North States Industries Superyard Play Yard, Colorplay, 6 Panel



Q:How many feet in diameter is the 6 panel play yard?


I can’t tell for sure, but I have my 8-panel setup to an hexagon and it fits into 36 SqFt with some room to spare. I estimate the diameter is close to 5 feet. Hope this helps!

Q:I have the 8 panel but I want to add a 6 panel to it. Is this doable?


if it from the same manufacturer I don’t see why not. you have 2 open ends …. let’s say one end is #1 and the other is #2 … when you add an additional gate it would also have 2 open ends … it seems quite feasible. See if any stores sell this product so you can look @it in person or have the sales people try it out and get back to you. Sorry, I don’t have an definite answer but sure does seem plausible.

Q:instead of closing the final panels to create a hexagon, could it be positioning in the corner of a room (and somehow attaching it to the wall?)


Yes. There is a wide range of angle to make any shape. I have mine setup in our family room as a blocker to the TV and fire place. It’s setup as free standing, in a wide M shape if you can picture that. I believe the company does make wall attachments too – do a quick search for that. But you can pivot the panels in any direction and make a rectangle or wider half wall as a room divider. Great stuff. Also – don’t apply the anti-skids until you figure out how the panels connect. There’s a trick to enclosing them all.

Q:where is the door


It can be opened by disconnecting 1 side of any panel.

Q:I would like a six panel for inside and a 8 panel for outside do I have to order eight panel and can two panels be removed if needed


Yes panels can be removed. I think the actual ordering for this you have to order the 6 panels, and then the other 2 panels are an extension pack. Though I actually got through Babies R Us, so ordering may have been different.

Q:Hello, we would like to use it in our living room. Does it mount to the wall? How can I make sure my son can’t bypass this gate?


The panels connect to each other so there isn’t a wall connection attached. For our small dogs, instead of connecting them all together as pictured, we used velcro to attach the end panels to the wall. This would not be strong enough for an active child but maybe a bracket could be used instead.

Q:it says color play but the ones in the photo are ivory???


Hi, I never saw “ivory” ones. I ordered this and got the colored one as shown in the photo. It is quite durable and looks great :)

Q:when I plcae my order, the one in the cart is colored, i want the ivory color. What color did you get in your order?


We wanted the multi colored panels and that’s what we got.

Q:If a panel breaks and needs to be replaced, is the old panel recyclable?


I would assume so, it’s colored plastic.


Q:Can this be used to block staircases?


I wouldn’t think so b/c there is no way to secure it.

Q:Can it be taken apart? For example, I’d like to use 3 of the pieces around our fireplace and 3 of the pieces around our wine rack?


Yes. We do that as well.

Q:Can anyone recommend a good play mat that will fit underneath? Specifically for a baby close to crawling.


I forgot the name but I ordered them on here. They are foam interlocking squares with dinosaurs. We needed 2 sets to fill the play yard.

Q:How wide is each panel??


We bought the 8 panel and they are each 4 ft and a smidge wide

Q:Is it strong enough to hold up if an infant tried to stand and pulled up on a panel?


Absolutely. That is all our 11-month-old does; up and down, up and down. It’s great for cruising.

Q:can this be used open like to block off a room or large area from dogs? I know it wont fix to a wall but can it lean and stay put once open straight


well, using it open may not work great as it can easily be moved by a mere push or pull. I do use it open sometimes too now that my 1 year old has started walking a lot to block certain areas we don’t want him to walk up to…it works but not so great…

Q:If I buy 3 pairs of the extensions I can make a playard? or I need something else? I need to mail it to outside the US and I need in separate parts


You should be fine doing it that way. Extensions can just be added in. This item is very simple to add or remove gates.

Q:Can I buy it in separated parts? I need to mail it to me outside the US and my mail company won’t bring it if it is more than 4 kg.


No, it is sold together, but you could separate the joints and package pieces yourself.

Q:does it work on wood floors


Just like anything else on a wood floor it will slide. Maybe a large throw rug underneath? This gate is amazing

Q:is it easy to open the panel and go in? I am wondering whether to buy this one or the one that comes with a gate (north states superyard colorplay ultimate)?


The one that I purchased (it has been a few years, though) isn’t easily opened and closed. I would maybe recommend one with the gate!
