Graco compact travel cot offers an easy assembly travel cot, with a push-button fold and includes a carry bag for portability. Originally offering one of the world’s first children’s swings, Graco is a company that offers a variety of practical children’s products such as strollers, high chairs, swings, carriers, car seats and play yards/bassinets.

This particular model is a must-have for an overnight stay away from home, whether it be with family, camping or for going on holiday, it makes traveling with your little one non-fuss.

Weighing in at a lightweight 8.95kg, the Graco compact travel cot is highly portable and light to carry. The travel bag that comes with most travel cots can be a little difficult to use but this one is nice and easy to get the main cot into and easy to carry. 


Available in either grey or black, it provides a neutral unisex cot that you can purchase ahead of birth if you didn’t wish to know your baby’s gender prior to birth. What makes this useful is just how easy to assemble it is.

Simply lock the end rails by pulling both sides up at once, push the center down and install the mattress. For dismantling, remove the mattress and pull the center up, pull up the end rails and push the buttons, two opposite sides at a time, lower each rail, and pull the centre up for folding away.

Its four mesh walls, meaning you can see baby from every angle was a big bonus for us. We had the worry without first of anyways wanting to check on her every 5 minutes but with this travel cot we were able to see her through it wherever she was as long as we had a clear line of site. 

Compared to other makes, this is a very cheap, yet well-recommended design coming in at 4.8 of 5 stars online.

Why Should You Buy?


Highly commended

Easily assembly


Light for portability


Unisex colours


Soft mesh design

reasons we love

What can’t we say about how great this product is? Its cheap, light, unisex, and comes with a soft mesh design so you can be assured your little one will have a comfortable sleep no matter where you take them.

This makes a great product for grandparents, and other family members where the child does not normally stay with you in how easy it is to store away, or for family holidays.

Reasons we dont like

There really isn’t anything negative to say about the Graco compact travel cot, it is a great all-round product.

Some other parents have reported that the base that it comes with is not soft enough for a baby to sleep on, but for the price and the product it offers, it’s worth every penny.

Cot mattresses as well come very cheaply, which if you factor in the price of this Graco model, it would actually be beneficial to purchase a cot mattress separately.

About Graco

Aside from its travel cots, Graco has also been very innovative in creating some of the world’s first baby and toddler products. It introduced the travel system to the market, the first time you could attach a car seat to a stroller.

The blossom 4 in 1 highchair was the first high chair with growing stages in mind to last your child from infancy to big kid, as well as the ‘Pack’N’Play’ play yard so you can leave your infant to play in comfort, safe in the knowledge you can go about your day.

Designed by other parents, Graco considers all of your child’s needs, so you don’t have to.
