When Biggie was little I visited several friends who had really cool pop-up tents for their kids to play with. Of course I wanted one too. I bought this one from "Ryan's Room" and hauled it back to Japan in my luggage.
The first time we put it up we were so disappointed. It's hard to set up - you need the instructions everytime - and it's very very stressful when you have a toddler "helping".
Once it's assembled it's very flimsy. I think one of the poles bent on the first day. Nevertheless we still have it so I set it up for Little Guy last week.
I have had to tape all of the stupid broken poles together and reinforce some with wooden chopsticks but it is standing.
I thought it was so cute when Little Guy dozed off in it.
Now what I really want is a teepee. I saw one in an Ikea pamphlet so have been entertaining the idea of making one for the past few months. Lots of people on Etsy make them. What do you think?
