Q:May I order additional panels?
A:Fellow purchaser here. I didn’t see an option for ordering additional, individual panels, but I ordered two more sets after I got the first one. With 24 panels, I was able to customize configurations in 3 current rooms of my house.

Q:what are the dimensions?
A:If you set it up as a square with two sections on each side, it is 5 ft by 5 ft. If you form it into an octagon, it is about 6 ft 2 in by 6 ft 2 in.

Q:can you make it into one big long barrier? how long would that be?
A:Yes you make it into one long barrier. It is a very enjoyable space for children to play.

Q:Is this compatible with the Friendly Toys Little Playzone?
A:I am not sure, it looks a little different and from different manufactures. My grandson who is 10 months now loves it and the parents have a safe place to put baby so they can get things done.

Q:does it make sounds
A:No no sounds

Q:DearPlase, weight and dimensions???. Thanks

A:With it all in the box it’s about 30 lbs. Each panel itself is maybe 5 lbs. Overall dimensions, without measuring, is about a 7ft diameter circle. It’s big! I have it bordered from each edge of my couch (8 ft long) and encircled is the coffee table and there’s still plenty of room for baby, myself, and toys. Baby’s not…

I have it bordered from each edge of my couch (8 ft long) and encircled is the coffee table and there’s still plenty of room for baby, myself, and toys. Baby’s not moving around yet though.

Q:Is this easy to assemble or somewhat portable? Looking to set it up weekly at varying locations.
A:This is playpen is super easy to install and take a part. No worries about setting it up at different locations.

Q:how many sq ft?
A:About six feet I think. I love this product and so does my ten month old!

Q:Are there additional panels I can purchase?
A:We have not been able to find them but it is plenty big

Q:does anyone use this for outdoors?
A:Yes I use it indoor and sometimes take it outdoors. It is great for both! My daughter doesn’t seem to mind being in as much out side but doesn’t care to be in it inside the house.

Q:Can I buy additional panels?
A:Yes.

Q:My 10 month old pulls himself up on everything & shakes the life out of our baby gate. Is this playpen sturdy enough to accommodate such a rowdy baby?
A:Absolutely…it has little clasps that hold the gate together its next to impossible for my 16 month old to push it over and she is much bigger than most kids her age so i know that the 10 month old would be fine its very sturdy.

Q:Can I add extension

A:You can easily connect and disconnect panels, to make it as long or short as you like. I Love this playpen for my daughter, it has provided us with a child safe zone of the house. It also protects our dog from non-stop harassment… I am not sure if my dog appreciates the irony. The stickers are cute, but you will just…

It also protects our dog from non-stop harassment… I am not sure if my dog appreciates the irony. The stickers are cute, but you will just end up removing them from the playpen or your baby’s mouth, and the door seems to be more often stepped over then opened, though I might appreciate the the difficulty of the gate locking contraption when my daughter is more dexteritious.

Q:can it stand on its own in 1 straight line? i want to make a wall separating half my room
A:Yes it can stand in a straight line to divide a room. There are sections cups on the bottom that hold it up but it’s still easy to push over. We used it to separate a room but had to screw it into the wall so he couldn’t push it over.

Q:How long does this take to ship?
A:4 to 5 days.Thank you.

Q:Does this move around when placed on a mat? I’m looking to buy this and either those letter (puzzle piece) foam tiles or a one piece (Korean) mat.
A:It was surprisingly sturdy, I did get the one piece Korean mat which I’m very pleased with as well. It fits well on top of the mat edge. The cushion is excellent and easy to maintain. This playpen was a good decision.

Q:Is this compatible to the baby diego?
A:yes

Q:Does the pink gate and the blue gate fit together? We already own the blue version but would like the pink IF it fits in with the blue.
A:Yes. It will fit just fine.

Q:Can the door stay unlocked so kids can go in and out?
A:No

check-price-on-amazon

Q:the panels move easily everyone baby touches or lean on them, how can I stop this?
A:I had to actually put 50 gallon tubs that were loaded down with clothes around the sides of the playpen! It’s not worth your money! I wish I had bought something else

Q:i already have this but when i bought it from someone the door was broken is there a way to only buy the door?
A:We unfortunately don’t sell panels separately.

