Here’s a little piece of advice from the experts – you need to be your inner child’s best friend unless you want to grow into another dull grumpy adult whose entire life purpose boils down to completing all that dreary work, office hours and chores, without any time to have some genuine childlike fun. “Do not grow up, it’s a trap,” as the saying goes – and today we bring you a little something to help you stay a kid at heart forever. With Cacoon hanging tent, your inner child can play hide and seek all day and wherever they like best, because this unique hanging tent can be used outdoors and indoors alike.
Originally inspired by hanging nests of weaver birds and crafted by a U.K.-based designer team Hang-in-out, Cacoon tent is made from a durable and weatherproof fabric combo consisting of cotton and polyester treated with anti-UV and anti-mold finish (it’s also 100% machine-washable so your inner child won’t be bothered with grownup trifles such as regular cleaning, patching and hand-wash routines). Designed to hang from a single suspension point, Cacoon can be suspended either outside or inside the house (granted your ceiling is high enough) to provide you with a secluded personal cocoon where you can curl up, listen to music, read or take a nap at the end of a hard day’s work. Your children will also love it – because there’s nothing as pride-instilling and awe-inspiring as having a personal tree-house in the backyard or even bedroom. But before you discard Cacoon as just another piece in the hanging tent bandwagon, you should know that on top of its suspension tent properties, you can also use Cacoon as a regular swing chair, hammock or a hanging garden seat, and since it’s wire-based, it can also serve as a regular free-standing tent for non-tree-hanging camping trips.
Available in several different colors (natural white, orange mango, chili red, leaf green, and sky blue), Cacoon tent comes in a few different sizes. The Single Cacoon measures 1.5 meters (4.9 feet) in diameter and weighs 5 kilograms (11 pounds), and it can pack down to a convenient size of 20 x 70 centimeters (8 x 28 inches), while the Double Cacoon measures 1.8 meters (5.9 feet) in diameter, weighing some 6 kilograms (13 pounds) and can be folded down to a pack measuring 20 x 80 centimeters (8 x 31 inches). Both Cacoons are capable of withstanding up to 200 kilograms (440 pounds) of weight so they can take on either a decent-sized adult or two, or several children. There’s also the Bonsai Cacoon, an ideal suspended playground for your kids that measures 1.2 meters (4 feet) in diameter and can stand up to 100 kilograms (220 pounds) of weight. Plus, there’s a number of accessories so you may even upgrade your Cacoon with some mosquito nets, tripod stand or doors for extra comfort.
So, if you want to get a safe and versatile portable cocoon for yourself or your kids as a priceless isolated shelter for indoor and outdoor adventures, Cacoon hanging tree-house may just be what you need.
