Which playpen is better to buy?
When choosing the best playpen, you should rely primarily on the child's age, as well as on the dimensions of your home. For small children the best option would be folding arenas, equipped with a grid. On the one hand, it will protect the child in the event of a possible fall, on the other - the baby will always be in full view of the mother. The most versatile item in this category is a playpen, because it can be used as a crib from birth.
Standard folding playpens are good for everyone: safe, spacious, but, despite everything, they will take up quite a lot of space, even when assembled.
If you need a budget and a simple option, you can purchase an inflatable manezhik. In the deflated state, it fits anywhere. Its only disadvantage may be the fragility of use.
Playpens fencing most durable, but we do not recommend their use for kids - falling, the child can hit the solid partitions. Therefore, these arenas are suitable for older children as a safe play area.
Despite the fact that playpens, like all children's products, are manufactured according to quality standards, and everything is provided for maximum safety, you should not leave the child in it unattended.
Have a good shopping!
