1.0 out of 5 stars Some problems, March 24, 2012
This review is from: Gocrib Portable Baby Travel Crib and Play Yard (Baby Product)
There are 2 BIG problems that I had with the go crib:
1) when this thing is inflated, it has a HUGE footprint. The legs and top are all inflated big tubes, and they are angled out, so they take up at least double the space that a traditional packnplay would need. We were in a hotel room that just literally didn't have the floor space that the go crib needed. Thinking back, almost any hotel room (or especially camping!) that we've done would not have been able to fit this crib. So unless you are in some swanky double room suite, I honestly don't know how anyone else has made it fit.
2) some people have suggested to rest it on a blanket or comforter for extra padding so it's off the floor (bc the bottom literally rests on the floor), however you HAVE to make sure that the entire thing including the legs are all on the same surface. The mesh side length is designed to be the same length as the legs and reach the floor, so if you have the bed part up higher than the legs, you are creating excess mesh sides are not taut anymore. Our baby girl ended up rolling into that hanging over excess, so she was off the mattress with her face in the side of it inside the mesh side. Really dangerous

Also, our gauge didn't measure the input ( not a huge deal but annoying when you just spent 250), and more importantly our mattress did not self inflate and you cannot manually inflate it. Which is why we tried resting it on a blanket underneath.

It definitely fits as a carry on (great to avoid paying a checked baggage fee), and it is lightweight. I would not say that the set up is super easy and it does take some time, but it's not the worst. With the safety issues and the size, I wouldn't recommend it to any of my friends.

The video on Guava Family's web site actually shows that you inflate the mattress with your mouth after it has self-inflated as much as it can. Just like you do with the same style mattresses made for camping.

With the mattress properly inflated, you wouldn't need to put blankets creating the safety issue you mentioned.

Further to my first comment, I received my GoCrib today and the manual specifically states that you will need to blow the mattress manually by mouth for at least the first few times you use it. I didn't have any trouble blowing into the valve and closing it while blowing.

The valve is a little interesting...you just twist it and it's open then twist it and it's closed. It doesn't look like a traditional pool toy valve, it's much sturdier than that. Just by glancing a person might not realize this is the blow-up valve. It works well, though! If you have any issues contact the company right away, they're very helpful. We had an issue with our pump and they immediately sent us a new one for free.

We booked a standard one bed hotel room in America and the Go Crib fit just fine. However, when we traveled to Asia I knew rooms there tend to be very small so I made sure to look and find ones with good floor space. Wasn't even a concern here in the US, though.
