We received this bassinet a lot faster than quoted which was nice. It came secured in the original box. Packing was great. The instruction book was easy to follow and accurate. It was easy to assemble. It took me, with a big pregnant belly, about an hour while I also watched TV. Parts are secure, not wobbly. The mattress pad is perfect, it shouldn't be thick and fluffy so it is nice, soft , and safe. The vibration is wonderful. Music is typical for any device, certainly not Mozart but soothing for a baby. The nature sounds are nice. Light gradually turns on with a simple push of a button. The incline piece is easy to remove. Nice mesh storage area on bottom. I don't anticipate to use it for more than 2-3 months and so the price was great. So far, I am very happy with purchase. This is my third baby and I like this bassinet much better already than the ones that hook to the bed for easy access. The colors are definitely gender neutral. Mostly cream color with light pastel green/brown polka dots. Baby is not here yet, but I'm happy so far!
