As I prepare for baby’s arrival, I’ve been overwhelmed by the amount and cost of all the infant gear marketed to new parents. Borrowing items from family and friends is one way to keep your costs down.
Since I received a used Graco Pack & Play from a cousin and fully intend to use it despite a few stains, I was delighted to hear about Coverplayyard.com. As one of the most popular infant items, play yards get heavy use and suffer the wear and tear of frequent spills.
Coverplayard.com offers a line of slipcovers made for portable play yards. The slipcovers fit most standard play yards and are easy to attach.
I found it easy to fit the slipcover on my Graco Pack & Play and loved the way it transformed my stained play yard into something stylish and chic. Even better, I was able to match the play yard to my existing decor by picking a slipcover that matched my living room. Since the slipcover is easy to launder, my play yard will look new for years to come.
Coverplayyard.com makes both Cotton Lycra and Soft Chenille Slipcovers. You can pick from a range of colors and patterns to fit your decor. The Zachary model in cotton Lycra $49.99 is pictured at right, and the Billy model in chenille $59.99 is pictured in the upper left. There’s also a wide variety of styles for girls. My favorite is the Daisy ($49.99), which is a pink floral in cotton Lycra.
The slipcover came in a matching bag, which is intended for travel. As a frequent traveler, I often deal with stained bedspreads in even the nicest hotels. If that’s what the bedspreads look like, I can only imagine how scary-looking the hotels’ portable cribs are. I really like the idea of covering the germy hotel crib with a freshly-washed and clean-smelling slipcover.
If you’re looking to dress-up your existing play yard with a stylish slipcover to match your decor or just looking for a hygienic slipcover for use when you travel, I highly recommend Coverplayyard.com.
