I was given Zipit Bedding® in exchange for an honest review. No other compensation was received. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
When my girls found out that we were receiving Zipit Bedding® for review they were extremely excited. They had seen it on a commercial (or somewhere) and thought it looked “so cool!” Since our package arrived three weeks ago, the girls have been fighting over who’s bed get’s the new bedding. I decided that they could each use it for a week at time (and I’ll order another set for Tottie’s birthday coming up).
First and foremost, Zipit Bedding® claims to make it easier for you and your children to make their beds. This claim is NOT false! Oh my gosh, it was incredibly easy to put on the beds! My girls have bunk beds and I DREAD the days I have to change their bedding to wash their sheets. Not any more! I didn’t have to try to force the comforter around the guard rail on the top bunk…I didn’t have to fight with the sheets to make them fit…One step and I was done (without any swearing like I usually do)!
Speaking of making the bed, the Zipit Bedding is like a sleeping bag. Zip it up and your bed is made. My oldest daughter loved this concept and kept her bed neat and tidy every day she had the bedding on. The novelty wore off a bit quicker for my youngest daughter but because the comforter always stays in one place, her bed looks made even when she doesn’t completely zip it up (see the photo below).
Before I go on with some other positive thoughts, I do have to voice some criticism. Zipit Bedding is meant for thicker, regular mattresses so it fit loosely on my daughters’ thinner bunk bed mattresses. The material is a bit thin and stiff feeling. Even after a few washes I thought the material was stiff feeling. My girls didn’t seem to notice or mind. There is no top sheet which means that you have to wash the comforter more often (it did fit easily in my washing machine). The bottom doesn’t zip so it is open. My girls are small so they didn’t have an issue with it but if you have a taller child who’s feet are close to the end of the bed, their feet might get cold.
The funniest part of the whole Zipit Bedding® review? Prior to getting this bedding, my girls slept on TOP of their comforter and used their “blankies” to cover up with at night. They always complained that they were cold in the morning and we always told them to use their covers. With the Zipit Bedding® they sleep UNDER the comforter! I guess it’s “cool” to sleep in sleeping bag type bedding. Plus, Nutty said it’s easier to find her comforter because it’s always zipped in one spot.
Other things to note with Zipit Bedding®:
- Unlike I show in the photos, it is reversible. My girls just liked the same side.
- The pillow case that comes with it also zips on! Nutty thought that was cool.
- You can get bedding that glows in the dark
- It comes in both twin and full/queen size
- You can follow them on Twitter and Facebook
I’m giving away a set of Zipit Bedding®!
