Win a Dora Play Tent

My youngest used to be a big fan of Dora when he was tiny but he has moved on to other interests now but not before he accumulated a pretty big collection of Dora merchandise!  I am sure though I must have some current Dora fans amongst my followers who will love this latest prize offering from childrensbedshop.co.uk.  As you can see from the picture it will really finish off a child’s bedroom quite nicely!



I have noticed beds seem more exciting than when I was a child.  Children seem to have more options, some lucky ones get a slide or these clever play tents included.  Bunk beds free up plenty of space and the tent area can be a good den!  Least that way you would not have to keep bringing out the blankets and the pegs and coming up with a makeshift version for them.  It’s just all ready straight away for your child to discover, store toys in, have adventures and use their imagination (they can play house or pretend to be in a secret cave, basically whatever they decide!).

The prize currently worth £40 (on offer from £59.95) is covered in lots and lots of Dora’s; it looks appealing but is very practical too.  It can brighten up a room, bring a little happiness and cheer and when you want a quick fix it can also serve to tidy up their room in a hurry (just chuck all their belongings inside!).

Getting my children to bed can always be a little problematic, if they are in the middle of something they are enjoying they tend to drag their heels very reluctantly but with the addition of a play tent I might find them heading to bed a bit faster from now on!  Or they would hopefully be willing to spend more time playing in their rooms instead of getting under my feet.  My two would if they had the castle cave to explore I am sure...

If you would like to enter to win the Dora play tent then please complete the rafflecopter below by the 21st of June.

    few landscaping shrubs and landscaping plants that often involves high maintenance or look for a better, more efficient way.

    upon the way in which you manage you landscapes.
