Fantasy Fort

Ages: 6 and upManufacturer: HearthSong

Hearthsong’s wood-look DIY Fantasy Forts come in sets of either 16 22′ x 22″ heavy duty cardboard panels or 32 22″ x 22″ panels. Each includes a roll of Velcro ® with instructions for the number and length of the connector straps to cut.

Absent design templates, our testers first built a simple cube to get the hang of things. After that, the kit’s capabilities quickly became clear; paving the way to decorate with GI Joes hanging from the ceiling. Our more experienced parent builders found ways to create openings and working doors; some requiring a trip to get more Velcro®. Yes, the youngest had lots to say about what to build — on the car ride to Home Depot and back.
