California Beach Company vs Pack n’ Play?

Hi there,

We’ve seen a lot of ads for the California Beach Company pop-up tents. We’re a family that likes adventures, camping, parks, the outdoors and in non-COVID times, flying to see family. Has anyone purchased one? What do you like about it? What do you dislike? What sold you on it? We have a regular pack and play, so trying to figure out if it’s worth getting.

Thanks for any ideas and advice on what makes it easy to get out with a little one!

Get it!! It is so easy to pop up and take down. We have one of those ones you have to turn just right to get in the bag and it was such a headache, especially as my daughter got older and could walk away while I tried to get the tent back in. The CA beach company tent is so easy. Now, it has some weight to it but nowhere near as heavy as a pack and play. We use it for the beach and backyard. We got ours as a gift and I am very happy with it.
