Actually use this at school as part of outdoor provision - reading tent! Due to space issues everything has to be set up and put away every day. Once you get the hang of it - is up in seconds - slightly harder to put away but improving with practise! It is roomy and sturdy and would imagine it would be great on the beach!
As phonics flashcards they are fine! I ordered them because they had Superhero in the title and a picture of a superhero on the front mistakenly thinking they would be Superhero themed to fit in nicely with my Superhero topic. But the title and the picture on the front is where the Superhero theme starts and ends!! So bit disappointed from that aspect. More use as a support at home.
