The Graco Travel Lite Crib gets rave reviews for its ability to be used as a bassinet, small crib, or play yard. Consumer reviewers say its small size helps it fit easily even in very small spaces. Some reviewers say their child outgrew it quickly. At about 20 pounds, it is heavier than other travel cribs, but also more versatile.
No complaints about safety. Although the Graco website does not list specific safety information about the Graco Travel Lite Crib, it says all of its products must pass stringent safety standards and rigorous testing. No safety issues were reported in the professional or consumer reviews we read. Owners say it's sturdy and stable.
Easy to assemble. Consumer reviewers say the Graco Travel Lite Crib is simple to put together, but some had trouble installing the canopy on the bassinet. The crib has a push-button fold and includes a carrying case. The bassinet can easily be removed from the crib/play yard.
To clean the Travel Lite Crib, use household soap and warm water, then drip dry. The carry bag may be machine-washed. Carefully remove sand from the crib before packing; sand can damage the top rail lock.
All things to baby. The Graco Travel Lite Crib is a highly versatile product -- it can become a bassinet, crib and play yard. However, it is smaller than comparable packable cribs, and some parents say they had to buy another travel crib after their child outgrew this one, but weren't ready to move out of their crib. The Grado Travel Lite has wheels, so can be rolled easily from room to room.
Some consumer reviewers love the smaller size because the crib fits easily beside the parents' bed, in a hotel room or a guest room at the grandparents' house. The bassinet -- for babies under 15 pounds -- is removable. Some reviewers complain that the mattress is too thin and hard.
Weighing less than 20 pounds, the Graco Travel Lite Crib is easy to carry, but it weighs more than other travel cribs on the market. It's recommended for babies under 3 feet tall and comes with a one-year warranty.
Just under 55 owners have posted opinions of the Graco Travel Lite Crib to Amazon.com, where it maintains an average rating of 4.5 stars (out of a possible 5). Parents like the versatility offered by the Graco Travel Lite Crib, but a few note that it will be necessary to upgrade to a larger model as the baby grows.