Q:do the panels click into position at various angles to help keep the shape that you configure?
A:No. There is only one connection point but there are rubber feet on the bottom to help keep it from sliding.

Q:Is it easily transferable? or do you have to in screw it every time? how do i take from one how to the other? or inside and then outside?
A:It’s easy to take apart and put together . No screws or tools needed. Th panels are light but sturdy. They link together. I love this play yard! It’s by far the best investment I’ve made as far as baby gear goes.

Q:Hi do you guys ship to guam by mailing address?
A:hi dearsorry but no shipping to guam by mailing address,all the best

Q:Ship to Guam?
A:hi dearsorry but no shipping to guam,all the best

Q:Do you ship to U.S. territories?
A:HI DEAR,i shipper only to USAall the best

Q:Is this set compatible to the today’s kids set?
A:Sorry, I’m not familiar with that

Q:i’m a little leery about children’s products made in china. is it safe and free from harmful chemicals (e.g. bpa,etc)?my little one chews everything!
A:Yes, my two year old also chews on everything. It is suppose to be bpa free

Q:Instructions said the door can be a gate. How do I do this?
A:Sorry I do not know, i have not used it as a gate. But I now have to put the door against the wall because at 14 months he knows how to open it

check-price-on-amazon

Q:can this be placed on carpet
A:Yes of course. It can be placed on many surfaces. I love this product

Q:does it have a bottom (floor)
A:No. U will need to buy a mat to go under it. I have hardwood floors so that’s what I did and it’s great

Q:What are the actual weight and size restrictions? Would anyone recommend this for a 14 to 18 month old?
A:It really depends how active ur baby is mines 14 months and he’s still ok in there but I had a baby yesterday that came to visit and he’s 18 months and he was trying to go over it and he almost did ! So what ever age they are they would still have to be supervised, but I love the play pen .

Q:Can I order replacement rubber disks for the bottom of the panels? Have lost a few with use and now the playpen slides back and forth making it unsafe
A:Have you tried contacting the manufacturer? Are you talking about the thing for under the door? Sorry I have yet to come across that problem…

Q:which one is better this or Baby Diego Cub’Zone Playpen and Activity Center for my 15 months son ? need to last at least until he becomes 2

the way i have researched this and seen them, in my humble opinion, there is no difference. they are most likely made by the exact same manufacture but just branded differently when purchased by the reselling company or distributor. Just how like walmart, costco, etc..can do to Nintendo and purchase a slightly different wii or Nintendo can make a slightly different branded wii for each distributor. I would probably make my choice based on reviews of the company (i.e. return), shipping cost, cost and availability. We’ve used our for 4 months and love it. Our lil girls loves her area and we love the fact we can leave her in there while attending to other activities (like going to the bathroom…lol). Good luck.

Q:Is there any difference between the blue and the pink one?
A:Yes. Different lock on the door and I think slightly different activity door. Same concept though.

Q:Can the child make the hinges move, for instance changing the shape from an octagon to a square, or flattening it out, by pushing on the walls?
A:Yes , they have suction cups underneath but yes if they are 1 + yrs and older and strong enough yes.

Q:How high is it?
A:About 2 1/2 to 3 feet. I was shocked how sturdy and tall it was. Very nice and as stated indoor/outdoor. Has a locking gate as well.

Q:Can this be mounted to a wall? I am trying to barricade off entertainment center & would have to build 2 or 3 sides & then mount to walls.
A:No not without damaging it

Q:What is the total square footage this playpen can cover?
A:I’m so sorry. I traveled for the holidays, so once I’m home, I can measure it. However, the alphabet mat that we have fits perfectly inside it, minus one letter (five letters across and five down). I hope that helps some. Once again, I apologize, but I will measure once I’m home.

Q:can you use this gate on carpet?
A:Yes, the gate isn’t directly on the ground so there is plenty of clearance – even for thicker/more plush carpets.

Q:how long is the shipping time?

