When my daughter was born there was one main thing I was lacking and that was space! I had no room to store diapers, wipes, toys, or anything else my daughter needed. There was also no way I could fit a changing table into a room with her crib! When my best friend found out she was pregnant, I knew she would have the same problem. Of course this time around, we found the new Room from Joovy! This nursery center playard solved all of our problems almost instantly! The Room from Joovy is an all-in-one product that keeps everything baby needs for sleeping, diaper changes and playtime all within hands-reach!When I got my Room in the mail, I was beyond excited to take it out and see all of the awesome features. I was instantly amazed at how easily it was to assemble this product. Assembly took about 15 minutes, however I could probably do it much faster now that I know what to expect. The base of the playard opens up like a basic playpen; lock the sides and push the middle.The detachable bassinet attaches to the playard with several side clips to ensure that bassinet is secure. The bassinet is fairly large, and can hold up to 15 pounds. Once baby outgrows the bassinet it can be removed and the mattress can be placed on the bottom of the playard. The Room also comes with a detachable changing table, which happens to be one of my favorite features. Just like the bassinet, the changing table attached to the playard with several side clips and velcro straps. Unlike the bassinet, the changing table can be flipped to the side when not in use! I can flip it and lock it into place with one hand, change a dirty diaper, and then flip it back off again! This eliminates the need for an entire changing table in baby’s room! The changing table holds babies up to 25 pounds, so I can use it for several years (my daughter didn’t hit 25lbs until she was two years old)! The changing table also has an extremely easy-to clean surface. I can wipe it down with a baby wipe after each use and it is ready-to-go! Another major plus of this playard, is all of the storage space! On one side of the playard, there is a diaper station, and on the other there is a large storage pocket. The diaper station is a genius addition, because everything I need is stored in one area. The side compartments are perfect for storing diapers, while the inner compartment is best for wipes and ointments! I can also keep spare blankets and a few toys on the top spot.As if this playard couldn’t get any more perfect, it has wheels! I can slide it into whichever room I need it in and everything (diaper station and changing table) comes along with it! That makes the Room perfect for traveling, as well as in-home use! Although I want to keep this for myself, I know my best friend will get a ton of great use out of this! It is the perfect baby shower gift that any mother would love to get!
