    Not your Teepee-Cal Christmas Gift

    Not your Teepee-Cal Christmas Gift

    THE PERFECT GIFT FOR YOUR LITTLE HUMAN THIS CHRISTMAS 

    Yes, it’s that time of the year again and we know how much you have on your plate before the Christmas party even begins! But fret not because we’re here to give you a hand at being your little human’s favourite gift-giver this year. 

    NOT YOUR TEEPEE-CAL GIFT

    Looking back, we’re sure you could remember that moment when you got a gift that opened up a whole new world for you. Maybe it was Christmas Day when you found nothing under the tree with your name on it but dad took you outside and showed you your new treehouse. Maybe it was when your favourite aunt got you that beautiful dollhouse and playtime was never the same again. 

    It wasn’t just a gift that was given to you, it was an experience and moments that you would cherish forever. That’s what a Cattywampus teepee is all about. It’s more than just a teepee, it’s a world of imagination that your little human can roam and play in. 

    Kids Teepee Tent Christmas Gift Cattywampus

    THE PERFECT SURPRISE TO WAKE UP TO

    A Cattywampus teepee is more than just what it seems. It can be a castle or a rocket ship, the secret door to a land of dancing dinosaurs or a hideout to watch Mr.Roscoe, the dog, dig a hole in the backyard to hide his toys. It’s all that and anything your little human wants it to be.

    That’s the beauty of a teepee - it creates a space for the wildest imagination and at the same time, can be transformed into a space for tea parties or a nook for you to read your little human their favourite book.

     Kids Teepee Tent Christmas Gift Cattywampus

    No matter how old they are, every child loves that sacred space where they’ll create unforgettable memories with friends and family. If you’re expecting a newborn, imagine all the pictures you can take with your tiny bean wiggling around and giggling in the teepee. It’s the start of all the magical journeys they’ll discover in that precious space.

    Imagine watching them grow up swooshing imaginary airplanes or finding little fairies in that same space. Imagine capturing those precious moments you can cherish forever - it’s a gift both for you and for them. Plus, if you’re looking for that one gift to please more than one little human, this is it! It’s the one teepee that creates countless hours of fun for little ones.

    SETTING UP FOR A CATTYWAMPUS CHRISTMAS

    A Cattywampus teepee is an incredible gift in more ways than one. It’s a stunning setup for Christmas morning and it comes pre-assembled so all that’s left to do is take it out of the box and hide the presents inside! If you want to make it extra special, add a little tinsel or fairy lights for a complete Christmas vibe!

    Picture the faces of your family when they wake up to see what Santa has brought! All that’s left to do in that moment is sit with your loved ones in that special space you’ve created, bask in love and warmth, and of course, open up all the presents! 

    Wishing you a Merry Christmas

    Yes, you read that right - two exclusive Cattywampus designs that your little human can play, explore and grow in! After plenty of research, discussions and countless plates of cookies over meetings, we’ve discovered the designs we’d love to share with you. 

    Are you as ready as we are? Here we go!

    Pure and elegant, perfect for every interior - Say hello to Snow Dust 

    Kids Teepee Snow Dust Christmas Gift Cattywampus

    We’ve had countless requests asking for an all-white Teepee and we’re proud to say, you are heard! We understand that every home and space is unique, like a precious snowflake and we wanted to create a Teepee that could be customised and styled to suit your very own space. However, it wasn’t just about finding the perfect cloth in white! Most might assume ‘white is white’ but there are actually hundreds of shades! We made sure that we found the perfect shade to fit any home and decor. We’re over the moon as we introduce this all-white 100% cotton canvas with crisp white stitches. It still features all the things you loved about our Teepees - window with a flap, a pocket, ties at the entrance and of course, it still comes pre-assembled,

    One of the highlights of the white Teepee is being able to add as much or as little colour to it. If you’re going for a nurturing, quiet space for your little human, we suggest going with pastel shades of mint, pink and grey. Add some soft pillows and cuddly throws to create that perfect, safe hideaway for all days. 

