Creative Play with the 1965 VW CAMPER VAN PLAY TENT!


I love toys that can take me back to a different time. I myself have always wanted my very own VW Camper Van. I may not have the chance to own a real one, but this VW Camper Van play tent comes close to it. This VW Camper Van play tent come in 3 colors Red, Blue, and Pink. I received the 1965 VW CAMPER VAN PLAY TENT from The Monster Factory for review. All thoughts stated below are my own honest opinion.

I love finding toys that bring my daughters imagination out. Right from the start of unboxing my kiddo was ready to “drive away” to far away places in her new VW Camper Van play tent.

This great play tent comes in an east to carry case shaped like a VW Tire which I think is pretty awesome! Once you pull it out of the carrying case putting it together is as easy as 1, 2, 3. All you need to do, to put the VW Camper Van play tent together is pop it up and insert 4 poles that come with the tent. Two poles are on each side of the tent one on the bottom, and one pole on top ( took me around 3 minutes to set up). These tent poles help keep it’s shape and keep it standing up.


Once we had the VW Camper Van play tent set up we were ready to have a fun filled day with our imagination! The VW Camper Van play tent is fairly large so not only could she play in, but so could I! I think if it was just kids you could fit about 4 of them into this easily.


The front window is see through and has a flap on it that can be pulled up, and tied back so that the “driver” can see where he or she is going.


There are two entrances into the VW Camper Van play tent. You can enter through the side door or the trunk which also opens up. Of course I had to wait to my kiddo to unlock the doors with her pretend keys before I could enter.


Once inside the VW Camper Van play tent my daughter “drove me around”, and we had a lot of fun playing. I really loved that I could play with her inside this tent without feeling cramped. The VW Camper Van Play tent is an excellent addition to our home, and I can not wait for a sunny day so that we can take our fun outdoors.
