this pop up tent is really easy to use at first, it just pops right out of the bag and is already set up. It is fairly small in comparison to other tents. I'll put my daughter in her car seat in it at the pond and there is little extra room. The biggest problem about this tent is trying to put it back in the bag! It is IMPOSSIBLE to get it to break down. the directions are just plain awful. 3 people have tried to get it to collapse back into the bag and did not succeed. I've resorted to just smushing it up and putting it half in the bag (no pun intended) and that's about as far as i can get. For 30$ I probably could have gotten a much better one. Don't waste your money!
