Playhut Beauty Boutique Play Hut by PlayHut
Boutique play tent
The Playhut Beauty Boutique Play Hut snaps open to provide a perfectly sized space for your child to play dress-up, have fun with friends, or read. The pink-and-purple play hut stands 3 feet tall, giving small children plenty of room to stand and play. A changing-room curtain inside the tent offers a private place to switch costumes, and a detachable mirror lets them preview their look before showing it off. Designed for children ages three and older, the play hut can inspire children's imaginations while giving them a private space of their own.
Girls can pretend they are in a fashion or beauty boutique. .
Play Hut Pops Open for Immediate Setup
With a spring frame, the cube-shaped tent is simple to set up. The Play Hut pops open when unfolded, and the door attaches with a thin pole passed through three fabric loops. Your child will be able to begin playing right away without waiting through complicated assembly.
And when it's time to put the tent away, cleanup is just as easy. The play hut collapses to a much smaller size, making it easy to store. The hut does not come with a carrying case, so it must be stored carefully so that it won't reopen.
Solid Curtain Creates an Inside Changing Room
To fully work as a beauty boutique, this play hut comes with a solid purple curtain that attaches to the ceiling with toggles. Inside this dressing room, the play hut has a flexible mirror that attaches to the tent wall with Velcro. The mirror is made of soft, reflective material, so it can bend without breaking.
In addition to providing a changing room, the curtain also creates a great place for kids to hide out or take naps.
Airy Tent Provides Multiple Ways In and Out
With two large side openings and an open-and-close front door, the Play Hut offers three ways to enter or exit. The side doors are covered with attached pink-mesh curtains that can be swept to the side and secured with ties or left closed for a more secluded feel.
The front door attaches easily to the hut by passing a pole through the door's three fabric loops. Our testers found an extra pole in the box. The hut also features a mesh roof over the changing room section, letting air flow easily in and out of the tent.
Bright Pink Tent Offers Fun Design and Thoughtful Details
The Beauty Boutique Play Hut is designed with bright pinks and purples with a few teal accents. The attachable front door features a rigid frame that helps it stay open, with a handle on the front for opening and a Velcro patch to keep it closed. Next to the purple door, a printed panel of flowers mimics a decorative flowerbed.
Next to the door, an awning-shaded window lets children interact through the tent all. Children can balance small objects on the window sill, although our testers found that its soft design doesn't keep objects firmly in place when the tent gets bumped. Kids will also enjoy storing small treasures in the secret pocket in the sill.
