While sleeping bags and zippered duvet covers have been around for a long time, other types of zipper bedding are relatively new. Here are just a few of the basic things you should know before you shop zipper bedding.
Read this before you buy Kids Zip Bedding
It is fitted. Zipper bedding is fitted so just like any other fitted bedding product, it is very important to measure your mattress. Kids ZipSheets and ZipSheets are made in standard bed sizes and fit mattresses up to 14-15 inches deep (thick). The crib size toddler bed fit mattresses up to 10″ deep. If your mattress isn’t an exact match, it will still work as long as the dimensions are close. But if it is too far off, the zipper may not fall in the proper place on the sides.
It will make your top bedding look better. A fitted zipper sheet will make any top comforter or blanket look better because the sheets underneath it fit neatly. It keeps top bedding in place while you sleep too!
It is not for use with children under the age of 1 year. Infants and babies should sleep in a crib with nothing except a fitted sheet. No top sheet, pillows, bumper, stuffed animals, blanket or anything that could pose a suffocation hazard. Fitted bedding is awesome but it should be used responsibly with age appropriate children.
It is ideal for children over the age of 1 year. The benefits of this type of bedding work well with children in the 1-12 year age range. It’s easy for them to manage and it serves the purpose of keeping them covered. With the new design however, it is good for folks of any age, not just children.
It is easy to make. You or your child can be up, out of bed, and have the bed made in literally seconds compared to a minute or more tucking a traditional bedspread and sheets. Some folks never really learn to make a bed well but these sheets help.
It’s new but not really. Zip bedding in some form has been around for years. Duvet covers zip over an insert so only the cover needs changed and of course, sleeping bags are a preferred bed for camping and sleepovers. However, zip bedding has taken on a new twist in recent years. It’s a merging of these ideas to create a product that serves families well in a home setting. It solves common problems like children waking at night cold and uncovered or beds being a mess because they are too hard to make.
It’s great for bunk beds, loft beds, or any hard to make bed. Tucking is hard enough on a regular bed but when the bed is elevated or up against a wall, it’s impossible. Kids ZipSheets and ZipSheets can be a lifesaver in these applications.
It’s easy care. The top sheet and fitted sheet are sewn together so they go on and come off as one piece. All Kids ZipSheets and ZipSheets are machine washable and safe to tumble dry.
It makes tucking a thing of the past. You won’t need to do any more tucking as the sheets are sewn together and joined with zippers. You put the sheets on just like a fitted sheet and that’s it.
It comes in rich vibrant colors and neutral colors. The signature colors for this brand are orange, fuchsia pink, bright blue and aqua. All rich, beautiful, kid friendly colors. But we have introduced neutral grey, white, and sand to appeal to the rebranded ZipSheets which are for everyone.
It is adaptable to the sleepers’ preference. If you like a tucked in feeling, leave them zipped up on both sides. If you want tucked in a little, leave one side zipped or leave them zipped halfway. If you don’t want zipped in, leave them unzipped. The zipper sheets stay in place even if they aren’t zipped because they are sewn together at the foot end of the bed.
It makes your bed look neat and tidy. Fitted bedding of any kind shows off a beautiful bed frame as it only covers the mattress. It doesn’t drape over the bed frame.
It won’t lock you in to a print. If you choose our ZipSheets, you can use whatever comforter you want on top but still enjoy the benefits of zip bedding. The all in one zipper comforters come in beautiful prints but they come with a hefty price tag and you are limited to that print.
It is reasonably priced. Zipper sheets are more reasonably priced than zipper comforters and you have more flexibility with them. You have the benefits of zipper bedding but you are not limited to the print or design of a comforter.
So are you ready to buy Zip Bedding now?
Can I use it as a sheet? I choose this product is because I would like to wash the top sheet regularly, and don’t need to tuck sheet in the mattress every time I wash the sheet.
Yes, it it a sheet set. The top sheet is sewn to the fitted sheet so it’s like one piece. You would have to remove both to launder and then put it back on like a fitted sheet. But there is no need to tuck the top sheet. It’s sewn to the fitted sheet at the foot end and joined with zippers up each side. You can leave it zipped on not but that eliminates the need to tuck the top sheet.
