Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

The comfy, soft and padded mattress padded makes a very comfortable surface for nap times or playtime
This is such a great product because it's not only practical but we appreciate the sleek design. This product is available in various prints to fit your fancy! The padding does come off for a quick wash.
One of my favorite things about the Fisher-Price On-the-Go Baby Dome is the ability to use it outside. The “dome” aspect really comes into play when providing protection from the sun or other undesirable weather conditions.
It has a canopy with UPF 20 protection to provide shade and keep bugs away and comes with a plush sleeping pad, ensuring you don't have to worry about lugging around a separate mattress.

Don’t ask me how I found the Fisher Price On-The-Go Baby Dome, but what I can tell you is that it was love at first sight. As soon as I opened the box I knew it was everything that we needed at that stage in life.
The canopy on the On-The-Go Baby Dome can be buckled shut to shield your baby from the sun and give them some privacy during nap time.

What reviewers didn't like

Mattress pas is not secured down
Make sure to watch the sides of the padding that can come detached and cause a suffocation hazard. The tags are on the under side of the padding, and my baby constantly digs to get to the tags. I have to watch her closely!
But you have to keep in mind that, while a baby can comfortably play or rest in it, it's not going to offer a great deal of space for toys.
- Romper
The only thing I wished is that when folded, the Baby Dome would fit in the basket of our stroller, because that would make going to the park solo with the kid so easy.
