CSN review (and a chance to win!)

Remember my CSN teaser post? Well the review is finally here!

After many days of searching and agonizing over what to get with our gift card (provided by CSN for this review), we finally decided to apply it to a play yard for our new bundle! We wanted a bassinet, but after seeing the Safety 1st Travel Ease Elite play yard– which included a full size bassinet, changing table, and carry bag- we jumped at it!
This is perfect for us! It fits perfectly next to our bed where baby will sleep for the first few months. I love that it has wheels to roll so I can move it easily if needed. And knowing I will be able to use it as baby grows is wonderful too! If we go on vacation, I have a bed for him. If his grammy happens to babysit, I can tote it over to her house in the handy carry bag and he’ll have a safe place to rest.

I loved how easy it was to use the CSN website. I looked for something with free shipping, but that wasn’t hard to find; Seems like most of the items they sell at their over 200 stores has free shipping! The package our play yard came in weighed about 30 lbs. I cannot imagine what that could have cost in shipping had I purchased from somewhere else. Even more impressive to me was how quickly we received our package once I placed the order…it took only 5 days to arrive!

Overall I was very impressed with my experience with CSN stores from beginning to end and I know you’ll be impressed too! Remember, with over 200 stores selling products ranging from home decor to shoes, furniture to baby & kid items, you’re bound to find exactly what you’re looking for!

I was given a gift card to CSN stores
to help facilitate my review. These are my honest opinions on the product. Please see my terms of use for more information. A big thank you to CSN stores for this review opportunity!


  1. Its beautiful! I love the colors. Glad you were able to narrow it down to one item. CSN stores has so many things its so hard to choose.

  2. that's really nice Alesha! That will be great for little man πŸ™‚

  3. Love it! We have something similar, but ours is in our living room so little guy can sleep during the day without me having to run him up and down the stairs to our room.

    Funny thing…Our bedroom is the EXACT same color as yours and we have brown curtains and a bedspread that is that blueish color with brown! I'll have to find a pic and share it with you sometime. πŸ™‚

  4. I love Safety First products! We need a new play-yard, I'll be looking into this one!

  6. Looks great! Enjoy.

  7. would love to win the gift certificate to CSN , i love their shop they have everything. please enter me.


  8. I love CSN! They literally have EVERYTHING and anything!

  9. Play yards are so neccesary, especially if you have more than one child. It keeps the baby safe from the older ones. lol. Love the colors on this one.

  10. Congrats on your new bundle! How exciting preparing for the baby!

  12. Love the colors, would be great for my new grandchild to be.

  13. that one looks very nice! We love our play yard! We originally got it as a co-sleeper, but never used it… now that L is a little older, we use it so he can practice sitting up and if he falls over, it's a soft surface..unlike our hardwood floors. lol

  14. Nice…great choice. It's amazing how products evolve and come out so quickly. I remember purchasing a play yard a little over 4yrs ago and they didn't have the diaper changing thing on the top. I LOVE yours that you chose.

  15. I hope I win some credit to CSN πŸ™‚

    I have one of these and I love it!

  17. Visiting from Arizona Mama. Great review! I like having someone's firsthand account when I try something out for the first time.

  18. CSN really has a little bit of everything, don't they?

  19. looks really nice and i love the color combination! and congrats!

  20. You are exactly right when you say it will be great on trips! We just got back from the cottage and took ours with us and baby had fantastic sleeps! The colors in yours are gorgeous too!

  21. I have loved that pack and play for so long, but I have all girls and I couldn't force myself to put them in it. Maybe one day we'll have a boy to put in it.
    I really love how it fits right next to your bed and it even matches your bedding really well

  22. That is good to know that most of the items they sell at has free shipping and that you received the items you bought quickly!


  23. great review! I like that it has wheels to move it around.
