Most Helpful Reviews on the Joovy Room Playard with Bassinet and Changing Table

  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 10/28/2011 – … I researched and browsed dozens of pack and plays and decided on the Joovy because 1. I loved the color and sleek design 2. I liked the belted changing table 3. It had all the features I was looking for. My 7 month old is super wiggly and loves flipping over, but she can’t when I belt her in!… The price tag didn’t sit well with me at first (I think it’s the most expensive pack and play out there? One of the most expensive anyway..), but I really do believe it was worth the price! Looking at my Joovy seriously makes me so happy! My baby loves it too! (read more and buy it at Amazon.com)
  • 2.0 out of 5 stars(2/5) – 2/12/2012 – … Let me start with the positives. The construction is very solid and secure. All frame parts seem to be more stable and secure than others on the market I have seen. The storage area has many cubbies and securely fastens to the base to hold a good amount of supply weight. The changing table is very solid…. Here are the bad items.1\ The mattress is horrible and we felt unsafe. There is a lot of extra material in the folds and when we placed our baby on the mattress… 2\ The Joovy comes with it’s own special fitted sheet…. 3\ Fitted sheet use when we are not using the bassinet is very annoying too…. (read more and buy it at Amazon.com)
  • 4.0 out of 5 stars(4/5) – 4/21/2012 – I love this Joovy playard. I’d give it 5 stars but I am not convinced that I like the mattress cover. It is a little large for the mattress, and I wish it was a snugger fit. And I wish you could purchase a second one at a more reasonable price. This is honestly the only thing that made me not give it 5 stars. It’s better than the other playards we considered-in terms of appearance, stability, features, and size. (read more and buy it at BuyBuyBaby.com)
  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 5/25/2012 – I love it, it’s much larger than other playards! The changing table is awesome! Cleaning the baby and if there’s any mess left behind you can wipe it all down in sec. It’s nice and wide, with the safety straps. It’s not flashy, very neutral so you can have it anywhere in your house and not feel like your kids are redecorating. The biggest plus is, that it’s SOO easy to dismount and assemble…. You won’t feel like your playing tetris. While packing, and it’s super light!… (read more and buy it at Babiesrus.com)
  • 4.0 out of 5 stars(4/5) – 4/4/2012 – I absolutely love the changing station – it’s nice and wide and not like a cup. I also love the contemporary style of it. I don’t really use the storage piece. I did find that the play yard bed padding is a little hard, like you can feel the bars below, but my child doesn’t seem to mind. I do wish it would come in a better variety of colors – or at least the fitted sheets could be colored. It’s used as his bed due to space. (read more and buy it at Babiesrus.com)
