We like a good fort.
My favourite fort-building activity is when we build something elaborate and it takes ages, they wander off bored with the whole endeavour and I hide inside whilst they do something else.
We usually make our forts out of clothes airers and furniture, but the EZ-Fort Fairy Tale Castle kit makes it easier to make a sturdy fort, with 55 pieces including rods of two different lengths, connectors and a pink cover especially for the pink-loving child in your life, which inexplicably for someone that doesn't like pink myself, is both of my children.

It can be used inside if the weather is rubbish, but we've had some lovely sunny weather this weekend so we set it up outside to make somewhere shady to play.
The EZ-Fort Fairy Tale Castle can be found on Prezzybox priced at £39.95. There are also different versions; 'The Bunker' with a black cover and a coverless 'EZ-Fort Construction Toy' option in primary colours. The suggested age is 3+, although small ones will obviously require an adult to put it together. At this stage they can have fun just playing inside it (or leaving me to play in there on my own) but there is more imaginary play to be had by older children who can put it together themselves.

We received the EZ-Fort Fairy Tale Castle free of charge for the purposes of this review but as always, all words and pictures are mine.
