OMG! How cute is that tent!!!
I have to have one!
This one makes my little measly pup tent look like we're camping in a prison yard! (Room!) LOL!
Jess don't feel bad about not being tent freindly <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> I hold the same position, putting it together for me would be a disaster! Besides, that's where my teenage son comes in handy! (And he camps!)

Off to Target

I didn't have any luck, the number goes directly to a Minnesota Target that you can't even order or request info on the tent without a Target Product ID. WAAAHH! I want one!
What I did find out is that David Kirk supposedly provides that product and other product lines like clothing and books exclusiely to Target. Why couldn't he be Wal-Mart friendly??? The Bum.
I'm depressed.

I went and picked up two tonight!

I'm not so sure this tent is gonna work out for me <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tantrum.gif" alt="" />

I like the tent itself- the mesh & dimensions but there's too many other things that I'm not sure about. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/nixweiss.gif" alt="" />

For those of you that already have this- have you found a way to glider proof it? I thought about sewing around the top but I wasn't sure how the bottom would work <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/nixweiss.gif" alt="" /> I'm not sure if I'm gonna keep this <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crying.gif" alt="" /> It's just sooo cute though!!

The number I called that Jess provided said they couldn't ship even if they had them, they could just tell me the nearest store, if I had the product ID. I also looked on the Target website, no such animal. Then I go to one Target, on my way home (cause I didn't want to believe the employee, as if she knew!) but I got the story that it was the wrong time of the year try again during the summer when there are bugs. HELLO, THIS SC, theres bugs here until January! If someone else finds a way to order it, please lte us all know!! I'm pleading with ya! I want one soooo bad. My only guess is that in Florida they have a warmer climate to sell more of these to kiddies wanting to hang out with buggies.
If some of you that are located north of me get to your Target and find one, I will CRY!

Well, for those of you that can't find one at target, I found one on Ebay. Here's the link:

Hope that helps. Sorry I couldn't find more.

Hey, I'll go to my Target tomorrow and see if they have them. Patsy, I think it would cost 10 or so to ship to you. Do you want me to get you one? You could paypal the money to me.

I just put more velcro around the bottom to make it stick together all the way around. I love it because I can hang tons of stuff from the top. The gliders love it because they can see out and can actually grab hold of somethign on the side to run up it.

It does only take about 4-5 minutes to put it together.

I had one of these but took it back because I didnt particularly like how the top connects to the bottom with the velcros =/ But like stated above its pluses include its roomy size and its ability to stay somewhat cool when inside.

No go for the tents being available in Florida. I go to Target all the time. In fact, I was just there tonight looking for a ten because I think my suggies might be ready for tent time, but I didn't see anything like that. I've been to a couple of other Targets in the surrounding area too and haven't seen anything llike this. I'll hit up some more though and see if I can find one, I'll get the Target product code for everyone.

Lol fellow Tampa Bay, I went to the one on N Dale Mabry. There was only one left when I got mine but like I said I returned it. Whether they restock that same one I don't know, it was a couple weeks ago tho so could even have been bought again. I know Target is lil weird on returns, they throw away a lot of them.

Hey everyone, I can take a look around my two area Targets in Melbourne, FL (I have two stores within about 20 minutes of my apartment). If anyone is DESPARATE for one, I could prolly pick it up (if they still have them) and ship it out to you. The only thing is I have no idea how to do Pay Pal so someone will either have to guide me thru that or we'll figure out some other way of payment....As for the velcro around the bottom, Gizzy hasn't managed to come even close to escaping which is nice, so nobody fret, the tent is very secure in my opinion. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wave.gif" alt="" />

SugarBabees,
What did you mean about glider proofing this tent? Why would you need to sew anything?

Because the bottom is only connected by velcro- so of course there are gaps all the way around. I think if I were to sew the bottom it wouldn't be possible to set up the tent... <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/nixweiss.gif" alt="" /> Not sure...

Also- gliders could potentially get out through the top but I'm not as worried about that one. It's mainly the bottom that's not glider proof at all.

I haven't received mine yet but I think I understand what you are saying. I have some Iron on velcro that may work for that, just to fill in the gaps, I'll let you know when I get a better looksie at the real thing so I can decide if it's practical.

I may end up adding velcro too... I still haven't decided if I'm returning it or not.

Aside from the escape factor I think it's a pretty nice tent! It took me longer than 4 or 5 minutes to set it up though, but it was also my first time. We'll see!

I'm curious to hear what everyone else thinks once they get theirs... sounds like a lot of people will be hitting up Target this weekend <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

whoo! yeah i got the last one for 7.50! The gaps around the bottom were an issue, so I just used good old masking tape ( the double wide style) and taped the flaps up. I'm so excited, i can't wait to use it tonight!

Gizzy's been using it with me the past few nights and no attempt even of escape, I don't think he's even realized there's a few small openings if you make sure the bottom fabric is touching all the way around....I'm not sure what was meant by they could escape thru the top, I'm about to go in it now to play so I'll do a thorough check, but I hadn't seen anything like an opening at the top....have fun everyone!!!!!!!!!!....oh P.S. if you just kinda collapse it at the end of the night, almost so it looks like a tall pole, you dont have to worry about the disassembly and assembly part, Zack and I just put it in a closet at the end of every night and when it comes out the next night we just unfold it!

I got one off ebay since I don't have a Target close plus I figured they wouldn't have them if I drove there anyway. Can't wait to get it and try it out. I'll be in with my babies anyway so am not worried about them escaping from the bottom and if becomes a problem will use the double sided tape or velcro. I'm just excited this old fat girl don't have to get down to crawl into a junior pup tent anymore <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
