Future Baby shower gift.
It is a Baby shower gift to niece. Haven't open it. But it look good in the box. Sorry that is the best I can do.
Mat Not Washable!
When I got this, everything worked fine but after my son got a little old, I put him in the lower level. You can not take the fabric off and throw it in the washer, the boards are like paneling divided into three sections. If you do not get it 100% dry (which is hard to do with milk, accidents, etc...) and just general cleaning), the boards will bow. The mat attaches with velcro to the bottom of the play yard. There is a 1" gap between the sides where it attaches- which makes it easy for curious babies to pull up the mat, letting them have access to the bottom part of the play yard (where the metal rods on the bottom are- thank goodness it has fabric there!). If you want a play yard that is easy to clean, assemble and is safe for infants 6 mos +, get a different brand or maybe a different model.

We really liked it after we finally figured out how to put it together... Little tricky! Super cute and worth the price!!
Ok so I just joined the Second trimester of Pregnancy and don't know what I am having yet so I ordered something neutral, it's super cute, that's all it has going for it!! I ordered this product on sale online, received it a few days ago. Something kept telling me to take it out of the box and set it up. Well, I set it up and went to move it out of the way so my boy could walk past (like 6 inches) and it popped up underneath. I had to get it straightened back out for it to sit flat on the floor again. Got the thing situated, all parts were accounted for. Since I don't need to use it for another 6 months I took it back apart to put it in the carrying bag for storage. Well, the one side would NOT collapse. I had hubby try, he messed with it and it still wouldn't collapse. I put it aside and read the enclosed information about defective products etc. Ok, so I can't call on Saturday so I have to wait till Monday. UGH. I want it taken care of NOW not later. Impatient, yes! Anyway, I went back later to try to give it another chance at collapsing and it just won't budge. After reading some reviews I have decided to take it the way it sits back to Walmart. I will NOT get another one to replace it. Going to find me a Graco.
I love my grandson's Bassinet/Playpen
Yes my daughter just put it up tonight, and we love it for when my grandson visit's grandma. Some of attachments were very hard to connect together, and I told my daughter that once these go in they're never coming out. I love the night light, and vibrations and music. You hit a home run with this thank you very much I wished you had a matching comforter and sheet set cause I love matching things. Respectfully, Debra
All in one is great
12/1/2014 by newgreatgrandma
I bought this item for my grandaughter who is having her first child, she loved it.
All in one looks beautiful..great price
Pros: Looks great! Price! Everything at fingertips! Very sturdy and looks well made! Cons: Mattress.. I bought a play yard 5in mattress separatly and it fit perfectly and will be great! None of the "mattresses" for any of the play yards I looked at were thick and would be fine if used for playpen but not for a comfortable sleeping area to be used regularly. So this con depends on what you will use this item for and really goes for all play yards. I was a little skeptical of buying this because the prices on these all in one play yards fluctuate so much and this price was low. I took a chance and am happy I did! This looks beautiful and went together easily. My grandson will not be born till feb so I have not used it yet so that and mattress made it 4 star rating. IMPORTANT : Watch video on line to set up..there is a certain way to get sides up. I have a pac and play from a few years ago (1st grandchild) that took me a long time to set up each time and was frustrating. That was one reason I bought new but after video and learning the " trick" I can set up both. I like this new play yard so much I am giving old pac and play to daughter to use as play pen later and keeping this one even tho I can now set up old one easily.
Not worth the money!
Got this as a gift, & the changing pad & canopy constantly pop off. the mattress support for when the mat is up for newborns is flimsy. I used this for my son to sleep in for 2 months while we were moving into our new apartment, & in those 2 months, I had to lower it when he started pulling himself up. the mat wouldn't lay flat, so he was uncomfortable. I had to straighten out his new room so he could go in his crib to sleep comfortably. If you're buying this, either don't use the newborn position at all, or buy a board that will fit underneath the mat so it doesn't curve in the middle...
Perfect for baby
This perfect for baby playard is very sturdy once it is put together. It was a little difficult to set up but once we did my son loved it for his baby.
No no no
11/14/2014 by Britteliz444444
Took me 2 hours to put together. Went to take it down and two of the sides wouldn't fold so I had to take it back to walmart the way it was. We need something easier to put up and down. Very cute but not worth the $100
I was very pleased with how quickly I received this item. I got this for a friend for a baby shower gift and she was very pleased.
11/9/2014 by An anonymous customer
This is by far the best purchase/investment i made. The pad was a little thin but walmart had a portable crib mattress that fits just perfect!
11/2/2014 by Pamela101 from Vine Grove, KY
Beyond my expectations. Great for the price.
I bought this as a gift for my niece & her husband, as a special request from them. Can't tell you the durability etc, as the baby was just born today & hasn't had a chance to use the product. I will update accordingly. The giraffes are the cutest thing though!!!!!
Just as described
Easy to assemble. Would buy again
Great for first time Mothers :)

