Sleeping Bags Tips For Children - What To Look For

Updated on February 6, 2010

Every child wants a sleeping bag! If fact, if you ask them, they must have a sleeping bag. It is the new accessory item that must accompany them of trips, sleepovers, etc. Toddlers, school age children and teenagers alike absolutely love them. This means if you are shopping, you will not have a difficult time finding a bag because today manufacturers have increased production and now offer hundreds of styles. Most Kids (if you ask them) prefer a bag with bright colorful design instead of a plain solid color.

Whether they are used at home, at a daycare, preschool for nap time, or when children will be spending the evening at a relatives or friends house, a sleeping bag is an essential accessory. Choosing a slumber bag can be a lot of fun when done together. Especially if you allow the recipient to help in the selection and decision process. Since they are very unique with lots great designs to choose from with literally hundreds of different slumber bags for kids on the market today you will need to take some time. Do your homework and be sure to consider sizing, fabric, price when choosing the perfect item. Most daycares and preschools now require children to bring a nap mat or a sleeping bag into the classroom where it is left for daily use in a classroom setting. With a unique design or having a childs name personalized will ensure there is not a mix up in ownership.

Length of Bag - Use a tape measure to determine the height of the child. You will want to make sure it is sized appropriate for the child. Size makes a difference to school age children. They  will not be comfortable in an adult size sleeping bag (it is just too long and way to big). Toddlers will feel lost in a child size one so you might consider a nap mat instead.

Attached or Unattached Pillow - Do you want your child take there own pillow to the school? That depends upon the style of slumber bag that you choose. Of course you want your children to be relaxed when it's time for the lights to turn off, so a pillow is an important consideration. With that said, many slumber bags on the market today have a pillow that is sewn in, which is very convenient and means your child will not have to take a pillow.

Think about Fabric - Do you want bright pink hearts, purple and red swirls, peace signs, sports, truck and animal fabrics? The choices in different fabrics are incredible, including cotton, poly blends and broad cloth. In addition, the interior of the fabric might be wool, warm flannel or chenille so make sure you read the label. Most children do not like fabrics that are itchy or rough so look for softness.

What is the Cost? - A child Sleeping Bag can have a price range from under $35.00 to over $190.00. However, you can purchase a high quality, affordable sleeping bag for around $75.00. With many different manufacturers producing this product, the selection is vast. Most can also be customized to fit your child's tastes in terms of style, color, and fabric, plus many can be personalized with the child's name. Affordable and custom made can't be beat!
