This is the 3rd play yard that I have purchased for my children. This is for the one that we are expecting now and just from putting it together I can confidently say that of all of the ones before it, this is the BEST! We previously used a Graco pack N play with all the bells and whistles which I liked, but I always seemed to have an issue with for some reason.
First off, with our other one, the diaper changing table part was very flimsy feeling and my daughter would roll over onto her side or even her face when we placed her down for a change. This was because it was only supported on one end with bars but simply hung over on the other end. This play yard takes care of that because it is FULLY SUPPORTED on all 4 sides and does not bend in or slump down at all. Plus it supports a much heavier weight than the other one did.
Second, the bassinet part comes out and can be used as a floor gym with the toy bar attached to it. This is also nice since it makes one less thing to buy, unless you decide on one of those fancy floor gyms instead.
Third, the entire play yard is extremely sturdy and does not rock around as easily as the others. It seems very solid and although it is such, it doesn't feel like it weighs a ton like the others.
Fourth (and last), I VERY much enjoy the fact that I can simply fold over the diaper changing table and it's totally out of the way! The other play yard we used didn't have this option. You actually had to take apart the bars that attached it to the play yard frame and find somewhere to store it, only to put it back up 30 mins later to change another diaper! This just flips over and lays on the side of the play yard and takes 2 seconds to put back and secure. It creates so much more of an open space in the play yard for the baby.
All in all, I really cannot complain about much. The only one thing I wasn't extremely thrilled about was the feel of the material on the bassinet pad. It was a little rough and seems like it would be uncomfortable or scratchy if the baby was placed right on top of it. We were able to remedy this by purchasing the Carters Play Yard sheets (which we got super cheap right here) and it took care of that issue all together!
I LOVE this play yard for everything it has and it is extremely cute as well.
Amazing for the price!
We got this for our 7 week old son who is 9lbs 11oz and 23in. It was a little difficult to put together because I couldn’t find the instructions at first. I found them underneath the mattress in a pocket labeled “instructions enclosed,” oops! Once I had that, my husband and I were able to put it together fairly quickly. The bassinette/changer area is very sturdy and does not move or shake when our son does and he seems very comfortable in it. I think it will hold up for a long time. I also love the fact that you can fold it over the side and get it out of the way if needed. The caddy that comes with it holds diapers and wipes very nicely. It’s very sturdy and I don’t feel like they are going to spill out onto the floor. Our son is too young to play in it yet but I think it will hold up pretty well when that time comes. Packed up in the bag it is pretty heavy but once it was put together it is very light weight and easy to move around the room and with a little maneuvering it fits well through the door way without having to be collapsed. My husband and I really love this and recommend it!
We've used it for nearly 1 year now and like it a lot. The Dream on Me 3 Portable Crib Mattress fits great inside.
I'm in Love! !!
After extensive research, and price and quality comparison I decided to purchase this pack and play for my 2 month old daughter. And I'm so glad I did. This is the most amazing pack and pay I have had. After the kids i always make sure to treat all the review and compare every product before purchasing.
First of all it's beautiful. My daughter loves the black and white contrast and gets entertained with the sides or the toys hanging.
Second, I love that it's portable not too heavy like others and it comes with its own bag. It's easy to assemble and easy to put away to get on the road.
Third I also love that foldable bassinet comes out and can be used as a floor gym. So basically we are getting an extra toy for the same price as other play yards. And it's one less thing to carry around.
Fourth the price is amazing. Especially when compared too others in its price range or even more expensive ones.
Fifth it's such a time saver the fact that the changing table just flips over and lays on the side and out of the way. No need to attend my time taking it of and then storing it. Just flip and you are done.
Lastly this portable play yard is so sturdy and space saver that I'm just in love with it.
The only bad thing I have to say about it is that there is no way I would put my directly in the pad("mattress") that congress with it. It's so hard and uncomfortable on my opinion. So I did buy a dream on me 3" mattress, Which buy the way my daughter seems to loved and had been my life saver since it's the ONLY place where she will sleep ( through the night by the way! )
All in all I'm in Love! I would definitely recommend it to every family friend and mommy out there!
Very pleasing product, very reasonable price
I am pleased with this product. I like how it's interchangeable to fit the needs as my child grows. Met my expectations.
We actually like it more than the Graco one we have at ...
We bought this as a back-up pack n play for the grandparent's house. We actually like it more than the Graco one we have at home. This is a great compact product for traveling. We brought it on a trip with us and it was perfect!
Best Pack n Play ever!
Bought this to use with my second child, who is due soon. Based off past experience with other pack n plays I can already tell I'm going to love this one. Set up was easy, pops up just like others I've had and seems easy to fold down as well. Zip in feature of the bassinet is nice, I had no trouble with the additional velcro tabs but they were harder to get to for my husband's larger hands. The removable bottom is really cool, not sure how often I'll use it as a play mat but having the option to do so is handy. The best feature by far is the changing table though. Not only does it easily and quickly flip over to access the bassinet but when it's in place the inner bar goes completely across the with of the play yard and buckles on the sides. Which means it doesn't sag into the center of the play yard like some other brands. Haven't seen how well it can handle the weight of a baby yet but my 15 lb cat didn't cause it to sag any lol. Also looks like it will wipe clean easily for any poo explosions. The only thing I can think of that may be an issue is that the changer doesn't fit into the carry case unless it's been broken down as well. However, it doesn't take more than a few minutes to snap together so even that isn't much of an issue. Overall I'm extremely pleased with this pack n play and still can't believe how inexpensive it was compared to all the great features!
We have this next to our bed and we use this daily with our 1-month old. The additional compartments are great for storing diapers and other baby needs.
Just what I expected
Easy to put together and take apart. Get what you see in the pic. Can't wait to get the matching carseat/stroller set .
I love it!!!!
The bassinet: I love it! I used it as soon as we got home from the hospital up until 2 1/2 months as she started to reach the weight limit (15 pounds). The bassinet does sway just a tad when placing the baby in but not enough to wake her up.
The changing table: Does what it was made to do plain and simple. Unclips and flips over to move out of way. I would recommend putting a blanket or something down because it does get cold and baby wont be too happy. We are still using it my daughter is now 6 months.
The pack n play: I bought a mattress to put in the pack n play to use as a crib. It works great for now. No need to purchase a new bed that would have been WAY more expensive than the pack n play and mattress.
