We sent our new Valco Baby Zephry Port-A-Crib to Alyson over at Pregnancy & Newborn and she loved it. Here's why:
"The Zephyr comes folded in a travel bag. I was surprised at how lightweight it was (less than 14 lbs) and how the compact fold made it easy to carry. There was no real assembly required other than placing the mattress inside the travel bed. Setting up the bed frame could not be simpler. We took it out of th etravel bag, unfolded the legs, checked them for stability and put in the mattress. Seriously. No straps, buckles, hook and loops, buttons or rain dances. We unfolded the bed. It's just as simple to close - remove the mattress, fold down the legs, fold the bed in half and place back in the bag. Notable features other than the super quick setup are the insect net and the side pockets. The Insect Net, which is included, has elasticized corners and fits securely over the top of the travel bed. It kept our daughter mosquito-bite-free during a park outing when we came home with more than a few bites ourselves... It also cleans very easily. The fabric is removable as is the mattress cover fabric. Both zip off... Bottom line: just go get it. When you're sitting back relaxing and your little one is napping in themosquito-free travel bed, you'll thnk of the old you - frustrated with unwieldy baby gear - and you won't regret a thing."
