Ikea's Busa Play Tent Review

Recently, we noticed that Little One started developing this habit of attempting to sit under his Graco High Chair. I guess, children love to pretend they are under... something. Or rather something that resembles a house if you will.

As with most other things in the house, it's got to be collapsible and compact when not in used. So this product from Ikea, called Busa, retailing at RM49 fits our criteria.

And as you will see, he has taken an instant liking to it.
 Think of car window shades that you fold, and you get the picture of this one that expends into a giant box with 3 holes; 2 large ones and 1 small one.
 Because its light (obviously), we placed a quilt blanket to 'weigh' it down as needless to say, Little One will attempt to rock it and push against its sides.
 Peeking through.
 And crawling through. This product is meant for 18 month toddlers and beyond, and of course, parental supervision is paramount.
 'Wanna come in Daddy Or shall I come out?'
This is what it looks like. When completely folder down, it's the size of a side. Ikea doesn't recommend folding another round like how you would on a window shade. Maybe they are afraid the metal frame might get damaged. In any case, collapsing on itself makes it thin and thus, we can just slip it somewhere.

The 2 large holes are large enough for me to get in and out. And if I sit inside, my head will touch the top. I'm 165cm btw. I must say that this is one of those simple (and cheap!) but very effective toys that children will like.

The End.
