PRODUCT: Graco Pack 'n' Play Sport Playpen (www.gracobaby.com)Graco Pack 'n' Play Sport Playpen

DESCRIPTION: An umbrella fold lightweight hexagonal playpen which can be used indoors and outdoors, with mesh sides, removable UV resistant canopy, lockable zip hatch, waterproof floor and carry sack. Dimensions are:

Unfolded: H70 x W100 x L100cm
Folded: H72 x W30 x W30cm
Weight: 5.4kg 

GOOD POINTS: The Graco Pack 'n' Play is an incredibly well designed and versatile playpen-come-playden which is durable, sturdy and easy to set up, and as such is perfect for both indoor and outdoor use.

The playpen is hexagonal in shape and unfolds in an umbrella style design, secured open via two safe and substantial clips on the sides of the playpen, and supported on six 'feet' around the corners of the hexagonal. The set-up is very quick indeed and can be done in seconds! In its folded form, the playpen is very portable due to its lightweight aluminium frame (less than 6kg), and it slides into its own carry bag (included) which has a drawstring top, pocket and carry handle for easy transportation. Its compact folded size also makes it easy to store when not in use, making it well suited to those short on space.

The playpen is a generous size and has a large floor area for your child to play in. The net sides offer a secure barrier to your child, while providing ventilation as well as enabling your child to see and be seen at all times. The interior base of the playpen is also water resistant for easy clean-ups.

Graco Pack 'n' Play Sport PlaypenYoung children can simply be lifted in and out of the playpen as required, while older children can use the playpen as a fun den or playhouse, with access via a zip-open door incorporated into one of the sides (which can be tied back for convenience). This door can usefully be locked on the outside as required to prevent younger children from operating the hatch themselves. 

Another great feature of the playpen is that it is UV resistant (50+ UPF), which makes it ideal for all seasons, and particularly for garden play and taking on picnics, holidays or to the beach. It even comes with a separate removable canopy which attaches into two connecting points on opposite sides of the playpen, and fastens around the outside of the hexagonal frame via Velcro tabs. The great bonus of this design is that you can fold part of the canopy back dependent on the amount of shade (or shelter) you wish to provide from the sun (or rain!). In addition, when not in use this hood can simply be folded up and stored in a clever in-built deep pocket on one of the sides of the playpen.

In our opinion, this is a really versatile and portable product which has been incredibly well designed to cater for both younger and older children, and has all the safety features required to give parents piece of mind and children plenty of holiday fun! 

BAD POINTS: Quite expensive for a playpen, but very durable. It does require a fairly large area for use, however it does fold up to a compact size for stowing.

PRICE: Approx. £115
