My husband and I recently got a sample of Joovy’s Room Playard( $269) to test out for our baby daughter, Miranda. It has just about any feature that we could want.
The Room has a playpen, bassinet, changing station, and storage compartments. The compartments are perfect for baby wipes, diapers, extra sleep sacks, or toys. For those groggy, late night feedings, you will have everything you need at your fingertips. There is even a built-in nightlight. (Read More after the jump).
By far, the best feature is the MP3 jack that allows us to play our daughter’s favorite musical artist, Bob Marley. It also comes with several preset nursery rhymes.
It is ideal for any nursery or living space—even our cramped condo. The Room has two wheels that make moving it from room to room a snap. It can also be folded up and placed in a travel bag for daytrips or our next jaunt to the Caribbean (a girl can dream, right?).
In addition to these wonderful features, Joovy has also thought about safety and practicality. The Room is very sturdy and made out of a durable nylon. The changing table comes with a safety strap and can hold a 25 pound infant. The changing table is made of vinyl, which makes the occasional accident a breeze to cleanup.
The Joovy Room Playard comes in three gender neutral colors: blueberry, black, and orange.
