Behold my children’s newest obession- this Little Tikes: Fold-Away Climber ($99.99) which R. affectionately calls “the indoor folding playground” (as in: “Baby S., get off the indoor folding playground, it’s my turn!”). It’s working as quite a effective discplinary tool for Mom, too (as in, “If you don’t stop doing that I’m folding up the indoor folding playground.”)
For city kids like mine, having a “mini-playground” like this is a real boon. It features a climbing wall, slide, adjustable basketball hoop and soccer/hockey net. Predictably, the slide is my kids’ favorite part, though they are also starting to “play” basketball too. It is designed for ages 1 to 5 (my kids are almost 2 and almost 5) and it is a big hit with their playdates (who also live in cramped NYC apartments).
Though I haven’t yet followed up on my threat to fold the thing up, it seems pretty simple to do so. And even fully assembled, it measures a compact 50.5″L x 47″W x 45″H. Which translates to a whole lot of money in NYC apartment space. But it’ll cost you only $99.99 at Little Tikes. Not bad. And tired-out kids are priceless, right?
