Factors To Consider When Buying A Kids Teepee
There are several factors to consider when buying a teepee tent for kids to choose the right one for you.
The size of the teepee you are wanting to buy is one of the most important factors to consider. First and foremost ensure it is the right size for the space where you are wanting to place it.
Also consider the way you are wanting your child to use it as this will affect which size is best for you. Are you wanting your child to relax in it alone with a book, or use it as a play space with friends? Are you planning on being in there with them to play occasionally too?
Most teepees are made from cotton or a cotton/polyester mix. The more expensive ones often use canvas which is more durable and lasting.
If you are planning on mainly using the teepee outdoors consider buying one made of waterproof material.
Design & Inclusions
Standard kids teepees have four poles creating a square base but some have five poles or even six.
Some of the more expensive teepees come with a padded base mat and cushions, some include a storage bag. The majority of kids teepees just include the basic structure enabling you to buy any accessories you want to achieve the look and comfort levels of your choice.
Another of the important considerations when choosing a kids teepee is its aesthetics and style. Does it match the interests of your child? Will it fit in with the rest of the room’s decor?
Luckily there are numerous styles to choose from including muted pale pinks, greys and naturals, bold strips, florals, whimsical animal and garden designs, dinosaurs, mermaids, monsters and many more.
Where To Buy A Children’s Teepee
I tend to buy all my bigger children’s toys online. Although a children’s teepee is fairly lightweight, it is long and awkward to carry and can be difficult to fit in your car, so I believe online really is the best place to buy a teepee for kids.
Buying online also means you don’t have to worry about driving to various stores, parking and risking the teepee design you’re wanting to buy being sold out once you arrive there.
Throughout this buying guide I have linked to the best online location for each of the teepees I’ve featured.
I hope this buying guide has helped you find the perfect kids teepee for your child.
