If your kid sleeps hot or you just want them to have the best kid mattress, check out Purple’s new kid’s collection. It’s a lighter, slimmer mattress with a foam perimeter around the comfort grid center (which makes it lighter).
My daughter has a Purple original twin size mattress and she loves it but it could be just a little softer for her. She also has a Sleep Ovation pillow which she loves because it’s not too tall for a little head.
Now there are new options for kids, younger fans as well as growing teens to get good sleep. It’s funny how we buy our kids the cheapest mattress. No one thinks about it. But if they had a better mattress, they’d feel and know the difference right away. How do I know? Being a mattress reviewer, I’ve given mattresses to several kids after I’m done reviewing them. And they tell me that it makes such a huge difference from what they used to sleep on.
The kid mattress only comes in twin size (so technically it could be used for a lighter weight (around 115 lbs or less) adult too.

Differences Between the Kid’s and Adult Size Purple Mattress
The kid’s mattress is priced lower, not as thick as the original Purple mattress and has new colors.
Size and Thickness
The kid’s mattress only comes in twin. The size is different though. It’s a shorter twin. Dimensions are 38” x 75” and it’s 7 inches thick. The original is 38” x 75” and 9.25” thick. The shorter profile makes it best for bunk beds or sofa beds.
37 lbs compared to around 70 lbs for the original Purple twin size mattress.
Right now the regular twin is $574 and the kid size twin is $474. Check prices.
Cover is 64% Polyester, 35% Cooling PE, 1% Spandex
Surrounded by 1.8 lb density foam side/head/foot rails, around the perimeter of the mattress (which appears to be a lot more than the original has).
2.5” 1.8 lb density soft transition foam
2.5” 1.8 lb density medium support foam
Kid’s Purple Pillow Compared to Original Purple Pillow
The kid version of the Purple pillow is actually a little thicker than the original. It’s 18” x 13” and 3.25” thick. The price is $69 and it weighs 5 lbs. – less than half of the original Purple pillow. Otherwise it’s the same.
The original Purple pillow is 24″ x 16″ and 3″ thick and costs $109. It weighs 11.7 lbs.
You get a 100 night sleep trial and a 1 year warranty.
Kid’s Purple Sheets and Mattress Protector
Interestingly, for a 7 inch sheet, the kid’s version is 15″ thick (for a 7″ mattress). Not sure why. Same with the mattress protector which isn’t specifically for kids – it’s the same as for the other Purple mattresses. I love the Purple mattress protector but I would buy a low profile mattress protector like this one that’s for 6-8″ deep mattresses. Same with the sheets, they’re stretchy and move with the mattress. However, with less grid it may not be as much of an issue. Here are low profile sheets that fit 6-9″ deep mattresses.
Flat Sheet 98″ x 70″
Fitted Sheet 75″ x 38″ x 15″
Pillowcase 31″ x 20″
Price is $99 at the time of writing. Check current price.
Warranty is 1 year on the sheets, 10 years on the mattress protector.
The Purple kid’s mattress fits on the Purple foundation. Sleep trial is 100 days and there’s a 10 year warranty on all mattresses.
