Whether your kid loves to have friends over, or you’re just looking for a spare mattress for when guests stay, you're probably going to need a sleepover bed to accommodate their stay.
For kids, an air mattress generally works best. Being smaller and more compact, they're generally easier to blow up than an adult blow-up bed, plus they're easier to store! Not only are they fitting for last-minute visitors or friends, but they're also cost-effective and may be a better option than investing in a sofa bed.
What do I use kids' blow up and sleepover beds for?
Kids blow up beds, or sleepover beds, are useful for a variety of different functions. Whether you're an adventurous family who needs to take an inflatable bed on your travels, you want a spare bed for friends and family at home or are looking for something easy for sleepovers, there are loads of reasons.
Some beds can be more novelty than others - you can get ones with unicorns or teddy bears on them, while others are more functional with comfort in mind. Take this into consideration when you're investing in your sleepover bed. Some beds are made with kids in mind, so might have features that you won't use as an adult, like inflatable bed guards.
Can I use an inflatable bed for a toddler or baby?
Using an air bed for any child younger than 15 months is definitely not recommended, as they can be hazardous and put your child at risk. A nap mat or toddler travel bed would be more beneficial, however.
Above two years, you should be able to use a kids' blow-up bed to keep any child snug at night. Plus, a lot of kids' blow-up beds will include bumpers to ensure their safety, and no accidents in the middle of the night! These will stop them from rolling around and keep them safe and snug.
