✅ 3 reasons to buy

+ The Tasman Essentials Palermo Cot is a simple but very affordable cot.
+ Most parents found the cot fairly easy to assemble.
+ While the cot doesn’t come with many additional features other than the basics, it is very light and easy to move around if needed.
+ The cot uses standard size mattresses which make it easy to find a mattress and the right fitted sheets.

❌ 3 reasons NOT to buy

– Though the cot price is very affordable, a mattress is a separate purchase.
– The timber is a lower grade of timber and isn’t as solidly built as some higher-end cots.
– The cot doesn’t have a dropside nor can it convert to a toddler bed.

Bottom line:

The Tasman Essentials Palermo cot is a budget-oriented cot that does the job and no more. Its simple design makes it easy to assemble and also provides structural integrity, meaning it is less likely to fall apart. For the price, it is a good option if you want to save money on a no-frills cot.
