I'm not sure if anyone else has found this tent, but my fiance just bought it for Gizzy today. It's called "Be Good To Bugs" lol. It stands over four feet high and is wide enough for both me and my fiance to get in with Gizzy with plenty of extra space (no crouching when sitting or anything, woo hoo). It's not one of those play houses with no floor and open flap windows. The whole thing, all the sides, are mesh screen that Gizzy RACES up and down. We attached his hanging rope from the top, and he jumps from the mesh walls to the hanging rope in the middle and climbs up and down. Like I said, I wasn't sure if anyone else had found this tent too, but I figured I'd put it on here because it's much easier to assemble than one of those junior camping tents. It's still a play tent, but it has a bottom to it and no window openings....perfect for playtime!! It was at Target for $14.98 and it has a green "leaf" roof and yellow sides with vines on them...adorable!! Let me know if you have anymore questions, but we tested it tonight with Gizzy and he LOVED it! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/yelclap.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/muchlove.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumb.gif" alt="" />

That sounds great! I'm going to head to Target tomorrow. Did you find it in sporting goods or in the toys or what?

Here's the info I have for you...
Dimensions:
65 1/2 inches long
65 1/2 incges wide
48 3/4 inches tall...very nice sized tent

Zack said he found it in the camping section at Target, it looks like a kids' version of a sunroom sorta.

The phone number for questions or comments listed on the thing it folds back into is 1-800-316-6151....hope this helps!...it's great cuz when you travel it breaks apart and fits into a carrying case the length of an umbrella (a bit thicker around tho)....

Good find!! I think I might run over to Target tonight & pick one up.

I'm assuming it stays a lot cooler in there since it's not totally enclosed like a normal tent. That would be great!!! I get sooooo hot in the tent so I avoid tent time- as soon as that zipper door is zipped all the way I bust a sweat <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" />

I love this! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumb.gif" alt="" /> I am going to try target this weekend and get one! The kids tent I have is good but it gets so hot inside and my back kills me from crouching. I think it will be better for the gliders too since they can climb the mesh. Thanks for sharing this great find! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/dance.gif" alt="" />

Target had another one like that in the mesh, zipped up the front, and had a floor... It was a castle all in pinks... It was so cool. I think it was $30 though. My husband rolled his eyes at me... That was a few months back, but i think i found that more in the kid/bedroom section. So look around, you might find some other neat ones.

Sarah (SugarBabees),
Yeah, it definitely does stay much cooler than a regular tent because of all the sides being that mesh screening....I think the picture doesn't do it justice since there are two kids sitting in it, it really is nice and roomy, my fiance is pretty tall and we sat across from eachother with no crouching and had PLENTY of room to spare....and Kayla (butlerfamilyzoo), this one is only $14.98 so maybe your husband will be more open to the possibility lol <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

Just checked out the tent and I love it! I'm just starting tent time and also have the heat problem in my tent, so this one looks perfect!

Thanks so much for posting your great find <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/muchlove.gif" alt="" />

Ooh oooh ooh! I can't wait until I get out of work tonight!! I'm going up to Target to pick up one of these tents <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/multi.gif" alt="" />

I was wondering though- you said that this is easier to set up than a regular tent... How so? Does it have all those poles connected with elastic- man people say it's easy to pop up those tents but I've knocked many things off my shelves assembling tents!

It has some poles but less than a regular tent, it's simpler in assembly....Zack said it took 5 minutes for him to get it up and running lol, so I'm assuming that's less than a full-fledged tent

AggieCutie, would you agree with that statement? I've watched people attempt the regular tent, and it's sometimes not a pleasant experience....I don't think it pops up in your face (I've had those and it almost took my head off it popped up so quick, Zack had to dive for cover lol)....Zack said it didn't pop when he was putting it together because it doesn't have that round wire in it already when you take it out of it's case.....no broken noses!!!! lol

Tents are one of those funny type things that are SO hard to put together at first and then they just kind of amazingly appear up and down when you gt the hang of it. I worked for an animal reserve and we were teaching kids how to camp correctly outside, and it takes 4 people to set up one of the tents. The first time, in training, took us almost 45 minutes. By the end of 2 months, we could do it with 2 people in less than 10 minutes.