The product is not as described.
Its perfect for someone who doesnt want a crib
I know that letting a baby sleep in the playard for all sleep isnt recommended but after all the playing and spilling thats been done it cleans up easy and has no tears or anything in it. we've had it for 1.5 yrs now. Definitely recommend this as a buy!
Baby Trend Nursery Center Playyard
This was a baby gift and the recipients are extremely pleased. It was easy to order and ship through Walmart. All seems to be well.
2-in-1: bassinet to play yard
8/18/2014 by Excitedsoon2bmama
Have not used product just yet as baby has not arrived. Product has been assembled and is very nice. Easy to assemble, great storage space for diapers, wipes, lotions, etc., night light, vibration, sounds, and music for baby. Easy to maneuver and like that it comes with a moveable changing table. The detail and design with neutral colors are beautiful and can be for a girl or boy. I like that it grows with baby and does not take up too much space. Looking forward to using this product.
a little diappointed
8/12/2014 by Christine8660
its a lovely playyard however when its time to close up for travelling purposes it doesn't close back properly to fit into the carry bag
I bought this for my granddaughter. It is great to have such a cute and, neutral colors. So it can be used for future grandchildren. My daughter loved all the features on it.
Haven't used it much...but missing the music box!!
Haven't used it enough to give accurate review...but missing the music box!!
Great alternative to a traditional crib
7/23/2014 by Ezra0315 from Murrieta, CA
I got this as an alternative to getting a crib for my baby. He's been using it since he was born. He is now 28 months and still sleeps in it. I bought a 3" thick pack n play mattress for it and he is very comfortable in it. He's always slept through the night. In fact I was thinking of getting him a toddler bed but am afraid of him not liking it because he's been in this bed for so long. I think I'll hold off on the toddler bed, since it's ok for him to use this one until he's 3. And invest on the tent bed with slide later. ;). The only reason I gave it a 4 is because the musical box it comes with came broken we fixed it ourselves, and the changing pad/table was not straight, it was crooked. So I removed it. But other than that it's been wonderful for sleeping, which is what it's made for in the first place. :)
7/23/2014 by AKidsWorld from Vallejo
I like it.
returning this product
Put it together..if took long time but we did it..then we tried to collapse it and it was impossible. Other of us could not collapse it fully and there was no way to pack it in the BG or the box with all the parts.

Baby is going to love this.

GOOD PLAYPEN, BUT....
6/4/2014 by KingmanGirl from Arizona
I got the wrong music box which is a bit upsetting, other wise the playpen/bassinet itself is very nice!
It is beautiful as well as practical.
My niece loves it . This is her baby shower gift. When she opened it, she was delighted.
i would recomend this playard
5/19/2014 by kartoffelsalat
it was a bit confusing to put together, and the 2 stabalicing rods on the buttom of the playard kinda just hang there loose, witch is realy wierd cause when u move the playard they fall out but, there is nothing to hold them. Otherwise it seams very sturdy and i love the features, i just wished it would come in a bright color since baby's need lots of color, but, the light braun looks very nice. all in all a nice playard
Expected a better qualty
5/18/2014 by Imachoosey1 from St. Louis, MO
The playard looks nice. However, I had to order a replacement mattress from Baby Trend. It was not sewn properly at the seam. In my opinion, the mattress could have used more padding. I also purchased a play yard mattress for more adequate comfort. I appreciate the convenient compartments. The play yard is average. I haven't quite decided to keep it. My new grandson hasn't arrived yet.
This nursery center play yard was easy to assemble. It is sturdy and adorable. I like that it has storage compartments and a flip away changing table. I am very satisfied with this product and the price was well worth it. I wish there were more colors available but I am still happy.
Perfect Item for expecting Moms.
I purchased this item as a shower gift for my niece. She was so excited when she opened the package and put the Playyard together. She intends to use this as a crib and later, plans to take this with her on vacation etc. Could not have selected a more needed item with so many great appointments. Baby is expected to arrive in the next five days and she is now set with her most important need. Shipping was faster than scheduled and it was a joy to shop on line with Wal-Mart. Pekinvilla

