AIR FORT – If you need a break from messy furniture forts, we’ve got your answer! The AIR FORT is the first kid’s fort to hit the market that inflates in seconds with the switch of an ordinary household fan. The fort blows up in seconds and is child safety protected. AirFort measures 77in wide and 50 in tall. There is no floor for an easy entrance and exit with a viewing window to see out of. It is easy to take down and fits in a compact bag for easy travel.
One night before bed, while my five year old brushed his teeth, I quickly set up the AirFort to surprise him. By the time he came back in to say goodnight, there it was in all its glory.
Both surprised and excited, he couldn’t believe such a thing existed and that I managed to make it appear out of thin air. Before I knew it he was inside with his blanket and books; he just HAD to have his bedtime stories in his awesome new fort. Thankfully the lightweight fabric allowed plenty of the overhead light to shine through for reading and the spacious interior provided lots of room for snuggles with dad. Typically forts get hot and stuffy, but my husband noted how fresh and cool it stayed thanks to the interior airflow.
Since that awestruck night, my son has used it numerous times for a myriad of different purposes: imaginative play, quiet space, art projects, movie “theater,” and all kinds of creative activities. Most recently he set it up and invited us in to play board games. It took less time to put together than it would have to clean the table off in order to make room for the game!
Besides the simple clean up, we love that we all fit inside. When I’m not able to play along, the mesh windows conveniently allow for him to stay supervised.
Overall we’re huge “fans” of this ingenious invention. What an improvement from draping messy sheets all over the living room furniture or setting up complicated tents with posts just for temporary play. This will get plenty of use for years to come!
