How to build the Traditional Garden Games WIGWAM Play Tent

Building our Wigwam Plat Tent is child's play!  Simply follow the steps below or the YouTube video, and in no time the kids will be having lots of fun playing make-believe with our top selling native American themed Wigwam Play Tent.

Have more fun - why not get the children involved in building the Wigwam play tent! 

Building your Wigwam Play Tent:

  1. Empty the contents of the Wigwam Play Tent box
  2. Lay all components out on the floor/ground
  3. First, build the tent base frame: Insert all the rods into the connecting joints. The rods will slightly bend to help form a circle
  4. Insert the base frame into the Wigwam and securely tie at the tent opening
  5. Now to build the tent's upright frame: Connect the 4 long upright rods
  6. Connect the 4 short curved rods to the 4 long upright rods.
  7. Insert the 4 top ends of the long upright rods to the black connecting disc - you will now have the tent's upright frame
  8. Place the structure inside the Wigwam tent - pointy end in first!!
  9. Connect the upright structure to the tent's base frame
  10. Tie the upright structure to the Wigwam fabric
  11. The accessories can be used to either 'dress' the Wigwam or to use for dressing-up

Remember those HAPPY childhood memories?

Traditional Garden Games Get Outside and Play

Remember those long summer days with friends - climbing trees, building a den, skimming stones at the water's edge and making daisy chains in the garden or park?  Ahhhh, now those were happy childhood memories!

Children don’t remember their best day of TV! Looking back at your childhood, sitting and playing a video game or watching television certainly isn’t what you reminisce about. And while times have changed from the sepia-tinged recollections of our youth, children today still love nothing more than getting active in the fresh air. But we certainly do remember all the fun and adventure of playing outside with friends and family!

Traditional Garden Games' eclectic range of outdoor games can not only help promote a healthier lifestyle but can also recreate the fun and adventure of playing outside with friends and family.  They're even a great way to provide a digital detox - even if it's for an hour or two!  So this Spring and Summer, start making happy childhood memories and keep everyone entertained with Traditional Garden Games.

Traditional Garden Games; Warehouse Upgrade October 2018

Over the last 12 months, Traditional Garden Games has been developing its warehouse facilities for distribution direct to the trade, of its range of over 60 garden games.

In early 2018, the company introduced a further 10 games to its collection. With a global reach, demand for our new additions has been exceptionally positive, with Big Fish Little Fish, Tug of War, Wooden Boule and Horse Shoe Pitching already proving to be top sellers! We also secured exclusive UK and Ireland distribution rights to the Sembra 'sow and grow your own' kits. With all this new stock, we were struggling to find suitable storage space!

After a bumper season, during September and October Traditional Garden Games has been busy focusing on upgrading its storage capabilities by extending the warehouse's racking system. The company has also improved and adapted other lean warehouse management systems - allowing the team to fulfill orders (large or small) effectively and efficiently.  With our centralised warehousing facilities, Traditional Garden Games can now seamlessly distribute pallet and carton orders.  Our improved pick and pack facility, also allows the business to offer dropshipping services for trade customers.

A big shout out to our super organised and hardworking Warehouse Manager, Danielle - who prepared the area for the new racking.  And of course, thank you to Racking & Shelving NI for safely assembling the shelving units in the timeframe given.

Coming soon:  Videos of our 'lean' warehouse systems.

We LOVE what customers are saying about our games

Traditional Garden Games product reviews

This year, Traditional Garden Games introduced a number of new games to the market.  As a wholesaler, we're so excited to share with you, consumer product reviews for a number of products currently retailed by one of our customers.

Traditional garden Games Big Fish Little Fish

Big Fish Little Fish: SIMPLEST GAMES ARE THE BEST

'My two boys absolutely loved this game. They tried it on the floor seeing who could get the biggest number on the back of the fish. The game is really well made and good quality. So many different games you could play with it and it is educational too with the different numbers on each fish they can count and add up their score'

Traditional Garden Games Junior Skittles

Junior Skittles: LOVELY PASTEL COLOURS

'I have to say, I wasn't sure what to expect with this in terms of the quality but, it's so well made! My children love bowling and they really enjoyed playing with this. The colours are brilliant and the skittles are made of sturdy wood. Well packaged and a great little toy to keep the children entertained!'

Traditional Garden Games play parachute

Giant Play Parachute 3.4m: SUCH FUN AND REALLY ROBUST

'So, off we went to Grandma and Grandads for the day and took the parachute with us. It folds relatively small so easy to pack. My son and daughter (ages 4 and 2) loved it! 4 adults grabbed handles and shook as they dived in and out underneath. We then put teddies on the top and watched them bounce. It's well made and I have no concerns of durability. Plenty of stitching.'

Traditional Garden Games Wooden Dominoes 

Wooden Dominoes: THE DOMINOES ARE GREAT FUN

'The dominoes are great! With them being wooden, they are not flimsy and are heavy so don’t blow outside! Also they’re great to use indoors, (whether that is playing dominoes or building towers like my 4 year old!) With them being big, they’re also great to get little ones practicing counting with them! I would recommend, as a garden or inside game!'
