As I get ready to have another baby (No I am not pregnant…Yet!), I have been thinking a lot about where this future little one is going to sleep. My two girls share a room and my little man is in his own room. My husband has been right so far about the sex of our three kids, so if he is right with this one, he'll be sharing a room with his big brother!
While trying to get the sleeping arrangements figured out, I was having a bit of a dilemma on what kind of bed I was going to use for our new arrival. Having reviewed and love Joovy products, I turned to them in this crisis! Okay, maybe this is not a crisis… but all moms want the best for their kids right?
And… Bingo! This is why I LOVE Joovy! Their products are innovative, high quality, useful, extremely practical and they look so good!
I received The Joovy Room in black and it is beyond nice. I've seen a lot of playards over the years and this one has definitely "elevated the playard to the next level!" First of all, it is a bassinet, changing station and playard, all-in-one, and everything fits in the bag but the parent organizer, so it's super easy to pack up and move it, store it, or use it on the go. Yes all of that fits in the bag!
First thing I noticed was the 100% cotton sheet that fits the bassinet and the playard. There are three slits on each corner, so the velcro straps fit through the holes, then they go through the bottom of the playard, attaching everything securely down. This was a big safety perk for me! I have always been uneasy about having the bottom piece loose, especially since my friend told me that her daughter some how got underneath it one night while sleeping. Ah!
Setting up the playard and getting the mattress secured down was very easy, but if you do have any problems the instructions are printed on the mattress, so you can NEVER lose them!
My little boy thought it was pretty nice and relaxing, he even laid down so he could feel the soft, cozy sheet!
Another great feature that only brings ease to being a mother, is the built-in nightlight that works inside the playard and the built-in MP3 (iPod) jack with speakers inside. Yup, inside! This to me is very innovative while being so practical. It's nice to not have to worry about bringing those things when you travel. Love it!
If you are like me and like compartments, then The Room is for you because it comes with this full feature parent organizer that fits everything you need for your baby! It has 9 very spacious compartments to keep your baby things organized! This was the seller for me because I find it is so nice to keep all of your newborn baby things close at hand and organized of course!
I am aways blown away by the quality of their products. The material used is their 600D nylon fabric, which is so durable, you just know that it is going to last! I just wish I had this four years ago!
Now the bassinet and the changing table combo is a very nice feature if you don't want to bother with purchasing and storing separate pieces of furniture. It keeps your room looking clean and organized without loosing the other features and it is very easy to set up.
I simply unstrapped the mattress pad and took it out. I then clipped on the four side rails for the bassinet and placed the rods inside. Put the mattress back in and it was done.
Now for the changing table. What I love about it is it has it's own set of pockets, so if you're worried about storage, don't be. The top is very soft and is made of vinyl making it super easy to clean.
When it was all up and put together, I found the overall look of this playard to be very sleek and stylish, and would make a great addition to any nursery!
Lastly, when it was time to take down, it took only minutes and it was very easy to fit back into the bag. There are two separate compartments which I really like because I won't always need all the pieces and I won't have to be dumping out the entire bag to find what I need. Love being organized!
