Duvet covers and bedding sets can be lots of fun to buy. There are so many glorious designs that can add fantastic touches to a nursery or children’s room and delight little ones with their bright designs.


But before you dive in, it’s worth considering a few things such as size and quality of material. You might prefer pure cotton for its temperature-regulating properties, or a poly-cotton for quick drying (handy if they’re sick, or moving out of nappies and prone to bedwetting). Also, double-check the size of your little one’s duvet, as some covers come in non-standard dimensions.

And remember that a duvet is not recommended for children under 1 year – read our safe sleep guidelines for babies for more information.

1. Frugi Cuddle-Up Cot Duvet Set, £49

Fabric: GOTs certified organic cotton

Size: Cot size (156x120cm approx)

Frugi is a brand well known for their kids’ clothes made from organic fabric, and its bedding is equally good-quality and stylish. We love the Jurassic Lands print in this cot duvet range, with its bright colours and whimsical dinosaurs.

Frugi also allows you to personalise the design with your child’s name (for an extra £5), and the set comes with a draw-string bag, so this would make a wonderful present.

Best of all, you can machine-wash the fabric in a warm wash and tumble-dry it on medium.

Available from: Frugi or Babipur

2. Ikea Stillsamt Quilt Cover and Pillowcase, £13

Fabric: Cotton

Size: 150x200cm

Ikea always knows how to brighten up a room, and we are particularly enamoured with this retro duvet cover set in eye-catching orange. Made from a 144 thread-count cotton, it is easy to keep clean as you can wash it on up to 60 degrees if needed, and dry it at normal temperature.

The Swedish retailer is also trying to use cotton from more sustainable sources, and with that price, you really can’t go wrong on value.

Available from: Ikea

3. Zara Home Elephant Duvet Cover, from £15.99

Fabric: Cotton (machine-wash up to 40 degrees, tumble-dry low)

Size: From standard cot (100x120cm) to double (220x220cm)

Zara Home offers a lovely understated and charming style, and this bed set is no exception with its simple elephant motif. It’s from the brand’s Join Life range which aims to help protect biodiversity by using ecologically grown cotton.

The duvet cover has a hidden button closure (apart from the cot size, which has a hidden envelope closure).

Made from 100% cotton at a 15-thread count, it is perfect for keeping children comfy overnight.

Available from: Zara Home

4. John Lewis LEGO Single Duvet Set, £30

Fabric: Cotton

Size: 135x200cm

We know quite a few kids who would really appreciate this cool LEGO design. With some of their favourite characters on one side, and the famous LEGO bricks on the other, the design really stands out, and will keep kids happy for many years.

Made from cotton, it will keep your little ones cosy and cool during the night, plus it is machine washable and can be tumble-dried on low.

Available from: John Lewis

5. Gro To Bed Many Moons Cot Bed Set, from £39.99

Fabric: Cotton

Size: Cot bed (mattresses of 70x140cm), Single bed (mattresses of 90x190cm)

Trust the UK’s leading baby sleep product company to come up with an ingenious new duvet set.

The Gro To Bed is a cover set that allows you to zip the duvet cover to the sheet (which also has an integrated pillowcase), to make the transition from its Grobag to bedding, or from cot to bed much easier.

Made from woven cotton, it is comfortable and helps prevent your child from falling out of bed. The brand recommends using it from 18 months.

Available from: The Gro Company, John Lewis or Amazon

6. George at Asda Disney The Lion King Easy Care Reversible Duvet Set Double, £20

Fabric: Polycotton (52% polyester, 48% cotton)

Size: Double (200x200cm)

George at Asda is fantastic for finding your kids’ favourite characters to adorn their beds with. They offer everything from the latest Toy Story cast to Minecraft.

We particularly love the fabulous print and colour of this double Lion King set, which is bound to brighten up your kid’s room. This set is made from polycotton, but George also offers a variety of sets in 100% cotton, if you prefer that. There’s also a Lion King-themed single design if you prefer.

Available from: George at Asda

7. Next Glow in the Dark Space Planets Duvet Set, £15-£18

Fabric: Polycotton (52% polyester, 48% cotton)

Size: Toddler, Single

This is the perfect set for the space-fanatic in your life, with the bright design creating a perfect focal point in any child’s bedroom.

Best of all, it glows in the dark for some space-themed bedtime entertainment.

Available from: Next

8. Eat Sleep Doodle Colour & Learn World Map Duvet Cover, £29.95

Fabric: Cotton

Size: 140x200cm

We are not quite sure about a ‘colour-your-own’ duvet cover, but we do like the design of this. It has some cute illustrations showing creatures and places around the world, with some text to learn facts and figures – all on a faint blue background.

The duvet cover comes with fabric pens that completely wash out on a warm wash, so your kids can have endless evening doodle fun – which might be useful, depending on your current bedtime routine.

You can also buy a matching pillowcase. 

Available from: Amazon, Eat Sleep Doodle or NotOnTheHighstreet

9. Tobias and the Bear Fawn Cotbed Duvet Set, £50

Fabric: Oeko-Tex certified jersey cotton

Size: 150x120cm

We instantly fell in love with this cute and charming Fawn design from UK brand Tobias and the Bear.

All the brand’s products are made in the UK and use organic materials printed with water-based inks – the best possible quality for your little ones.

This set is high-end enough to make a perfect gift and comes in a drawstring bag.

You can wash it on a low temperature, and also get it as a single bed set, once your little one is ready to upgrade!

Available from: Tobias and the Bear

10. Great Little Trading Co. Superhero Bedding Set, Single, £32.30

Fabric: 100% cotton (180 thread count)

Size: (135x200cm)

Great Little Trading Co.’s bedding is made from super-soft 100% cotton, ideal for keeping kids comfortable.

This new superhero design is indeed superb – we really like the fun graphics and colourful touches. We also love that you can carry through the look by adding a bean bag (£65) or canvas cube in the same fabric (£19).

Available from: Great Little Trading Co.
