KinderKot

.
The KinderKot is so practical for travel.
Daughter Naomi bought it in Australia last week and here it is, in the Jerusalem Hills today!
And sleeping peacefully inside it, our little bundle of joy, Libby.
.
The KinderKot is like a pop-up tent for little ones, complete with self-inflating mattress.
It folds down and slips into a carrying case about the size of a steering wheel. Very light.
.
The windows can be either clear or curtained or with a bug screen.
The KinderKot website says this is one of Dutch designer Roy van Aalst's revolutionary designs.

That is so cool! Great design, so much more convenient than trying to borrow (or needing to schlep) a pack'n'play everywhere you go. I wish they'd had them when my kids were little.

Libby looks so snuggly and peaceful in there, what a darling.

I've always said that camping is something you have to start early to really enjoy it!

Oh, how cool! I've never seen one of those mini tents before your photo! Our baby is 4 years old now; she turns 5 in late September! U R enjoying some wonderful times together!

What a nice thing that cot! And little Libby looks so cute there!

gigihawaii said...

AMAZING!!! It actually folds up into the size of a steering wheel?!

This is too too wonderful. Tif brought a slightly smaller than twin size inflatable mattress for 3year old KC when they came to Hawaii. This tent with the bug screen is really great for babies! Libby is so adorable. You just want to reach in and pick her up and snuggle.

This is absolutely a great idea. I have seen real tents like this one, only bigger. I like the natural pose of your Libby!

Looks like it's perfect for everything from camping to being stuck in airports.

Ann said...

Isn't that great.

Hilda said...

Now that's something my sister in Tokyo would appreciate.

I hope you are loving your daughter and granddaughter's visit, Dina! And don't you worry about virtual visiting — family takes precedence any time, I say. :)

Glad to hear you finally had some rain, even if it was just for a minute. Hope more come soon.

How practical for the sleeping little angel...

jeannette said...

Yeah, one of my daughters has one - very practical -only I didn't know that the designer of it was Datch:)

Gunn said...

What a relaxed beauty Libby is!!:)
And as many CDP friends have said, the design of the mini-tent is very smart, but I have not seen it here either.

Those things are great :) I would have loved one as a kid, it would have been like my own castle or ship or whatever I would have been playing at that time :)

The name is just a bit unfortunate for someone with German as a first language, I laughed so hard when I saw them the first time (online, I don't think they are sold here)

You've just given me a brilliant idea for a gift for my niece who gave birth to her first daughter just hours ago! Thanks, Dina!

I hope Miss Libby is enjoying her first Rosh Hashanah in the homeland! I tried to represent the holy day on my blog. Greensboro owes so much to its Jewish community!

Finally caught up on your blog. Some fabulous Skywatch photos and loved learning about the two meanings of Sabra. In Morgantown, WV there is a Sabra United Methodist Church and, down the road, a Sabraton.
