This a great playard. ! It is easy to fold, and it is very easy to get it back into the bag. The bassinet and changing table are also very easy to assemble. This is by far the best playard ive run across.
This a fantastic playard. We have a third baby on the way, and I thought it would be great to replace our old playard. This one is so much better! It is easy to fold, and it is very easy to get it back into the bag. I love that the bag has an extra compartment to store all of the pieces like the changing table and the part that makes it into a bassinet. My old system did not do that. It is also much easier to assemble the bassinet and changing table. I love the changing area because it seems very sturdy on the system and it is easy to fold it down and back up when you need it. The changing pad on this model is also an easily wiped surface unlike some of the others. The mattress is much softer than on my previous system, and it is also possible to unzip it and take the boards out to wash it. This is great for when baby has a blow out that goes through the sheets. On my previous playard, I would have to spot treat any stains, so I love being able to wash this one.
My two year old has tried it out and liked it, but I haven't tried the attached section to hang a mobile over the baby or let the child play on the ground like a floor mat.
I am SO much happier with this than my previous model. I don't actually see any negatives in the product.
This it item is a very practical purchase for any family with kids or expecting kids. We have a small daughter and the play yard is an invaluable purchase. It is perfect for a nap spot away from a crib or to sleep in when you travel to visit family. We have a Prius and the folded yard fits nicely in the hatchback while leaving space for other items.
In addition to the value of having a second safe sleeping environment for your child, this play yard provides many other benefits at this price. It has a changing table included which can save you steps. It also has a play mat with toys. This was my daughters favorite toy as a young infant. This feature will save parents from having to hold their child as much.
Another benefit of this product is that it is a nice gender neutral color pallet that will fit into an adult household. Playyards are items you can use for multiple children and can be sitting in your living room. It is difficult to find a gender neutral color palette that allows for use with future children and it is even harder to find colors and patterns that are jarring to normal household decorations. This hits on both of those levels.
While I like this product, there are things people just expect from a playyard. Everyone I have ever used is heavy and awkward to carry when folded. It just comes from the length of the item and is universal. They also almost always take 2 people to fold and unfold. I have no idea why but I have yet to encounter one that doesn't have that issue.
Over all I like this product and would recommend it to friends who are in the market for a play yard.
