Graco Pack ‘n Play Playard Sport Review


Graco Pack 'n Play Playard Sport

I (Kim) received the Graco Pack ‘n Play Playard Sport at no cost to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.

Spending time outside is what my daughter enjoys most. She squeals with delight at the thought of all the fun activities that lay ahead when I open the door to our backyard . But, on most days the morning dew just seems to last forever and then the rain, oh, don’t get me started on how often that seems to happen.  These obstacles don’t seem to mean anything to my daughter, but to me, they make it unpleasant to sit outside in the grass and have our fun mommy and daughter moments. I knew I had to come up with a solution and Graco provided me with the ultimate answer!

Graco’s Pack ‘n Play Playard Sport is flat out amazing! They thought of everything with this playard and I couldn’t be more excited to tell you all about it! The quality of the material and all the parts is impressive. This playard was built to last and it’s super cute too!

From set up to take down I didn’t have any issues setting it up by myself. The product only weighs 12 lbs and comes with a handled carrying bag for easy on-the-go use. Even the handle on this carrying bag is adjustable… they really did think of everything! I was really surprised at how easy it was to set up. It looks so amazing from the picture, I thought to myself, uh oh, this is going to be a lot of work, but it wasn’t! It took me just a few minutes (under 5) from taking the product out of the bag to setting it up. The take-down process was just as easy and I always love it when I don’t need to ask for help. That means I can use it any time my daughter or I want, which is great!

The mesh fabric is wonderful for adding an airy feel and providing excellent ventilation. I love that my daughter can see out and it’s not closed off and stuffy. The base of this playard is fantastic! In fact, right before I went to set this up, it started to sprinkle. The rain stopped a short while later so I thought this was the perfect time to test this feature. Sure enough, it passed, and with flying colors! The base stayed dry and so did my daughter.

I love the UV50 protection-lined canopy and I couldn’t be happier that it has 3 ways of use. If you decide not use it, it is easily stored in an inside pocket and ready when needed. The canopy can be fully opened for maximum coverage, or pulled back half way for partial shade. From a cloudy day to a day full of bright sun, your little one will be sitting comfy, protected and happy!

This playard would be perfect for any adventure! The latching system makes for a fast and secure setup and the storage pockets are great for taking along all the necessities you need for your little one. I stored a few of her favorite toys and books for our time out in the backyard. It would be great for holding a towel, sand toys and sunscreen for the beach. Toys and books easily fit inside for a backyard adventure, sporting event, camping trip, or any other fun outdoor activity. The possibilities seem endless!

I think this would also be great to use indoors as well. It would make a fun play tent with the super ingenious zip-open front door! My daughter enjoyed going in and out of the door and having her toys do the same. She had quite the giggles when she decided to play peek-a-boo with me and her stuffed animals.

My daughter was having so much fun in the playard, I just had to get in! This is only designed for children up to 35” in height, and obviously I know I exceeded it, but it was the kid in me wanting to try it out too. I gotta tell you, it’s awesome!! It’s sturdy, the airflow was great, and it kept the annoying bugs away that were bothering me when I was outside the playard. I read my daughter a book and we played peek-a-boo with daddy. It was so much fun!  Now, I only have one complaint… Graco… why haven’t you made one for adults? I am ready to go glamping!

  1. I’ve been thinking about getting on these since we like to go outside once the weather finally cools down here in Texas, but need the protection from the mosquitoes. I like that the top is removable and seems easy to assemble.

  2. Our family loves to be on outdoors and this Graco playard is a great thing to have! It’s compact when folded and has a big room for my daughter to play! I love the size, appearance and the quality of Graco Children’s Products. Thanks for sharing this very informative product review! I enjoyed reading this blog.

  3. I especially like the SPF 50 canopy! It looks like a great item for the beach or the lake – keeping the sun and bugs off of baby, but he can still be a part of the fun! I also appreciate that its lightweight and easy enough for 1 person to set up/take down.
    Thanks for the helpful review.

  4. I love how easy it is to set up. It would be perfect for my youngest who will be one next summer to keep her contained when out for family parties or just out in the yard

  5. I love being outside and think this would be a great safe and protected area for my son. I’ve been thinking about purchasing one of these for next summer. Thanks for the review.

  6. As avid gardeners, having safe areas outside for our babies and tots to play in is essential for us. This looks like an exceptional play yard!

  7. I love this. I love spending time outside in the garden or up in the canyon, this would make me able to enjoy being outdoors without worrying about what my little baby will get in to or worry about her falling in the river. And I love how heavy duty it seems yet is super compact and easy to set up! I would love this!

  8. I love this!! We have so any bugs here in Arizona & this would be awesome to help avoid my little one not get any mosquito bites & have fun outside at the same time!!

  9. This looks amazing! I had never seen anything like this, so thanks for the review. We go camping frequently, and this would help with all the challenges of camping with an infant/toddler- sun protection, but protection, containment, keeping her away from eating too many bugs and dirt…

  10. I would love to win this for my niece. She has spoken of wanting Graco products and would be thrilled to have this for her baby, Hunter. She and her hubby are outdoor people and with this Graco assembly, baby Hunter could easily come along

  11. This is such an awesome play yard, I have always wanted them to make one with a cover! I love that it has SPF coverage as well, perfect for outdoor activities! 🙂
