Sorry, Christmas Orders are closed!

CHRISTMAS ORDERS: Bellamy Teepees is a small, family operated business. Because we sew and handpaint each teepee, we can only take a limited amount of Christmas Orders. Sorry, Christmas orders are now closed.



ABOUT OUR TEEPEES


No Batteries!   No Electronics!

Only requires imagination for
creative, wholesome fun!

Bellamy 'Unique Design' Children's Teepees are made of unbleached muslin fabric and pine lumber. Our Teepees are hand painted with Native American designs and symbols. The spacious interior allows plenty of room for several children and their toys.

The Teepee is completely assembled and can be set up in less than a minute (honestly) and can be easily collapsed, like an umbrella, for convenient storage.

The sticks are totally encased in fabric except at the top and won't scratch floors, making the Teepee ideal for both indoor and outdoor play.

Parents, Grandparents, Aunts & Uncles...

The Teepee is a great 'group' gift. Each child will have their own panel with their name and a Native American scene created especially for them.

MADE IN THE USA: Our teepees are machine sewn by our expreienced seamstresses and handpainted by Amy, the teepee artist, in our workshop in Lafayette, NJ.


OUR PRODUCT...


Bellamy 'Unique Designs' Children's Teepees are made from natural materials: cotton fabric and wood. They are painted with non-toxic acrylic paint.

The Teepee is not meant to be a tent or rain shelter, but rather a fun play house for children from the ages of 2 through about 10 years old. It has a flap style door which may be rolled up and tied out of the way.

The actual teepee is for children, of course, but the design for the simple set up and easy storage of the teepee was created with parents in mind.


Amy developed this unique pattern over 28 years ago. The basic idea came from her childhood memories of creating a play fort out of the dining room table and tons of blankets. It was wonderful fun for the kids, but a nightmare for her mother...


WHAT AGE CHILDREN ENJOY OUR TEEPEES?


There are children as young as a year old who have fun crawling into the Teepees that their parents or grandparents have ordered for them. Children up to age 10 enjoy the teepees. Kids who over 10 may be too old for a teepee, but it kind of depends on the individual child.


NATIVE AMERICAN SYMBOLS and DESIGNS...


Years of research has provided us with a wide assortment of Native American symbols and designs. Each teepee comes with a Native American Design Guide - an 11 page set of hand-drawn symbols so the child can learn the meaning of each individual painting on the teepee.

Every teepee is custom painted for the age and gender of the child or children. We paint the teepees for the younger children with symbols that they can recognize: fish, deer, horses, turtles and lot of others. For older children who are reading or close to it, we paint a panel of symbols that they can match to the flyer to learn what the symbols represent, such as seasons, weather, days & nights, protection, and more.

Natural Colors & Earthtones
Most of our teepees are painted using natural colors and earthtones, colors that Native Americans may have mixed using berries, plants and crushed rocks & minerals. These colors include shades of green, blue, and brown, sunny yellow, bright red, orange, gray, white.

Indian Princess Teepee
Not to seem gender-biased, but we have found that little girls like rainbows, flowers, and butterflies (while the boys like crawly things like lizards and snakes). Our 'Indian Princess' Teepee is painted with pastel colors of pinks, purples, aqua and has lots of pretty designs that little girls love!

Enhance the Experience...

Set up the Teepee indoors or outdoors on a large blanket. Encourage the children to gather materials to make a Native American camp: a pretend campfire, cooking pots, utensils, bedding, etc. Serve them 'meal' of trail mix made up of small snack foods: pretzels, tiny crackers, raisins, mini-marshmallows and whatever else you have on-hand.


Enhance the Gift...

Shop your local stores for a fake fur Bear Rug or blanket with Native American Designs. Add a feather headband, Native American vest or outfit, or tom-tom. Give your special child a book of Native American stories.
