What is the CHOICE Expert Rating

CHOICE Expert rating

This is the product's overall performance score, based on key tests conducted by our industry experts in the CHOICE labs.

Good points

• Passes key safety requirements.
• Initial use of a tool to screw the joints to the sections, but reasonably simple to join and rejoin the sections together.
• Multiple configurations.

Bad points

• Minor issues: 1. The gaps between vertical bars of the side sections could cause a minor head entrapment hazard. 2. Too easy for a child to lift.
• Very minor issue: Corner joints that protrude on the inside of the playpen may cause injury when a part of the child's body (such as the head) comes into sudden or speedy contact.

The manufacturer says it has had its playpens tested to the US playpen standard, and that it also does its own additional in-house safety testing.

Products we've recommended have passed all our safety and durability tests. We sometimes find that no products pass all our safety tests, so that we can't recommend any, but usually find some models with only minor failures that are still worth considering.

Ones that score around 60-65% for performance may have minor hazards such as a door that doesn't self-close or edges/projections that could injure if a child runs into them. Serious failures include detachable small parts, snagging/strangulation hazards, clmbing footholds or failure of the limb or head entrapment requirements of both Australian cot and European playpen standards.
