Dome tents, more sturdy and can be used for real camping
Dome tents are the most popular type of tent among outdoor activity enthusiasts. It’s called a dome because it looks like a dome.

Its function is to protect the tent when it rains. Today, there are many dome tents that are designed for children with bright colors and funny animated images.

Teepee tent can be used to decorate a child’s room
Initially, the teepee tent is a type of tent that is often used by Native Americans for camping. No wonder this tent is also known by the name of Indian tents. A characteristic feature of the teepee tent is that it has a cone shape with three closed sides and one open front side. Over time, the teepee tent is not only used for camping but also used as decoration in the corner of the house or corner of the child’s room. The disadvantage of this tent is that a long wooden pole is needed and cannot be folded like a tent pole. In other words, the teepee tent is not compact enough when stored.
