SUFFOCATION HAZARD – Infants can suffocate:
• In gaps between an extra pad and the side of the bassinet

Ask a new Mom, the easiest place for a newborn to sleep is in their bassinet. So…we had a few new Moms try out the Cariboo Folding Bassinet with Baby Star insert and our Moms (and babies) were thrilled. The Cariboo Bassinet folds and moves easily, and it is lightweight for easy transport. All parents reported back that the Cariboo was easy to set up, easy to use, and easy to move—definitely 5-star worthy.

Lightweight but not made flimsy. That is what we heard time and again from our parents. And with a bassinet that is intended to be moved from room to room with a little one this is good news. Plus our Moms and Dads told us that using the Baby Star insert was a breeze – easy to put on and off – and it washed well – both for spot stains and in the washing machine.

Really – really appealing. With modern lines and classic styles all of our parents found the Cariboo Folding Bassinet and the Baby Star insert the perfect addition to their new home decor. Baby Star really steps it up a notch with the variety of styles of inserts as well. Perfect for baby boys and baby girls all of our parents were able to select a style that they just loved. Well done!

It’s lightweight, easy to fold and easy to move. Baby fits comfortable within. And again, our Moms and Dads all said that changing the insert was a breeze.

Here’s the catch. The Cariboo Folding Bassinet is not inexpensive – actually around $100 more than many of the bassinets on the market today. And the Baby Star inserts are not inexpensive either. Cost conscious new parents were wary of the fairly steep price tags. For our parents that felt money was not an object, there were no concerns. Unfortunately, with a variety of bassinets that look nice and perform as well as the Cariboo, we just couldn’t rate this bassinet much higher.

Lovely, simple, a blend of classic and modern – Cariboo and Baby Star have truly outdone themselves with the design of these great bassinets and gorgeous inserts. Baby Star’s unique patterns are what really sets these bassinets apart from the rest! Definitely original!

All of our parents thought that the Cariboo Folding Bassinet was a really wonderful place for newborn babies to rest. And all of our parents fell in love with Baby Star’s fantastic styles. The only question that really came up here was price. And when you are talking about newborns, price is a factor for almost all parents. The good news is that for those Moms and Dads who felt that price was not a concern for them – they were all about this bassinet. And for those Moms and Dads who were counting dollars – well, they said if they had it to spend, a Cariboo Folding Bassinet with Baby Star Insert would be a great way to go!
