Children's Shelves & Bookcases

Kids’ Shelves and Bookcases

 
 

Want to reward your favourite bookworm? Cuckooland have a range of incredible shelves and bookcases to keep their little libraries well organised.

From traditional bookcases to modern storage solutions, there’s a lot to browse through when it comes to our shelving and bookcase collection. They’re just one part of our Kids’ Storage Furniture too, so you can pair up the items you love.

Kids’ Shelves and Bookcase FAQs 

However, we suggest reading some of our big questions first, to make this investment all that much better…

  1. Do I need to affix my Bookcase to the wall?

  2. It’s not 100% necessary, but many parents prefer doing this for peace of mind. Buy a stud locator and use it to determine where you can drill into the wall. Pencil a vertical line and move the bookcase back to it. You can then install a L-bracket on the stud line, drilling into the top shelf before securing it on the wall’s other side. Some items arrive with their own fixtures.

  3. If the wall isn’t strong enough, can I leave a Bookcase freestanding?

  4. Yes, our manufacturers have ensured these bookcases can stand on their own. To be safe, balance the items on the shelves in terms of weight. That’ll keep them from toppling over.

  5. How many books will a typical Bookcase hold?

  6. Capacity differs from case to case. As a rule, we’d recommend you stack no more than 80-100 books, if it’s a mix of hardback and paperback. Depth specifications on each product page should give you a more accurate idea.

  7. Do the Shelving Units include the screws and plugs for hanging?

  8. We include screws and plugs for the thinner, more complex or delicate items. Bulkier selections, however, tend not to come with these. This is because they have a natural stability and it’s a matter of preference whether you want to attach them to the wall.

  9. Can Shelves or Bookcases be painted?

  10. Although many of our storage units arrive with a paint scheme, you’re always free to give them a makeover. Whether it’s real or imitation wood, you can sand it down – moving with the grain for material like oak, pine and beech – until it’s ready for a primer solution. Then apply several coats of paint before finishing with a sealant.

Kids Teepee Cabin Bed

Fantastic bed! My daughter loves this as do I, it is really well made and heavy and was relatively easy to assemble. It gives my daughters room a really magical feel, would definitely recommend.

Uuni 3 Wood-Fired Pizza Oven

So easy to use and produces simply excellent pizzas. Wood fire oven pizzas taste so much better and in the UUNI they cook very quickly indeed, (you'll need to turn them every thirty seconds or so for the perfect pizza). Well made product and only took fifteen minutes to assemble - even the correct tools were provided so no digging around in my toolbox.

The Garden Igloo 360 Dome

I love our igloo. Not too hard to put up, it's lovely to sit inside as the nights are drawing in. It's like a conservatory. Spacious too. We've added some fairy lights and candles. There is a slight smell of pvc but the fragranced candles disguise it. Looking forward to using it in the summer too and will buy the canvas cover. I may even put some flooring down to make it even cosier!

Kubu Rattan Hanging Lamp

Amazing first class customer experience!! Very helpful and honest staff. I will look here again!!
