There are hundreds of wonderful tent and playhouse styles for kids and we’ve shared many of my favorites in the past, but now Target has a clever system of buildable play spaces from Antsy Pants.
The system starts with a set of poles and connectors. The sets are available in small, medium and large sizes. The small size shown below is used to create a shop like the Donut Shop or Farmers Market.
The medium set is perfect for tents, playhouses and castles, while the large set can be used for even more complex designs like the ice cream truck or pirate ship as well!
With the addition of fabric covers, the building sets can transform into any number of fun play areas like this circus tent…
the amazing pirate ship…
or this adorable lemonade stand.
There’s even a convenient storage container to contain all the pieces.
The Antsy Pants system is exclusively available at Target and you may want to get all the pieces you like sooner than later because you can never be sure how long they will carry this uniquely wonderful collection.
