Editor's Notes

May 07, 2020:

Kids can be rambunctious, so durability remains a significant concern in this category, with some models like the Bestway Dream Glimmers leaving the list, as it's a fun option, but one that ultimately isn't going to last very long. And when compared to models like the Coleman EasyStay with its 300-pound capacity or the AeroBed 40010 with its reinforced seams, there are clearly models on the market that are built to last.

Parents should try to keep in mind exactly where and how they intend to use their new air mattress, as well. While parents that host the rare sleepover and want something for an emergency could get by with a cheaper option that's limited to indoor use, frequent hosts or regular campers should look for something a little sturdier, like the Emma + Ollie Inflatable or that Coleman mentioned above. And for a truly portable experience, there's the KareCaddy Electric, which actually has its pump built into the mattress itself, which is ideal if you're a hurried packer who might forget the pump otherwise.
