The Little Life Arc 2 travel cot trebles up as a lightweight portable bed, convenient baby day prison, and outdoor sun shield, with the added bonus that it packs down into a small backpack for easy transportation. A 3-in-1 masterpiece!

We’ve spent hundreds, if not thousands, of pounds on expensive toys and gear to entertain Sonny in the nine months since he was born. But what does he love most? This crappy cardboard box, of course.
