Babyletto Origami Mini Crib Review
Babyletto Origami Portable Mini Crib Review
Babyletto Origami is a perfect mini crib for modern families. Due to today’s lifestyle, more and more young families live in cities, in the apartments and urban lofts, where they are limited by space. Therefore, the demand for mini cribs is increasing year by year. Although Origami is not the cheapest mini crib, it is one of the most desirable, and I can see why. The results of our Babyletto Origami mini crib review showed that it isn’t just beautiful, but also made of high-quality materials, sturdy, and reliable.
As Babyletto Origami stands on wheels, it’s classified as a portable mini crib. The portability of wooden cribs refers mainly to the moving around the house, but Babyletto Origami also folds down quite small. As such, it does fit into spacious car trunks. In theory, you can take it with you on shorter trips, but it is clear that this is not a travel crib.
With its minimalist design, Babyletto Origami fits really well into modern homes of young families. Babyletto also offers Origami in many different colors, including unique tones, such as Lagoon or Petal Pink. Isn’t that cool?

- four locking casters
- doesn’t take a lot of space
- adjustable mattress support: 2 levels

Babyletto Origami Mini Crib is a good choice for:
- urban living

- as a secondary crib for grandparent’s, daycare or caregiver’s house
- as an alternative for bassinets
- as the first crib in parents bedroom
Our Babyletto’s Origami Mini crib Review Results
How we evaluated Babyletto Origami mini crib in our Review:
We have compared Origami to other cribs of the same type, not to the all portable cribs, as that wouldn’t have sense. For instance, Origami is a foldable mini crib made from wood. It is sturdy and compact, but we shouldn’t expect it will fold up as small as travel cribs. So we need to evaluate how well it folds up in comparison with other foldable mini cribs.
What did we take into consideration?
- do casters run smoothly
- does the crib fit through standard room doors
- do locking mechanism on casters keep the crib in place
Babyletto Origami mini crib has a collapsing mechanism for easy storage and transport. Although in theory, you can transport the crib in the car, it does take a lot of car space.
We had checked:
- how easy and fast you can collapse the crib
- how easy you can set up the crib
- how much space does the folded crib occupy
In order to determine if the crib is safe, we checked the following parameters:
- if there are any safety issues
- how sturdy is the crib
- if the crib stand steady when the casters are locked
- does the crib meet all the required safety standards
Babyletto Origami mini crib meets all required ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) international and US CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) safety standards. The crib is lead and phthalate safe, and Babyletto uses only non-toxic finishes.
For evaluating the design, we had taken into consideration the following things:
- if the bed is available in sufficient colors
- the look of the whole crib
We compared the price of Babyletto Origami mini crib with other cribs of the same type and evaluated:
- if the crib’s value meets the price
- how many features you get for the price
Babyletto Origami mini crib mattress
- you can adjust the mattress to two levels
- it has a solid mattress support
- any mini crib mattress fits into the crib
- you should use the mattress up to 5″ thick
Although you get a 1″ mattress at price, we recommend using a thicker mattress in the crib. Babyletto recommends using Babyletto Pure Core mini crib mattress in the Origami crib. That is a lightweight mini crib mattress that fits perfectly into the crib. It is made from non-toxic materials and fully recyclable.
The Pure Core mattress has a multifunctional cover with a soft quilted cotton face and vinyl-free waterproof backing to protect the mattress against accidents. The cover is removable, and you can wash it in the washing machine.
The Babyletto mini-mattress is a safe choice for your baby, but as I mentioned before you can choose any mini crib mattress for the Origami crib.

Babyletto Origami is a better alternative to bassinets!
Why? Because it is more compact, lasts longer, and way more comfortable as standard bassinets.
Mini cribs are not just the choice of parents who are facing a lack of space. More and more parents decide for them before they move the baby into a standard crib. They can place the mini crib beside their bed and have the infant in the same room.
With such an arrangement, babies start learning to sleep in their own bed right away. But they are still close to their parents. There will be fewer problems with moving into their own room later.
It is also a good choice as a secondary crib, for grandma’s house, daycares or caregivers. It is small, it has wheels, and it can fold up quickly and easily.
