Daddy Troy reviews maybe the coolest travel crib ever. This piece of baby gear comes to us from Baby Bjorn, maker of some of the best baby products. This crib makes travel easier for parents and their infants.
Troy: Okay, I seldom use the word revolutionary when it talk about baby gear products, but this one today we're talking with Amy from Baby Bjorn about and a portable crib that they got. Let me tell you, it really is truly revolutionary. I know you’ve been there before, you travelled with your kids and you have a portable crib. Either you're borrowing one from the parents or bringing one along yourself. And you start to set it up and it weighs 110 pounds. And it starts to pinch you when you put it together. And 6 hours later you go in and have the, you get what I'm talking about? You’ve been there. Well, this is truly a really great product. Amy, won't you tell us about it. Amy: okay, this is the new Baby Bjorn Travel Crib Lite. It’s a brand new product from Baby Bjorn. It is designed for parents on the go who travel a lot with their children. It actually weighs less than 11 pounds in the case. So it’s very easy to carry and it also can be check like regular luggage. So it’s the size of a standard suitcase. It is designed so that it can save space in the room, whether that’s a bedroom or hotel room. The design of the legs designs so that it doesn’t take up much room. The mesh sides allow you when you're sleeping in a bed next to the baby to peek in on the baby at night without having to look in over the edge. All of the material that comes in contact with the baby is what we call urcatech certified, it’s a European textile standard that means that the material does not contain any chemicals that are harmful to babies. So the baby stands up and chews in the fabric, they're not going to ingest any harmful chemicals. So the mattress is water proof and it’s also made of a breathable fabric. So when the baby is sleeping, they don’t get all hot and sweaty. It allows some air circulation through the mattress. But it is waterproof. So in case there's and accident at night. It’s easily cleanable. Troy: So it's light. Great materials and easy to set up too, right? Let’s check it out now. Before we go on, watch this, one finger. Do that with your standard portable crib, one finger. Okay, let's check it out. Amy: Okay. All it takes is unzipping the sides. Pull out the blue crib. And pop it open. Make sure the legs are pulled out completely. And it is just that easy. And then the mattress just slips right inside like that. And you're done. Troy: Piece of cake. Amy: 10 seconds or less. Troy: You're done? Amy: You're done. 10 seconds or less, your baby is asleep. Troy: Incredible. And with things that are sometimes light, I have this weird assumption that they are not as sturdy. This one is really sturdy? Amy: This one is very sturdy. The way the legs are designed ensures that it stays stable on the floor. It was also put through a lot of testing to make sure that older siblings can't come up and knock it over when a younger child is in there. Troy: Oh, super. So probably the catch is it’s probably be impossible to take down, right? Amy: Absolutely not. That’s the second beautiful thing about this crib. First you remove the mattress and you want to put the mattress back in the bag for the stability of the bag. Troy: Okay, I’ll help you with that. Amy: You just flip this over. Apply a little pressure with one foot on the center and the legs just basically pop right in. apply a little pressure in the middle, fold it in half and its back in the bag. And you're ready to go again. There we go. Troy: Super. Super. Portable crib from Baby Bjorn. Amy, thanks so much, this s really, really cool product. I hope to travel with it soon. Thanks a lot. Amy: Thanks Troy.
