Camping cots are portable, foldaway beds ideal for camping. Camping cots for kids come in different sizes and designs. They are great for camping, but also for day trips to the beach, visiting relatives and for staying in hotels where cots are not available. Camping cots also give kids the security of sleeping in a familiar bed even when they are away from home.

Pop Up Travel Basinet

For babies, a travel basinet is as light as they come. These pop up beds weigh around 2.27kgand fold into a small pouch. Basinets, also called Moses Baskets, are suitable for babies until they can sit up unassisted. They generally come with mosquito netting, making them ideal for camping or day trips to the park. Pop up baby basinets sell at £13-$50 in 2011.

PeaPod Cots

A peapod is a lightweight bed solution for babies; with some models large enough for toddlers. They resemble a mini tent so they can also be used on the beach. Peapods are foldable, lightweight and include a soft air bed. Peapod travel beds cost around £39 to £58 in 2011.

Foldaway Travel Crib

With a foldaway crib you have a larger structure suitable for toddlers who are able to stand up. The child is safe and sound inside, as high sides mean they can't go wandering. Travel cribs are like a regular crib but made of lightweight materials for easy transportation. These foldaway cribs can weigh as little as 4.99kg but are very sturdy, so they can be used for longer vacations. They come with an inflatable mattress and a mesh net; meaning the travel crib can also be used outside on the beach or for camping vacations. Foldaway travel cribs retail at £97 to £162 as of 2011.

Folding Cot

A folding cot is a military style camp bed. Different models come with or without a mattress and they are available in sizes from child to adult. The bed folds away for easy storage and some models even roll up. These kind of beds suit older children who are not likely to roll out of bed in the night. They are economical and easy to assemble. Foldaway beds are great as a spare bed solution when playmates stay overnight. Basic models retail between £22 to £39 as of 2011.

Child's Portable Air Matress

A child's air bed is similar to a regular air bed but in a smaller size but with a raised section around the sides. These are a great solution for children who no longer need a crib but who do need the added security of bed rails. The raised edges mean that the child will not fall out of bed at night. Most of these beds come with a self pumping device. Beds are available in single or double sizes and typically retail in 2011 for around £45 or £52.
