Searching for some kids bedding to help them sleep soundly? Between monsters under the bed, the fear of the dark and just downright refusing to go to sleep, bedtime with young kids can be a struggle. But, we’re firmly of the opinion that the right set of bedding can work wonders in getting them off to the land of nod. In fact, with snuggly soft and breathable fabrics, cool designs featuring their favourite animals or icons, and much more, it’s quite likely you’ll even have trouble getting them out of bed when breakfast time rolls around (good practice for when they’re teenagers then, we suppose).

A new bedding set can also transform the look of their bedroom, making it more fun for them to spend time in there – not to mention a lot more Instagrammable. We've rounded up the best children's bedding sets you can buy online, from everywhere including The White Company, H&M Home, Scandibørn and more.

Don't miss our kid's room design ideas guide should you be totally redecorating their bedroom.

What to look for in children's bedding? 

The first thing, of course, is making sure they get the most restful night’s sleep possible with a quick glance at the construction label. Most of the sets on our list are 100 per cent cotton, still number one for its cool and breathable nature that means they won’t overheat in the night, but these will tend to come with a slightly bigger price tag. Some more budget-friendly duvets and pillowcases will be a mix of cotton and synthetic, just as soft and cool, if not quite as breathable, and a lot easier on the wallet. So then it’s just down to the design. We’ve rounded up offbeat designs worthy of any kid's room, from digital prints to quirky patterns, cute traditional designs with high-end details, and everything in between.
