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
Love that its big for bubs to crawl explore safely but did have one connection at top break clearly faulty as its a very sturdy part of playpen. Rang customer service first and ladie was very rude. Poor customer service no intent to help. Have to go back in-store to oganise $12 part under warranty.....
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
Great for our grandson
We bought the VEebee six sided playpen for when our grandson visits, which is quite often. We have used the mat on its own when he was rolling and we were sitting outside, it was large and nicely padded and made us comfortable that he was a on a clean safe spot.
We now use it when we need to put him in a safe space if we are in the kitchen for instance. He can comfortably play in it and if he falls over he had not hurt himself. Big enough to store his toys etc when he leaves. Love the bright red colours. Mat is fairly easy to wipe down. He has however pulled off the velcro when he is outside the playpen, but when he is inside it, all good.
The size of this playpen is the big winner! My baby has plenty of room to crawl around and pulls herself up to cruise along the sides as well. It is easy to put together and I managed to pick it up 2nd hand, saving me a small fortune! There is no gate, but if you're tall, it's easy enough to step in and out of. This playpen only loses points from me for not being able to take off the panels to wash them, being material, this would have been very handy. Also it would have been great if the joins could go completely straight, allowing you to make the playpen a rectangle shape, using all 6 panels, if desired.
Does exactly what we want.
This playpen is large, sturdy and does exactly what we want. We often have friends with their babies come over & we can fit lots of babies in here with no fuss at all.
The number one reason we bought this playpen is because it feels very safe.
I do not mind that there is no gate as there is no way to get out unless you climb over. I feel safe leaving my child to play in here compared to other playpens.
My only suggestion would be for the floor mat to be more cushioned as we have had to put foam tiles underneath as the mat doesn't provide eno...
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.
