One Touch™ is the newest technology in tents today. Easier than a magic wand, simply remove the tent from the carry bag, unfold it and then lift it up and with just One Touch™ the tent is set up! No more parts or extra hands needed to enjoy the benefits of this new, patented technology. Each tent is UV treated; SPF 30 rated, and has a waterproof floor. What a great way to spend time in a well-ventilated play tent with your baby. Completely washable polyethylene floor makes this tent a perfect shelter to change baby out of the sun. Two mesh side panels allow air to ventilate easily and the front mesh door is easy to close with radius-cut Velcro. Front mesh door keeps mobile babies in one place while mommy is reading her favorite book! Must have for all moms and babies!
In addition to "One Touch Lil" Nursery Tent Item #20317, we also carry the same tent in a different color combination, Item #20316. When your baby becomes a little older, we suggest our bigger "One Touch" Tents, they come in three different color combinations, Item #20310, Item # 20315, and Item #20318.
