Ease of Use: 4/5
The Funsport playpen opens up in seconds and is truly a delight to use, and I found I didn’t even need instructions to open it. However, folding it back down can be slightly tricky as it has a tendency to get stuck. The playpen is folded via a squeeze latch, which is easy enough to use once you have done it before.
Being smaller than other playpens, such as the Graco Pack N Play, has its advantages, and this playpen really is portable. It is lightweight at around only 19lbs and well equipped for travel. There are two wheels found on one side at the base, for a quick slide around the room. The playpen also folds to become a carry bag, making it perfect for travel.
The playpen is a good size at 40” x 30”, with plenty of room to play. However, the playpen does not include a mattress, and the base is thin and quite hard. In and of itself, it is not suitable for naps but fine for short-term play. The base is also not completely flat, but this is not really noticeable.
Age Range: 4/5
Playpens can generally be used until your child is big enough to climb out. The Cosco Funsport Play Yard is suitable for a child up to 35 inches tall, which is on par with other playpens. For most kids, this will be around 2 years old.
The playpen is very sturdy and is definitely not going anywhere. The mesh walls allow you to keep watch of your child to ensure they are safe. Although the base is hard this adds to the safety aspect. For added safety, the playpen is better used on carpet than hardwood floors or tiles.

The Funyard can be slightly difficult to fold. It is also not the best playpen for sleeping due to the hard and uneven bottom. However, with the addition of a mattress (such as the Dream On Me 3” foam mattress, which fits perfectly) it becomes comfortable for sleeping.
As other Cosco Funsport play yard reviews have pointed out, you will find it tough to find a better value playpen. This playpen is reliable, amazingly affordable and great for travel. For those parents that just need a simple playpen, there really is no doubt that this playpen is suitable for you.
