Cribs-playpens and play arenas
By appointment, the arenas are divided into two categories: playgrounds and cots-playpen. The role of the coating material can be a cloth or an oilcloth. What to choose, you decide. At first glance, the oilcloth is more practical, as it is easy to wash, but do not forget that small children pull everything in their mouth, and in this case the fabric will be safer. It is necessary to take into account the quality of the materials used to make the arena.
Do not risk the health of the child, do not pursue cheapness. Buy only quality children's products from reliable manufacturers.
The arenas are square, rectangular and angular. They are also subdivided into oilcloth, wood, mesh. The more spacious the arena, the more comfortable it is for the baby. Many children dislike this subject precisely because of its tightness. Later, they may show a dislike for the restriction of freedom and a closed space.
