PRODUCT: Koo-di (formerly Samsonite) Sun & Sleep Pop-Up Travel Bubble Cot (www.koo-di.co.uk)Samsonite Sun & Sleep Pop-Up Travel Bubble Cot

DESCRIPTION: A pop-up travel cot which is designed to be ultra portable and comes in a storage bag with handles. Includes integrated zip-up mosquito net and black-out mesh, padded mattress, 7 x struts, corner fastenings and integrated pocket. Dimensions are approx. L110 x W60 x H73cm. Suitable to sleep children aged 6 months to 2 years (maximum weight 15kg, maximum height 82cm).

GOOD POINTS: This particular travel cot is one of the most lightweight and portable of all the travel cots we have so far reviewed (weighs less than 0.3kg), and is the perfect solution for sleeping a young child on holiday, weekends away or in your own home (although it is really designed for occasional use only).

This Koo-di travel cot is incredibly simple to erect and simply springs open in seconds once removed from its storage bag. A number of struts (of different lengths) are provided which feed quickly and easily into designated strut runners across the roof of the cot to help maintain its shape and stability. The runners have Velcro tabs on the ends to keep the struts in position. The cot also comes with a basic but comfy mattress (complies to BS7177), which folds out and fastens to the base of the cot via further Velcro patches. An additional inflatable mattress compatible with this cot can be purchased separately.

The cot is just as simple to pack away. The struts and mattress first need to be removed, and then the cot laid flat and twisted round on itself to flatten it. A zipped compact storage bag is included which comfortably fits all the cot parts and has handles for easy transportation (dimensions of the bag are L60 x W30 x D18cm).

The cot is made from breathable fabric panels (with an attractive neutral star design), and each side has integrated mosquito nets and sun mesh blinds (i.e. blackouts) which can be fully or partially opened/closed and which block out 93% of UVA and UVB rays, as well as provide a darkened environment for your child to sleep, day or night! While the blackout blinds are zipped on both sides of the cot, only the mosquito net on the front side is zipped to allow entry and access to your child.

On the back of the cot is a useful integrated pocket which sits between the blackout and mosquito nets. The corners of the cot also have Velcro loops to allow them to be fastened around fixed furniture if required.

The Sun & Sleep Pop-Up Bubble Cot really is an excellent quality travel cot with some nice design features and great attention to detail, making it a wonderfully compact alternative to meet all your child's travel requirements.

BAD POINTS: Quite expensive but you get good quality for your money and excellent compactness. The cot comes with a basic padded mattress but if you want to use it on a longer term basis and provide maximum comfort and support for your child, then you will probably need to invest in the inflatable mattress and fitted sheet as well, which are sold separately.

PRICE: Approx. £65
