Joovy Room Nursery Center Playard Review by Emily Schnetz

2919 Canton St.
Dallas, TX 75226

The Joovy Room Nursery Center Playard is a comprehensive all-in-oneset that includes a bassinet, changing table, diaper station, mattress, fitted waterproof sheet, and storage compartment. It is complete with a compact storage bag that everything included in the Room folds into. The Room can be used for travel or as your baby’s regular sleeping space. The bassinet is meant for infants up to fifteen pounds. Once over fifteen pounds, you can just remove the bassinet feature. The changing table is sturdy and has a buckle to keep your baby in place. It holds a baby up to 25 pounds. The changing table also flips away for easy storage when you are not using it. There is a compartment to hold extra diapers, wipes, creams, and whatever else you may need. In addition to all of that, there is also a large storage compartment to hold things like blankets, toys, clothes, extra sheets, or anything else you’d like to store for your baby.

Here are some measurements and technical specifications so you can determine if this will fit your space/sizing needs.

Minimum child age: Birth+
Maximum child height: 35 in
Open size: 28.5 x 39.5 x 32.5 in
Mattress area: 27 x 39 in
Folded size: 12.5 x 31 x 11 in
Playard weight: 32.4 lbs

I really like this product! It is sturdy, well-made, and I like having everything available in one place. It’s nice to be able to pack everything up when we go somewhere overnight.

I did find the Room difficult to initially set up, as the sides were not at all easy for me to lock, but once I figured out how it worked, it set up nicely. The Room is a little heavy for me, which makes it inconvenient to take on frequent trips. However, I can always ask my husband to pack it into the car.

I would definitely recommend the Joovy Room to other families with newborns out there! It is a useful, well-made product.
