You’ve probably heard the familiar phrase, “I just don’t know what to get you with all that you got for the holidays!” Or, sometimes you really get the short end of the stick when your Christmas and birthday gift turn into one present instead of the two that everyone else gets. Bummer.

This year, let’s not forget about all the kids who are celebrating birthdays at the same time as the winter holidays. They deserve super fun gifts for their birthdays, just like all the other kids get. And we have the perfect suggestion: a 1965 VW Camper Van Tent.

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.

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!
