These are not your grandmother's playpens
Baby play yards are more than just playpens. They are virtual command centers for the care and entertainment of your young child. The premium play yard lines are loaded with features such as music players and full-sized bassinets, and many are designed for lightweight portability both within and outside the home.
If you have not shopped for a baby play yard before, you may find the term a little confusing. It is often used interchangeably with a play pen; in addition, there are hexagonal play spaces made from interlocking panels that are also known as play yards. But in general, a play yard - or playard as it is commonly shortened - is a playpen with enhanced portability, more and better features, and a design that consists of a foldable metal frame and mesh sides.
As you shop for playards these safety, size, and feature tips will help you find the type that is best for you and your infant.
