Does anyone know of where to get a very cheap pop up tent? I have a child who adores "den" and tent play and would be over the moon - but I really have no money.. any ideas?

I was gonna say IKEA too dinkystinky - they had a nice igloo one for about a fiver last time I went in there.

I once got a free pop up tent from Verbaudet with children of all different cultures on it - very good Ofsted wise but mindee broke it.

Wilkinsons also usually do one for about £5 I think. I went through loads of tents when i was minding. hmm

Tesco do kids tents for less than a tenner, but if money is really tight then why not stick to the good ol' blanket draped over a couple of chairs for now? As a child my sister and I used to turn most of the living room into one big tent-compound with several blankets and armchairs, plus my mum's old airer!
