What reviewers liked

Graco seems to have put a lot of thought into this play yard’s design because it has a lot of safety features. From the fastening straps on the mattress to the mesh siding, down to the carefully padded metal bars, parents really don’t have much to worry about—unless their child is over the height, weight, or development limits.
This portable baby playards has a pair of wheels. Therefore, you can conveniently move it from one place to another with ease.
Convenient for travel or home
The Pack ‘n Play can also be a playard, which is a handy place for your baby to hang out when you have to do something else and can’t keep eagle eyes on them. (Oh, hi, toddler climbing on the table.)
It DOES come with an insert that raises the base level of the sleeping surface, which is a big help with newborns when you’re laying them down/picking them up.
We think it is a good choice for parents on a budget and that most families will be pleased with the features, functionality and overall quality of the Pack 'n Play.

What reviewers didn't like

It’s a good option for local travel, but may not withstand the beating it would get in the luggage compartment of an airplane.
Sheets and other accessories sold separately
It’s heavy and hard to use. Folding and unfolding can devolve into a wrestling match. The lightest version is more than 20 lbs, and most are closer to 30.
It is a little harder to use and heavier than some parents will want to carry.
There aren’t any extras, the fabric isn’t machine-washable, and this pack ‘n play has a two-step fold, not a one-hand fold.
