In the two months that we've had our Space Station Tent and Tunnel Combo, The Rock Daughters™ have used it as a "Space Movie Theater," climbing inside to watch the 1986 classic, Space Camp, and Shout! Factory's recent Journey to Space. It's served as a "Rocket Ship," "Space Shuttle," "Space House," and yes, the "International Space Station."
We've been fans of Pacific Play Tents for a long time, starting with one of their XXL tunnels (I can fit in it!) that Grandma bought for the girls years ago, and their tent and tunnel combos are classic. We've played with them at the park district and other kids' houses, but this Space Station is just next-level cool. As the weather warms up, we'll be using this for some backyard adventures outside as well!
When it comes to quality dress-up and role-play gear, Aeromax Toys is leading the charge. For just a little bit more than many typical "costumes," Aeromax offers detailed and durable Astronaut Suits (and many other professions) with real embroidered patches for NASA, the Space Shuttle and more. They feel sturdy, like real clothes, and they fit great. Available in both white and orange (just like the real Shuttle crew!), the perfect accessory is the Jr. Astronaut Helmet with sound. The push-button visor pops up with realistic action, and the push-button "intercom" puts authentic space crew sounds right into the helmet.
For those who want the complete experience, Aeromax also offers Astronaut Boots, Gloves, Backpacks and Flight Jackets.
I'm a big supporter of classic, imaginative play, and with the summer months fast-approaching, this space gear from Pacific Play Tents and Aeromax Toys is a winning combo that can be considered 100% Rock Father-approved. Durable, affordable, and available for a wide age rage of kids to enjoy (toddlers to teens).
