When the wigwam arrived there were a few steps needed to build it up. All I needed to do was slot the poles together and thread them through the loops in the material. I then had to attach them together at the top with the string provided with little wooden balls (also provided) inbetween each pole to keep them in place before tying the string tight to hold it together. You then just need to spread the poles out at the bottom to get it how you want it. Tying the poles together and opening it up is the most fiddly bit as I found I had to play around to get it perfect but it isn't difficult at all.
From the second I built it up both kids fell in love with it! They played for hours running in and out of it, pretending to sleep and playing peek-a-boo. It was great watching them. I then took it up the stairs to find its home in Gracie's bedroom. I found the perfect spot in the far corner of her room and stuck her favourite bean bag chair and a few cushions inside along with her favourite books ready for bedtime. She was over the moon when she went to bed to find her new story corner! It's amazing how these wigwams seem so magical to children. There is no limit to the fun they can have using their imagination. As the material has a waterproof coating it can also be used outdoors, we can't wait to try it out in the garden next summer!
I would honestly say that this would make the perfect gift for any boy or girl. I am a bit sad I never had something similar for me as a child!
The Wigwams from Garden Games come in five different designs suitable for both boys and girls. Not that our pink one would bother Zach at all! They are all available to buy on Amazon. The Flower/Butterfly design is available to buy here.
