The best thing I’ve bought
Couldn’t have been any happier buying this, I love the look of it, it makes everything look so joyful and colourful, it’s also helped me keep all my sons toys in the same spot! And extra comfy, he sits there for hours playing with his toys, well worth the money and I’ll be keeping it for the future, also easy to assemble
Great for our son!
We found this great for our son. It was very easy to set up. We have found the size is perfect and allows lots of play room to crawl around and to still have his toys in there to play with. We wish we got it sooner rather then later
Fantastic! 9 month old baby plays happily in here.
We brought the six sided play pen for our baby and it's been great. So quick and easy to erect and folds up to a very small size so that we can take it everywhere.
We took this on our holiday on a houseboat and it was fantastic, worth every cent. I only wish i had brought it earlier but we were umming and arring about the expense of it and whether it would be worth it but i can honestly say this has been the best buy.
It comes with a soft mat which we use because i have it on timber floorboards. It provides some padding when she falls and th...
We bought the 6 sided Valco VeeBee playpen and have never looked back.
I don't feel bad putting my son in there at times with some toys when I need to cook dinner for example as it's such a good size. He has plenty of room to crawl around and explore and play with his toys and be entertained. He now loves holding on the sides and cruising around, he thinks that he's very clever doing so :-)
The sides are mesh so when my son was younger and would stumble, he wouldn't hurt himself in anyway, unlike the wooden ones or his cot.
I honestly...can't fault it in anyway, we just love it!!! Also a little tip - we don't use the floor mat inside the playpen as we have carpet, instead we take it with us when we go to a park and use it there instead and place his toys in the middle and he plays happily on his mat, and mum and dad sit on there too and we can all enjoy a picnic! 6 sided playpen is the perfect size, soft mesh see through sides make it nice and safe
6 side is awesome !
great for 2 bubbas to play in! lots of space for toys and babies and the mest doesnt make it feel enclosed.. nice and soft and the attached playmat is grea! we used it for 18months and it still looked like new! highly reccomended.. and easy to set up and transport too
nice size.. soft and sturdy
Fundamental with twins!!!! Could not have done without it!
It's light and easy to put together and it was great peace of mind for us specially having twins in the house.
I also believe it has provided my boys a safe area which gave them enough confidence to start walking VERY early. I am a big fan of this product and have recommended to all friends
We used for a long time and couldn't have done it without it!
Some people think that playpens only limit babies exploration space but my experience with this one was exactly the opposite, it is massive space and I filled the playpen with things for them...
Couldn't live with out
My mother bought this for us when our daughter was 10 months old. I needed somewhere safe to put her while I packed the house while we were moving to our new farm.
We have the six sided playpen. It's fantastic. I regulary use it while I do jobs around the house. My daughter is not a climber , she is nearly 23 months now and I still use it .
It is quick to errect and easy to pull apart & store. I didn't use the floor mat. I found it easy to just vacume my carpet instead of spot cleaning the floor mat.
Reliable , safe
Love Love Love this!!
The 6 sided keeps my 1 year old son happy and safe. Plenty of room to crawl around and his toys are no longer taking over the house! It does take up a lot of my lounge room but it dismantles really easliy and we drop it down to a 4 sided when we have guests. Fantastic product.
Keeps the house neat, baby is safe.
When our baby starts moving about, I went on the internet to search for a playpen. This is just what I am looking for. I am not a big fan of the wooden and plastic playpens. I was looking for one with a good size, so there is plenty room for our baby to move and play with other babies in our house. It put my mind at rest when I need to walk away for a short time to know the baby will be safe in the playpen.
Good size for the baby to move about in the playpen, like the mat underneaths for hard floorboards at home
When baby start pulling herself up, the mesh does get a bit slippery when she pushes it to try to stand. I wish the mat can be a bit more thicker, so when baby falls it does not hurt much.
Our bub is just starting to get mobile and we bought the 6 sided version. It is worth the money and if you shop around online you may still get in under $210. The 6 sided one can be set up with just four sides if you are going out somewhere with more limited space, it just means you have to be a bit creative to attach the included playmat to the playpen, but it can be done. Meanwhile the 6 sided area is great outside, for more than one child or if an adult wants to sit in the enclosed area and play with the child for a while. The fact that ther...e are no hard bits (uncovered) that little heads can bump on is great and it is easy to watch them, they can see you and it's cool and well ventilated. A bit pricey but worth it. Lightweight, easy to assemble, portable, safe, softsided, well ventilated, bright and colourful. Typical Valco intructions included, they are next to useless.
I bought this playpen for my twins when they were about 7 months old. They had so many toys and I didn't want them all cluttering up the house, so we bought a playpen. So happy with the 6 sided playpen, so much room and I can easily fit both my babies, and their toys inside.
Mesh sides, comfortable play mat, size.
We chose this playpen for its size for our mobile 6 month old who has started to commando crawl with speed. We were pleasantly surprised with the ease of setting it up. The base is lightly padded which is great for baby. Although attached to the frame with velcro, it appears secure and we have not had any problems to date with it detaching. The playpen provides ample space for both baby and toys.Importantly our baby appears to be happy playing in it. For us it has been worth the money (most playpens are not cheap).
Big play area but also the ability to reduce the size if needed, very easy to assemble, sturdy, looks good (red and black colour combination), lightweight
We bought this a few days ago since our little one is learning how to crawl. We have had people tell us that buying this wouldn't be worth it as they wont stay inside. We also had a debate about this and the much cheaper wooden one which came with no play mat. Undoubtedly its definitely this one.
When hes trying to sit he falls over many times. And though our floor is carpeted the extra padding helps alot - that and he seems to like it as well.
He has a habit of moving his body backward and forward and if there were wooden bars his head would...
I couldn't fault this product and was very happy to buy this one instead of the wooden/metal playards. My son never injured himself in this although I have seen him knock himself quite badly on wooden playpens. My son is also a woodchuck and has chewed his wooden cot right into the woodfuzz but he is unable to penetrate the covered rails of the valco vee bee.
It is the perfect size with 6 sides, not too huge and definitely not too small. It is also easy to clean with a damp cloth.
I would recommend this to people as an easy early alternative...
So far so good...
We bought the 6 sided playpen after reading reviews on this Site and I must say so far so good...! It is on the expensive side but we managed to find ours on sale (I was looking...). It has been worth the money! My bubs isn't yet crawling but he is mobile (rolls & turns around) & I love knowing that once he is in the playpen he is pretty safe & contained. Also all his toys are in one place, so much easier when trying to keep a house semi-clean. The mesh sides enable him to still see me when I'm in the kitchen. It's pretty easy to clean, just a quick vacuum & wipe is all you need to do.
Large, easy to assemble, easy to clean
It is expensive, takes about a large amount of space
