The best kids blow up beds for every use

The best kids blow up beds for every use Mother&Baby

by Mother & Baby |

Whether your kid loves to have friends over for sleepovers or you’re just looking for a spare mattress - you’ll need a child’s air mattress made to fit them suitably.

Being smaller and more compact, they may be easier to blow up than an adult blow-up bed – and not to mention 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.

Are inflatable beds good for toddlers?

We wouldn’t recommend using an air bed for any child younger than 15 months, as they can be hazardous and put your child at risk. Above two years though, you should be able to use a kids blow up bed to keep any child snug at night.

Many kids blow-up beds will include bumpers or blow-up security rails, just like in any other bed, 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.

What do I use kids blow up beds for?

Kids blow up 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 blow-up beds can be more novelty than others - you can get blow up beds with unicorns and bears on! Others are more functional with comfort in mind. Take this into consideration when you're investing in your blow-up bed.

Overall though, children's blow-up beds are made with kids in mind, so some will have features that you won't use as an adult, like inflatable safety rails.
