This crib is best for…

Families who want a simple but compact and durable travel crib that will allow them to travel anywhere easily with their baby or young toddler for a reasonable price. This travel crib is similar to the BABYBJORN Travel Crib without the high price tag.  It comes with a fitted carry bag, mattress, instructions and an insect mesh.

Ease of use: 4/5

The Valco Baby Zephyr is one of the easiest cribs to assemble and collapse. Within moments, the crib is set up and ready for use.  The instructions on the manual are clear, simple and straightforward. There are no added tools or batteries required for the crib to operate. Once the crib is upright, all you have to do is add the mattress. Because of its small dimensions, it is ideal for use in rooms that may not have a lot of space.

The fabric of the mesh can be easily removed, and cleaned. The same goes for the mattress cover.  They need to be handwashed.  The mattress is not waterproof.

Portability: 3/5

Our Valco Zephyr review found a compact and easy to carry around crib when folded.  It is one of the heavier travel cribs at 13.8lbs and it folds down to 23 x 20 x 3″.  It come with its own bag, making it easy to carry around the home or the world. It can easily fit into any suitcase or travel bag.

Comfort: 5/5

It comes inclusive with a padded mattress that is soft and easy to fold when putting away the crib. You do not have to worry about traveling to a place with a lot of mosquitoes as this crib comes with its own net included. The Valco Baby Zephyr also comes with an exterior that allows for extra airflow. This ensures that whilst inside the crib, your baby will have access to cool and fresh air and will not feel stuffy and uncomfortable.

Age range: 3/5

The Valco Baby Zephyr has no weight restrictions but it will only fit children until they are about 36″ long.  For this reason, this crib is suitable from birth until the child is about 2 years of age.

Safety: 5/5
