Why did you choose this product?
I purchased this product knowing that some adult supervision would be necessary. I have built several structures with kids from 3 to 6 years of age. Its awesome! The kids love it. Yes, some of the sticks come loose, and yes a heavy blanket will cause it to topple, but I knew all of that. I am considering purchasing a second set so we can expand our creations!...

The joint connectors wearing out pretty quick. Would suggest picking out one frame style and super glueing it together. My Grandson does play with though or else it wouldn't be wearing out. Over-all it was worth what we payed for it.Read More
It's like tinker toys, but as a tent!Read More

My 5 year old loves building forts with this! We build one, tear it down and do it again. Great gift for kids!Read More
I bought these for my son with his Christmas money. It took a few days for them to ship and come in. Got here relatively fast after shipping. I took it out immediately after it arrived. My son was very excited. The first thing I noticed upon unpacking, the bars are made of a flimsy type of plastic. I wasn't to worried as long as they'd hold up. I put it all together and tossed the blanket over the fort. The plastic bars came out of the connecters. It didn't matter how hard I pushed the bars in or switching the connecters around, they always popped out. I then decided to let my son play with it without the blanket. The bars would pop off when he'd crawl into the fort. It didn't hold up to the slightest of movements. The ends of the plastic bars also started to chip away after popping out 2-3 times. The directions were easy to handle. The packaging was well. However the product itself cannot hold up to movement hitting the bars which isn't ideal for a children's playtime toy.Read More
The only thing I do not like is that the poles are a bit too bendy. If they were a little stronger this would be a 10 but I give it an 8. My daughter loves forts so we got her two boxes and she builds big forts with her dad and we cover it with flat sheets from our king bed. With two sets we can build it tall enough she can stand in it and lay down with her friend and have a sleep over in it. We have used them many times and it is holding up well. We bought 6 boxes so we could give 2 boxes to each of our families kids. The kids come over and love to play with ours so we got them all fort set for this Christmas.Read More
It is hard to build with. My Grandchildren needed help, the oldest is 6. The rods do not stay in the connectors and they are difficult to insert. If you get it build, it falls down with little contact. Would not recommend.Read More
This was purchased for my 6 year old grandson. He loves it! The first thing he built was a dome fort. He loves the fact it is HIS space and he can sit in his fort and read or play games on his ipod touch. This is perfect for any child who loves to create their own space.Read More
This was a Christmas gift for my 7 year old daughter....we immediately got it out of the box and put it together. She fits inside it well, though I don't when I try to play with her. The only bad part has been that it was kind of hard for her to put it together. That may change as we use it more and the pieces get broken in. Great toy!Read More
