Q.When is the right time to move my child to a bed?
Moving from cot to their first kids bed is an exciting milestone in a childs life. However, making the change is sometimes tricky. It may be hard to know whether or not your child is ready to move from a cot to a bed. Signs of readiness include climbing out of the cot , wanting to sleep in your bed or needing to get to the toilet at night.
Most children move to a bed somewhere between the ages of eighteen months and 2 years..
Q.Should a parent pass down an old mattress to a child?
If a mattress is no longer comfortable for you, it’s not good enough for someone else especially your child. As kids grow, they need a supportive and comfortable mattress that is right for them and their little bodies. Be sure your children have enough space to move around comfortably and grow into as they won’t be small for long. Selecting your child’s first “big girl” or “big boy” bed is an important decision so you should consider that it is big enough and provide enough space and be comfort for them as they grow.

Q.Does the furniture arrive assembled?
Most of the furniture does not arrive assembled and will need assembly. Depending on which product you choose will depend on how much assembly that may be required. Most of our furniture is flat packed so a good knowledge of assembling flat packed furniture is required. Some items are easy to assemble, so a little more difficult.
If you require help with assembly, then searching on a site like Gumtree for local flat pack assemble people is often a good start.
Q.How long does it take to assemble a piece of furniture?
The assembly time varies and can depend on the size of the product, the number of pieces in the item and your experience with assembling furniture. The process is simple, but some pieces can be assembled in an hour or so and others may take a few hours. And the more experience you have with assembling furniture, the faster it will take. Working with someone can also cut the assembly time considerably. As a general rule, Kids chairs, bedsides and Kids beds are the fastest and Kids desks take the most time. All furniture comes with assembly instructions.

Q. What is MDF?
Medium-density fibreboard (MDF) is an engineered wood product formed by breaking down hardwood or softwood residuals into wood fibres, combining it with wax and a resin binder, and forming panels by applying high temperature and pressure The comparison between MDF and plywood is that MDF is a lot stronger and denser. Almost of our Childrens beds, childrens desks and bedroom furniture is made of MDF.
It is made up of separated fibres, (not wood veneers) but can be used as a building material similar in application to plywood. It is much more dense than normal particle board.
