Test results

Ease of use

Good points

  • Has suitable breathable zones.
  • OK to use.
  • Light to lift.


  • Failed one major safety test: the supplied mattress is not firm enough.

How we test

Our test was based on the Australian and New Zealand standard AS/NZS 2195:1999 “Folding cots – Safety requirements”. We also tested against the breathability clause in the revised 2010 standard.

We check the folding mechanism, stability, that there are no entrapment hazards, sharp edges or points; that the mattress is firm enough and fits snugly; and that there are breathable zones at the sides and ends of the cot (in case a baby rolls face-first against the side or end).

We won’t recommend a portable cot if it has a major safety failure.

For ease of use, we assessed how easy it is to set up, pack and store the cot and its accessories.
