Mattress Bunches When Washed
I bought this playard for the washable mattress. Great feature, right? Unfortunately, when you wash the mattress, the batting inside gets bunched up, creating ridges and an uneven surface. I contact Chicco USA reporting this and asking where I could *purchase* a replacement part. I don't mind purchasing a new mattress, but it seems silly to have to buy another playard. The company took days and days to address my inquiry and then sent a noncommittal response asking for seven degrees of information, documentation and pictures, saying that when they received this information they would assess whether and how they could help me. All of this when my inquiry centered around the *purchase* of a replacement part. Meanwhile, I am not getting a speedy resolution to this problem. So, mattress bunches when washed and customer service is unhelpful and slow. Tell Chicco *that's* efficiency.

My husband and I are first time parents. We knew we wanted a playard and picked this one because all the things that it can do. We currently use it as a bassinet for our 3 week old son. We had it set up with the changing table, but removed it since our house is not that large. It is easier to just take him to his room to change him. We love that the mattress is padded and machine washable. I bought playard sheets to put over it anyway and have had to clean those a few times. I can tell that this is a product that we will be using for a long time. I also like that is is gray and not some crazy pattern. We keep it in our living room, so I'm glad it doesn't stand out.
We did think that this would be easy to take to grandparents houses, but when it is in the bassinet mode, it is a pain to take apart and pack up. It will be easier when we are just using it as a pack and play. We purchased the Gracco Travel Lite Crib for him to sleep in our room and to take to grandparents houses.

Difficult to assemble but good quality
We bought this play yard to use in lieu of a bassinet in our bedroom for our newborn. The assembly was a pain. Be sure to read ALL instructions before assembling; my husband made this mistake and had to start over.
Once it's put together, it's a good, sturdy piece. It isn't, however, easy to set up/take down and it's pretty heavy so will not be the easiest for traveling.
Our daughter has had no problems sleeping in it from day one. The night light feature is a dream and we use it often, and our daughter also seems to like the vibration. The one thing I don't care for is the "music." It's a weird mix of nature, music and what is supposed to sound like a heartbeat (though it's pretty sad sounding), and it only plays for a few minutes. There is a remote that you could use to turn it on again, but it would be better if it just played longer to begin with, and it would be nice if you could select which "tune" you want to play. We don't really use that feature because of this.

This Playard is great, it offers a lot such as the changing table,storage on the side and easy to put together. It offers music, and night sounds which are great however and the reason why I gave it a 4 is the vibration doesn't really vibrate a whole lot. I turn it on more for the noise it makes. Which is similar to a white noise, also the night light is not very good, kinda of useless but it does bring a remote control to turn on music, vibration, and light. I keep it on my nightstand and is great so you don't have to get up.

My husband and I purchased this in place of a bassinet to put in our bedroom for when the baby is born. It is a really nice playard and he said it was pretty easy to put together. It doesn't take up as much space as I had originally thought it would and it comes with a changing table area and a little mobile that you can take out and place on the floor with the baby. I really like the colors and the style of it. It also has some music settings that you can play for the baby.

Easy to put up and break down. Love the sounds and little light. The vibrate feature doesnt really vibrate the whole crib however. You definitely need to buy a different mattress because what they supply is basically a hard plastic sheet with cloth over it. Overall I am happy with my purchase

Good and difficult
We like all the features of the pack n play. We like that is has a changing table and bassinet. The only downside is the difficulty of taking it down and putting it up. It does not make it easy to travel with it whenwe need to.
