Got this as a Xmas gift as it was on the list of Top Gifts for Christmas 2014. Was talked into letting the kids open one present before Christmas. They love it! They've made different designs and covered them with throws, blankets and spent hours playing with their fort, castle or cave.
Thinking of getting another one as an add-on so they can build bigger forts. Definitely good for older kids. My kids didn't need me to help them put this together. Make sure they get pressed into the joints properly, otherwise your fort may collapse on you. Definitely recommend it.
