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!
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.Read more ›
