TK1E0S201 Shrunks Inflatable Toddler Travel Bed - Cot Size The Shrunks Inflatable Toddler Bed is the perfect portable bed for toddlers and preschoolers. Little children often roll off traditional style airbeds, waking up cold and uncomfortable for the floor! But with the fantastic design and patented side rails on The Shrunks inflatable beds, it is nearly impossible to roll off. Also these beds have the patented Tuckaire™ design feature that allows standard fitted American cot size sheets to be tucked snugly in and around the inner air mattress of the bed, keeping the sheets off the floor. Constructed with the safest materials, The Shrunks Travel Beds are Phthalates-safe, BpA-safe and Lead-safe. Yes there are cheaper airbeds on the market, but these amazing beds from The Shrunks are so superior to any other airbeds we have tried with our children. The sides which prevent rolling are simply genius and the ability to use a fitted sheet is great. All our kids love sleeping on these beds, and often get them out to lie on while watching a movie or for a sleepover in the lounge. A great addition to our camping equipment too! For children 6 years & up, please see the Shrunks Big Kids Travel Bed. Product Features & Benefits: Innovative design offers comfort and safety Patented sheet-tuck feature: Snug fit system allows fitted American cot sheets or blankets to be tucked around the mattress Patented rail design helps prevent your child rolling off Soft and cushy, with a flocked, quilted surface which is comfortable (not sticky like cheap airbeds) Free of BPA, Phthalates & Lead Inflates quickly in 30 seconds Rapid deflation with large exit valve Great solution for a safe night’s rest for a toddler away from home or an eas

Phil & Ted's Traveller

 Assembly is still straight-forward and relatively quick with the V4 Traveller but give yourself an extra 5-10 minutes or so to get the Traveller unpacked and assembled compared to the Baby Bjorn or Drift for the first few times you asemble it. The Traveller is incredibly light weight (2.5kg without mattress) and an excellent choice for both indoors and outdoors. If you need a travel cot to stow away in your suitcase or overhead locker then the Traveller is a great option.


Baby Bjorn

Weighing just under 6kg, the lightweight construction of the Travel Cot Light makes traveling hassle-free for parents. The crib is easy for any adult to carry around the house, pack into a car, or carry through an airport.
