When it comes to baby gear an awesome playard is an absolute necessity. If you plan to do any traveling at all – even just over night trips to a family members house – a playard will be a life saver. Plus you can use them in the newborn/infant stage through the toddler years. I have gone through quite a few playards with Alleigh and Kaelyn, but none of them had everything I was looking for until I found the Joovy Room. If you’re looking for a top of the line playard that is made to last then the Joovy Room is definitely for you.
The Joovy Room has so many awesome features, but aside from that I absolutely love the design of this playard. Seriously, have you ever seen a playard that looks as sleek and stylish as this one? The curved legs and bright orange color give the Joovy Room a pop that you won’t find anywhere else. Aside from me just loving the color orange it also serves a great function. Alleigh and Kaelyn love playing outside and so it’s nice to set the playard up in our yard for Willow to nap in and with that nice bright color the girls would have to be blind folded to not see it which means no worries about them running into it with their bikes or power wheels, hehe.
Since Willow is almost three weeks old I am currently using the Joovy Room with the full size bassinet which holds up to 15 pounds. It is very easy to set up and I love that it comes with 100% cotton sheet that is not only heavy-duty and made to last, but also super soft. Plus the sheet works on the playard whether you are using it in the bassinet or on the playard floor. I also like that the side walls of the bassinet are mesh to allow for lots of air flow.
The parent organizer is truly amazing! I have never seen such a large parent organizer on a playard until now. In fact is has 9 storage compartments that can hold up to 9 pounds of everything you need to take care of your little one. I love this organizer because since we cloth diaper a small organizer designed to hold disposable diapers just isn’t going to cut it. I need space for prefolds, covers, wet bag, wipes, toys, blankets, and more. Joovy definitely came through for me.
We all know how much newborns poop, hehe. And so that means we are changing lots of diapers – luckily the removable changing table has made all of those diaper changes super easy. Plus when Willow sneak attacks us and causes a mess that’s not a problem either since the top is made of vinyl and can easily be wiped down. Oh and there is even more storage on the changing table – four pockets!
Plus the Joovy Room has some way awesome features that I never expected to ever see on a playard. Such as the built-in MP3 jack with speaker and convenient pocket that perfectly holds Dustin’s Zune. And no worries about the music being too loud for babies delicate ears – the volume only is soft enough for a newborn, but loud enough that when setting next to the playard mom or dad can also enjoy the tunes. Dustin is already introducing Willow to his taste in music…. oh boy, hehe. Another great feature is the night light which is situated to be functional in either the bassinet or playard set up. I like the ability to check on baby at night or even change a diaper without turning bright lights on and completely waking them up.
When purchasing a product from Joovy you can be confident you are getting a high quality piece of baby gear. The Joovy Room is made from the highest grade fabric (600D Nylon) available on the market which is super strong, durable, and stain resistant. All parents know how important it is for fabric on baby gear to be stain resistant! Oh and there are also two wheels so that you can easily move the Joovy Room around – this is especially convenient if you are using the playard inside. Plus the Joovy Room packs up in a convenient zippered travel bag for when you are on the go. I was able to fit everything inside the bag except for the changing table – though if I disassembled it I *might* be able to fit that in too…. it was just easier to leave it together.
And so if you are looking for a playard that has everything you need plus more I highly suggest checking out the Joovy Room. Just look how peaceful Willow looks napping in the bassinet. And if orange just isn’t your color the Joovy Room is also available in black or blueberry. Be sure to visit the Joovy website to see all the other great products they have available – I’m positive you will find something you can’t live without.
