Description:
Foldable bed box

The invention

This travel bed/Cot for children here called Foldable bed box, is necessary for children when sleeping elsewhere than home where the child have its own bed. The Foldable bed box is a room/ bed for kids from 0, 5 - 6 years.

Very easy to open and close, slide the lock open and the foldable bed box opens, extend the net- frames and the bed is ready to use with a mattress, duvet, blanket and pillow inside.

The Foldable bed box is light and a safe environment for a child on the move, but also smart and very intuitive to use for the parents. It also has a mosquito/insect-net all around the bed.

Background of the invention.

The foldable bed box is designed with a safe hard box that surrounds the baby while it is sleeping. In addition, the design is made like a cozy cave, which will create peace for both parents and children. The lightweight textile in the hood is transparent and allows children and adults to see each other constantly.

The meaning of the bed is that the baby/child can be put to rest without the baby/child being able to get out of bed all the time, with the risk of damaging itself and thus not find peace during sleep time. The bed must therefore be able to be closed without the child feeling locked away in a closed bed.

The bed is safe environment for the child to sleep because it has a solid and strong plastic base/shells; this will prevent a hard and unlucky struck form people or animals to gain any damage to the sleeping baby/child. The rim of plastic shell limits draft to hit the baby/child when sleeping even when placed on the floor. When placed on the floor the bottom surface of the foldable bed box is fully supported and therefore there are no weight limitations for the child.

Only known technique like a foldable bed box is CN 201182315 Y (CHUNSHAN, W.) 2009.01.21, but this bed is not in one piece and molded in two materials of plastic, like the foldable bed box. The foldable bed box is also characterized by having moveable net -frames that locks into the integrated handles to prevent the child to get out of bed when needed. Differentiation from prior art

The foldable bed box differs from previous known designs by being a complete unified unit with a closed bottom frame generated by the two hard plastic shells (05) and the flexible joint (06) and the extendable frames (03) supporting the net/hood (02) that unfolds and folds with a few handling steps. These components create a closed sleeping area. This is obtained by few simple designed components that in interaction with each other provide a foldable bed box.

The mattress is made with good ventilation and the same is the bed with ventilation pattern in the bottom of the plastic shells.

If the child were to lose his/hers pacifier while sleeping, one could easily open the hood and help without having to bend over a high edge. You simply open the hood at one of the ends and quietly you can get to the child and close again without waking the child.

The bed can also be used as a cave and playground during the day. There are two doorways in both ends.

The bed is unfolded when in use, with a single click and also packed together with only one move and lock.

The bed is simple in the design, which makes it incredibly easy to operate both when assembling and unpacking in one and the same movement.

This Foldable bed box can also contain the child's duvet, pillow and sleep-teddy bear. At the same time the bed is mosquito and insect free, as the net encircles the whole bed. The design is made to suit baby's and young children and Safety is very important, that's why the design is made to be placed on the floor and the height of the bed is made low to indicate, that this is a "room" for sleeping, not standing.

So, when the child is going to sleep, at the neighbor, grandparents or elsewhere, all adults can manage the bed, the first time and easily find out the procedure how to open and close the bed.
