=====================================================


One of my best memories playing with my brother (when we weren't fighting that is) is when we were playing in tents made from sheets, towels hung over chairs, and attached to tree branches! We build Castles, Forts and pretended to be Prince and Princess, or King and Queen. Hours of fun, where has the time gone!
I'm so happy to see my kids have the same imagination and we have old lounge chair pillows and sheets for the same purpose. Hours and hours of fun!
I was so happy to be able to review the Fortamajig (well, my kids did that is) by The Happy Kid Company.

We received the lime green single-layer Fortamajig.
It comes with a door, window and pockets to store some toys or shoes in. It has 24 outer adjustable loops that can be attached to about anything, back of chairs, tree branches,...It also has 9 adjustable inner loops, so you can hang it up on a tree branch to make a tent for example. It comes with a handy bag for storage, is water resistant and machine washable and so easy to fold up and store away.

My kids have already had so much fun with it! It's great
to play hide and seek.
It's also ideal to read books under and have little naps. Notice Abby dozing off and Simba (our cat) relaxing in the shade? With the beautiful weather we've had in the last couple of days, the Fortamajig has been used every single day!
The single-layer Fortamajig comes in purple, blue and lime and the double-layer comes in midnight blue/orange, fuchsia/lime and red/yellow.

The Happy Kid Company also has Connectables, these colorful panels lock together with soft fabric tabs (each pack comes with 6 colorful panels). Kids can create small spaces or large mazes by connecting these panels. 
The Connectables can also be used with the Fortamajig to build bigger Forts, tunnels and mazes.
Both the Fortamajig and Connectables can be used indoor and outdoor.

The Happy Kid Company has very generously offered to give away a single-layer Fortamajig in the winner's color of choice (purple, blue or lime).
For a chance to win this (and I'm telling you, you really want to win one for your kids, it's fantastic!), please head on over to The Happy Kid Company, have a look around and let us know what your kids would love to build with it.
For a second chance, let me know what color you would love to have if you win.

My son would love to use this in the backyard! We have two trees right next to each other .. it would be perfect for a fort right there! :)

Feed the moose said...

wow. This is incredible! I could see our daughter playing with this, but more importantly, I could see dad really getting into playing with this with her! I think they would build indoor and outdoor forts with it, in between the couches and in between the trees!

Jill said...

These are AWESOME!! I totally remember building forts with my sister too...I think we'd try building a maze for B, or just a fort/tent in the backyard where he could stay out of the desert sun!!! Thanks!

Jill said...

I think I'd go with the lime ~ I love purple, but have a boy. ;) That wouldn't go over well w/ the hubbie!! :)

My kids would definately make a tunnel with it. But I would take it to the beach and use a shade.
thanks for the contest.

Heidi said...

This looks great, we'd love the Fortamajig in blue! We wouldn't have to get all of the blankets from the entire house into one spot to make a fort with this product!

I've been DYING to try this!!! We have lots of playgroups at our home and my daughter would love to make forts with her friends with it! We have a small tent that they all try to cram in to, but six toddlers in a small tent doesn't really work!

The girls would love to build a fort with it. Last year they used all my sheets to make a fort in the yard.

How awesome! My daughter is little, almost three, so I could get away with building her a lame little tunnel with a couple of chairs, nothing fancy, and she would be THRILLED to play in it for hours!
