The Shrunks Toddler Travel Bed Review - Is It Worth In 2022?
– By Eric Smith
The Shrunks is a well-established brand famous for its high-quality toddler products such as inflatable bouncer pools, bed tents, air cushions, sleeping pads, travelling beds etc.
Today, we are reviewing one of the most selling products of this brand: the toddler tuckaire inflatable travelling bed.
So, if you are looking for a quick travel bed for your baby, make sure you read the full review. Here, we will discuss this bed in detail and see if this bed is really good as claimed or not? Let’s find out.
The Shrunks Toddler Travel Bed Review
The Shrunks toddler travel air mattress has a pretty simple design like other toddler air mattresses in the market.
This is a two-piece set consisting of an inflatable air mattress and a highly raised inflatable safety bumper that holds the air mattress from sliding and also keeps your toddler from falling onto the ground.
Moreover, it is available in one colour variant, brown and white, and you don’t get any other option. So, make sure your child likes it before placing the order.
The bed is built of high-quality PVC, ensuring a comfortable sleep even when you are travelling for hours with your little ones.
One thing to keep in mind is that this airbed is not waterproof, so you’ll need to keep it away from water, milk or other types of liquids.
Otherwise, you will have to face inconvenience while drying it, which sometimes may take time if you are not using a dryer or leaving it under the sunlight for at least 30 minutes.

Size & Weight:
Sizing and weight are two critical aspects you should consider while looking for a travelling airbed.
This airbed is designed in such a way that a 2-5 years old child can comfortably sleep on it, and the firmness can be adjusted according to the child’s comfort zone.
Its fully inflated size is 60 x 37 x 9 inches which can be called a perfect size for travelling in cars, SUVs, RVs and trucks, neither so big nor so small.
Moreover, the deflated size is around 16 x 7 x 7 inches. However, the complete airbed setup inside the bag weighs approximately 6.6 pounds (3 kg) which is not that heavy but not light either.
So, in the size & weight category, it works pretty well.
Ease Of Use:
The Shrunks toddler travel bed is convenient enough, and you will never face any issue while setting it up for your little ones. Also, packing the bed after use is an easy task.
I’ve noticed that most toddler beds are not that effective in terms of sheet holding. The sheets sometimes come out so quickly when the baby rolls over.
But, if we talk specifically about this bed, it is neither fully attached to the bottom part nor completely ejectable, which gives you a slight advantage over other toddler beds.
The company has not fixed its edges with the lower section that helps you fit the sheets perfectly that won’t come out until you want.
Moreover, its carrying cover has almost double the space to its size, which can be used to put in other stuff like toys, blankets, and sheets.
Portable toddler inflatable air mattresses usually don’t come up with a vital feature called built-in inflation and deflation pump.
Perhaps because they are too smaller in size compared to our regular size airbed and inflates and deflates much faster even with a manual pump. So, if you want one with a built-in pump, you’ll hardly find it.
You need to inflate it manually with an electric, hand or foot pump, which is not a difficult chore.
If we talk about its inflation time, it literally takes 30-35 seconds to inflate completely; that is pretty fast. So, you don’t need to wait for too long like your standard airbeds.
The bed also features a self-closing valve that doesn’t let the air go out even when the valve is open. So, you can close the valve slowly without any hassle.
What It Includes:
This complete kit includes a small and compact but powerful Jetaire electric pump which makes inflation and deflation an easy task, a 3-in-1 nozzle, a high-quality carry bag and a BPA and lead-free toddler bed.
In addition, this inflatable blow-up bed is backed by two years of manufacturing warranty.
What We Like:
- Highly durable and comfortable to toddlers
- The self-closing valve is a great feature
- Rapid inflation and deflation
- Sheets doesn’t come out easily
- Includes all necessary accessories along with large size carry bag
- Easy to use and pack
- Fits perfectly even in the small cars
- Doesn’t have sliding issues
- 2 years of warranty
Keep In Mind:
- Airbed is not completely ejectable
- Can hold up to 150 pounds of weight
- Need to clean safely
- Has strong odor of PVC
- No safety rails on the top and bottom sides
