Here’s what our parents thought, read their review here...

How did this product make your life easier?

Jasmine Abbott says: "The product is fantastic. It’s very large so it means my toddler can play inside it safely with a lot of her toys in there as well. This is a handy place for me to store her toys as well so it means that at the end of the day everything is going back into one place rather than various toy boxes and bags. Because it’s spacious and secure I can shit her in there whilst she’s happily playing if I need to nip out of the room quickly to get her a drink etc. Whilst in there, the dog and her are kept separate although I don’t obviously rely on this but it’s an extra barrier between them whilst she is playing. The soft mats mean she’s safe for small trips and falls so gives me peace of mind."

Bonnie Badham says: "I absolutely love the All Stars DUO Playpens. I have had loads of use out of it keeping my youngest safe from my 3 year old. Easy to put together and folds nicely if not in use. Can change the size of the playpen and shape. Comes in some lovely colours mine is grey and really lovely.would be totally worth the money. Highly recommended."

Emma Britnell says: "It helps reassure me that my little one is safe and secure if I need to pop to the loo or put the washing out. Now that she’s crawling and moving around, it’s really reassuring that this playpen is sturdy and safe, well built whilst also helping to keep her occupied through the addition of the engaging activity area and balls."

Would you recommend this product to other parents?

Katie Britton says: "I would recommend the product mainly for the safety aspect of things has a lot of my friends are single parents so don’t have partners to watch the children while they get on with the housework and other things also how durable it is meaning you can use outside for smaller children and I love the it has learning toys so older children can learn has they play the only downside to that is the stickers my oldest managed to pull slot of the stickers of with supervision but that just my experience may not be the same for others I would also recommend this product just because I think it’s brilliant you get everything included like the foam mats play balls and because you can make it to what ever size and shape you want also acts has a toy area for my children has we live in a small flat and they don’t have a toy room so it also comes in various colours so can be neutral or for boys or girls."

Helen Bullivent Coxon says: "The versatility of this product is great, but it is also well made- no jagged corners or gaps fingers could be trapped in, high enough so as a baby can’t escape ( although my 3 year old could), so I was happy to leave my daughter in it. Even when her big sister broke the sides to evict the baby there was no disruption to stability."

Would you choose this product above all others on the market?

Jasmine Abbott says: "Yes, the durability of this product makes it a quality buy. It will last from baby stage, great for new crawlers or tummy time. Great for toddlers too so you definitely get your money’s worth. It’s easy to assemble, replace or add parts as needed. Easy to keep clean. Fun for little ones and creates their own space. I’ve not seen anything like this on the market, most playpens are a lot smaller or aren’t as well put together as in flimsy."

Bonnie Badham says: "I absolutely love the All Stars DUO Playpens. I have had loads of use out of it keeping my youngest safe from my 3 year old. Easy to put together and folds nicely if not in use. Can change the size of the playpen and shape. Comes in some lovely colours mine is grey and really lovely.would be totally worth the money. Highly recommended."

Emma Britnell says: "I really liked this playpen as it’s an attractive design and feels sturdy and secure which reassured me that it’s safe for my little one to use. I like that you change the number of panels that you use which gives you the flexibility to make the playpen suit the space you have available. It was easy to assemble (and I assume take apart if needed), easy to keep clean and the addition of the balls, colourful stickers, clock face etc help to entertain little ones rather than it just being a holding area."

What changes would you make to this product?

Katie Britton say: "If I could change 1 thing it would be the parent lock it’s very stiff and when You have the gate open there is quite a gap that my girl have caught her fingers in on more then 1 occasion and rather then stickers if it could be printed on has my children manage to pull of the stickers other then that there’s nothing that I would personally change your already getting more then your moneys worth."

Helen Bullivent Coxon says: "The product comes with a mat that is not as versatile as the pen, coming in 9 squares, where as the pen is 2 by 2. So if the pen is made smaller there is no way to fit the mat into it. We have just used the pen without it and one could argue that the mat isn’t actually necessary. Same could be said of the plastic balls."

Jasmine Abbott says: "There are stickers that come with this product that you stick on yourself including numbers for a clock face. The stickers do not stick very well. They are colourful and a great design but I am regularly having to stick them back in place. Unfortunately a couple of them have stuck to each other and ironically cannot be unstuck but the adhesive doesn’t seem to bind well to the plastic."
