As far as kids’ house beds go, the brand new handcrafted Mokee Mini House is a gorgeous choice for little ones up to 8 years old. We take a closer look.
Meet the dreamiest kids’ house bed, the Mokee Mini House. True to its name, the simplistic house style structure of this children’s bed is handcrafted using FSC high-quality spruce wood by local Scandinavian craftsmen. Its sturdy construction makes for a cosy sanctuary for your toddler, and with so many options to accessorise the bed, with a canopy or even fairy lights it will be the perfect place to sleep, read, play and cuddle.
The bed measures 140 x 70 and will be ideal for the first few years of your child’s life. It’s officially categorised as 3+, but in my case, our son has recently escaped his cot early and will be two next month. With the use of bed guards, the Mokee Mini House is perfect for him. A week in, he’s loving bedtime and is sleeping right through.
The Mini House is available in three beautiful colours, White, Stone Teal and Dusty Aqua to suit any interior. Mokee has used tested and certified water-based paint so there’s no risk of nasty toxins.
My son’s room contains quite a bit of grey furniture, and being a bit bored with white, I decided to be daring and opted for Dusty Aqua to match his beautiful safari mural wallpaper. I have to say, I was thrilled with the finished results once the bed was assembled.
Mokee is a brand busy paying attention to every detail, and the refreshingly light and minimalistic structure of this kids’ house bed comes with easy to read instructions for a simple build.
The best news? The build really is super-easy in practice, especially in comparison to every other cot bed and bed we’ve put together. I say ‘we’ – my husband does most of the DIY in this house, and from start to finish, it took him approximately half an hour. There’s no drilling, everything’s already mapped out, so all you have to do is slot in and screw things together.
We love that Mokee offers their customers choice when it comes to their products. With the Mini House bed, you can choose from three mattress types depending on preference and budget. Select from a breathable foam mattress with an aloe vera infused quilted cover, the mid-range natural mattress with an organic four layer latex core or if you can afford something higher-end, the Ramon mattress is completely breathable and would make a fabulous choice.
If you’re like me and will do anything for extra storage in your toddler’s bedroom, then why not invest in an additional matching drawer for underneath the house bed? The drawer measures H 18cm, L 139cm and W 72cm and slots neatly underneath for a really nifty space for bedsheets or clothes and toys. We’ll probably order the drawer next payday, but for now, his travel cot slots nicely underneath, as there is a decent amount of room even without a drawer in place to put things in.
