    Helllooooo

    Would love some input from u gals on here..

    I've Got 3 dogs n my lil girl is 11 weeks tommoz,so we've started to think ahead for when she starts crawling and have been looking at the playpens which turn into a room divider (which is how we would use it) then she could safely learn crawl around without the dogs badgering her :D

    Does anyone have any good recomendations or ones to avoid?

    We bought the lindham hexagonal playpen. It is high enough to stop dog jumping over, comes with a paded base and can be opened up to divide a room. Good gate opening when in play pen mode. only probem is very large! but stores well.

    we have the lindam hexagonal playpen and its a life saver!!!!

    im staying with my parents at the moment and they have 3 huge heavy fat labradors that just want to trample Ben so we shut off the living room for Ben.

    However!!! at my home i also have it but its REALLY hard to fold up etc whereas my parents one just folds up with ease, i think it depends on which model you get (old or new)

    How big are they? I wouldn't mind one once Aisling starts crawling so she has somewhere to go when I'm cooking etc but I'm not sure we'd have room!

    You can make them into a square too, so 1m x 1m
    We have the babydan one, but I think theyre pretty similar.

    I've been looking into getting a playpen, I was going to go for the babydan, but I might get the lindam from these reviews. I think the lindam one is slightly cheaper too, it's 67.49 on amazon/ kiddicare

    Heya, I have a lindan 'travel' playpen, its a bit smaller than the other ones and its fantastic, we use it to corner off a bit of the dining room as a play room for holly so she has her own little area and stops the toys getting all over the living room, its a lifesaver now she mobile as u can pop her in it if u need to go out the room for a sec and you know shes safe. x
