Glideaway Introduces Mattress Designed Specifically for Children


Different Foam Density is More Responsive to a Child’s Body


March 15, 2010 - Glideaway® Sleep Products recently introduced an innovative youth mattress which raises the bar on juvenile bedding. Where most children’s beds are pint-sized versions of adult mattresses, the Jubilee is designed specifically for children. The use of a different foam density, 3 pound memory foam instead of the industry standard 5 pound, makes the Jubilee more responsive to a child’s body.


“With the Jubilee our research and development team specifically designed a mattress for children from the ground up,” said Glideaway President Carmi Fredman. “Kids are smaller than adults and need a mattress construction better geared to their size and weight. We use memory foam that is less dense and this provides more support and comfort because the child’s body conforms to the mattress. We’ve even made the mattress fun by adding a pink or blue cover. Kids are actually excited to go to bed!”


Doctor’s say that children need adequate amounts of sleep to allow their bodies time to recharge. Research shows that children who get a good night’s sleep are healthier and pay attention better in school. Available in either pink or blue velour, each Jubilee mattress comes with a matching pillow and retails for $399.


When selecting the right bed for a child, there are several important factors to consider.  Compared to mattresses designed for adults, most foam bedding for kids doesn’t address the body map of where a child lays on the bed.   Children also require a foam that is less dense in order to be more responsive to their lighter weight.  Jubilee addresses both of these concerns.


Founded in the 1920s as a furniture retailer in Illinois, Glideaway is a full-service bedding manufacturer and supplier to full-line furniture retailers, specialty sleep shops, and web-based e-tailers. Their products include a complete line-up of visco and latex mattresses, adjustable bed bases, bed frames, pillows, mattress protection products, headboards and juvenile beds. Based in St. Louis, the company employs more than 140 people in its 185,000 square-foot manufacturing, distribution, and showroom complex.
