What our experts think
Construction forts are a great and versatile way to encourage children to use their imaginations and create their own little worlds. There is a lot of freedom for children to make the den exactly as they want it to look, which helps them build a sense of identity and belonging as well as being great for their creativity and storytelling.
Our testers did find that adult assistance was needed to construct the dens as you need some strength to put the poles and balls together. However, once built, the den was really easy for children to adapt and add things to such as blankets and pillows to design it their way. It is fantastic for both in the garden or indoors on a rainy day – having more than one set also allows you to build a bigger and more creative den.
