Oh how I remember the incredibly cool blanket forts that I constructed in my living room as a child! Pillows, blankets, kitchen chairs as supports…you name it, pretty much everything was fair game as building material.
Here is a very nice deal on a more sophisticated set! Right now Groupon has this Discovery Kids Toy Construction Fort Building Set for just $22 including FREE shipping. This almost reminds me of a giant Tinker toy set. 🙂
Here are all the fun details:
Forty-seven sturdy rods and 30 connector pieces unite to form custom scaffolding for the Discovery Kids towering play forts. Children flex their creative muscles, assembling the pieces into endless combinations designed to hold up blankets far better than the amorphous frame of your home’s resident ghost. This set is recommended for burgeoning engineers aged 5 and up.
•77-piece set with 47 connecting rods and 30 custom connector pieces
•Creates scaffolding for impressive forts or makeshift DMV offices
•Drape the fort with a blanket or sheet for added privacy
•Recommended for kids aged 5 and up
As well as the Groupon fine print:
Limit 3 per person, may buy 2 more as gifts. Free Shipping. Free Returns. Does not ship to AK/HI/Canada/Puerto Rico. Most orders are delivered within 2 1/2 weeks from the purchase date. Does not ship to PO boxes.
I think this could be a really fun gift idea for just about any younger child on your holiday shopping list!
