Most Helpful Reviews on the Graco Pack ‘n Play Travel Play Yard

  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 8/5/2012 – My baby girl is 4 months old now and I must say this is a great product. Great price, very easy to set up, and I love the gender neutral design (not as baby-ish as other patterns)…. It took about 5-10 minutes to set up and break down. For those who said it takes longer my advice is to read the directions. I love the size of this; it’s not too big and doesn’t have all of the extra frills that take up space. I did purchase an extra mattress pad because the pad that comes with this (and all other pack and plays) is quite thin. (read more and buy it at Walmart.com)
  • 4.0 out of 5 stars(4/5) – 12/26/2007 – After returning a much more expensive product with all of the bells and whistles and a similar product by Evenflo, I did a lot of research on which playard would be best for us…. The bassinet just snaps on the sides and doesn’t require a lot of metal bars, like others do. There are also buttons on each side to release them for folding, which I find easier than the things you have to push from underneath and can’t even see. I would only go with Graco. Also, the padding is a bit softer than these other brands. It’s still not really comfortable for our baby, but I just put a blanket between the pad and the sheet, and he seems to sleep fine. This is where I take off a star…. (read more and buy it at Amazon.com)
  • 2.0 out of 5 stars(2/5) – 6/13/2008 – Graco makes great products, but this one was not up to par. The main problem was that this particular Pack ‘n Play doesn’t have the four corner tabs that the floor sort of snaps into. When our very petite daughter would stand at the edge, her weight would cause the floor to slip and she would slowly drop a few inches down. Life threatening? No. But it was not very stable….

  • 4.0 out of 5 stars(4/5) – 7/18/2012 – We bought this for an out of town trip and have used it everyday since! It is a great, safe place for our daughter to play when I need to step out of the room for a minute and she slept great in it on our out of town, overnight trip. And it is so easy to set up and take down!…  (read more and buy it at Diapers.com)
  • 4.0 out of 5 stars(4/5) – 3/19/2012 – LOVE this pack ‘n play! I’m actually really disappointed that we haven’t had more excuses to use it! The raised sleeping surface is great and feels really secure. It’s very easy to set up and transport, just like other Gracos. I was concerned we’d be disappointed not having a diaper change or basinet insert, but with the elevated surface option, I don’t miss them at all since it basically meets those needs, especially since this one is so much less expensive without all of those other gadgets…. (read more and buy it at Babiesrus.com)
