UPDATE:  I picked the VW Camper Van Play Tent as one of my 2015 holiday picks before the whole emissions scandal came out in October and I still stand by my pick.  As my dad pointed out to me, in a very tongue-in-cheek way, a tent is one way to guarantee you do not have to worry about fuel economy (drum roll, please…..too soon?!?).  While that is clearly a joke, I do think and hope that VW makes a fix on their emissions on their newer model vehicles (2009 to present) and they are able to once again provide drivers with a brand that has low emissions without a defeat device on its software.

VW History

Volkswagen, which translates as “People’s Automobile” in German, was established in 1946 in post-World World II’s western Germany.  While the Volkswagon (VW) company has roots pre-WWII and during the war,  British Army officer Major Ivan Hirst, REME was officially responsible for keeping production of VW vehicles for commercial enterprise going after the war and exporting VW Beetles to the UK.  Interestingly,  post-war the VW company was offered to representatives of the American (Henry Ford was one), Australian, British, and French motor industries who all famously rejected it and VW remained a German company.  During the years of 1948-1961, VW became an icon of West German regeneration and production of the Beetle increased dramatically over the years.  Volkswagen of America was formed in April 1955 as reputation for the vehicle increased and sales ads for the Beetle became as popular as the car itself.   On February 17 1972, the Beetle (also known as a ‘Bug’) beat the world production record for the most-produced, single make of car in history and the product line for the VW has continued to expand to modern day.

VW Camper Van Play Tent

I am a huge VW junkie.  My very first car was a stick-shift green VW Rabbit that was older than I was and it was the first time I actually loved a car.  From the time he was little, my older brother had specific makes and models of cars that he loved and I never paid attention to whether a car was a Porsche or a Chevy until I started to drive.  I passed my driver’s license in my VW Rabbit and I’m proud to say that in the time I owned the car, I only stalled out ONCE going up the very large hills (aka mountains) around SE Ohio and West Virginia.  I still have a dream to own a VW Bug, but that’s another blog post waiting to happen!  Instead, as a parent, I get to live vicariously through my kids and I knew that the VW Camper Van Play Tent would not only be a huge hit with my kiddos for a holiday gift, it would also be a great way for my husband and I to play pretend with them.

Not to be outdone by their parents, these new licensed T1 VW Camper Van Play Tents are just what every hip and happening kid needs! These play tents are perfect indoors and outdoors and are new mini-me versions of the iconic 1965 Split Screen VW Camper Van that are just too cool for school.  You can purchase the tents in light blue, red, baby pink, and yellow.  They are packaged in a stylish and easy to store in an adorable VW Wheel bag.  Each tent accommodates up to three children comfortably (or in our case, two adults and two very small children).  If you are looking for the perfect holiday gift that will be fun for the whole family, check out The Monster Factory’s website on how you can order your own (or EVEN get a VW tent for yourself in an ADULT sized version – wow)!
