Monday Review: North States Superyard Play Yard

I was not paid to endorse this product, these words are my own. Affiliate links used.
This product has been a huge help to me since Nathan became mobile. He has always been big for his age (I believe still above the 90th percentile in height and weight) and regular play yards/travel cribs did not provide enough room for him to move at all. Ever since I purchased this superyard baby jail (I say this with love, of course) I have been able to keep up with the household chores! Usually. You know how it goes.

This product is durable, convenient, affordably priced, and comes in both color and plain white. You can even purchase extra extensions to give your child even more room as he grows!

Durability: The superyard gates are made out of a fairly hard and very durable plastic. This plastic is just flexible enough that if you happen to trip over it (if you're like me, you will do this more than once) it will bend the tiniest bit instead of crashing down with you.

Convenience: The gates are attached with pieces that allow you to adjust the angle between each one almost 360 degrees. This is helpful for transport because it folds right up and you can carry it with a little handle. Also, everyone's housing situation is different. Depending on the square footage, furniture, heating vents, any any other number of variables; you  will need flexibility in how you set up this thing. It even comes with a little pamphlet that warns of the only shapes you should avoid because of risk of tipping the fence over.

Affordability: Depending on where you buy this, the price will vary a little bit. Amazon, as you may know, will update your cart if you have items in it that change price. BabiesRUs has this product listed for around $80 for the colorful 6-piece set, while on Amazon right now the 8-piece set is around $111. So, per piece, this is within $0.50. Negligible. Unless you go to BabiesRUs, and get one of those 20% off any product (except the 20 or so listed in the fine print) coupons with your receipt. You can use it on this baby gate.

Other: This gate is pretty tall - 26 inches high. This has given Nathan lots of practice pulling himself up to stand, and walking side to side. You can hang toys from any area on the fence, and it even comes with rubber grippies for the bottom to hold it in place.
