The Sensory Dark Den Pop Up Tent (a.k.a Sensory Blackout Tent) is a popular sturdy tent used to create a darkened sensory space. Often set up in school classrooms or homes, they give the opportunity for children to hide away when overwhelmed.
Some time in the Dark Den Tent can help children calm and self-regulate. Add in your favorite sensory items such as lighting, noise reduction earmuffs, fidgets and calming music.
This perfect little space will make a practical and sturdy addition to any sensory room, classroom, therapeutic space or home. Well suited to children who have sensory processing disorder, auditory processing disorder or are on the spectrum – as it offers a calming space with reduced sensory stimulation.
We love that the Dark Den can be made completely dark or lightened to suit (by opening the windows).
We also love that the fabric “breathes” and it doesn’t get too hot inside.
Why it is perfect for kids, especially those with sensory sensitivities
This Dark Den tent provides a personal and private sanctuary for overstimulated children to retreat. It gives children with sensory sensitivities or those with sensory processing disorder a place to escape bright lights, loud noise, siblings, and busy days. A child can shut out sensory overload and enjoy playing, reading, or just quiet time alone that they need to settle down.
The tent is 100 cm squared and has side flaps for observation, light adjustment and imaginative play.
Comes with storage bag that can be used for easy traveling.

I am soo happy with this item, it has really helped my son find a hiding place as he is sensitive to bright light. Awesome!!
I was looking for something like this for some time and now i found it. Great quality and great customer experience. 5 star!!
This arrived just in time for the beginning of level four lockdown. It’s the perfect size for my 13 year old (would be perfect size for any size child or teen I think). She has set it up in her room already with blankets and pillows etc. We plan to take it on holiday (after lockdown) so she has somewhere she can escape in the small cabins/motel rooms we will stay in.
Even the cats like it - found two of them asleep in there yesterday shortly after it was set up. My daughter is more than happy to share it with the cats .
