Where The Monster Sleeps – Cosatto Moon Unit Review.

I have never looked at a travel cot and said ‘Wow’ I mean why would you? A travel cot is just a bland, usually neutral coloured place for your baby to sleep on occasion. Right!?


I have very recently said ‘Wow’ to my very first travel cot. A big open mouthed, jaw dropping ‘WOW’! But what is this travel cot I speak of? It’s the Cosatto Moon Unit of course!

As with all things Cosatto, it is bright, funky and full of personality. 

The Moon Unit is embellished with the very popular Little Monster motif, just like on the Moova Car Seat that I told you about last year. The very bright lime Green makes a come back as you would expect with any Little Monster product and is set against a charcoal Grey. The padded cot bar is White with further Little Monster motif’s and cheeky wording ‘on the rampage’ dotted around. 

As we haven’t really been away recently and been able to trial this very funky cot over night I decided that the best form of action was to set it up in Leo’s room at Granny’s house. Leo is there 3 days a week and has recently spent a few nights there while I was away in Germany last month.

Up until this monstrous cot landed, Leo was making use of a very old travel cot that Granny had used throughout many years of child-minding, so it was great that we could now get rid of the cot that had certainly seen better days, and replace it with this cheeky bright one! 

The overall weight of the travel cot is 13.8kg and you can certainly feel it, but once the cot is erect you can feel just how sturdy it is, and I can gurantee that my little monster couldn’t escape the compounds of this cot. It is a great size in both height and length, so there is plenty of room and no nagging worries that Leo may escape and be able to cause all kinds of trouble…

The Moon Unit comes all folded in a very convenient travel bag and contains everything that you need to get started. There is no real assembly per say as all you need to do is open it out and put the mattress in, before it is then ready to rock ‘n’ roll in true monster style.

There is a great attachable changing unit that you can have over the cot, perfect if there is no-where suitable to change them while you are away. It comes with a detachable bar with monstrous monsters to keep little one entertained during the dreaded nappy change operation. There is nothing worse than a wriggly squirmy monster child when you are trying to clean up their nappy explosion! 

The changing unit is great for Granny as she has arthritis and there is no way she can change Leo on the floor. And it keeps him restrained to a certain extent as there is no where he can run…

Another fab feature is the bassinet which you can attach into the cot for a small baby, it brings the baby up to a higher height so you can reach in easily to cater for the needs of a younger baby who will most likely want a feed in the middle of the night. Obviously once the little one begins rolling/pulling themselves up then the bassinet will need to be removed to eliminate any risk of the baby falling out.

I did find it a bit tricky to attach the bassinet, but once it was on and secured you can feel just how securely they are attached. When using something like a bassinet or over cot changer, you really do rest assured knowing that your pride and joy is safe in everything they do.

Granny has had to purchase a second travel cot as Leo’s little cousin will be sharing his room at Granny’s with him from July time, and will need his very own place to nap during the day. I can honestly say that this other cot is nowhere near as bright and full of life as the Moon Unit. Somehow this other cot dwindles way into the distance until you cannot really see it any more…But the Cosatto Moon Unit is there huffing and puffing, breathing ferociously and can be seen glowing for miles around.

The Moon Unit is an all-round travel cot and suitable for all ages, it is very apparent that Cosatto have done their homework to share with us the cheekiest cot on the market and also how they have catered the cot to each age range. 

This cot has the ability to see your newborn baby into the ripe old age of toddlerhood, which to me justifies the £160.00 RRP price tag that is on this cheeky cot. However... you can currently get a bargain at Amazon for £135.00!

This is just one more product that I have fallen in love with out of the Cosatto range. I love how cheeky and colourful everything is that comes out of Cosatto Towers, and above all else the high quality and standard that they adhere to in the expansion of new lines.

Back in the Summer I brought you my very first Cosatto review on the very bright, almost luminous Pear Drop and that was the start of my Brand Buddy status.

Over the past 6 months I have told you all about:

Being a Cosatto Brand Buddy has given me the opportunity to try some fantastic products and being able to share our very colourful adventure with you has been amazing. I hope that these reviews have given you an insight into this fabulous baby brand and maybe even helped you pick out some cheeky purchases for your little one.
