Tested by mum Elizabeth Emmanuel for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

Excellent, extremely well made cot.  Lovely soft lines and great quality.  Loved the storage under the cot as well!

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

It's a pleasure putting my little one down to sleep in this cot.  It looks so cosy and comforting and very safe!

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

No need for any changes!

Tested by mum Helen Bristow for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

I love this cot bed. I think it suits a girl rather than a boy due to its curves, but my daughter was extremely excited when she discovered she was allowed to sleep in it. The cot bed is chunky, sturdy and well-designed. The under drawer is strong and deep allowing storage of both bedding and towels (or whatever else you wish to put in there) and it opens/closes smoothly.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

My daughter loves this - she calls it her princess bed. It has been so much easier to get her into bed since having this cot bed. Although relatively large, the cot, cot bed and day sofa options mean it is versatile and will last years. A definite money saver over time.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

The paint has already started to chip in the swirls on the end of the sleigh shape. Perhaps remove the grooves or make them wider to prevent the chips.

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow parent?

Great design, solid manufacture, relatively easy to put together and a great finish. The white really sets this cot off and the chunkiness makes it stand out. I would suggest it is a more feminine design, but I think this of all sleigh beds. You get a lot for your money with this cot and it will last years.

How does this product make your life easier as a parent?

The ability to convert between cot, cot bed and day bed means it will last years, thereby saving you money in the long run.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

Something that really irritated me was that the edge of the slates/side rail isn't painted white so when in cot bed mode rather than cot, you can see the wood underneath rather than being fully white. Please paint it in the future!

Tested by mum Isobel Peachell for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

Nice deep drawer space for storage, strong and chunky materials used to make the cot bed and a lovely finish. The versatility in how the cot is put together - varying height options when in cot mode, then the ability to switch between cot, cot bed and day bed/sofa is pure genius and means the cot bed will last years, through several stages of development.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

Despite me thinking this was more of a girls design, my son loved it. Having a bed he wants to get into really helped improve the bed time hour; saved me time and made us all more relaxed.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

Provide/include a smaller footboard for when it is in cot bed mode so that it looks more like a proper bed, rather than a cot with the sides taken off.

Tested by Ann Day for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a parent?

Quick and easy to assemble, even for a granny with arthritic hands (with a little help). Looks great, chunky for stability, a solid piece of kit with a lovely white finish. Beautiful curves and the design is seemingly attractive to young children, as my granddaughter loved it! Nice thick slates and large storage drawer. It also has teething rails which I'm told are a great idea.

How does this product make your life easier as a grandmother?

My granddaughter is a sleep refuser, she hates going to bed and often has meltdowns. Having her 'princess bed' has made bedtimes more fun and more relaxing for everyone involved. She loves the white design against her pink walls, as it makes the cot the focal point of the room.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

The paint has already started to flake a little in places and it could do with a small side rail when in bed mode.

Tested by mum Jessica Swatridge for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

You get a lot for your money with this cot. It has a variety of options for set up – height-adjustable cot, then it transforms into a toddler bed and then a day bed/mini sofa. It has teething rails and is made of what seems like hard wearing wood. The cot itself has a nice, curvy design, although be warned, it does take up a fair bit of space.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

Quick and easy to put together and its sturdiness is what Kiddicare guarantee which means you have faith in its durability. It could save you money over time.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

The edge of the bed shows the colour of the wood, rather than the white colour the rest has been painted with when it is in toddler bed mode. Perhaps you could include a strip of wood to become a side once it is turned into a toddler bed to hide this area and also give a bit of protection against kids falling out of bed.
