My grandkids loved creating and playing in the fort we made using 2 Explorer kits. We opted to use our own design (and modifications while playing in it), but it's neat that there are also plans you can use. They had a great time!

I saw this ad on F.B. and liked the idea. I wanted something fun and different for my Grandson. He was so excited when he realized what it was and he said "No more pillows and blankets!" I am not sure if my son likes it more than my grandson though!

We had a lot of fun making our fort. Pretty easy to put together. We followed the tips Make a Fort e-mail me. The grandson went into the fort and he’s not come out. In fact he wants to sleep in it. A little pricey, but worth it. I recommend Make a Fort.

Truly a perfect gift for my 3 y.o. grandson.
I only wish everything fit back in the box for storage.
Reply from kent:
Hey, Lucy. Thanks for the feedback. It does indeed fit back in the case for storage. The triangles can be arranged to all fit on a single layer and the connectors can either be pushed back in the original sheet or just arranged to also fit in a single layer. Now, whether you can get a three year old to do this is a bit more challenging. 🙂

We bought this for our 5 year old grandson for Christmas. He absolutely loves it! My husband built it and said it was easy. He brought pillows, blankets and toys inside. So much better than the pillow and blanket forts he used to make.

My daughter is 8 and my son is 5. They LOVE their Make-A-Fort kit! They spend hours playing in this thing! They really enjoy building the forts and helping create new structures too. I think the coloring prints on the sides are a really nice touch. We have no complaints! We plan to build the mansion fort tonight and have a sleepover in it! They had lights set up in it yesterday. We made the maze project with it today and are going to play laser tag with it. Thanks so much!

I purchased the 3 Sets for my 2 Great Grand Sons, who are 5 and 3, they went crazy after their Dad and I built a simple Fort using 1 Set. They absolutely had a ball playing with it on CHRISTmas morning, we had to make them open other Gifts but they wanted to play in their Fort. Great product and easy to construct.

Santa delivered four boxes worth of Make-a-Fort fun on Christmas. The gift was a surprise, as our 8 and 10-year-old daughters had never seen it before. Santa knew, though, that fort-making is their favorite thing to do. We’ve had forts made out of furniture cushions, pillows, blankets, ottomans, barstools and gymnastics mats since they could walk.



First thing on Christmas morning they hauled all four boxes into the family room and got to work. In less than an hour they had a 3-story structure built. The next day that structure came down and a fantastic labyrinth was constructed. As our 8-year-old said, “Best fort ever!” We also love how they work together to build. It was very easy for them to figure out. They did it all on their own without looking at instructions.



Highly recommend!

This is such an incredible product. My sons have already made multiple forts since Christmas. My son has decided to decided to use his Christmas money from grandparents to purchase more. All my posts on FB have already sparked multiple friends to want to buy for their kids as well!! You should expect many orders just from our town in SC!!

Creativity will continue to be explored through this great product!! Thank you.
