Easier to set up than any other pack n play
Quicker to set up than any other pack n play
2 step set up and take down
Love the waterproof mattress
The Bjorn is much better than standard pack n plays to travel with. It is simple, and good for sleep/nap time.
It doesn't have all the bells and whistles that the bigger playard have (changing station, mobile/toy arc, half-way elevation for young infants, napper station for new borns) so for that reason I would say its better for older infants (6+ months). It would be hard to reach all the way down to scoop up a new born that can't hold their head yet. Also for that reason I would say its better for a nap/sleep crib in baby's room, rather than that handy playard moms have near the kitchen.

Lets be honest, playpens can't roll away nicely like air mattresses can. But this travel crib folds up in a nice square shape, complete with softcover suitcase which makes for much easier packing. It's maybe about 8'' thick when packed up, which makes for easy sliding under or behind your vehicle's passenger seating.
It is a little pricey. But if you have no patience for cheap crap, if you travel often or need to carry a playpen with you back and forth, THIS is the one to get. (Also good value if you plan to use it for future children!)
The bottom of the playpen is also large enough to accomodate a three year old (if using a smaller sized pillow). So you will use it for some time. It's not only a travel CRIB, but a travel BED.
My only complaint is that the mattess is pretty thin. But I usually just fold up a thick comforter on the floor and set the travel crib on top for extra softness. (If it's going on plush carpenting, then you have no problem.)
Overall, I recommend this to people if they can afford it. And it makes a great baby shower gift if you split the cost with other people.

This is a great "little" travel crib compared to the PnP - 11lbs compared to 30lbs. In planning a 3-wk trip by myself with my child, stroller, car seat, luggage, carry on, and diaper bag, I knew I couldn't afford the space and weight that a PnP would take, so I went for the BBTCL. Here is my impression:
-it sets up like a dream; I didn't even look at the directions and was able to set up and take down in no time by myself.
-feels sturdy and safe for my wiggly, crawling 8-mo-old (time will tell if that rings true for an older, standing child).
-mattress is cushy and feels like it's comfortable for a child.
-my standard crib sheets fit this well (esp. the ones that are slightly tighter on the crib mattress) - so DON'T FALL INTO THE TRAP OF BUYING THE $40 BBTCL-SPECIFIC CRIB SHEET! - try out your own sheets first; I don't have to use any fasteners to keep the regular sheet tight enough in the BBTCL, and the mattress pushes down into the bottom of the travel crib well enough to keep the sheets tight.
-easy to just toss in the car, not heavy.
-this will *definitely* not fit in standard-sized luggage. I've had to search around for luggage that will fit this bed, and it doesn't leave much room for packing clothes and essentials for a trip. However, I will make it work since I don't want to deal with 2 suitcases and don't want to pay the ridiculous airline fees for extra luggage.
-This will not work as a carry on, for several reasons. 1) The total dimensions are 46.5", 1.5" over the limit set by (some) airlines for carry-ons. 2) There is NO shoulder strap. This is by far the biggest flaw and a huge oversight by Baby Bjorn. This makes it more cumbersome to carry while carrying my child and makes it nearly impossible to carry long distances with anything else in your arms. It only has 2 handles, barely big enough to fit through up to your elbow and still carry it comfortably.
-The mattress sits on the floor. This isn't typically a problem, however we used it camping this past weekend and found that it gave no good insulation between the cold ground and the mattress (like a PnP would), and the mattress got very cold. I would recommend getting a camping air mat or layers of something to put under the entire bed if you are using this for camping in colder areas.
Overall, I think the price is a little high. I would like to see it around $150-175 and no higher. But, it seems to be a good purchase so far and I am so relieved to not have to carry a PnP on all our flights. This is a good investment and I'd recommend it over a PnP any day.
Now for theWONDERFULS on the BABY BJORN BED.....it is made in Europe with BPA and phalate free material, the cover easly zips off the throw in wash, so easy to set up I actually opened the bed with one hand one time (he was sleeping,,,not really recommended but could do if your talented like me) it litterly pops open and unfolds it self, and then you just place soft but firm 2 inch thick plastic (so no pee through leaks) unlike pack n play where it's forever stained. Super light weight, under I say 10 lbs...pack n play is at least 20, cute compact suit case for bed....I can't say enough great things about the bed. I wish I had found it sooner...it has made my life as a mother so much easier! can't say that about to many products. The only NEG is the price....but I am a tight wad and this was so a splurdge for me but one I am so so so glad I made. WORTH EVER PENNY!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks BABY BJORN for thinking of everything on a travel bed!!! Love it! ALso go to there website watch the video to see the bed video (shows you how it works) so neat!
the construction is really sturdy and yet incredibly lightweight. we are able to put it together as easily as it looks in the video on the Bjorn website. it is very compact when folded and in the carrier, which makes it great as a travel crib for the grandparents' house, or even to take to the park for a more secure/sheltered napping area.
the fabric (we have silver) has a sateen finish and wipes off very easily (tested with drool and spit up), and the mesh sides provide ventilation and an opportunity for baby to look out. we haven't yet had the need to wash the casing, but I would bet that with proper care it will stand up and last a long time, as with our other Bjorn products.
