The Cosco Fun sport Play Yard offers a convenient and portable way to entertain your baby at home or while traveling. The play yard has 4 mesh sides, a padded floor and has wheels on one end for ease in maneuverability. The play yard comes with a carry bag to help make transporting it simple.
We accidentally left our Graco pack 'n play at a hotel during a trip, so we needed another play pen quickly. This model was the cheapest at a local store so I bought it, since we didn't need the bassinet feature since our daughter is over a year old and uses the play pen for napping. It was incredibly easy to set up, and I'm not sure what the previous reviewer is talking about, because my model has 4 velcro tabs to strap the base pad in, and they are all right on the very edges. It's actually nicer than the higher end, more expensive Graco, which only had 2 velcro tabs and they were a good 4 inches from the edges, making it difficult to get a snug, secure fit with the velcro. I am much happier with this Cosco version, in regards to the velcro tabs for the base pad. Now, if you are buying this to use with a newborn, you'll probably want to go with a model that has the bassinet, but if you need a plain, no frills play pen for a little older baby, you can't beat this for the money. (It was also cheaper in store than online.)

I believe this is the same play yard we purchased from WalMart, just a different pattern. We purchased the Jungle Harmony pattern, which can be seen at walmart.com.
I purchased this for my 10-month old son to replace what we had used for our daughter. At first, it met my expectations exactly. However, thankfully we have a video monitor that my husband was able to watch my son playing in this play yard. My son had maneuvered his way underneath the floor pad, up to his neck. Because the bottom is simply a piece of cloth, he could not get a grip to crawl back on top of the floor pad. He was not in distress or upset, but also was not that way for even a minute before my husband saw him & pulled him out. This does have velcro straps to hold the floor pad down, but on one side the strap is not at the edge of the play yard (which is what keeps him from being able to do this on our old pack & play). I would not recommend this to anyone as I see it as a huge safety concern!
