My three kids 7, 2 and 1. Love this tent! I build it in my house, out in our backyard, and have also taken it camping! Its still holding up to the abuse and constant use. I would highly recommend this product for hours of fun!
I should probably buy another set as they are getting bigger (now 6 & 4). I've had this for almost 2yrs and haven't lost a piece (shhh 😉). I bought a wicker basket to store them and they still love playing with it! **highly recommend getting a box to put these in!!! Or it will be a mess to keep up with and all over the place**
We got this for our grandson who was 8 y/o at the time. He's now 10 and I think he's maybe played in it 4-5 times because he has been unable to put the pieces together by himself. Even now, he still needs help. Soon he won't care to play fort anymore. So, my opinion is it's a lot of fun but be prepared to construct a fort for your young one. And take it apart and put it away.
I purchased this for my 6 year old. Setup (very easy): Santa set it up started around 3:30 and by 4:00 everything was up and ready. Instructions were on point. Design: It looks just like the picture. I was concerned that it would be too small for my daughter - I am 5ft 7 and i can stand up in the house. It is too cute. (*There is no material for the bottom of the house it is completely open) Sturdy: Product is made of the same material (but i believe a little lighter) than that for tents. Cloth fastens to velcro to hold each of the plastic frames for the roof, floor, door, awning, and two front poles. If your kids don't tug on the thing it should last for a few years however; with much wear and tear; in and out of the door---you may find that it could wear fast and the velcro may need to be restitched. Overall My daughter has been in and out of the thing every day from Christmas until yesterday when we had to take it down---due to the fact that it was taking up too much living room space;') It will be well suited for a backyard but the material is not weatherized---so maybe a covered backyard will work fine. I purchased her a cash register and she added our existing chairs and a few other household items. It is just like a little cafe.... it will bring lots of fun for many many days to come!
