What is the difference between a baby playpen and a game playpen?

There are some differences in design and purpose between baby playpens and game playpens, here are some of the differences between them:

Age range: Playpens are primarily designed for smaller babies and toddlers, usually from birth to about 2-3 years old. They are designed to provide a safe sleeping environment or limit the baby's range of motion. While children's game playpens are generally suitable for older children, which may range in age from toddlers to preschoolers, and provide a safe area for play and activities.

Function and design: The main function of a baby playpen is to protect the safety of the baby and prevent it from coming into contact with dangerous areas or objects. They usually have a fixed structure and can be used as a bed rail or to restrict the baby's movement to a specific area. The design of children's game playpens pays more attention to children's entertainment and game experience. They may have more play elements, such as toy panels, activity boards, musical instruments, etc., to promote children's exploration and interaction.

Size and shape: Playpens are typically smaller and fit into an infant’s sleeping area or home space. Their shape is usually rectangular or square to suit different space layouts. Children's game playpens are usually larger, providing more space for play and activities. They can be rectangular, hexagonal or other non-traditional shapes to increase children's play and activity space.

Safety Requirements: Since children's game playpens may involve more active children's activities, their safety requirements may be higher. Children's playpens should be designed with children's jumping, climbing and mobility abilities in mind to ensure the fence is stable, has no sharp edges or protrusions, and has appropriate safety measures in place to prevent injuries to children.

Despite these differences, the goal of both playpens and playpens is to provide a safe environment that meets the needs of infants and children. When choosing a fence, consider the age, use and safety requirements of the child to ensure you choose the right type of fence.
