Up Your Game with a Gaming Bed from Cuckooland

I am a self confessed kids bed expert – I could talk about them until the cows come home (I’m beginning to think even my loyal retriever may be tiring of our daily chats on our morning walk!). However I did have to up my game a little when we launched our new range of gaming beds at Cuckooland… gaming is something I know very little about.

Similar to how children’s beds have exploded in variety and choice, the gaming landscape has changed considerably over the years when once upon a time there were only one or two consoles to choose between. Keen to get my head around the now larger gamut of gaming consoles, I set myself a little challenge to try and best match a kids gaming bed to a gaming console! Read on to discover my recommendations;

Flexa Nordic Kids High Sleeper 2 in White

The affordable all rounder

If you’re looking for an affordable kids gaming bed that offers up a place to sleep and create a cool gaming environment, the Urban Grey Console Gaming High Sleeper 4 has everything your tech loving kiddo needs.

This high sleeper bed features a large under bed desk, with a raised shelf that is perfect for monitors. Beneath the shelf are open compartments that are perfectly proportioned to fit gaming consoles.

With multi coloured LED strip lighting and a wireless charger included, your little gamer will be able to create the perfect gaming ambience.

  • Gaming console best match – Playstation 4: The PS4 is the Sony’s baseline console and has been a firm household favourite since launching seven years ago. For those looking for the most affordable all rounder gaming console, then the PS4 is the one to go for. Look out for the Playstation 5 coming out in November!

Upgrade like a pro

Some kid’s gaming beds, like gaming consoles, have the option to upgrade to a model that offers even more features than the standard version.

The Urban Grey PC Gaming High Sleeper 5 features everything that the High Sleeper 4 has to offer, with the addition of 2 storage units that sit under the desk and are ideal for housing a PC tower and other accessories for those who prefer PC Gaming.

  • Gaming console best match – Playstation 4 Pro: Offers everything that the PS4 can do, with even more features and better performance. Hailed as the most powerful console in the PlayStation family at the moment. But remember… the Playstation 5 is on the way.

Compact, Sleek & Packs a Punch

With everything at close proximity, the Parisot Higher Kids High Sleeper Bed with Desk & Wardrobe is one space saving gaming bed.

The loft style kids bed features oodles of storage, including shelving, both under bed and at bed level, an under bed wardrobe and a large desk. Finished in a contemporary light ash colour, this children’s gaming bed will suit many a bedroom theme.

  • Gaming console best match – Xbox One S: This console has outmoded the Xbox One, namely for its smaller and sleeker design and that it packs that little bit more power. There is also the Xbox One X (already out) and the next generation Xbox Series X to rival the Playstation 5 to look forward to.

Combination is king

Choosing a kid’s bed that has multi purpose features and not just a place to sleep, can be really useful, particularly as your child gets older and craves more time in their bedroom.

The Urban Grey High Sleeper 3 Bed in White & Grey is a super example of a multi purpose children’s bed. A high sleeper with sofa offers up both a place to sleep and a place to chill. The sofa can be extended to a sofa bed if required, and the freestanding under-bed storage is the perfect spot for housing a games console and monitor.

Seen here is white and grey, this bed also comes in white and birch.

  • Gaming console best match – Nintendo Switch: Named as one of the most unique games consoles on the market at the moment, the Nintendo Switch can be used as both a handheld and at home TV console.
