  • Usability
  • Safety
  • Pricing


It's portable, it's convenient, it's great. Yet, the chances are the package you'll get will lack some parts.


This is not just a playard, this is so much more. Your baby could live in it for the first few months. It is possible to nap, sleep, play in it, and you could change your baby`s diapers and clothes too.


The playard itself is pretty heavy, but you can take the travel bed or the changing station anywhere you want. If you prefer to have your newborn next to you, just bring the travel bed to your bedroom. Or maybe you need to change the diaper, while being in the kitchen, use the portable changing station for it. There is no need to put a full-size baby bunk in your bedroom or run to another part of your house to change the diaper.


Just turn the vibration on and calm your little one down, if your baby suffers with stomachache, toothache or bad mood. Napping and sleeping is much easier this way too. To save the batteries, there is a timer for 10, 20 or 30 minutes.


There is an overhead toybar with bright toys in this set, which you an easily remove and put away or put it back any time you need to attract the attention of your baby and add some entertainment. Also, there is Soothing Suite Deluxe, which provides music and nature sounds, which are great distractions for newborns.


Yes, this is a product for your baby`s comfort, but it should also be a pleasure for the parents` eyes. Graco design team made sure that this station look is simple and stylish to fit in different homes. As soon as you get your package and locate it in one of your rooms, you will immediately appreciate the design. Different colours are available.
