DESCRIPTION: Lightweight travel cot with mesh sides. Features include zip-up door, storage pocket and mosquito net. Consists of travel bag, frame, and removable mattress. Open size is 77cm x 131cm x 71.5cm, mattress size is 120cm x 60cm, and it weighs 10.6kg.

ASSEMBLY: Very quick and easy to assemble. The assembly is similar to other travel cots, with an umbrella-style folding mechanism. The side bars are pulled straight, and locked in place. The mattress is then simply positioned and held in place using Velcro fastenings. Disassembly is the reverse of the above, and just as quick.

GOOD POINTS: This cot is very reasonably priced, and is as quick and easy to assemble as other cots we have reviewed, but in our opinion is a better shape. It is longer and thinner than other travel cots, and so better caters for older and taller children. Additionally this makes it easier to fit into the narrower spaces generally provided when in holiday accommodation.

The cot is made from easy-care material which is easy to keep clean. It is sturdy and the centre legs give added support. The cot can double up as a playpen which makes it ideal for using either at home or taking away with you, as baby can be securely confined. The mesh sides also allow you clear visibility of your child. There is a handy pocket on the exterior of one end, which is ideal for storage. At the other end is a zip-up crawling hatch for older children, which is only accessible from the outside. The travel bag has a useful handle to make it easy to carry, and it fits easily into a car boot.

Another benefit with this travel cot is the inclusion of a mosquito net, which is ideal for the more adventurous holidays! In contrast to other travel cots, the Kiddi-o Travel Cot comes with a three year manufacturer’s guarantee.

BAD POINTS:The cot is heavy to carry for any length of time. As with all travel cots, the base is very low which is not ideal for lifting a young baby into and out of all the time, especially if they are heavy. The sensor pads of sound/movement monitors can be positioned under the mattress on the centre legs, although not very securely and the pads can easily slip or trigger the alarm if baby moves to the sides.

PRICE: £29.99, available sporadically from Lidl.
