I received the Kidco DreamPod Portable Bassinet to review for our Baby Shower Gift Guide. I have to say that I was interested to see how long it took to put it together and my big question was will it really fit back in that travel bag as well as be safe for little princesses or princes. Having 4 children of my own and 4 grandchildren, safety is a big deal to me.
When I opened the box, I just loved the gray color of the bassinet, I really also liked that the sides you can see through and view the little angel inside. Now, if you have had a older style bassinet like I have you know that you had to peek over the top to see the little angel inside. You don’t have to worry about waking up the little angel you can view from the sides and make sure they are okay or if they are waking up. I can tell you from experience that I have accidentally woke my little ones up trying to check on them in the middle of the night, you wouldn’t have to worry about that with being able to view through the sides.
I was also impressed with how easy the Kidco DreamPod Portable Bassinet was to
put together. It literally only took me about 10-15 minutes to put the Bassinet together. It was very sturdy, easy to put all the pieces in place, and I loved that everything went together without having to fight with it at all. You know what I mean, there are times where the travel products give you some problems with different pieces going together. I didn’t need any help from anyone to put it together as well, I could do it all by myself and it took a very short time. I always look at these facts when I am testing a product so I can let you know if you need a second person to put them together. However, the ease of putting the Kidco Dreampod Portable Bassinet was amazing! I really fell in love with the Bassinet for so many reasons.
Now, I know what your next question is… Does it fit back into the travel bag when your ready for it to be on the go. Now, if you have been following our blog, you will know that I have a pet peeve with things that do not fit into the travel bags the way they are suppose to. However, my pet peeve did not appear when it was time to put the Kidco Dreampod Portable Bassinet, I was able to get it into the travel bag and without the bars or other pieces taking a distorted form in the bag. It looked just like it does above. So it was an epic win!!! It’s just a huge deal to me that the travel bags actually work and aren’t bulky when you travel as well.
The Kidco Dreampod Portable Bassinet will be a great Baby Shower gift or perfect for any new parent. They will love that they can have their little angel close by, see how they are doing through the open sides, and being able to take their bassinet anywhere they go. It’s going to be a great way for Grandparents to see their little angels and be able to watch them sleep peacefully in their bassinet. Not to mention my children were very picky about sleeping in their own beds when they were babies so they can now do that anywhere that you go and they can still be right next to you. It really is the best of all worlds with the Kidco Dreampod Portable Bassinet.