When we came home from the hospital this was the only thing my son would sleep in it was truly a life saver. He has now moved to his crib but I still use it as our changing station.
Good but buy a less expensive playard
4/14/2014 by missstefi from Columbus, GA
I like the playard but if I had found a review like mine, I would have went with a less expensive model. You can't use the canopy and the diaper storage pieces at the same time when you have the bassinet insert attached. The sound/vibration module is not a corner unit, it actually hooks on the side. This works out wonderfully because you can take the unit and put in on a crib rail or a freestanding bassinet, which is the reason I rate this 3 stars instead of 2. I currently have the canopy and diaper storage pieces in the closet, so they are useless to me.
This is very helpful for when we visit family. We also used it in our bedroom until our son started sleeping in the crib in his room.
Excellent Purchase and Value for the Price!
4/4/2014 by LSVanzie from Baltimore, MD
This product arrived in the mocha color as shown on Walmart's website, which was perfect for us as it matched our base decor scheme perfectly. I actually like the construction of this particular canopied playard better than the more expensive Graco playards. It is lighter, has a more sturdy baby changing station and the bassinet area seems to be more secure. I would highly recommend this highly portable playard. Get it before they sell out!
a very nice product

I bought this for my first grandchild. It is beautiful and everything I expected. My son and his wife are overjoyed with the product. Can't wait until the little one is born. Awesome product.
GREAT PLAYARD MULTIPLE PURPOSES
3/27/2014 by VENCOR from QUEENS, NY
IT IS A GREAT PRODUCT VERY EASY TO ASSEMBLE. IF YOU PLAN ON TRAVELING FOR VACATIONS INSTEAD OF USING THE CRIB THE HOTEL PROVIDED YOU WITH, YOU CAN EASILY FOLD YOR PLAYA RD AND BRING IT WITH YOU. I LOVE THIS PRODUCT AND WILL LAST UNTIL BABY REACHES 2 YRS OF AGE.

I am gifting this item to my granddaughter for use with her anticipated baby girl. She wanted this for use as a crib at her mom's house and when camping. We hope it fills the bill.

Got this as a baby gift for first son and loved it works great he's now 18m and with another son on the way I'm very pleased to use it again...
Just what my son wanted
3/16/2014 by Tonide from Scottsdale az
This is what my son wanted n he is very happy with it .
2/19/2014 by PatGN from GA
We’ve been using this product for the last 7 months. We love it. Our son is staring to roll and get on his knees, so it's crib time. With that said, we feel this is the best invention ever for parents and babies.
Loved everything,but its not as durable
2/18/2014 by PorshiaS from Baltimore,MD
Its a very nice playard.The only suggestion I would have is to, also purchase a mattress for more support,but besides that its worth the money.
Bought for a gift
2/12/2014 by texascasa from Kerrvile, Texas
to early to tell how well it will hold up. I bought it for my granddaughter and the baby is due in another 4 months. By looks it meets all expectations.

