I must admit that I have tried various toddler travel beds before, and I think they are ok for a good sleepover with the kids at home. But me and my husband gto frustrated when we do our travels with the kids. Those past travel beds take up too much time to set up and we spent about almost twenty minutes just to pump them up manually. Eventually, we did not bring them with us anymore and now they are just in the storage eating dusts.
Since we constantly travel, we came across The Shrunk Tuckaire Toddler bed, which comes with a portable air electric pump that inflates the bed fast and even deflates it as well.
It only takes 3 minutes to pump the bed fully making it really convenient for us. There are 2 parts of the bed, the central area where the kids sleep. The central part is covered with thick, soft fabric that makes it comfortably warm to sleep at night. While the outer part is the one that provides the railing that keeps your child securely tucked inside the bed and prevent him/her to fall off the bed. Both parts need to be inflated separately.
The bed surface is ideal for kids 2-6 yrs old and gives a great bed size for toddlers. When you are storing it, you can tuck the deflated bed into the drawstring bag that is provided for easy storage and you can easily place them in the trunk of the car.
Another cool feature I love about this bed is that it makes It possible to tuck the sheets around the bed to firmly secure your child at night.
So that’s just about my personal review of The Shrunk Tuckaire Toddler bed. Now below is a review of the shrunks toddler travel bed reviews.
