Great Little Trading Co. Bedding Review and Competition

With the boys enjoying their new car themed wall stickers it was exciting to get an opportunity to review a set of the childrens’ bedding to compliment the look.

The Racing Cars Duvet Cover Set is perfect for children who love cars and racing their toys around.  With bedding this comfortable and with such a fabulous applique and embroidered design, the motivation to fight going to bed seems to have been diffused.  



Youngest on the day I originally wrote this post had a temper tantrum that lasted no less than three hours, I was exhausted and on my last legs!  So hooray for new soft cotton bedding to get him tucked into bed and quickly off to sleep…

With him fast asleep I can finally feel a little bit like myself again!  It’s amazing that kids’ bedding can have such a positive effect on your life.  But am sure so many of my followers can relate!  Raising kids can be tough and we need our evening downtime to recover, ready to face more of the same the next day!

Priced at £55, I do not tend to spend this much on bedding normally but I am being swayed with this set.  I have learnt that buying cheaply is not necessarily a good thing when it comes to settling children.  The duvet seems to move around in cheaper duvet covers and is often scrunched up, meaning your child can get cold in the night and wake up!  I only use our cheaper alternatives as a last resort (when I am behind on the washing!) because frankly they just seem to add to my Missing Sleep problems…

I was fortunate to be offered another set to giveaway; the winner can pick either the Racing Cars Duvet Cover Set (like I reviewed) or a Butterfly Duvet Cover Set (very pretty!).  
To enter please complete the rafflecopter below by the 19th of June.

    ReplyDelete
  138. Would love the racing cars one!


    I also have a tip for you lol!


    If you stitch little ribbons into the corners on the inside of the duvet cover and the duvet you can then tie them together to stop the covers slipping. I found this out after my son nagged and nagged for a certain character duvet cover which was quite frankly useless! It would slip everywhere and his duvet would end up in a scrunched up heap at the bottom meaning he was waking up cold. I had to do something so tried this and it works great. I have done it with them all now!
