Crafty Pods Folding Play Area

Discover the benefits of a folding play area with Crafty Pods. Create a safe space for play, naptime or messy play with a Crafty Pod that is easily collapsible for easy tidying and travel. Whether they’re heading off to their grandparents, or you’re taking them on holiday and want the familiar comforts of home, taking a Crafty Pod can create a comforting space for your children when they’re away from home. The fold-down directions are easy to follow, whilst the pod takes up little space so it fits easily into your bag.

Fold-down Pod Directions

Folding down your Pod couldn’t be easier, and the included storage bag makes travelling or storing your Pod a simple affair. Follow the directions below to easily pack your pod away until you need it next.

  1. Firstly, fold the seams of each section against each other, gathering a small amount of the base sheet into each section as you go.
  2. Once you have folded all of the seams together, hold the Pod flat in front of you, holding two diagonal corners (one top and one bottom corner).
  3. Twist each corner, one towards yourself and one away, until you form tight circles. You may need to adjust the size of your circles as you go depending on the size of your storage bag.
  4. Now you have it packed into a tight circle you should flatten it as much as possible to ensure it fits into your storage bag.
  5. Now your circle is ready to place into your storage bag and zip up until you need it next. It’s as easy as that!
