When I was a kid we needed to improvise when it came to pretend play. An indoor tent involved the use of a large sheet draped over a wooden clothes horse or, if that was already in use, the back of the sofa. Now kids don’t know how fortunate they are with a wide selection of ready-made tents and wigwams to choose from. These modern wigwams are also suitable for indoor or outdoor use.
