The Wild Things’ Forts Contest!

Remember what it felt like to build a fort? To hide away in a maze of chairs and pillows and blankets? Remember perching on couches and bunkbeds, overlooking an imaginary empire? It felt amazing to strip those objects of their benign, practical purposes. We were contradicting the domestic order of mom and dad to create something wild and mysterious– a place all our own, with moats and towers, jungles and vines, robots and dinosaurs. This guy knows what I’m talking about:

Let’s recapture the magic. We Love You So and our good friends over at . Use any materials you can get your hands on, because the only limits are inside your own imagination.

The winner will receive a special edition Xbox 360 decked out Where the Wild Things Are style– plus a magnificent bus shelter-sized Where the Wild Things Are poster not available in stores! More details on the prizes to come– but the competition will be fierce, so get your entires in quick! The deadline for submissions is Monday, October 12th. Let the wild rumpus start!

Here are a couple rad examples to get your creative juices flowing: ethereal fortresses from lovely Swedish artist Ida Lehtonen, and the enormous yet cozy fort at Space 1520’s WTWTA pop-up shop.
