In these modern times, we all try hard to give our children the best and of course, provide them with a fun childhood. At times, Mr C will build a den with the kids and have their mini party while I cook lunch/dinner. I am so pleased to come across pl-ug (the den expert) at the recent Toy Fair. Now I won’t need to look for my missing pegs or clips as they have proper kit to help them build a proper canopy den!
In this Canopy Den Kit, there are:
- 2 clamps
- 2 hooks
- 2 suckers
- 2 pegs
- 4 grips
- 1 blue star sheet (144 cm x 284 cm)
- 1 keep out sign
This kit allows children to build dens both indoors and outdoors. It is suitable for aged 5 onwards. With the introduction of tent pegs and the PL-UG sheet you can attach the components to different objects around the house and garden such as tables, chairs, and trees.
The tent pegs are very well made and easy to clip together. Both of our six year old testers initially found it hard to understand how to clip the grips together with the hooks/clamps. But after showing them how to match the groove, there was no stopping them with building their their own den!
We had tried different ways to build it. This was built by my son. He used the door and pretended that this was his car den with rockets! He is well dressed up in his Formula 1 costume and ready to shot his enemies!
If you like the kit, you can buy via pl-ug shop or John Lewis online. Beside the Canopy Den Kit (RRP £25), they also sell Den Kit (RRP £15) as the basic set or there is also the Ultimate Den Kit (RRP £55). They also ship overseas, just email them for price!
