We bought two packs of the Explorer kits and had an absolute blast putting them together on Christmas day. My kids are 3 and 5, so the bigger one got more involved with the building, the younger just put all of her toys in there and had a great time there. They both enjoyed knocking them all down a couple of days later and helped packing it all up ready for next time.

Great, responsive customer service as well, really appreciated.

I wanted to give my son something that would keep him off his screens and help him to interact with his brother. We built the first fort from one of the pictures on the instructions and he hasn’t even taken it down to build something else, he and his brother love playing in it! Very sturdy for being cardboard. One suggestion- make a kit that is waterproof for outdoor play! It does take up quite a bit of space to build a fort and then leave it up (luckily we have a sunroom/playroom). All in all very worth the price, very much a great kit for a Minecraft loving kiddo! My kids are 6 and 3, but I enjoyed building it myself so I believe older kids would enjoy it as well.

This is great fun and an excellent creative new way to get kids away from screens. I would like to say thanks to the team at make-a-fort who responded to my emails super quickly to keep me informed during the shipping process as I ordered this during the Royal Mail strikes in the UK. My kit arrived well in time for Christmas and has kept my daughter (and me!) very busy. Lots of fun! Thank You!

This is perfect for those older, taller kids that want to build a fort. We bought 3 sets so he can build up and out. He always wanted us to save boxes which took up too much room. These are perfect to take down and put back in their boxes and store. Love them.

Our nephews absolutely loved the Minecraft kit - it was the HIT of Christmas this year. What we love is how it sparks their own creativity and expression…gets them off screens too 😉

But I have to speak to the amazing customer service of the team! I ordered too late and they personally helped me get a kit in time - they texted, they problem solved, and they did it all with a smile and generosity. We love supporting this family business.

Very happy with our make-a-fort kits! Spent the better part of the last few weeks building bigger and bigger “castles” with my 3 year old. She loves to help and when it’s done she plays hide and seek forever. For me as a parent it’s also great fun building these forts, it’s like my own childhood dreams come true. Definitely recommend this!

Le produit est vraiment top. Certes un peu onéreux mais vraiment pas déçu de mon achat.
A l'ouverture des cadeaux, les boîtes ont été mises de côté par les enfants car des bouts de cartons de base ne sont pas très attrayants, mais après coup, c'est avec ça qu'ils ont le plus joués.
Mes deux enfants (3 et 9 ans) ont donc vraiment adoré.
Et 5 étoiles car le service client est à l'écoute et très réactif.

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.

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!

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.

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 🙂
