As all of you know, we no longer have tiny babies in our house, so we asked “Deal”icious Mom, Sara, to help us in reviewing the new Playard from Bright Starts Ingenuity line! Sara is a mom to 2 little boys, ages 4 and 7 months, a high school teacher and she even manages to run a very successful blog, where you’ll find sweet deals and tons of freebies! Stop by, leave her comment and show her some love!
Here’s what “Deal”icious Mom had to say about her experience:
Squeaker Man’s Bright Starts Ingenuity Experience:
“Squeaker Man” (my 8 month old) was lucky enough to get to experience one of the new playards from the Bright Starts Ingenuity line, Thanks to “Deal”ectible Mommies and Bright Starts. Having owned a number of playards over the years I can say that in my opinion this playards offers many new features that other playards do not. The Ingenuity Playard by Bright Starts is incredible portable and easy to travel with. The design is very neutral so it is great for both boys and girls so it is great to use for all your children and visitors!
Here are some more features that make Squeaker Man and “Deal”icious Mom smile:
- Sleep Easy Incline™ bassinet with 2 sleep positions: flat or slightly inclined
- One Less Step™ feature allows you to quickly fold the Playard without removing the bassinet. This is the only Playard available with this feature
- Extra-large storage tray holds a full box of wipes, diapers, and more!
- Convenient travel bag
Of course with any product there is always room for improvement. I would love to see a safety strap on the changing table. Of course, we never leave “Squaker Man” on the table unattended but an added safety feature like a safety strap would be an added extra that would only add to my peace of mind. I would also love to see this playard designed at a smaller width. I made the mistake of setting it up in the living room and then deciding that I wanted it in the bedroom. I could not fit it through the standard doorway of my house with folding it up. This decreases the portability of this playard since ideally I would like to be able move it back and forth from room to room without having to fold it up to do so. Since it is so easy to fold this really is not a big deal though!
Interested in watching a demo of this awesome playard – Check it out!
Wrapping up, I love this playard because it makes it so much easier to travel with “Squeaker”. It is also nice to have a central location to change him and a place to place him quickly when the doorbell rings. The pattern is a nice feature because it can be given as a gift to a family for either a boy or a girl. I love that I can buy this as a shower gift even when the family is keeping the sex a secret until the baby’s birth. This playard has so many great features! I recommend you check it out!
