US Patent:

May 12, 1998
Appl. No.:
Richard Markuten - Darlington PA
International Classification:
E04B 132
US Classification:
52 812
A child's play shelter having a skeletal structure composed of a plurality of arcuate beams or bowed frames connected at the top forming a rotatable ring. Arcuate combination horizontal and vertical T-bar and rib sections are interconnected as water tight snap-on elements which produce cavities for interstitial elements. A crawl-in-entrance-way is disposed in a side of the igloo with a mesh flap to close the entrance. The snap-on T-bar and rib sections are proportionately cut to form the shape of an igloo when assembled. The horizontal arcuate elements are fastened to the beams of the shelter in a staggered fashion with respect to the vertical arcuate elements to produce a structure having insertable and pop-out windows. A movable or rotating top is attached to the rotatable ring providing multiple or surrounding views above the igloo. A water drain is selectively pre-cut in each rib for draining water to the base of and away from the igloo.
