Smile, it’s bedtime With The Shrunks.

If you’ve never heard of The Shrunks, well, you’ve been missing out!

They believe that bedtime should be fun and above all, SAFE. They are a Canadian company hailing from Vancouver, beautiful British Columbia, Canada.

Why “The Shrunks”?

To help kids gain confidence. Someone in the group brought up the role of a “shrink”, as in psychiatrist, a person you might likely see if you’re dealing with issues of fear. In the process of scribbling the word on the white board, the “i” was changed to a “u”, changing the word to “shrunk”. The word “shrunk” had a whole set of connotations on its own: to reduce (fear), make small (kids), etc. At The Shrunks, we believe that kids are cool. Creating stuff that makes bedtime fun and safe for them is what we love to do.


Let’s get into it!


We were super stoked to try out the Tuckaire Indoor Toddler Travel Bed for our little Mimi who is in the middle of transitioning from a crib to a big girl bed. We travel often and she is getting a bit big for the hotel cribs and she long outgrew her playpen which we donated to a young couple. We needed something that would help her gain her independence along with the peace of mind that she would be safe during the transition and while we travel.

The great thing about the Toddler Travel Bed is that it’s not JUST for traveling, it’s versatile enough to be used for sleepovers at the grandparents, camping–pretty much anywhere you go! It retails for $79.99 which is a great price considering how much use you can get out of it.

What I loved the most was that it comes with a sheet tuck feature which easily allows you to use any crib size sheet and tuck it in the sides of the mattress. This of course, makes it even more safe by knowing that the sheets stay in place while your little one sleeps. It is safe from Phthalates, BPA and Lead. It comes in a light weight carrying bag which is super convenient for on-the-go!

Want to know what is THE best?

It blows up in 30 seconds.

Yes indeedy.

If that’s not as easy as it gets, I don’t what is. The  powerful Jetaire Electric Pump is included and it also comes with a repair kit, just in case! On top of the ease of setting it up, you best believe that it is nice and soft and comfortable.

Mimi wanted to jump in as soon as she saw it and when she went in, she was silly and played around and before you knew it–she was fast asleep. The mattress (which is brown)  is super soft and the mattress is very light and durable. 


See it in ACTION!





As you can see, Michaela loved it. She watched her favorite TV shows at her grandparents while she laid in the Tuckaire Toddler Bed and slowly started falling asleep. Even when she’s not sleeping, she brings her toys or books to her little bed and watches movies. It’s become her little day bed and it’s been very useful when she sleeps over at her grand parents.

That’s what has me head over heels over The Shrunks is the multi-purpose it serves and how much use this is going to get. One of the best features is the patented side rails that the mattress has, so even if Mimi rolls around, she will be protected from falling off.


Time to Travel!

As many of you know, we will be having our renewal at the end of the year and we are going out of the country for it! We are also going out of the country again next year and out of the million baby/toddler travel things that I could be taking, the Tuckaire Indoor Travel Toddler Bed is coming with me.

It’s that awesome.

What makes it so great for traveling is the travel bag it comes in, the air pump is strong and pumps up the mattress so quickly. That big toddler sized bed fits into that small bag pictured above. That’s going in my checked luggage and it’s going to be ready for two-weeks of consecutive usage. But, before then, it’ll be in use full force at the Abuelitos and weekender trips that are coming!

  14. I love this idea!! We travel lots too and once our daughters outgrew their playpen, it was hard to know where to put them to sleep. My mother-in-law has a crib and small mattresses for them, but nobody else we visit does. This would be amazing! I'd probably get the pink sheets as I have two girls.
