Play Tent/Den for a 7 year old

I have space in my DS room for a tepee/tent in the corner. I was thinking of him having it as a space that he could chill in, play, read books etc. The only thing is all those I see within budget are either babyish or pretty small. Anyone got any good recommendations for something that would fit purpose for a growing 7 year old.

TIA

The Ikea circus tent is supposed to be large

There is also this tent, one of the people in the reviews said they brought it for a seven year old. He would need a lamp or torch in their to read books though. That might increase the fun factor

We got a large one of these last year, with a load of light up bits and pieces: www.sensorytoywarehouse.com/product/dark-den/

I can stand up inside it!

It does occasionally take on a slightly sinister air though... all that dark fgrin

can't link but if you put teepees for kids into Amazon there are some large teepees have got an admittedly very pink one for my daughter base is 6 feet by 6 feet so should fit her for a while!

Best thing we ever had like that was a washing-machine sized cardboard box, that I'd cut a door in and that sat neatly in the corner of the living room. We got years of value out of that. It got painted several times, too - it actually looked pretty good in the corner!

If you can't get a humungous box, then various people do cardboard rockets, etc, that act as dens:

And ooh, I like this ikea one (very knightly): www.ikea.com/gb/en/catalog/products/80247818/
