We’ve got a new baby coming in a little over a month (or maybe less if I’m lucky!), and that means we’re breaking out the baby gear again! With Maggie, we were given a pack and play from my brother-in-law and sister-in-law that worked GREAT but it’s pink–so not the best boy color. I was excited when Graco offered to send me a Graco Pack N Play Playard with Reversible Napper and Changer!
Features of the Graco Pack N Play Playard with Reversible Napper and Changer
This playard is the first ever playard that has a Reversible Napper & Changer all-in-one. The Newborn Napper Station, which is available in a number of beautifully-styled fabrics, cuddles your baby for naps. It’s the perfect place for them to still feel snuggles outside of your arms. The changing table provides time-saving convenience so you don’t have to run to the nursery for diaper changes. The secure attachment allows for a safe and easy switch between napper and changer, and back again. For easy cleanup, the changer features wipe-clean fabrics that resist mess.
This playard is designed to transition with your child as he or she grows from a newborn to an infant to a toddler. The removable, full-size bassinet provides an extra-comfy spot for your infant to nap. As your child begins to get mobile, the Graco Pack N Play Playard with Reversible Napper and Changer easily converts to a portable playard. The toy bar on this playard features soft toys to amuse your little one. Airy mesh on all sides provides maximum ventilation.
When it’s time to pack the playard away, the signature Graco push-button fold makes closing your playard quick and hassle-free. The Graco Pack N Play Playard also comes with a convenient carrying bag for no-fuss travel and storage.
My Graco Pack N Play Playard with Reversible Napper and Changer Review
The Graco Pack N Play Playard with Reversible Napper and Changer is available in 6 different fabric/color combinations. I drooled over the Gecko line and was so happy when they told me that one was available to send me for a review! When it arrived and I took it out of the package, I was even more in love with the colors! It’s perfect and just what I wanted for our little guy!
So, now onto one of the most important things–set up! Setting up the basic Pack N Play took me about 3 minutes. If you’ve set up a Pack N Play before, this one is no different. Super, super easy! After I had it all set up, Maggie, of course, was eager to get in and try it out. She was able to stretch out all the way for sleeping, with room to grow.
Next I put the bassinet feature on the playard. Again, this was super easy and only took me about another 3-4 minutes. First, you’ll drop in the bassinet support, followed by the playard mattress pad.
Putting the Reversible Napper and Changer portion together took me the longest–closer to 10 minutes–but about 4 of those minutes were spent looking for one of the pieces I couldn’t find. I looked and looked only to discover finally that it was directly behind me! Now that I know how to put it together, I think I could do it in about 3 minutes.
Oh yes, last but not least I added on the cute toy bar. That probably took an additional 1-2 minutes. I love the finished product! It looks so nice, I hate having to take it down until our baby arrives next month! I know we’re going to get a lot of use out of it!
The Napper side of the reversible unit is really soft! I love the fabric they chose to use! I can’t wait to let our little guy snuggle up in there! I was just telling my husband tonight how nice it will be to have this for him to sleep in on our main floor when my daughter is napping upstairs. You never know how long infants will nap for and the slightest sound seems to wake Maggie up!
It is really quick and easy to flip it over to the changing side, which is made of a nice, easy-to-wipe fabric. Again, it will be nice to have this on the main floor of our townhouse for diaper changes so I won’t have to run up and down the stairs a few times a day.
I still haven’t mentioned one of my other favorite features of this Pack N Play. It might seem like a small feature to some, but there is a place on the outside of the pad for storing the instructions. This is GENIUS and I’d like to hug whoever thought of this! I hate trying to find a place to store instructions and this makes it so easy to keep them with the product! I love, love, LOVE this!!
This Pack N Play is easy to disassemble and it comes with a carrying case for easy storage and travel! Because it’s made by Graco, a company that’s been around since the 1940s, you know it’s going to be well-made and last for a while!
I honestly couldn’t be happier with this Graco Pack N Play and wouldn’t change a thing on it! With an extremely affordable suggested price of just $99.99, I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a playard for their baby! You can find it for sale at Amazon.com or add it to your Target Baby Registry.
*I was provided this Pack N Play free of charge by Graco in order to facilitate this review. I was not required to give it a positive review, in fact, I was specifically asked to give it an honest review–whether positive or negative! We truly are in love with this Pack N Play. *