2/6/2014 by FarmMommy24 from Oregon
I looked at a ton of play yards before choosing this one and I am very happy with my choice! I love the neutral colors and the storage spaces for diapers, wipes, a change of clothes, ect. My daughter loves the music and the giraffes. She used to just stare and smile at them and now swats at them. My only complaints are that the changing area is not waterproof (even though I wiped the urine off of it right away it stained), and the canopy is kind of difficult (it sometimes pops off if you try to fold it down or bring it back up). I have stopped trying to move the canopy and now just move the changing station. Overall, I love it and so does my 5 month old. :)
Nice Product for the price
2/4/2014 by ShoppingMommy116 from Iowa
We are expecting our 2nd child in about 7 weeks, and we chose to have a playard with a bassinet built in this time around due to the versatility. There are a few things that I wasn't expecting from the picture. 1) the diaper holder is much smaller than I imagined and will not even hold a small pack of newborn diapers. 2) the assembly instructions were less than helpful. 3) the color appeared to be more gray in the picture, but it is actually shades of brown (not a huge deal to us). 4) the changing table is not as stable as I imagined. 5) Fitting everything back into the carrying bag is not easy (I think we'll leave the canopy and accessory holder home when we travel). Overall, I think it's a nice product for the price, but it didn't quite meet all the marks we were hoping for.
2/3/2014 by GJD1955 from LUDLOW, KY
THIS WILL BE GREAT FOR MY NEW GRANDSON, IT WILL GROW WITH HIM, WILL BE GREAT WHILE HE IS SMALL AND THEN TO BE USED WHEN HE GETS BIGGER ALSO. PERFECT!
Not washable & babies spit up but good product.
My son is 4 1/2 months old I wanted this specific play pen . He slept in the top bassinet area till about 14 lbs cause he was to heavy. Now at 18 lbs he seems to heavy for the just play pen bottom area. The changer is great. Nothing on this is machine washable! . babies are messy during diaper changes. And if it's a boy they shoot out when you change them. And as a new born he spit up bassinet sheets are to small for this!! So you can only wipe spit up off. Which is daily. The diaper changer caddy is great and convenient but I should have just purchased a 60 dollar one. I mainly was seeking a playpen that was also a bassinet. I wish it was washable. I wish it held weight better. This is a great product but I should have gotten something half the price.
1/25/2014 by jas120248 from Illinois
Excellent for 5 month old babies
Color not as shown
1/22/2014 by Mtgirlkrissy
I love the cute style with the bed skirt you can use as extra storage. I tried to find in any reviews or description the exact color, none was stated. On the pictures it showed the pack and play as mainly a grey color. The color is more of an olive green. Not as cute as the pictures. Disappointing!
Perfect for a new baby.
Perfect for a new baby will travel from room to room with ease.
More Than was Expected
1/16/2014 by Avgie from Oh
I got this for my son and daughter in-law. They were going to get one from another store but it was out of stock so I found this one at Walmart and get it for them. When they received it they like this one much better than the one they were going to get. They said that this one had more features than the other one and it was prettier. I saw it and it looked better than the picture. Also it was cheaper than the one that they were going to get. We are all very please with this playard.
1/11/2014 by Armica from Chicago, IL
Upon receiving this as a baby shower gift, I loved it. I wanted to use this as a temporary crib for my daughter due to limited space in our apartment and at first she appeared to really like it. However, weeks later she fails to remain asleep in it. This may be due to the hardness of the "raised platform" that helps the playard to function as a crib. If you purchase this be sure to purchase a mattress so baby will sleep comfortably...I definitely plan on doing so. Also, I initially liked the the idea of sound options, but after hearing them they are too loud with no way of quieting them, making it impossible to utilize this to aid my baby in sleeping
1/8/2014 by ECory from Shelby , mi.
Over all , I think this is a great product to buy and the price I paid was great too.
All the parents love this Playard
12/31/2013 by Lela66 from Tampa, Fl
This is the third Baby Trend-Nursery Center Playard that I have ordered. I've given one to each of the last 3 great-grandsons that has arrived. All the parents love them. They are useful, convenient and all-around what you need for a new baby. And, they can be used up until the child is walking. I will continue giving them to each new great-grandchild that the Lord sends to us.
Pleased with purchase for my first grandbaby....
12/17/2013 by wish47 from california
I shopped around quite a bit because I wanted my first grandbaby to have a special beginning.. This proved to be the best in looks and the price was great.. Highly recommend...
Great pack n play
12/5/2013 by ceirby from Gadsden
highly recommend my daughter loves it
12/5/2013 by Elizamommy from El Reno, Oklahoma
My grandparents bought this for me about two months ago. I was a little disappointing when I opened it and saw that it was not the same one as in the pictures online. With further reading I realized that Walmart sells the cheaper version of the one the brand sells on their website, which is the same one as in the pictures. The only difference was the music station. The one in the picture has an aux input and the one I received did not, but that isn't a big deal. It was very easy for me to put together by myself. I had all the parts, nothing was broken, and it is stable. It did take a little while longer to find bedding and a mattress that would fit it because it is bigger than standard size, but i managed. If I could change anything about it is I wish I could change the hanging giraffes since my nursery theme is owls.
So much for a great price!
If you don't expect your first time to go as smoothly as the video you won't be disappointed. I thought I could just pop it up without reading the instructions. I wouldn't recommend that...I had to start over. Once I read the instructions things moved along much more smoothly! Great product.
very nice price$$$

