Good Option

Like this for keeping 18 month-old in a larger space than pack-n-play. Mesh is sturdy and easy to set up as well as transport to nana's. Placed cushioned floor mat underneath for additional protection. Issue is that even with locked joints, baby is able to move around and is needed to be enclosed with surrounding furniture pieces. For as much as it costs, it shouldn't be able to "reshape" when child pushes on it; defies its purpose.

Decent product, "expandable" is misleading
February 5, 2021
Product: 8/10
Marketing: 0/10

Aesthetically pleasing, well built compared to competitors. I would suggest making it more flexible for a wider variety of angles. Furthermore, it is ridiculous they describe it as "expandable" - it is only expandable if you buy an entire second set. That is not expandable, that is scaleable.

December 23, 2020
We just got this not long ago and none of the corners actually "lock" even when turned all the way into lock position. The corners change angles with very little effort and there is no flooring to mount them to to make it sturdier. I'm extremely disappointed with this product. I would return it if I had the box, but it got wet sitting outside our porch on delivery day.

OMG! Can not function without this play enclosure!
September 21, 2020
I'm the grandma who takes care of my 11 month and 3 yr old granddaughters. I can put the baby in and she doesn't feel confined as we use it to close off a section of the room that is child proof. Or all 3 of us can go in it and play on the floor or read books. The mesh sides are great for learning-to-walk tumbles. Love it

Hole after one week
July 20, 2020
I bought two of these, and used 8 sections to make a large play space for my 7 month old downstairs since he's staying home with me due to Covid-19 while I'm working remotely. The pros are that it's neutral, easy to open and close, love the mesh, and it's easy to adapt to bigger or smaller as needed. The cons: there's a hole in the fabric covering one of the rods after only one week. Seems ridiculous for how much I paid for this.

It's useful but could be better
July 13, 2020
We've had this for a few months, and like it, but it could be better. It doesn't really keep its shape even when the joints are locked into place. My 9 mo is still able to push it out on the sides when she's trying to stand up. I also wish the busy board had attachments at the bottom. My curious baby likes to pick it up from the bottom and pull on it. That's just a preference though. I do like that it's pretty sturdy mesh. Overall it works.

This has been used for about a month now and is sturdy enough to hold up to my rambunctious toddler. I love how you have the option to anchor it to the wall. Unfortunately how my house is layed out this wasn't an option for me personally but again nice to have options. It's extremely easy to shape into any way you want, size up or down. I was concerned about it sliding because I have a child with cerebral palsy and did not want her hurt herself when she uses the sides as means to support her body weight but I am completely satisfied and have zero issues. (It's nice to not to feel like I have to hover constantly and be able to let her explore and play independently knowing she is safe) I do recommend the mat that goes underneath because it definitely reinforces the sliding factor and is like a ginormous awesome quality yoga mat that's easy to wipe us messes and rolls up nicely.

This has been a lifesaver. It truly is versatile! I can out it Inna hexagon to let my son play in it or block off our extra wide doorway between our kitchen and living room so he can play in an even bigger area! I have even thought about getting a second one!

I bought this a few weeks ago for my daughter. Needed something easy, durable and super cute! Love the mesh clouds and the play pad that comes with it! It's detachable as well so when I put her in the play pen I hand on the side for her to play with as well. Great quality!

Beautiful Playgates
May 5, 2020
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.

Pros (many its great just buy it): This play pen is perfect for keeping our affectionate dog away from our 4 month old baby. We set it up against a wall so had more panels available to create a larger play space. When the pen is set up this way we're able to fit in the baby swing, jumperoo, and play mat with still enough space left over for an adult to sit on the floor with him. I was considering getting two to create a large play pen but I actually ended up only needing one. You can however easily connect 2 of these sets together to create a really large space if you want. It's good quality and I love the mesh panels so you can see baby and baby can see you. It makes it light and airy. Its also not an eyesore in our living room which is a huge plus. The gate is easy to open with one hand.

Cons (one):
The only downside is it is really hard to unlock the panels when you come to set it up straight from the box. There are 6 panels and they arrive connected together in pairs which you have to separate in order to construct the pen. I physically couldn't turn the locking mechanism to detach the two panels from one another and thought perhaps I was doing it wrong. My husband also tried and it turns out that I was doing it right but its just so ****** hard to turn this locking mechanism. We ended up having to get a pair of pliers just so we could turn the lock and detach the panels. Once that drama was over actually setting up the play pen was really easy. Dog is devastated that she can no longer lick the baby.

Love this product!
April 28, 2020
Just had my 3rd child with a large gap between the first 2 and the 3rd child. We did not have a great play area and we needed something to keep the baby safe. I love this gate! The door is easy enough for my older 2 to open and close behind them, the baby is not able to climb up on this because of the mesh siding.
My only complaint is that it could be bigger to fit the standard size playmat. It is smaller so the edges of the mat are hanging out. Not a big deal!
Would buy again!

April 25, 2020
My little one feels like his part of the crowd still inside it! My only doubt is why the gaps between the panels are so big?! I get a little concerned for my kid to get his arm stuck in here but I'll guess well see. For now I'm liking it more than the regular plastic colorful gates that have a way for them to climb up the panels.

