To: Tiny Tots Toy Company

15456 Pyramid Way
College Park, FL 33133

Dear Customer Service Representative,

a) 2 I have purchased other toys manufactured by your company in the

past, and have always been impressed with the quality and
selection that Tiny Tots has made available to its customers.

b) 1 I recently purchased one of your Tiny Tents for my three-year old.

c) 5 I sincerely hope this is a one-time incident, and that any future

purchases I make will live up to the standard my family has come
to expect from your company.

d) 3 Unfortunately, after viewing the components that came with the

tent are in Portuguese and Russian, not in English. These two
unforeseen problems have resulted in the tent remaining
unassembled and unacceptable as a toy for my daughter.

e) 6 If reasonable arrangements are not made within ten business days,

I will return the tent to the store and expect a refund.

f) 4 I am writing to request replacements for the missing parts, and a

copy of the full set of assembly instructions in English.
