Antsy Pants Build and Play Kit

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
Children love to play pretend. It helps them to understand the world around them when they use their imagination. Pretend play allows them to be someone other than themselves and to try on other types of roles. The new Antsy Pants Build and Play Kits allow your child to be both the builder as they construct a number of different play structures, plus hours of play once it's built!
I received the small Antsy Pants Build and Play Kit plus a Tent Cover to try it out for myself. I initially though the small kit would contain the pieces for only the tent, but I was delighted to discover that it contained enough building pieces for several different structures. The covers are sold individually, so you can purchase several different covers using just the one main kit.
There are also two other building kits, in medium in large, which will provide even more building pieces, as well as expansion kits and other accessories. If you're on a budget, you can stick to one small kit and one cover. The small kit came with an instruction booklet with easy to understand step by step assembly.
Simply choose what you want to build and the booklet will tell you which poles and which connectors to use to build that structure. My tent took about five minutes to completely assemble. The connector pieces easily snap into the poles and are secured by a little bump that fits into a hole in each pole.
I could easily see a child as young as five being able to assemble this on their own, but having an extra set of hands would certainly be helpful. The structures are safety rated for children as young as three for play. I found no pieces in the kit that posed a choking hazard either.
Antsy Pants Build and Play Kits allow children to construct tents, lemonade stands, farmers' market stands, donut shops, and so much more. For even more creative fun, there is a creative cover so your child can use markers to make their own play structure. Endless imaginative toys that require no batteries are the best kind of play for a child!
The building pieces are made of plastic and the play covers are made of polyester, making the pieces easy to clean if necessary. The tent cover is brightly printed with snow-capped mountains, stars, and a twinkling moon. The cover wraps all the way around the building pieces, providing a three-sided cover with a front and back opening.
The cover easily slipped over the building pieces and the cover even has edges that wrap slightly around the structure, making it even more sturdy. I can easily see this being a permanent fixture in a child's bedroom and my own kids would have chosen to make their beds in this tent when they were small. It's the perfect spot for my grandkids to play and sleep when they come to visit!
