These teepees are easy to store. Just pull the poles in together when you're finished playing and it fits easily under the bed, in a closet, in the play room corner, anywhere you want to put it.
My son has had a ball in his teepee since he was just over a year old. The first thing his friends want to know when they come over to play is 'when are we going to set up Max's teepee?' At craft fairs kids of all ages walking by with their parents insist on getting in the teepee to try it out ( :
This teepee is made of a 100% cotton duck cloth in marine blue. The anchor applique is done in white denim, and is sewn on to the fabric.. The pole casings and tie are done in a coordinating blue and white fabric.
This teepee is 4 feet square at the base, and stands at about 58" tall from floor to pole tops. The poles are recommended to be cut at 68" a piece.
This teepee includes a window - lots of fun to play peek-a-boo or let the sun shine in!
All teepees include the pole casings and tie, however I am unable to send the poles with the teepees. The pole purchase and set-up is a pretty quick affair. Please see below for detailed instructions on how to prep the poles and have them ready when your teepee arrives. I recommend pvc pipe to use as the poles, as these are very inexpensive, durable, and lightweight. Wooden dowels are also a nice choice.
Directions for prepping the poles are as follows: (indicates larger teepee)
Materials – (find at any hardware store, Lowe’s, Home Depot, etc)
4 10' lengths of 3/4" pvc pipe
8 3/4" slip on pvc end caps
directions: cut the pipes to 68" (84”) a piece. Measure 8"(10”) from one end of each pipe. drill a hole through this end about the size of a pencil eraser head. The hole end of the pipe goes in first to the casing. put the poles in from the base of the teepee. then when all four are through, use the (included with your order) tie with the bobby pin attached to it to thread the tie through the holes you drilled. when you get the tightness you like with the pipes, tie it off in a bow so you can adjust it easily later if you'd like.
Thanks for checking out my teepees!
