It’s finally here! The long-awaited solution to my work-at-home mom dilemma arrived via Fed Ex. Since my baby started to crawl, working from home became a whole new ball game. I could not for the life of me figure out how to contain him without containing him. I wanted a safe place for my son to play for the periods of time I need to be at the computer, and the Pack and Play seemed to shrink before my eyes as my son got older and more mobile.
After many weeks of trying to keep my little crawler from climbing under my desk, stealing my paperwork, and hollering as one in solitary confinement, I finally came across the Little Playzone play yard by Friendly Toys. I purchased it from One Step Ahead, and miracle of miracles, it got here in two days.
If you’ve shopped for play yards, you know they are not cheap. The cheapest I’ve found is the Six Panel Superyard, which I returned about 20 minutes after opening it. It was hard to deal with and wobbly. But the Playzone, while more expensive at about $99, is well worth the extra cash. It’s sturdy, lightweight, colorful, roomy (13 square feet), and contains a gate and a play wall with music, a mirror, and more. I even climbed in it myself last night and played with my son for about an hour! The greatest part is, it took me less than a minute to assemble it out of the box.
I’ve only had the thing for 24 hours now, but I’m already in love with it! Check it out and see what you think. If you’re a WAHM, this thing could very well become indispensable to you as well.
