It took up a lot of space and eventually was moved into the under stairs cupboard – mainly due to H having too many toys and us running out of space to put them in. Actually, the wendy house had also got a bit bent, as it had a lightweight metal frame and had several of her friends fighting inside it.
Big Game Hunters (part of the Garden Games group of websites) offered us a chance to review their wigwam, and after careful checking with Shaun if he would be okay with this (he was!), one arrived on my day off.
It’s quite a small package, so I assumed it wouldn’t be too big – oh how wrong I was! It’s huge!! I assembled it easily on my own putting the two parts of wood together with plastic joiner (technical term there), then slotting them into the tent outer. Then it was a case of threading the cord around the top of the tent, using a ball to space it out a bit, pull it tight, stand it up and voila! We have a ginormous wigwam in our living room! (extra bonus – no tools are required to assemble it)
Everyone who has seen it has been impressed – it’s a really hardwearing fabric, definitely suitable for outdoor use (though not waterproof, you’ve that big hole in the top!). The wigwam has had two children and most toys inside it whenever any of H’s friends have come to play, and is currently ‘the hospital’ (according to H). She loves it – and will often sit in there with her friends chatting – a proper little den and loads of space. The patterns on the outside are great too.
The best bit? We can pack it away and it doesn’t take up much space at all – something we’re running very short of as it is. The tent’s dimensions are H 120cm x W 172cm x L 146cm
As far as play dens go, we can highly recommend this wigwam – it costs £49.99 and is available here.
We were sent a wigwam to review, all opinions are our own.
