10 Best Travel Cots Your Kids Will Love
The Little Life Arc 2
This travel cot is one of the most versatile options available. At only 2.5kg, it is light weight and easy to tow along. As its name suggests, its arch shape coupled with a zip enclosure at the top lets it multi-task as a tent, while its see-through mesh gives it the added functionality to facilitate easy supervision of your child. Priced at mid-to-high end of the range at £89.99, the multi-faceted Little Life Arc 2 is well worth the money.
The BabyStart Deluxe
This travel cot is slated as the luxury option of travel cots currently available on the market, which costs about £59.99. The included bassinet allows it to be used for children of all sizes. The changing bin is a nifty feature, as is its overhead arched toy bar. Two wheels on the front end of the cot are a nice touch; however, it does not get any votes for mobility as it weighs in at 15kg.
Baby Dan Travel Cot
The Baby Dan Travel Cot is a great option for the budget conscious, costing less than £64. Being longer and higher than standard sized cots, the Baby Dan Travel Cot is ideal for children as tall as 36 inches. Not only does it offer great manoeuvrability with two front wheels, it also includes breaks, providing a great safety option and a peace of mind from the added security.
The BabyBjörn Travel Cot Light
The fourth best travel cot is suitable for not only new-born babies but also for children as old as three years of age. BabyBjörn Travel Cot Light is light, as the name suggests, strong, and is easily foldable. It is perfect for keeping an eye on the little one as the cot comes with fully visible mesh sides. However, this combination of compactness and sturdiness does not come cheap, costing the highest among the options reviewed at £199.95. Nonetheless, the BabyBjörn Travel Cot is a favourite for many parents who prefer the easy to fold and go design.
Hauck Disney BabyCentre
Best suited for new-borns, the Hauck Disney BabyCentre comes with several accessories, such as the clip on changing bin, a bassinet, an accessories tray and a toy bar. Offering easy mobility with its two front wheels and a great space saver with plenty of space to tuck away baby changing items, it is modestly priced at £149.99.
Nuna Sena Mini Travel Cot
Don’t be fooled the name of the Nuna Sena Mini Travel Cot, this versatile travel cot’s ingenuous criss-cross design lets you quickly snap it into place and then quickly fold it and go. Its minimalist chic style can serve for years to come for your child from new-born to toddler stage as this cot can also serve as a play pen. The Nuna Sena Mini Travel Cot is well worth the cost of £120.
John Lewis Bassinette Travel Cot
The John Lewis Bassinette Travel Cot comes equipped with a bassinet, and is ideal for easy transport with its four wheels. Intuitively designed to serve as a cot for babies or toddlers and will also double as a playpen. Its storage side pockets are also great space saving ideas and its mesh walls provide great ventilation and easy supervision. It's price is about £89.
The Babyway Koochiku Mimas Luxury Baby Travel Cot
This cot is probably the best travel cot for the money, about £59.99. Ideal for use from birth to as old as 5 years of age, the Babyway Koochiku Mimas Luxury Baby Travel Cot comes equipped with its own bassinet, easy-installation changing station, a zipped entrance when you want it to serve as a play pen and mesh walls. This value buy is the best travel cot available in our opinion that serves all travel cot needs at a fire sale rate.
Graco Contour Storage
This is the ultimate all in one travel cot option available at £129.99. It is a great value purchase among all the travel cot reviews conducted. It is equipped with a changing station, a toy bar, intuitively designed storage shelves, a bassinet, a vibrating function and a nightlight. All the bells and whistles are a sure attraction at a reasonable price, probably the best in its peer range.
Koo-di Pop-Up Travel Bassinette
The Koo-di Pop-Up Travel Bassinette at £33.99 is almost like a carrycot but is a much more practical iteration in terms of a baby bed. It weighs about 1 kg, suitable for babies up to six months of age. Of all the options available, the Koo-di Pop-Up Travel Bassinette is probably not the best travel cot on the market given its size and suitable-age limitations.
