Pros:Easy to travel with; it's a crib away from home.
Cons:A little heavy and bulky but it is sturdy.
The Bottom Line: I would definitely recommend this playard to anyone. If you plan on going anywhere during nap time this is simple to put up.
This is the second pack and play that I purchased and it is by far the best one out there. I first purchase an Evenflo pack and play and had nothing but issues with it so after returning it I asked a store associate their opinion on the best ones and was told that Grace is the brand to go with. After careful consideration and folding and unfolding the models in the store I purchased the Graco in Bermuda playard. I took it home and pulled out the instructions and separated all the pieces. I was a little overwhelmed at first because the instructions that it came with were for three different models of Graco's but I finally figured out which ones to follow. I started to put it together and was quite suprised as to how easy it was. I finally got everything put together and set up and I was very pleased at its stability and look. It didn't take up too much space and that was a bonus for me since it stays as the baby sitters house (grandma's) and she already has a lot going on because she has twin three year olds. My daughter used this playard since she was 6 weeks old and she is now 8 months and it is still used for nap time mondays through fridays. This is her own piece of home when she is away and I feel it gives her some type of security when she sleeps. I have now removed the bars that keeps the baby higher since she can pull herself up and she sleeps on the bottom. It is a little firm but that's fine with me because I don't like her sleeping on cushy things because of SIDS; she doesn't complain either. I don't really care for the music player because it is not very loud and I prefer to keep a radio player for white noise. I also don't think the mobile does very much because she likes to see if move and since there are not batteries or a motor I don't have the time to keep spinning it manually for her. Besides those two things I feel that this is a great purchase because my daughter will only sleep in her crib or pack and play and this keeps her contained so she doesn't get into anything and hurt herself. It also keeps other children like by young brother and sister from getting at her while she's trying to nap. When it comes to packing this product back into the carrying case it can be a little difficult of you have all the pieces like the changer table and the mobile and the music player and the part that keeps the baby higher. If you just have the mattress and the playard if is easy to fold up and put into the case since there are velcro straps that hold it tightly together. Overall this is a great product if you are not going to stay home with you child and are taking them to someone else's house to be watched. It's also great when going to visit someone and also for vacations. I know hotels have cribs to use but I know my daughter will not sleep in a strange crib so the transition to a different place is a lot easier.
