The Magic Of A Teepee - With The Great Little Trading Co

We absolutely adore our teepee from the Great Little Trading Co; it's such a magical space for children to play in. The magic of a teepee is that it can be whatever your little ones want it to be, the girls use ours for so many things. It's their own little space with the only limit being their imaginations.

It works brilliantly as a tent in the garden on spring and summer days, offering a spot of shade, somewhere to play 'house' in, or just to enjoy an afternoon snack in. It's so easy to pop up and folds away so neatly that we store ours behind the sofa ready for when we want to play with it. The base also easily un-ties and is washable meaning it can go outside and inside.

Great Little Trading Company are known for fantastic quality and functional design and their teepee is no exception. The fabric used is a perfectly weighted cotton duck which comes in a range of designs. I love this pretty Blossom design, it looks beautiful in the playroom and in the garden making it an inviting space to play in and to have in your home. There are some thoughtful design features which add extra play value like a window which Velcro's open and shut an entrance that can be closed to make it cosy.

There is plenty of space inside, with room for several children to play, along with anything they might take in there. It's the perfect place for an extra special tea party for example which the little ladies quite often set up using their play food and tea set.

It's also a lovely place to hide away and have some quiet time, the girls will quite often ask for the teepee up in the living room, particularly on a grey rainy afternoon to snuggle up in. Miss Tib's loves to put as many cushions in as she can find to make it extra cosy and shut the curtains, peeping out occasionally. It's wonderful to hear the giggles from inside as it becomes a 'palace', a 'treehouse', a 'fairy house' or 'fort'.

I'll regularly find one of the girls curled up inside with a book making it a magical kind of reading nook. It's a really nice space to share a bedtime story together, all cuddled up without any distractions.

One of our favourite things to do is to watch a film together in the teepee, it makes it extra exciting and special and the novelty of it is so enjoyable. It's also fantastic when friends come to play, providing a super fun hide and seek location or an indoor den.

Given that a teepee can be used for so many things it's a fabulous investment. Ours has seen hours and hours of play value and it's something I know the girls will enjoy for a while to come.  You can find more details about GLTC teepees HERE. It really is a truly magical space - childhood simplicity at it's best.
