Great Outdoors Tent Item# W0914 $75 My American Girl® dolls can have a sleepover under the stars with this set! It features: A berry nylon camp tent roomy enough for two 18" dolls A zippered front entrance, side windows that roll up, and a screened back for fresh air A pretend lantern that really lights up for nighttime campouts A faux travel mug with a removable lid for refreshments on the go A make-believe snack box to share with a friend W: 23" x H: 14½" x D: 18"
This tent says it's nylon, but it's thick nylon and very much like a real tent! The front door has a zipper down the middle and velcro at the bottom. It can stay open with elastic loops. The side window screens roll up and can stay with elastic loops (much like a real tent.) There are no rain flaps over the windows. The back window screen does not open in any way.
The little accessories are cute. The lantern comes with button batteries and really lights up. The thermos opens (the cup comes off only) and the granola is just pretend (DO NOT EAT!)
This comes flat in a box, but the only assembly you need to do is snap the top of each of the four side poles into a cross piece that is sewn to the center of the tent ceiling. The poles are thick and much sturdier than AG tents of the past.
This is very well made and very roomy. Two dolls can lay comfortably inside -- three if they want to get cozy. You could get four dolls sitting in it too, if necessary.
Very nice set. Should have come with a camp fire too. Grade A
side window with screen rolled up
side window with screen velcroed down
back window screen is completely tent sized
accessories for IDing
Everyone loves the new Tent:
ETA: another photo because someone wanted to see how the color compared with the Camp Chair from 2009:

We have the tent. It is wonderful. My 10-year-old daughter loves it. She received it for her birthday and also has the camping outfits and the dog camping stuff. I don't have pics because I am a photo dummy. She has loved playing with it. It is sturdy and I can't remember if she was able to set it up? I think I may have helped her with the poles. We don't have the sleeping bags as I said we would make one.

I have this tent- and yes, while the instructions are very clear, it can be difficult to assemble. There must be some slight variations in the pole length, but I struggled to snap some of the poles into places. However, it seems others had a much easier time. I'm guessing it's luck of the draw.
