Pack n' Play.. do or don't?

Did any of you mommy's ever buy a Pack n' Play as a bassinet? The Pack n' Plays with adjustable levels? 

If so did you actually use it? Also, which one would you recommend?

I'm having the hardest time finding the one that really jumps out at me, I'm having a little girl and her theme is elephants, monkeys, and giraffes. Her nursery is the Jungle Jill from Carters and they have a Pack n' Play in Jungle Jill but NO ONE sells it, any where. /:

I have the chicco bella playard and i love it. Its my daughters main bed (other than my bed!). And shes slept in it every night for nearly 9 months.

I like the chicco playards because the mattresses are machine washable and much nicer than the graco ones. Graco mattresses are surface clean only.

I use a pack n play for the first year. I use the bassinet attachment for the first two months. It actually helps a lot because after giving birth it can be really painful to bend that far over to pick up baby.

We used the pack n play more when he was an infant. It had the bassinet no changing station. We found it at our local target n had monkeys on it. (Didn't match the theme but it worked for us). Now we use it to hold his toys.

For us, we used it as a changing table... and crap storage dump! until we packed it away!

Our child treated it like lava if we laid him in it to sleep or tried to let him play in it... :)
