FAQs

What’s included in the box?

Each teepee play tent design is shipped with 8 hardwood segments and 4 connectors, which easily set up in a few minutes into 4 poles, ready to insert into the teepee. A lacing tie is also included to thread through the poles to keep them together. (No need to run to the home improvement center to cut your own poles or heavens forbid, PVC pipes.) And yes, simple instructions are included too just in case.

 

How large are our teepees?

Our teepee play tents come in two sizes: Small and Large. For the footprint on the floor, Small is approximately 36” x 36” and Large is approximately 48” x 48”. We think the flexibility is helpful so you can select the right size that works the best for your space and situation. When fully set up, both Small and Large versions our teepee play tents are approximately 6 feet tall.

 

How to care for the teepee?

Our teepees are designed for indoor use only. They should be spot cleaned.

 

How to store the teepee?

Once assembled and set up, the teepee can be easily collapsed like an umbrella and stored in a corner or in a closet standing upright, which is around 72” tall. Or you may disassemble the poles and store the teepee tent and poles in a drawer.

 

Where are our teepee play tents made?

We design our teepees ourselves, and we collaborate with local artisans to make them by hand in New York City.
