It really is very easy to set up in seconds and it stores away easily as well,
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The Amazon product listing has all the cots sizes and design details - it quickly opens up large and just as quickly folds down small to store in a small laptop bag sized case. Weighing only 5kg, the cot's easy to move about, whether in the case or when set up. Flipping it up from the storage bag is as easy as on the video, the cot unfolds via a hinged top and the fitted legs slide out and stretch the material under the cot, with the tension giving the cot rigidity. However the cots real stability comes from the heavier base built into the separate mattress - so the folding BabyJorn mattress supplied with the cot must be fitted to prevent an active baby or toddler tipping the cot over. Our active baby is well contained by the cot, although she's not toddling yet. It's fairly comfortable putting the baby to sleep as the cot walls are low enough - lifting baby out is no problem for us (we're average height).
There's no age limit to the travel cot, just the recommendation that you should stop using it when your toddler is able to climb out of it. The cots well built enough to last for a few follow on babies after that. The base of the cot/mattress rests firmly on the floor and all the cot's strong soft silver coloured material is nicely finnished polyester that has been "tested and approved in accordance with Oeko-Tex Standard 100, class 1 for baby products, guaranteed harmless to children's sensitive skin and will not trigger allergies." The mattress cover and the cot material are machine washable (at 60oC and 40oC respectively - you can't tumble dry them but they air dry quickly being mostly polyester. The cot fabric is easily removed and replaced by four zips at the top of the cot and by slotting lugs holding the leg poles on. The mattress foam isn't machine washable.
The whole cot goes from a footprint on the floor of 32 x 24 inches when set up, down to 24 x 6 inches wide when in it's carry bag and tucked in beside the chest of drawers. It's easy to carry by air or transport by car and really is a doddle to set up - and the cots far better than the battered ones you normally find in the cottage or hotel. And the grandparents really like it. Only thing against it is the price, but it seems far nicer than cheaper travel cots in terms of build quality, stability, lightness and design. So it's a hit and 5*.