A:Dear Wantyang,Thank you for your attention here.We usually arrange the dispatch for the order within 24 hours after receiving the payment for it. And shipping usually takes 3-5 days if everything goes well on the way.…

I know this doesn’t exactly answer your question, but you can just set it down so that it is square on the floor since they all adjust. That is what I have done for now (my little one is only 7mo). Some people have bought hardware themselves such as a long price of metal to attach to every other connection to keep them straight. I may do the same if need be once my little guy gets bigger and can move it more. Not sure if there are set pieces you can buy additionally for it or not.

Q:I thought I once saw this playpen on Amazon with the option of purchasing the foam tiles to fit this particular unit? Anyone?
A:In my looking, I never found a fitted padded floor for this playpen.

Q:Can you use it outside?
A:Yes! I used mine for the outside as well as inside it’s perfect

check-price-on-amazon

Q:Where can you buy extra panels from?
A:I think I bought them from Amazon. I bought 2 panels but you only need one. The baby likes to take the numbers and letters out so it is a job for Mom to put them back when he is sleeping.

Q:The product description says this is for children 4+, Have you used this for younger children? I have an 8-month old crawler.
A:Yes…we did. Our baby was almost 1,He could hardly move…kind of chubby. But love it….give them couple of toys annd they wont eben notice…its nig enough.

Q:Does anyone know what type of plastic this is made of?
A:The best way to describe it is sort of like the heavy plastic little tykes uses.

Q:If we wanted it smaller at first could we make a circle with just 6 panels?
A:Yes, you can use as few panels as you want (as long as they connect). We have almost never used all of the panels.

Q:Can I order extra panels

A:Yes but to receive more thorough info about it, contact the manufacturer–Best Choice Products. The yard is very useful. Yet, it has imperfections, as everything else, such as the joint junctions for the panel set-up; in this sense the illustrated pic is somewhat misleading.

I measured the pad I bought separate and it measures approximagely 73″ x 73/34″. My grandson is already a year old so we took the playpen apart and the pieces make great gates and gives him more access to 2 rooms. We shut the other doors so Mama can watch him more closely. The pad is also a great accessary as it has blocks of ABC’s and Numbers from 1-10. So far he likes to remove the blocks but eventually will learn his abc’s and numbers as he takes the blocks apart. Needs to talk first. This is a good buy in my opinion. Grandma Shirley S.

Q:how big
A:Each panel is about 3 feet.

Q:Can two of them be added together to make more room ??
A:Absolutely! You can make it as big as you want.

Q:can i use it for twin girls?
A:Sure . There is more then enough room . My babies daddy layed down in there playing with her and fell asleep. It’s really easy to just slide together. And you can take out a panel or 2 if it’s too big for the space you are wanting to put it. 🙂

Q:Is it big enough for multiple babies?

A:Yes it is big enough. I use it for my daycare and I have each end hooked to a wall. My older kids nap inside the fenced in area and I can get 5 of them on mats in there. The only problem I have had is there are little suction cups on the bottom of the panels and it now can be scooted around, which isn’t a huge deal. Th…

The only problem I have had is there are little suction cups on the bottom of the panels and it now can be scooted around, which isn’t a huge deal. The other issue I had was with the gate. It did break after a little while. My husband did mange to fix it and it is now working fine. I did have one child that would ram into the fence and broke one panel. All in all I do like it – it is nice that it doesn’t collapse all the way down like some of them do. They weren’t as sturdy. Hope this helps answer your question.

Q:Does this piece collapse for easy and compact storage?

It doesn’t really “fold up” – you have to take the panels completely apart. If you have enough storage space, you could bend it flat t…

If you have enough storage space, you could bend it flat to be 4 panels in front and 4 panels in back, but that’s pretty long!

Q:It is easy to fold up and store away on a daily basis? How do you fold it up?
A:It snaps together and pulls apart very easily. Each section can be stacked on top of the others and put behind or under the couch or bed.

Q:Can I purchase the replace suction foot only?
A:I had the Same problem home depot had what I needed to fix it.

Q:Can this be used as a straight gate instead of the octagon shape? And will I be able to add more pieces to this if I purchase 2 so it can be long?

