CSN Store Review: Bazoongi Kids Circus Tent

I was contacted by CSN Stores to do a review back in the summertime.  I was so busy this summer that I never really had a chance to get my post done. it is!

I picked this tent out for Luke as his big brothers went back to school leaving him all alone with Mom after having playmates all summer long.  I ordered my tent after hours of searching and trying to decide what I wanted to review.  CSN Stores has over 200 different websites selling everything from air compressors to platform beds to kids toys to exercise equipment.  CSN Stores offers free shipping on tons of different items, which I absolutely love.  More often than not I won't order from a site if I have to pay insane shipping charges.  Another feature of CSN Stores I love is they have a low price guarantee!  If you see the product you like on another site for cheaper, you just click on the link and follow the steps to let them know.  They will match the price to keep your business!  Shipping was super quick and Luke's tent arrived via UPS.

The Bazoongi Kids Circus Tent is no longer available at CSN Stores but they do have several other Bazoongi Kids products to choose from including the smaller version of this one the Bazoongi Kids Special Edition Circus Tent.  This particular tent is really big and that's why I chose it.  I knew that Luke's brothers would want to get in it with him.  The dimensions are   61" H x 54" W x 54" D.  The entrance is on the smaller side but even I  fit inside the thing.  It's very cute and colorful.

The tent itself is made of water-resistant canvas-like fabric and the structure is made of collapsible fiberglass poles.  The poles work on an internal rubber band type system and they all snap together.  The poles are quite difficult to put together and once they're together, they do easily come apart so this is not for rough housing.  The tent comes with a detachable floor and inside the tent fabric are ties to attach it to the pole system.  Another criticism I have of this particular product is that it doesn't come with a bag for storage.

After our first use, one of the poles broke rendering it useless.  I called CSN Stores for a replacement and they not only sent me the broken pole, but an entire set of poles for the tent!  Overall, Luke loves his tent and has much fun playing with it.  It's a bit more involved to get together so if you're looking for a quick put-together-and-play item, skip this one. 

Please check out CSN Stores for all your shopping needs!

I received a coupon code toward the purchase of the product of my choice from in exchange for a teaser post and a review.  Opinions expressed above are my own.

CSN Review

I've been given the chance to do more reviews for CSN stores.  It's been a very busy summer for sure and we're still trying to get back into the swing of a routine.  I do have 2 previous reviews for you very soon.  In the meantime, please check out CSN stores and get a new platform bed !  It's funny, I was just looking on this particular site with my 12 year old son, at the platform beds as he's rapidly growing out of his twin bed.  Check out the one we like HERE.

CSN stores has over 200 online stores with everything from hammocks to dinnerware to printers to kids toys.  Tons of items offer free shipping also, which I LOVE!  Go check them out HERE and stay tuned for some reviews.
