Rated 4 out of 5 by sdsteph Serves it's purpose
I bought this to function as a crib and changer in my room as I do not have room or an area for a changer and crib. My baby has been sleeping in the upper portion (bassinet) since birth. She's 2 months and sleeps just fine in it. The board that she sleeps on isn't completely even so I have to position her head/body where the board folds. The vibrating unit has never worked with the bassinet or rocker which is very disappointing because my baby would probably go down quicker with the vibration. I haven't even used the rocker unit. I'm borrowing a vibrating chair which I'm glad I have since the vibration doesn't work. I bought this product because I'm tall (6') and I didn't want to have to bend that far down to change and this playard has the highest changing table. In the beginning the baby rolled to the side because the changer sloped, but since she weighs more now it's fairly flat. I like having the storage for diapers and wipes. This playard will serve its purpose and overall I'd recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TLouise Excited to try it!!
After reading many reviews, I decided to put this particular play yard on my registry. I can not remember WHY I selected this model, but I am glad I did! Now, it does take a bit of head scratching to assemble- I was so excited to get it going, I think I put the base in 2x only needing to remove it & use it in another section.
When I went to assemble the actual cuddle cove (white bassinet) I saw that my fabric was dirty.... however, I reached out to Graco & they promptly sent me a replacement (great customer service!!) The changing table doesn't really "click" into place, but it is stable (I only mention that b/c it seems everything else "clicks" into a locked position.
I also threw away my product registration paperwork, but, again, Graco having awesome customer service, they helped me locate the needed information & registered it for me!
I can't wait until my baby arrives so I can use it!!

I really love this playard. I read other reviews saying this was hard to put together and I completely disagree--I was about 27 weeks and I put it together myself. Like all things for children and babies, it's annoying to put together but it isn't difficult at all. I love the cuddle cove seat, the changing table, the bassinet option, the nightlight/music addition, and definitely the storage capacity on the side. I have a little downstairs changing station for the baby all set up. I'm planning on having my newborn sleep in this--either in the removable cuddle cove seat or in the bassinet--so I suppose the only drawback is, obviously, if she's sleeping in the bassinet, then I'll have to remove the changing table portion. Still, it's so convenient and there are so many ways to make this versatile that it's definitely worth the purchase. I really like the neutral coloring, too (I have the Sands playard) because a lot of the color schemes for girls are too much.

I got this free to review. All views are my own. I love it. With my first child the pack and play was so simple. I am a short person I couldn't use it as a travel bed. This solves that issue. You have everything you need on the go or in your bedroom. I am so odd I wake up and have to be able to look at my baby/kid the nightlight rocked no more waking the baby up just to check on them. I also love the vibrate setting great for gassy baby or getting them to sleep. Oh lets not forget the removable seat. I can to the baby everywhere I go as I do my work and house work. It is soft and washable which is huge when you got kids. At some point someone will leak,poop or puck never fails. This really is an item that will grow with them. Only things about is you will need pack and play sheets the broad is waterproof but doesn't have fabric to it. I did have a little bit of a hard time putting together, but not big issues well worth the price. Also this will last longer then the cheaper ones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Laureano1210 Amazing benefits and features
I received it as a gift from my registry and we love it. The removable seat, the pad to change the diaper and endless options. We are able to take it with us when traveling. It is great. Plus it is lacender.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ljr11 Lots of comfort options
I bought this while I was expecting my son. The set up was easy, just a little time consuming. I love how it has a connecting piece with pockets to store the necessities like diapers, rash cream, wipes, extra pacifiers, lotion, nasal suction bulb and so on. It makes night time diaper changes convienient with the removable changing table. The portable rocker was a life saver once my son was born. Being able to bring him with me if he fell asleep in there was awesome. I also love how it has vibrations, music and light that at a he's right to the pack n play. Definitely a must have baby item!

Rated 5 out of 5 by penguin707 Meets my expectations
This is a very functional and easy to put together. The colors are neutral, can go with any decor. Graco makes very smart pack 'n play, a few years back we used one for our first child also and loved the experience. The new design "Playard with Cuddle Cove Removable Seat" is all the more better, can't wait for my baby to be born, I'm sure he would be so comfy in this pack 'n play made with the softest material.
-- It has four compartments to store all the basic necessity stuff like wipes, diaper, burp cloths, onesies, baby blanket.
-- Removable seat can stand on its own and feels sturdy.
-- Vibration in both seat and bassinet is an awesome feature, my baby can sleep peacefully.
-- When my baby is little older, he can play in the playard while I finish my chores around the house.
I will definitely recommend this product, high quality and best priced.
