4moms Breeze, a one-push-setup playard to make the parental life easier

4moms Breeze

For new parents, the challenges of raising a newborn aren’t always what you can or prepare for out of a book. Every baby is different, they say, so you’ll have to take time adjusting to the unpredictability of life’s greatest joy. While you do that, it’s always nice to have a cool gadget nearby to give you more time to focus on taking care of your baby. That’s why the new 4moms Breeze playard would make an excellent addition to your nursery.

Unless you’re a whiz at putting furnitures together, 4moms’ Breeze is appropriately-named. Like the company’s previous products, setting up never takes more than a push of a button. In Breeze’s case, all you have to do is push down on the center spot and the playard instantly converts to the full-sized shape. When you want to store the item away, just pull up on the handle and the corners will retract back to its closed, vertical form.

4moms Breeze package“The playard category has never seen anything like the Breeze,” said Rob Daley, CEO of 4moms. “Through thoughtful design and engineering, we’ve created a playard that’s truly easy to use.”

There are also no worries about your child possibly catching the handle and retracting the playard on his or her own. Once fully extended, you can cover the base of the area with a pad or blanket to prevent toys or little hands from fussing with the crib. The nylon material is also leakproof, so cleanup is a non-issue.

All in all, the item is just one less worry for busy moms and dads who can set up their playard with just one hand. The Breeze also comes with a removable bassinet for smaller newborns, a carrying bag, and a changing pad. Of course, expect this level of convenience to come with quite the price tag. The 4moms Breeze is currently accepting pre-orders now at $300 apiece with a shipment date estimated for mid-October.

Watch the video below to see how the Breeze one-step-setup works.
