The Happy Kid Company is the company behind a fun diversions for kids you’ve probably heard rumors about — Connectables and the Fortamajig for one — but there’s also the Fortamajig Fun Fort!

Taking the plain old blanket fort to brand new, exciting levels, the Fortamajig Fun Fort adds pizazz to hideouts both indoors and out!

Here’s some information about the Fortamajig Fun Fort:

An 8×8 foot square piece of durable, water-resistant (and machine washable) material, THE FORTAMAJIG FUN FORT! has built in, patent-pending “stretchy loops” that invite countless hours of creative play. Extremely easy for even young children to use, the FUNFORT! features 20 adjustable exterior loops and 9 interior loops which allow young architects to build just about anything — a fort, teepee, tunnel or canopy — from one single, ingenious square of material! Able to fold up to less than 1 square foot for easy storage and portability, the FUN FORT! is also lightweight and portable, and, with no hard pieces to break or lose, it’s the ultimate portable, storable and durable all-in-one play space!

The Fortamajig Fun Fort is so multi-useful. We were sent one to try out and within two days’ time the kids had created a canopy indoors in our school room — a teepee outside in the grass — and used it to add a tunnel up high in their wooden play fort!


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What we like about the Fortamajig Fun Fort:

- The stretchy velcro straps — with extras included. These let you assemble the fort practically anywhere, with no worries about making a perfect stretch/fit from one securing spot to another.
- Kids can do it themselves! Very little adult help is needed.
- There’s a secret pocket to hide special things — ours usually holds magic wands and binoculars. You know, really necessary stuff.
- The vivid color choices!
- It’s ultra light weight, durable, and folds up neatly into a convenient tote bag.