I recommend this product because it is a good size, it doesn't fight with The decor in my living room. the reason for 4 stars is because there are spaces in between panels and my baby is always putting hers arms in there and we can't mount like on straight lines.

Great "Baby Jail"
April 22, 2020
We purchased this to help corral our little guy who suddenly became mobile during the Stay at Home order. I'm really pleased with it - mainly because it's not ugly. It's big enough for our baby to roll around in, and for a parent to jump in for quiet time or a story. My little guy really enjoys the activity center, especially the light up rain drop. I had hoped to install it as a rectangle-I was a bit disappointed that isn't possible - but we shifted some furniture and it's great. The walls are pretty see through as well, so baby doesn't lose sight of us during the day. In all, a great purchase!

I bought this when by baby started moving around more and crawling. She would pull to stand up. It was really sturdy and has bumper so it doesn't slide if you have a foam mat underneath. She would start to push it around when she got bigger but it didn't tip over. At first it was hard to assemble because the symbols were confusing, but I just unsnapped it flipped it and it was set up.

Now my baby is really mobile and I could convert it to block the tv or things I don't want her to touch like the wires and outlets.

Also it's mesh so she could see me and feel comfortable that I was right there watching her from the couch as she chilled out in it with all her toys I would make her.

December 14, 2019
We had purchased one enclosure for our daughter a few months back when she really started toddling around and decided to add another to expand its size. We couldn't be more pleased with the functionality and versatility of this playpen. Between the easy open gate, simple method of adding more panels, and the wall mounts, it has been perfect for our changing needs. Plus it stands up to our toddlers craziness which we definitely can't say about everything else!

Could be better
November 27, 2019
We purchased just yesterday and it looks better than others out there and it's sturdier as well. But, it says it's expandable. I thought that meant you could buy extra panels to make it larger, but you cannot. Also, it is lightweight and once babe gets a little bigger, I can see her being able to push it around.

Way better than those plastic gates!
November 8, 2019
Aesthetically pleasing and a good size for my livingroom. Only knocked off a star because of confusing it was to put it together (video says dark side facing out, but that leaves the hinges in the wrong direction) and a little difficult to get the hinges to click closed. Otherwise, baby likes it and I can't see her climbing out of it like she would with the plastic enclosures you see for sale elsewhere.

September 15, 2019
We have had this for a few weeks now and are very happy with it. It's nice to look at and pretty sturdy. My 10 month old can stand up on the panels as long as they are decently supported. This was on the expensive side, but it is nice to look at and we love the versatility of the panels. Plan to use this to keep him contained and block off dangerous areas (fireplace) as needed.

I've had this for the last couple weeks and it have been a lifesaver for my very active crawler. It keeps him safe, it keeps me sane & it's a lot nicer to look at than all the other I found online. It's a bit expensive IMO, but I plan to use it for a long time and with multiple kids.

This playpen is no babyjail :) My daughter loves playing in it and that she can easily see us through the mesh sides. I love that its study (can't be knocked over even by her big brother), easy to wipe clean, and has no sharp edges to get fingers or feet stuck in! Highly recommend even with the high price! Took five minutes to set up and can easily be taken apart.

July 23, 2019
This has a very nice looking design and we tried finding a mesh playpen but most are plastic which we didn't like for possible falls, also mesh has better visibility. We are very pleased with this purchase. The enclosure is also light but we do wish it did simply fold together as opposed to separating each panel (still somewhat quick and simple disassembly). The door is a nice feature but causes some additional shifting if pushed by baby since it's designed to be a looser panel. All the other panels hold in place well. The toy that comes with the enclosure is adorable, with a nice mirror and a couple of simple play features. Nice size enclosure.

Decent to contain the kiddos
July 14, 2019
I don't have another playpen to compare to but my 10 month old can push this thing around like nobody's business which makes it hard to run around the house feeling good about leaving him in there for a few minutes. I have the SkipHop foam flooring and it would have been amazing if this fit exactly around it, but it doesn't. Would have helped it stay in place. Quality is great but overall is small and as mentioned - you kid can definitely push it. If you want to mount it to your walls (which is absolutely not happening) it can get bigger and obviously can't be pushed.

So far so good
June 12, 2019
We purchased this so that our 9 month old could have a play area in our living room that our dogs couldn't invade. We put it on top of a square play mat and it's been working for us these last couple of weeks. I think that one reason it works well is because my son can see through the mesh and not feel so separated from us. My son can lean on the sides and stand up, although when he really wants to my son can push and move the entire structure. The play area is a decent size, but it's not bulky. I would've preferred it to be a square but other than that it's ok. It gets the job done.

Great product!
June 8, 2019
This a great enclosure for our 7 month old. She's starting to roll all around and trying to crawl and kept flying off her playmat (puzzle piece white and grey which is skiphop as well). This keeps her on her mat so we don't have to follow her around and keep moving her so she doesn't bop her head on the hardwood floor. I wish it had 1 more screen so it would fit all the way around her mat and that it would fold a little easier, but otherwise we love it and everyone comments on how nice and sturdy it is and that you can see through it!
