Where are the Kids Sleeping for the Holiday Visits? Tuck-Me-In Travel Bed

Tuck-Me-In Travel Bed from One Step Ahead 

One Step Ahead has holiday convenience figured out and then some, when it comes to travel. Whether you have guests coming in, or you and your family are going out and about, One Step Ahead has a great number of items to help make the transitions easier, and the stays more comfortable and pleasant. From travel cots, to small pillow and blanket bundles, to this awesome travel bed…they really do know how to get the job done.

This is what's in the box!

The bed itself comes packed rather nicely in a drawstring nylon bag. That makes it easy for carrying and storage. Inside of the bag you will find the pieces shown above.  In addition to the bed itself, there is an air pump for inflating and deflating. This pump is electric so it makes short work of getting the bed up, or down and put away.  Easy instructions are included, and so are two repair patches (just in case).

It's easy to inflate and deflate. The pump is included and it's electric.

Some inflatable items are a pain to put up, but this one was very easy.  Simply plug in the pump, and choose whether or not you want to inflate or deflate. An easy left-right switch allows you to choose between the two. When you’re ready to begin filling you unplug the cap, insert the nozzle and turn the pump on.  We put the outer frame together first, but the order doesn’t matter.

There are 5" security walls on each side so you don't roll out.

The bed frame has bumpers on each side so your little one won’t roll off while he or she is sleeping.

You can get a kids' version or a toddler version.
The kids' version shown here is 67" x 40", and it supports up to 350 lbs.

Then we put together the mattress.  The blue top is a soft brushed material that makes it nice for sleeping/lounging, and it was plenty big enough for my 4 ft. son to stretch out on and be comfortable. In fact, he and I stretched out on it together just to see if we could, and it was no problem at all.ThisTuck-Me-In Travel Bed is 67" x 40". One Step Ahead also has a smaller size available for toddlers.

My son loves this bed, and it’s definitely convenient to have for a million and one reason. Before you set out on your travels this season, this is a great option to consider for purchase.

And of course, it's fun to have something new in the house too. :)
Be sure to visit the One Step Ahead website for great  gift ideas. They literally have the most amazing things, like this great Convertible Desk & Chairs, this multi-level table, and a cool jumping trampoline with a handle. They also have clothes, camping gear, toys, seats, and more. I love One Step Ahead for holiday shopping, and if you head on over to the site, I think you’ll love them too.

You can learn more about One Step Ahead and all of their useful, practical and very well-made items by visiting their website. You can also follow them on Facebook and/or Twitter.
