      I had one of these octagon play yards. It was wonderful. After I bought it and realized how wonderful it was, I wished I had bought one sooner!

      It's weird, when I was a baby, I was never in a play pen, and I have no photos of me in one. My grandparents worked miracles somehow...must asked how they managed without one! Heh! But this is very good and so well researched, Maita. This is terrific! Moms would be delighted with this! :)

      Great selection, Maita. Play yards are an absolute necessity, especially when they're just learning to crawl or walk. Nicely done.

      Good morning, Maita. It's been so long I never met you. I am glad to read this hub. I agree with you, the babies need this stuff. Thanks for share with us. ~prasetio

      Yes I agree that play yards or play pens are very practical and safe for both parents and children. We call them play pens over here.

      And like you mention in this hub the parent also needs time out from the small toddler to get some work done. Or indeed relax for a few minutes safe in the knowledge that the child is safe and happy in their play yards or play pens.

      Great selection of play yards/play pens, Maita. One of the funniest cartoons I ever saw featured a weary mother sitting inside a play pen safe from the baby crawling around outside the pen.

      Not a practical idea, of course, but really funny.
