Bought this tent for Xmas 2012, doing my xmas shopping early. This tent is beautiful. Of course, for the money - it should be. It will be tall enough for my kids to stand up in it. Also, I really like how well it is made. The only thing I don't like is that how it folds. It comes nicely folded in a small, round, green bag. It is super easy to put it up but folding it back in that tiny bag is a challenge (since there are no instructions included). After I tried for approx 45 min to fold this tent back to its original bag, I decided to call HABA USA. People there are trying to be helpful but they did not know either. I guess they did the best they could and gave me link to a youtube video that explained how to fold a similar tent made by HABA. The only problem was that the tent in the video was much smaller, therefore, I could not use the same technique. I just simply did not want to bend the bottom wire ring and end up with an oval base later on. As I kept trying to fold it over and over I could already see that the bottom was looking less and less like a circle. After approx 75 min I figured out how to fold this big tent back in the original bag and hide it in our storage till Xmas. Now I'm a little concerned whether the tent will be in a decent shape once I take it out on Xmas day or whether it will look like an oval. I think it would really help if HABA would include folding instructions in each box.
Just a follow up.. today, which is approx 10 months later I decided to put the tent away... prior to that (actually right after I called HABA USA), I also tried to email HABA as well, asking for folding instructions... haven't heard form them... pretty sad, considering how much I spent on their play tent. So today (October, 2013), I decided to put the tent away, just for a few months. It took me almost an hour to figure out how to fold it in that green bag. Not folding the tent was not an option since the 2 circles are rather big. The worst part is that one of the circles (the base) snapped. Contacting HABA would be probably useless, given that they did not respond to me the first time I sent them an email. Oh well.... .
