Literally the thing of kids dreams, the Air Fort is the perfect enclosure for kids. Giving them a private space much like a tree house, but within their own room, the Air Fort takes all of 30 seconds to put together. Just unfold it and lay it down on the ground and power a table-fan near the mouth of it and the massive cloth-igloo opens up, creating a wonderful recreational space for the child.
The Air Fort comes in two designs and is made from a rather thin polyester fabric. When opened out and inflated, it can easily fit a family of 3 in, or up to 4 children, and it barely occupies the space of a pillow when folded and stored in its drawstring pouch. The base of the Air Fort is open, which means if the fort ever collapses, the kids can easily make their way out by lifting the base up and moving out from underneath. The Air Fort takes care of child safety too, by introducing a mesh wall that separates them from the fan that’s connected to the fort.
A rather enchanting product born out of years of making blanket-forts, the Air Fort is a wonderful way to transform a regular space into a fun-filled zone, and possibly the best slumber parties ever. Damn, I wish I was a youngster again!
