phil & ted’s nest

Over the River and Through the Woods…..

2 dogs.
1 dog bed.
2 car seats.
2 parents.
1 guncle.
2 nuggets.
2 bouncers.
2 diaper bags.
Several presents.
1 suitcase.
1 bed.

ALL of these were crammed into the back of my sister's Murano as we made our way from Minneapolis to St Cloud for Christmas at the in-law's. I know you're shocked we all fit, but I forgot to mention something: the suitcase and the bed were the same item.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the phil & ted's nest.

I first saw this item in Vegas at the ABC Kids Expo and was floored. It looks like a simple suitcase for travel. However, when you unzip the bottom, something resembling a sled slides out. Release a few snaps, pop in a few support pieces and BAM—you have a travel bed/Moses Basket/bassinet that can be used from birth until 9 months. The walls are nice and high and the top zips closed with an insect net which would come in handy for outdoor use in nicer weather (did I mention it is freezing in Minneapolis at Christmas?). A solid base along with handles also makes it quite easy to carry around with a sleeping nugget inside. Vivian, the “Nugget of Judgement” of the twins, actually fell to sleep immediately after being placed inside. She will not sleep in ANY other portable/collapsible bed system but she slept all night long in the nest, which is beyond lovely. As we all know, sleep, especially while dealing with (errrrr, TRAVELING WITH) family, is a lovely thing.

Pros:
EASY set-up and break-down
Terrific mattress inside the bed
TONS of room for baby clothes, diapers, booze (which is MUCH needed for most family trips)
super cute


Cons:

When the Sleeping Nugg rolled in their sleep, the nest came veeerrry close to tipping….

I love this product. The Nuggs loved this product. Sleep was achieved. Christmas was saved.

Did I mention it retails for $100? Yes, I am serious.

LOVE IT!!!

Cocktail of Choice: Fat Tire beer (when I have access to it, it's what I go for—just ask @SmonkYou)

What I Use It For: It makes a great hamper for smaller loads of laundry! Laundry in the basement? Carry it in a cute hamper that you can re-fold the laundry into!!!
