Our Review of My Dream Tents 

There are several different themes available when it comes to choosing between the different tents available. The themes are always changing and you never know which ones are going to be available but some of the themes currently available include the following:

Space Adventure

This tent comes with a fun space adventure theme your son or daughter is sure to love including the moon, stars and other planets.

Unicorn Fantasy 

The pink unicorn theme is something that little girls may enjoy more than boys but we encourage you to not confine your daughter to this pink theme, though some girls may like it the most.

Paw Patrol Glow in the Dark

This theme is based on the popular Paw Patrol cartoon, something your little one is sure to gain a ton of excitement over.

Space Explorer Glow

This Glow Space Explorer tent is similar to the Space Adventure theme, but with a slightly different design. It includes glow in the dark stars and other space stuff such as rocket ships.

Winter Wonderland

So, with all of the awesome themes available you can be sure to pick one that your little boy or girl would love. The designs are an excellent way to encourage children to be super imaginative while playing. As a result, you can expect it to improve their creative thinking skills.

In addition to this, the various themes are made with a range of colors. So, kids can be sure to play with the color that they like the most.

All of the tent themes come with star decorations that glow in the dark. Reviews confirm that this is fantastic for lighting up the tent and making it a more magical experience for kids.

If your child is scared of the dark, these tents could enable them to become more comfortable. You can turn the lights off in their room and keep the glow in the dark star lights on to gradually help your child become less afraid of the dark.

We also liked how there’s a reading light available that can be shined onto the star decorations to make them light up even brighter. The reading light is a superb way to encourage your child to read more often.

Reading books at night inside the tent with the lights is a much more exciting way to inspire your kids to work on their reading abilities. The light used for reading can be connected onto the top of the tent for a hands free experience for children to focus on reading.

Children also have a blast detaching the light and using it as a flashlight to have fun while inside the tent.

The materials used to make the tent have been made with high grade fabrics. Therefore, parents are given the reassurance that it’s likely to last their children for years with continuous use.

Another one of the excellent features that parents have liked about these tents from the reviews is that they can be easily portable. This is because you’re able to fold them into a flat state which makes them very easy to take with you while traveling.

It’s handy for when kids want to use the tent to play at a relative’s or friend’s house. People have been surprised to find that they’re able to store the tent in bags to carry without it being too much hassle.

The folding aspect also means that you can keep the tent in storage conveniently without it taking up too much space.


  • Can provide kids with privacy 
  • Great for bedtime play 
  • Can be easily set up over your child’s twin size bed 


  • Can’t be machine washed
  • Only work well for indoor areas

What Are Dream Tents?

How to Set Up Your Dream Tent?

Start off by folding the tent out as it arrives completely flat. There are hooks included with the package that you can use to connect the tent to your child’s bed.

A manual is also available that has specific instructions on the best places to set up the hooks. Prior to letting your child get underneath the tent, be sure that it’s steady so that it doesn’t collapse.
