Kids playhouse and tent question

I have a tent (Mambo Combo tent) and playhouse like the below picture for my kids with the following dimensions Ryan's Room Mambo Combo Play Tent and Tube Trio

One (1) Clubhouse Tent - 38"W x 28.5"D x 42.5"H
One (1) Dome Tent - 47"W x 47"D x 35"H

Unfortunately,few parts of(i.e. poles and connectors are missing which makes it unusable. The company no longer sells the replacement poles.

I did find other products which has replacement poles but of different dimensions . For example 58" x 48" x 58" High. Not sure if I can still buy this as replacement and if it still would work.

Replacement Poles for 58" x 48" x 58" High House Tent

if not any other suggestions are welcome.

My guess is that you can cut the poles to fit. The question is are the replacement connectors safe?

Many tent poles used in adult tents are fiberglass. When bent too far they break and can leave a jagged end and sometimes really sharp fiberglass fibers. Not good where kids may be rough housing or climbing. I would use pieces of PEX water piping for your poles. It is flexible and will bend without breaking. The plumbing dept of most home centers sell it in 5 or 10' long straight pieces. It's more expensive than bulk tubing in a coil but the straight pieces are... straight so you don't have to deal with the curve coming off a coil.
