How to Contain the Kids and the Dogs! @Dreambaby #Dreambaby


With three kids and two dogs, we have a pretty full house! With this many bodies in one house, we definitely have to try to contain some of them, especially the toddler and the dogs!

My toddler Jax is at the exploratory age where he wants to touch everything, including things that are off limits because we don’t want him to break them and/or we don’t want him to get hurt!

There is one area in the house he just can’t keep his hands off of and it’s just not worth the constant battle. Making this area off limits was the best way to keep him safe and us sane! Our tv and fireplace are located right next to each other so we were able to kill two birds with one stone so to speak.

I have seen different variations of play-pens but before now, nothing has appealed to me like the Brooklyn Converta!


This one is actually attractive to look at and I didn’t know that was possible with baby gear! It has mesh panels that you can see through that add a certain decorative aspect to it.


When I put it up in front of my TV and fireplace, I actually liked the way it looked!


In addition to keeping the toddler out of certain areas, sometimes I need to contain my dogs. They bark at strangers so I have to lock them up when anyone comes over. This is when I convert to the play-pen area.


Since it also collapses and folds to a manageable size, I can also take it camping to keep the dogs with us but locked up.


There is a wide gate in the middle of it that also makes it ideal for easy entry as well as using as a long gate. I have a really wide doorway from our family room to the rest of the house so sometimes I put this in front of it and just use it as a giant gate to keep the dogs in the same room as me.


The gate has the double locking feature where you have to pull the top as well as lift up at the same time which makes it harder for the kids to escape!


Since I have multiple uses for it, I haven’t attached this permanently anywhere but it does come with the hardware and extensions to do so if you want to attach it to a wall in a set area. Once my toddler gets a little older I may do this just to contain the dogs. For now I like having the option of moving it around to suit my needs.


Whether it’s a child, a dog, or both that you need to contain, this Brooklyn Converta Play-Pen is an attractive way to safely provide a barrier wherever you may need it.
