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!
The 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.
It 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.
The 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.
I 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!
