Play Fort for Kids

By jordanferney |

This is the coolest toy we’ve seen in a while. Crazy Forts allows your kid to creatively build a structure, then throw a blanket on top and voila! Instant fort!

This reminds us of a giant tinker toy set. The different compositions are endless: a house, a palace, a pyramid, a castle! I think what we love most about this is it encourages the child to get creative and every time it turns itself into a different toy.

Get it from Barneys right here. (We’re not going to lie, we found this looking for new shoes.)

    My daughter received a set of these as a gift. They are no good. They’re very difficult to put together and don’t stay together once assembled.

    I disagree with the above comment. We got 2 sets for my son for Christmas last year, and they get used a LOT. It’s true that they are a little difficult to put together, but if your child is a bit older, he or she should get the hang of how deep they must go in to be sturdy fairly quickly. If you’re not inserting them all the way, yes, it will fall apart, but otherwise, they stay together reasonably well. My kids love them, and use them mainly to make an igloo and a castle, but they’ve ventured outside of the suggested configurations a few times. Fun toy, I’d definitely recommend.

    My husband made a set like this for our kids for Christmas 6 years ago. He also made large fabric squares edged with 2-way velcro to use with it. It is really fun.
