The rigid inflation technology and wide base create an inflatable structure that is sturdy and stable. No hinges, no mechanisms. Its rounded structure is soft and safe. Since the GoCrib has no large metal or plastic components, it is super lightweight and incredibly compact. And, since it comes with its own backpack, it’s amazingly easy to take with you. Anywhere you go. The GoCrib is not just for overnight trips – take it to the park, the beach, a soccer game, a friend’s house! GoCrib sets up quickly, is easy to use, and packs just as easily. The dual action pump inflates the GoCrib in seconds, and the pressure gauge tells you when it’s ready to use. When packing, the GoCrib valves lock open to make deflation a snap, and the Crib can be stuffed into its backpack just like a sleeping bag. No folding or rolling. It’s that simple.
