Big Game Hunter Wigwam teepees

The Win a Wigwam Giveaway Competition

At the bottom of this post is a chance for you to win your own Wigwam teepee from Big Game Hunters via a Gleam widget.


Growing up, I always desperately wanted a playhouse for the garden. Sadly though, we always either couldn’t afford one or lived in places without gardens whilst I was young enough for one.


I wish that Wigwam teepee tents had been a ‘thing’ and easily available back then, as they really are a more affordable way to have a ‘playhouse’. Not only that but, they just look so much fun and can be made so cosy inside. Seven-year-old me would have filled one with cushions and teddy bears for a cosy reading den.


The win a wigwam competition with Big Game Hunter


It actually sounds quite tempting now. I was offered the chance to review something from Big Game Hunters recently and I did contemplate some of their giant garden games for the boys. However, our garden is far from finished and definitely not ready for any additions.


I therefore, thought that instead I could make another child’s playhouse dream come true in the form of one of the gorgeous Wigwam teepees that Big Game Hunters sell. You can enter via the Gleam widget below and choose which of their £59.99 Wigwam teepee you would like to choose if you win. If you look on the Big Game Hunters site, you can see the choices. Personally I love the Aztec one.


The great thing about play tents like this in my opinion, is that they encourage children to play outside – although they often look cute in a playroom. It gives children some protection from the sun as well, but most importantly they really encourage their imaginations. Role play is often a big part of childhood and play homes really can add to that.

Big Game Hunters Wigwam Teepee


  • Plutonium Sox

    Oh these are amazing Stevie, such fab tents. I always wanted a pony – actually I still do, never got it! And This would be for Libby as Lia already has one similar with her name on it.

  • Alica

    I always wanted a Mr Frosty and never got one as a child but my hubby bought it for me for Christmas a few years ago and I soon realised I hadn’t missed out on much lol

  • Anthony Harrington

    I always wanted real life Koala Bear, my auntie in Australia told me she would send me one, those days parcels came by boat and took forever, so every single day I waited on the post. After around 4 months a note came from the Post Office that an airmail package was waiting to be collected, this was it, all the way from Australia my very own real-life living Koala Bear! I still feel the bitter disappointment of be handed a small flat parcel which contained not my Koala but a set of Hansel and Gretal colouring pencils.

  • Pickinguptoys

    I don’t remember not getting anything that I really wanted,probably the latest trainers or something daft but I’d love to win for my daughter she’s forever making dens and hiding away!

  • Martina Pichova

    I wanted a dolls house and didn’t get one so I bought one for my daughter this Christmas (so I could play with it). The wigwam would be great for both my kids.

  • Elizabeth Smith

    I really wanted a pair of green wellys with protuding frogs eyes but my mum said that they were too expensive for something I’d grow out of before too much use. We often joke about it.

  • Jane Willis

    I wanted a Sindy doll. my parents got me Tressy instead, thinking they were all the same thing, but I knew deep down inside that they weren’t, and all my friends had Sindys.

  • Angela Treadway

    I always wanted a tree house, never had one but my next door neighbour did so at least i got to use his

    Lovely prize, I always wanted a dolls house – never got one but always love looking at them in shops to this day xx

  • Danielle Spencer

    I always wanted a Baby Annabel, I remember saying that I didn’t want to be a parent but I wanted a baby Annabel that cried etc. Strange child I was lol. I also would have liked the Sylvanian department store and my friend wanted the mansion – guess who received which for Christmas, we didn’t swap though.

  • Jamielee Wells

    I was very lucky as a child and cannot think of anything that i wanted that i didn’t get – gosh i sound so spoilt lol. However if i won this i would give it to my son and daughter – they are very close in age and play very well together (most of the time haha) i think these tents are great and help to develop their role play skills

  • Rob Hutchinson

    I once asked for a Sinclair ZX81 for Christmas, having seen it in action around a friend’s house. I didn’t get one, though. Instead, my parents completely surprised me by giving me the more advanced and more expensive ZX Spectrum. I was utterly gobsmacked. I think my mum wanted me to use it to help do my homework and become someone like Bill Gates, but I just played games on it.

  • jo liddement

    I really wanted a microscope but i think my parents thought it wasn’t a girly enough toy so i never got one :(

  • Ruth Harwood

    I always wanted an etch-a-sketch, but sadly it was never forthcoming :( but hey, we can’t have it all, eh?!!

  • Jo Carroll

    I can’t honestly remember anything specific that I craved but never got although I’m sure my mum would say I wanted everything in the toy shop when I was smaller. It’s a shame you don’t get too many small toy retailers on the high streets anymore…I hate doing the huge ‘warehouse’ toy shopping experience with my little’s so cold and inpersonal? He’d love this Wigwam though and it would certainly cut down on my bed-sheet buying expenses ;)

  • Lorna Ledger

  • Mummy on a Budget

    I went through a phase of wanting a horse as did lots of horse riding. Was never going to happen!

    Would love to win this prize for my LO’s upcoming birthday. Can just picture my 2 having lots of adventures in it together.

  • judy kennedy

    To be honest I can remember ever really wanting something. I had so many toys like plasticine, lego and I liked to draw. I had a little yellow playhouse and we used the wardrobe as a lift with hand made buttons. However I do look at toys I would like to buy such as robotic toys or flying drones and usually they are really expensive. I look for novelty or toys I remember I loved as a child such as fuzzy felt. The live pets are a nice range.

  • Harline

    I’d like to win this for my grandson William. Has a child I wanted a real monkey I know not pets but has a child and now I love them I got a toy monkey that use to hang off tables ect I was a little disappointed he wasn’t real but I had him for years

  • Simon C

    I always wanted a soda stream machine. The adverts made it look so good.

    But I changed my mind when I actually got to taste a drink made with one! Brleagh. To be fair, it may not have been the fault of the machine, but it did put me off.

  • Katrina Fox

    I wanted a Lucy Locket at the height of it’s popularity and my poor mum was distraught at not being able to get one. Santa did write me a very nice letter of apology though!

  • Tracey Davies

    I always always wanted a brown school satchel! (80 kid!) I admired the other children’s every day. 5 year old me could barely function I was so desperate to have one but never said anything to my mum as there was no spare cash for such frivolous things. My nan came to visit and finally got me to confess what was wrong and she went and bought it for me! Best gift I ever had. I treasured that bag! The wig was would have a great life with my wonderful 2.5 year old son Finlay ☺

  • Amy Wright

    I always wanted Adidas trainers instead of four stripes but my mum could never afford them. Now, my children are very lucky in the clothes departments! I would love this for my son, Daniel. It’s his 5th birthday on 18th April.

  • Bernice Cockrell

    We never really asked for things as kids, we were happy with anything that Father Christmas brought. I’m one of six children so money was always tight…but we always got an apple and a tangerine in our stockings! Loved it!

Would love a wigwam for my 2 little boys, they love making and hiding in forts already so this would be ideal.

  • Sirley Young

    I really wanted a tamagotchi, as everyone in my school seemed to have one. My mom couldn’t afford it so I never had one.

  • Miss Tracy Hanson

    I always wanted a pony/horse. Didn’t help that my grandparents lived 10 minutes walk away from some stables. I had to wait until I was 28 before I got one. :) He was definitely worth the wait and one I had ridden on holiday for the last 3 years. He was supposedly coming home for the winter (as they loaned them out) but he stayed. Had 10 lovely years with him.
