7 Kids Zipper Bedding Myths – Busted!

Common Misconceptions about Kids Zipper Bedding

Zipper Bedding Myths

  1. Myth – It’s confining. Some types may be but our Kids Zip Sheets are only sewn together at the lower portion of the bed. An area is left open for ventilation and then zippers run the rest of the way up on each side. You can be totally zipped in if desired but you can also leave both sides unzipped. The top sheet stays in place so it’s easy to keep covered without that zipped up feeling.
  2. Myth – It’s hot. I have heard some folks say that the zippered bedding is hot. The “all in one” sets (comforter & sheets combined) that contain some polyester may be warm. Our sheets are 100% cotton and in warmer climates or summer time, they are enough used alone. In the winter, you can throw on any top blanket or comforter made of any fabric but comfortable cotton will be against your skin. We also have an area on each side that is left unsown for ventilation making it easy to stick your foot out.
  3. Myth – My child can’t get to the bathroom in time. Most children needing to make quick trips to the bathroom are young and not too tall. Our sheets are only attached at the bottom of the bed so at the most, the child’s feet would be tucked in. Leave the zippered side open and it’s quick to get out.
  4. Myth – It’s line dry only. This is partially true as our first batch of flannel sheets are line dry only. All other stock may be safely dried in a machine dryer.
  5. Myth – They are cheaply made. Not our sheets! We are constantly maintaining the quality of our Kids Zip Sheets. They are made of 250 TC cotton, sewn with precision, and inspected before we ever receive them. As a team, we constantly look for ways to improve them. If you do get a defective one, we promptly replace it.
  6. Myth – They aren’t safe. Our sheets are tested in a third party CSPC approved lab and they meet all safety standards required for products of their kind. We wouldn’t sell them otherwise. So you can rest assured that Kids Zip Sheets contain no lead or phthalate in the zippers and they pass the small parts testing.
  7. Myth – The crib size are for babies. ABSOLUTELY NOT! The crib sets are for crib size mattresses to be used by children ages 2 – 12. Babies should not have a top sheet or a pocket to scrunch down in. Even though our crib sheets can be short sheeted, that is to accommodate toddlers and can be adjusted as your child grows.

14 Things to Know About Zip Bedding

Read this before buying Kids Zip Bedding

      1. It is fitted. As with any fitted bedding product, always measure your mattress to make sure it will fit properly. Kids Zip Sheets fit standard size beds with mattresses up to 14″ thick. The depth of the mattress will determine how tightly they will fit on the mattress. There is still ample room with the top sheet.
      2. It will make your top bedding look better. A fitted zipper sheet will make a top comforter or blanket look better because the sheets underneath fit neatly. It keeps top bedding in place as you sleep too!
      3. It is not for use in children under the age of 2. Infants and babies should sleep in a crib with nothing but 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 and with the appropriate age children.
      4. It is ideal for children over the age of 2 and up to age 12. The benefits of this type bedding work well with children in this age group. It’s easy for them to manage and it serves a purpose of keeping them covered. There is enough extra sheet on the top that adults or older children can use these too but they are really intended for this age group.
      5. It is EASY to make. Your child can be up, out of bed and 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.
      6. 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 the 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 and solves common problems like children waking at night because they are cold or beds being a mess because they are too hard to make.
      7. 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 Zip Sheets can be a lifesaver.
      8. 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 Zip Sheets are machine washable and now machine dryable too!
      9.  It makes tucking a thing of the past.  You won’t need to do any more tucking as the sheets are sewn together. You put on the sheets once as you would put on a fitted sheet and you are done until it’s time to take them off to wash.
      10. 10. It comes in rich, vibrant colors. The gorgeous colors look good enough to use alone. There is a solid color that will work with any other decor – if not, choose white as it goes with everything.
      11. It is adaptable to your child. If you have a child who likes the tucked in feeling, zip the sheets up on both sides. If you have a child who wants to be tucked in but likes a little more freedom, leave them unzipped. The zipper sheets stay in place on the bed even if they aren’t zipped up. For bunk & loft beds, leave the wall side zipped up and the front side open and they work just like inseparable attached bunk bed sheets.
      12. It makes your bed will look neat and tidy. That’s a given as zip bedding will make your bed look like the mattress is just covered. It will show off your bed frame beautifully.
      13. It won’t lock you in to a print. You can always use whatever comforter or blanket you want on top of the sheets or use them alone. Used alone, they can be accessorized with fancy toss pillows.
      14. It is reasonably priced.  Zipper sheets are more reasonably priced than zipper comforters and you have more flexibility with them. You have the benefit of zip bedding but are not limited with the print or design of a comforter.
