Jeep Playyard (review/giveaway)


There was one product when I was pregnant with Jaxon I knew I needed, a playpen! The one playpen we bought ended up being recalled and I had to send in the mesh sides to get a rebate which ended up being spent on bills. I knew I needed one, but there were other things more important that we had to buy. Recently I was sent the Jeep® Trek Easy-Travel Playard made by Kolcraft, I was shocked at how huge the box was sitting on my front porch!


I was lucky, when the playpen arrived Jeffery and Jaylin were napping and it just happened to be time for Jaxon to eat, so I fed him and put him in the swing and he watched me put his Jeep® Trek Easy-Travel Playard together. It did take a bit to put together, I just followed the directions closely, it had good illistrations and great written directions. Some of the parts were tough to put into place, but to me that means it's solid, it wont fall apart. What attracted me to the Jeep® Trek Easy-Travel Playard was the storage compartment on one end of it, I'm able to put some of Jaxon's diapers and extra onsies and such there so I don't have to keep going into the bedroom to get them. It also has a bassinet attachment and a changing table attachment {Please note, never place baby in the playpen while changing table is attached, I missed this in the instruction manual, I have since changed the pictures of this review for safety concerns}, I love both of those features, I don't have to bend way down to pick Jaxon up when he wakes up. There is also the cute little toy bar with a lion, zebra and giraffe, it matches everything else in his theme which is jungle.


I've mentioned before that Jaxon's crib is in our bedroom, and I think I've mentioned that Jeff works swing shifts (2 weeks of dayshift, 2 weeks of nightshift), well when Jeff is on nightshift he can't sleep well when Jaxon wakes up during the day and I'm busy with the older 2 and can't get to Jaxon right away, now that we have the Jeep® Trek Easy-Travel Playard in our living room (the color of the playpen actually matches our living room colors!), problem solved! Now Jeff can sleep easy during the day, I don't even have to go in the bedroom to get diapers or clothes or anything since it has the storage compartment on the end of it!


The Jeep® Trek Easy-Travel Playard wasn't too hard to fold up, took a little bit of muscle to pull up the pull handle (oh, I forgot to mention the playyard has wheels and a handle so you don't have to carry it, just roll it! Yet another plus of this playyard!) The sides fold easy, and it's easy to strap shut, the floor, bassinet attachment, and changing table attachment all fit inside the folded up playyard. The cover is a bit tight, so getting it put on was a bit of a struggle, but I thought it was well worth it, to be able to just roll this behind you and take where ever you travel to. It's going to be a lifesaver when we visit Jeff's parents.


Jeff told me today that Jaylin decided to test the durability of the Jeep® Trek Easy-Travel Playard, he caught Jaylin standing in the bassinet so she could reach the top of the fireplace mantle. She weighs a good 35-40lbs and it held her, although I don't plan to let her do it again!


The only downside, it's pretty bulky...so putting it in our van is going to take up a bit of room, the cause of the bulkyness is the storage compartment...which honestly, is worth the bulkyness to be able to put Jaxon's clothes and diapers in that, zip it up, and roll it with us where ever we go. No need for an extra bag for Jaxon.
I love my Jeep® Trek Easy-Travel Playard! It's a must have for any family with a baby who travels! It's great from newborn on up! As you can see from the pictures above, Jaxon loves to watch the little animals on the toy bar.
