The transition from crib to first bed is a big step in your toddler’s life, and Purple is here to help. We’ve created a mattress that’s designed specifically for younger kids while still providing the unique support of the Purple Grid™ for your kid’s growing body.
Same Awesomeness of the Grid
Your kid can experience the same amazing benefits of the Purple Grid™ that is both soft and supportive, all at once.
Designed for Kids
The softer, lighter mattress design gives kids up to 14 years old maximum comfort. It’s perfect for bunk/loft beds and includes a machine washable cover.
Safe and Ultra Durable
Yes, your kid will sleep great, but you can also rest easy knowing that it's both Clean Air GOLD and CertiPUR-US certified, so you can have peace of mind that your child is safely snoozing.
*Be sure to check bed frame manufacturer specifications
Made in the USA
What Sweet Dreams Are Made of
We’ve created a mattress that’s optimized for kids while maintaining the same durability and quality that Purple is known for. The end result is a mattress that is light, comfy, and affordable.
2" Purple Grid™
Balanced No Pressure Support™ designed to instantly adapt under their pressure points while supporting the rest of their body.
Dual-Layered Comfort Foam
Responsive comfort layer that’s designed to be a softer supportive layer than our other mattresses to better cradle smaller bodies weighing less than 115 pounds.
Machine Washable Cover
Machine washable cover that delivers tons of stretch to help maximize the flexing properties of the Purple Grid. The breathable design also promotes airflow so they sleep comfortably cool.
Only the Purple Grid
The Grid is both soft and supportive and will give your kid the same No Pressure Support™ demonstrated in our egg drop video!
No matter their sleep style, The Grid adapts and responds to their movement.
Our temperature-neutral gel and 1,000+ air channels keep your kid comfortably cool all night long.
Simple answer: the Purple Grid™. Specially engineered to softly cradle your hips and shoulders while totally supporting your back’s natural shape, Purple’s patented technology has been used and tested rigorously within medical and consumer applications for over 25 years. In that time, the inventors of Purple have researched the different mattress materials to know what pairs best with their life-changing technology. Here’s what they found: * Memory foam doesn't consistently give you the support you need throughout the night and generally sleeps hot. * Traditional spring mattresses don’t relieve pressure and cause a great deal of motion transfer, not to mention the squeaking. * The ultra-durable Purple Grid technology cradles your hips and shoulders while giving you the support your body needs and the comfort you crave. Pair it with dynamic, specially-designed fabric-encased coils, and you get complete, immersive comfort all night, every night.
What’s the difference between the Purple Mattress and Purple Kid Mattress?
The Purple® Kid Mattress was designed for youth up to ages 13 and 14 who weigh approx. 115 lbs. The dual-layered comfort foam is also designed to be softer and optimized to give children of that size the best support and comfort that they can get. The Purple® Mattress includes 2.25" more inches of comfort technology and is ideal for children that weigh over 115 lbs.
Does it contain latex?
No, it does not! The Purple Kid Mattress doesn't contain memory foam nor latex.
Does the Kid Mattress contain any toxins?
No. The Purple mattress is non-toxic and is certified by Clean-Air Gold and uses CertiPUR-US certified foam.
How do I return the mattress for a full refund?
Because The Purple Grid™ supports the natural alignment of your body unlike any other mattress, it can take some time for your child to completely adjust to their new mattress. You can rest easy with our 100-night trial which allows for stress-free returns if your child doesn’t like the Kid Mattress. Similar to when you start fixing poor posture, it may feel odd or even uncomfortable at first, so we highly recommend they sleep on it for at least 21 nights to give their body a chance to adjust before you can return it for a full refund. **Helpful hint: Stretchy Purple® Kids Sheets and Kids Mattress Protector will help them feel the full comfort of The Purple Grid.
What type of mattress is best for kids?
The best mattress for kids is a twin mattress. Twin size mattresses can fit easily in a child’s room, and they’re perfect for bunk beds, too. A good mattress for kids should be safe, durable, and comfortable. This will help them sleep through the night (and keep them from hopping into bed with you at 3 a.m.).
The Purple Kids Mattress is specially designed for children. It’s a twin sized mattress that features the Purple Grid for superior comfort and adaptive support. Like all Purple Mattresses, the Kid Mattress includes a 10-year warranty and a 100-night mattress trial to ensure your complete satisfaction.
How to protect a mattress from kids?
The best way to protect a mattress from kids is to use a twin-sized mattress protector. A mattress protector is a cover that you put over your mattress to protect it from spills, allergens, body oil and sweat, and more.
It’s always a good idea to use a mattress protector, adults included. But for a kid’s mattress, it’s essential. Kids’ mattresses are subject to accidents, sticky fingers, dirty feet, drool, crumbs, and more. Luckily, Purple makes a mattress protector that can help with these problems. The Purple mattress protector is water and stain-resistant, offering 5-sided dual protection from dirt, grime, and accidents. It’s also dust mite and dander-resistant.

How firm should a mattress be for kids?
The right mattress firmness typically depends on your child’s size and age. Experts say that children under the age of 2 should sleep on a firm mattress. This is because soft bedding can be dangerous for babies. If you have an infant or young toddler, shop for a toddler bed or a crib mattress. These mattresses are made specifically for the youngest sleepers and many are designed with safety in mind.
Past the age of 2, the right mattress firmness for your child is primarily a matter of personal preference. If they’re a stomach sleeper or back sleeper, they’ll probably prefer a firm mattress. If they sleep on their side, they might like a slightly softer mattress.
The Purple kids mattress provides adaptive firmness thanks to the Hyper-Elastic Polymer material of the Purple Grid. This makes for blissful sleep at any age, but can be especially beneficial for kids. Children’s bodies change rapidly over the course of a decade, and their sleep style will likely change too. With a Purple mattress, children can get the same no-pressure support and zero-gravity comfort from toddler to teen.
Can a kids mattress work with bunk beds?
Yes, absolutely. The Purple kids mattress fits all standard twin size bed frames, including twin bunk beds. Weighing just 39 lbs, the Purple Kids Mattress is easy to lift onto the top bunk. It’s also ideal for use with trundle bed frames.
What size mattress is right for a child?
The right mattress size for a child is a twin size mattress. Other mattress sizes are only recommended for kids if multiple children are sharing the same bed.
The best twin mattress for kids is the Purple kids mattress. This mattress is made with a 2-inch layer of the Purple Grid, Purple’s unique Hyper-Elastic Polymer comfort layer that provides luxurious comfort and adaptive support.
The Purple kids mattress has benefits for parents, too. Its hypoallergenic materials keep mites, mold, and allergens far away from your little sleeper. The mattress is also durable and includes a 10-year warranty.
Is a toddler bed the same as a twin?
No, toddler beds are different from twin beds. Toddler mattresses are much smaller than twins. In fact, toddler mattresses are usually the same size as crib mattresses. Let’s look at the different mattress dimensions:
Crib: 28 X 52 inches
Toddler: 28 X 52 inches
Twin: 38 X 75 inches
If you’re looking for a kids bed for a child at least 3 years old, it’s time to shop for a twin size. Twin beds and kids beds often share the same dimensions, but sometimes a kids bed will be a bit slimmer than a standard twin. This is the case with the Purple kids mattress. At 7 inches thick, it fits any twin size bed frame but is better suited to accommodate smaller bodies. It also makes the bed much more affordable for parents without sacrificing comfort and durability.
What age can a child sleep on the Purple kids mattress?
The Purple Kid Mattress was designed for youth up to age 14 who weigh approximately 115 lbs. The Purple mattress is not intended for use by children under the age of 3. If you’re looking for a bed for your infant or young toddler, consider a crib or toddler mattress.
It can be normal for a child to use a toddler mattress until they are 3-5 years old. After that point, they should transition to a twin mattress like the Purple kids bed mattress. Every child is different, and as a parent, you will know when your child is ready to make the change.
