If you have shopped for air mattresses for long, you have probably heard of AeroBed. The name recognition likely comes from the old infomercials they used to put on TV. Does it live up to the hype?
If we were talking about the adult AeroBed, I’d probably say that you could get better value elsewhere. However, the AeroBed Sleep Tight Kids Bed is pretty awesome. It is well thought out in design, and has several features we really like. It measures 50 x 25 inches, so it is perfect for most children. It also comes with a cover, so they don’t have to sleep directly on the mattress. Of course you could also use your own set of sheets.
The Aerobed includes a built in electric pump, so this little guy inflates in about 1 minute – super fast. It deflates even faster, making this the perfect fit if you are looking for a kids bed to inflate on an occasional sleepover. Another handy feature is the 4 inch raised section around the perimeter, which keeps kids from rolling off. I know our kids are usually all over the place when they sleep, so this will increase the odds that they actually stay on the mattress all night. It functions as a bed rail of sorts, as the sleeping space is noticeably lower than the outer lip.
The bed itself is constructed of quality PVC, so you get the feeling right off that it is a quality product. You are probably paying more than you would for other brands, but the Aero kids bed is truly made to last, so expect something that will stand up to how rough kids can be on an air mattress. If you go too cheap on a different product, you’ll probably have to buy several in the amount of time 1 AeroBed would last you. Kids will probably look forward to sleeping on this thing!
