Eco Kids Mattress Review
The Eco Kids Mattress is Australian made and is simply an outstanding kids mattress. From our perspective, it ranks as the premier kids mattress on the Australian market in 2021.
This mattress is the end result of several years of product research and development. Fittingly, it has been designed by an Aussie family who are also highly experienced in mattress manufacturing. The Eco Kids Mattress has been designed with children’s growing bodies in mind, but also has been made without any harmful chemicals.
Purchase and delivery
The Eco Kids Mattress can be conveniently ordered online through the Eco Kids website. Delivery is free and the mattress can be delivered Australia wide (see delivery times below). You can see this mattress in ‘real life’ in our video review here:
The Eco Kids Mattress presents beautifully, and has a distinct ‘natural’ vibe. The top cover of the mattress contains natural bamboo and cotton fibres that form a breathable, hypoallergenic sleeping surface.
Comfort and support
This top cover sits over a combination of premium quality foams that are well certified as eco-friendly and non-toxic. This comfort layer absorbs body weight very nicely, and provides smooth pressure relief in all sleeping positions.
Based on our testing, our team rated it as a ‘medium-firm’ feel, which is our recommended firmness level for most children. More specifically, we assigned this mattress as a 7.5 / 10 firmness (with 10 being the firmest).
Please note that our firmness ratings are just a guide and they do not necessarily relate to comfort. Furthermore, our firmness ratings are assigned based on Bedbuyer’s testing process and these may differ from firmness ratings given by individual companies.
The Eco Kids Mattress uses a specially designed ‘Chiro Flex ES’ spring system. This support structure offers excellent spinal support and is also beautifully responsive to movement. This means that it will be easy for your kids to move around in during sleep.
Please note that our responsiveness scales are just a guide and preferred responsiveness levels will vary between individuals. It’s worth noting also that innerspring mattresses are generally more responsive than foam mattresses.
The finer details
One of the most impressive features of this mattress is its edge support, which is more solid than any other kids mattress that we have tested. This will not only prevent your child from rolling off the side, but it also forms a stable surface for you and kids to sit on for bedtime activities such as reading.
It’s worth noting that the Eco Kids Mattress has a height of 21 cm, which will suit any standard bed base, but also should be compatible with most bunk beds.
In terms of age, the Eco Kids Mattress is suitable for children from age 2, all the way up to teenagers and young adults. It can accomodate up to 120kgs, so it should be adequate for kids of all sizes.
One of the most impressive features of this mattress is its edge support.
The Eco Kids Mattress is well backed with a 100 night trial period and an impressive 10 year warranty. This gives you all the ‘peace of mind’ that you could need, and is also a strong indication of Eco Kids’ confidence in the quality and durability of its product.
The Eco Kids Mattress is available in 4 sizes (double, king single, long single and single size) so it should accommodate all (kids) sleeping situations. Here are Australia’s standard bed (mattress) sizes in 2021.
The Eco Kids Mattress is a truly outstanding product that sets the standard in the kids mattress market in 2021. It is Australian made, is well-certified as non-toxic, and comes with free delivery (Australia wide).

Specifications – Eco Kids Mattress
Mattress height: 21 cm
Specifically designed to help children grow providing the best in support and comfort while utilising environmentally friendly, natural materials so you can feel confident your child is having a healthy and restorative sleep.
The Eco Kids mattress has a natural bamboo fabric that is soft to touch but extremely durable. The natural properties of the bamboo fabric make it anti-microbial and extremely breathable keeping the sleep surface fresh & healthy.
A layer of 100% Natural Cotton Fibre is gently quilted under the Bamboo fabric which is anti-allergy and a natural insulator providing maximum breathability.
Let’s face it, as much as we tell them not to, kids will jump on their mattress so to add strength to the natural surface materials we have engineered in, a strong, super resilient layer of HygroFlex foam. HygroFlex by Joyce foam is made using Australian first Variable Pressure Foaming Technology (VPF) which is the most environmentally friendly foam making process in the world and is certified by Good Environmental Choice Australia (GECA) making it better for the environment as it meets world class environmental standards.
Kids bodies are growing physically at a rapid rate, especially throughout the night so their mattress needs to provide them the right comfort to help them stay asleep. Deep yet gentle comfort has been built in with a resilient layer of HD Dunlop foam which is GECA certified and approved by National Asthma Council’s Sensitive Choice program providing better choice for kids with asthma or allergies.
The support system of the Eco Kids mattress is our exclusive Chiro Flex ES spring featuring Maxi-Boost edge support.
Made with refined, triple heat treated wire the Chiro Flex ES spring system has a higher coil count and 60% stronger than standard Bonnell springs found in most kids mattresses. The Chiro Flex ES spring provides perfect balanced support to kids of all sizes and weights allowing their bodies to develop correctly and naturally.
A lot of the time a kids mattress is not just used for sleep, it also serves as a kids play area as well as a seat for adults during story time so with this in mind we expanded our double edge side supports to Maxi-Boost supplying 70% more support to the edge of the mattress preventing roll out and any type of sagging.
The Eco Kids mattress is the natural choice for all parents who are looking to provide their kids with the best product to help them grow. It is the best mattress available for kids in Australia.

- Hygroflex can redistribute pressure more effectively than traditional memory foams.
- Hygroflex can diffuse body heat more rapidly than traditional memory foams.
- Moving on Hygroflex requires less force and generates less friction.

- Springs and foams are hand clipped, and the cover is hand sewn around the mattress. No harmful glues, bonding agents or chemicals are used in the manufacture of the mattress.
