I imagine these things must have been incredibly flimsy, but the ad design itself was rock solid -- looking at this thing for five minutes this morning had me trying to figure out where I could install a log cabin in our flat. Also: holy gendered ad copy, Batgirl.
Size Approx. 3 ft. high—9 ft. square, 23cubic ft. inside. Endless hours of play run. Big: enough for 2-3 kids to ‘Live’ in this cabin of their very own. Constructed of specially treated, safe… flameproof and waterproof DuPont Polyethelene. Use year round, indoors or outdoors. No tools needed, nothing to assemble. Sets up in a jiffy, folds compactly for easy storage. Walls and door are realistically imprinted in authentic brown split-log design. Peaked roof is in contrasting color.
