KidCo has come up with a swell way to make sure your kids get their Zs when you tote them along to grandma's for Christmas, the beach for Christmas vacation, or your friend Cornelius' house party for New Year's Eve. Their Peapod travel beds twist, condense, and stuff into a carry sack no wider than a steering wheel that will add just 2-1/2 pounds to your luggage weight (be it gifts, lounge chairs, or 6-packs).
The tent-style beds have a lightweight mesh dome over them for coziness (i.e., child containment) that doesn't inhibit airflow, and a large front zipper panel for easy access. Peapod floors are fitted with a Micro-Lite sleeping pad that secures with snaps. If you plan to snooze your kid outdoors, the bed's cover provides UV protection and its anchor straps security against wind and sneaky surfs.
