Has anyone got one of these? And if so, is it big enough for a 10 year old boy and an adult to fit inside? DS2 loves to play games under the blankets in his bed, but it's obviously not appropriate for him to do this with anyone other than DH and I - need to find something that gives him the same sensory feedback.

We had one for dd aged 7. Not sure it would be big enough for 11 year old. We bought ds aged 11 a dark tent thingie from special direct. This is kind of the size of a one man tent so maybe a bit big ( it takes over half our dining room)! But it is effective.

Are you tall Lisad?

Cansu, I couldnt find the dark tent thing on special direct. Maybe they dont stock it any more.

Just had a look and couldn't see it either. If you google hope education and blackout tent they have one for 64.95 that looks very similar to ours.

We have this one here
I'm tiny at under 5ft blush

Ah, well I'm 5.9 so might not fit in!grin

Cansu - thanks so much for the PM - have just found the tent. That's a brilliant site - there are three possibles on there. I fancy the sensory bubble - can lie down in it, unlike the others. Many many thanks - I have spent hours searching and haven't found anything as good.
