Graco’s Pack ‘n Play Playard Sport Is Big Hit With Mom Of Six! @GracoBaby #GracoBaby #Ad



    As a mom of six I have used and tried almost every baby or toddler product out there. My children range in age from 13 years old to 6 days old with a toddler and kindergartner in that mix.  I also work with babies, toddlers, and preschoolers with special needs so I am always on the lookout for good products not only for myself, but also for the children I work with as a pediatric physical therapist.


    That being said, the Graco Pack ‘n Play® Playard Sport™ is amazing! Graco has covered it all with this play yard. It’s sturdy and durable so you never have to worry about baby’s safety.  It comes fully assembled; you simply take it out of the carry bag, and set up takes less than a minute.  All you have to do is open it up and lock it with 2 simple side locks, click the canopy in and “voila!”


    I can’t wait to bring it to the beach, park, and soccer games for my new
little one.  It has two convenient side pockets to carry toys, wipes, or whatever it is you need to bring along on your outings.  


    It’s spacious hexagon shape, comfy, enclosed bottom with waterproof surface, and airy mesh ventilation make it a perfect place for baby or toddler to rest and play.  My daughters, who are 3 and 5, comfortably fit inside with plenty of room and they had fun creeping in and out of the unzipped mesh opening.


    I love the canopy, which fully encloses and covers the playard.  The canopy features a UV lining to protect baby’s sensitive skin from the harsh rays of the sun, and if it rains baby will be protected as well.  It will be nice to not have to run to the car if there’s a little drizzle.  I love that it’s light weight so it’s easy to carry; you can just sling it on your shoulder in the convenient carry bag.  I will be keeping it in the car so I will always have it available when we are out with the family, which is pretty much every weekend.


    The Graco Pack ‘n Play® Playard Sport™ is the perfect size so it won’t take up too much trunk space. This play yard is great for newborns to preschoolers for rest or play in a spacious, comfy haven so parents can rest assured that their precious cargo is safe.  Graco has outdone itself with this playard, and owners can use it for years without disappointment.


    I highly recommend the Graco Pack ‘n Play® Playard Sport™ for families of infants and toddlers who are on the run, as well as for those who just need a sturdy, safe place for baby to play or rest in the home while parents are busy. I know it’s going to keep my little guy safe from his 3 year old sister who wants to hug and kiss him all day long!

  1. Graco is a trusted brand. The girls looked happy in their Graco pack ‘n play sport.

  2. The play yard looks sturdy and durable. I will get this for the twins.

    • Robin (Masshole Mommy) says

      When my boys were little, I always trusted them in their Graco Pack n Plays. They are VERY sturdy and well made.

  3. Robin (Masshole Mommy) says

    I love the shape of that Pack N Play! Back when i had one, it was just a boring old rectangle 😉

  4. What a lovely little play tent, I bet it helps when you need to get something done.

    • I was thinking the same thing. This would be too hard for the kids to resist playing in, and could be used when you want to get something done in the house real quick. 🙂

  5. I always advise new moms to invest in a play yard. It’s a sanity saver. It’s multifunctional and transportable.

  6. Love the hex-shape. Our Graco was square and didn’t compress as nicely at that one!

  7. That looks like a great help to parents of little ones! I’ve never seen that shape in this product before – I like it!

  8. My daughter is having a baby in the spring. I have been telling her that she needs one of these.

  9. This looks like a great product. I like that it has a canopy which would be perfect for a day at the beach.

  10. That would be perfect to take with you or leave at the grandparents house or anywhere else you visit regularly.

  11. Wow that is so convenient. We’d have to bring it on every family trip. This is such a perfect little play area.

  12. I so remember those days. Just needing a minute to myself and to know they were not able to hurt themselves. What a great Graco product.

  13. That is awesome! I so want this for my new baby due in May! What a great way to keep baby safe!

  14. Opens with just 2 clicks! That’s great! I remember always feeling frustrated with baby items when mine were little because they were never easy to open and close. Products sure have come a long way since then!

  15. How fun that it’s a hexagon shape. I can totally see kids thinking this is a cool place to hang out for a bit!

  16. Oh wow. I love this, looks nice and sturdy. I love the shape too. I wish this was around when my kiddos were smaller. Very nice.

  17. I would have loved one of these when the kids were little. The canopy is amazing!

  18. I really like Graco Pack ‘n Play Playard Sport’s canopy and the hexagonal design. We used a rectangular play yard and it took so much room and was difficult to set up.

  19. We had a Graco pack and play and loved it!

  20. I love it! I wish I had something like this when my kids were younger. Really practical!

  21. What an nice looking playard for the little ones. I’m so use to seeing the regular rectangle shaped parks so this is interesting.

  22. I have always trusted Graco with cribs and playards for my kids. They are such a great brand, and they always consider safety and portability.

  23. I just purchased Graco Pack N’ Play Playard/crib for my grandson. I was very happy with my purchase. It was easy to assemble and had a carry case which makes it easy to move from my place to my daughter’s apartment to anywhere!

  24. I wish they made those for my older kids LOL They are fantastic for corralling kids.

  25. I love the shape, it seems like it would fit in odd spaces easily.

  26. Pack n Play has been a great purchase for my now crawling daughter. It came in perfect condition and was super easy to set up.
