Growing up in Ontario I remember what seemed like endless days of wonderful winter weather that allowed us the time and snow to build snowmen, forts and anything my young imagination could create. Living in Vancouver now, we receive very little snow, but when we do, I am outside with my Little One building whatever her imagination creates.
We just had our first great snowfall and I was over the moon excited to show my Little One what we just got…it is called the Play Snow Igloo. It is a frame that allows the igloo to be built in minutes and enjoyed for days…or as long as your snow lasts in your area. 🙂
When you Play Snow Igloo arrives, you have to put the frame together. It takes only minutes, but will likely need to be put together by an adult. The plastic rivets that hole the igloo together require a bit of strength to get them together.
Once together, the Play Snow Igloo frame looks like this…
So here are my tips for putting the Play Snow Igloo together:
*Decide before you start if you want one door or two doors. The instructions for putting it together have both options, but I did not see the 2 door options until after I had the Igloo together.
*Have a pair of needle nose pliers handy because if you need to take any rivets out, you will need pliers to get the rivets out.
*If you don’t put the igloo together where you want to build it, you will want someone to help carry it over to where you want it for building because it is sturdy plastic, heavy, and awkward to move once together.
Once built the igloo takes minutes to fill with snow. The kids had a blast making it and love being in it.
For storing your Play Snow Igloo you will need to use those needle nose pliers I mentioned above to get the rivets out. I took some of the parts apart and put them back together a number of times to test the durability of the rivets. They are made of a very strong plastic and take being in and out a number of times. After a few times, the rivets start to not spring open and stay secured as well as the first time, so I do recommend that you purchase extra rivets if you are going to have to take the SNow Play Igloo together and apart often.
Instead of taking apart your Play Snow Igloo what I recommend is using it in the yard or playroom in your house all year round. You can purchase an igloo canvas so that the igloo can be used in the non-snowy months. I did not get the igloo canvas but would like to get one and put it to the test this summer. Having said that, I am hoping that the igloo canvas comes in another color than camouflage that it currently comes in. I would love a more girly option available.
The Play Snow Igloo is a durable plastic material that you can put together, set up in the yard and in the winter have a snow igloo, and the rest of the year, if you have the igloo canvas, then the kids have a fort all year long.
The Play Snow Igloo is sturdy and stays together unlike just snow that can collapse. I do not recommend sitting on the structure though as it is not intended for that.
I love the opening in the very top…come the summer, the opening will offer a wonderful stargazing opening.
