As many of the other reviewers noted the one I received was NOT nearly as cute as the one pictured. They either need to change the photo or get the right item in stock. That said, my grandkids love playing with it. They have used it as a house, a diner, a fort, etc. -- wherever their imaginations led them. We only put it up outside on nice days when they are visiting. It has flown away in even minor winds. It is a nylon type fabric which sort of makes it a big kite. I have put it up in the house but it does take up a good bit of space. Would be great in a large children's playroom. At the peak it is 7' tall. The "walls" are about 4' square and the "porch" adds a few more feet. The poles are a little flimsy .. we duct taped the seams to hold better. It is not too bad overall. The kids have gotten hours of creative play out of it which is what I wanted. It is a relatively inexpensive alternative to putting up a permanent and very expensive playhouse outdoors. Plus it is actually a good bit bigger than many of those heavy plastic ones. As nice as those are this is a little better for some of the older children because of the height. I just need to find a better way to secure it to the ground.
I lost a bolt to my plane that kept the steering wheel and propellor attached. I emailed the company and they sent the replacement bolt free of charge!! I was so excited to put my plane back together to let the children enjoy again. Thanks Lifetime :)
We bought this after we noticed our kids playing on these at area playgrounds. Since we can't always go to the park this seemed like a good investment in getting our kids to go outside and play. Well it was, my kids are always playing on it, our under it. Their favorite thing to do it, is to get a bunch of huge blankets and cover it and turn it into a fort.
