The summer holidays present the perfect opportunity to catch up with yourself and sort out the probable chaos of your child’s room. There is certainly some satisfaction to be had from getting organised, ship shape and ready for the onset of the autumn term, especially when your mantra is ‘out with the old and in with...nothing whatsoever’! You see, the great thing about a summer clear out, as opposed to a pre-Christmas one, is that you know the space you create won't be filled with more ‘stuff’ that you’ll struggle to find a home for in a few weeks time. So where should you st..
Buying children presents is never an easy task. Their fads and fancies change like the wind and what you thought was a dead cert often turns into a dead end…Months of Minions are suddenly forgotten for the new craze on the block and on it goes. Woe betide the chancer who gifts the wrong superhero without doing their research first. But there is one thing that ALL children love and that is something, anything, with their name emblazoned on it. There's nothing more thrilling to a child than ownership, that’s why we give you the option of adding names to our children’s beds as well a..
Did you know that we can survive three times as long without food as we can without sleep? It’s not something I’m about to set out to prove as I can’t last very long without either to be honest. Skipping breakfast following a fitful night’s sleep is a major game changer for me. Everyone breathes a sigh of relief once I’ve had my granola and 40 winks... That’s how essential sleep is. It sets the tone for your day, your week and - depending on how you sleep as a child - it can set the tone for your whole life according to Dr Hilary Jones. This week is Natio..
Choosing children’s bedroom furniture is no easy task. There is plenty to consider such as bed size, storage, plus design and colour too... At Little Lucy Willow we do give you lots to think about which can be overwhelming so perhaps it’s wise to make a wish list before you begin your search! Little Buoy Blue Collection BED SIZE All our beds can be made as singles, small doubles or doubles, depending on your available space. They also include a unique height adjustment feature, making them perfect for toddlers as well as for teens. On their lowest setting, the height from ..

At Little Lucy Willow, our children’s bedroom furniture collections are finished in a range of subtle pastel shades to suit any girl boy or teen.

Trampoline parks seems to be ‘springing’ up everywhere (pardon the pun) and as a consequence, my heart is spending an awful lot of time in my mouth these days. In my younger years there was no such thing of course. Jumping on mum and dad’s bed was the best we could muster, but blimey it was fun! Sneaking upstairs when no one was looking and bouncing til the bedding came off. We never did manage to put it back on properly. Sorry mum! The adrenalin was matched by precisely nothing, probably because it was strictly forbidden. Due to this ‘rule’ being ingrained in my h..
We love blaming our children for life’s little mishaps. When we’re late: “My neighbours must think I’m nuts, all I’ve done is shout ‘brush your teeth’ for the past hour!” When we lose the car keys: “I found them in the washing machine. Again.” When we need some new shoes (children do come in handy sometimes): “The little blighter drew a smiley face on my favourite ballet pumps!” Researchers have now discovered that we have a tendency to add our own sleep problems to that never ending list of blame - somewhat unfairly I might add. In a recent study, 100 childr..
During the past few days we’ve had a taste of some lovely warm weather and what might be in store for the summer months (with any luck). We’ve also been reminded what it’s like to feel the heat when we’re trying to get to sleep at night. And it’s not pretty... With this in mind, now could be the right time to think about changing your child’s bedding before that mercury rises! So pack away those winter duvets and create a cool and calming place for your little one to sleep. New sheets always make bed an inviting place to be, which is exactly what we want our..
If your teen happens to be taking important exams this year, you’re no doubt bracing yourself for a difficult few weeks. You might not be able to do their revision for your them, but you can make suggestions to ensure that exam time runs smoothly. Amongst the parenting mantra routinely trotted out, a good night’s sleep should be at the top of your list. And that goes for your little ones too. A recent study has revealed that if children get an extra 90 minutes of sleep during the week, their marks will improve. That’s just 18-19 minutes more rest from Sunday to Thursda..
