The cardboard structure gives children a blank canvas to get creative and create their own little holiday hideaway this December.

Easy to assemble, the den is perfect for covering with your own illustrations of polar bears, penguins, snowmen and more with pencils, pens or paints.

Once built and decorated, children can enjoy endless hours of play – helping you to keep your sanity this festive season.

And mums are already raving about the product, with one taking to the Facebook group Extreme Couponing & Bargains UK, run by money saving mum Holly Smith, to recommend it.
