Sturdy and easy to set up
This is a great travel cot, once you get the hang of it it's easy to set up and take down. The only shame is that the toy mobile winder is poor quality and broke on ours within a month. I took it apart to try fix it (cannot return it as we received the cot as a gift) and noticed that one of the drive cogs has a weak pin. It's pointed out on the attached photo which may be useful to any steelcraft reps to strengthen on future models. Other than that it's a great product.

Cot is ok however monitor the mobile (musical toy) as it might fall on your bub’s face!
Husband and I bought the portacot in preparation for our first born, assembled it before giving birth and noticed that the mobile (musical toy) keeps falling down. We tried several positions for it, including following demo pictures but same issue happens. It stays up when you put it but falls off the following day (falls towards inside the cot!). A safety hazzard so monitor the mobile and ensure it's secured when you get the product.
Extremely sturdy, exactly what you want from a portable cot!
After reading a few reviews about the difficulty that some people have had in putting together this portable cot I was somewhat apprehensive, however I decided to purchase it anyway and have been very impressed. Clicking in the four top posts and then pushing down on the centre part of the base is extremely easy and the cot pops right up into place. It is extremely study which is a quality that I have come to expect from Steelcraft, having purchased the Strider Signature stroller as well. The instructions are clear on how to assemble the access...ories such as the mobile. The bassinet is easy to install and with the rods in the bottom that act as support beams it definitely gets my tick of approval. The foldaway change table was the only slight hassle I had when setting the cot up for the first time, as the pictures on the instructions were slightly different to how the cot looks in real life. However, having put it together and disassembled it once now it gets a lot easier each time. Overall I rate this portable cot very highly in terms of its stability, ease of use, features and accessories especially given its price.

What is the difference in the two 4 in 1 portable cots?
Hi shopper98, thanks for your question. Please email us at email@example.com or call us on 1300 303 330 and advise us of the other Steelcraft Portable cot which you are wanting to compare to the Steelcraft 4 in 1 Melange. Kind regards, the Steelcraft team.
Do you have more than 2, from what I can see you have two colours.
What a crazy response......forget it.
Hi shopper98, I apologise that you feel my response was not able to assist you. In our current Steelcraft range, we have:
Melange 4 in 1 Portacot
Snooze n Play 4 in 1 (exclusive to baby bunting)
Siesta 2 in 1 Portacot
We used to have the Denim 4 in 1 portacot which has now been discontinued from our range. If you are referring to the differences between the Melange and Snooze n Play only have cosmetic differences in the colours and the toys on the mobiles. This also applies to the Denim 4 in 1 portacot in relation to cosmetic differences.
