Good points

• Foldable and has a carry bag.
• Bottom tray.
• Canopy.
• Insect cover.
• Music box with night light and vibration.

Bad points

• Serious safety failure: On the bassinet tested, there are substantial areas of non-breathable material, including up to 1cm higher than the top surface of the supplied mattress all around, as well as material at the left and right sides.
• Mattress thickness does not match with recommendation.
• In response to CHOICE's safety findings, Kmart says that the bassinet "is designed, constructed and tested to meet the European Standard, the EN 1130:2019 Children's furniture Cribs Safety requirements and test methods... We note your comments on non-breathable material. We have incorporated in our design to have as much breathable zone as possible without impacting the structural strength of the bassinet. We are keen to understand more about testing conducted by Choice, as it may assist in informing product assessments along with future product iterations."

Based on our safety performance test. Recommended models meet all key safety requirements and score at least 80% for performance. Some lower-scoring models (60-65%) may still be worth considering if they meet all key safety requirements, but fail on minor points such as finger entrapment.

Ease of use score View more details.

We rate the ease of assembly and/or ease of installation, where applicable. We currently do not have scores for all products tested, so ease of use does not factor into the overall score.

There is no Australian standard for bassinets, so we use our own in-house method that is based on a typical home setting and rate whether the bassinet meets key safety requirements. We also adapt methods from other standards. See our how we test article for details.
