Information

Having a safe space to place your crawling baby or younger busy toddler when life throws some multi-tasking challenge your way really comes into its own when the home grocery delivery arrives earlier than scheduled. Equally, some days there are just times when you need to sit down and have a moment for yourself. Safetots’ playpens and playdens provide that opportunity to continue being part of your child’s playtime without having to chase them round the home, giving you a chance to recharge your batteries and them a chance to experience independent learning.

 

Our play dens have no integral base. This can be a great feature when using it outdoors for example, allowing your child to explore the grass under their toes or even different textured floor surfaces inside the home too. They are constructed from wooden or metal panels with an opening gate section, and the dens can be expanded using extension panels.

 

All Safetots’ playpens come with an integral base which is one of the criteria for being eligible to be tested under BS 8423:2010, the safety standard for playpens. Furthermore, an integral base means that there is a protective barrier between your child and the floor surface.

Are play dens safe or suitable for young children?

Although play dens can be created as fun and educational areas for young children to develop a sense of independence, at Safetots we would recommend against the overuse of a play den.  There is a fine balance to be found between encouraging a child to discover things on their own and providing the bond and stimulation that only another person can bring to their lives. The purpose of a play den is to provide a safe place where you can put your child for a brief period of time whilst you manage the practicalities of every day life.  

It is essential you make sure the area inside the play den is completely safe before leaving your child. Always remember that toddlers tend to put anything and everything in their mouths. A simple rule to consider is if an object can fit through the centre of a toilet paper roll, it can be a choking hazard for a child under three years of age. Also consider purchasing a choke tester to ensure all areas of your home are safe. Only put 100% safe toys in a play den.
