Safe play zone for baby

At 8+ months, little Ayra was crawling fast and furious around the house and reaching out for support to lift herself to standing position. As there are many electrical stuff within easy reach in the living area, we had to constantly follow behind her when she crawls. Few occasions where she was faster than we can react and she pulled the hi-fi set off the shelve, situation might be worsen if it had hit her toes or feet when it fell. We needed a safe play zone for the growing baby.

Deciding between a playpen vs a playard

We are the generation who grew up in playpens. But the playpen only allows baby to be inside and not the adults. When the little one outgrows the size, the playpen will be a white elephant.

I first saw a playard from a friend's instagram; with few clicks from google search, I found the exact same one on Babytown online store. After reading few more reviews from other mummy's blogs, I decided this was what we need at home.

The size of the standard set of Haenim Playard is just nice for Ayra for now. When she grows bigger and need more space, we can buy additional panels to expand the playard. Ayra loves it! She plays in it everyday and learned to walk while holding on to the playard. With the playmat as base, we feel much comfortable with her in it and won't rush to check on her when she falls on her butt.

Playard also helps contain her toys within the play area and keeps the house neat. She'll pull everything out from her toy basket and cover the entire mat with them.

The playard makes good frames for photo taking too! :P

This is one of the purchase that I felt was money well spent.

Haenim Playard is available from and they sell playmats too.
