Simply Southern Couponers had the pleasure of working with KidCo to review their Pea Pod Plus. Kidco has been advertising, manufacturing and distributing upscale consumer goods for over 20 years. KidCo offers a wide-ranging variety of child home safety products which include bed rails, cabinet locks/latches, baby gates and much more. They also offer other products like the Food Mill and travel products such as the PeaPod.
The PeaPod Plus is a convenient pop-up travel bed for parents traveling with small children ages 1-5. The Pod has a lightweight mesh surround that provides continuous airflow. It also has a large front access panel making it easy to get to your child. Tightly secured to the bottom of the pod is the mattress pad. The mattress pad can easily be removed for cleaning and packing. The PeaPod Plus is not just for indoor use. It features adjustable sun screens, UV protection, anchor straps, and an inner mesh panel for keeping insects out which is perfect for outdoor use.
I absolutely love the PeaPod Plus and so does my two year old. It comes in a convenient storage bag which is perfect for traveling. You can either carry it or pack it into your suitcase. To use the PeaPod Plus simply remove it from the storage bag and slowly remove the safety strap. Use extra caution when opening the pod because it quickly pops open. We learned that lesson fast. And that’s it. Your PeaPod Plus is ready to use.
Once the pod was up my son darted straight in. I love that there are four panels to see in through. This way I can see my son no matter which way it’s facing. The zippers work from the inside and the outside. So, while your child is inside they can open and close the panel themselves when they are old enough. Nap time is tough in our house, but now that we have the PeaPod Plus my son wants to nap. (Only in the Pod) When you’re finished with the pod it easily folds back up and stores neatly in the storage bag. I had some difficultly with this step. My husband had to step in and show me the proper way to fold it back up. Once I got the hang of it closing for storage is a breeze.
I can’t wait for the winter season to pass, so we can take the PeaPod Plus to the park and beach. I definitely recommend the PeaPod Plus to all parents who have children 5 and younger.
The PeaPod Plus is available at Babies R Us, Buy Buy Baby, Baby Specialty and Internet retailers. The suggested retail price is $119.99, but many times the PeaPod Plus can be found for $99.99.
