Serious safety failures: 1.The mattress is not firm enough, creating a possible suffocation risk if a child rolls onto its side or front. 2. If the cot collapses, it could trap a child's neck.
Very minor safety failure: There are pinching points at the corners where the top rails are joined that are a hazard to the person folding/unfolding the cot.
The manufacturer responded to our findings with the following statement: "The Kmart Baby Solutions Travel Porta-Cot has been tested regularly by internationally recognised and accredited laboratories and has passed the full requirements of the mandatory Australian Standard AS/NZS 2195:1999 which is for folding cots."
