Easy to put up, easy to take down. Our grandson out-grew it but we've passed the tent on. Kids LOVE this make believe tent.

We purchased this tent because our 3 year old twin grandchildren were coming for a visit for several days, as soon as they saw the tent, it was an instant hit! On the outside poles we hung small inexpensive Christmas lights which made the tent most festive. Our grandchildren spent an enormous amount of time in their castle and even preferred their tent over sleeping in a bed at night. I would recommend this item for any parent or grandparent who wants an inexpensive way to entertain their children or grandchildren.

We bought this for my 2 year old son and I have to say I love everything about it except that it is designed poorly for indoor use. It should have 2 more poles to support the bottom (which would not be an issue if pegs are used while outdoors) but it lacks stability/tension without being pegged (which is obviously not an option when being used indoors). Despite that, it's still a good buy in my opinion.

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. a little flimsier tha expected, but decent eough for the price
- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? The outside zipper bag was a little damaged (2 small holes) but mostly due to poor packaging/shipping.
Loved the size of the tent, and it was very sturdy.....however not sturdy enough to withstand my very active 1 1/2 year old....great for kids 3 and up, who will know not to jump on top of the tent. Still very good quality though.

Both of my granddauhters (4 & 5 Years old) are in love with this tent....it is a fort, it is a palace, it is a store....whatever their current play is, this just seems to fit the need. It is very quick to assemble....we are so pleased. I am estatic as it was almost $20.00 less expensive on Overstock.com than it was at any other site or retailer! That was my decision maker to buy two, instead of just the one as was my original intent.
- How accurate was the sizing? exact

So so very cute and attractive to children! It is fairly well made, and doesn't take a lot of time to assemble. However one of the clips was broken when we received it. If it had been in perfect condition when I received it, I would have given it 5 stars.
This tent I bought for a friend's child who just loves tents. The size of the tent is good. It could fit 3-4 4 year olds with ease. However, as others have noted it is better as an outside tent since it does not stay up well in the house. It is also harder to take up and down with ease. I have three other tents that stay up and are easy to take up and down. I was disappointed with this feature and I would not purchase a tent like this again. However, the price was very good.
I purchased this as a gift for my son. We put it together this past summer thinking it would be fun since my son is always trying to build a fort. I was disappointed to find that it would not even stand up. Now I used to be a carpenter so this is not an assembly issue. After putting some thought into how to get the entrance to stay up I finally found away to rig it without interfering with its construction. It lasted 15 min at the most, it fell with the kids inside & trying to push the fabric off of them one of the plastic pieces that the poles go in snapped at the very top. So it never got used and is sitting in the garage since my son got it for xmas last year but we didn't open it til summer. This product will not stand up to any kid. My son was not rough housing. 2 kids were sitting in the tent having a picnic with play food. buyer beware...do not waste your $$$.
We purchased this for our grand child. It was very easy to put together, came with a storage pouch so it could be put away easily and it was well received by all the children who played in it. Good quality; little windows that rolls up and since some of the children were girls, we called it a circus tent instead of a Knights Tower. I could be used indoors as well as outdoors.
OVERALL THIS TENT IS GREAT. NOT TO DIFFICULT TO SETUP. JUST TAKES PATIENCE. THE COLORS ARE BRIGHT AND PLAYFUL.THE ONE THING THAT I WOULD HAVE PERFERED WAS, THAT THE TENT WOULD SET UP INSIDE THE HOUSE BUT IT WOULD NOT. IT'S MADE TO BE SETUP OUTSIDE. IT FALLS OVER INSIDE BECAUSE THERES NOTHING TO HOLD IT DOWN. DOES'NT SET FLUSH TO THE FLOOR. NEXT TIME I'LL BE MORE AWARE THAT NOT ALL TENTS ARE MADE TO BE SET IN OR OUTSIDE.
My 3-year-old granddaughter could scarcely wait for me to set up the tent, and her imagination was already running ahead to when she would share 'the castle' with her young cousins! She immediately climbed in and began opening and closing the doors, bringing in her toys to fill her 'royal throne-room' and had instant fun playing in the spacious tent. Later, when it began to rain, I was impressed the tent stayed quite dry inside ... and was sufficiently light-weight and easy to 'unplug' from the ground to carry inside the garage. Now when she arrives at my house to play, she races to see if the flag is flying over her castle. My only regret is that I did not buy two of these affordable tents, but I'm am certain all my little grands will let their imaginations soar as they crawl through this wonderful castle-tent!
My daughters were so excited to get this tent. It came really quickly from overstock. It went up without any problems. The first time we set it up outside and used the stakes to keep it in place. That worked great and it stayed in place with many children going in and out. Then I tried to set it up inside. The directions say there is velcro on the tent to hold it in place on carpet. However my tent does not have the velcro. I called the company to find out what to do and am still waiting for a call back from them. I hope that they can help me out since the tent is great and would be a good cold/rainy day activity if it would stay in place.
