Every childhood should consist of imagination, dreams and a little magic. Growing up in an era before tablets, smartphones and artificial intelligence, with three siblings, pretend play and imagination was everything! A favorite activity was building forts and pretending we lived in them. We would even make them in the backyard and no one could enter without a password.
The indoor forts took a lot of creativity, with lamps, chairs, blankets, cushions and coffee tables. We would have campouts and do our homework under lamplights in our forts.
I love trying to re-create my childhood through the eyes of Kolton and Shayne. Infact, one of my favorite things about having children is becominga child all over again.
While by no means do I consider myself a “master” at fort building anymore, JumpOff Jo has made it easier for parents and children to build a living room fort without all of the stress. The JumpOff Jo Blanket Fort includes three blankets, which can each tie together, as well as weights to attach so you don’t have to worry about your fort falling over.
I also love how easy it is to store these blankets and weights. JumpOff Jo comes with a bag and the blankets are so easy to fold up and put away until next time.
Good, healthy fun is key to a happy childhood. And when cleanup is easy, it is even better. Stay tuned for more fun fort pictures from my princess and superhero!

This is so fun! We love making forts, but it can often make enough of a mess that I don’t suggest it often. This is perfect.
I agree! I was always reluctant with fort building since I knew I would spend the whole night cleaning it up and moving furniture back. These blankets are great because they are so easy to store. I think we might order more and expand our fort building 🙂
My favorite part about these forts are the thin materials used. I remember how stuffy blankets were where we used them for forts growing up. I will definitely be purchasing one soon!
These look really good. I believe stimulating a child’s imagination is so important & anything that helps do this is a total win
How cool are these blankets?! I would have loved something like this when I was a kid!
What a fabulous idea!
I don’t have any kids, but I will definitely be sharing this with some of my friends who do.
Thanks for sharing!

this s an awesome gift for a toddler! we have tried fort building but its not as fun tearing it down
I love how interactive tablets are, but I love the idea of kids playing and using their imagination without them.
This is something I just know my kids would love.They love nothing more than building forts and dens and using imaginative play to set up some fun situations!
Indoor forts are the ultimate kiddie fun! The one in your photos is so pretty. Fun idea!
This is cute and looks like so much fun! My boys would love this!
We love building sheet forts at home and in fact are making one today as the weather is miserable outside. Going to use torches and everything!
I LOVE MAKING FORTS! Kids need to make them more often. I agree pretend play growing up was so much better than just hanging out on a Ipad all day!
I love how you’ve created a little hangout place for them to enjoy. We did this for the kids when they were this small.
This looks so cool, wish they had such things when I was kid x