Great For Grandma's House
11/24/2013 by JEinAZ from AZ
Although the directions were useless, very hard to comprehend, we got on YouTube and watched the video, and were able to put it together in a matter of minutes. It is exactly as pictured, very sturdy and durable for the price. Just waiting for our grandchild to get here so we can try it out!!
Baby Trend not up and running
11/22/2013 by egls from Los Angeles
I finally had some workers who I use to move and assemble items attempt to put the Baby Trend Nursery Center up for me; they were here doing something else, and my husband hadn't yet opened the box. But we could not get one of the sides to stay up. After several attempts and various different methods (using the instructions from the box), we gave up. Fortunately our grandchild had not yet arrived and we will have to return the Baby Trend and look further for a replacement. Despite all the positive reviews about this item, I definitely have to question its reliability and quality control.

Perfect for my grandson's needs, definitely meets my expectations. My grandson will really enjoy!
Problems and bad customer service (manufacturer)
11/8/2013 by raftgide67 from Maine
It's a very nice looking play yard but there have been a few problems. The first issue is the bars that join together to support the bassinet feature didn't all join together. One pair did, the second did not. I was able to join them partially with a rubber mallet, but now they will not come apart so now it cannot be packed back into the travel/storage bag. The second problem is the music/vibration/light box. The nature sounds feature was a major factor in choosing this particular play yard. However, when I press the nature sounds button, the nature sounds cycle through, playing just a few seconds each, and the it stops playing. According to the enclosed manual this is not how this feature is supposed to work. So I called baby trend. First they told that the music box was not defective. It's supposed to work that way. After providing the model number and a few other facts proving that I actually did purchase and own this item, they asked for pictures of the bars and my receipt. I obliged and restated that I felt the music box is defective. An hour or so later I received a reply to my email. The music box is back ordered and they want more pictures of the bars. Seriously? They also suggested that I could return it to the retailer. The retailer is a 40 minute drive away and I need this for my newborn granddaughter tomorrow. I wish there was a way to rated the manufacturer's customer service.
Not bad for the price
11/2/2013 by rna10507 from Hudson
We bought this just before my daughter was born over a year ago. It's very nice for the price but it's very hard to clean.
great even for up to one yr olds
10/29/2013 by Adrishpy from Palmdale ca
It ship sooner then expected which is great since I'm.currently 8 months pregnant . I also have a 14 month old that weighs 19 lbs 26 " and still fits in the changing table and she also fits well I'm sure her lil brother will fit in it great so a long time it's easy to assemble and feels very sturdy.
10/28/2013 by Mssten1 from Tolleson, AZ
This product is classy. It looks great and we are very satisfied with the color, fabric, features, although we'd like a timer on it.
Lots of extras
10/18/2013 by Gruntmom101 from Austin Texas
You get a lot for the money with this one. I purchased it to keep here for my grandbabies so not sure about daily durability yet. My only complaint is that the bedding is surface washable only. Be careful when you push the hanger tabs onto the " Parent Center " they are not coming out once they go in so make sure you have them facing the right direction! Also, there are two different music centers. One has the option of plugging in an Ipod and the other does not. It's just " luck of the draw " which one you get! Overall, I am still pleased with it. It's cute , gender neutral and a good price.

Great Play Yard System!! Love It Love It Love It!!
9/4/2013 by SJC329 from Newark, NJ
I purchased this play yard system for my grandson at birth to use when he visits with me. I must say that it is better than I expected especially for the price. It has all the bells and whistles including music, nightlight and vibrating features. My grandson is now 1 year old and I still use it for him to sleep and play in when he visits which is about 3 nights a week since birth. This was one of the best purchases I made!! Great product and sturdy!!
not at all durable
This pack n play had everything I was looking for and was so excited to get it, had to order on line as I searched and searched all the stores for what I was looking for with no success. When this arrived and we tried to set it up it snapped immediately in the mechanism in the bottom and was broke. We returned it and I did a little more research and ended up getting the Graco modern and love it!!!
Perfect Pack N Play

Baby Trends Bassinett and Playard
8/20/2013 by cchatman from Chicago, Illinois
I purchased this product for my niece as a shower gift, and I am very pleased with the quality and durability of this product, it will last for years to come.
Easy to assemble.
8/20/2013 by Fig2 from Ankeny, IA
The only drawback was the instruction booklet is in multiple languages and you have to go through every section of assembly and locate the english instructions.
didn`t work for me
8/17/2013 by casita34 from fl
I bought this product two months ago, i opened it a week ago and surprise, there were missing parts and the bassinet almost didn`t have any padding at all. I called the company they were amazing and sent the missing parts but it was too late , I returned it because the whole concept didn`t work for me, the bassinet is not stable enough and the instructions were not really clear , so if you purchase this, go to a store a check how it is assembled and use your common sense instead of the instructions, as i said before the concept might work for other people but not for me, I am happy I returned it,but I have to let you know their customer service is amazing,,,,Good luck ,,again this is only my personal experience,,,
8/12/2013 by BigMamaFl from Miramar, florida
It's better then I thought. Easy to put together and durable.
Excellent choice in a pack and play
8/11/2013 by LeahnMary from Erie pa

Easy to assemble, looks terrific, baby loves the vibration
Exactly what every mother needs
7/29/2013 by Ebonysue from Boston, Mass
I searched every other baby store out there and this play yard exceeds all my expectations. It was easy to put together as long as you read the directions. It has all the storage compartments needed to make taking care of your little one easy and all compartments are within arms reach. The best thing about this play yard is the changing table. I would have given five stars if the changing table raised up a little higher but I still love it regardless. This is a very adorable play yard. It's so worth more than the little bit of money I paid for this
outstanding quality and great value!
7/25/2013 by Schultemom from Hagerstown, md
I'm a the time mom and I'm very impressed with how easy the set up is and how durable the product is for the price!
Was returned missing pieces
7/24/2013 by cassie916 from sacramento,CA
I was so excited to find a play pen with all the features I wanted that,was until I tried to put it together. It was missing a total of 4 pieces and eventhough I wanted the instructional video it was super hard to put together. Very disappointed will not buy from baby trend again!
good for the price
7/22/2013 by goldengirl911 from riverside, ca
For the price this is a good product (we bought it on black Friday special) What I don't care for is the music/sound features changes itself... so if I put on one my baby likes, after a minute or two it changes all by itself!! and then I have a fussy baby!!! We ended up putting our own sound device near the pack and play for her.
the price is right
7/18/2013 by kachambers from gettysburg, pa
ordered online for my daughter had it sent her home received into days and they love it has a lot a nice features it works for them
Great Features, Slightly Problematic
7/12/2013 by shoppermomma123 from Elizabethtown, KY
I chose this after searching online for a bassinet substitute for my 6th child-to-be. It has everything in one compact area (changing table, changing accessories storage, bassinet, playard) and some awesome added features (such as the vibrating/musical box that plays upbeat and soothing music, nature sounds, and has the option to record your voice, night light with varying levels of brightness, and imput for an mp3 player). I've read that others had an easy time putting theirs together, but I was seriously having contractions by the time I got mine assembled. First, the sides wouldn't click into place (this is my 6th child and 4th play yard, so I do feel like I have a little experience in this area), but I did manage that. The changing table was easy to assemble, but did require minimal assembly. I needed a second pair of hands to get the changing table attached, but again, not a real issue. I put the pieces on in the order that the manual suggested, only to find that they wouldn't fit together correctly and had to take things apart to get them on. The side clips for the bassinet were too narrow, so I had to force those on and there's no snaps or velcro to hold the canopy in place, so it will just hang in baby's face if I leave it on there. Even with all of that, I still really like it (once I get used to the quirks, it will be fine). I'm hoping that it holds up well and am looking forward to using all of the features.
cute but small

my granddaughter is having a baby and I got this for her. It has a lot of good features and we especially like that it plays music and she can record her voice on it too. The changing station, bassinet setting, and place to put diapers and other things needed to take care of the baby were all big in our decision to get this particular model. They are on the go a lot and portability is a must. I can not give it a total rating at this time since we have not yet opened the box.
Exactly what I was looking for!

After much looking and even buying another play yard, I finally found this one before I opened the other one I bought. So glad because this has everything I was looking for. I didnt want to invest in a bassinet, so this serves as a 2 in 1. Has a high setting to be used with infant, which I plan to use at our bedside. This brand is the only brand I could find that had a flip changing table. No need to detach, doesnt restrict access to baby, very sturdy and secure. In addition, this play yard has plenty of storage for diapers, wipes and ointments (only thing better would be an added hamper). The canopy is unnecessary for our primary intention to use indoors, but would come in handy if planning on being out doors in sunlight for summer parties, camping, etc. Like the extra added feature of music, light and vibration. Great investment for the price since the bed drops down to low setting for toddler years. Love the fact that the earthy mutual color goes well in our bedroom, but is also gender neutral so we can use with future children of any gender.
Great for grandparent's house

Well I literally read through about every review on here before purchasing so I thought I'd make my own helpful review. This play yard is awesome. I haven't got to use it but I definitely wish I had it with my first child . This is a great choice especially if you don't have much room. First off it was fairly simple to put together even being 36 weeks pregnant. The color is actually really nice which was one thing I was worried about. I heard mixed reviews that some came with a mobile but mine didnt. Its fine though, the giraffes are really cute. The mattress pad is actually softer than I expected although I did still order the Graco Dream On Me 3" Foam mattress to add a little cushion but youdon't really NEED it. The music box is awesome and thr volume cam be adjusted slightly. The vibration however you can't really feel. I have yet to use the changing table but it seems pretty sturdy to me. All in all, this was an awesome purchase and I'd definitely recommend it.
Good play yard!

I have a 3 week old and this is great for use during the day. Money well spent.

I had been looking at all the pack n plays. I personally was planning on going with graco because they are such a trusted name. However constant searching in found this pack n play exactly what I wanted. Its a great affordable price.It has held up really well. Does not look used yet I use everyday and have traveled with. It is easy to put up and take down just make sure you READ INSTRUCTIONS FIRST. I plan on using this with my next baby I got neutral for this very purpose. I have a girl and it works well I hope on having a boy next.

This playard is the best money can buy. it has everything: Diaper dispernser, above the diaper dispenser there is a place for your box with wipies & on the sides above the diaper dispenser are 2 holders for baby powder, diaper rash cream etc. etc. in other word its a whole baby changing station.
This Grandma is happy

I bought this for my new grandchild and it is perfect. The second floor is great for the newborn, you don't have so far to go to lay her down. She loves looking at the mobile while I change her. I have plenty of storage and the, (not sure what it is called so I will call it) battery operated music/vibrating music box is perfect for her. I can put it on vibrate and music and she goes right out. I have only had this for one month and am so glad I got this.
It is a nice little baby center.

The main problem I have with this playard is the instructions. The tell you to lift up the ends by putting your hands on each side of the middle. And doesn't tell you not to press the middle down until all sides are locked. My son & I tried to put it together and we are both normally very good at this type of thing but could not get the top and bottom to snap in place. My daughter came over the next day before I had a chance to take it back and she put it up with no problem because she had one also and said the instructions. That you should lock all sides into position before pressing the center down. Had it not been for her I would have returned a perfectly good Playard saying it was defective. Someone needs to look at the instructions and redo them. Also there a video on your site of this Playard and the woman tells you all about the features but doesn't show how to put it together. That would have been nice.
What a great buy!

It had all the features I was looking for. I would definitely recommend this product to others. In my opinion, it was a great product for a great price!
Love this product

I bought this pack and play for my daughter who is expecting twins. She love the fact that she can record her voice, play music, and have the vibration to help ease the babies. It is very roomy and has a ton of usable features. I would recommend this to all.
I am very pleased with this purchase. I did have a couple parts missing, but I called the number of the manufacturer and they sent the missing parts fast! This is a very nice product for a very fair price.

We bought this with our baby due in a few weeks. First off, the mattress support bars for the bassinet part weren't even in the box. The bars for the diaper changing part were warped. The vibrator/night light/music box was very poorly constructed. The night light was not set in the box properly. We bought it because of the features and it was cheap. Cheap is the right word for it. Poor construction and very heavy. Not very portable in my opinion, and I will be returning it for a refund. From now on I'll stick with a brand I am familiar with and trust.
Bassinet Playard is great.

I am very happy with the Bassinet Playard. I espcially like the changing table. It is very sturdy and secure when I put the baby into it. She enjoyed looking at the hanging giraffs while I changed her diaper. Would recommend this to my friends. It is attractive and will be very useful for a long time.

Im gunna be a Grandma any day and I wanted to buy a nursery center that was sturdy and have fun features. We found it when we bought this. It's really fashionable and a great buy!

I am very pleased with this purchase. I bought it for a sleeping space for twin grandsons and later an outside playyard. It has more features than the one my daughter chose for her home at a nuch higher price. You can record your own voice or add an MP3 player for your personal music. In addition it has a sound activation so if the baby wakes the sound and vibrating feature go on automatically. It also looks very nice and is easy to moe around the room. I would recommend this product.
I'm very happy with my product!

I'm a first time grandparent & I need something that my grandchild could use when she stays the night with us. We have very limited space & no place to put a full size crib. So I purchased this play pen/bassinet/diaper changing table, I'm so glad I did because I like all the features that came with this product. I never had a play pen when my children where little. This product was so easy to set up & take down & takes so little space to store away when not in use. The product is made very well, although the canopy is a little flimsy. I feel it was well worth every penny I paid for this product & I would do it again if I had to. Only issue I had with this product was when I took the product out of it's box for the first time I found that the zipper on the cloth bag was broken. I contacted the company that made the product & they are going to send me a replacement bag free of charge. Other than that I'm very happy with my product.
Good so far
I haven't gotten to use this yet, I have 5 wks to go before the baby comes. My sole reason for purchasing it was so that the baby would have a place to sleep and play in a place other than her crib. It wasn't hard to put together. My only complaint is that it doesn't fit through any of my door frames so I have to fold it down to move from room to room. The design is nice and I like the little box that came w/ it for music and the night light. It also allows me to connect my MP3 player! Also it has a changing table so that saved me from having to purchase one!
So far so good!
So far I love this pack-n-play. The pics on here make it look more like it is a light blue and gray in color, but it is actually tan. It also has some areas where it is small tan/black checkers. But I'm not complaining cuz I actually like the colors alot. Our baby isnt here yet for us to test it out, but so far I like it alot. The little music box player it comes with is neat too. It lets you record stuff like your voice and you can play it for the baby. You can also hook up your Ipod to it. The vibrating feature is interesting. The music box itself is what vibrates, not the bassinet. I guess when baby lies in it, he's suppose to feel it vibrating. We'll have to wait and see. But so far I love this pack-n-play!!!
We'll See : )
I'm still pregnant and waiting to actually use this product. Overall I would say setting it up was easy and the product is very nice. I love the colors and the style.

I received this play yard as a baby shower present, and I absolutely love it. My son spent his first four months sleeping in the bassinet. It is very sturdy and easy to take to the grandparents' house for overnight visits. The diaper changing station was ideal and saved me from buying another piece of furniture. It saved room and was easy to flip up- even with one foot (when the baby was in my arms). The only thing I do not like is that the locking handle feels a little uncomfortable for sleeping when you use the play yard without the bassinet. (It makes the mat a little hard in the middle.) However, the play yard will still be ideal for playing, once my son sits up by himself. Overall, I would highly recommend this product.
I bought this for my 3 month old to use as a bassinet and received it on December 23. It was simple to assemble other than I was looking for 2 bars that go under bassinet pad and thought they were left out until I noticed at the end of the carry bag a sticker that said the bars were not needed for this model. The only down side is the size, it is too wide to fit through my doorways without breaking down, other than that it is great.
