A playpen is a place where young children are put so they will stay out of trouble and safe.


Playpens are traditionally made of wood, and consist of a small flat rectangular platform, usually square in shape, with vertical bars on four sides, so that the child can see out but cannot get out. The floor of the play pen is usually a soft mat. The 'walls' of the play pen are usually higher than the height of the child, so as to prevent escape. There are many more modern and portable designs.


The purpose of the play pen is to confine a very small child who might otherwise wander off and hurt themsleves, usually used when the person watching the child is pre-occupied with something and cannot watch the child directly.


Playpen can be used to show that the particular thing is used to do experiments.
