"My sons love the tent! The oldest is 2 1/2 and the youngest just turned 1. I don't think it's sturdy enough for 3+ because as soon as my friends 4 yr old son and 5yr old daughter began to play in the tent, 2 of the sides that kept it standing broke. If your child is VERY active then this might happen too.But if they are mellow like mine then it has a chance to last. I feel that the quality is okay and that it could have been better since it is made for children's age that are very active."
