This super lightweight, easy-to-set-up (just 15 seconds!) travel crib actually folds small enough to fit in the overhead compartment of an airplane, and it’s got backpack straps so you can tote it wherever you go. It converts to a rocking bassinet so perfect for at-home use from the earliest days, and it’s side-zip means it also can be used as a play area for an older toddler.

The Catch: Parents complained about the excessive amount of velcro tabs needed to secure the mattress.

  • A must have. Small/ light enough to fit in a suitcase, the flat sleep surface is comfortable for baby, sets up quickly, and the zipper is great for grandma and grandpa or laying with a fussy baby. Nov 16, 2018

    We use this as our main crib. There’s no weight limit since the mattress is on the floor. I also love the opening – convenient for soothing/lying next to baby (lifesaver when sleep training). Nov 05, 2018

    Lightweight and easy to set up and takedown. Great for travel. Oct 27, 2018

  • Easily set up and packed down and the entire fabric is removable and washable. Small enough to be used as a carry on. PERFECT for travel. The mattress is a little more plush than I expected as well. Oct 12, 2018

  • Pros- wonderful to travel with, packs up small, lightweight, big enough to lay in there with baby if needed, non toxic, washable. Cons- sits on the floor, not easy to pack up, thin mattress. Sep 27, 2018

  • Soooooo good. Portable, actually easy to set up and take down. Our kid slept in it from 7- 11 months. Sep 12, 2018

  • Great for travel. LO sleeps very well in it. It folds up small, and has a case with handle. It's easy to open up and collapse. Aug 29, 2018

  • I really love the bassinet feature but hate that the full size crib puts her directly on the ground. I wish it was elevated somewhat. Aug 28, 2018

  • We love this product. It is so simple to put together and my little one seems to enjoy being in here. The side zip is a nice bonus feature. Aug 10, 2018

  • It is so lightweight and easy to assemble! I love that the case has backpack straps as well. The zipper door has made it an excellent play yard for my 8 month old who likes to crawl in and out. Jul 19, 2018

    We love to travel and used this multiple times with our oldest. Light-weight, easy to set up, and our toddler slept very well in it. The Velcro tabs are kind of a pain, but otherwise, we are happy! Jun 01, 2018

Everyone
  • Q: I would like to be able to move this between rooms and also between floors of the house. Will it fit through doorways? Thank you!

    asked by Nina D. - Mar 19, 2014

  • It might take some maneuvering. The good thing is it's really light, but the mattress takes a little time to Velcro to the base, which you wouldn't want to have to do often. I would suggest checking the measurements against your doors to be sure.

    Roslyn L. - Mar 19, 2014

  • Yes, absolutely. It folds in seconds and is very light weight!
