Baa baa black sheep, have you any wool? Yes sir, yes sir, a snuzpod-full!
Nursery rhymes and playground poems may feel like a distant memory, but you’ll be amazed at how fast those age-old songs come rushing back when trying to lull your bundle of joy to sleep in your arms.
Get in the spirit of whimsical rhymes with décor that captures the essence of your favourite classics. Whether you’ve got a handsome prince or a precious princess on the way, Cuckooland has conjured up a glorious guide for parents-to-be inspired by the most loved rhymes from across the ages. So Polly, put the kettle on, take an itsy bitsy time out from your baby preparations, and let us take you on a tour of nursery rhymes that will help your nursery plans take shape.
Rock a Bye Baby
Every minute is magical in those early months and years, and nothing beats seeing your baby bright eyed and bushy tailed in a morning – especially if you’ve managed to get forty winks too.
Give your baby boy/girl the best chance of a good night’s sleep with nursery essentials that will rock a bye baby when bedtime arrives. Our Deluxe Rocking Moses Basket Stand is perfect for those first few weeks when nestled by mummy and daddy’s bedside. And when your brave boy or girl moves into their new room, send them to slumberland with a stunning Rocking Crib and Cradle from Oliver Furniture.
Nothing helps them drift off into the world of nod like cuddles and lullabies, so treasure those midnight snuggles with our plush White Leatherette Nursing Chair, designed to rock your night owl gently to sleep. Warning: it may make you nod off too!
Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star
Before you know it, your bundle of joy will be toddling their way around the house, so it’s a good idea to invest in their next bed while you’ve still got (some) time on your hands. As your little star becomes more and more alert, it takes a little more imagination to tempt them into sweet dreams. But watch the twinkle in their eyes as you sing a nursery rhyme that will send them into another snooze-iverse.
Surround your child with a sky full of stars with beds and bedding that will spark a love of space and exploration, with our fabulous 4 in 1 Combination Bed. Suitable for ages 2 to 11, this convertible sleeper will grow with your bed bug, making it a smart investment for their room. With clusters of stars on the canopy, it pairs perfectly with a snuggly Single Quilt in Star Design and Cushion from Babyface.
Little Bo Peep
When investing in nursery items for your little one’s crib, you want only the best. Little Bo Peep may have lost her sheep, but we’ve got no shortage of plush wool products to kit out their cot. Make your angel feel cosy and they’ll soon be counting sheep with an Organic Wool Cot Bed Mattress, ideal for sensitive skin and oh-so-soft to the touch. Looking for a magical mobile to hang over the top? We love the adorable sheep, birds and bunny in the Moulin Roty Children’s Musical Mobile.
As your little Bo Peep makes friends with farmyard animals, teach them the art of balance with a baa-rilliant rocker from Little Bird Told Me. The Lambert Infant Rocker is a sweet alternative to a rocking horse, with woolly textures that will have your budding shepherd squealing with delight.
Nelly the Elephant
Once they’ve mastered the stars of Old Mac Donald and Little Bo Peep, move your bright young mind onto more exotic animals… like Nelly the Elephant! Engage their curiosity with all creatures great and small and transform their nursery into a circus of colour, with playful nursery décor from Cuckooland.
Tuck your budding explorer into bed with quilts that will keep their favourite nursery rhymes close to their heart. Our Cot Quilt and Bumper Budding in ABC Design features an elephant on the pillow, with words and letters that will make bedtime as easy as A, B, C! Combine with a Plush Elephant Head to watch over your tot at night, and your girl or boy may dream of becoming a conservationist or a safari King or Queen later in life.
If You Go Down to the Woods Today…
Raise your little tot to be a fearless outdoor enthusiast, with tales of adventure that will foster their imagination. Lay the foundations for family camping trips, by singing the Teddy Bear’s Picnic to your bundle of joy. Bring the outdoors inside with beautiful Into the Wild Kids Wallpaper, and choose rich wooden furniture for their nursery that will give it heaps of natural style.
We love the Lincoln 3 Piece Nursery Room Set in Walnut, with a cot, changing unit and cupboard providing ample storage for nappies, clothes and toys. Or, if you want to take the woodland theme quite literally, invest in a Kids Tree Bookcase that will keep your little one’s growing collection of fairy tales and storybooks organised.
Why settle for a teddy bear when you could have a Plush Henry Bear Rug? This friendly forest creature feels irresistibly soft and is perfect for rolling, crawling and toddling around in those early years. But we’ve got a feeling this rug will be a firm favourite for years to come! Love the texture of Henry? Wrap your babe up in a Faux Fur Baby Blanket that will keep them cosy from cot to pram.
These are just a few of our favourite nursery rhymes here at Cuckooland HQ. But whether you love to row, row, row your boat or play pat-a-cake, our nursery collection is bound to be music to your ears when searching for those all-important baby essentials.
