Most Helpful Reviews on the Joovy Room2 Play Yard

  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 10/26/2009 – We bought this when my twins turned 4 months. The regular pack-n-play with the bassinet just wasn’t enough room for them. We got this in, and they have slept every night, through the night since then. I absolutely love it! The twins are now 7 months (and 23 lbs. each!) and they still have enough room for both of them to roll and twist and turn in there. It can be a bit of a pain to pack and set up….  (read more and buy it at
  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 11/4/2009 – This is a really great play yard that is safe, strong and stable. I did a lot of research in search of a suitable “containment” area for my busy one year old and am really pleased with this choice. This thing is built super strong… It is spacious enough to put several toddlers in it at the same time and because it is bigger my son seems to tolerate playing in it for longer periods of time. It is also very easy to set-up and collapse down since I mostly use it on the weekends. Yes, it is heavier than the Pack n’ Play, but I also know I will get several more years of use out of this play yard with a rough and tumble growing boy. So, keep the Pack n’ Play for portability and trips out to grandma’s house, but get the Joovy Room 2 for every day use in and around the house. (read more and buy it at
  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 2/13/2013 – Bough this because my 4 month old has started rolling so I wanted something to keep in my family room to contain him. The typical “pack n plays” all seemed too small for me (I already own one) so I was happy to find this playard. Just got it yesterday and already love it! Put it together while my son was asleep and put him in it first thing this morning and he has been in there off and on all day playing, napping, etc. It’s big enough that I put his play mat and other toys in there and he still has room to roll around and enough open space to sleep. Some people said this is too heavy and hard to put together. I didn’t find this to be true at all. I am a small framed woman and I carried it into the house by myself and it literally took me 5 min to set up…. (read more and buy it at
  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 4/27/2011 – good quality, nice, simple and matches to modern homes. Very roomy. if your space is small, this might be too big, otherwise, large enough space for kids to crawl in it, stand up, safely land. (read more and buy it at
  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 1/21/2013 – We have the black one and used it for vacation for our then 18 month old. She’s big for her age and had outgrown her Chicco placard but we didn’t want to put her in a real bed to sleep. This worked perfect, very roomy for her. Set up is a piece of cake as long as you read the instructions and don’t try to wing it! Please note, it is quite heavy.  (read more and buy it at
