When you have toddlers under the age of four looking for things to play with, you can't go wrong with play tents to keep them occupied and entertained for hours on end. There are some great tents that are available to buy online and the prices are mostly very affordable for families on a tight budget (as many with young children often find themselves).
I can't recommend Amazon highly enough for being a great source of play tents and forts for young children (as well as older kids), as they have some great items at great value for money and they ship for free as well (for items over a certain price - see the link below for details)!
Which Play Tents Do Young Kids Go For?
When you look at what is available online for younger children to enjoy playing with, it becomes pretty clear there is a lot of choice. What you end up buying will often depend on whether you have boys, girls or both, as each has their own preferences as to what they like to play at.
For boys, kids indoor play forts tend to be more popular as they can create their own indoor fort and make believe all kinds of games where they are defending against all manner of attacking legions of enemies from human ones to mythical beasts such as fire breathing dragons, charging minotaurs and griffins and just about everything else in between!
You can also get ready made styles, such as the ever popular Thomas the Tank Engine tent for boys (see below).
For girls, the playhouse kind of indoor play tent is generally more popular. That's because girls tend to prefer organizing tea parties with their friends and all their dolls, plush toys and whatever else they have to create their own imaginary guests.
My own three year old daughter loves to create a cozy room complete with cushions and blankets so all her toys can be arranged just so for her own special dinner parties!
