Top 9 Toddler Travel Beds
Peapod Travel Bed
This innovative sleep solution by KidCo is suitable for children aged one to three, giving toddlers a head start on the glamping trend and large enough (18 x 28 x 46 inches) to keep them rested well into the big-kid years. Essentially a pop-up tent with an inflatable mattress, the PeaPod comes equipped with its own nylon carrying case, is compact enough for travel and can be used indoors as a crib replacement in a hotel room or an Airbnb. And, because it zips fully closed (see you later, bugs!), it’s ideal for outdoor use, too—take it camping or bring it to the park for a picnic and a nap.
This option is best for toddlers aged two and up. The ride-on suitcase allows bigger kids to barrel through the airport long enough to tucker themselves out for the ride. Once onboard the plane, unpack said ride-on, equipped with a mattress and protective side cushions, and attach it to the seat and it becomes a bed. Once they’re fast asleep, grab the flight attendant for a drink and relax—it’s going to be a long flight after all.

The Shrunks Indoor Tuckaire Toddler Travel Bed
Boasting a 30-second set-up (pump included), this clever design mimics the construction of a full toddler bed, allowing for the mattress and guard rails to separate and making the whole travel bed cleanable. Though the bed is easy to pack (three kilograms and 7 x 7 x 16 inches when deflated), once inflated, standard-sized sheets tuck right into the inner air mattress for your little one to stretch out and sleep comfortably.
Milliard Portable Toddler Bumper Bed
Plush and cozy and raised on all sides, this foam travel bed measures 7 x 26 x 55 inches when open and folds up into a convenient suitcase that measures 14.5 x 25 x 27 inches when closed and even has room to stuff in your child’s favorite pillow and blankie.
Bumpzzz Travel Bed
BumpZZZ Travel Bed by Leachco is a lightweight (2.7 kilograms) and portable bed in a bag suitable for kids aged two and up. By day, fold over the cushions and use it as a toddler lounge chair so that your little one can do their doll’s hair while you blow-dry yours. By night, lay it flat and extend. At 7 x 39 x 58 inches, there’s plenty of room to tuck in a dolly, too.
Joovy Foocot Child Cot
Joovy’s foldable kids’ cot, made of a stretchy nylon and steel bar construction and available in an array of bright colors, is the most transportable sleep option of them all. Though the cot is a comfortable size (at 9.5 x 25 x 48 inches) for a luxurious sleep, it folds up easily and fits into most suitcases. That said, with its simple set-up and lightweight (three kilograms), your child can probably carry it and put it together all by themselves.
Regalo My Cot Portable Travel Bed
This bed is made of steel and plastic, with a reinforced canvas bed liner included, and a washable sheet, to clean up any unfortunate messes. Simply fold and go when you’ve finished using it, and snap it back down into place for a good night’s sleep. This is one of the best toddler travel bed.
Aerobed Mattress for Kids
Priced between $50-$100, this is a good investment and one which is long-lasting. The bed itself is made of heavy-duty PVC, with electronically welded seams, so you can be sure that this bed is going to last you for as long as you need it. If you’re worried about the inflation side of things, the included pump inflates the bed in under one minute, very easily, and it deflates within 15 seconds. There is a thick, fitted mattress pad included, with a washable cover, prettily decorated with moons and stars, for something a little special.
Intex Kidz Travel Bed
This is a cheap and cheerful option. It is one which will last and is safe for your child, aged 2 years and upwards. The high sides mean your child will be unable to roll out, and you can use your existing standard crib sheets, so you don’t need to splash out on anything different. This is a great choice of a blow-up mattress. The included air pump inflates and deflates the mattress quickly and easily, folding up to a very compact size. It is easy to travel with wherever you are going – it will easily fit into hand luggage on a plane or into the trunk of a car. Comfort is optimum with this choice, and although the price is low, it ticks all the boxes you need it to.
