When I was in Brazil they had Temper Pedic mattresses, but they were just called "Temper", and were basically foam, covered with a lining to imitate the real thing. It was one of the cheapest knockoff things I've ever seen.
Charlie Boy - I know what you mean. My charity org buys school supplies, playground equipment, and sporting equipment for schools here and almost all of it breaks within a short time. We recently bought some jump-ropes and they all broke within a few minutes of use. Oh, and a hammer that broke after a few swings.
There's no real quality control and everything is buyer beware.
