This is the third little cot I have purchased to use for my 4 toddler grandchildren. They are light, compact, easy to fold up and stash in a closet or corner, and easy enough for the kids to set them up, and out them away themselves. The kids love them, but we do put a folded quilt on them to make it a bit softer to sleep on. They are great for naps, overnight, and when folded, not much bigger that a folded umbrella stroller, making them great to take along on trips and long day outings. Just teach your kids to follow the rules and not jump on them, we did lose one of the two cots I got about 2 years ago, to my active grandsons using it for a trampoline, we still could use it, but it was nearly on the floor, then it was finished off when an adult tripped and landed on it. Which is why I purchased my newest one, which came with a great little fitted sleeping bag. Great price as well.
