Joovy Foocot- Our Solution To Sleeping Away From Home

Every few weekends my kids each take turns staying the night at their Grammy’s house.  The guest bedroom doubles as their room, as it is full of all of their toys.  However, so far they’re all still a bit too nervous to stay in their room alone; they prefer to sleep in Grammy’s room.  She used to lay a few blankets or a comforter down on the floor for them to sleep on, but that is history now! Now the kids sleep in comfort on their Joovy Foocot!

foocot1The Foocot from Joovy is a comfy child’s cot that sits just 9 inches off of the ground- perfect to avoid injury if your child tends to roll and far less scary than a tall one would be for a small child.  It folds out and folds up so simply, which is a must especially when the kids want to do it themselves! It comes with a super soft and comfy 100% organic cotton fitted sheet, and has 2 storage pockets that are the perfect size to hold necessities or books and toys.

fitted sheetIt comes with a travel bag with strap which makes it perfect to take along on sleepovers, vacations, daycare, camping and more!  It’s sturdy enough to hold a child up to 75 lbs and 48 inches tall, but is lightweight enough that even a child can carry it.

LightweightThe cot and bag are made with top grade nylon fabric, which will not only last and stand up to even the toughest of beatings, but also can clean easily with a damp cloth.

It’s also sold in 4 fun colors- Blueberry, Greenie, Orangie and Pink- making it pleasing for any child!

My kids love sleeping on this when they go to Grammy’s house; They love that it’s something special just for them!  It is small enough that it fits well even in Grammy’s small room.  Grammy adds a blanket or two in top of the fitted sheet to add a little more cushion, so we’ll probably end up purchasing the quilted mattress pad that is available separately through Joovy.

The only problem we have is that my oldest is too tall and too heavy to be able to use it, and my second oldest (my daughter)- while not too heavy- is almost too tall as well.  However, she has still slept on it and I anticipate that she will until she is exactly the max height.  My oldest has expressed great upset with this, as it looks so cool (and the one we have is in his favorite color-green)… Getting older can be rough! 😉

I’m not sure what I like best about this, as it has so many great things about it.  I definitely love that it’s quick and easy to set up, and the travel bag is fantastic as well.

travel bagI also appreciate that it folds up small enough that I can easily store it (or Grammy can easily store it) until we’re ready to use it again.

Since we go camping a few times a year and try and take at least one vacation a year, I am looking forward to having this to accompany us!  It will be perfect at the hotel, since our toddler will be too big to fit in the travel crib we have always used for him, and maybe when we camp he will also sleep on the Foocot instead of insisting on squeezing in with me!

  1. Laura Jacobson says:

    Oh this is a neat item! We travel to relatives from time to time and its always hard with a toddler for everyone to fit in the double bed. This would be so perfect for Carter to sleep on!

  2. We love Joovy products! I’ll have to check this one out as well.

  3. That would be great to have when we go on vacation for my grandson! What a nice product!

  4. What a great idea! I have one of their strollers. I’ll also keep this in mind.

  5. i like the storablity of it. Its tough to find space for everything already.

  6. Now THAT is a great idea!

  7. Amanda Alvarado says:

    This is so neat! Is it more comfortable than a regular cot or about the same? This would be great when we visit my sister. We could put dd (who is 5 and growing like a weed!) on it next to the bed instead of the 3 of us sleeping in a full size bed!

  8. Carrie Phelps says:

    I’m a childcare provider and would love to get my hands on about three of these. They’re wonderful! I love the ease of use and storage.

  9. that would have been great to have when i worked at the daycare and my kids were sleeping on the cots there

  10. I’ve been wanting to get a couple of these for my daycare kids!

  11. Elaine Heaney says:

    this cot is amazing!!!!!!!

  12. Wow this is great! We spend a decent amount of time at my sisters house and ever since my daughter grew out of her pack and play she just sleeps in a sleeping bag on the floor. This would be so great to have. It looks like it might work as a carry on for travel as well!

  13. wonderful for sleepovers at grannys house

  14. This looks perfect for visits to grandma’s

  15. Melissa Henry says:

    What a cute little cot! I will have to remember these when my kids are old enough to use it.

  16. I love Joovy! I would be interested in trying it out the next time we travel, instead of an air mattress. I think the quilted mattress pad would make it perfect.

  17. Mary Happymommy says:

    I like how portable it is. It looks really practical for travel.

  18. I love this! I really like the storage pockets, the organic sheet and how easy it is to set up and take down!

  19. Thanks for the review ..My Girls would loves spending the night at Auntys if they had Joovy Foocot They dont like sleeping on the couch lol

  20. This sounds great! for my nieces when they come visit me or their grandma (my mom) I don’t have a spare bedroom so they end up sleeping on couches but this looks much better and probably more comfortable! 🙂

  21. This is great! We have a family of five and when we go on trips we always have to be creative for the 5th person in hotels, this would definitely solve the problem

  22. We travel a lot and camp during the summer. THis would be perfect to take with us. I hadn’t heard of these before.

  23. This is pretty neat, we could definitely need it around here.

  24. That is so cool, we could definitely need one of these. We have the house full of kids this week, as we have overnight visitors.
