KidCo P4012 PeaPod Plus Review

The word ‘plus’ in the name of this product means it is bigger than normal as it is meant for slightly bigger babies. It will work well for you if you have a growing toddler. In the end, you will discover that it can be used even for five-year old children.

Here is our review of the KidCo P4012 PeaPod Plus


The KidCo P4012 PeaPod Plus is a lightweight baby crib that isn’t heavier than 3.5 pounds. That means you can easily carry it anywhere you are having your outdoor adventures. If you are having a sleepover at the hotel, you don’t have to worry about being provided with rollaway beds for your young ones.

This is basically the perfect solution for any parent looking for a travel crib. It enables you to avoid the oft-cumbersome ‘pack and play’, especially when you are going on long travel or trips to the beach. You should find it easy to carry with you even when using an airplane for your travel.


Not many ‘pack and play’ options are compact enough to fold flat and small enough to fit in a small space. This means you can easily keep it at the bottom of your suitcase and, if not, under a big pile in your car. If you fold it well-enough, it should collapse in a circle that’s less than one foot in diameter.

The good news is that you don’t have to get a separate bag to carry it in. KidCo P4012 PeaPod Plus comes with a special carry bag so you can carry it with you wherever you go without much of a hassle. Those moments you spend time thinking about where to pack your belongings are long gone.

Easy set-up and collapse

Who wants to waste time trying to set up a portable baby crib? If you live on the fast lane, you want something that not only helps you save time but also is hassle free. Since you won’t be in need of a bed for your baby, you will find it much easier when visiting family and friends.

KidCo P4012 PeaPod Plus only requires you to pull if from the bag for it to pop up. It is also easy to collapse into a manageable heap with a little practice. In fact, you don’t have to over-think it when you are folding it up.


Not many bassinets are big enough to accommodate more than two older children. That’s where KidCo P4012 PeaPod Plus beats them hands down as it can be useful if you have 2½-year-old twins. You will be amazed how much you are able to save on sleeping space if you regularly travel with your kids.

Since your children are growing and will be older and taller in a few years, you need a crib that you will rely on years to come. Imagine being able to use the same crib for your child five years down the line. If you can’t appreciate the money and time you will save, you definitely have a problem.

Different sizes

If you are looking for a bassinet that comes in different sizes based on the age and height of your baby, KidCo P4012 PeaPod Plus is all you need. They have a normal crib and then another one that’s plus size. That means you should order the size that best fits the age and size of your baby.

After all, even products like shoes come in different sizes. If your child is a toddler growing at a fast pace, the regular model will turn out too small for them. So simply get the plus size and you will have your baby’s sleeping issues sorted.

Protecting your child

KidCo P4012 PeaPod Plus is covered in a lightweight mesh to promote airflow and act as an insect screen. That way, your baby’s breathing needs are well taken care of, just as they are protected from pesky mosquitoes. Who knows? It might even do great to keep off snakes and rats if you are camping in the outdoors.

You will be happy to know that you can go out sunbathing without worrying about the harmful effects of UV rays. Before sunlight reaches your child, it first goes through the screen which shields your child.

VERDICT KidCo P4012 PeaPod Plus

You are definitely in the right place if you are looking for a bassinet that will work for you for a long time. It doesn’t matter if your intended use is during sleep overs or hotel travel. KidCo P4012 PeaPod Plus works well for you even when you are having a nice time next to the beach.

As a parent, you won’t have a problem setting up KidCo P4012 PeaPod Plus as it pops into place as soon as you pull it out of the bag. The bassinet has a lightweight mess that ensures your baby is constantly supplied with fresh air.
