This is my Oma's tent. She got it when she was 15 or 16 back in 1940? She camped oodles and oodles of times in it and when it got passed to us a grandkids, we frequently set it up in out backyard to play, sleep, and do school work in. It just has canvas sides(which by the way, smell like my childhood!) with no bottom, so you don't need to worry about getting it dirty and cleaning it out. It's just the perfect thing to set up when the girls need something "new" to do outside. It's a quick set up and easy take down too!
