Introducing Fortsy. Inflate your imagination!

Long gone are the struggles of blanket fort maintenance and clean up. Fortsy products are designed with even the most adventurous kids in mind. They are easy to inflate, machine washable, and can be used indoor and out!

Fortsy forts are also extremely durable - so much so that we are backing them up with a 3 year warranty!

 The possibilities are endless.

There is no wrong way to play with a Fortsy. It is amazing to see little minds find more and more imaginative ways to play.

Check out some of our "BETA TESTERS." They love it!

Base:

Fortsy "Bases" are imagination’s starting point. Roughly 5 ft. wide, 5 ft. deep, and 3 ft. high, Fortsy Bases can easily fit 4-5 kids inside. Each Base includes three zipper-less doors, a mesh window, and a zippered top.

Tower/Tunnel:

Fortsy Towers are designed to complement each of our Fortsy Base themes. Fortsy Towers stand approximately 5ft high, and are 3 ft wide and 3 ft deep. Each Tower includes two zipper-less doors, two mesh windows, and zippered top and bottom panels, allowing Fortsy towers to turn into awesome tunnels as well, connecting two Fortsy bases together, or providing a really cool entrance into a single base.

Inflate in less than 1 minute.

Fortsy forts are super easy to set up and take down. Each fort includes a hand pump and packs into a small carry bag.

There’s nothing like a day spent slaying dragons or rescuing damsels in distress or enjoying crumpets in the castle courtyard. Knights, kings, queens, and princesses alike can let their imaginations soar in their own personal castle sanctuary.

Tea time already? Invite the whole gang! Fluffy bear, dolly, and Syd the elephant, cause it's time to play house and have a tea party.

In order to make our forts as colorful and vibrant as possible, for each design we make we will be investing in a set of large roller dies that will allow us to roller print our patterns. Due to the high cost of making these dies, and also due to the minimum order quantities we’ve been able to negotiate with our factory, we need your help to add each additional design to our project.

This is a call to all the imagination facilitators. 

Something happens when a child steps out of reality and into the world of imagination. We call it magic. Every day, in the minds of our children, the universe is saved at least 7 times. That means 7 times a day you will clean the living room, put the toys away, and reset the couch your mother-in-law bought you on your wedding day. You do this because you understand that every princess space traveler needs their rocket ship, every jungle explorer needs a hideout, and every little universe saver needs to know that their imagination is important.

Risks and challenges

This is Fortsy’s first Kickstarter project, but not our first rodeo. We've got some fantastic experience in manufacturing goods and fulfill lots of orders in a relatively short amount of time. As is expected with any new venture, issues do arise but we always find ways to keep our customers happy with their purchase and proud to support our company.

Our biggest risk with this project is running into holiday crunch time. The tooling of the printing molds takes time, and some complications can arise. We also can’t control unforeseen manufacturing delays or courier delivery schedules. But we have already made the necessary preparations to ensure production as soon as we are funded, to make sure our materials are above our quality control expectations, and to be ready to ship as soon as the the product comes off the production line.
