Delve into the many sites online featuring unique children's beds and remember your own favourite childhood fantasies as you discover what designers have devised to delight kids and chase away their bedtime blues. Rather than a simple twin bed with a few colourful decals, dozens of fantasy beds are now available for both boys and girls, many of them elaborated with cubbyholes and secret spaces, created to provide fun and to stimulate children's active imaginations (see Reference 1).

Dreaming of being royal princesses, beauty queens, fairies and Hollywood movie stars, little girls can be pleasured with unique beds to help them live out those fantasies. Now parents can charm their daughters with any one of dozens of princess beds, fairy retreat beds and castle beds, inspired from feudal times as well as from today's modern royal styles, such as an ultra-chic Parisian royal canopy bed for the little milady.
Climbing in the evenings into a red spider car fantasy bed or a Formula 8 blue race car bed can be a dream experience for young boys. Designers have now made it possible for boys to crawl with delight into a dump truck bed or a knight's castle bed. Fire truck and fire engine beds, in both antique and modern styles, cater equally to boys' active imaginations. On offer are also beds designed as forts with doors that open and close, or as clubhouses with secret trap doors, or as a pirate ship.
Romantic themes abound and many can be found at thebeanbagstore.com.
Fun Bunk and Loft Beds
Tents and cubby houses adorn fun bunk and loft beds to enable kids to retreat with pleasure into their own fantasy worlds rather than resisting their parents' call to bedtime. Bunk beds have many castle themes, some with each bed nestled in separate corners of castles for each little brother knight to own and defend. Loft beds are built not only into castles, but into fire stations and pirate ships as well, complete with interior and exterior slides and secret entrances.
Girls and their dolls can go to sleep in a lavish playhouse bed, with a loft bed for their dolls, complete with a doll closet, and downstairs a small doll kitchen and living room with a full-sized desk and bookshelves for the little mother herself.
Futon bunk beds are a chic alternative for fun beds that resemble fashionable or exotic furniture at justkidsbeds.com.
Hand-crafted Fantasy Beds
When budget is no problem, hand-designed, often one-of-a-kind fun beds are a fascinating option. Imagine your child's bedroom filled with a tropical tree house made of real bamboo with a thatched roof surrounded by palm trees, containing not only your child's bed and a loft bed, but a slide and rock wall as well. For rough and tumble boys, there is also available an adventure loft bed with a surf theme complete with rope ladder, slide and rock wall climb.
Talented craftsmen and artists can also design for your little queen a princess palace bed with two outer spiral staircases leading to a royal balcony with turrets, decorated with custom hand-turned spindles painted any colour you choose. This masterpiece is available at sweetdreambed.com.
Circus-tent twin beds and round beds for kids can be found at netkidswear.com.
