Pros: These panels are gorgeous. I love that they are mesh, which ideally creates a less claustrophobic space. I really enjoyed the clip on play surface that came with the enclosure. The panels themselves clip really securely, and I can see them being sturdy. Once assembled, the door was easy to use.
Cons: Despite appearing simple, these panels were really difficult to assemble and disassemble. I pinched myself no less than three times trying to get them apart after I took them out of the packaging, and putting them together was a bit frustrating. Despite the mesh and the breathable, airy appearance, these are HUGE, and feel very overwhelming in our space. I felt like we didn't have anywhere to put these in our house, and would feel even more penned in if we were in an apartment. I bought these because we have an open floor plan, but in spite of that, it made the space feel very constrained.
Ultimately, we returned these. Penning our child in goes against our parenting philosophy, even though we'll have to be on higher alert since we also have a preschooler. With the right childproofing, I think we can get along without a playpen area, but I am disappointed these didn't work out. They're so much prettier than anything else I have seen on the market.
