Holiday Travel Made Easy with BABYBJORN’s Travel Crib Light 2- Review and #Giveaway | 2013 Holiday Gift Guide

BBlogoRebecca received the following product for review purposes. All thoughts expressed are her own.

Even though my family doesn’t travel a whole lot, a portable crib has always been on my list of must haves for my babies.  And over the years the one we had has gotten quite a bit of use.  From my own kids to out of town guests, we’ve had lots of little kiddos in our play/sleep crib.  It’s stayed in great shape through all three of my children, the only problem is it was such a pain to put together.  In fact, in five years I was never once able to put it together by myself….shhh don’t tell.  Aren’t mom’s supposed to have some sixth sense that allows them to use all baby gear?  Well, this mom definitely didn’t magically get that skill just because I had kids.  My husband always had to put our travel crib together for me, and even he would get annoyed with how user friendly it wasn’t.  This one reason alone was why when I watched the YouTube video of how to set up the BABYBJORN travel crib I immediately wanted one.  In the video it was less than 30 seconds and the crib was set up.  Now, I figured seeing as I’m baby gear challenged it would probably take me a little longer than that, but even if it took me five minutes I would still be further ahead than I was with my current crib.

Travel Crib light 2Needless to say I was excited our BABYBJORN Travel Crib Light 2 arrived at our house.  When I opened up the box and saw how compact the carrying case was I was a little concerned that the size of the crib was going to be a little smaller than I was expecting.  But, I was wrong!  It just folds up into a super compact size which makes it great for storing and for taking with you wherever you need it. 

Crib in carrying caseIt is also very lightweight, my 3 year old was even able to pick up the case.  (He was very impressed with how strong he was when he did it too!)  As I opened up the box and began to look for instructions on how to put the crib together I couldn’t find any.  Then I realized on the package there was a series of three pictures and those three pictures were the instructions.  Seriously, that’s it.  And you know what?  That’s all you needed.  Even I could figure it out from that!  And I’m proud to say that after I removed all of the packaging and actually tried to set it up I had it together in less than one minute.  It’s ok to be impressed…trust me!  This is proof that this crib is very easy to set up.  Believe me if I can do it, I think pretty much anyone can figure this out. 

Travel crib set upPutting it away was simple too.  There are picture directions for that as well on the bottom of the crib. Packing it up takes a little longer than the set up, but not much. And once again even I did that all by myself 🙂 

I also was very impressed with the crib sheet from BABYBJORN as well.  It is extremely soft organic cotton and fits the mattress perfectly.  No loose fabric, but not so tight that it is difficult to put on.  The sheet is so soft, I wish they made one big enough for my own bed.

Travel crib top viewThis travel crib is smaller than my old one, but it definitely has plenty of room for it’s intended purpose.  I was not only impressed with it’s ease of use, but it was sturdy as well.  With such a simple set up I wondered if it would be stable, but the mattress in the base keeps it firmly on the ground even with my little girl in it.  She would NOT stay still and kept moving around as soon as I put her in it so I couldn’t get any pictures of her using the crib that weren’t blurry.  But I guess even that is good news because it means that it is able to handle a sleeping baby and one that was definitely wide awake and mobile.

I’ve used many BABYBJORN products and have continued to be impressed with their quality and ease of use.  I appreciate a company that realizes parents and caregivers are busy enough and need the things they use to care for their children to be uncomplicated.  They also need those things to keep their children safe and be built to last.  BABYBJORN consistently lives up to those standards.
