InGenuity™ SleepEasy™ Playard Review and Giveway! (ends 1/22)

To celebrate 300 likes on my Facebook page, I'm hosting a pretty awesome giveaway!

I received this rockin' InGenuity™ Sleep Easy™ Playard to review when Baby Brother was about 3 weeks old. It's set up in our living room and a great place to lay Baby Brother while I tend to Sweet P. It also has a changing table attachment, which we LOVE, but I may be getting ahead of myself here!

Bright Starts carries a variety of infant and toddler toys, playmats, bouncers/swings and playards. I was delighted to do this review/giveaway because I've loved other products by Bright Starts. We didn't have a playard with Sweet P (we just borrowed from friends or used the one at my mom's house when we visited) and now I REALLY wish we had! Having a safe place for your little one to sleep or play while you cook, clean or take a deep breath is so important. It's also a great way to keep your 2nd baby from getting trampled by your first!

InGenuity™ Sleep Easy™ Playard product description and features:

The patented SleepEasy™ incline feature sets this playard apart!  The adjustable bassinet offers 2 sleep positions:  Flat or slightly inclined allowing mom to choose the position that works best for baby.  For added comfort and entertainment, the playard includes a soothing sound station™ and a fabric toy bar with 2 plush toys.  

There's plenty of storage for baby's necessities with Store Right Solutions™.  The Just Right Height™ elevated changing table easily pivots away to provide easy access to baby and a comfortable changing experience.  Quick fold and go with the One Less Step™ feature makes this playard highly portable and easy to take along.

  • SleepEasy™ incline with 2 sleep positions:  Flat or slightly inclined
  • Store Right Solutions™:  Removable organizer tray and lower zip storage area for baby's necessities
  • One Less Step™ for quick fold and go without removing the bassinet
  • Soothing Sounds Station™ that includes 5 melodies and 3 nature sounds
  • Just Right Height™ elevated changing table easily pivots out of the way
  • Fabric toy bar with 2 plush toys
  • Travel bag included

I would recommend this playard to a friend over and over. The fact that the bassinet folds down with the rest of the playard makes travel simple. We took the playard with us over Christmas and it was simple to assemble and disassemble. You do have to pull up a bit on the sides before pushing in the buttons, but once you figure that out it's relatively easy. The bedding portion and bassinet pieces all fit into the travel bag for reduced baggage when traveling. I do wish the changing table could also fold down to fit in the travel bag.

The adjustable bassinet has also been awesome for Baby Brother because he's had major congestion since he came home from the hospital. The slight elevation helps keep him from getting too congested while he naps. Zipping and unzipping the bassinet to elevate the top is a cinch! I also love that the zippers are hidden and not a hazard for baby.

We didn't have a changing table with Sweet P either so that has been a great addition to our baby gear. The height is great on my back and the organizer tray holds plenty of diapers, our wipes and burp cloths. The changing table easily swings out while baby is in the playard.

The storage and easy access zipper is probably my favorite part of the playard. We have extra diapers, burp clothes, wipes, blankets and our playmat stored underneath the bassinet portion. I'm really going to miss that feature when we remove the bassinet!

The Soothing Sounds Station was a huge surprise for me. Most baby gear has music that sounds like a midi file and gets annoying after 5 minutes. I could listen to the Soothing Sounds Station melodies while I sleep! The nature sounds are also very calming.

Baby Brother loves to watch the two stuffed animals on the toy bar and I like that the bar can be moved around. The neutral colors are great and the playard doesn't stick out like a sore thumb in our living room (okay, it does, but not in a primary colors kinda way!) The playard is sturdy and would definitely work for subsequent children! We'll definitely be using this for years to come both in the home and while traveling. The playard is available at several retailers, including Babies R Us.
