Where to Buy An Old Fashioned Play Pen
A full size play pen for babies can be very hard to find in retail stores. If you’re looking for an old fashioned, full size play pen don’t despair!
The best place to shop for a large, old fashioned play pen is online because you most likely won’t find one in a brick and mortar retail store.
The Joovy New Room2 Portable Playard and the Graco Pack ‘n Play TotBloc Portable Playard with Carry Bag, Tenley are the largest play yards I have found, both offering almost ten square feet of play space. This style is available from several stores online so it’s easy to compare prices.
The Graco Pack ‘N Play Playard, Ashford, features Signature Graco Push-button for Quick and Hassle-free closing, sets up and collapses in a matter of seconds and can be stored in the carrying case the same as a regular Pack and Play. The airy mesh sides make it easy to see baby and for baby to see you.
Finding the Right Play Pen Makes a Difference
One of the safest, most enjoyable times is when baby can play with toys in a safe spot. There’s nothing there to hurt her, no reason she needs to hear, “No!” and, best of all, it gives her the opportunity to strengthen her leg and arm muscles by pulling herself up and walking all around the play pen, building her confidence in her ability to walk!
If you have other children and animals at home, you may need to protect baby from them or them from baby. Either way, this very spacious play pen or play yard is a wonderful option. It’s easy to put up, easy to take down, easy to move and won’t interfere with movement of the rest of the family the way a gate or other play yard options might.
