I absolutely love this bassinet, we purchased this for our 4th baby after he grew out of his Moses basket and we kept if for our fifth baby.
It is great, I love that it has mesh sides to make it breathable but it's a thicker mesh not that flimsy mesh some bassinets have on it.
It's sturdy, it has wheels so it's portable, it's a good height, it's a good price and I'm pretty certain it was rated one of the only bassinets to have passed the safety testing done by 'choice'.
As a mum of 5 and having used 5 different bassinets this is hands down my favorite and the one I would recommend to other mums.
Best purchase for Bub.
- breathable sides
- lets us be close to the baby wherever we are in the house
- we loved the colour too!
- Despite it looking like it was held up simply by velcro, it seemed quite study.
Easy to assemble with two people (much easier than IKEA furniture). Good quality material used with sturdy timber frame. Baby likes sleeping in bassinet and sides are breathable. Fits neatly beside bed and is portable and lightweight with wheels. Mattress fits standard size sheets and mattress protectors which is handy
Perfect portable bassinet!
We found this to be the perfect bassinet for our baby because we found it easy to move around the house and found it easy to put our baby to sleep as the wheels helped rock her to sleep.The breathable mesh is great for easy airflow and cleaning. We bought the white color which was easy to mix and match with our normal furniture.
Great quality and safe
We brought this from gumtree when my son was born. I was undecided about getting a bassinet but so glad we did. It has wheels so you can rock baby and alao move around the house easily.
It is a good size, small enough to fit next to your bed but quite long so baby can be in it for many months.
Love the breathable mesh, recommend by choice mag. Total winner
Easy to roll around the house and easy to rock. The mesh sides make it good for airflow. The only thing I didn't like was that it is pretty deep and low and wasn't that great after my EC. We purchased as it was recommended by choice. We purchased ikea pillow cases and they fit perfectly as a fitted bassinet sheet.
Best purchase for 2nd baby
This bassinet was sturdy, among the only 3 bassinets safety tested (and approved) by Choice, and fits beautifully in terms of decor. That it has castor wheels is a major bonus because we could wheel it into baby's new room as he transitioned into his cot. Also, it was ideal for rocking and shaking to help bubba sleep. The airy mesh was perfect in terms of reducing chances of SIDS. It also looks fantastic - very minimalist and would fit into any decor. I could pull the bassinet close to me and reach across to pat bub. Sometimes, I would slide my knees under the mattress to rock bubba to sleep. I cannot recommend this crib/bassinet enough.
We were overwhelmed by the sheer number of choices for bassinets and cots when we first started looking and read review after review. In the end, we decided to go with the Tasman Eco Amore and have been very happy with the choice. The mesh sides are breathable and allows a good airflow but they are also strong and secure. It is a good size for our long little girl and can be used up to 6 months, however I think she may outgrow it before then. It's great that it can be wheeled from room-to-room and most importantly we can rock her to sleep in it.... The quality of the wood and finish are great and look fantastic! The only downside would be the quality of the caster wheels as they can get a little stuck in which direction they are pointing, but we haven't really found this to be a big issue. Overall, we are very happy with this bassinet! easy to assemble, breathable sides, looks quality, easily moves from room-to-room, can rock baby to sleep caster wheels occasionally get stuck
Great bassinet for the first few months with the baby. It's a good height to have beside the bed so you don't have to get up in the middle of the night. The wheels make it really convenient to move between rooms as well as just to rock the baby to sleep. The mattress is not fantastic but is ok.
Quality of the frame, height, wheels
Mattress is not fantastic
Easy to put together, change sheets & etc. Perfect height for sleeping next to your bed & the mesh lets you hear your baby easily. Steady & will last for a growing family. It has wheels so is easily moved around the house if you need. The only downside about the height is that a 2 year old can stand on the rails and lean in!! But that's insignificant
Perfect Bassinette for us
I originally placed the King Parrot / Boori version on Layby but switched it due to the depth of the bassinette as pregnancy had injured my back. While I'm sure it would have been a great purchase, I am so glad I bought the Tasman Eco Amore instead. It's not too deep that you really have to bend over but deep enough to be secure. It didn't take long to put together. Frame is sturdy.. So sturdy that I used to use it to help me out of bed in the days after labour! Love the mesh, breathable sides that you can see through slightly and is great comf...ort amongst all the SIDS dangers. The bed part can also rock slightly should your baby need settling. It fitted nicely next to our bed to have baby close and being on wheels it can be moved easily out of the way, pulled closer to settle baby or moved room to room. Wheels are also lockable. It's a great size bassinette and while it is more expensive than some, we got amazing usage out of it due to its generous size. My taller than average son was nearly 9 months old before we moved him to his cot and this was only due to him learning to go from laying to sitting while on the floor so we moved him before he did it in bed! (Obviously this will be different for every baby) It's still in excellent condition and will now fit into his robe in his nursery for stuffed animals and baskets will rest on the bottom frame for toys! Perfect storage until used for next baby. He was always comfortable, secure and happy in it. Sturdy, breathable, moveable, looks great. Baby won't outgrow it in a hurry (size wise anyway!) Not everyone can/wants to spend that much on a Bassinette but those who do will hopefully be as happy with it as us!
Love, Love, Love.
So safe, sturdy, perfect. I used a different bassinet with my first two children and I did not feel they were safe or comfortable. This bassinets mattress fits very snug and flat, although a little firm bubs is very happy in there. Breathable mesh sides. The frame is sturdy and easy to assemble. Great that its on wheels as you can move around the house or just push aside to vacuum under.
Safe, peace of mind. Bubs very happy.
A little low.
Best investment so far
I Loved it. The fact that it was mesh there was a much reduced risk of SIDS. My newborn enjoyed that he could see shadows and light just flicker through the mesh. And being beside my bed I could hear him clearly breathing, as being my first it was nice to feel reassured he was ok.
Felt closer to my baby being beside our bed with the mesh.
Loved this bassinet so much I am having trouble parting with it. So safe and simple easy design. Good size. We loved everything about it. My only improvement would be to add something so you can easily hang a mobile above it... Which is not a huge issue.
Mesh is not that easy to take apart to clean, however with older style bassinets this is not even an option. We used it for the first 3 months and it still looks brand new. Can't fault it.
Just read another review and yes tray attachment in the bottom would b nice.
Nowhere to hang a mobile from but there are other ways around this (roof, or buy one which attaches to side of a cot) small potatoes really.
Couldn't be happier with our Tasman bassinet!!!after having a nightmare time with our mothers choice bassinet we were looking for one that was sturdy, had breathable sides as our newborn likes to move a lot in her sleep and safe for our daughter!this was better than I expected!great design, looks good, wheels are great and mattress is nice and firm as per SIDS recommendations!A really great buy!
I would have liked a tray in the bottom to put nappies, etc
Happy with the Tasman Eco Bassinette
We weren't sure if we would use a bassinette, but after having baby sleep in a little bassinette next to our bed in hospital I don't know what we would have done if we'd come home & didn't have one!
The Tasman Eco Amore is stylish, safe, light and most importantly baby LOVES to sleep in it.
The "fabric" sides can be taken off with ease for cleaning & ensures good air flow.
As it's on wheels we have found that we have baby with us asleep while chating with friends/watching TV in the lounge room, and just wheel him into our room when we are of...
Great for small babies
I wasn't going to use a bassinet but as I had a smaller baby (under 2.5kg/5lbs) I decided that it would be a good idea to use one.
I bought my bassinet at Baby Bunting - they said that it was a popular bassinet for smaller and premmie babies. It seemed much more suitable than the other bassients as it is higher and has mesh covering that you can see through. I think it is also quite stylish compared to the 'frilly' bassinets out there. Really happy with my decision (particulary after having read the other reviews since then).
Good for smaller babies, stylish
More expensive than other bassinets
After care service
The glue on the Bassinette had started to separate. I rang Tasman Eco to report the issue. They were polite and friendly with no issues about warranty ( I had lodged online). Within one day the service rep had contacted me to arrange a time to cone to the house - he was so prompt suggesting the next day I actually had to request a later date! When the service rep arrived he not only fixed the Bassinette but noticed we had a Tasman Eco cot as well and asked if we had any questions or problems. My father in law hadn't put it together correctly a...nd the agent fixed it for me as well as lowering the mattress setting and showing me how best to use the sliding gate. Fantastic aftercare service The Bassinette glue started to separate but warranty hasnt been an issue
Practical, stylish, safe
Love this bassinet. Originally chosen as it was rated the safest by Choice, it was a happy coincidence that it also looked great! The mesh sides for good airflow went a long way in giving peace of mind (i.e. to reduce risk of SIDS). Love that its so mobile, really easy to move around between rooms or even just closer to the chair when patting and shhh-shhh's are required. Much cheaper than similar stylish brands (like Boori) and sustainable plantation wood used. I'll be upgrading to a Tasman Eco cot when the time comes.
SIDS-friendly (breathable mesh), stylish, lovely finish, mobile, very good value for money
Questions & Answers
Just bough Tasma Eco Amore but can't seem to find many bedding options to fit the mattress (80x40cm)
None of the Bubba Blue stuff or any of the other brands I could find fit this size.
Any suggestions on where to get bedding?
