Little Tykes Pack 'n' Play travel cot.
Cerys , our Grand-daughter is now five months old , and a few months ago became too big to use her moses basket when sleeping over .Wanting to continue with the babysitting sleep-over it was decided to purchase a cot , however space is a premium , and having a cot erected full time was not an option . Erecting and dismantling a cot for every sleep-over is also inpractical . Therefore the only other option was a travel cot .
There are many such devices on the market , and dependent on manufacturer , the prices vary quite considerably .The wife and I shopped around , and eventually opted for the Little Tykes ' Pack 'n' Play ' travel cot , available at Mothercare at around £40.00 .
So what do you get for your money ?
1) Instruction sheet - in plain English , and essential to read .2) Collapsed travel cot .
3) Cot mattress4) Storage bag.
The Cot :
Setting up :
Basically you have to part open the cot , which allows for the side rods to clip into place . Each side has two internal rods that lock into a catch . Once these have locked , you simply push down on the centre of the cot , and there you have it one erected cot . All you have to then do is place in your mattress and make up the cot .To collapse , remove the mattress , pull from the centre of the cot to patially collapse , then unlock the rods via a press of some release buttons , then finally pull it all together .
Once done , you can do this operation in a few seconds flat .When storing , fold the mattress into a square shape , place into storage bag , and place cot within mattress inner space , then zip it up .
Collapsed :- 32" tall , 10" * 10" square .Other uses :
As well as travel cot , this item can also be used as a play pen - therefore double value .Value for money ?
