I missed the Black Friday sale and was worried I would have to buy it at $50 more than the sale price was. I reached out to the company and they issued me a refund for the difference in what I paid. I really appreciated it!

Bought one for my 7 yo nephew and he just loves it. A fun project for the family to work on together and his very own castle in the end! I’ve encouraged others in my family to purchase additions kits (on sale for November!) so he can add on to his empire. So glad I came across the ad on instagram!

A posh version of the cardboard box forts I made as a kid, although this will undoubtedly last longer given the higher quality / strength of the cardboard. My kids absolutely love it and have not stopped playing with it since it arrived, highly recommended although I have to be honest I would not have purchased had the kits not been on sale. Standard price is quite steep in my opinion

This was a great alternative to the traditional blankets and chairs forts that we're consuming our entire basement. The quality of the product is good. The cardboard is not flimsy. My only concern long term is if the cardboard or black discs lose their ability to hold over repeated use.

We are so happy to hear you are enjoying your Explorer Kit. Our kits are designed to be used over and over. With that said, the Connectors (black foam disks) will experience some scarring over time but the friction fit tolerance should maintain to continue to build with.

I purchased the shark kit (1 builder kit + 2 creator kits) for my nephews and we had such a good time building it together! They’ve since created many of their own types of forts using the same pieces (also my sister loves it because the forts are easy to take down and store flat in the box). Such a great activity for kids!

My 7 year old daughter and I loved this gift. We spent a great couple of hours creating a fort and outfitting it with interior comfort living conditions as well as outdoor signage that reads: “No Boys” lol !!! I wasn’t allowed to go in and enjoy it after I helped her build it!! Long story short we had a great father daughter time playing/building together. Highly recommended !!

Nothing is perfect and I couldn't find excellent so good was the only choice. The kit was excellent for young (6+) active kids. This kit has provided hours of fun and learning for our two youngest grandchildren. They have developed creativity, problem-solving, building principles, and basic structural engineering. You do need a large area for this to be employed successfully.

Bought this almost a year and a half ago for my son. We still use this regularly. Countless forts, houses, obstacle courts and nerf gun battle shelters later we still use this. He is about to turn 7!

I wish we had larger (or 2nd) set, as he wants to build bigger and better forts now.

While it is a little pricey, it is money well spent in my opinion due to the many times we have used this. Doubles as a huge coloring/drawing board as well!

Great quality.

We have lots of fun with these fort building kits. We always run low on the little black pieces that hold the forts together, so you should allow us to buy extra or include more. They take up lots of space when built, but the kids love setting up the forts. We have built outside, but always take them down same day.

I bought this fort for a 4 and 6 year old siblings. It went up easily and they loved it. We made several different designs with it. A year later I brought it back out. Put it up added lights and they loved playing in it again. It is back packed away. It will come back out next winter for more fun times. Yes by now it is beginning to show wear. Hopefully it will make one more winter. Very good investment and kids loved it.

7yo and 4yo absolutely love creating all sorts of hidey holes and crawl tunnels. Floppy couch cushions and blankets sliding around, falling apart and causing fights are a thing of the past! Not to mention they can now build a huge fort together, or have their sibling rivalry and take it apart to still build 2 completely awesome forts separate from each other. We bought 3 kits and haven't even needed to open the third yet, although with 2 hyper boys I can imagine we'll need that box before long. Cardboard and connections parts are holding up well even with multiple dismantlings 🙂

Hey, Lucy. Thanks for the feedback. It does indeed fit back in the case for storage. The triangles can be arranged to all fit on a single layer and the connectors can either be pushed back in the original sheet or just arranged to also fit in a single layer. Now, whether you can get a three year old to do this is a bit more challenging. 🙂

I think the coloring prints on the sides are a really nice touch. We have no complaints! We plan to build the mansion fort tonight and have a sleepover in it! They had lights set up in it yesterday.
