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.

    My baby refuses to nap in the playard, while it's not the placards fault, it was a waste for us. Also it's not as easy to pack up as I thought. it is now half folded in the basement. Aug 01, 2020

  • Expensive for lack of additional features. Pack and play seems like a better investment with more versatile usage options Jul 31, 2020

  • Love this for travel, easy to set up, lightweight, small footprint and looks great! I especially love the black mesh to make it a little darker. Jul 26, 2020

  • Love that this has made traveling so much easier! The travel bag has straps for a back pack and is so easy to open up. We’ve taken this on so many trips! My 17 month old sleeps really well in it! Jul 26, 2020

    I take this with me everywhere! it's easy to move and my baby loves sleeping in it. I also like how it grows with baby as he gets older. Jul 23, 2020

    Use this with my middle daughter. It's easy to transport and easy to set up. She enjoys having her own space Jul 21, 2020

  • Super easy to set up, we also have the bassinet and having both is great for sleep and play Jun 29, 2020

  • Huge fan of this product. We actually use it as our baby's full-time crib. The zipper feature is a big help for sleep training as I can comfort her without picking her up. Very unique! Jun 25, 2020

  • 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!

  • 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.

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