    The perfect grey nest that’s here to stay - Introducing Wild Dove 

    Wild Dove Kids Teepee Christmas Gift Cattywampus

    Ah, grey, it’s that peaceful place between white and black. It’s a neutral and comforting colour that’s a rising trend in interior design. When we were thinking of the perfect grey, we wanted something that was unique, soft, and would blend perfectly with your little human’s decor. We had so much fun finding the perfect shade and discovered that it truly works with everything! The colour itself is calming and nurturing, helping you and your little one slow down from a full day of play and running around. The Wild Dove teepee is a sanctuary for both you and your little one and it’s perfectly easy to set up as it comes pre-assembled and features all your favourite things about our Teepees.

    Wild Dove Kids Teepee Christmas Gift Cattywampus 

    The Wild Dove Teepee is equally easy to style and we love a pop of emerald green to go with it. If you’re looking for something softer, try pairing the setup with baby blue pillows, white throws or even a blush pink blanket. Just picturing it makes us feel all warm and fuzzy, already!

    We can’t wait for you and your little human to enjoy these designs as much as we do, so we’d like to do something really special and make sure you get it in time for Christmas! All you have to do is pre-order your choice of Teepee now and we’ll deliver it in the first week of December. It would make the perfect Christmas gift for your little human to wake up to and begin exploring a whole new world.

    Say hello to Ivory Mist

    Say hello to Ivory Mist



    The Cattywampus fairies have heard your requests, read your e-mails and seen your wishes written in the night sky. We’ve gathered with the experts of all things pretty and fun and decided that we’ll be launching an exclusive lace teepee. 

    We decided we had to go back to the drawing board for this one. We wanted something trendy yet luxurious-looking. After looking through hundreds of different lace designs, from wedding dresses to the catwalk, we found the perfect material and we’re elated to bring it to you! Say hello to Ivory Mist.

    Kids Teepee Christmas Gift Lace Cattywampus

    This Limited Edition Teepee brought back plenty of memories for us. It reminded us of Mum’s lace table cloths and the princess tents we created from it. We remember hours spent filling that special tent with dolls and cushions as we had tea with our friends.

    With the Ivory Mist Teepee, we wanted little humans to be able to create their very own special memories in a chic and elegant setting. Even with such delicate lace, we have made sure we kept all your favourite features - from the window with flaps to the ties on the front door, we made sure this pre-assembled Teepee could go straight to play when your little one opens up the box. 

    Kids Lace Teepee Tent Christmas Present Cattywampus

    The Ivory Mist lace has an incredibly delicate look and we love styling it with equally soft tones of soft pink and a touch of gold to bring out the elegance. A soft grey play mat would be the perfect base to fill the space. 

    We can’t wait for you and your little human to enjoy these designs as much as we do, so we’d like to do something really special and make sure you get it in time for Christmas! All you have to do is pre-order your choice of Teepee now and we’ll deliver it in the first week of December. It would make the perfect Christmas gift for your little human to wake up to and begin exploring a whole new world.

    How to set up your Cattywampus Teepee

    How to set up your Cattywampus Teepee



    Remember building blanket forts as a kid? Hiding behind Mum’s couch and escaping into a different world where the elephants have stripes like bumblebees?

    What about those moments spent creating floral wreaths and instantly transforming yourself into the Forest Queen with your helpful sidekick, Tigger who could bounce on his tail!

    There is so much joy and creativity in imagination, it is so important to give kids the space to foster the feeling and have fun while they’re at it. This is why we’ve created the perfect Kids Teepee Tent and it’s here to tell you all about its wonderful self! Here we go:

    Hello! Like everyone in the real world, I get my portrait taken too (see above) and I was dressed up really well by the humans at Cattywampus. I’d love to see what could do with your very own teepee but first, a little bit about me! 

    Made from 100% cotton canvas, I am a durable structure that can withstand the craziest of fun and time travel through space! My beech timber poles keep me grounded and rubber stoppers make sure your little ones are kept safe as their imaginations run wild. I also make the perfect snooze and slumber zone after all that fun!

    Now, let me tell you a little bit more about what I’m like on the inside. I’ve got a window with a flap so you can have a little peek into your little human’s world (shh..I won’t tell) and if you look closely, you’ll see a Secret Pocket for all the treasures they’ll discover on their adventures.

    I even come with a gold foiled name card with your tent (FREE with every purchase, so don’t forget to add your little human’s name during checkout)!

    SETTING UP YOUR TENT OF IMAGINATION

    Just take me out of my tube, spread me out and adjust my rope slightly so I can look my best! Here’s a little hint: for me to sit correctly, my rope should look like it does in the picture below. If you do move my rope up, it’ll make the play space smaller or if you push it down, it makes the space larger so you get more room for your imagination. Setting up a Teepee has never been so easy! I come pre-assembled, so it only takes a few steps before your space station is all ready for takeoff.

    Aside from imagination, you can also fill this Teepee with your favourite treasures! It could be Fairy Lights to send signals to your winged friends as they take flight or cushions so you can lay back and stare at the universe you’ve created. Maybe add in a play mat or throw rugs so it feels really snug and a string of garlands to remind you there’s plenty of universes to explore!

    Of course, it’s impossible to forget your little human’s favourite toys – whether it’s a truck, a doll, a superhero or a happy duck, make sure they’re taking their best friend on every adventure.

    Give your child the space they dream of and a space where all their most amazing dreams can come true. 

    Check out how easy I am to assemble watching our video below:

    The Teepee of Endless Adventures

     

    It all starts with a little imagination

    It all starts with a little imagination



    Imagination – it is the spark that starts it all. It’s what turns a box into a race car, a cloth into a cape or a laundry basket into an impenetrable princess castle! It’s also what sparked the thought in famous creators, a simple “what if?”, a hope for the future and a belief that you can make it happen.

    It’s the ability to see what the world needs and answer it in our own unique ways. Some days, the world needs ballerina dinosaurs to show our little humans anything is possible. Other days, the world just needs a safe space where you can be whoever you want to be but one thing remains true - every day, the world needs a little more imagination.

    There’s so much happening around us these days, we often lose sight of the magic and wonder we once had as kids. We forget what it was like to serve up tea and biscuits to Mr.Brown Bear because he never misses a tea party.

    We forget what it was like to stare up at the clouds and see a bunny with the biggest, fluffiest tail Somewhere along the way, we traded our crayons for keyboards and left behind the courage to imagine that anything and everything is possible, like a rainbow-coloured mountain.

    That’s the magic of imagination and why it matters, because it’s the first page of every amazing story. Let’s bring it back for our little humans, and for us.  

    So why does Imagination matter? 

    Imagination sparks Imagination 


    A small thought could be the start of something bigger. It’s the ability to imagine if we could see another person across the world simply with a push of a button – Apple’s FaceTime.  It’s the imagining that we could soar like the birds – airplanes, that we could have almost all the answers – Google! It’s holding space for the mind to wander and discover what the world needs and then making it happen.

     

    Imagination brings hope

    It allows us to look at a situation and think of an alternative. Imagine no terrorism, poverty and pain. Imagine if we just started by being kinder to each other. Imagine what that would do. Imagination changes things and allows us to see a different picture – it brings hope that things can get better.

    Imagination is pure magic 

    After a long day at work, imagine coming home to your little human who’s invites you into their world. In this imaginary world, there’s no stress, just best friends, beds made of cotton candy, a boat that looks like an eggplant. Odd, we know but doesn’t it put a smile on your face? Imagine them taking you through this world and imagine the weight of the real world melt away.

    STOP Imagining.. 

    We know, the headline is pretty controversial but what we really mean to say is, YOU can make it happen! There’s no need to imagine all of this because it can come true, and it all starts with a teepee… but not just any teepee.
    This is the teepee that sparks imagination. One that allows you to forget the world outside as you escape behind magic doors to meet your funny friends. It’s that safe space where you loved to be as a kid, where you could be anyone, anything and anywhere!

    Kids still long for a secure spot where they can fully be their wonderful selves. It’s those moments where we peek into their rooms and see them lost in another world. That’s what this treat-of-a-teepee is for.

    There’s no need for sewing scraps of old sheets together, just add a simple and adorable teepee to the room and you’re soon off on new, exciting adventure!

    Teepees are just the start for us in Cattywampus but it stemmed from a vision of our imaginations and we want to share it with you! It’s a beautiful space for you and your little human to share some quiet time together, to read, play or put on a puppet show for daddy!

    It could also simply be a space to relax or used as a shaded outdoor play tent! On some lucky nights, you can have a ‘sleepover’ in the backyard and share your favourite imaginative stories.

    These ideas are just the beginning because once again, with a teepee in your home and hands, it’s all left up to your imagination!

    So, tell us, what you’d like to create or what you think your child would discover and innovate in their Teepee of Tremendous Treasures.
