World’s Apart Pop Up Sun Tent reviewed by PWT panel member Alex Bell – aided by son Toby
The Worlds Apart Pop Up Sun Tent was delivered to us for testing on one of this summer's rare sunny weekends. It was the perfect opportunity to road test it at the beach at Camber Sands, in the park and at home in the garden.
This pop up Sun Tent is great - it's incredibly easy to use, compact, packs up nice and small and is a fun place to play in. And crucially, it has a sun protection factor of 50+.
Our active toddler was delighted to play in the tent with friends, three easily fitted inside and it was the ideal place for them to eat picnics away from sand and the midday sun.
The tent is supplied both with pegs and corner pockets which can be weighted. However, it has a secure structural frame so we only needed to peg it to avoid the coastal winds stealing it away!
The tent has a wide door which makes it easy to see what's going on inside but independent toddlers were keen to “close the doors mummy!” for a little privacy which wasn't an option with this design.
It is a nice bright red and blue with silver inner and has a groundsheet that extends outside the “front door” for play. There is a small window in the back which was a popular feature and provided necessary ventilation. The fabric is good quality and the thick nylon seems durable. The carry-case makes the item easy to take out and about on its shoulder strap.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this pop up sun tent. It is one of those purchases that's worth making when your baby is little as it will become a familiar part of family sunny days out, garden play and many indoor role-play games. For Toby it was also a very popular indoor camp set up for numerous make-believe picnics, parties and rocket ship adventures.
