Best Playpen For Twins

If you grew up in the ‘90s like me, you grew up watching Rugrats and think to yourself, wow! That confined space is great (Even though Tommy Pickles somehow always got out)! Playpens are a parent’s solution to create a safe environment for their baby while containing them in a singular spot. While supervision is still required, you can do some chores while your twins joyfully play in their own space. Playpens are also great for outside! Whether it’s the beach or your own backyard, there is a perfect playpen for your twins.

There are so many options, so what is the best playpen for twins?

HARPPA Baby Gate Playpen ($$)

Design your ideal play space with the HARPPa playpen. Its customizable design makes it versatile for any size space! This playpen is lightweight and comes with two bassinets, a carry bag, and wheels. The bassinet portion has a weight limit of 15 lbs. per bassinet, but the playard has no weight limit, so you will be able to use it for as long as you see fit.

It’s very easy to set up and it’s just the right size. Bigger than your typical playpen but not so large that it takes up your whole room. Plus, the wood makes it a little bit more stylish, since it might become the focal point of your living space!


The HARPPA Baby Gate Playpen does have potential size limitations especially for older or more active children. Due to the wood design and size of this playpen the assembly is more challenging than other playpens.

Pop ‘N Go Playpen ($)

Adventure awaits with this portable indoor and outdoor playpen. It’s lightweight, bug-free, and features UV protection. It also has a fun pop-up design and travel bag, perfect for playtime on the go.

Easy to assemble and break down. Very compact and comes with a UV shade cover to use when outdoors.


The bottom of the playpen is flimsy (a playmat can be purchased separately). It is harder to pop open than it seems.

Joovy Room2 ($$)

The Joovy Room2 features over 10 square feet of space, making it one of the largest playpens available. It’s an excellent option for keeping your twinnies entertained and contained.

This playpen is large and spacious, with plenty of room for two babies. It meets or exceeds safety standards, providing a secure environment for your child to play in. The Room2 has mesh sides, giving it a 360-degree view, so you can always see your babies, and they can always see you. It includes a removable and machine-washable fitted sheet for extra comfort.


Initial assembly of the playpen can be challenging. Due to its size and durability, the Joovy Room2 can be heavy and difficult to move around, especially when folded. Plus, it is a higher price point than some other playpens.

It is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, is easy to set up, and does not require any tools. Plus, it is easy to clean, with smooth surfaces that can be wiped down with a damp cloth.


While versatile, the play space may not provide enough room for older or more active children to play comfortably. The Evenflo Play Space is lower than some other playpens, which could be a concern for parents of taller children.

Baby Trend Lil’ Snooze Deluxe III for Twins Playard ($$)

The Baby Trend Lil’ Snooze Deluxe III features two removable bassinets with canopies and a large storage basket for baby essentials. The playard itself offers a spacious play area for when your babies outgrow the bassinets.

This playard includes two removable full bassinets that allow it to convert to a full-size playard, a flip-over changing table, and a deluxe parent organizer to hold all of the essentials.


While spacious, the playard may be too large for some living spaces. Bottom is not removable, so must be spot cleaned.
