We purchased two of these for our boys ( 21 mos. & 3 years) to use on a 3-week trip visiting various family members. We were looking for something that our youngest wouldn't fall out of becuase he was used to his crib, but he's too big for the pack and play. Both our boys LOVE Pixar Cars and these beds were a huge hit with both of them. PROS:
They have something of their own that makes them feel safe and secure and it's something that is really fun to sleep in. Doubles as a play space to give them something to do.
Toddlers won't fall out of this becuase the sides are over a foot deep.
It's pretty big! Bigger than a crib mattress, a touch smaller than a twin mattress. CONS:
The MANUAL pump that comes with this is a piece of JUNK!!! BUY YOUR OWN ELECTRIC PUMP and use it, or plan on taking well over two hours to pump this up manually and being exhaused when you're done (We know from experience).
Bring along something extra to put down under their bedding that adds some barrier between their bedding and the plastic rubber bed. We put down a thick blanket and added their soft flat sheets over that and tucked it into the sides (fitted sheets will not work with this bed). Then topped with another flat sheet and a blanket.
You'll need some space to set these up as they take up quite a bit of room. Overall, for the price, they worked out wonderfully for us and we will be using them again soon. They slept on them every night for three weeks and we had no problems deflating or holes (but we did deflate and re-inflate several times while traveling). My boys love these beds and if you're looking for portable fun and a sleeping arrangement that's keeps kids from falling out of bed, this should fit the bill.
