How it works
The designers at Evenflo have created a playpen for the parent who wants to make sure their child is safe anywhere they go. The Versatile Play Space is a gate system playpen that can be assembled and disassembled and stored in one place. The walls are fence-like, which gives parents the ability to see their child at all times, and the pen can be used indoors or outdoors depending on your needs. You can take it to the park, to family picnics, barbecues, other people’s homes, and playdates. With easy to put together pieces and a rounded design that keeps the pen upright and your baby or toddler safe, the Evenflo Versatile Play Space is a must-have for the parent who is on the go and wants to make sure their child is happy, included, and safe.
The hinges of the gate system are snaps that allow you to quickly and efficiently snap the pieces together quickly so that you can set up the play area however you see fit in a short amount of time. The base set covers an area of about 18.5 square feet, and the sides of the play space are about twenty-eight inches tall. The play area is most sturdy and most effective when constructed in a circular pattern.
The feet of the gates are multi-purposed so that you can use the play area indoors or outdoors, and the holes of the sides are wide enough that you can see your baby clearly no matter where you are standing or what you are doing.
The play space was also designed with durable plastic so that if your child puts their mouths or teeth on to the plastic, it will not come off and they will not ingest any toxins.
The hinges were also designed to be safe for little fingers and little hands, and the designers have made it a point to leave as little room as possible between the pieces so that fingers and hands cannot get caught in the hinges or between pieces. There is absolutely no room for heads to get stuck in between the pieces as well, so parents do not have to worry about turning their backs and their child getting stuck.
Motor Skill Development
Parents have also found that the gate works well for when children are taking their first few steps. Not only does the play space offer a safe and clear area for your child to learn how to walk, but when your child is holding onto the gate, they can then walk side to side while holding onto something, which will enable them to learn how to balance while they are walking, and when they are ready to walk freely from holding onto anything, they will have the space to do so without falling down stairs, or tripping over anything. The sides are durable enough to withstand the weight of your baby,
Other parents take the play area to the park for family picnics or barbecues and it’s a great way to keep their child in a soft grassy area where they can play safely, and if there are dogs or other animals that may jump on the child or knock them over, the gates are a great way to prevent that from happening as your child will be protected. Again, it’s another great way to keep your child out of the way of the sun as you can set up the area in a shady spot where your child will be out of the way of the sun’s harmful rays.
For indoor use, parents set up the play space in an area in the house that becomes the place where they can put all of baby’s toys in the play space and safely let them play and explore their toys and personal area without anyone or anything disturbing them. Babies can learn how to stand and walk all while in the play area. Many parents place their child in their child’s play area so that Mom and Dad can get other things done in the same room while their child is playing. Many parents are able to cook while their child is playing, and Mom and Dad can watch their child through the easy-to-see-through sides and know that their child is safe and not in harm’s way.
The rounded design of the feet also works well with carpeting. The rounded edges fit nicely in carpet and prevent the feet from sliding or moving as your child plays or if anything like a dog or cat jump on or try to get over the sides of the gate.
When using the play area outdoors, the feet of the gate can be clipped out of the hinge and flipped over. When flipped over, the feet become spikes that can then be reclipped into the hinge and you can steak the sides into sand or dirt for when you are at the beach, in the backyard, or in the park. This extra added security really prevents the sides from moving or being knocked down as you will have the sides firmly pressed into the ground. When you remove the spikes from the ground, you will need to rinse them off and clean out any sand or dirt that may collect in them so that when you reassemble the gates in your home, you will not make a mess.
For outdoor use, the gate can be secured into the ground so that you can take your child to the beach or park without worrying that they will wander off or get into an unsafe area, and since the gate folds up tightly and can be transported anywhere, you can always bring it with you when you are on the go.
The Evenflo Versatile Play Space is something that all parents should consider buying so that their child can be safe, have fun, feel comfortable, and you can rest assured that your child is happy.
