Your Retail Quick Fix for the Day
I’m not much of a camper. I love the outdoors, but the whole dirty / smoky / cold at night/ put on shoes to take a pee appeal of “roughing it” eludes me.
My opinion could be swayed, however, if I was invited to park my sleeping bag in the VW Camper Tent by FieldCandy. Okay, I know, it’s just a decorated tent. But my six-year-old self, the one who used to turn washing machine boxes into clubhouses me and my friends, imagines the VW Tent lined with wall-to-wall air mattresses for the most ultimate, bounce-house slumber party ever.
And check out the London Tube Tent! Sleeps 16 comfortably (or holds 72 standing for a “commuter” experience, as the text and diagram on FieldCandy’s website cleverly demonstrates).
Even their more modest, 2-person standard sleepers (shown in a slide show below) display the same level of exuberant humor. Somehow sleeping on the ground seems a hell of a lot more fun in one of these.
Kudos to a company that can make me, Miss Anti-Camper, have second thoughts about the Great Outdoors. They should take a crack at campsite bathrooms. That would make a believer out of me.
