Best Kid’s Travel Tent: KidCo PeaPod

***UPDATE: You can find the newest model of the Kidco PeaPod tents here: click here.

***VIDEO NOTE:  On the older model, the mattress must be inserted into bottom zip compartment, not on tent floor!!!

Every once in a blue moon I see a product that makes me stop in my track and ask, “where did you get that?”

I was helping my friends Matthew & Jessica move out of their apartment, and I saw their PeaPod travel tent pitched in their son’s bedroom. Of course, I asked, “what is that, and where did you get that?”  They showed me how the tent stores in a small pouch and how it automatically pops up. “That would be absolutely perfect for traveling with kids”, I said.

I thought I had made a unique discovery, but I soon discovered that the PeaPod had been featured on Martha Stewart, TLC, CBS News, The View, etc.

That very day I contacted KidCo and they were kind enough to offer me a PeaPod model of my choice…well, my three-year-old son Joseph helped me choose. He wanted a PeaPod tent that looked like my yellow mountaineering tent. Together we decided to get the “PeaPod Plus – P203 model.”


The PeaPod arrived very quickly, much to the relief of Joseph. Not only did the PeaPod become his playhouse, but he wouldn’t sleep in anything else but “his tent” for about 2 weeks. That may sound like a problem, but it was fantastically convenient when we had to stay in a couple hotels, and later when we had to pack up our house to move.

His PeaPod tent really helped him to adjust to his new bedroom.

I hope you enjoy this “discovery” that I’ve recently made. It’ll make life easier for you as a parent, and it will thrill your kiddos! Again, you can find the best prices at Amazon by clicking these photos:

    Josh, I just love this idea. I am heading to Rock Hill, SC this weekend to stay with the grandkids while their parents go house hunting. This would have been great to have with the almost 3 year old to sleep in at the hotel. It would even be good for the rolly polly almost 6 month old!!!! Great idea!!

    Perfect giveaway for this time of year, Josh. My thoughts are turning to camping already.

    I love watching Bert doing the Pigeon. My grandson is a huge Sesame Street fan and we like to watch utube videos of SS

    Please keep this important safety tip in mind…the inflatable mattress goes into the zipper pocket underneath the floor of the PeaPod, not inside. This keeps the mattress away from infants and toddlers and avoids shifting.

    This looks like a great product! I love that it can be used for a baby (I have one on the way) and a toddler/preschool which i also already have. It would be a great edition to our supplies. Thanks for the chance to win.
