When looking for a children’s teepee, you will come across a variety of sizes, colours and styles.

If you are buying a teepee that will be used indoors, consider measuring the play area where the teepee is going to be placed.

Imagination set free
Children let their imaginations run wild. They’ll transform their teepee into a fortress, castle or house, a hidden chamber or whatever they set their minds to.
They can come up with the greatest stories and adventures whilst playing in. By encouraging creative play, teepees contribute to your child’s mind development. Through fantasy play your children develop narrative and speech skills. Help your children get started by inventing a topic or the beginning of a story and let them play it out.
Playing in a teepee requires some movement like crawling and turning which are extremely important for a healthy development since movement help coordinate the brain hemispheres.
In addition, children have to plan their movements when getting in and out from. A teepee is the perfect place for toys to play with, including building blocks and puzzles that require fine motor skills. Children love the idea of small spaces and secret corners. A teepee is the ideal quiet place they need for play away from the disturbance of the outer world.
Children’s teepees are fun when others are included too. When children play together, they learn how to:
