best summer toys of 2016

If you’re like me and would live for the nights that Disney Channel would play Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century (side note: I lost all chill when I heard that Disney Channel plans to celebrate their 100th Disney Channel Original Movie with a weekend-long marathon of all the former DCOM favorites), then Pacific Play Tents is about to make all your former galactic dreams come true with the totally stellar Glow-in-the-Dark Galaxy Combo Junction tent. All I can say is, zetus lapetus!

Kids will be able to let their imaginations soar out of this world with this combo tent that features a large dome tent and four connecting 4-foot crawl tunnels. Not only will your children spend hours playing as they weave in and out of the many passages and make themselves at home in the dome center, but it also leaves plenty of room for children to interact and play together. The tent is roomy and made for multiple space explorers, so parents should prepare for when their home becomes the “cool house” for weekend playdates.

The tent features galaxies full of colorful stars and planets that encourage wonder and imaginative play. Additionally, the tunnels’ steel poles are covered with foam padding so that your little ones can crawl in and out of their domain with comfort, ease, and safety. The Patented G-3 Safety-Coated Poles also prevent splinters and shattering in case of breakage. Whether kids take their space-themed tent inside or outside, once darkness falls, the cosmos and other fun details on the tent glow in the dark for a magical space-like experience.

For the adventurous space cadets who dare to take their mission to the great outdoors, the tent’s four tunnels have no-see-um mesh, which is perfect for keeping pesky bugs out, and stellar for some real-life stargazing. Plus, the floor is completely waterproof, so even if the grass is wet, the tent will stay dry. 

Parents, I know what you may be thinking right now: This all sounds pretty cool, but how the heck do I set this tent up?

Thankfully, Pacific Play Tents has your back on this one. The Glow-in-the-Dark Galaxy tent is made for fast and easy assembly, and even comes with color-coated poles and pockets. Mom and dad don’t have to worry about time spent scratching their heads as they stare at the instruction manual, because in just minutes the space center pops to life.

Kids will want to reach for the stars and get lost in space with their Glow-in-the-Dark Galaxy Combo Junction tent. With cool glow-in-the-dark features and the tunnels’ mesh ceilings, their minds will be totally spaced out— in the best way possible. The only downfall: Getting them to come to the dinner table just got that much harder.
