Our playhouses and play tents provide children with a private place to play, a secret hideaway they can call their own, where they can enjoy all sorts of magical adventures alone or with their friends. As kids begin to build a sense of self, they begin to develop a sense of independence and start to explore new skills and test their limits. Giving them a place to call their own is important to this process. If it is different enough from the real world, they can feel like they have closed the door on the real world. This will be their retreat, their own little world, or timeout, a place where they can always be in control, make time stand still or fast forward.
