- Easy to assemble

What more could you ask for in a portable “playpen”?
When my youngsters were small, we had wooden playpens, a huge homemade crib that my dad made, and several portable mesh-type playpens. They worked GREAT for 7 of my 8 offspring. However…child #8 was “Houdini”. He could scramble, worm, climb, and escape from anything I put him in. When he was not yet 2 years old, he had honed his “Houdini skills” down to 10 seconds. No one could believe it! I had to give demonstrations.
Finally, from lumber and PVC pipes, I BUILT him something from which he could not escape in 10 seconds. I used 4×4’s, 2×4’s, and heavy-duty PVC pipes. (I love to build things with my hands.) It was 4 feet tall, and about 8 feet square.
Eventually, he learned how to climb up the sides, so I purchased heavy-duty marine canvas, and with my staple gun, gave it a roof. We HAD to get some work done, and insure his safety. I installed a plywood door, complete with hinges and a handle, painted a fan blade, and put “Jon’s Jail” on it, and screwed it to the door – and finally – he was temporarily confined, and happy.
I think he would have loved this Friendly Toys Little Playzone much better. His homemade “jail” did not come with electric sounds and lights!Buy Now
