Can anyone recommend a good temporary fence?

We have a yard that's fenced in on three sides. How can I cheaply and easily close in the fourth side so that our small child is contained?

We recently bought a house and it has a nice yard. It has sturdy chain-link fence along the sides and the back, but the front is open. I'd like to close off the two sections between the fence and the side of the house so the entire backyard is enclosed - one section is about 10', the other a little over 7'.
My husband and I priced chain-link fence to finish the enclosure, but at $1200 installed it's a little steep for right now. I'm investigating the idea of doing it ourselves, but my husband isn't so sure it would work. The contractor mentioned that his neighbor uses a temporary fence that's a post and it has a fence inside it that retracts like a window shade. The guy can just pull it out and clip it to another post when it's needed. I've tried Googling but can't find it.
Does anyone know what kind of fence he was talking about, or could recommend something else to use?
