Safe and functional

I have used this cot for the past two years while looking after my grandson. It is safe,practical and functional. I've used it on the 3 settings and it served its purpose. Great price and looks great with other idea furniture. My grandson is now two and a half years and he loves it as a bed. Easy to clean and for air to circulate.

Too low when on low setting

Have loved using this cot for my LO up until tonight.....we have had to lower the level of the cot as she showed us today that she can go from lying on her back to standing up quite quickly...sh'es 8 months old! The lowest setting of this cot I find to be too low. I am 176cm tall but it is a struggle to put LO into the cot when she is half asleep without waking her again. It's a shame that there's not a half way house on the levelling. Apart from that the cot is great....
Simple design, baby loves it
Too low on low setting

Love it

This cot is very beautiful with its simple style and classic look. It is well priced for a simple cot. It has two levels for different stages in your baby's life, and also converts to a toddler bed when he gets a bit older. It is a bit tricky to change the levels of the cot, having to unscrew bits and pieces before being able to move it up or down, but it isn't something you will need to do very often anyway, so this wasn't a big drama for me.
Beautiful, simple style. Well priced
Bit fiddly to change the levels


A great looking, classy cot for a good price. Great for summer as it enables air to circulate through as its not overly bulky. Would highly recommend this cot (and looks really cute with the IKEA canopies that retail for about $20-$25).
Easy to assemble and easy to move around the room as it is very light. We live in a unit so this was a great choice as it doesn't take up too much space and doesn't make the room look cluttered. It is also a very low cost option and complies with Australian Standards so is a good quality product. We also bought the circus canopy to go with it and it looks great (and suitable for both a boy or a girl).
Nothing although the price of the cot has gone up slightly this year so when my mum was looking to buy one for her place for sleepovers, we decided to go with the IKEA Sniglar cot which is very similar to the Gulliver but around $70 cheaper. It also looks great - just not a painted timber but if you are feeling creative you could paint any colour you want.


We really like this cot. We have 2 boys and found it to be a good low price cot. Some cots can look quite girlie. We liked that it is simple and doesn't take over the room. It was easy to change the height of the cot. It is also very easy to keep clean.
This a great low price cot that does the job. Its design is simple and looks good in a modern bedroom. Easy to co-ordinate with any bedroom decor. Would suit a boy or a girl. Easy to assemble and move around the room.
Nothing we love this cot

Pretty good

The cots are good for the price and they are nice & simple in design so they would easily blend in well with any nursery.

The cot doesn't come with a drop-down side and in hindsight I wish we had this feature because it would save my back when I am leaning over the rails to settle bubba.

Also, the cot is a little creaky when I'm rocking the baby. I'm looking for ideas to fix it (surely it's an easy thing to fix).
Inexpensive, simple design. Adjustable height levels. Can be adapted to a toddler bed.
Bulky and heavy to transport home. For example, I would not have been able to lift it in the car on my own (let alone bring it into the house).


This is the second IKEA cot we have purchased in recent years and I really can't find anything to fault with it. It is so cheap compared to other cots on the market and I love its simple design and colour. It just seems like it would fit with any decor. Not too difficult to put together. The only issue you can have is that sometimes these cots are not in stock when you go to get them.
Very cheap yet nice simple design of cot that fits in with most decors. Relatively quick and easy to put together.
There are none.


This is a nice looking cot that is suitable for both boys and girls as it comes in a nice simple white colour. It feels very sturdy as looks great. It is a good hard waring cot and it can transform into a toddler bed later on, making it worth the money. It does not cost a lot and looks good.
Meets all the necessary cot standards, looks good, quite easy to put together. Great value cot as you can pick one up for under $200 at Ikea. Usually lots are in stock.
The only con is having to put the cot together yourself as the instructions are not that great.


This is a sturdy low cost cot that looks good in any decor. Very affordable when you compare to most other cots these days and this cot meets all the required safety standards in Australia. We chose this cot because it looked great, could be adjusted as baby grows and would suit any decor quite easily.
Very cheap and easy to assemble. looks good in any decor. Can be used for boys and girls. A comfortable cot that does the job.
The first time we went to buy this cot it was not available at IKEA but the second time they were.

Questions & Answers

Can you please tell me the two heights from the floor to the slatted base? Thanks

Sorry unfortunately no as I no longer have the cot. Perhaps you can see the dimensions online?
