Great value travel cot that’s perfect for the odd night away for those with a limited budget. Not the sturdiest, despite its hefty weight, but as a bonus it can be used as a playpen too.
This super cheap, easy to assemble travel cot comes at an unbelievably low price, but there are concessions to size and durability as a result.

We think it’s ideal though for those on a tight budget, or for someone who only needs to use a travel cot occasionally. It’s compact, so easy to store, and has good sturdy handles for carrying it about, but it weighs 11kg, making it one of the heaviest we’ve tested so far. You can get extra use by doubling it up as a playpen, it has mesh sides so your baby will be able to see out, or as somewhere for downstairs naps. Overall, however, the testers felt it was a little flimsy and on the small side, especially for larger toddlers. Much better for the odd night away at Grandma’s rather than a long holiday. Suitable from birth to roughly two years.
