Key Performance Indicators KPI question mark

Our Key Performance Indicators are produced using a combination of specification-heavy algoritmic data points and user reviews. For example, a firm pocket spring support layer is more breathable and offers better back support but may prove unsuitable for side sleepers, the reverse is true for a soft-medium tension reflex foam support layer. This is one of 100+ datapoints considered when generating the below ratings.

Suitability

*Assuming average weight, suitability will vary dependant on body type, use the quiz above for a more tailored guide.
  • Back Sleepers
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • The amount of support offered from a mattress will vary depending on the firmness of the tension and the type of support layer used. Based on a person of average build.
  • Side Sleepers
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • If you sleep on your side you typically need a supportive tension that is not too firm, nor too soft. This is because your hips and shoulders need adequate sinkage.
  • Stomach Sleepers
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Stomach sleepers need a reasonable amount of tension in the base support layer to adequately offer body contouring and help prevent aches and pains. Results will vary based on your build.

    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Mattresses that feature breathable materials help promote airflow and keep you cool making for a more hygienic night's sleep.

What Makes The Little Star Extra Deep Pocket Sprung Kids Mattress Great?

324 pocket springs

A mattress with 324 pocket springs offers a number of benefits over a traditional open coil mattress. The pocket springs provide support for the body, distribute weight evenly, and allow for airflow, which helps to keep the body cool during sleep. Just like an adult size mattress, this product has better than average support that will protect your child's back and neck while they sleep.

It's breathable to help regulate your child's body temperature

Pocket spring support is particularly breathable and commonly found in good quality adult mattresses. The springs are encased in a protective fabric pocket and made from materials which promote airflow, resulting in a more hygienic nights sleep that keeps your child cool while promoting a deeper sleep.

Water repellent so accidents are easy to wipe clean

An ideal choice for little ones who still have uncertain nights, this mattress is ideal thanks to its wipe clean materials that keep your child feeling fresh, hygienic and safe from rashes.  Parents rejoice, no tough stains or soiled mattresses that have to be binned, the repellent features on show here will allow a great nights sleep for your child.

Has protected and wipe clean inners for a hygienic sleeping environment

The next best thing to a removable and washable cover is one that has wipe-clean materials like this. Accidents don't have to spoil the mattress and ruin a good night's sleep. Simply wipe clean and relax.

The cover is removable and washable at 40 degrees

A removable and washable cover gives you many years of comfort that remains safe and hygienic while helping to protect against unhappy accidents. Simply unzip and you are good to go.

Anti-allergy fabric to minimise irritation throughout the night

You and your child need the best nights sleep possible and any way to help achieve that is always appreciated. With the anti-allergy materials utilised within this mattress you can be sure of reduced irritation while you sleep.

Has a medium comfort grade

Medium mattresses are widely considered the goldilocks of support. This is because they are largely suitable for a majority of people. Side sleeper, back sleeper, front sleeper, a medium tension mattress will suit all provided you are of average build and don't suffer from more troublesome ailments.

PVC Free

Commonly a specification found in Air-Mattresses and can be toxic, as it’s quite common for PVC to cause irritation to the eyes, nose and throat, and also cause headaches and nausea. That's why this mattress has been made free of any PVC ensuring that those that do suffer from the aforementioned when confronted with PVC can still get a sound nights sleep.

Suitable for approx. 5 years+

As babies become children the cot makes way for their first "big kids" bed and with that comes a children's mattress. Suitability will vary depending on product but for this one it will suit those typically aged 5 and over. We would recommend you then look at your child's mattress every year from this point to ensure suitability continues.

Highly rated on Mumsnet

Mumsnet is a parenting forum for new-mums who offer advice and recommendations around all things baby and child. This mattress has been highly regarded by Mumsnet and its users helping to give additional consumer confidence for those purchasing.

Rest easy with our 1-year guarantee

A one year guarantee is suitable for many as the vast majority of problems that may occur often do so within that first year. At the same time, more and more retailers are beginning to offer multi-year warranty and guarantees although these often come at a slightly higher price point on average.

Little Star Pocket Sprung Kids' Mattress

Great mattress for kids. Good support & the removable cover is great if your little one has accidents. The only thing that lets it down is how difficult it is to get the removable protector on & off. You have to pull it all the way down the mattress and it is quite snug. My daughter has the older version of this mattress and it zips off all the way round. Im not sure why they changed this as the older design was much easier.

Great mattress for all but is a touch noisy

Super comfy, my 2 year old loves it and its a great size for climbing in for story time. Ive even used it myself a few nights when hes been in the big bed with one of us so perfect for the whole family! The only Downside and jt is minor, it does make a sort of crackling/inflating sound as you sneak out after lights out. It hasnt woken him up yet but its something to note for light sleepers!

5
All round great

Bought for my nearly 3 year old who is very happy. Went with this one as being young still it is aimed at the development of children's bodies. Excellent quality and comfortable. Staff in store were very helpful and accomodating, and it was quick delivery with lovely delivery drivers. Would definitely recommend. Great experience all round.

5
Outstanding service

Great service from chole at the Southampton store who took us through all the children's mattress's and gave us some sound advice without being pushy that some people can be like. Our little boy loves the mattress and is sleeping a lot longer and enjoys going to bed now - I'm sure that will wear off but great purchase and very happy

Perfect for their first big bed

The Little Star mattress is a great solution for when your child is moving to their first big bed. As its water-repellent, and has a removeable and washable cover, it means your childs mattress will stay hygienic and fresh for longer.
