Assembly of the pod was not too difficult. I did not get the stand but instead purchased some hardware for mounting to the ceiling: a screw-hook into a ceiling joist attached to a 300-lb-rated spring and a 700-lb-rated swivel to lessen torque and impulse on the joist connection.
The kids love it! It is quite sturdy. Plenty sturdy enough for an adult or several children up to the recommended maximum weight. Comfortable bottom cushion.
Problem 1: The zipper to the bottom cushion compartment popped open, and I couldn't get it back together. This does not affect function but kinda looks bad.
Problem 2: The light strand worked for a few days until a kid grabbed it and it easily snapped in 2 or 3 places and now is garbage. Oh well. They looked kinda cool when they worked but weren't bright enough for reading anyway.
Over all, it remains a popular fixture in the play room.

Super cute and durable Hugglepod. What a wonderful way to instantly add memorable childhood memories! Hanging from a tree relaxing, reading a book, chatting with friends all while having privacy in a tree fort. We take ours down when we are done playing in and with it too keep spiders out and to keep it free from rain and weather elements. so far so good. We use a two step ladder to help kids climb in and out of it while it is hanging from tree limb. The lights inside are fun and really cute idea. I have even had other neighbor parents ask if they can try it out! Comments have been like is that something from Peter Pan movie? It is magical! I wish I had one when I was little! Kids will not forget their hugglepod memories and smile when when spoken about. It is not fun assembling I have to be honest. Lots of sweat and frustration, however, once it is completed it is worth it.
We love ours! Thanks Hearthsong for selling quality classic childhood toys!

The tree hangers are a wonderful thing! Makes hanging the huggle pod super easy. We bought extra to have on hand for anything else that they might be used for. Having a great wooded area gives us lots of options to use them.

This stand is being used to hold a Hugglepod for my grandchildren. It is strong and sturdy and holds the Hugglepod safely and the children are enjoying it very much. It was shipped quickly and easy to put together. Very good experience.

I bought the huggle pod to place outside, hanging it off a tree, taking it in and out to prevent damage from the weather. This became tiresome and irritating to me and to my son that needs it for therapy. I thought cheaper would be better by not investing in the stand. Once I discovered my error, I ordered it. I received it in less than a week of ordering it. I put it together myself with no problems in a matter of minutes. I cannot express how much this has helped my son by having access to it 24/7. He has even slept in it!

This stand (and the swing/pod) withstood the rigors of a slumber party with six 10-year-old girls and the younger "annoyyyyiiing" 2 year-old brother. 5 stars, as this group can destroy almost anything.... they love it.

for something so expensive, to have flimsy plastic zippers was disappointing. Dont get me wrong, the overall purchase we love, but putting the cushion pad in the zippered compartment in the floor of the pod was where the trouble began. The flimsy plastic zipper simply ripped right off as I was trying to zipper it shut. now, though the kids love it, we have a gaping open floor compartment that does not close on the ouside bottom of the pod.
disappointed in the workmanship after paying as much as I did. the rest of it seemed sturdy.
thre is also no easy fix for this, and I am not willing to pay yet more money to fix the problem, and it is WAY to big to return for a new one. so I guess we just deal with it.
