Why In The World?!

I want to know the etymology of the word playard. What was wrong with the word playpen?? Playard is the most ridiculous looking word...and are we supposed to believe it is like a yard to play in....spacious and grassy and wonderful? Let's be honest. It is a holding pen for babies!

Playpen was changed to play yard because it sounds nicer. Play pen sounded like pig pen or holding pen in a penitentiary. Children play in a yard not a pen like a caged animal. Gotta be a newage sensitive mom.
