The Leaf isn’t the only fabulous new product from the new-to-the-US Dutch company, Nuna. The smart design of the Nuna Sena will have parents swooning over this design that eliminates frustrations 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 for a quick getaway the next morning. 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. The Nuna Sena is available now and retails for $219.
