I purchased this mattress for my 4 year old daughter when we switched her over from her toddler bed, which she really outgrew, to a twin bed.
We followed the instructions and reviews and unrolled the mattress that came vacuum sealed and rolled, 2 days before we received the bed and let it air out and expand. In reality, this took only several hours until the mattress fully expanded to it's full size.
It came nicely wrapped and rolled and there was another plastic wrap around the entire thing, very handy for when we had it lying on top of a guest bed overnight before the bed came in.
I was pleasantly surprised with this mattress overall. The bottom is a non-skid rubberish material which is really handy, the velour cover is really nice and well made, and it feels really luxurious. The mattress really doesn't weigh much and is so easy to move and turn and put sheets on.
It also feels extremely comfortable and nicely made, my daughter is ecstatic and now my 9 year old son is also asking for the same type mattress!
I highly recommend this mattress, I think I am going to send my daughter to sleep with her dad some night so I can try it myself :-)
Very very well made and nicely shipped and wrapped. Definitely an excellent buy.

I have used the genuine article; a Tempurpedic memory foam mattress for a few years and like it a lot, but wanted something less expensive for my 6yo's bed and bedroom upgrade.
For this sort of price, I don't see why anyone would buy a traditional spring mattress given the choice. I've fallen asleep on this kid's mattress, and it's very nice.

I bought two of these mattresses for my girls' new bedroom set. They love them and they are super comfy! The mattress cover that they come with is super soft, it's almost a shame to have to put sheets on them! I don't know what else to say other than my girls, who are almost 5 & 6, just love them and are very excited about their new "big girl beds"!