A:Yes to both questions. It seems to small for any adventurous kid so we actually use use it along the wall to keep our toddler in the living room. If your anything like us you’ll most likely find the gate the most important part of the whole thing. I also like the colors cause it makes our living room look more like a k…

Q:can you make it into one big long barrier? how long would that be?if yes can i fix it to the wall ? both sides?
A:they connect together kindof like a watch. I am not sure how you would be able to connect them to a wall since they are just made of hollow strong plastic. You need a metal gate for that, they have those at TRUs with locking doors.

Q:can you make it into one big long barrier? how long would that be?
A:Yes you can. It would be about 20 feet long.

Q:how does it work on wood floors?
A:I haven’t tried it on wood floors. If I remember correctly, I think it came with suctions or something to keep it in place on wood floors. Otherwise I imagine it might slide if your child is big enough to push it.

Q:Has anyone tried a 3×1 configuration, i.e. 1 piece on each end and 3 pieces on each side?
A:No, but i’d imagine it would be very narrow.

Q:Do you sell replacement stickers as an individual item?
A:I’m sorry I’m not a seller. Why did you think otherwise I own two though

Q:how much area does it enclose square footage
A:Its pretty big…give at least a 5×8 area

check-price-on-amazon

Q:Anyone have any issues with the suction cups not sticking? Any tips to keep it in place?
A:Suction cups on the bottom? Ours is on carpeting so not exactly sticking. We can slide it into different locations but granddaughter can’t move it and she runs into all sides all the time like bumper cars and no movement. I never expected them to stick.

Q:Can this work on carpet if we use it around an L shaped couch instead of an enclosed square/octagon?

A:Yes, that’s what my husband and I did at our last place and it worked really well, never moved (and our baby is strong). My husband called the l-shaped couch enclosure the “megafortress”, compared to the normal, 8 panel enclosed “minifortress”, lol. At our new place, we have wood linoleum and my son just pushes it ar…

Q:Is it JMPA certified?
A:Not sure if it is but would recommend going to the manufacturers website to see if they indicate that is is. It’s made by Sky Enterprise USA.We’ve been using it for several months, and it’s a great product. Very happy with it.

Q:Dear
Please, weight and dimensions???.
Thanks
A:Fully assembled: 73” in diameter, each panel measures: 31″ W x 23.5″ HI do not know specific weight, but description says “shipped weight is 36 pounds.” This is very easy for me (mom) to assemble and move around by myself when I need to make bigger, smaller, put away, etc.

Q:Is this the same as the Baby Diego? http://amzn.com/B00B49IQPM
A:It appears to be. Mine is distributed by Sky Industries, I believe. Mine was less expensive ($125??) and included shipping. LOVE it.

Q:Where can you buy additional pieces?
A:I bought foam mats from Babies R Us. However, I didn’t need additional panel pieces, because the pen takes up so much room.

Q:what is the package dimensions when shipped and how heavy are they when shipping?

A:I don’t remember the dimensions of the packaging. There are 8 panels measuring 31″ W x 23.5″. It shipped FedEx and arrived more quickly than expected! The driver was accommodating to bring inside the house. I’d say it was large and heavy. My daughter-in-law wrestled with it, unpacked it and put it together. If yo…

Q:Purchased this second hand and would like to know how to buy a replacement gate as this one is broken. So far haven’t had any luck on where to purchase.
A:Hey There, Just go to Amazon..there is replacement gates for the Playpen….just find the playpen..and there should be gates sold seperatly right there..it is easy to find, once you find the correct play pen you bought.

Q:Can this be arranged into a square with 2 panels on each side as shown in the second picture? Some reviews said no?
A:Yes

Q:I have a very active 12 month old that loves to shake or climb on objects. Will this play pen tip or can toddlers easily climb over it?

A:I can only answer for carpet, not hard flooring (where the suction cups would come into play), but yes it will move around. The hard plastic slides on carpet easily if the suction cups break off or are not installed. I’m not sure about climbing over it, it’s tall even for a large 12 month old. However, if you have a cl…
