I can't believe how fast they came. I just ordered them... and here they are... not too hard, not too soft - just right:) The Goldielocks in the middle chair is played by Anais. She spent most of the afternoon pushing them around and climbing up and down. My kids think that furniture is just fort material, waiting for some action. Anyhow, I'm happy with these new fort pieces. Now I'm on the lookout for a round kid table that would be complementary. It's all about the hunt!
