Air mattresses are also known as airbeds and are essentially inflatable mattresses. They are a popular choice for camping, as a portable mattress, or for home use (often temporary sometimes not). They can be deflated and easily stored. Airbeds tend to be larger air mattresses that are often meant for guest use or even permanent beds. [REF Air Mattress Reviews 2010]

Some folks indicated that there were a few items they did not like about the Aerobed for Kids.

- Raised sides are not high enough if your child tosses and turns a lot. They could end up off the bed.
All-in-all this is one of the highest rated mattresses we have seen. It should be noted that the price is not particularly high for a mattress - it is well priced at Amazon (usually under 80USD) and it is possible therefore that expectations are not that high. However this mattress does pretty much what it claims to do, and customers seems to love it.
