“ Brand: Cesar UK / Type: Playhouse / Tents „
I brought this for my younger daughter for christmas as shes a avid Peppa pig fan, and she loves the concept of playing hide and seek and pretend houses. I think it cost me around £20.00 and from the pictures looked great, not to big and yet not to small.
It seemed a great toy and with being peppa pig i thought that my daughter would love it, the tent was brightly colored and it was covered in different pictures of peppa and her family. It had a roll up door with could be secured with two little Velcro tabs, it looked great in the picture but a was to be proved wrong!
Christmas day came and went put it up for my daughter which proved more harder than it looked. It took two of us about 20 minutes to erect it and each time we threaded the poles through and tried to connect them with each other it kept falling over.
The tent did not all all seem safe or sturdy and after we had managed our best to get it looking relativity like the picture it stood with one side looking rather wonky.
Also is was very small and only just about fit my daughter inside and when my older daughter tried to get in with her there was no room at all. So it certainly didn't fit the description it had stated in the item description on the box or the reviews i had read on the internet.
After about 2 hours of my daughter playing in it, it continuously kept collapsing.
So once my daughter had gone to bed i took it down and put everything back in the box and once the shop in question has re-opened after christmas i took it back and asked for a refund as i wasn't at all happy with it. I had spent £20.00 for a piece of cloth and some poles and it wouldn't even stay up. The lady at the counter was understanding and gave me a full refund.So i then used the money to buy my daughter something more useful.
I was rather disappointed with the item and have written to the manufacturers that made the product to express my concerns, OK so i only paid £20.00 but thats not the principal of the matter.
So the lesson i have learned here that toy's being a brand name or character doesn't always mean that there going to be of brilliant quality!
