We spoke to these real parent testers to get their review...
How did this product make your life easier?
Georgina: I think the venture Airpod travel cot is a really good purchase. It only takes a minute to assemble and the same time to pack away which makes it a great travel sleep solution for our son. It’s easily portable which means we have used it when we visited friends for the evening and when travelling to stay with my parents for a weekend.
Caroline: This is extremely easy and quick to assemble and dissemble. I often struggle with putting together travel cots but managed to do this with ease. It is also very light so you can pick it up with one hand and the baby with the other. I also liked the instructions which were clear and user friendly. The shape of the cot also means it fits in the car with other luggage.
Jamielee: The airpod travel cot did somewhat help to make my life easier as a mother. When traveling away we took the cot with us and found it very helpful. It comes with its own carrier bag which meant we were able to store it safely and pack it into the car with ease, it also meant that we did not have to look for an alternative safe sleeping arrangement for our newborn which took away some of the stress of traveling with a baby.
Would you recommend this product to other parents?
Laura: I would recommend this travel cot to family and friends as it is very easy and straight forward to use. There are instructions printed at the bottom which will be helpful in the future when we would have lost the instruction leaflet! The poles fit easily into the sides and feet of the cot and the mattress is a reassuringly snug fit into the cot. The cot is also very lightweight and compact which makes it easy to transport when going away. The colour is a nice and neutral colour which is nice and isn't decorated in typical baby-ish designs. The mattress felt a bit thin initially but our son didn't have any problem sleeping in it and the mattress can also be wiped clean which helps with keeping it hygienic.
Grace: One of the main reasons I love this cot so much is that I will be able to continue to use it until my baby is at least 2. The sides are mesh so you can easily check on baby without having to get out of bed. The mesh sides will also mean that we will be able to use it as a play pen when he is a little bigger.
Jessica: I would definitely recommend the Airpod Baby & Toddler Travel Cot tommy friends and family. Not only does the Airpod Baby & Toddler Travel Cot make a great cot but it also created a safe place for my baby to play during the day. It has so many great uses. The design is amazing. How easy it is to use it so beneficial. Brilliant product.
Would you choose this product above all others on the market?
Georgiana: I like the product a lot. I really like the portability of the product and the fact it could easily be used for camping holidays. I also like how lightweight it is - that’s important for mums who might be carrying a baby with this product and/or have weakened core muscles. The colour isn’t hugely exciting or fun for a child, but I think it looks fairly sleek and stylish.
Aimee: I would choose this product over any other as it is affordable. The design is really good as it is compact and it does the job you want it to. It is universal and can use it for different genders and fits in with colour schemes. You can rest assured that your child is safe and comfortable and would have a good sleep in there.
Amy: Unfortunately probably not, the higher price tag does not outweigh the benefits offered in terms of convenience. The smaller folded size is great and makes transport a lot easier. Overall the product is great, lovely soft mattress and soft edges, the inward slope makes it very stable and secure, and the absence of any framing underneath improves comfort.
What changes would you make to this product?
Wendy: I would improve the strength of the material. The mesh surrounding the cot is thin and I would worry that it may rip easily and at nearly £70 I would not want to replace it! For this reason I would be hesitant to also use it as a play pen on holiday with toys in which may get caught up on the sides of it.
Jamielee: The one thing I would change about this product is the setup. It comes with separate pieces for the legs and feet which you have to attach to the main fabric of the bed. I would have preferred it to be a pop-up style cot rather than one that you have to piece together. The instructions are also printed onto the fabric base of the bed.
Aimee: I wouldn't want to change anything about this product. I was really happy with it. It did the job and it was really compact and did the job that we needed it to. It fitted in the boot of our car for holidays but also provided a great space for our child to sleep safely. It was also there if we needed a safe place for him ro play. Definitely one of the better ones on the market and we were very happy with it.
