Boppy Happy Place Playard Review

We received this as a baby shower gift from my mom. It's a great play yard, I love that it is gender neutral, and I love that it isn't bright blue or pink like some of the other play systems out there. Also, the Boppy is very sturdy.
This review only gets 4 stars for one thing: the instructions on set-up. Thinking I was going to be a nice wife, I asked my husband to please set it up while he watched golf on a Sunday afternoon. Two hours later, my father-in-law and my husband were still trying to make the sides latch correctly to make the thing stand up! They were exceptionally frustrated. We went to Babies R Us to see if the folks there could tell us what we were doing wrong - four sales associates couldn't make the play yard set up, either! Finally, I called Boppy customer service on Monday, and all was revealed. It IS REALLY simple to set up, folks... but you have to know "the trick." In the very bottom of the play yard floor, there is a fabric loop that sticks out of a hole. This loop is attached to the floor locking mechanism. If ANY part of the floor is already locked, then the sides will NEVER lock into place. The thing is, you MUST lock the short sides first. So, start over, pull up on that fabric loop to disengage the floor, (pull it almost until it's even with the rails) and THEN pull up on the side rails (short sides first, then long). You will find that (unless there was a manufacturing error), the sides lock simply and beautifully.
I can set this thing up (with my big pregnant belly) in less than 5 minutes, all by myself. And, as said before, it's sturdy and seems to be well-made. They just need to be more clear with the instructions. Would highly recommend this system, now that we know how it works! Lightweight, good construction.
UPDATE - Our son is now almost 3 months old. We use this as our bassinet in our bedroom until he is old enough to be trusted through the night in his big crib in the nursery. It is awesome. We hauled it with us to visit all the grandparents for Christmas/New Year's, and it is very easy to haul, easy to pack, and easy to set up. Graco Pack N'Play sheets fit on it very well, and we use the quilted Graco sheets on the Boppy for extra comfort.

Sensus 5lb 2" Cal. King Memory Foam Mattress Topper Review

Sensus 5lb 2 Cal. King Memory Foam Mattress Topper
Average Reviews:

(More customer reviews)
About five years ago, when our Simmons Beautyrest (plush) mattress started to develop body indentions (after only 3 years of ownership and plenty of mattress rotating/flipping) we bought a 1.25" (unknown density) memory foam topper for about $50 when memory foam toppers first started becoming popular. It really seemed to help make our mattress more comfortable. Then after about 3 years we felt like our topper no longer felt as firm and resilient so we "upgraded" to a 2" toppper (unknown density) for about $75. The 2" topper actually seemed more uncomfortable than the 1.25" topper since it had more give and halfway through the night you found yourself sleeping in a crater (just like our mattress was without a topper). Plus the 2" topper was much "hotter" to sleep on then the 1.25". We ended up swapping back to the original 1.25" topper and put the 2" to use in the guest room.
Three months ago we ended up realizing the "body indentions" in our mattress was so bad that we needed a new mattress. The mattress warranty company agreed and we received a replacement mattress. After doing some research we decided that instead of buying a plush mattress (which we liked the comfort of but which seem to be so soft that they develop body indentions sooner than the firm mattresses) that we would would instead buy a firm mattress and a nice, high quality topper with the thinking that the topper would wear out in 2-4 years but at least if we went with a firm mattress that the mattress itself would resist indentions longer than if we went with a plush mattress.
So after doing some research and reading various reviews I decided to select the Sensus 5lb 2" topper. I also considered the Aerus topper for its temperature properties but the folks at Sleep Warehouse mentioned it did have more give to it and I also read a review from someone on another site who said they did sink down in it quite a bit (I know some people want their memory foam to have more give - we just don't like sleeping in a large crater).
After having the Sensus on a brand new Simmons Beautyrest Firm Mattress I can say the following:
1) At 5lb density the Sensus foam is much firmer than any of the previous toppers we had. I would estimate our old 1.25 inch topper was probably 3-4 lb density and our 2" topper was proabably 2-3lb density.
2) The initial smell was not too bad - we did air it out in the guest room for a week before using it. I would recommend doing the same.
3) It is warmer then our 1.25 inch topper but a little less warm than our cheap 2" topper. Might be an issue when July/Aug rolls around if you do not have A/C.
4) After you have been laying on it for a while (1hr or longer) as the topper gets heated up from your body heat you do start to sink down.For us not as much as we did on our cheap 2" topper but certainly more than we did on our 1.25" topper. This is our only real complaint - that when you wake up in the morning you feel like you have slept in a crater or body indention - some people like that - we just like when it conforms to your body slightly not sinking way down.
So if I had to do it all over again I would have probably searched for a high quality topper that was thinner - say 1 or 1.5 inches thick. That way we would not sink down so much (and it would probably be cooler as well). If the Sensus came in a 1" or 1.5" configuration I would probably go with that but unfortunately right now 2" is the minimum. They do now offer the Venus 8lb density topper in 1" but that is almost 50% more expensive and I'm not so sure if an 8lb density foam would be too stiff ... especially on top of a firm mattress. A 5lb 1" topper would be ideal.
If I had paid less than $150 for this topper I would say it was worth every penny but at $260ish I wouldn't say it was that much more superior in comfort to the 1.25 inch $50 topper we used to have. I know they have improved the technology so that these toppers are able to retain their memory characteristics longer but I am still thinking that anytime you lay on something (bed, couch, chair, topper, car seat, pillow tops) for 6-8 hours per day times 365 days a year it is going to degrade. But in our opinion it was cheaper to go through a toppper every few years than the mattress/box spring. And yes we also considered a Select Comfort air mattres system but after reading all the stuff written about it on Epinions and the complaints on BBB we decided that even those developed problems over time.
Hopefully our experiment of going with a firm mattress that won't wear out as fast as the base and going with a "replaceable" sleeping surface as the top layer will pay off in the long run. Stay tuned. Too bad there isn't a better solution out there which doesn't cost as much as a used car.

This futon cover is very good quality in terms of thickness and seems durable. It fits the futon well, not too tight and not too loose. The zipper is a heavy duty plastic that seems like it would not break easily. The only thing that didn't exceed my expectations was that it is a dark red (like maroon or burgandy) and I was looking for more of a deep true red. All in all, worth the money.
