Baby Gizmo Spotlight Video Review: Nuna Sena

Nuna Sena

The Leaf isn’t the only fabulous new product from the new-to-the-US Dutch company, Nuna. Last week we introduced you to the Leaf and this week it is all about the Sena.

The Nuna Sena is a playard (travel cot) that will have parents swooning over its smart design that eliminates the usual frustrations of how it opens and the closes that is often associated with travel cribs and playards. The chic Nuna Sena comes in a full-size and a mini version and thanks to the clever zigzag leg design–it pops open easily into a soft, sturdy sleep or play space, and then refolds with just one hand that is easy for even grandma to master.

Another cool and unique feature of the Sena is that it is the only “cot” that has a bassinet portion that folds with the frame. That’s right – instead of removing the entire bassinet portion every time you want to fold it, simply remove the bassinet and the entire thing folds in one piece. Genius.

The Sena sports a full-surround of mesh for plenty of air circulation and the fabric is 100% organic cotton. The full-size Sena measures 41″L x 29″W x 30.7″H and weighs in at 25.4 lbs. The mini version is 35″L x 24″W x 26″H and weighs 19.6 lbs. These travel cots are available now and retail for $199 and $149 (mini).

The metal bars are under the pad. Not on the top. Children don’t come in contact with them.


Are the metal bars a problem for newborns…
— seems like it could be a problem.


Is the metal bars a problem for newborns– doesn’t seem like it would be.


I would be interested to know how this compares to the Breeze as well. Thank you ahead of time for your response.

Nuna Sena = Aprica Haven, but for $75.00 more. Yes, they are the same playpen made by the same Asian manufacturer, but with a color change – black to Tan (Safari) or Navy Blue. Babies R Us carried the Aprica Haven until it was discontinued earlier this year. Now, it is being re-distributed by Nuna for a significantly higher price. It’s not really “Dutch Designed” as Nuna claims – it was originally manufactured for Aprica of Japan, which is part of Newell Rubbermaid. So, you pay 75 bucks for change to the colors Tan/Navy Blue, re-branded by a “European” company.… Read more »

If you were to purchase a new playyard/travel cot today, which one would it be?

Did you prefer the Nuna Sena or the 4Moms Breeze?

Have you ever reviewed the Guava Family Lotus Travel Crib?



So, I have the Aprica Haven, which is exactly like this play yard, just a different color way. What is the relationship between the two companies? I’m so curious! We love ours, btw. Easy food and great design without paying 100 more for a Breeze.


Hi Hollie,

Great review! I’m totally in love with this play yard. Just a quick question, for the bassinet option, do you need to buy a separate mattress for the baby to sleep in through the night because of the metal rods? Or is it comfortable enough for the baby to just sleep directly in the bassinet? Thanks!
