Tidy Books Bunk Bed Buddy Storage Review and Competition

My eldest was delighted with our next review item arrived as it was intended for him.  His little brother still adores his Tidy Books Bookcase and is always very enthusiastic about picking out his books every evening!

Eldest was reviewing the Bunk Bed Storage Shelf, as we are in the process of moving house, hubbie said we could not screw it up on the wall just yet.  We are ordering bunk beds for the boys after we have a moving in date (keep your fingers crossed for us!).  So I may well update this post with a picture once it makes it on the wall, but until then you can see how pleased eldest is with his new shelf from his big smile.


I think it is a very useful storage solution, as I should imagine you could feel a little secluded on the top bunk at times without a night-light or drink nearby!  Having a decent sized shelf would stop your child having to journey up and down the ladder to bring up all their favourite things to bed!  I would also feel reassured knowing they have space for a little light on their shelf that they can then turn on to help guide them down the ladder safely.

So this shelf really works for me as a worrying mum and for my child as a practical but fun way to store his belongings and cups of water.  We reviewed the ‘Around the World’ design, which costs £54.95; the other plain coloured shelves cost £49.95.  I think the pictures on our shelf though are interesting and eye-catching so well worth paying that little bit extra.  The shelf is the perfect size to hold plenty within the two sections without looking chunky and dominating any bedroom.


The shelf is strong and safe; the back has pre-drilled holes so it will be an easy process attaching it to the wall.  We had no difficulties with our book shelf and I have every confidence hubbie will have this on the wall in no time at all once we have settled in to our new address!  

I have a feeling I might have to buy another one soon after for youngest, he will want the same comforts to hand when he upgrades to a bunk bed too.  But I have no qualms treating him to one; they really are a well thought out product, which will be useful for years.  Although I bet I will find no one wants to sleep on the bottom bed anymore as they will all want access to this fabulous shelf.

I have kindly been offered one of these bunk bed storage shelves to giveaway if you would like to enter please fill out the rafflecopter below by the 2nd of March.

  116. I've wanted one of these for so long. We have a little bookcase downstairs for my daughter but she likes to keep some of her books upstairs for bedtime stories, their isn't a shelf in her room so there just stacked up on top of her draws.
    But after I've read her a story she likes me to leave the book we've read tucked into the side of her bed (in between the mattress and the bed frame) just in case she needs to see it in the night she tells me.
    I think one of these tidy bookcases would be a much safer place for them though as the often get creased in the bed with her and she'd still be able to get to them if needed.

    ReplyDelete
  117. This would be perfect for my son's cabin bed
