Children’s Playdate & Sleepover Essentials

The sun is shining, birds are singing and COVID restrictions are coming to an end. So, what does the end of lockdown mean for us parents? Social lives are back! (That is, the kid’s social lives, not ours…)

Children will be resuming their once sociable lives, and we’re forecasting a summer filled with birthday parties, play dates and exciting activities… After months of only seeing their friends in school, they’ll be itching to invite them round to play and you’ll once again be hearing the words “can we have a sleepover?!” But not to worry, we’re here to help you get prepared with everything you could possibly need for your little one to re-enter the life of a socialite. From trundle beds to play houses, we’ve got it all.
Take a look at our must-have list for children’s parties, after-school playdates & sleepovers:

Trundle Beds

It’s not a sleepover without a guest bed, but who has the space? Having a dedicated spare bed can just take up too much room – you may use your spare bedroom for something else, or may not have one at all! So, a Trundle Bed is the ideal solution. We’ve designed all TCFC branded beds to perfectly fit our Single Trundle Bed underneath. They’re easy to slide in & out and are a huge space-saver!
Don’t forget the Trundle Mattress!
Our Trundle Beds are available as a pull-out or pop-up…

Captain’s Bed

A similar concept to a trundle bed, but even better! You may be worried that the space underneath your child’s bed could be better used for some under-bed drawers, and that a trundle would take up too much potential storage space. After all, we all know how many toys kids have! Well not to worry – a Captain’s Bed is the ultimate hybrid solution, with a pull-out trundle bed that features built-in storage drawers, so you needn’t compromise on anything.

Sofa Beds & Z Beds

Children’s Chair Bed | Children’s Sofa Bed

There’s nothing like a classic sofa bed when you’ve got some extra little people coming to stay. When it’s not being used as a bed, your little one can have a place to sit and read or relax during the day. They take up minimal space, look great in any room, and fit perfectly underneath high-sleepers & mid-sleepers.

Or, if you need something even more compact, why not try a simple, easy-to-use folding Z Bed.

Bed in a Bag

So what do you do when the roles are reversed and your little one is running off to their friend’s house to stay the night? You might want to pack them something comfy to sleep on just in case… The Bed in a Bag is an absolute godsend for sleepovers – a cosy mattress with a fun design that can be easily rolled back up and placed back in its matching bag the next morning. All they need to top it off is a blanket or duvet!


But it’s not just about sleeping, is it? We can’t forget about playtime!
Here are some playdate essentials to provide hours of both indoor & outdoor fun.

Play Houses

A themed Play House will not only provide hours of fun & playtime, but it’s a great idea for keeping your little one and their friends entertained on their playdates. We all know how much children love role-playing games, and a Play House gives them the perfect setting for their imaginations to run wild.
While we recommend packing them away after playtime, they can be assembled indoors or outdoors for some extra garden fun on a sunny day.

Our personal favourite: the Rose Cottage & Tea House 2 in 1 Playhouse – a fine design that’s a cottage in the front, tea house in the back!

Play Tables & Chairs

And for those rainy days when entertaining multiple children seems like an impossible task, you can make your job as host a whole lot easier with a Play Table & Chairs. A place for children of all ages to sit and get creative – whether they’re drawing/colouring, playing games or having a tea party!
Our collection of Play Tables & Chairs includes sets with 2 or 4 chairs, or the choice to buy the chairs & tables separately, in a wide selection of colours.
