As we prepared for our summer holiday in France, we were somewhat nervous about how to keep our son entertained. At around nine months old, he was very active and constantly on the move, but clearly couldn’t be out in the sun for any length of time.
The last thing we wanted was to be stuck in the shade all day ourselves, or constantly having to rearrange parasols to ensure that he was safe from the sun…..
We decided to investigate “beach tents”, with the thought of combining this with his play pen so that he had an outside space where he could play safely in the shade.
After a bit of research we ended up choosing TAGVO Pop Up Beach Tent and combining this with our Summer Infant Pop ‘N Play Playpen. The result was absolutely fantastic and the little man played happily out on our terrace in the shade for hours whilst we could chill out with a glass of wine in the sun next to him.
I would highly recommending these as they are also great for taking to the beach as a bit of sun shelter on hot days. We now take ours on every holiday and can pop it up within 30 seconds with no hassle at all.
Enjoy the sun!
