Hands up if you are one of the lucky ones to own a Valco Zephyr travel cot! If you don’t, chances are you can’t put your hand up anyway, since you need both of them to lug around the incredibly heavy, ever so un-portable travel cot you do own. Come on through and find out how to make your unwieldy portacot a distant memory.
I know people (and I’m sure you do too) who decline invitations to friends and family at night time because the effort involved in setting up and dismantling their travel cots is so horrendous. But these problems are all in the past with the Zephyr travel cot from Valco Baby. The video below shows just how simple it is to assemble and dismantle the Zephyr – easier than collapsing some prams.
Weight and portability is just one of the reasons why the Valco Zephyr is so good. Coming in at just seven kilograms, it weighs about as much as a baby, and unlike a baby, it comes with a convenient handle. When packed away in its carrybag, the Valco Zephyr is less than sixty centimetres long, so it’s easy to carry around and won’t take up much space when you’re travelling.
You can use the Zephyr from birth. It comes in two colours – black and grey/red – and the set includes both a mosquito net that fits snugly over the cot and a fitted mattress. The mesh sides mean the Zephyr has better airflow than many other portacots on the market, which translates to greater comfort and safety for your child.
You can pick up the Zephyr for $148 from Big W, either instore or online.
