Ikea kids circus tent. Anyone have one?

http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/10206883/

We are thinking of getting it for our son's bday in June but we don't have an Ikea local to us so we can't go look at it. Anyone have one? How has it held up? How roomy is it? Thanks

Don't have their circus tent but we have a red tent from there for Steven and it's held up the past three years.

I can puck it up for you here

We have something similar from Belgium and DD (and our cats!) plays with it every day. She calls it her "party house," and all the kids at her birthday party last year (age 1-6) loved it.

I was going to be asking in the KAL if anyone has a local Ikea and could ship it to me . What is the frame made of do you think? I couldn't find the info online.

Most likely metal and plastic. Our red tent is the metal tubing.

They are out of stock at my place until end of the month. But I can get it for you when they cone into stock. Wonder the size it is and weight for shipping.

I saw it when we were there last month. It's really cute & looks pretty sturdy. It looks like it could hold about 3 little kids, maybe 4? The only reason I didn't get it is that I couldn't find a price tag or an employee. I found out how inexpensive when I looked it up when we got home. IKEA is about 40 min away on the Jersey Turnpike or I'd have gone bank & bought it already. We did buy 5 circus themed puppets there (for our Learning Tower's puppet theater) for $1.99 each! They'd be cute with the tent.

The frame is made of thick plastic rods. I was checking it out thoroughly as I was debating on buying or not LOL. I'm having surgery soon & not well or I'd offer to drive up to get one to send to you.

We have this: the kids love it and it's held up nicely.

The frame is made of plastic, and it comes as a very flat, but very large round circle ( in the packaging). I guess it could be shipped in a large, thin box.
