It’s a Breeze!

So in true hoarding fashion, we have a few pack n plays.  We have one my parents bought (we keep it over at their house for when Will needs a nap)….we have one here (for guests and for when I need Will to stay put)…and Jeremy’s folks have one (it stays in Chattanooga for when we visit).  So when the folks behind the new playard called The Breeze contacted us, we were like…um…yeah…awkward silence…we don’t need this…aren’t all playards the same?! 

And then we watched the video.  And the 2×4 of realization smacked me across the face. 

This one is different. 

First of all…it’s actually sleek and looks like it’s not from the 80’s.  And don’t let our leggings fool you.   We like 2012.   And why do baby gear manufacturers feel the need to put Winnie the Pooh on ALL the options?  Hello!  These things have to live in our houses!

And on top of the way it looks…it actually doesn’t cause a stomach ulcer to set up.  In fact, it’s ridiculously easy.  Like I wanna apologize to my mom for making her go through setting up the old one because this one puts it to shame.     Check out my home video to show ya how easy this one actually is…

There are other videos to watch here if you wanna see someone NOT in diapers set it up. 

And yes, Will is obsessed.  We told him it was for the new baby (the first thing we really got for the Little Baby) but he is convinced that it’s his…and that he can make a tent out of it…and change his Zebah in the changing pad.

    I actually dont have kids yet but we are near to trying & I am sure I can use this in the future! I do have a niece & nephew though and run my church nursery and so far I think those snack cups that have the plastic on top where the food cannot fall out is GENIUS!

    It’s a breeze! I am expecting my first child in February so I am not sure what my favorite toy is but my nephew loves all his lamaze toys, esp. his octopus:)

    It’s a breeze! My little guy is only three weeks old (and he’s our first!) so I don’t have a favorite yet… though he does love his Fisher price rainforest swing, and the soothing sound effects it makes put us both the sleep!

    omgomgomgomg! I just got an email saying I actually won this, and wanted to say THANK YOU! I’ve seriously never won anything, so I’m pretty pumped. Plus, we’ll actually use it for our new little baby due to arrive next month. Woohoo! You guys rock.
