Crazy Forts Recapitulation

What is it about tents and forts that intrigue children so much? I remember building them when I was younger, my brother and I would lean sofa cushions against chairs and tables and throw blankets over them to give ourselves a private little space. Crazy Forts is an awesome build your own structure set lets children us their imaginations without batteries.
Crazy Forts is the unique design invention of Jim Whitney. With just a bundle of sticks and some connector balls and a simple bed sheet kids are able to construct a sturdy but lightweight place to call their own. Simple assembly allow kids as young as 4 to help with the construction but they definitely need some help to get the entire house, igloo or rocketship built. Sabreena has taken over this task but Shaun is a big help. I do wish it came with a carrying bag or a reclose able box for easier storage and transportation, the original box works fine just doesn’t close again. My parent’s house isn’t conducive for forts as their furniture cushions don’t come off and the furniture is too heavy to move around. Crazy Forts is going to let my children continue the fun from our house to the grandparents plus the outdoors if that suits them.


The Crazy Forts house has become Shaun’s and Shae’s standard watching tv spot. Set up strategically in Sabreena’s room this is where they sit on Friday’s movie and pizza night to watch Finding Nemo or Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The Crazy Forts igloo is where they play veterinarian in the playroom. It takes up a good amount of room so the few times they’ve set it up in the living room we’ve had to push back furniture. The optional LED lights add illumination to the standard dark cave feel that forts have. LED technology gives light but that are cool to the touch plus they shut off after 20 minutes.
Available at cool kid’s toy shoppes and online, Crazy Forts run approx $40-$45; less than a traditional playhouse structure but with the ability to change shape and location of play, not something you can do with a big bulky plastic playhouse in most backyards and playrooms. Did you design a cool fort?  Did you combine 2 sets to make a mega fort for the entire family?  Submit your design to Crazy Forts Facebook Group to show off your unique design.
