Sharing in the Kmart Decor & Hacks Facebook group, Cheralee writes: ‘I know it supposed to be for pets, it’s brand new and she enjoying playing outside while I hang the washing out.’

For just $32 we agree that it’s a fab idea!

Her post received more than 10,000 likes and thousands of positive comments from group followers.

On their website Kmart says the play pen is 63cm (H) x 60cm (L) and has a Diameter of 1.5m

It can also be secured to the ground when used outdoors and folds flat for easy storage.

It also comes in a smaller version measuring, 58cm x 38cm; Pen – 94cm (Dia.)


Perfect size for little people don’t you think?

  • That would be so handy for camping!


  • Having a floor in it makes it harder for a toddler to push it around too. This is a lot safer than the older style of baby play pen. It also filters the sun rays too, something the older styles never did..


  • I’ve seen this before and it works really well.


  • That looks like a great idea


  • Sounds good – hopefully there aren’t hidden safety issues.


  • Never seen this before but what a fab idea.


  • I actually saw this idea else where and used it as a ‘playpen’ for the beach when my son couldn’t walk. No need to worry about baby eating sand or crawling off. He even slept in there


  • I didn’t even know they had these for pets


  • So much cheaper than a baby’s play pen and they are easy to fold away too


  • Great idea for when you are out places and don’t want them to be confined but also don’t want them picking up cigarette butts etc.


  • Haha! Great idea to keep runaway babies safe!


  • I kind of like it for when babies are small and you need to be outside to hang the washing and it saves getting the pram out or anything else, but as they get older it is good to be in touch with nature, not plastic and vinyl.


  • Great idea. If I’d has one a few years ago, my son wouldn’t have eaten quite so much grass.


  • Good idea. I often used our travel for for this


  • This is such a great idea, and I dont know why more people dont do this!
