The Monster Factory Holiday gift guide

I was given products in this post to test and give my honest feedback.  All opinions are my own.
Welcome to the 2015 Simply Me Holiday Gift guide!  The holidays should be fun.  At times finding the perfect gift, great deals, decorating and recipes can be overwhelming.  The Simply Me Blog wants to put the fun back into the Holidays so over the next several weeks I will be posting great gifts for everyone, decorating tips, recipes and everything in-between!

Unique is a word I use often, mainly because I like to surround my self with unique things.  Why be normal when you can stand out?
Recently I contacted The Monster Factory to do a review.  The main reason was I went on their site and was in love with their extraordinary items.
Okay I know a few of you are on the edge of your seat wondering what exactly is it that this company offers!?!?!
1965 VW camper themed items!
Tents(both kids and adult), pencil boxes, lunch boxes, wash bags sleeping bags and more!
Best of all they come in different colors so you can choose your favorite!  
Instead of talking about all the things offered at The Monster Factory I want to focus on the item I was able to review.

VW Camper Van Play Tent (Blue) 

Just like the adult tents, these new licensed T1 VW Camper Van Play Tents are just what every hip and happening kid needs! 

They are both perfect for indoors and outdoors use, you can set them up in the living room and have a super fun movie night!  Or even at the beach to help product little ones from the sun.
My boys like to set it up at night time outside and pretend to go camping.  (They never make it a full night that is why I say pretend) 
The pop up feature makes it easy to assemble.  All you have to do is insert a few rods to help steady it. I think it takes me all of 2 minutes to get up.
When it is up 2 kids can comfortable play inside :).  My kids love the window feature.  They pretend that they are driving the Camper.
It is made of nice durable material so you are fine to take it outside.  I would suggest not flinging it around though, the insert rods are plastic and I don't think would hold up to that kind of roughness.
Putting it away was a bit of a trick!  I watched a video and now can do it a bit better, but at first I was stumped!
So my suggestion for that would be watch the video and see how they do it before even attempting :)!!
The bag is a nice storage feature, making it easy to store when not in use.  We have a small house so I like things that can fit under the bed :)

Hey don't go yet!  I'm not done :)
The amazing people at The Monster Factory not only sent me this super cute tent to review with my kids they also sent me a pencil box and lunch box!
Isn't that awesome?!?!
My boys now pack a lunch and take crafts out with them to play in their tent.
Let me tell you a bit more about each:

The Lunch Bag is a great way to make every trip to the lunch room a road trip! 

 This super hip, VW-licensed lunch bag is made of durable, colorfast and washable Oxford Canvas and is fully insulated to keep the hot hot and the cold cold. 
 Measuring 12 x 4 x 6 and available in the classic VW colors of orange, red and blue (and a special pink) it offers more than enough room for even the biggest eaters.
I sent my son to school with his and I was impressed with how much food I could fit inside!  And with this unique lunch bag I never have to worry about putting his name on!  No one else has something this cool in class :)

The Pencil case is just as hip and is big enough to be use also as an accessory bag.  Isn't this a super cool way to keep pencils and other small objects organize?

The things I review are only 3 of many items offered at The Monster Factory.  Everything they have is fun, hip and unique.  Not to mention durable and long lasting.  

The holiday season could you imagine your kids face to find a tent under the tree that is the perfect size for them?  And then add a matching lunch bag and pencil case?  I have a feeling it would be the best gifts ever!
