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.

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.

I bought this for my daughter who is 1 1/2 now and am using it for my second child now. The newborn napper is the best thing! Both children love 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!!

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DLD1104 Beautiful Playard!
I love this playard! My 18-month-old son does as well. He is too big now to use the cradle portion, but I use the play yard for him to play during the day when I need to get housework done. I love the tall sides and I don’t have to worry about him scaling the sides to get out. Not only is this play yard absolutely gorgeous in the overall design, but it has so many features that are useful! The fabric used is beautiful, it is really soft, and is a cozy texture for little ones to be surrounded by.
It is also very easy to wipe clean if there are any spills or messes while snacking or drinking. By far, my favorite feature is the nightlight and sound machine that makes a soothing place for my son to nap. I like that this sound machine can be removed and used anywhere else in the house when baby is sleeping, even if he isn’t using the play yard to sleep each time. My son loves the music and nature sounds, especially the car ride effects and the lullabies. The ability to control the volume is great as well.
My son is 18 months old and he is really lightweight, so I am able to use the changing table feature with him still, as we have a few more pounds to go before he maxes out the weight limit of 25 lbs. I love having the organizer on the side with three cubbies to keep diapers, wipes, creams, and extra supplies I may need throughout the day so I don’t have to always run up to his room for diaper changes.
We live in a town home and this has been great to have on our main living floor, but I find it really easy to take it from floor to floor in our home whenever I need to. This has also been great for travel on a recent family trip to the beach. The convenient carrying bag fit into our XL SUV with no issues at all and set up wherever we use it is pretty simple. The initial set up new from the box took us about 30 minutes .
This play yard is really a great piece of baby gear to have! I could even see some wanting to use this as the baby’s crib instead of purchasing a crib right away. The bed skirt on the bottom really makes it look more like a crib or toddler bed and it is all designed to very sleek looking. Since my son is older, we weren’t able to use the basinet. I can’t wait to use the basinet portion for our next baby because I am thrilled with this play yard. I highly recommend for any parents who are in the market. In exchange for my honest review, I was provided this product for free.

I received this play yard as a gift from my sister for my baby shower and I have got to say I just love it! We have it set up in our room right next to our bed which makes sleeping at night much more relaxing. The audio/night light feature is wonderful! Baby will not fall asleep without the nature sounds playing and when she fusses in the middle of the night all I have to do is turn on the low light night light and see what's making her uncomfortable without fully waking her up. I love the removable bassinet part, it makes nap and cleaning time a breeze because I can just bring it around the house with me. Another wonderful feature is the vibration it has! Oh how it's helped when she gets gassy! A few minutes in there with the vibration setting on and I have a happy farts-a-lot baby girl! Also when we are on the go packing it up is so easy! Did I mention it's also easy to clean?! I would definitely recommend this product to expecting mothers!!!
