I agree with the other posters. If it's for you, you may want to pass as it is very plastic looking. But my DD9 got it for her birthday and it's one of her favorite accessories. They love the records, the crank and the songs it plays. It's very sturdy and has held up to a lot of play. I would buy it again.
Wow, we have had the tent since July 2010. It falls apart constantly. The canvas is nice and thick and the floor and steps are great, but the frame the tent is on does not stay together. Not only do the poles come out from the floor, but where the top of the frame connects to the tops of the poles also comes unconnected constantly. Very frustrating for me and the kids. I would put this in the same class as Kaya's teepee, cool to look at but don't try to actually use it.
