I have had my glider since December 4 2010. I am trying to find as much information about gliders as I can find. Why is tent time so important?

Hi and welcome to GC!!! wave

Tent time helps with bonding with your glider! It allows them to run and play without being inhibited, but also allows them to jump on you and learn to trust! During the first few tent times, it's good to just sit and let them jump all over...on you, off you...crawling all over...without grabbing or trying to touch them. Once they realize that you're okay, then it's okay to being interacting with them and giving them little treats when they come to you! Tent time is an integral part of bonding!! smile

We don't have a lot of room in our house. Could you recommend a tent that you could put up and down everytime and where to get one. What size is good too.

Genji and Sansbug are the most commonly recommended.

You could also do bathroom time, but you need to do some SERIOUS glider proofing. You can learn about glider proofing on my site, located in my signature, or going to Suz's site.

The Genji tent is great...relatively inexpensive on Amazon and well worth it! Folds down to about 2 ft in diameter - not bad! It's a pop up - no assembly required. thumb

Some people even put the tent up on their bed, it's comfy and don't take up extra space. thumb

if you check out the sansbug website there are pictures.. I believe most who have the sansbug go with the medium 2 person tent, the green one..

Thank you guys so much! How do you get toys to hang in the tent? This should be done everyday right?

Alligator clips work or what I used before the playroom was very small clamps from Home Depot that would attach to the seam flaps at the top. You can also build a small PVC frame, too. smile
