Anyone Have A Kidco Peapod or a P&T Traveller?

I'm looking into travel beds for my toddler. I'm going to be going on a trip with her and the idea of lugging around a pack 'n' play is not appealing. I've been looking at the Peapod by Kidco and the Traveller by Phil & Ted's. The P&T is more expensive, but I have found one new on craigslist for the same price as a new Peapod, so price doesn't matter. Does anyone have either of these? Love it? Hate it? I'd love to hear your opinion!

We have a peapod. I love how light it is, simple to set up and it folds down to almost nothing.

Same here. We have a peapod and took it for DD to sleep in while camping. She was about 7 months old when we used it and it worked well.

Thank you both! I am leaning towards the Peapod because of its easy set-up, and I have heard that the P&T traveller isn't very durable. Thanks for your input!

ETA: If you don't mind answering, where did you buy your Peapods?

I bought mine at the local Fred Meyer (kind of a grocery/all purpose store, if you're unfamiliar.)

I also have a peapod. I have 3 actually. One for each of my kids. I would suggest the bigger one, the PeaPod Plus. I've seen both versions, IRL. The original (smaller) won't last nearly as long simply because of size. My 4 year old still sleeps in his with plenty of room. I bought the bigger ones and I'm glad I did. My kids enjoy sleeping in them.

Oh and I got mine from some internet site. Honestly, I'm not sure where. I googled it and found the cheapest price I could, especially since I was buying 3. I know you can get them from Babies R Us and One Step Ahead and maybe even straight from their site, Kidco.

Good luck!

we have the phil and ted's, but we did have a few of the bottom strap things break. It doesn't really affect the function or stability of it, but it is frustrating that something so expensive broke pretty easily. Other than that, I love it. It folds up so small and is so light to carry compared to a regular pack n play. I haven't seen the peapod in person to compare, but it looks like it would be great too.
