Good Idea

I actually purchased this product, not given in exchange for review. It's a beautiful design but the sheets don't fit great, stain easy and the bassinet gets dinged from normal use. A month in, the cardboard is torn and the sheets have spit up stains you can't wash out for the life of you. Wish I could get a little longer use out of the bassinet :(... I might have to buy again, no matter how much I hate the idea, because it is the one bassinet I can move with one hand free from room to room.

Peace of Mind

This bassinet provided us peace of mind that our little one would be well rested and safe, and also that we weren't needlessly contributing to landfills. We love that it is collapsible and travels well, and travel with it on a weekly basis. Now, at almost 6 months, we're getting ready to transition to a crib, but are so grateful for how beneficial this has been for us! For those saying, "It's just a cardboard box," DUH! It says that in the description. But it's so much more than that. It's thoughtfully engineered to travel well, be lightweight, be designed beautifully, and be environmentally friendly. I recommend this product strongly to anyone considering those criteria.

Amazing Product

I received this Kind Bassinet by Dockatot from Stellar Product Testing Panel in exchange for my honest review. It’s amazing how this product is made out of recyclable thick Cardboard. It also comes with a waterproof mattress and a cotton fitted sheet for it. This Bassinet is super easy to use, literally less than two minutes to set it up. Easy to move or carry around since it comes in a carry case for travel or storage. It’s confortable and looks luxurious. Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to try this for my baby.

Convenient lightweight and chic

I was excited to receive a product from DockATot through Stellar Product Testing Panel. As someone who already owns and loves the lounger, I knew their quality was excellent. I received the Kind Bassinet and loved the ease of assembly. The Kind Bassinet is made of recyclable materials and is cleverly designed. I loved the marble colored finish, it was so chic and is the same marble they use for their covers for the lounger! The mission behind the design and function was impressive to read about. The company makes intricate cardboard designs and this eco friendly design is an extension to consumers who are wanting to be conscious of their impact on the planet. Even the insert for the bassinet is recyclable.

The bassinet itself is extremely lightweight and totally portable throughout the home. It would be especially helpful for anyone with small spaces as well.

At 4 months my baby can still fit in the bassinet, however, he will soon outgrow it. It’s perfect for those first few newborn months where you need to put your baby down but need the portability of something more stable that can stand alone.

Very impressive

The DockATot Kind Bassinet is definitely a concept that is completely new to me because of the shape and material. Kind Bassinet is made with fully sustainable corrugated cardboard and has a non-toxic protective varnish coating for spot cleaning.

This bassinet comes with a water resistant super comfortable with a Dupont™ Sorona® foam core. Included is a 100% cotton fitted sheet.

The set up for the bassinet was so easy and under 60 seconds, hassle free for sure. Very easy to breakdown and set up wherever you take it, makes for a no brainer in portability.

Due to the material of the bassinet it is very lightweight and easy to move around anywhere in the house. I recently had carpal tunnel surgery so carrying heavy bulky items around the house is not something I can do and this bassinet has been a lifesaver when I put my tiny one for a nap or to hang out.

I will admit that I was skeptical when I saw that the bassinet was made with cardboard, but I was very impressed how the company managed to make a fully sustainable and sturdy product. I am in love with the bassinet and love that I can recycle it or even better reuse it after I don’t need it as a bassinet. My toddler constantly steals it to use as a bed for her stuffies, I have to negotiate with her to allow me to put her tiny sister in it.

Portable bassinet

This is a great bassinet to be able to move to different rooms. It was easy to put together. Ours did arrive damaged. I’m not surprised since this is made out of cardboard. That being said I wouldn’t use this as a main bassinet. I don’t know how well it will hold up. My toddler immediately wanted to sit on it and I had to keep him away from it. The design is beautiful and it feels high end. I received this bassinet as part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel

Lightweight Wonder

When I took the bassinet from the box it came in, I was a little skeptical. It comes already together, you just slightly pull the sides to expand it and drop in the mattress. Literally as described…… a piece of cardboard. That was a hurdle to get over in my mind. How can a piece of cardboard be secure and comfortable for my newborn? Well, he definitely doesn’t mind as he sleeps well inside it for naps. I mainly have utilized this bassinet as a portable baby nap station. The couch makes me nervous because while he doesn’t roll, all it takes is for one of our dogs or other kiddos to come by and put pressure on the edge and he could roll right off. I also don’t like to “baby wear” constantly. I have 3 under 3, my back is killing me 90% of the time. This bassinet is incredibly convenient to be able to move throughout the house with me as I’m completing tasks like laundry, making beds, vacuuming, doing the dishes, etc. I can lay baby down inside and he is content whether he is asleep or awake and he is SAFE. He’s low to the ground and I don’t ever feel like he’s at suffocating risk. It’s so lightweight and portable. We have a trip coming up to MX and I will be flattening the bassinet and placing it in my baggage to take with us. I think it’s going to be equally as great on vacation and easy to transport. I will say, I was definitely concerned about how sturdy it would be… but I also have a 2.5 year old and 1.5 year old who have crawled inside of it, may or may not have jumped on…

Kind Bassinet Essential

I received The Kind Bassinet from Stellar Product Testing Panel. This bassinet is a simple, sturdy, and has such a unique design. The mattress provided is light weight, and soft, the mattress cover is also very soft, all together it provides adequate comfort for baby. The Kind Bassinet has very simple instruction for assembly, it's easy fold out design has many benefits, one being it's fast to get out and use and easy to put away, therefore moving the bassinet from room to room is a breeze. The size of the Kind Bassinet is short, small, and light weight, it's compact size and fold up design makes it perfect for travel and can be easily transported in almost any vehicle. All in all the bassinet is sturdy, comfy, and simple, it makes a good place for baby to nap or lay while you need free hands to get your tasks done. I would not use the Kind Bassinet as a bed side bassinet, it is incredibly short and wouldn't perform well in the duty of bedside placement.
