2 winners! One Step Ahead Extra-Long Travel Cot with #Giveaway

 Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own. NOTE: The sponsor has upped the ante and is now giving away a cot to TWO lucky winners!

What's in there, Grandma? That's what she was asking me. :)

This little gray carrying case garnered some attention when I brought it into the house.  Looks like a chair, right? It's not a chair, but it does have a handy nylon case, just like those chairs sometimes do.

She was still perplexed when the easy-fold and unfold item was unveiled. ;)

Still looks like a chair, I know, and it's the same size as the handy fold-up chairs, but instead it's the Extra-Long My Cot Travel Bed from One Step Ahead. With the holidays fast approaching, this little beauty could really come in handy...whether it's you having guests, or your child who is going to be the guest. It's also good for stayovers at grandmama's house. ;)

When she saw it was the Extra-Long My Cot Travel Bed from
One Step Ahead, she was delighted. 

The sturdy steel construction ensures it's going to hold up, and it has a weight limit of up to 75 lbs.

See, that's a happy face right there...

Evidently it's fun too. See that face? ;) Because this cot is 6" longer than standard-sized cots, its going to grow with your kiddos for quite some time to come. Measuring in at 54"L x 28"W x 11"H, it's also low enough to the floor that you're not going to worry about the little ones falling off.

And that's how a 2-yr.-old folds a sheet (included with the cot). ;)

It comes with a fitted sheet too. You can see it in the picture above. That's how a two-year old puts on a sheet (love that baby girl). :)  It's a snap to put on though, and makes it even nicer for when you're using it for sleep.

Baby Grand likes to sit on it 'just because' too. I don't blame her a bit. 
Enter to win one of your own below! You're welcome. :)

It's great for just sitting, and of course for sleeping too. It'd also be great for daycare naps (keep those kiddos off of those busy floors), the beach, or most anywhere you need extra seating for a child.

This cot runs $59.95 over at One Step Ahead. If you haven't been to One Step Ahead, I highly recommend it, especially with the holidays coming up. They have everything you can think of for a child, and many things that you wouldn't (but you'll love once you see). Their innovativeness on some of their items really makes for great gift giving options.

You can visit their website here. Follow them on Facebook and/or Twitter.

Two lucky readers gets one to call their own. US entrants only.

OMG I need one of these. No I need a few of these. Having been in the military I know that these are more comfortable than they appear.

i really like their Kitchen Helper so kids can help mommy and daddy do the dishes.

Jeannette said...

My kiddo would love to use this! He loves anything out of the normal so this would be right up his alley. Trying to get him into his regular bed could be a problem after this.

Liz Mays said...

Oh wow, you really could bring this anywhere. I can definitely see this being great for camping, tailgating and traveling.

Pat Hatt said...

Ease of use is a good thing indeed. She looks to be enjoying it and having fun.

Karen said...

Rosie, I love this!!!! We used an air mattress when our daughter was little, but it didn't make her happy to be so close to the ground. This would be much better.... Heck, if I had one, I might even be willing to **gasp** camp!

Rebecca Bryant said...

what a perfect cot for traveling and camping. It looks comfortable.

Masshole Mommy said...

We always have people staying here, so that would be great for my boys and then the grown ups can take their beds.

I don't have kids yet, but this is something I could look into for my niece and nephew. Sounds like something every parent should have for holiday travel!

Orihimekurosaki said...

That cot is an excellent idea. It is so small and easy to carry it is a great idea for visiting family. It makes it possible to stay with friends and family who don't have all that room. What a great idea.

Hi Rosey - what a fun and sensible addition. I remember as a kid using my parent's army sleeping - camp bed - loved using it and sleeping outside usually in the tent.
