Katherine Huck, FortamajigKatherine Huck, Fortamajig The inventor is Katherine Huck, a mom of three who wanted to create a safe, portable way for kids to build their own play spaces. She designed an 8' x 8' square of polyester fabric with a built-in door and window. Velcro loops make it easy to attach the Fortamajig to whatever structure is handy - a chair, table leg, doorknob, tree branch, fencepost, you name it. So you won't be dealing with duct tape attached to the upholstery either. Kids can use their imagination to build a tent, tunnel, or fort in any spot, indoors or outside. You can tie it to a pair of beach chairs for instant shade at the beach, or extend it from a curtain rod to make a canopy. It's machine washable, which makes cleanup a cinch if playtime gets messy. So round up the cavalry and start building!
