The ornate and beautiful work put into 19th century gypsy wagons can be quite outstanding.  Not only did they allow one to travel in style, but made for quite a quaint and elaborate home.  Now your child can have their own vardo caravan in a simplified play-set form that the whole family can enjoy building and using.

With a foot print of just 6 feet by 12 feet, the Gypsy Wagon play-set will fit in most backyards.  Two doors allow for easy come and go access, and two large shed windows provide plenty of natural light.  Angled walls and an arched roof helps this play-set replicate the real thing, without making it too complicated.  Download your copy today!
