BabyBjörn travel cot in Silver

BabyBjörn Travel Cot

It's light, durable, simple to set up and comes complete in a carry case with a mattress. The full mesh sides enable you to see your baby. Removable and machine washable cot textiles which are a huge plus for any travel cot.  

Suitable for babies/toddlers aged 0-3 yrs. 

What we think

We loved the look of this very pretty travel cot which exudes scandi style. It was super easy to put up and fold away and was light and easy to move around. It's not the cheapest on the market but this is a good example of 'You get what you pay for' . This really does have great quality build and materials and you can also remove all of the textiles and wash them - a fantastic benefit when you have a small baby - vomit and accidents WILL be part of your life for some time and being able to strip down the cot and clean it prioperly is really useful.

SpaceCot weighs just 6kg, giving parents the freedom to enjoy every moment with their child, on the go, with friends or at home, it is convenient to be carried and stored in the house or car boot. 

SpaceCot is designed with all the strength and comfort of a permanent cot and the suspended base protects little ones from draughts. it comes with a detachable cot levels which can be used as a travel crib when baby is below 6 months, and a play pen for up to 30 months. 

What we think

We loved this product. It was really easy to use and sturdy. The materials are quality made and when folded it's lightweight easy to transport. We loved the fact that it fitted neatly into the car boot so was easy use for it's intended purpose ( which not all travel cots are!). At just under £150, it's mid-range price makes it all the better value for money.

The Arc 2

The Arc 2 Travel Cot

Weighing in at just 2.5kg, the LittleLife Arc 2 is both lightweight and highly compact. The unique two-pole asymmetric frame offers great stability and easy access through the enlarged zip-down front panel.
 
What we think 

The Arc 2 Travel Cot is spacious yet it has a small footprint which means it can be errected in the smallest of spaces, inside or outside. Ideal for travel, it packs away neatly into its own rucksack.This really is a true travel cot that you can take anywhere. It's also the lightest one we have ever seen and folds away into it's own nifty backpack so is perfect for popping into a cramped car when you are off glamping or sliding up into the overhead plane lockers on your way to Greece. The Pole frame is easy to assemble  (with a little firm handling) and once errected, your little one will have their own cosy tent bed. This is a truly space saving light travel cot and at just over £100, it's also really great value for money.
