Kids go bananas for Crazy Forts

Today is the last day of school for my children, and now the fun begins!

I love the summer for easy going days, there are very few schedules or structure, and I like that....for the most part.  What I don't like is when the kids come and say they are bored on about day three of summer vacation.

This summer, I have a secret weapon to combat the boredom - Crazy Forts.

All you need to power Crazy Forts is your child's imagination and inspiration,  and a couple of sheets or blankets.

We received Original Crazy Forts to play with, just in time for when that summer boredom begins to settle in.  Let me just say my children are the perfect Crazy Fort connoisseurs, they are constantly dragging blankets out from their bedrooms, they are forever pulling cushions off the couch, and they are always trying to make kitchen chair forts (which don't work by the way).

A Crazy Forts kit comes with sticks and connector balls, and that is it.   Crazy Forts even offers some cool design ideas to get you started.

Both the sticks and connector balls are strong and can easily take the wear and tear which children put their toys through.  I love that every day your child can make a new structure keeping the interest in the toy alive.  Crazy Forts is the kind of toy which entertains for hours using good-old-fashioned-play.

Crazy Forts was created by a Canadian Dad

I am a big promoter of childhood toys which are simple, yet stimulating.  I like toys which unplug kids (from screens).  I love toys which spark imagination and whisk a child away to another world, be in to a castle or on a rocket ship.

Looking for a toy which will entertain for hours, then look no further than Crazy Forts!  Look for new Glow in the Dark Crazy Forts, which are available now.  I was just shopping at Indigo Kids and saw an impressive display of Crazy Forts, including Glow in the Dark.

Crazy Forts is my pick as a  top toy for the summer of 2012.

AWH!!! Where were they when I was growing up?? lol! I had to resort to couch and chair cushions for my forts (and always got in trouble for it, rofl) These are SO neat. Every child needs to experience the awesomeness of forts. :D

I used to have one of these in my house... we sold it due to our move... was well loved and got a lot of use. :)

Ohmy goodness! My 3 year old would LOVE this! It would sure beat turning our living room upside down to make forts out of the couches, chairs, and blankets, etc!

Oh wow! What a cool product! I had no idea something like this existed!

Talk about memory lane! I remember building forts with my brother as a kid but they weren't this sophisticated. Can't wait to try it out!
