I was looking for a simple solution, I needed to find a way to make my 1 year-old happy when we were outside and I had work to do in the garden. I had tried to bring his playpen out, but that resulted in whining and me not being able to get anything done. I then remembered the gate system that my nephews used to play in when they were younger (twins,) and is actually now used for the family puppy for travels, the North States Gates Superyard Xt.
When I first began to research this gate, I was concerned that it would be flimsy and unable to stand up to my tough little boy. I imagined him pulling it down and getting out of the area easily, so when I actually put him in the area I was very pleased to see that the gates were fact it was quite strong and sturdy. All of the panels fold up into one single stack and are held together with a strap for easy carrying/travel, they are a bit on the heavy side though the product description calls them “lightweight.” We went ahead and added two additional gates to increase the square footage which is another great feature, you can add or remove them at any time.
All in all, I think this is a great product that is worth the money. I also wanted to mention that this is a perfect product to pass along once your are done using it. There will always be someone looking for a solution such as this, and it is such a sturdy product that it could surely be passed around to friends or family.
