AIR FORT Redefines the Indoor Play Fort
Following a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign, Air Fort’s father-daughter team have taken the conventional pillow fort and modernized it for the 21st century. Gone are the days of sheets, cushions and messy cleanups. With only a household fan, Air Fort quickly transforms your home into this summer’s hottest toy.
Named as one of Toy Insider’s Must Have Summer Toys, Air Fort comes to the rescue on summer days spent indoors by converting playrooms into fairytale lands or changing a living room into a private movie theater. Set up is a breeze and only requires a 20″ box fan or an 18″ tabletop round fan. In 30 seconds or less, the 77-inch by 50-inch fort fully inflates and is ready for hours of fun. With a 24-inch shroud, Air Fort comfortably fits multiple kids and adults.
“Everyone has memories of tearing apart their living room by taking mom’s cushions and sheets to build a fort. My dad and I were motivated to design a fort that captured all the joys and imagination of the traditional indoor fort while eliminating all of its stresses,” said Luciana Hanley, co-founder of Air Fort. “The innovative Air Fort sets up in seconds, is the largest fort on the market and doesn’t require any storage space.”
Designed with a breathable polyester material, Air Fort weighs only 24 ounces and is available in pink and white, and digital camouflage. There is no floor, so entering and exiting is a breeze from all sides. Parents can keep an eye on the kids through the viewing window.
“There is nothing like the Air Fort on the market. It’s the fort kids use to play with all of their other toys and its uses are nearly endless. In addition to play dates and slumber parties, thanks to its compact size, Air Fort easily packs up and can go on vacation or to a friend’s house. We feel it is the most versatile and entertaining toy of the summer that every kid wants and every parent needs.”
When deflated, the Air Fort is approximately the size of a pair of folded jeans and fits into its own carrying bag. The mess-free indoor fort has no parts and features a mesh safety divider to prevent kids from reaching the fan.
