Good points

  • OK to use.
  • Has a pocket.
  • Has wheels with brakes.

But

  • Failed four major safety tests: The supplied mattress is not sufficienty firm and doesn't fit snugly in the corners. Breathable zones don't meet the standard's requirement. The folding mechanism could trap a child’s neck.

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.
