I purchased this playpen in October of last year, and at the time my Son absolutely hated being in it! But now that he's got a little older, and got more used to it, he doesn't mind being put in it at all for a little while when Mommy is doing some laundry or cleaning up the house.
Playpens can be very useful, but I wouldn't want him to be in it for long periods of time. But it is of course very handy when you need to do some things without your bundle of joy in your arms and you don't have to worry about them getting in to anything either.
What makes this playpen different from the rest? Mostly it's affordability. It cost me around $50, and it was well worth it. It is a very sturdy playpen, it has some very nice colors, is very basic, does the job and it's not much different then any other playpen I have seen on the market.
Although, I do find it difficult to fold up. I tend to forget to pull up the latch in the middle before pushing in the buttons on the side to get it closed, but with more practice, I'm sure it will get easier. Another nice thing about this playpen though is it comes with a nice carrying case which is good for travel.
