The Bright Starts InGenuity SleepEasy Playard provides a full-size bassinet, but takes a step out of the set-up/fold-up process by using a zip-in attachment that lets you keep the bassinet in place, even when the play yard is collapsed. This is great for the early months when you’ll primarily need the bassinet and don’t want to bother assembling it and disassembling it each time you travel. In addition, a zipper on one of the play yard’s mesh sides lets you access the bot- tom of the play yard for storage when baby is only using the bassinet up top. This is great for keeping spare blankets and toys. The bassinet is also designed to be zipped into an inclined position, which can help baby sleep better, especially when congested. The play yard comes with a removable changing station, which is sturdy and has an easily wipe-able surface. However, because it can be tricky to remove, it may end up in a permanently removed state since you won’t want to leave it directly above the bassinet. A three- compartment storage tray attaches to the side of the play yard to hold your basic diapering supplies. Baby will enjoy a toy bar with cute, embroidered stuffed animals as well as a sound module that plays nature sounds and soft melodies at two volume levels. The collapsing mechanism on this play yard can be a little trickier to activate but certainly gets easier with practice.
