Sheet Sets Kids' Sheets

Many sets on Overstock also boast fully elasticized fitted sheets that ensure an extra tight fit on the mattress of your active little sleeper.

Kids' Sheets FAQ
What Do Thread Counts Mean?
The thread count of your child's sheets refers to the total number of threads per square inch. A higher thread count results in a smoother feel that's easy on children's sensitive skin, and high-thread-count sheets tend to last longer. A thread count of 200 and up generally offers the best quality.
How Do You Choose Kids' Sheet Sizes?
Kids' sheets from Overstock are made to fit standard bed sizes such as twin, full, and queen. If you're not sure what size your child's bed is, bust out the measuring tape. A twin bed is 39 by 75 inches, but if the bed is 39 by 80 inches, you need a twin XL sheet set to accommodate those extra 5 inches. A full or double bed is 54 by 75 inches, while a queen is 60 by 80 inches.
What's the Best Way to Care for Kids' Sheets?
Wash your little one's sheets once a week to prevent the buildup of bacteria and body soil. Most sheet sets and body pillow covers are machine washable, but be sure to follow specific washing instructions to ensure your kids' sheets stay strong and comfortable for years to come. You can then tumble-dry the sheets on low heat or hang them on a clothesline. Fold and store bedding in a dry place to prevent mildew.
