Best kids' bedding

Convince your children to go to bed on time with these alluring bed sheets

No child wants to go to bed, there's too much life they haven't yet explored, but having the right duvet and bed sheets can help tilt the cat and mouse game in your favor.

We’re not making any promises, but they might even stay put longer in the mornings, too.

Bedding sets come in a variety of different sizes, so make sure the one you choose will fit your child’s bed and duvet.

You'll also want to look closely at the fabric quality. For maximum comfort and breathability, go for 100% cotton. If you’re looking for extra comfort, we'd suggest super soft jersey cotton.

Finally, accidents happen – so it’s vital that bedding for kids washes well without fading and dries quickly so you can pop it back on in time for bedtime.

Frugi Snoozy Single Applique Duvet Set: $87, Frugi

Everything about this is exquisite – it’s a duvet set with serious wow factor.

From the beautiful packaging, complete with matching drawstring cotton bag to store the linen in, and the fabric quality (100 per cent chemical-free organic cotton poplin) to the beautiful button fastenings and vibrant colors– this one is hands-down our favorite.

Our testers loved this when we gave it to them, it makes their bed the centrepiece of the room. If only they did duvet covers for grownups.

Snurk Footballer Bedding: $119, Snurk

We’ve seen these striking duvet covers gracing the pages of various glossy magazines – they look just as good in real life, especially in a messy pre-teen’s bedroom.

The fabric feels lovely and the image quality is crystal-clear. For the first time in his life our tester – an avid football fan – was quite keen to go to bed beneath this.

Catherine Lansfield Stars and Stripes Double Duvet Set: $23.40, bonanza

A great value set for teens and tweens. It’s a polyester/cotton mix, hence the affordable price tag – but the fabric quality is good for a set that washes well without fading and can be tumble-dried.

The stars and stripes color are bright and bold, and look great in a rooms with red, white or blue accessories without being too, well, patriotic.
