  • Trivia

    • When Nellie is in her room throwing a temper tantrum after dinner, her squeaky mattress can clearly be seen bouncing up and down as she pounds her fists on it. Though patented in Germany in the mid-1870's, innerspring mattresses were rarely available in the United States until Sealy Co. began mass producing them in 1906. Nellie would more likely have had a bed like everyone else in Walnut Grove, a thin "mattress" filled with horsehair, down and/or hay, atop a wood bed frame.
