What on Earth is Kubbie Sleep? I hear you ask. Well Kubbie Sleep is the innovative new product by Joie (one of the leading baby brands) and I got to test it first. When I heard I would be reviewing the Kubbie Sleep I was immediately very excited. I’ve yet to find a Joie product I didn’t like and this one looked sure to please.
The Joie Kubbie Sleep
On Wednesday morning our Kubbie arrived in all it’s glory, although I have to admit, I was expecting a much larger box. Maybe I had to buy the mattress separately and was unaware. Maybe the mattress would be delivered later. Either way I took it upstairs to crack it open.
I was so delighted when I opened the box to find a singular item. There were not several different parts and complicated ways to connect them. At that point I knew that Joie understand what being a busy parent is like! Anyway, like a kid at Christmas, I started to open out the Kubbie. So, what’s included:
The main travel cot frame
Two connector straps
As for the mattress? This is where the hard work came in…just kidding…there are two separate small poles that you slide together then slide through the mattress to keep it rigid. Then you just place it in the cot.
I am actually amazed at how quick and easy the crib was to set up. I know it’s a travel cot so it has to be portable and compact but I was quite expecting it to take less than a minute to get it from the box to the co-sleeper position!
There are so many benefits to the Kubbie! The biggest by far though is that it’s a co-sleeper. I’ve never seen a travel cot with the ability to turn into a co-sleeper at the push of a button (well 2) before now. The technology behind it seems so simple too so it begs the question why nobody else has thought of it. It goes to show just how creative and understanding Joie Baby really are.
The Co-Sleeping Position
The Kubbie Sleep is not just for bedtime though. It actually has the option to remove the basinette, which means the cot can be used as a playpen but it also has a large panel on the side that can be unzipped perfect for play time. If you’re like me with a toddler who can take unpredictable naps then the panel also allows a smoother transition from wherever your toddler fell asleep to the Kubbie without breaking your back or waking them.
It’s so easy to travel with as it folds away nice and compact but because it is so light it’s easy to carry. The durability of the cot isn’t compromised with it being so light either, it really is a great quality product.
The Kubbie Sleep is also stylish as well as practical. It comes in 2 different colours**, both neutral and the material they’ve used is very fashionable.
You can pick this fabulous item up for just £99.99°!! With everything it can do I would say this is a bargain.
Joie Baby have really impressed me with this one so it’s very hard to find any downfalls. The only thing I can find is that there are no dimensions on the box. There are dimensions on the websites you can buy it from though, so this would only be problematic if you could pick them up in-store.
Mother Perry’s Opinion
In my honest opinion I have to say that our whole family love this product! We love it so much that Stuart and I have decided to wave goodbye to our previous co-sleeper.The Joie Kubbie Sleep is just so much easier to use, space efficient and stylish. I also think you really cannot grumble at the price of it, if this had been on the market when I had Lottie in 2016 it would’ve been snapped up.
Where To Buy
Currently in the UK you can order the Joie Kubbie Sleep online from Argos, Very and Boots (great if you’re a card holder) for £99.99. Since it’s a brand new product you’ll also be a bit of a trend setter. I can imagine these will fly off the shelves so if you do manage to get your hands on one why not take a picture and use the hashtags #joiebaby and #moatipkubbie.
*The Basinette is sold separately in some regions.
**Colours vary per region.
°£99.99 is subject to the UK only. Please look at the Joie website to find out the price in your region and currency.
