BabyBjorn Travel Crib Light

It shouldn’t be an IQ test—or a major workout—to set a playard up. And this one is as easy to assemble as it is on the eyes. Legs unfold automatically, making setup a one-motion job. And the whole thing weighs in at only 13 pounds.

Buy it: $300, BabiesRUs.com

Joovy Room² Playard

The newest iteration of the Joovy Room offers a full 10 square feet of soft, safe play space that you can pack up and take with you. Perfect for twins, there's plenty of space for rolling around. And this durable playard rolls around itself, equipped with two wheels for easy mobility.

Graco Pack 'n Play Playard Jetsetter Lite

Just because you're not at home doesn't mean baby shouldn't get some quality shuteye. And this Graco playard means business, complete with a removable, breathable canopy to block out light and a bassinet attachment with a 2-speed vibration for heavy-duty soothing. Ready to put it away? A push-button fold makes the process hassle-free.

KidCo Travel Pod

There's nothing complicated about this playard. Sure, it doesn't open in one motion, but the easy transport makes up for it. And at just 10.5 pounds, this one's great for overnight travel.
