I bought this travel cot for my 5 month grandson coming to stay and found it easy to assemble [any probs initially were because we wern't following the instructions properly-once we realised what we were doing wrong it both assembled and packed away perfectly] My Grandson slept well over his few days stay and it is neatly packed away for his next visit. I have found this to be equally as good as more expensive travel cots my older grandchildren have used when they were babies. Excellent choice!!

We had our baby grand daughter to stay overnight and her other grandparents lent us their Red Kite travel cot. We were so impressed we have now bought our own. Assembly of the product couldn't be easier and the same can be said for folding it up again. It is one of the few products I've bought that can be guaranteed to fit back into the original box thanks to the clever design of the mattress. The baby slept like a charm which was a sure sign that the product was comfortable. Thanks Asda.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Incubator Best baby buy so far!
I was dubious to say the least, a decent travel cot for £25?! I checked out the other reviews, I've become a review addict! And was impressed by the 'silver award' and thought £25, why not? And was not disappointed! The travel cot packs away neatly, in it's own bag, with shoulder strap and carry handle. It took five minutes to put up, and was really sturdy! More so than some of the other, more expensive ones I have seen! I have raved to EVERYONE about what good value this travel cot is!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by daisycy Excellent product: excellent service
I had read a lot of reviews of this cot and so felt very confident about its quality. It is very easy to assemble, very sturdy, attractive and easy to check on baby through the net sides. I firstly ordered it from another company and immediately cancelled when the total cost, including delivery, came to almost £53! I then found the same cot for the same price in Asda, with free delivery to my local store so the total price was as described at £25. Excellent, fast and efficient service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hamilton24 great value for money
We bought this travel cot as we were staying at a friends house, I didn't want to spend a lot on a travel cot which will not be used that often so when I saw this one advertised on the ASDA website I was delighted. We picked it up from instore and manahed to put it up with no problems at all. My son was happy to play in it for a while, which kept him out of trouble and then he slept soundly in it at our friends house. The mattress isn't great but is ideal for the odd overnight stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Grandmaofgirls Ideal travel cot, very reasonable value
Bought for visiting granddaughters (10 months and 3 months) and it worked like a dream. Very easy to put up and to dismantle. Much sturdier than you'd think considering how much cheaper it is than most travel cots. Yes, the mattress is thin, but that didn't seem to be a problem, we put a blanket inside. Just be aware it is a bit shorter than a conventional cot, so if you want to use an additional mattress as well you might have to hunt for one. But overall very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by depechegirl Exceeded Expectations
We needed a travel cot fairly quickly for our son's first overnight stay at his grandparent's house. We got it very quickly after ordering it and had a trial run at home the night before he was due to use it.
It was easy to set up and very sturdy. We had our son sleep in it and he had a very restful sleep.
The travel cot was easy to fold up again and transport.
The only thing I would say is that the material that makes up the mattress can be fairly noisy when baby slides arms or legs across it, but not enough for our baby to wake himself up.
I wish I had thought to look at this product first before doing so much research on more expensive models. Many others don't come with a mattress but this one has a mattess that is fit for purpose.
Excellent buy that exceeded our expectations, especially for the price.

I ordered this travel cot for my 1 year old son as we were finally going to take a break and needed it quickly to go away with, i was so happy it arrived the next day. I opened it and was very very pleased with it, couldn't pick a fault, it is very easy to put up and pack away, you can easily do it on your own and it comes in a lovely bag which makes it easy to carry and travel with and it isn't very heavy either. I would definately recommend. Great buy and great bargain!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Muttley81 Great cot shame about the mattress
We bought this travel cot for use visiting family over x-mas.We found the price much cheaper than anywhere else for this product. The cot is very easy and fast to both put up and pack away and is reasonably compact when packed. However the "mattress" that comes with it is basically useless! It is too thin, and rustles every time our baby moved and consequently woke him up! I don't know if all travel cot mattresses are like this? Other than the mattress I cannot fault it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ElliottPET Most Useful Purchase Ever
My baby boy has just started crawling so decided to invest in a travel cot to keep him safe whilst I was cooking. Well this is one of the best things I have ever bought. Not only does it keep him safe whilst I do my jobs but it is really comfortable for him to play and have his nap times. I like it that much I bought one for him to sleep in whilst he stays at my moms!
Highly recommended and great value for money - all moms out there you should invest in one of theses!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by mortor Good send!!
I bought this for my mum, as she is babysitting my little daughter while I am back at work. She says its a 'life saver' she can put my daughter in it and pop to the loo with peace of mind! she is completely safe, there's plenty of room for her to play and when she's all tired out she just falls asleep in it. It sturdy yet light enough to be moved around easily within a room and folds away easily too. My daughter is very happy with it but my mom thinks it's a god send!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CyberMelons Fantastico!!!!
I bought 2x cots for my 8 month old twins, and they both sleep very different; one likes to fidget alot and the other likes to bang his legs up & down. But they both slept really well in these during our holiday week. The cots are very easy to put up, (having to do this twice it comes handy!). The matress is thin, but they didn't seem to mind. I also purchased travel cot fitted sheets from Toys R us for added comfort. Fantasitc value for money, can't praise enough!!!

I bought one of these travel cots for my granddaughter who is now 6. I gave it to my sister for her grandchildren. My daughter had another baby recently so I needed to buy another travel cot. I particularly wanted the same one as I had before. Firstly it's good value for the money. I reviewed other cots that were costlier but I felt I had no problems with the first one so I opted for the Red Kite. It's easy to manage and not that heavy. Overall I think it's a good buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mmmmmmmm easy to store
I bought this travel cot because it only weighs 8.7kg, a lot of travel cots are 11kg or more. It was a little hard for me to push down the centre piece to lock the legs in place, when I first bought it, but after using it 3 times it is easier. I have folded a single duvet into 4 to place under the mattress so I dont have to reach to fardown to pick up my grandson (I am only 5ft). I have also placed a summer duvet folded into 4 on top of the mattress for his comfort.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KPWales A good value, good quality travel cot!
Good points: This cot is easy to erect and dismantle. It isn't as heavy or bulky as some of the travel cots on the market. It's available in 3 colours (black, blue and pink). It's great value and is good quality for the price.
Bad points: The cot is very low / close to the ground. This could cause problems lifting baby in and out of it for someone who has a bad back. The mattress is thinner than some of the other travel cots available (but is still comfortable).

I am a Childminder so I use 2 Travel Cots every day..... These are fantastic, easy to put up, nice and compact and fold away easily, comes with a bag tovkeep it in too. I have had the Winnie the Pooh cots before and didn't find them as good. The base on the Asda one is very good, nice and padded. Amazing value for money, anyone thinking of buying one for every now and then use should definatly do so....I am thinking of buying another 2 as they are so good.

Great item and great value for money.
The one thing I would mention which isn't highlighted in the instructions is that you need to ensure you don't press down the middle of the cot first, this needs to be left loose so you can pop the edges into place and likewise when you are bringing it down u need to lift the middle of the cot to be able to unclick the edges.
Once you have sussed that out, it really easy to put up and down. Would definately recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GraciousGrannie What a good choice!
Bought this travel cot for my grandson when he visits and what a good choice it was. Looked at quite a few on line and this one seemed to be the best value for money and it did not dissapoint. Good looking, sturdy, very easy to erect and just as easy to put away. I use an extra matress as the base provided seems a bit hard, but I think this is a general problem with travel cots. Full marks too for ease of ordering and speed of delivery to my store of choice.

I'd been looking at travel cots for ages to pick one for my daughter and this one is great for its value and also comes with a mattress which many travel cots do not have and you have to buy them seperately so i thought this was great especially for the price. As the cot would be in my room for a while as my daughter isn't that old, there wasn't too much room to put a normal cot but this is great as it fits perfectly. Would definately recommend this product

This travel cot is fantastic value for money theres not much difference at all between this one and the one i bought for my son a few years back and that was more than 3 times expensive. Its not garish to look at like some other travel cots, its easy to put up and down and folds away neatley in its bag for storage when not in use. The only downside i could see was that its got 4 feet and could have done with2 feet and 2 wheels to make it easier to move.

Rated 5 out of 5 by M101 Great value for money
I bought this cot during the baby event at £25 which is fantastic value and much cheaper than anything else I saw on the internet. The cot is great, sturdy and very simple to construct. You can put it together with a few minutes. The mattress that comes with it is a little hard for a long period away but you can easily find mattresses online to fit if you choose but would be fine for a night or two. My daughter had no trouble falling asleep in this cot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gemd86 Good quality for an excellent price
I bought this item based on other reviews and I'm not disappointed. It's excellent value for money, easy to assemble and disassemble, easy to transport and easy to put away.
The only little thing I would like to improve is the quality and thickness of the mattress. Although I'm aware that this is a problem with most travel cots, but it doesn't seem that comfy, and as a result, I put down a single duvet so it was a bit softer for my child to sleep on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Urbanbaker Super value travel cot
I actually bought two of these travels cots (one for granny's house!) as they are exceptional value for a really sturdy and attractive item. They are easy to put up and down and my daughter sleeps soundly in them. They really are great value as lesser items command over double the price. I can see why these travel cots won a silver mother and baby award. Just filled mine with 200 ball pit balls (from Asda) and my daughter loves to play in there too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MOTH52 Fantastic value and function!
Very pleased with my choice of this travel cot. Once I'd sussed out how to really lift up the central hub, the assembly was easy and the cot felt solid. I have bought a thicker, 10cm cot mattress, so it becomes more comfortable as a place for my grandson to sleep in. Otherwise, the original 2.5cm mattress is fine with toys on it as a play pen. We've moved the travel cot into different rooms of the house, depending on what was needed - very versatile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DomInternet Wow, Value for money!
We previously bought a travel cot from elsewhere to be kept at my mothers house for when we visit with the little one. We needed another for our upcoming holiday and I stubled across the Red Kite travel cot form Asda. This cot appears exactly the same as the one we already had (albeit in a different colour) but less than HALF the price!
The little one had no problems sleeping and the build quality is excellent.
For the price, you can't go wrong!

This travel cot is fantastic value for money without compromising on quality. It is so easy and quick to put up and fold away, literally seconds!
As we intend to use it for longer than an overnight stay we have purchased a thicker mattress (around £20) for it as the one supplied is thin (which it needs to be in order to fold round the cot when transporting it) so in my opinion you would need some extra padding for your little one to be comfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KKLB Good value for a limited budget
Overall this is a really handly travel cot, compacts well, easy assemble and disassemble.
My only critic of it is the mattress is very thin so i had to pad it with blankets and my daughters quilt, so if buy it for sleeping purpose then might be worth investing in a thicker mattresses.
As a playpen its handy but the mesh isn't very practical for vision, as babies eyesight isn't at our level I have found they struggle to actually see out unless you are at a closer range and even that is not too good. If they made the mesh clear then that would be more practical for this purpose.
Can't argue with value for money, would recommend this over others as its sturdy, stable, locks in position and with the extra padding baby goes to sleep well. Playpen side, it is handy if u need to quickly do something and you need somewhere to put them for safety.

this was brought for my son, from his grandparents ( for when we both stay over) My mum was and i were amazed at the good quality from a brand we had not really heard off!
The price was also a main factor...i would have paid full price..beause we all love, and my son really like's it too.
It is well made and there are no worries about safety with this product! Mum and baby very happy! Colour is fab too, oh the mesh my son like to touch that :)

This is a fantastic travel cot. Spacious when opened out and compact and light weight when folded.
Our 5 month old is an excellent sleeper and this has continued when using this travel cot. If he likes it then we are happy.
The £25 price tag is an absolute bargain - especially when compared with some other highstreet retailers. Where the price can be as much as double for the same cot!
If you are looking for a travel cot then look no further

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hertschick Really Good Travel Cot
After doing quite a bit of research bought this travel cot. Really impressed with it - incredibly easy to put up and down and get into the storage bag. The cot is nice and roomy as well so loads of room for babies to spread out and move. The mattress is not the softest so I also used another duvet to pad it out before. My baby had really good sleeps whilst we were away and had no problems in keeping to his usual nap times in the travel cot.
