Why our sleep experts loved it

The quest for the perfect mattress for kids is often fraught with challenges, from finding the right balance between comfort and support to ensuring the mattress meets safety standards. Enter the Simba Hybrid Kids Mattress, a product that promises to tick all the boxes. As a side sleeper with above-average weight, I was particularly interested in how this mattress would perform in a bunk bed setup. Here's my detailed review, covering everything from the unboxing experience to the construction, comfort, pros, and cons.

Unboxing and Setup

First Impressions

The mattress arrived in a blue box, which, while not universally appealing, didn't bother me much. The "mattress-in-a-box" concept made it incredibly easy to manoeuvre the package upstairs and into the bedroom.

The Setup Process

Upon opening the box, I found the mattress rolled tightly and wrapped in plastic. Using the cutting tool provided, I carefully sliced through the plastic, and the mattress began to expand. Within a few hours, it had reached its full size, ready for a night of restful sleep.

5 Layer Construction

The mattress boasts a 5-layer construction designed to offer a balanced combination of support, pressure relief, and comfort. These layers include:

Hypoallergenic Cover: Soft, breathable, and moisture-wicking.

Open-Cell Foam: Up to 30 times more breathable than traditional memory foam.

Titanium Aerocoil Pocket Springs: Durable and provide even body weight distribution.

HD Foam with Reinforced Edge Support: Excellent for edge support.

Foam Support Base: Provides stability to the entire mattress.


The foam used is CertiPur certified, and the mattress is 100% carbon neutral, adding an eco-friendly touch.

Comfort and Experience

As a side sleeper, I found the medium-firm tension to be quite accommodating. The foam layers allowed for enough sinkage to contour around my curves, while the springs offered the support I needed. Naturally the mattress isn't for myself but the tension and resistance offered objectively offers a good deal of support for growing children.

Motion Transfer

The minimal motion transfer was a standout feature. Even when shifting positions, the other side of the bed remained undisturbed, a crucial factor for light sleepers.

Temperature Regulation

The open-cell foam layer did an excellent job of keeping the mattress cool, a feature often overlooked in kids' mattresses but essential for quality sleep.

Final Thoughts

As a parent, one of the most invaluable assets is peace of mind, especially when it comes to your child's sleep. The Simba Hybrid Kids Mattress offers just that. Its medium-firm tension and minimal motion transfer mean that if your child wakes up during the night, they can easily settle themselves back to sleep without much fuss. This feature is not just beneficial for the child but also for parents who can often find their sleep interrupted by their child's restlessness. Knowing that your child is likely to have an uninterrupted night's sleep is comforting and, for many, worth the investment.

What sets the Simba Hybrid Kids Mattress apart from many other children's mattresses on the market are its premium features. These include a hypoallergenic cover, open-cell foam for better breathability, and titanium Aerocoil pocket springs for even weight distribution. These features are commonly found in high-end adult mattresses, making this mattress a cut above the rest in the children's category. Designed for children aged three and older, it's a mattress that your child can grow with, further enhancing its long-term investment value.

*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.


  • Turning on mattress
  • Certain materials like memory foam can make it difficult to move about on the mattress while you toss and turn. Same too for pillow tops which can create a cloud like sensation which can make manoeuvrability challenging.
  • Stability
  • Depending on the type of support layer in place can have an impact on stability, edge to edge support and roll together prevention. Pocket springs of a firmer tension will have better stability than open coil soft tension, for example.


  • Initial Odour
  • Materials in mattresses, particularly memory foam and rolled bed-in-a-box mattresses can have an initial odour, this is typically short term and reduces considerably within 24 hours.
  • Long Standing Odour
  • Certain materials inside different mattresses can produce a small odour. Typically this is short term rather than long standing but there are minor exceptions.
