It’s probably tough looking for a highly-acclaimed air purifier, especially when you’ve just had a new addition and you’re looking for the best air purifier for the baby. In this case, you would do well to check out the Vornadobaby Nursery Air Purifier because it was designed and constructed, specifically, with babies in mind!

Why We Like It – Vornadobaby Purio Air Purifier

Vornadobaby Purio Air Purifiers are an effective three-stage filtration system for any baby’s room. It uses a True HEPA Filter to capture any contaminants, including mold, and even has filter replacement reminders so you can clear that thought from your mind and focus on the baby. Although, if you’d like a unit that can project pictures on the ceiling to keep your baby entertained, you might want to check out our Germ Guardian AC4150BLCA review.

  • Pre-Filter and Activated Carbon Filter
  • Filter Cover Replacement Reminders
  • Night Light and Two Child Locks
  • Small Room Coverage
  • High Power Consumption


The Vornado Air Nursery Purifier employs a three-stage filtration system. This includes a pre-filter that utilizes HEPA filtration to capture large particles and an activated carbon filter. The carbon filtration will keep the room smelling clean. If you want a purifier and humidifier combo to keep the room fresh and moist, try the Levoit H132. You can also check out our Venta Air Washer LW25 review if you want a filter-less air purifier.

Although Vornado doesn’t have a suggested room size for this air purifier, it should be able to maximize air quality in a room of about 125 square feet. It’s not bad for a baby’s purifier, but not exactly stellar for a purifier as a whole. If you do want something with an insane amount of coverage, check out the Rabbit Air Minusa2 for its over 800 square feet of coverage.


The Purio Air Purifier utilizes a True HEPA Filter that can capture 99.97% of airborne particles as small as 0.3 microns. These airborne contaminants include allergens, virus particles, pollen, mold, and fungi particles for clean and healthy air for your baby. If you’re looking for something designed specifically for mold, check out the Levoit LV-PUR131S. However, you should take a look at our Wein AS300 Personal Air Purifier review if you want to get a personal purifier.


You probably won’t be moving the filter from the baby’s room after you get it in. but it’s nice to know that, at eight pounds, it’ll be easy to get it in in the first place. It’s also nice to know that it’s quiet, providing just a sweet white noise, which ensures a baby can sleep through the night while the unit is on. It also has filter reminders so you don’t have to keep checking it every single time.


Customer reviews are largely positive with a 4.5/5 star rating on Amazon. The Purio also has a night glow option which acts as a night light for the little one. Further, it has two, not just one, child safety locks to protect both the control panel and the filter. You should be aware, though, that power consumption is on the high side and will probably cost about $25 per year to run.

Vornadobaby Purio Air Purifier Wrap Up

It’s always good when a household appliance is quiet, but it’s even more imperative when that household contains a baby. The power consumption is a little high though, which is a shame considering the smaller room coverage. Still, if you do decide on the Vornadobaby, you should be happy with the results.
