4moms breeze Review

Hark, expecting and current parents! You need a play yard.

Of some sort.

And even though we’ve always been big fans of the classic Pack ‘n Play, 4moms is definitely onto something with the Breeze play yard. Yes, friends, there is a LOT to like here.

Most parents agree the ease of use is well worth the extra dollars. It’s super easy to fold and unfold – seriously, it’s “insanely easy”… like, it makes the PNP look like rocket science, in comparison. You can do it with a single hand, in seconds. No muss, no fuss. It’s, well… a breeze (get it?)!

Compared to the Graco Pack ‘n Play, which is not necessarily intuitive to put together and take apart, the Breeze is foolproof. For this reason, we especially recommend it for grandparents (see also: Grandparents Guide to Baby Gear).

The 4moms breeze is a sturdy, durable product (one mom on Amazon even said she crawled in with her baby sometimes!), and it’s undoubtedly a high-quality item.

4moms Breeze Models

There are now two models of the Breeze available (they’ve done away with the entry-level model): the Breeze Plus ($299) and the Breeze GO ($249). The former comes with a bassinet and changer (a must-have for babies under 6 months), while the GO (the travel version), doesn’t. Other than that (and the color), we’re talking about the same thing. 

At 23 pounds, the 4moms Breeze is comparable to the Pack ‘n Play and other play yards in terms of weight, and it also comes with a carrying case for easy transport. Note that the handles are long, so carrying it low may cause it to drag on the floor if you’re short.

Much like with the standard-issue Graco PNP, we think a play yard like the 4moms Breeze is a GREAT option that kills many birds with one stone. This can function as a bedside bassinet, a crib, and a play yard for an active toddler. Yes, you can get many years of use out of this!

The downsides: some parents complain that the sheets required are pretty pricey ($30 for the bassinet sheet and $40 for the play yard sheet). Given that you may want 2-3 sheets, this does raise the cost of an already-expensive product. Other than that, there are virtually no complaints with this product.

Bottom line: Though much pricier than other play yards ($300 vs. $150 or so), the 4moms Breeze wins in the ease-of-use category with an extremely intuitive fold (and unfold); not to mention, it’s much more attractive. Choose the Plus model, which comes with a bassinet for infants under 6 months.
