Quick and easy to put up, this cot wins in the DIY stakes. But it loses marks for its comfort levels, which we felt should be more for the price. Good for those short on space, it’s easy to transport, too.
The Dream n Play is a basic, easy to assemble cot that's ideal for those with less space as it's narrower than average, plus the longer length means it’s good for taller babies. It’s light, but also very flimsy, so our testers questioned its quality and comfort which they felt should have been greater for it’s mid range price ticket.
The cot has good carry handles for transporting it. It’s a shame that the mesh sides looked like they’d rip easily, and the mattress material was very noisy, with one tester reporting that it rustled loudly every time their baby moved, keeping them awake. We think that the Dream n Play is best to use for one-night stays, maybe at the grandparents or for very short trips away. It’s extremely easy to assemble, but very basic, and not the comfiest model on the market.
