KidCo Tent

I can't believe that I haven't put this up here before now, but I was talking to a couple at the REI Attic Sale and wanted to make sure it's up here.

The KidCo PeaPod Plus has been the greatest thing we have bought for G yet. We use it all the time--camping (in our tent with us--I don't have to think about her rolling anywhere, etc.), going to the beach, at the pool, hanging out outside while I refinish furniture. And G loves it too! We even took it with us on our Minnesota trip, and she could sleep anywhere. The plus is a little bigger than the other PeaPods (we thought she could use it longer that way).

It is the coolest thing though--no annoying rods to feed through nylon sleeves, etc. It just springs open on it's own. It weighs about 5lbs and twists up flat, so we could put it in our suitcase. We use it without the mattress too, just putting down the sleeping bag. The link above was the best price I found for the Plus.

Specs:
  • Virtually indestructible frame folds for storage
  • Mattress easily inflates with included hand pump
  • Bottom pocket hides mattress away from baby and prevents mattress shifting
  • 50% UV protection
  • 4 mesh panels
  • 4 adjustable wind screens
  • Open Dimensions: 52.5" x 34" x 25" High
  • Storage Bag Dimensions: 19"L x 6.5"W x 19" High
  • For use from birth and up
And at $73 it still beats the price of a bulky (ugly) Pac N' Play.
