We have been avid watchers of BBC 1’s Dragons Den for a while now and since having Mia, we are always more interested in the innovative children’s products that come along (and food products of course!!) so when we spotted Effie Moss and her beautiful handmade Teepee’s winning investment from none other than Dragon Deborah Meaden, we knew we wanted to find out more about her Teepee’s! Just For Tiny People (JFTP) was founded by Effie Moss who, with the help of a wonderful team of people, hand makes beautifully designed Teepee’s especially for children.

I have followed Effie’s journey from Dragons Den and watched her business become the amazing success it is today so when Effie contacted me directly to see if I would like to review one of her products, I was more than excited! In fact I couldn’t quite believe it at first! I had presumed that I would be reviewing the new wooden toys that had just been launched so I was even more excited when I was told I should expect a Teepee to arrive within the next week! So what exactly is a JFTP Handmade Teepee?

When, 4 days later, our Teepee arrived I was far more excited than even Mia was! The Teepee itself comes boxed ‘ready-to-go’ which is great as there’s no working out where bits go and no annoying instructions to read! The poles are all pre-tied so all you need to do is pull them away from each other and stand the Teepee up!  The Teepee we were sent is a beautiful pink and lace design with a spotty pink heart on the front. The lace is tied with pink ribbon and can be undone to ‘close’ the front up. I must admit it is bigger than I had imagined it would be so I have had to move Mia’s room around a couple of times to find the perfect spot, however she will not be growing out of it anytime soon and it means she will have years of play in there! Also, the Teepee’ can be stored away really easily if you don’t want it up all of the time which is really useful.

I’m really impressed with the Teepee itself; it really is very pretty and very girly which suits Mia (and me!) perfectly! It is also really well-made and you can see and feel the quality of the fabrics used. It took me a couple of goes at getting it right in terms of how it sits, partly because I’m a bit of a perfectionist and partly as Mia kept trying to move it as she was getting used to it being in her bedroom but she has left it alone recently so it stays exactly where I placed it!

All Teepee’s are handmade and so take a bit of time to make, as you would expect from any quality product. Expected delivery dates are stated on the website when you purchase a Teepee but if you need a specific date then all you have to do is let them know and they will do their best to fulfil it as best they can. There are also ‘ready to go’ Teepee’s available and these are clearly stated as such on the website. All Teepee’s and accessories are handmade in the UK and they are all unique. No two are the same which means that you end up with an amazing Teepee for your child that no one else will have, which I think is a definite plus! The Teepee’s themselves range from £99-£185 with 2 sizes (Magical and Midi), and a ridiculous choice of fabrics available. You would be hard pushed to not find a design you liked put it that way!

There are numerous matching accessories available such as; floor mats, plumfy cushions and scatter cushions, which just add to the beautiful Teepee’s themselves. Delivery is by courier for a Teepee (costs applied at checkout) and royal mail for everything else on the website. Our Teepee retails currently at £125 but with sales on stock regularly, a great deal to combine a midi Teepee, 2 scatter cushions and floor mat, and not to mention the fact that there are payment plans (limited availability) for special occasions, there really is no excuse not to place an order!

As well as Teepee’s and their matching accessories, JFTP do beautiful wooden toys, twinkly lights (perfect for Teepee’s!), and they have just launched a new range of princess dresses! There really is something for every child and you know that it is going to be amazing quality! Mia absolutely adores her Teepee and when she’s not downstairs playing, she can be found upstairs sat in it with her soft toys, chatting away to them. She still asks me now after almost 3 weeks if she can sleep in it! Mia’s teepee is just missing some accessories and we currently have our eyes on a matching floor mat, as it’s just missing a beautiful, handmade base mat to it now!

    I have seen so many gorgeous teepees about and this one does look lovely! Gorgeous lace and I love the pics of them in it! #KCACOLS

    This is so incredibly cute. I’ve always thought that the tee pee’s like this were cute. Been thinking about getting one. These look practical and easy to put together. #KCACOLS

  • Bridie By The Sea

    Oh I love this and just know my little girl would adore it. It’s so pretty, the perfect hiding spot for all her cuddlies. Thanks for linking up to #KCACOLS hope you come back again next Sunday! x

  • OddHogg

    It looks fab! I quite like the idea of a teepee for Piglet when he’s older – there’s plenty space in his bedroom for one and it would make a great den. Do you think its acceptable to order the same pink and lace one as you’ve got for him?! It looks so pretty #KCACOLS

  • Geraldine

    So beautiful. I imagine these will end up being family heirlooms because they are so well crafter #KCACOLS

  • Tori @ The Mama Nurse

    I bet my daughter would love one of those! I love the adorable pic of your daughter lying down in one. I bet it’s hard to get her out of there for meals and bedtime, lol!
