How Is The Pop ‘N Go Playpen different from The Pop ‘N Go Pets Playpen?

Recently, we’ve brought on the long-awaited Pop ‘N Go ® Pets Playpen. Whether you’re long-time fans of the California Beach Co. or you’re new to our site, you may be wondering - how do the Pop ‘N Go ® Playpen and the Pop ‘N Go ® Pets Playpen differ?

This is a good question. Obviously, they cater to two very different audiences. However, there are many similarities between them as well. In this article, we’ll address what the varying characteristics of these two play tents are. 

The Pop ‘N Go ® Playpen: The Facts

First up, our classic Pop ‘N Go ® Playpen. When our founders launched this inventive playpen a couple of years ago, they aimed to provide parents with the type of product that they themselves had been looking for. With that said, this Pop ‘N Go play yard values safety first while also providing room for your child to spread out and play. 

The Orange Pop N Go Playpen

The Pop ‘N Go Playpen is made out of extremely durable materials that are both non-toxic and non-hazardous. Mesh netting, aluminum, and fiberglass framing combined with polyester all come together in a 48-inch by 59-inch size to form a fortress that your child will be 100-percent safe in. Worried about the harsh sun? The UV shade cover adds extra protection. Last but not least, it’s safety lock technology will lock the structure in place, ensuring that it won’t collapse on your kiddo. 

All of these characteristics, with the addition of its effortless portability and convenience, have caused this item to win the hearts of many parents and their kids.

The Pop ‘N Go ® Pets Playpen: A Variation for Your Furry Friend

The Pop ‘N Go ® Pets Playpen checks the same boxes as the Pop ‘N Go ® Playpen with a few variations. For one, the same resilient materials are used to form the structure of this miniature hide-away. However, this playpen for pets is less “open” than the original Pop ‘N Go. A mesh window and front can be found in this product, while the previous pen features all-around mesh siding. This decision offers your pet proper ventilation without allowing them to damage their tent or get confused by their surroundings. 

The Pop N Go Pets Playpen

What’s more, the Pop ‘N Go ® Playpen features a fully open-top without its UV shade cover. The pets version is more enclosed at the top. It’s important for your furry friends to feel somewhat enclosed in their space and this element gives it a comfy crate-like feel. They’ll feel safer in their own small playpen shelter. 

Although these two options are similarly lightweight, they’re quite different in size. The Pop ‘N Go ® Pets Playpen is made in a 39-inch by 33-inch size, making it smaller and more compact.

It’s suggested that this dog pen is used for only small or medium-sized pets; whereas, the original pop and go playpen can easily fit a couple of people, including adults.
