    I have a new granddaughter, and I was doing a little online shopping for a playpen, when I found this.

    Surprisingly, it's listed as a "top seller", although frankly I think it looks more like putting your baby in prison. :p

    I wonder...does it come with optional guard towers? :D

    LOL

    The only reason I'd ever buy that for a child is for when they play cops and robbers.

    Nah. They just throw their sippee cups when they are mad.

    I'd stick my kids in it and shoot them with a squirt gun if they tried to escape.

    You could put up one of these to give them a fighting chance. :D

    LOL! Love the movie!

    I think I might notice if they started tunnelling through the floor with little hammers.

    I think that's the best play pen ever for a kid, especially with all the stupid parents out there. Now you know that your kid will be following the law when they reach their teens because that's all they know, seeing as how they are being raised in a mini state correctional facility. No need for fancy pants "I'm your friend and your parent" parenting that doesn't work. I agree, guard towers would be a great add on to add that sense of "you can't escape the law", which is how it should be. For all of you that object, I highly recommend the leash for your kid.

    (as for the gt-mo reference, I'm sure if you don't like it, France or Canada is accepting immigrants)

    Hey... I was on a child leash growing up. I kept wandering off in public to the point where my parents couldn't stand the trauma anymore. I now remain within a constant 5-10 feet of whomever I am out and about with.... :)

    Wow - I wonder if Wal-Mart also sells an optional guard tower and searchlight setup to accompany it?

    [Edit]: Dammit, that's what I get for just looking at the photo and laughing - recycled humor.

    Whoh there. This started out as a funny little thread. Let's keep things civil and stay off the political rants.

    Although it was civil, fair enough. Sorry to ruin the fun.

    Is this item modular?

    Can you add sq. footage or height? Kids grow fast you know...

    Also, from a kids point of view, these could make great forts - just add some blankets and whatnot - and "Presto".

    And I'm moving to Canada.

    Though I am puzzled as to why the other option was France.

    That's funny, but I actually have one of those!

    Not for keeping my kids inside it though.

    We have it around our wood burning stove in our basement to keep our toddlers from burning themselves. It was the only thing big enough to go around the stove.

    Our kids are pretty good listeners and always supervised but that stove gets hot and even one touch could do serious damage.

    I also used it once when we had a visiting dog at our house who was knocking the kids over so I put a blanket down and put the dog in.

    And I had stripes on my back, memories that hurt
    For the only time I seen sunshine / is when I hit the dirt
    Diggin' ditches for the chain gang, sleepin' in the cold
    Oh Lord please forgive me / for I could not wait no more

    ...

    Well these last few years behind me
    Oh Lord, have been so sad
    I fought proudly for my country / when the times were bad
    Now they say I’m guilty / when they find me I must die
    Only me and Jesus know / that I never stole a dime
