Graco Pack n Play Jetsetter reviewis unique in comparison to the rest of the Pack ‘n Play line from Graco. The look is streamlined, and so are the features. Instead of packing in every feature possible, it includes just a few key conveniences. The result is a much easier option for on the go, but a great solution for at home too.

What I love about the Graco Pack n Play Jetsetter:

 

This playard is much more compact and portable than most. The unique shape allows it to fit in between a much smaller space between beds at my parents’ house. It also folds smaller.

 

The shape also makes it harder for my toddler to climb out.

The large, visible buttons make it easy to fold, without help.

The padded mattress is very comfortable. This makes more than usable for extended visits. We used it for over a week, and my fussy toddler slept very well.

The backpack-style straps on the carrying case is my husband’s favorite feature! When he loads up the car for our visits, the hands-free carry saves him a trip.

The diaper changing pad is a feature that I do NOT have use for now. However, this adds a lot of functionality for use of this at home with an infant. We used a playard for M until he was about five or six months old. Having the options of a built-in changing pad, with storage for nearby supplies, both at home and while on the go, makes things so much easier.

This brings me to the bassinet… I love what the tapered sides do for the bassinet. It makes it much smaller, and more infant-sized. The mattress is tucked into the sides so that it’s firmer in place. The playard folds with the bassinet intact.

The bassinet attaches with an easy-to-use zipper. The zipper is covered with a velcro closure, making it more secure, and hiding it from curious eyes.

If I were to choose one “unnecessary splurge” on a playard, it would be vibrations. M loved them when he was little (he had them only on his bouncer) and it’s a great way to soothe an infant! The Jetsetter has two levels of vibration for the bassinet.

Finally, my favorite feature of all time is the canopy. It is easy to install and remove. While it’s not the best option for toddlers (M didn’t let me close it and then took it right off), it’s perfect for infants.

The darkening shade allows infants to relax better. It has large, open mesh areas so that you don’t need to worry in the least about airflow.

One Drawback:

The one drawback of the Graco Pack n Play Jetsetter is the fact that you can’t fit all the accessories in with it. The bassinet folds in with the playard, however the canopy and the diaper changer were stowed in the outside pockets, making it a bit bulky. That being said, I normally wouldn’t bring all the accessories along. I just wanted to photograph it in use at my parents’ house 🙂

 

In conclusion:

 

If you’re looking for a sturdy and beautiful playard, the Jetsetter should be an obvious choice. It has just the features you need to make it great both for on-the-go and for an alternative to a cradle or bassinet for an infant. I love how Graco streamlined it without stripping it of the handy “extra” features that make me a huge fan of the brand.

  1. I think it’s great that Graco has downsized their model for something s little more space functional yet I still love our bjorn travel crib for on the go. It’s so easy to stow and fold.

  2. I’ve been searching for a quality, no-frills playard and this looks perfect. I like that it’s easy to fold but is still lightweight.

  3. Hi !
    Your article is very detailed, very true image, allowing users to have a true look over the product, on behalf of everyone thank you very much.

  4. Hello, one quick question. Can you tell me how quick/easy it is (or isn’t I guess) to use the bassinet as a changing table and then when done changing, put the baby in the bottom to sleep? My baby is 4 mos old now and too big to use the bassinet to sleep in but I’d really like to use it as a changing table. If the bassinet is a zip on feature it seems like it would be a hassle to change the baby, then unzip it to put the baby down for bed as soon as you’re done changing her. Does this make sense? Please advise. Thanks so much!

    • I’m not sure that would be a practical solution for you. It’s really not hard, and takes about a minute, but it’s an extra step when changing a diaper. I have used the changing pad separately on a bed when the bassinet isn’t in use, but if you want that as a main functionality, you might want to look for one that you can just place on top of a changing table without the bassinet. When purchasing baby gear, I usually list mentally my must-have features, and then after that take into account the “nice to have” and the “features I’ll never use”. If the changing pad (past the first few months, and on the elevated surface) is a must-have then this model might not be for you. If the canopy and slimmer design is a priority, and the changing pad is “nice to have”, the Jetsetter is great.

  5. Thank you!! Great review and photos.

    I’m wondering what sheets you used on this play yard- for the bottom. We have this and I can’t find sheets to match this size.
