Puppy Playpen or Autistic Hide-A-Way
You can probably guess by the title I didn’t get this for a puppy, I pick this up for my autistic daughter who insists on sleeping between her bed and the wall. I figured if it was sturdy enough to handle a puppy or 2 than it could handle one very active 8 year old little girl. And it can!
My daughter LOVES her little hide-a-way! During the day she roller skates through the house and jumps on her 6 foot indoor trampoline none stop – but at night she likes to take her old iThing and snuggle into small cramped places.
The playpen is perfect. I can easily put her blankets and pillows in from the top. She can crawl in from the side and there is enough room for me to crawl in for a little snuggle time before she goes to sleep.
During the day, it’s a fort. If we take off the top, put chairs beside it and drape a blanket over the top of the chairs it’s a castle. The best part is, if we want to go for an overnight visit, it all packs up into it’s case and off we go.
If you do have a puppy, the doors zipper closed, of course we don’t do that with our daughter. However, she’s zippered herself in a few times, but she can also get herself out.
The top and bottom zipper off – which is WONDERFUL because if anything spills while the girls are having a tea party in the playpen it won’t soak through to my floors. I suppose if you have a puppy and said puppy has an accident you don’t have to worry about your floors – Bonus!
This is one of the best purchases I’ve ever made. It’s perfect for a hang-out, hide-out, sleeping hide-a-way, and I suppose a puppy pen. Product provided for review courtesy of sponsor.
