Today we will review the best models of kid’s tent house that are available to purchase right now. A tent playhouse is a good choice for children of young age as it allows them to learn to be independent and develop ingenuity, creativity, and communication skills. At the same time, older children also like to spend their time in a tent playhouse. Because it allows kids to create their own secret place! Furthermore, a majority of child psychologists argue that each child will benefit from personal space and isolate himself/herself from the outside world, to play with his/her favorite toys alone and in peace.
A clear advantage of play tent house for kids is the possibility to use it in different situations: a child could play with it at home, outside, take it on a trip or even to the beach! If your family like camping, your kid will be very happy to have his/her own tent, let there be no doubt in your mind!

Best Tent Houses for Kids
Kids Play Tent Castle with Mat Portable from Love Tree
It is a play tent
High-quality material is absolutely non-toxic (after all it is 100% cotton canvas). The frame is made of sturdy fiberglass that is absolutely safe for your child’s health. But at the same time, it is high quality, durable and hard to break it even if you want material! It is also worth noting that all seams and weak spots are reinforced by the manufacturer: the quality of this kid play tent is really among the highest on the market!
It’s worth mentioning easy assembly of the tent playhouse: it took us no more than 15 minutes to set up. It is also easily portable: it takes up little space when disassembled! You can take it wherever you want!
It is very difficult to find drawbacks in this kid tent house but we’ll try. For example, it is designed like an ordinary living house but not a teepee or spaceship-like tent houses of many other manufacturers. To be completely honest it is rather a pro than a con. The high-quality tent will be perfect for children of any age: from toddlers to teenagers. Not every teenager wants to spend his/her time in a spaceship styled indoor playhouse!
It is clear the obvious con of the tent is its price. Yes, the price is higher than the majority of the competitors’ offers. But quality is well ahead of competitors. It definitely worth the investment!
- High-quality materials.
- Stable indoor playhouse.
- Completely safe for child’s health.
- Easy assembly.
- It is for children of all ages.
- Carrying bag included in a kit.
- It is large, lots of space.
- High price.
- A possible drawback is that the playhouse is not subject styled.
Kids Teepee Play Tent Cotton Canvas Indian with White and Black Stripes from Tree Bud
This child teepee tent has rightly been ranked second in our top best kids’ tent house. Being made of premium-quality materials makes you confident that it is 100% non-toxic. The material is 100% cotton canvas just like in the previous play tent house, which is breathable and soft. The frame differs from what other manufacturers use and made of wood (pine). The wood is all-natural, with no paint and knotless. It makes this indoor playhouse entirely safe for a child.
This children’s play tent is less spacious than in previous one, but still, compared to other tent houses, it is enough to comfort for pastime (it is a teepee after all and as a rule, they are not very spacious!).
Let’s discuss the drawbacks of this tent playhouse. The assembly of this tent is harder than of the previous one. A child will need help to do it. Also, it is more difficult to take this kids tent playhouse with you as it takes up a lot of space even when disassembled. It is more suitable to use at home or in a backyard (it is a hard attribute to cons as the majority of customers use them in such a way anyways). One more drawback is its price (although it is more expensive than competitor’s ones, you need to take into consideration that it is still made of high-quality materials).
From the whole above I can recommend this play tent house for customers with one or two children (as there is enough space for no more than two people). There is no problem with quality – everything is well-built and safe.
- High-quality materials.
- Quite solid and stable construction.
- Good-looking appearance.
- Enough space for two children (it is hard to include in cons or pros).
- Difficult to transport.
Automatic Instant 6 Kids Play Tent for Indoor/ Outdoor Fun from UTEX
This play tent house fits up to six children. The quality is pretty high, everything is well-built and you will hardly have any problems with it. Unlike the previous two, this model is made of man-made materials which considered to be one of the cons. However, this is pros as well. For example, it is better for use on the beach or backyard as the material is waterproof and better for bad weather and active games. The frame is made of very durable plastic that is great against physical impact – it will not break or rip while six children actively play!
The playhouse is easy to set up, it takes not more than 15-20 minutes. It is easy to transport: there is a special carry bag in the kit made of very light material. You can easily take this kid play tent on the beach, lake or to the park – everywhere your child wants! This playhouse is a perfect choice as a toddler beach tent.
The playhouse has transparent mesh panels for good ventilation and supervision. They let you see from afar what your child is doing and without disturbing him/her. The tent comes in neutral colors that is why it is an excellent present for both boys and girls. Be sure your child will like this play tent house!

Children Play Tent for Girls Princess Castle Indoor & Outdoor from Tiny Land
It is an excellent play tent for girls. It looks like a medieval castle and lets your child feel a princess! The tent is pink so it will be a good present specifically for girls. As for construction, it is solid and stable, but the material is man-made what is, in my opinion, a con. However this material has its advantages, for example, it is waterproof. It won’t get wet even if it rains a bit and your child will not have to go home because it is still comfortable and warm in the tent playhouse.
The playhouse is easy to set up, it takes not more than 20 minutes (but a child can’t do it by herself you need to help her). Due to light materials and easily set up you can take it wherever you want.
It is also worth noting that this tent playhouse for girls fits only one child, it will be tight for two. You should also take into account that this model is the best for girls of 2 to 8 years, for older children take a look at the other kid’s tent house (for example the first and the second place of our top). As for the cost – the price of this tent playhouse is not high especially considering its high quality. You can definitely go for it.
Thus looking at pros and cons I can confidently recommend this kids tent playhouse as a present for your child – it is an excellent tent playhouse model for the price. You can be sure your child will be delighted!
- Solid construction.
- Easily set up and transportation.
- Low price.

Kids Tent Toy Prince Playhouse from Creatov design
It is one of the best tent playhouses for toddlers. It is made of man-made material that protects against water and wind. There are two windows that provide ventilation and a doorway with a curtain. You can keep an eye on your child without bothering him/her at. Thanks to this tent house you can deal with household duties while your child is enjoying a game in a playhouse.
This model comes in two colors: pink and blue. That’s why you can get it as a present for both a boy and a girl. Also note, it is easy to set up – it takes not more than 10-15 minutes which means you can take it wherever you want.
One of the cons is that a tent house is light could easily be turned over by a strong gust of wind. Also, I personally think the material isn’t good, I prefer to buy the teepee tent house from a second place of our top (but this is only my subjective view and based on feedbacks of many customers, vice versa, like it). Otherwise, this model is excellent as a present for any toddler. Especially if you take into account the low price.
- Protection from water and wind.
- Large windows closed with a net.
- Choice of two colors.
- Easy set up.
- Low price.
- Too light tent house.
- I personally don’t like the material that it is made of.

There is enough space for the whole family – it is large. Children like to crawl in and out in tunnels like in this tent house. And if compared to other models this tunnel is enormous! It is excellent for active children even for a company of toddlers (it is large enough for 6 children).
The material is man-made, waterproof, but it is excellent for such a play tent house – it is hard to rip, it doesn’t get wet and, it is important to notice, it easy to clean. To clean the tent simply wash it with water: it dries very fast.

Kid’s tent house is made of polyester but it’s high quality. The material is strong and water resistant. The frame is made of sturdy fiberglass that is hard to break. I don’t have any concerns about construction safety – everything looks and feels high quality. The printed design is high quality and rich and it looks amazing!
