This is what children want their dream bed to look like – and so do we!

Rockets, racetracks and flowers galore feature on these dreamy beds

 We all know that kids have the most amazing imaginations and can think up ideas and designs that us adults are in awe of.

And when it comes to thinking up a dream bed, they were always going to be pretty out of this world.

With online search for kids bedroom ideas understandably on the rise of late, since more bedrooms are now doubling up as classrooms, too, Happy Beds challenged children across the UK to draw their ideal beds and send them to the Happy Beds HQ.

And they didn’t disappoint. Here are some of our fav designs.

11-year-old Ruby wanted something more literary based and designed her bed based on ‘The Magic Faraway Tree’ by Enid Bylton. With a tree frame, moonface clock and flower duvet, we’d love to spend the night in this fairytale bed.

Joy Richards, Sleep Specialist at Happy Beds says, ‘We were looking for kids’ bed designs that adults simply can’t think of – the more outlandish and creative designs, the better- and these designers did just that’

But for parents who are looking to update their kids bedrooms now, rather than wait for their little one’s to become product designers in later life, Happy Beds have a huge range of fun and exciting beds ready to ship now.
