Fort Builder Kit
What you get
Build a cave, a clubhouse, a castle, or anything else you can dream up with this endless building kit — perfect for architects-in-the-making. Complete with sturdy wooden poles and strong-but-flexible connectors, this crate makes building big, custom play fort structures a breeze. And with our easy-to-follow illustrated instructions, you can give your structure special features — like a secret door, a working flagpole, or even a drawbridge! Just add a few of your own bed sheets (for walls!) and a big imagination, and you’ll end up with a totally rad play pad. House that for a fun time?
From the desk of the product designer:
Behind the design
“I was inspired by childhood memories of my favorite fort — which collapsed when my cousin jumped on it! To make sure your fort would bounce back instead of breaking, I set out to create a system that was both strong and flexible. The solution was to create connectors out of soft material that can flex in one direction but stay rigid in another. ”

Love this kit! The connectors and wooden dowels are much sturdier than the previous plastic fort building set we owned.
Well I did not do this project yet but I am excited if I ever do it!??
We -just- got this and twenty minutes later my two kids are inside here giggling and I’m thinking I need another set at least (and more bedsheets) .. I love this !!
