Meet the Bright Starts InGenuity Playard

Convenience for travel, styling for home.

But the patented Sleep Easy™ feature in the bassinet makes this Playard a stand-out in offering the most comfortable and healthy sleep for your baby. The bassinet mattress can be adjusted to a slightly inclined sleeping position or can remain flat.

Our Bright Starts InGenuity Playard Experience

Thanks to Bright Starts, my family and I were able to experience a brand new product from the InGenuity collection that in my opinion is one of the best multifunctional playards I’ve ever had the pleasure of owning. It offers accessories that make my life easier with safety features that I feel comfortable trusting with my baby.

For starters, the changing table and storage tray have made changing diapers a much quicker task no matter when end of the house I’m on. With our little Emma now running all over the house, we can keep her non-portable changing table in her room and the InGenuity Playard in the living room to save time and travel when changing diapers.

Among the many safety features, I love that the optional bassinet buckles are covered in soft fabric when the bassinet is not in use. This is perfect for preventing my one year old daughter from trying to chew them or getting her little fingers pinched in the buckles.

For many children, this can be used for quite some time. Our daughter is just 21lbs at a year old and is able to use the changing table.

And of course, the best part of any playard is the ability to have a portable nap or play zone for your baby on the go. This past weekend we had to do some bedroom rearranging because our toddler was being difficult and the playard with the perfect solution. We were able to allow Emmaleigh to sleep in our bedroom without having to move her full size crib.

Room for Improvement

Over the course of three children we’ve owned quite a few multifunctional playards. The great thing about having a playard is how easily it travels inside and outside the home. Unfortunately, like all other playards I’ve used, the Bright Starts InGenuity Playard does not fit through standard doorways inside the home without being folded. For parents like myself that may need to easy go from room to room, I’d really love to see this particular playard offered in a smaller width.

One other area that is missing an important safety feature is the changing table. While I’d never intentionally leave my daughter unattended, it’s always a good idea to have a safety strap for those just in case moments. I’d love to see a retractable safety belt added to prevent any accidental falls which would also avoid a strangulation hazard by being retractable.

    Well, my baby isn’t born yet, but my husband and I are continually entertained by the flips, swirls, punches and bladder kicks. It makes me laugh and smile, all day long; it’s like my own little secret entertainment. At night, when I’m home with my DH, he spends time trying to get the baby to kick him in the face! It makes us both laugh hysterically! http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h213/dgr123116/Baby/DSC00276.jpg
