Rated 4 out of 5 by Rekita Overall happy with purchase!
We purchased this playard for our first baby originally because I wanted to have a changing pad available on the first floor of or house in order not to have to keep going upstairs very time my son needed a diaper change. The price compared to other playards was great especially comparing the features. I love that it saves space by having a napper and changing pad in one. I wish it had a little bit more storage on the side, but you can buy hangin storage and add it on for a low cost now. Putting together the playard is pretty simple, but make sure you read the instructions in the booklet as you go because some parts are not quite as obvious as others. The only other improvement I would make to this is that the napper/ changing pad gets caught in the mattress a little bit as you reverse them since they are so close to it. Maybe raising the mapper a little bit from the top of the playard would do the trick! Overall, I would definitely recommend buying this if you're looking for something simple, practical and affordable!

First of all, adorable color combo and pattern. Very easy to set up and break down. The napper and changer are so easy to flip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NannyMom Multipurpose product
We used this product with our first child who is now 5.5 months old. We used the napper as a "bassinet" for the first weeks so she could sleep in our room. We have since been using the bassinet feature when we travel with her. It's great for putting her to sleep and not needing to bend all the way down to the bottom. The changer was also useful when my 10 month old nephew was here and we needed a second changing station for when one child was sleeping in the room with the changing table. The only thing we haven't used is the toy bar. We have a play mat that worked better for us.
I love that this product is a multi-use product that grows with the child. She will continue to use this pack 'n play for a long time. The napper/changer, bassinet, and toy bar do not pack into the "box" which would be my only complaint. I keep them in a plastic bag to avoid dust and dirt getting on them.
As far as putting it together and taking it apart goes, it's like any other standard pack 'n play. It may take a couple of tries to learn it but as long as you read the directions it's pretty easy and quick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bunny excellent pack n play
We bought this pack n play to replace a babytrend one that we baught when our first child was born and i am so glad i switched to graco .firstly i could never set the bt up easily it always took forever the graco is so easy it takes seconds to get the sides locked in place, secondly the graco goes down so easily to no more getting my husband to push the buttons for me just lift, squeeze and drop love it. Thirdly the napper/changing station love the fact that when my little man was 1-3 months old he could sleep in the napper and it helped with his acid reflux because of the slight raised back. Most babys could probably use it longer but my boy is 3 months and just about to start wearing 6-9 month cloths heis very long. One last thing we are a military family and this pack n play has already been taken accross 7 states 6 hotels and been used non stop for 6 weeks now (were moving) with no issues absolutely love it and will recommend graco as a first choice to everyone i know who is expecting.

The portable napper works as a bassinet! The reversible napper/changer makes changing much easier, especially since we ended up on the floor with a changing pad so often! Light and movable- all you need!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Melissa16 Love the top netting and bassinet/changing table
We have been using this product for the past 6 months and love it. It folds so conveniently and the netting for small babies that are too big for the bassinet is perfect! The only thing I didn't like was that the bassinet attachment did not come off to be cleaned and was white. Needless to say, ours is now stained from a diaper explosion! We wrapped a tight swaddled blanket around the bassinet after that and it worked just fine without worrying about more stains. The bassinet section was a pain to put together with the piping but our baby absolutely loved it and slept better in that than he he did in our expensive bassinet! Overall, we love this pack n play and hope to use it for many more years!

Rated 4 out of 5 by lhoopie Not very portable
Nice play yard, but as far as portability goes I don't see how you can get all pieces in the travel bag. So you end up with the main playard in the bag and the napper/changer and toy bar in another bag- unless we are really missing something.
I also was hoping we could use the napper/changer without the bassinet part set up as we prob won't use this in bassinet mode. For my one month old son we currently use this playard to keep our curious 70 lb dog away from the baby when he's in his bouncer (the playard acting like a little cage with the bouncer safely in the bottom in the "toddler" setting- which my best friend came up with the idea to keep her 50 lb pup and 18 mo twins away from her newborn!) at home and the grandparent's houses.
Of course as a toddler playard this will get plenty of use but we aren't there yet! I also wish we registered for a model with vibration as my son really loves that- which is why we mainly use his bouncer inside the toddler playard right now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by amblurr Great Features
Love that the napper and changer are reversible and not another bulky thing to take up space. Switched to the always trusted Graco brand from another brand that had all the bells and whistles however i felt it was unsafe because of the way the boards were placed, loved that it was completely all washable but after putting my son in it it was uncomfortably hard and leaned in places it shouldn't. My mother in law and my mother both had a Graco brand playard and they looked safe and when checking them out at the store we too decided to go with this trusted brand. SO HAPPY WITH OUR DECISION TO PURCHASE GRACO. The whole playard was easy to assemble and break down folds right back up perfectly and goes into the supplied carry bag very neatly. Love that there is an optional bar of plush toys for the child to look at. Checks off all of the basic necessities required for spending the night away from home or while LO is still in the room with us until he is transitioned to his own room, with number one being SAFE!
