Eureka Grasshopper Review

According to Eureka Grasshopper reviews, this is one of the better cheap sleeping bags for kids. Parents posting Eureka Grasshopper sleeping bags reviews on Cabela's give it a nearly perfect score, saying it provides warmth and comfort on chilly nights. This cheap sleeping bag boasts a 30 degree temperature rating, which seems fairly accurate. But a few reviews on Amazon caution that it doesn't suffice when the air is that cold, and a couple of parents suggest adding a fleece blanket or wearing fleece clothing for extra warmth. Sleeping bag reviews on Amazon also indicate heavy use indoors and say children are thrilled with these bags; the inner stash pocket holds special appeal as a neat place to stow toys. Reviews also indicate the bag is easy to roll and stuff in its sack.

The Eureka Grasshopper (starting at $30, Amazon) is a mummy-style bag that measures 66" x 26" x 18". This design suits some kids -- it's really cozy, especially with the adjustable hood -- but others may not like the confinement around the legs. The three-pound weight, including 1.7 pounds of a proprietary synthetic fill, is light enough for children to carry. And it's lined with soft polyester taffeta.

You probably won't find a cheap mummy-style kid's sleeping bag that holds up better on cold nights than the Eureka Grasshopper. If you're camping with your kids or just need a durable bag for sleepovers and home use, then the Eureka Grasshopper is a solid buy.
