Get ready for the tree house revolution! Tree houses have stood the test of time as the ultimate possession in a child's life. They offer a private space for play or lounging and let's be honest, make the owner the most popular kid on the block! Who wouldn't want one?

Well, maybe adults don't. Depending on your carpentry skills, tree houses can be an eyesore, potentially dangerous and a permanent structure that lasts longer than the kids are kids.

Enter the TreePod, the ultimate space for kids to play and relax without any of the hassle, expense or commitment of a traditional tree house. We've come up with a design for a one-piece fabric pod with an aluminum frame that's quickly assembled - just once. It's easily hung from a mature, healthy tree branch and, Voila!... an instant tree house.

We've been working on the design of the TreePod for well over a year to ensure we create a safe and high-quality product. The aluminum ring frames support the floor and spacious interior above to accommodate several children. The durable fabric is fire-retardant, and treated to be UV and water-resistant.

FEATURES

  • Double-sided zipper door to easily open and close
  • Mesh windows for ventilation and to keep out those pesky bugs
  • Storage pocket to hold your things
  • Central hanging loop for a lantern
  • Retractable ladder for easy access
  • Guy lines and stakes to secure in place and prevent tilting or spinning

SPECIFICATIONS

  • Dimensions - 5ft diameter x 7.5ft high
  • Weight - 12lbs
  • Hang with door no higher than 4ft from the ground
  • Supports up to 400lbs with a 3X safety ratio

The TreePod is designed to be hung from a sturdy tree branch, but there will also be a stand for use indoors, on a deck or in a yard without trees. The metal stand will easily support 600lbs and measures 8ft x 8ft x 8ft.

It's really as simple as that. We had the idea, came up with the design, built several samples, tested them in every way imaginable and now it's ready to become a revolutionizing product. This is where we need some help. It has been an expensive road getting to this point and as you can imagine there are significant costs in taking the next step from prototype to reality.

We're confident demand will be high for the TreePod and hope that some early supporters will help us raise the capital needed take it to production. The team behind the TreePod has over 50 years of collective experience making outdoor gear such as tents, packs, hammocks, slacklines and  shoes. We know the industry and we're ready to add a new category to our repertoire. Your contribution is greatly appreciated and will help to take the TreePod from an idea to a reality!

Risks and challenges

The great news is that most of the expense and prep work are already behind us! The TreePod has been in the works for well over a year and many of the hurdles that cause a new product to be delayed or never get to market have been overcome. The TreePod is very close to being production-ready and our goal is to make it available in time for spring!

Assuming we meet our funding goal, the next step is to purchase molds and raw materials. Our aim is to have this complete and begin actual production of the first run in January/February which would mean getting it in the hands of our loyal TreePod fans in April. Delays can certainly happen if any obstacles pop up, however, our experienced team is well-equipped to handle it quickly and make decisions to keep the project on track. We'll be providing updates on our progress as we go to keep our supporters informed.
