It’s hard not to marvel at the big ideas our little ones have. When they’re not taking on the world, they seem to be full of surprises and their hidden talents make every day an adventure for us parents. Although their energy levels seem limitless (and relentless!), sleep is important for children and teens, and therefore… so are their beds. Cuckooland understands that between half and a third of a child’s life is spent sleeping so we’re thinking, why on earth skimp on something as important as the right bed? Thankfully all our beds are hand selected for originality and quality, so if you haven’t entered the kids bed revolution yet, its not too late to join – a new bed or upgrade is only a click away! And our kids beds start at a very affordable £105! (but we do have luxury childrens beds all the way up to £5000 too – in case you’re looking for something really special!).
Ok, lets pull this back from in your face salesy and rather share with you our latest Kids Bed Guide- the Ultimate High Sleeper Guide:
High Sleeper Beds are Unique Kids Beds that are raised up (mostly) a little higher than traditional Bunk Beds, usually with a work or play area underneath with enough head room to keep your child free from early life concussion – they also have plenty of practical storage solutions too.
From creative designs for daydreamers to teen-approved beds for older children, we’re here to put the fun into finding a new bed for your snoozer. Whether you’re looking to maximise space or unlock their imagination, let us take you on a tour of the ultimate kids beds.

Sleep in the Stars
Does your little monkey dream about hanging out in trees, or jetting off to the moon? Let their imagination take flight with an out-of-this-world high sleeper from Cuckooland. Our magical collection of creative bed designs is bound to inspire your bright young mind, with something for every personality.
The Lifetime Tree House Rope Bed (above) may look like a higgledy-piddledy shack towering in the trees, but rest assured, it’s a superb kids bed that’s as sturdy and practical as it is fun. For astronauts with a sense of adventure, the Discovery Astronaut Children’s Cabin Bed (below) will banish complaints at bedtime, and transform their room into a whole new universe. With space station curtains and a space shuttle covering the ladder, your budding explorer will climb into the land of nod with a smile on their face.
Dens to Dive Into
What is it about dens that get the kids so excited? We may not relish the house being turned upside down, but nothing beats the squeals of glee as your little one dives into their den. Indulge their creativity without making the house topsy-turvy by investing in a sleeper that features its very own den.
For knights in training who crave a castle to conquer, the Knight Boys Cabin Bed will be the jewel in the crown of your little boy’s bedroom. The colourful curtains make a great hideout when defending the room from enemy attack, as well as handy storage when playtime comes to an end! And with a slide descending down from the bed, your monster is bound to start the day on the right foot.
Searching for a bed that’s just as brilliant for girls? For a high sleeper with wow factor, look no further than the Wonderland Girls Cabin Bed. Set off the ground with a hidden play area underneath, the beautiful whitewashed wood and pretty-in-pink Wonderland curtains will inject some personality into a princesses bedroom fit for a queen.
Before you know it, your little wonder has traded in fancy dress outfits and teddy bears for new hobbies, friends and heaps of homework. So give their room an upgrade to create a cool space where they can escape after a long day at school. High sleepers are perfect for growing kids and teens, leaving space for a desk underneath where they can crack on with work in private.
We love the Julien Kids Loft Bed and Desk, with modern design, a spacious desk and four shelves to keep their gadgets and gizmos in check. The side ladder is designed to maximise space so that even the teeniest kids bedrooms can benefit from a study area. Available in white or brushed grey pine, it’s perfect for boys and girls who want a fresh new look for their room.
Over the years, those birthday and Christmas presents soon start to tot up! Keeping your kid’s bedroom neat and tidy can be a challenge at the best of times, but if you don’t have enough storage it’s a near impossible task. High sleepers are a smart solution for rooms where space is limited, maximising floor space and making it easy to reduce clutter.
For an all-in-one solution that’s ideal for fashion-conscious teens, we love the Parisot High Tek High Sleeper Bed. Not only does it feature a desk, drawers and more shelves than your teen is likely to have stuff for, it also has a cool lit backdrop of New York that will add a burst of colour to the bedroom. Perfect for teens with a thirst for travel or a love of American Sitcoms!
Totally different but equally stylish, the Children’s Luxury High Loft Bed is a charming choice for kids who constantly have friends round to visit. This chic and modern sleeper boasts two benches underneath, with an optional storage cube that can serve as a table, for year-round picnics and tea parties. Shelving beneath the benches offers handy extra storage, with plenty of floor space to play with too!
Room for Two
Sleepovers are the highlight of our little ones’ childhood, so make their mates feel at home with a high sleeper that can fit a mattress underneath. These flexible sleeping solutions can easily be converted from a play or study area into an extra bed when friends come over, to take the hassle out of sleepovers on weekends.
Make your angel feel like a princess with a Four Poster High Bed where she can reign supreme, with a beautiful canopy and a spacious hideout beneath for a mattress. For something both boys and girls will love, the Silversparkle Children’s Treehouse High Hut is another top choice, sat high off the ground to leave room for two. This terrific treehouse has an open window where you can peek in at bedtime, and a shelf to store their favourite book and teddy!
When toes start to peep out from the bottom of the duvet, don’t snooze on your hunt for a stylish new sleeper. Our marvellous collection of kids high sleeper beds has something for every age and personality – even hard-to-please teens who want to take charge of decorating their rooms. We handpick only the finest furniture for children’s bedrooms, to guarantee sweet dreams every night of the week.
