Kids love camping, whether it be in the great outdoors or in the comfort of their living room. The Pacific Play Tents Safari Tent and Tunnel Combo is big enough to fit more than one person, but can it suit both indoor and outdoor needs? Read on to find out what other buyers had to say.
Is the Pacific Play Tents Safari Tent Worth Buying?
The tunnel is removable so that the tend and the tunnel can be played with separately. A flap also comes down to cover the tunnel’s opening in the tent and the top of the tent has a mesh ceiling, perfect for ventilation. The safari colors are vibrant and the cute animals on the exterior make it perfect for both boys and girls.
When it comes to storage, the tunnel folds down completely flat, the tents poles have an elastic string inside which allows them to be folded as well, with all pieces fitting inside the included carrying case.
Some adults complained about the fact that the tunnel comes loose from the tent a little too easily, but most children did not seem to mind. Because of its large size, many parents had hoped that the Pacific Play Tents Safari Tent and Tunnel Combo could be set up outside, and even though the bottom is water proof, it should only be used indoors. However, if the tent is used in a dry area, like a back yard, and only during the day, it should withstand a little outdoor time.
The wall fabric is a little thin, but as stated before, the tent is not made to be outside. Also, the plastic poles have an elastic string inside and if the string breaks, there is no way to repair the pole or use the tent without it.
The tent is large enough for parents and children to enjoy it together or for a group of kids to play inside. The Pacific Play Tents Safari Tent and Tunnel Combo is a little expensive for a toy that can only be used inside. If you were looking for a more sturdy outdoor tent, then you could spend a similar amount to find a simple model. However, for just for a child’s toy this cute, colorful tent is the perfect gift idea.
