Recently we have been in contact with Big Game Hunters, who asked if we would like to review one of their Wigwams. I thought this would be perfect, I'd been toying with the idea of making one for indoors as a quiet place to read but never got around to it, but these could be used both indoors and out. We chose the Aztec design which I thought would fit perfectly. I'm already planning different ways in which we can use it outside, and it will make the perfect addition and a place to step away from the blazing sun, I know whats that?.
Ordering from Big Game Hunters couldn't have been any simpler and you had updates each step of the way with delivery too with a time slot arriving the following day. When it arrived I was shocked, the box was really compact and I was shocked at how everything could fit in there. My initial thoughts was the poles are missing, this will just be fabric, wrong! Cleverly, the poles come in two parts which you then build.
Building, now I attempted this on my own, I thought I would struggle, I mean its a big item. But I achieved it, with a rogue toddler around too. The instructions are clear and easy to follow, simply placing one pole with a hole, into the plastic joiner, then a pole without a hole the other side. Once you've done this to each part you then thread them into the elastic on the fabric, join the holes at the top with string and a wooden ball, before tying it together.
Once all of these steps have been done, your wigwam is built, you can then stand it up and spread it apart ensuring its in a traditional Wigwam shape. We then secured the top ensuring it was secure and away we went.
It's not as big as I expected it too be, which is a good thing, but still big enough for me to be able to fit in with plenty of room. As its cold and wet outdoors, initially we have this set up within the bedroom, but as soon as summer is here, I cannot wait to use it outdoors.
Jack and Isla are both enjoying going inside the Wigwam, reading some stories or just going for some peace from the other sibling. Its provided so much fun for them both already and I know we are going to get years of use from this.
Overall, the build of the Wigwam is amazing, it feels like a product which will last for many years to come, and will grow with the children. Its a great addition and something which we will get use from all year round too.
There is a brilliant range of Wigwams, including this one along with other play tents available here from Big Game Hunters.
