Tiny display model tent?

Anyone know how I can get my hands on one of those miniature tents used as display models in the sporting goods sections of many stores?

The mini-tents I'm thinking of feature working zippers and bug screens; they are usually displayed in stores that sell tents but don't have the floor space to put a full-sized one up as a demo. I've long felt that they would make unique play houses / hiding places for my cat. (Far more interesting from my perspective than the standard cat beds, at any rate.) As far as I know they are returned to the manufacturer when the tent model is retired, but I can't find any info on them (Google either gives me full-sized tents used as display models or scale models for hobbyists).
