So you’re thinking of purchasing your very own Teepee? Welcome to Totem Teepee – the home of the original Happy Camper! We know it’ll bring many years of fun and joy and this is why:
Our teepees are the biggest on the market here in South Africa. The poles are between 1,8 and 1,9 m tall and at 22mm diameter, they are strong and sturdily constructed. These solid pine dowels are also fitted with rubber ferrules(stoppers) which ensures your teepee stays put! The ferrules grip a variety of surfaces, including, tiles, carpets, solid wooden floors, laminate, screed and concrete. They also prevent damp from soaking into the wooden poles when you use your teepee outdoors. Every single Totem Teepee is made from five panels and five poles. The most loved feature is undeniably the window, which is the very first thing your tot will head to upon entering their teepee. Trust us on this!
When fanned out to the maximum, our teepees are about 1,8 m across, loads of space for a small gang, or a gangly teenager who wants to read a book in peace, or a great dane who is fortunate enough to have a teepee instead of a kennel (because kennels are so last season). To make the teepee smaller, sometimes necessary for small bedrooms, simply pull the poles up a little, and the teepee will shrink or expand as needed. Give it a try, it’s really really easy peasy lemon squeezy.
Every Totem Teepee play tent has been made with love and care, especially for kids – to enhance their learning-through-play experience! Totem Teepees are recommended by Occupational Therapists, in addition they are great places for fantasy play, quiet times, reading books, to take to the park; or to the beach to provide shade and a beacon for your child.
Each Totem Teepee made by us is a unique original, made with love and care and your childrens’ enjoyment in mind!
While our Totem Teepees are made sturdily and we use premium fabrics; they are not intended for rough play. It is recommended that children should not climb up the panels or jump through the window – your Totem Teepee cannot be guaranteed against damage if it is subjected to rough play. (As parents ourselves we do know this is absolutely normal behaviour for a child, so we suggest supervised play and guidelines to begin with!!)
