The beautiful and thoughtfully designed bag makes getting out and about with little ones easier than ever before! The Pod Bag’s clever functionality enables parents to carry less, whilst combining two essential products for families during travel and days out. Fitting conveniently under a pushchair or over a parent’s shoulder thanks to its removable carry strap, the lightweight sleep solution ensures time away from home is as stress free as possible.
In a few simple steps, the Pod Bag transforms from a useful changing bag (with all important compartments for extra storage and insulated bottle pocket), to a handy travel crib. Featuring breathable, mesh side panels for safety and peace of mind, the unique crib can be easily assembled into a secure, super cosy, structure in less than a minute. The lightweight poles provided maintain the shape to ensure a safe and comfortable nap time for baby.
Furthermore, the ingenious product transforms once again, as the padded mattress doubles up as a removable changing mat. Made from durable and easy to clean fabrics, the versatile product can be used for nappy changes even when little ones have outgrown the crib function.
The Bizzi Growin Pod Travel Bag is a travel cot in a bag and measures 50x37.6x12.8cm and looks like a large laptop bag. It comes in a colour called Melange Grey. The bag has a polyester/ cotton feel and is very lightweight. The bag has four zip compartments to hold clothes, nappies etc and also an insulated bottle section. There is room in the netted inserts for your purse, phone, keys etc. The main compartment zips open and inside is a lightly padded mattress 650x440mm (BS 1877) which doubles as a changing mat. To assemble there are two poles ( similar to tent poles ) which easily slip into the sides, secured by a popper for safety. This holds the mesh sides in place and the mattress fits in the bottom.
The bag is wipe clean only but the mattress can be washed at 40 degrees. The cot is suitable for a child up to 9kg or when the child can roll over. It is a perfect solution when a baby needs a nap when away from home. It is not recommended as a permanent sleeping cot and there is a notice on the cot saying not suitable for overnight use, but several reviews state it can be used overnight. Maybe for very young babies who do not move around this may be okay.
When we got the Growin Pod to review our little one was 6 weeks old. The bag is a very clever idea when travelling with a young baby. When baby is older the bag can be used as a changing bag. It is very versatile and stylish in appearance. Such a great invention - we have already used it lots when visiting family and friends, and will continue to do so until our little man is too big. We love it! Anything that makes life easier for Mum and Dad is a big plus now we have welcomed number 2 to the family.
