I wish I’d had this play yard 8 years ago when I had my first baby, because it’s not just a play yard, it’s a bassinet, a changing station, and an organizer, too!
Eight years ago, the play yard I had was useful, but it wasn’t beautiful, the tubes were always sliding out when I tried to pack it, the changing table was always in danger of falling off, and there was no organizer.
The two things that caught my attention first were the Joovy Room’s vibrant color and modern design. The play yard is beautiful, even stylish, and it is comfortable. If you are looking for a great, portable bassinet/play yard/changing table, let me show you why I like this one so much.
First, it comes with a great bag which carries everything but the changing table. Portability is one of the Room’s many great features. When my babies were little, we traveled with our play yard constantly, we knew our babies would sleep great in it no matter where we were as if in their own bed. The Room is easy to take with you, too, but it also comes with many great features my old one didn’t.
Another great feature of its bag is it has a separate compartment for the organizer and bassinet tubes, so everything has its place in the bag. I was able to fit the sheets here as well.
As you can see, the instructions are right there on the mattress. You won’t need them often because it is very easy to set up, but it is convenient for quick reference or in case others need to set it up.
There’s a place for the instruction manual, too. Usually, I have my manuals for everything in an office cabinet, but with the Joovy Room, the manual is conveniently nearby.
The mattress has 8 velcro straps which pass through the fabric and attach to the bottom of the play yard, helping keep the mattress in place.
And don’t you love the organizer? I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, I wish, I just wish I’d had the Room 8 years ago. The organizer fits perfectly and can hold everything you need to take care of your baby. It is always better to have what you need handy when you have a little one. With the Room, you just need to extend your hand and grab it!
And check out this great feature, you can plug in your iPod and play music for your baby! It also has a night light.
The changing table comes with its own organizer perfect for diapers, wipes, diaper rash ointment, and other necessities.
Here is something I really appreciate, the changing table snugly attaches to the body of the play yard.
And this is how it looks with the bassinet in place.
The set up is easy. I did it in just 15 minutes from start to finish the first time. But it will be faster now that I’ve done it, probably about 10 minutes. I invite you to check out all the features and colors here.
Isn’t it a beautiful and convenient multi-purpose play yard? In my opinion, a play yard is a great benefit when you have a baby, and if it looks and works as beautifully as The Room, well, that’s icing on the cake.
