Celebrating Summer Travel with Win It Wednesday

Summer is here! Okay, technically, the official start of summer is June 22, but with warmer weather (even hot, depending on where you are!), school out and pools officially open, we’re already in the summer spirit. To kick off what we know will be a terrific summer 2013, we’re excited to present a fun Win It Wednesday giveaway. Since summer is the season of travel—vacation, trips to the lake, visiting friends and grandparents—we’re giving away a Travel Lite™ Crib in the gender-neutral Fenwick fashion.

Travel Lite Crib features a removable infant bassinet with quilted mattress pad providing baby a cozy resting spot both at home and away. Best of all, it’s 20% smaller than traditional playards, making traveling with the Travel Lite crib a snap. Weighing less than 20 lbs, the Travel Lite crib easily folds with the push of a button and it comes with a convenient carrying bag (simple to store or pack in the car!). Even though it’s small, it still has lots of great “extra” features—like the canopy to shield your baby from bright light, airy mesh sides for lots of ventilation and two soft toys that provide visual interest for your curious little one. Whether a trip to the beach or a visit with Grandma is in your future this summer, the Travel Lite Crib is the must-have accessory for families on the go.

Enter to win by leaving a comment below, telling us the first place you’d travel with your brand new Travel Lite Crib! You have until 10 a.m. EST tomorrow, and we will announce a winner later on Thursday. Good luck!

    I would love to win this!!! We have so many family trips planned this year with a new baby and all!!! :)

    Oh! We’d go for a weekend in Corpus Christi, then to visit family in Mississippi… I’m hoping to take a few weeks this summer and drive from Houston to Canada, with a few stops in between – this would be wonderful!

    We are expecting our first child November 15th and the first place we will be traveling to is our family thanksgiving. This would be perfect to set up at my parents house for the holidays!

    I would give it to my daughter so she could come here for a visit. I have a playpen but the sides won’t stay up anymore so it’s not safe for the baby to be in it. I could go buy one but I’m disabled and can’t go shopping. I soooo want them to come and stay for at least a weekend. They live 4 hrs away so they wait for us to come see them. If I had the Travel Lite Crib I know they would come here ! Thank you so much for the chance to win !!

    We would go to grandma’s house… Both of them!!

    I would love to win this for a friend of mine. She just had a baby boy yesterday. I know she is planning a trip to visit her grandparents and this would really come in handy.

    I love this, this would be great for my grandson when he travels !

  9. Donna K June 6, 2013 at 12:06 am #

    I would visit my parents.

  10. Beth June 6, 2013 at 12:11 am #

    I would love this for my new little one. So many trips and I will have to borrow items.

  11. Terri Ingham-Bollin June 6, 2013 at 12:12 am #

    We are going to NY for Christmas and that would be the first of many places we could use it.

  12. jennifer chadwick June 6, 2013 at 12:23 am #

    To grandma’s

  13. Danielle preston June 6, 2013 at 12:30 am #

    I have a 7 year old and 10 month old now and just found out I’m expecting #3. We go to camp every summer and this would come in super handy!

  14. Greta June 6, 2013 at 12:51 am #

    To visit Grandma for sure.

  15. Alyssa H June 6, 2013 at 1:03 am #

    I would bring this with us to Disney. It would give us a little more space in the room and it would be easier to fly with. When you travel with 5 kids, those features make life a lot easier!

  16. christine June 6, 2013 at 1:18 am #

    i would love to use this for my daycare it is very beautiful and would be great for the baby

  17. Michelle June 6, 2013 at 1:25 am #

    We are planning on taking a trip to Boston. It wasnthebfirstbplace my husband and I traveled together and we want to take our daughter to see the ducklings in Boston Commons.

  18. Aura June 6, 2013 at 1:30 am #

    trips to grandma and on our summer roadtrips

  19. Darlene Owen June 6, 2013 at 1:42 am #

    I would take it with us when we go camping.

  20. Christen Peiffer June 6, 2013 at 1:50 am #

    I live about an hour and a half from mine and my husbands family and I am due in 19 days and cant wait to show our little baby girl off to all our family, so first stop would be Grand ma’s house, and this item would be a perfect set-up for taking our baby to visit our family on the weekends!

  21. shaylene June 6, 2013 at 2:03 am #

    A trip to the lake for the day to enjoy the nice sun.

  22. Lisa Angstadt Colon June 6, 2013 at 2:05 am #

    This is perfect! I have a 10 WK old and we are always going to my mothers and this would be perfect yo travel with and have by the pool

  23. Mandi June 6, 2013 at 2:18 am #

    I think we might actually be able to figure out camping if we had one of these travel cribs.

  24. Rita Spratlen June 6, 2013 at 2:24 am #

    I would go to many motels on a small trip down the coast!

  25. Amanda Cecil June 6, 2013 at 2:48 am #

    We would go to Cali to visit my Dad and my Grandma. We live in Ohio and going to Cali only happens once a year if that. I wish my girls could see their grandpa and great grandma more often!!

  26. Kelly Dennison June 6, 2013 at 2:49 am #

    I would love love love this to travel to the beach with in a few weeks!! Our precious baby boy would be so safe and snugly sleeping in this! Love that its smaller- perfect for a family who loves to travel like we do!!

  27. Damaris Curtis June 6, 2013 at 3:10 am #

    The first place I would go with this is our family cabin in New Hampshire, then off the Connecticut to visit family.

  28. Maria Gilbert June 6, 2013 at 3:25 am #

    I am visiting my family on the East Coast in 2 months, and this would be perfect!!

  29. Kani June 6, 2013 at 3:54 am #

    We are expecting our first on the 24th of June and I think this would be great to go visit the OBX with!
    And because its so small and light I could even set it up myself without help since I’m such a tiny person lol … Baby’s first visit to the ocean :)

  30. Amanda D Hutchinson June 6, 2013 at 5:01 am #

    This would be great for my baby! She is 6 weeks old and we have no family around us. We would take it to visit family that live far away! This would make packing way easier since its so compact.

  31. Elizabeth Y. Ogimachi - Dube June 6, 2013 at 6:19 am #

    The first place I would travel to that would require me to take the crib would be to Exeter NH.

  32. Nikki June 6, 2013 at 6:30 am #

    We have to do a lot of traveling this summer for my older childrens soccer tournaments and a Travel Lite looks small enough to go from field to field for my 2 moth old daughter. It would also be nice not to rely on the hotel for a crib for her.

  33. Rhonda G June 6, 2013 at 9:35 am #

    This would be great for my youngest granddaughter to sleep in at Nana’s house ;)

  34. Ami June 6, 2013 at 11:20 am #

    We love all of the graco products! Would love to add this to our collection!

  35. Cynthia K June 6, 2013 at 12:08 pm #

    FLORIDA! It will be our first vacation ever! We are visiting my in-laws in Port St. Lucie with our six kids. They will be able to meet their first grandson from our family. Then we are going to camp at one of the free campsites with the kids somewhere. So would be very useful as not to put the baby (Kody) on the ground in a sleeping bag.

  36. Jaclyn Crawford June 6, 2013 at 12:30 pm #

    We would bring our new baby, due 6/24, to meet his family in Louisiana. With 3 other children this would be amazing for saving on packing space!

  37. Stephanie Neeley June 6, 2013 at 3:19 pm #

    My sisters have loved their graco pack n plays and I know my little girl would too. This would be especially helpful with all the traveling we do!

  38. Heather June 6, 2013 at 3:27 pm #

    I would travel to Texas to visit my family! I only get to see them once a year at best and I would love to take my brand new baby to meet his aunts, uncles, and grandparents!

  39. roberta ayres June 6, 2013 at 6:12 pm #

    I would love to win! We would probably take it to Grandma’s house first!

  40. Gretchen June 12, 2013 at 3:40 pm #

    I would love to have this for my grandaughter to come and visit!

  41. Savannah miller June 27, 2013 at 7:16 pm #

  42. nour June 29, 2013 at 10:01 pm #


    We love love to win this travel bed for our son 4 months.
    We will need it for our travel to Algeria to visit our family.
    We live in Vancouver and with the expensive air plane tickets we can make it without you.
    thanks for your help

    Best regards

  43. Darlani Toa July 4, 2013 at 5:06 am #
