Spice Up Playdates with the VW Camper Van Play Tent

Kids VW Play TentIf you have young children, you know just what a playdate is. Yes, very quickly you go from the dating scene to the playdate scene, and it’s hard to say who is harder to please: your mate or your kids. Thankfully, The Monster Factory has stepped up to the plate to give parents a break from the crazy, hectic and messy playdates that so commonly take place in homes across America. The 1965 Camper Van Tent for kids offers endless hours of play without the mess or the tears.

The VW Camper Van Tent: Affordable Fun for the Whole Family

Now that the cooler weather is setting in, you probably don’t know what to do to keep your kids busy. They love running circles around the home, but that doesn’t mean that you do! If you live in a climate where the winters are cold, snowy and windy, you’re pretty much limited to the indoors. While there are plenty of kid-friendly places to spend your afternoons, paying per child gets expensive, and you don’t want to have to leave the house just to enjoy some fun.

The solution: the VW Camper Van Tent.

VW TentChances are, you recognize the name right off the bat. After all, who could forget the classic 1965 VW Camper Van from back in the day? You may have even spent a few family vacations in one of these vans many years ago (not too many, of course!). To bring back some great memories and keep America’s families spending quality time together, the VW Camper Van Tent was created by The Monster Factory USA. The tent is an exact replica of the 1965 van, and it can be used both indoors and outdoors.

Why Every Family Needs the VW Camper Van Tent in Their Home

Kids VW Play TentThe weather is getting cooler, and that means more indoor time for the kids! Do you hear yourself groaning a little bit? We all adore the kids we have and the ones that come over to play, but that doesn’t mean you want them cooped up indoors, running around your home. Thankfully, there are people out there who share your same sentiment, which is why The Monster Factory USA created the very first 1965 VW Camper Van Tent.

This tent is a replica of the original VW Camper Vans that so many of us traveled in during our own youth. They bring back great memories, memories that you want to share with future generations. The Camper Van Tent is perfect for indoors and outdoors, but this winter, you may want to keep the tent inside so that the kids can run around, crawl through the tent and have – hopefully – quiet time reading books or enjoying a pretend bonfire.

Tired of the Same Ole Toys for the Kids? Try the VW Camper Van Tent!

Kids VW TentImagine this scenario, which you probably know fairly well.

You walk through your house after a long day to pick up all the stray toys: naked baby dolls, random pieces of Legos, superhero fighting guys made from cheap plastic. The list goes on. No one minds having a complete collection of toys for their kids if the toys are played with and then neatly put away. Unfortunately, only June Cleaver had kids like this. Today’s kids are more interested in creating the next massive tornado using their toys as the basis.

Top 12 Reasons to Take Your Kids Camping this Fall

Fall CampingThere is something remarkable about the fall season. The changing color of the leaves, the impending holiday months and the brisk temperatures that favor bonfires, leaf piles and warm apple cider. The summer is over, and the hustle and bustle of the holiday season will be here before we know it. Use the fall season to connect with the people that matter most: your family. Autumn embraces family time, and what better way to be with the ones you love than by camping in the U.S.!

Here are 12 reasons why you should take your kids camping this fall – no excuses!

VW Camper Van in the real world: Upstate New York

Everyone loves the VW Camper Van that symbolizes fun, freedom and unstructured travel in the U.S. While it’s true that the iconic camper van can be found across the world, it holds special meaning to American families, especially those who owned their very own camper back in the 1960s and 70s. With its split screen, boxy shape and numerous configurations for sleeping and storage, the VW Camper Van can’t be mistaken for anything else.

Here at The Monster Factory USA, we can’t help but recall the fond memories that these camper vans have brought to our own families. That’s how the 1965 VW Camper Van Tents came to be. These tents look just like the 1965 model of the Volkswagen Camper Van and are available for kids and adults.

As real as the tents appear, we do not recommend trying to drive them down the street!

The Rich History of the VW Camper Van

History of VW Camper VanThe VW Camper Van is an iconic part of history. It was recently announced that production of the VW Transporter Type 2 will end next year, but not because of lack of popularity. Over the years, over 3.5 million camper vans have been produced around the world, and demands from new markets are coming in all the time. Unfortunately, new safety laws in Brazil for 2014 aren’t compatible with the minibus, so Volkswagen will be looking at its last model in December.
