The Aztec Wigwam Review

A child’s imagination can make the impossible…

Nothing is ever out of reach in the mind of a child,
and magic hides behind every corner.

Give a child a den or a hiding place and they will have hours of fun, they will turn that den into a cave or a dungeon and their imagination will run away with them. They may even get you involved. Leo gets me to hide away from Daddy with him, and we have to stay oh so very quiet until Leo decides to jump out and scare Daddy!

Leo was sent a wigwam from Garden Games just before Christmas, and it has now been set up in Leo’s room for him to use whenever he wants. He hides his favourite toys inside, and has even been sat inside with his disco ball as the lights bounce around on the interior walls.

It’s Leo’s sheltered space within his bedroom that could put him anywhere in the world, on the most exciting of adventures. I love the freedom that simply erecting a wigwam in his room can give him, it can be a place to play or even just sit quietly and read a book. We have even put Leo’s bean bag inside on occasion so that he can sit down in comfort and be king of his castle.

The Wigwam can be either an indoor or outdoor toy, it is made out of a strong canvas to help weather the elements, but for us I think it is something we will keep inside to make Leo’s room extra special.

I found putting it together pretty easy, and it was just a case of joining up the poles with the plastic connecters. You have to make sure that the holes on the pole are directed to the top of the Wigwam when you slot them into place so that you can tie the string and the balls through them.

Over all it is really simple to put together.

Currently we have the Wigwam set up in the middle of the room, but I am in the process of looking to move Leo’s room around somewhat. Now Leo is no longer in his cot I want to try and spruce his room up some more and I am in-visioning the Wigwam potentially going by his bed on the back wall. But then that all depends on the space available…

We have had so many compliments on the Wigwam and it is not hard to see why, it is really well made and looks great. It is perfect for a little boy or girl in the Aztec design and definitely provides a great play opportunity.

The Aztec Wigwam retails at £54.99 which I honestly think is a great price for the quality of this Wigwam. Especially in comparison to other retailers who are selling Wigwams at prices almost double this for very similar products.
