Fun Kid's Sleeping Bags and Mats
Many options are available depending on your child's sleeping bag needs.
If you are looking for a technical sleeping bag for outdoor use on camping trips where the child will be carrying the bag on a backpack or overnight you will be looking for a different product then if you only want a sleeping bag for in house sleep overs or for back yard tent camping.
When thinking about a sleeping bag for a child who needs the bag for overnight camping trips the two main considerations will be weight and temperature ratings. Sleeping bags come in a variety of sizes and weights. The weight is primarily a function of the kind of fill used in the sleeping bag. No matter what kind of fill you choose (polyester or down) you will need to be conscious of the weight of the bag. A child carrying a pack should carry no more than 30% of their weight so a small light sleeping bag is important. Typically a child's mummy bag will be the best option for small size and light weight to carry on an overnight trip. These kinds of bags are available from a variety of online vendors like REI and Eddie Bauer.
If you are looking for a child sleeping bag for overnights at a friends house for for back yard camping you will not need to be as concerned about weight and size. If this is the case then look for a big soft comfortable bag which can be enjoyed to the max. Some ideas are listed below.
