Folding up Cosco play yard

I have the cosco funsport play yard (05010TCT), and after using it once, I can't seem to get it folded back up for storage, and the instruction book is nowhere to be found after the Thanksgiving chaos! I can get all the sides to fold, but can't get it folded small enough to put back in the box. I do not recommend this play yard to anyone (Cosco Juvenile Play Yard ) its the worst when your trying to pack it up. We bought this so when we travel we have it on hand. Well..thank god we were traveling in our RV because when it came time to pack it up, we couldnt get it to fold and had to store it under the RV carriage half folded. Very frustrating instead of convenient.

My wife and I have the same model for visits by our granddaughter. She was having the same trouble as were you and, like you, we did not have instructions.

I'm happy to share with you what I found to close the model up for storage. It may not be the same as what the manufacturer envisioned but it worked for us.

-- With the pad removed from the inside of the Pack n Play, pull up on the red handle so as to loosen the legs;

-- Next, you will find there is a big button in the middle of each of the long sides of the Pack n Play. Start with either long side. You will have to press very hard on either side of that button; I found it helpful to use both hands, one pressing on the outside of the playpen, the other hand pressing on the inside of the playpen. Pressing these together will loosen the long support arm at the open top of the Pack n Play.

-- Do the same for the opposite long side.

-- You will also do the same, one button, one side at a time, for each of the two short sides of the Pack n Play.

-- Now pull up on the red handle in the middle, and guide the four corners so they meet and close.

-- Cover.

I found the buttons may not have fully allowed the support arms to collapse, thus blocking the Pack n Play from folding down completely. If so, try pressing the button again (both the outside and the inside at the same time).

Hope this helps!

Are there different types of toddler beds or a standard type in different styles?


There are quite a few varying types of toddler beds in the market. The first kind I will mention is a convertible crib. The great thing about a convertible crib is that it will last much longer. Some parents also find that a convertible crib eases the transition phase. Next there is the "captain bed" also known as a storage bed. This bed has built-in compartments everywhere - under the bed frame, in the footboards, even in the headboards. There are other types of toddler beds such as loft toddler beds, futon toddler beds, and platform toddler beds; however I think they are less popular and ultimately less safe for your toddler.
