Best Travel Product (For Children) | Junior Design Awards 2019

WINNER: GOLD BEST TRAVEL PRODUCT FOR CHILDREN

WHO: Micralite Sleep & Go Travel Cot

Advertisement

WHAT: A travel cot designed to help baby sleep just as soundly, home or away. The bassinet attachment allows your newborn to sleep close by and there’s a deeply padded mattress so you don’t have to compromise on comfort. The travel cot can also be converted into a play pen for use in the daytime too! When you need to transport it, it packs down in seconds into the stylish and comfortable carry bag.

WHY: Our judges loved the sleek minimal design and simple black colour of this stylish travel cot that easily transforms from newborn crib to infant cot bed to play pen, covering all your travel needs as your family grows. The quick fold action was much admired as was the smart compact travel bag with handles. The biggest attraction was the raised crib that means no straining your back to soothe little ones to sleep when they really are little. Our judges wrote in their notes:

Great that this can be used from birth up to toddler stage, and that it is easy to put up and down - often a challenge with some travel cots.
Caroline Rowland, founder of interiors magazine 91
A lifesaver (and cost saver) when the children were young!
Gabrielle Spang, founder of concept store Scandimini
The newborn layer is great and the mattress is soft…
Gemma Breger and Samantha Silver, founders of This is Mothership

With one year of Fire for Kids Unlimited, children have access to thousands of age appropriate apps, games, videos, books and educational content.

WHY: So many of our judges eyed this gadget longingly, recognising it as the saving grace of many a journey! With a huge variety of kid’s entertainment, ranging from fun to educational and with full parental control, children can keep themselves occupied when they might otherwise be climbing the rigging or the luggage reclaim carousel.
