HAZARDOUS PRODUCT - STABBING DANGER
I sent this to my friend for her little one's birthday and during the second use, as he was climbing out the door, a wire popped out of the mesh ribbing. Luckily it didn't stab or cut him, but easily could have. And after only 2 uses! This product should be recalled.

My son loves this tent, but the sewing construction is terrible! Some of the seems look like they're already tearing and we've only had it for a week. It honestly looked like that when we opened it from the box. I noticed there are parts where they have sewed pieces that aren't supposed to be attached and it here's where it missed spots along the edges.
It's super cute and a great idea for a ball pit, but the construction of the tent is quite poor. I'll most likely be exchanging for something else.

Nice popup design
After reading other reviews I realize I must have gotten lucky with the mesh pit I received as it is sewn fine and stands up straight. My son has only briefly played with this tent but it is easy to pop open and it is easy to condense to a smaller size to stick somewhere else when not in use. The amount of balls it arrived with was decent but I didn't really buy it for that. I've had other inflatable ball pits that broke very easily so I prefer this mesh design because in my house with cats and a sensory seeking toddler it is more durable. I've climbed into the pit myself so I'd say the size is adequate without being too big and bulky.

I would rate this item as "okay".
*Pros: fun toy, will hopefully be something my child can play with for years to come, collapsable, comes with balls, see-through sides and open top gives it a cool concept.
*Cons: pretty flimsy; I don't think it will take much to rip or damage this toy. I think a rowdy child could easily damage this. I don't think it's really worth the price because of the flimsy material. For my small child, it's a little hard for her to get in and out because it's so easily collapsable when trying to get in the in entrance.
I really hope that the toy holds up because I think it's fun. It's not a toy you can be too rowdy in!

This is ok for the price. But between my 18 month old and 4 year old, it had a tear in the side at the seam within a week. It also doesn't stay open very well. I will look for other options when ordering a replacement.

Watch for springing!!!!!
This is a neat little ball pit. Both my kids and my cats love it. It doesn't come with enough balls- so if you're thinking about getting more do it. Also- there is no warning on the box but the tent is like a spring. It's a good thing I stopped my friends son from taking out of the box because it sprang full force into my face and left it sore and swollen for a few days, can you say OUCH?!?

This was a Christmas present for 9 month old twin boys. It lasted less than 3 months. The seams were ripping out and one of the twins figured out it was funner to get in it & tip it over, which dumps out all the balls. We replaced it with the fish pool, which although it isn't as big inside (kind of tight for 2 of them) its cuter, contains the balls, and doesn't tip over! Spend your money there instead! http://www.amazon.com/Intex-Lazy-Fish-Inflatable-Baby/dp/B00HIWWIOE?ie=UTF8&ref_=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_13

Tore after 3 hours.
We had this out Christmas morning. All full of balls and ready to go. After about 3 hours of normal play by my 9 month old, there's already a tear in one of the seams on the bottom where balls can now leak out. It's about 6 inches long. He's not very big, and isn't rough with this. Very poorly made.

Fun toy, poor quality--already failing
I love the idea and the set up, however the quality is poor. I had it for less than a month, with fairly gentle use and a few of the edges are starting to fray and two seams are coming apart. I emailed the seller with no response. My advice, buy a different product. However, my daughter loves the ball pit

Good for kids and cats!
Looks just like the picture, exactly as described, and my niece loves it. (: I'm very pleased. I know 100 balls doesn't seem like a lot, but it's perfect for the size of this. With all the balls in there and her and her cousin sitting in there, it's perfectly spaced. If you get too many balls, you'll have them all over your house. My cats even love going in there and playing when she's not in there, lol! I'm pleased.
EDIT: I read a lot of the reviews saying the fabric ripped and the wires pop out. The little girl i bought this for is 3 years old. Her and her cousins all aged 3-5 play in it quite a bit. It has yet to rip or have a wire pop through. They crawl in and out repeatedly and even fall against the mesh sides. This ball tent has held up like a champ. No rips or wire defects here.
