A padded safety hinge construction for use in infant playyards and the like wherein the fasteners which hold the padding of the hinge in place also function as the pivot pins about which the playyard legs pivot. The inwardly protruding extremities of the hinge mechanism and the connecting fasteners are completely covered with padding so that an infant within the interior of the playyard enclosure is safeguarded from contacting any part of the mechanical structure. Should the infant fall against the hinge assembly it will only contact the smooth, padded covering which fully encapsulates the hinge mechanism.
