    I cannot imagine that being a serious option. A child could push on one side and tip it over quite easily I would say. Also, most times the mechanism that folds the playpen is located under the mat, and is usually only a button or pull strap, and should the child pull on it the centre would collapse downward toward them.

    I was being facetious... The OP I quoted was also joking I believe .

    Re: crib question

    In case anyone is interested, it's included here, because federal regulations stipulate that there must be a precautionary statement that a child should be moved to a toddler bed at 35". Not sure when that started though.

    Regardless, thank you for alllll of your help. It's greatly appreciated. Even the humor.

    I thought of that. I wonder if it would be light enough to lift or move and some body part could become trapped.
