How did you cut the cardboard, i've tried several time but failed - every time. Did you use scissors or something else? Because when i do it, its all wonky, different lengths, i was looking at the playpens with the bars - but yep they climb out and its pointless so this is much better!

I used big, kitchen scissors (i guess the bigger the better). I cut it at the edges, where it was naturally folded, and even there it was rather hard. I really advice giving it a try with some big strong scissors, and using lots of force, maybe someone to help you? This is really a good playpen so good luck!

Thanks Mel (and Souffle) this was from before I was even a member, so thanks!! It certainly a really good idea, safe floor time has always been a bit of an issue for me and my hams!! (noone mention the dishwasher incident!) A very good idea indeed!

Brillliant! I had a cardboard box one but it was too springy to fold up; this is much better cos it comes apart! I love love love it! Christmas present for Mr P I think

I had to make mine from cardboard as I couldn't find the plastic at a reasonable price. It's good for a temporary playpen but it got chewed after a couple of months. :/
