This is the only travel cot that I have come across that has a proper mattress and not a bit of slightly padded board. The mattress bends so that the cot goes inside it and this forms stability within the bag. I loved that this felt like it would be comfortable for my baby especially when going away for a few weeks.
This cot is very light, as the name would suggest, weighing only 6kg so is very easy to transport. I would suggest that it works best for travel by plane as when folded it looks just like a suitcase.
Its folded dimensions are 49 x 60 x 14 cm which is pretty small really, but if you are trying to pack a car then this suddenly seems quite big.
It is this that has made us choose to change from this cot. However, we are an unusual case as we have twins and certainly two of these would not work when packing a car up.
You simply attach the feet and click the legs into place — job done!
It honestly takes around 30 seconds to do this once you have the hand of it. Once opened the dimensions are x 82 x 64 cm which is compact, but plenty big enough for a toddler.
It says it is suitable for up to 3 years old, but my 3-year-old would not be comfortable in this and would certainly be able to climb out so I think 2 is probably more realistic, but I should say my 3-year-old is tall for his age. Phil and Teds Traveller Ultralight We bought these as they fold so small and take up virtually no room in a car that is heavily overloaded with all the stuff you need for travelling with kids.
This travel cot is made from an extremely light weight aluminium frame which makes it lighter than the baby!! It weighs only 3. Once folded it is so small that you could even put it under your buggy to take it with you perhaps on a train journey or take it in hand luggage and yet once it is put up it is a normal size travel cot which would be suitable for babies and toddlers. The packed dimensions are 68 x 25 x 20 cm and the assembled dimensions are x 77 x 66 cm creating a sleep space of x 57 x 66 cm.
Putting it up is not difficult, but it is by no stretch of the imagination a pop up option — this is assembly.
It actually does have the option to use tent pegs to secure it if you were using it as a playpen or perhaps a beach shelter. This travel cot also has the option of buying a UV mesh topper which would protect from the sun during the day or from insects at night.
One thing that I really liked about the Phil and Teds Ultralight Traveller is that the sides can be zipped open which makes getting babies in and out really easy and allows it to be used as a playpen as well without the little ones feeling trapped.
I am also impressed with the self-inflating mattress as this feels really supportive and yet comfortable. I do understand that this has been rectified with the new model.
They are simply too big for any gap that may be there. As far as sleeping goes we had no issues with getting the littles to settle in the cot and I think they liked that they could see one another. My twins used this cot until they were around 2 years old and then they started trying to climb out. They are on the 91st centile though so you may get a bit longer out of these if your little ones are not quite as tall.
Although it is easy not complicated to erect, the design does rely on some tension so a reasonable amount of strength is required. Always read the Instructions carefully.
A downside on this cot is potentially the price. Despite being expensive you can see why — this is well made, unbelievably lightweight, small and easy to put together.
I would say that this is truly a travel cot made for travel as it is so light and small you will hardly even know you have it with you. This travel cot is 21 x 21 x 75 cm when folded so pretty compact, but it weighs 10kg so whilst it would be easy to check in at an airport it is less ideal for travel where you need to carry it for a while or for long car journeys where is would certainly impact petrol consumption.
Once opened its dimensions are 74 x x 74 cm which is a brilliant size if you want to use it as a playpen too and certainly means you could use it for up to a 3-year-old. You might just need to be sure you have a sizeable hotel room as this is essentially normal cot size once it is put up. It is so big that when our twins were babies they would just share this cot. The bad thing about this travel cot is the mattress. It is basically just a folded board with very limited padding.
