Only good for a very young child.

The canvas is sturdy but lightweight, and it folds down nicely.

I was hesitant to purchase this teepee given the reviews about the smell, but I decided to take a chance even though my son and I are sensitive to chemical odors. When it arrived, I was thrilled to see how well made and attractive it is, but it definitely smelled. My poor son would run into the teepee, last about 10 seconds, then crawl out complaining about the headache the odor was giving him.

Fortunately I ignored the spot-clean instructions and followed the advice of others here. I washed the teepee in cold water (to keep it from shrinking) with unscented, hypoallergenic detergent. Then I dried it on low. Voila! The smell was completely gone without the use of scented detergents or fabric sheets. My two children now live in this teepee! I probably washed off the fire retardant, but we couldn't tolerate that fishy chemical smell.

Other points -- As mentioned in previous reviews, the teepee is much shorter than you might expect. I'm 5' 3", and when it's erected the top of the canvas is at my shoulder. My 5-year-old son can just stand in it, but he probably won't be able to for long. Not that it matters to us. They still love the teepee and I imagine they'll cram into it for years to come.

Also, this teepee breaks down beautifully for storage. I wasn't sure where I'd keep the 6" poles, but they break down easily into 3" sections. The canvas is sturdy but lightweight, and it folds down nicely. Storage won't be a problem.

All in all, we're happy with this purchase!

My kids LOVE this teepee. I ordered it for my son's birthday and both him and his older brother love it (3 and 7 years old). They read, play and sleep in it. It's easy to move around, and it looks great(very neutral blends with any room's decor very well). We have had it for just about 3 weeks and we have been using it inside, so far so good. This toy sparks my kid's imagination, it's very sturdy and I highly recommend it.

We bought this Tee Pee for my 6 year old son for Christmas. He was so excited, its such a cool sturdy teepee! I would suggest it better for out doors as it has a strange fishy odor on the canvas. I have fabrezed it over & over and as its water resistant the liquid beads and does not soak in. I am think its treated with a fish oil or something! We are keeping it outdoors because the ssmell is so strong you can smell it from outside my sons room!

My kids enjoy the Teepee and it is constructed well. It rolls up easy and stays together when rolled up, thus it can be taken down and put back up again in a minute or two. The fishy odor is almost unbearable, you could smell the TeepPee from 20 feet away. Tried putting it in the dryer with fabric sheets and let it run for an hour or two, didn't help. Resorted to washing it in hot water with laundry detergent, then drying with fabric softener. The TeePee held up perfectly to being washed. Fishy Odor is no longer a problem. 6' high sounds tall however that measurement must be to the highest point of the sticks that extend out the top of the Teepee. The height of the canvas portion is considerably shorter Overall good purchase

the construction itself was ok and simple but the size is very misleading. 6 foot is length of the poles and make it a liitle over 4 feet inside and only about 3 feet across at the base

We really like the teepee. It's not huge but big enough for my giant 8-year-old to sit in and 3-year-old to stretch out in. It's not huge, but I wouldn't want a big one for my house. It easily folds up to stash in a corner when not in use.

I bought this teepee for my granddaughter's 5th birthday. She and my other granddaughter (who is also 5 years old) love the teepee. I am happy that it is versatile enough for outdoor play - thanks for a great product!

I purchased this teepee in conjunction with the other parents at our preschool. We've just moved to a new location and the Nursery "garden" was still very bare, leaving our tots missing their old playground with its little shed and mature plantings.

I was very concerned about the stench described by others. I'm pretty sensitive to chemical odors and often the first to comment on a weird smell. I opened the package when it arrived and assembled the teepee at my home so it could air out before being presented to the children at school. Happily, there was only a mild odor on our teepee. (Perhaps it depends upon time between manufacturing and receipt by the customer?) I still left it to air out in my mudroom over the weekend, but my fears for the health/comfort of our little children were allayed.

Construction of the teepee was simple and easily accomplished by a wimpy middle aged mom. I thought at first that I needed tape to secure the joints in the poles (as another reviewer suggested), but it turns out I just hadn't aligned some less-than-obvious slots and pegs inside the connection joint. When aligned correctly, the joints were VERY snug, even without tape.

This teepee can be transported in a compact hatchback with three kids in child safety seats, though it did need to ride from dashboard over seatbacks (between headrests & kids' shoulders) and nearly touched the glass of the rear window. Normal parents with SUVs and minivans could easily transport this shelter anywhere they wish.

Our class teacher stores the teepee indoors and just carries it out every day for the children to use. We expect it to last a long time being cared for in this way.
