Anyone have any favourites? Ability to hold itself up without sagging and something that doesn't take a PhD to fold would be an advantage.

sorry ours has the former quality but I'm afraid you do need a phd to fold it down

Thanks anyway Twiglett - I was going to buy a nice pinky stripy one from Gap but when it took two sales people 20 minutes and they still couldn't fold it, I decided to leave it!
Anyone else?

I just bourght a play tent for a friend's child - 3rd birthday from Sainsbury's. Its a pop up tent with a window and a couple of flaps/doors. It was an instant hit and everyone wanted to play with it. I suppose about 4 toddlers fitted in it although they might have been sitting on top of each other! It cost £14 I think. Not bad I thought- you dont have to assemble it and I presumed that it was just like one of those play tunnels that you just have to squash to flatten when you need to put it away. Hope this helps.

A friend of mine swears by the ikea tent, it has done her four kids and at the time cost her 9pounds, I think its on sale at times for 5pounds. I have the tent set with tunnel from elc and takes me ages to fold it all down but I suppose the kids love it.

I have the fortress in blue from adsa with tunnel that also attaches £15. They also do a gingerbread cottage in pink. Very impressed

my only advice is avoid the elc pop up ones they are a nightmare to pack away. so much so that in a very bad pmt strop last year i threw it in the dustbin because i couldn't fold it up to get it back into the bag!

DD had the Asda gingerbread house for her birthday. It's really easy to put up and down.
