    Summer Infant Pop ‘n Play Portable Playard: Great For The Backyard And The Beach

    Summer Infant Pop ‘n Play Portable Playard

    Caleb is mobile and fast and wild and… an 18 month old boy. So, what do I expect, right? Well, sometimes I need to have him in one place so I can deal with another child and not worry about him running into the street or the ocean or the… well, you get the point. If Bill isn’t around, I need a playard that is easy to set up and lightweight.

    I give you the Summer Infant Pop ‘n Play Portable Playard.

    Amazing folks. Natalie wanted me to draw hopscotch for her but I knew I couldn’t just leave Caleb in the hands of my two kids while in our front yard. I mean… I trust them, but we live on a VERY busy street. One tiny mistake can result in devastating consequences.

    I whipped open my  Summer Infant Pop ‘n Play Portable Playard and popped Caleb inside until I was done. He played ball with Liam and kept himself occupied while I showed off my artistic abilities. We LOVE taking this playard to the beach because it is travel-ready. It literally can be put together and taken down in seconds.

    You can fit several children in the playard at once which means your friends will LOVE YOU! Mind you – I only had Caleb in for a few moments so I didn’t completely set it up with the straps – widening it out like the above photo. But if you look at the shot above, you can see how it should look once you click everything through.

    Beach trips, backyard fun, a way to buy yourself a few extra minutes of time to take care of your other children while knowing your littlest is not going to run off — everyone needs one of these.

    The Summer Infant Pop ‘n Play Portable Playard retails for $79.99.
