Welcome to Allkids, which has been online since 1999. We started purely as an information site for new mothers, and started adding stuff for kids in 2001. I've now completely revamped the site and made it much simpler for you to find the best buys in children's furniture, beds, storage, accessories, toys and outdoor play.     

Now the days are getting colder and shorter, and given the challenging times we currently face, many people are focussing on Christmas, and how to make the best of this situation and make it as festive as possible.

Here at Children's Rooms we're finding that our Christmas bedding range is proving more popular than ever. I have featured 2 of our most popular designs - It's Christmas and our best seller, Jolly Santa, but we usually do have about 50 designs across our toddler, single, double and king size xmas duvet cover sets. Thankfully we stocked up last year as the supply of all bedding is caught up in the pandemic, with factories across the globe struggling to manufacture, and container ships idling in ports waiting to be unloaded.

While you're over at Children's Rooms check out our huge range of kids bedding - we've now condensed all the duvets, from toddlers to super king onto one page to make your search easier.

Monkey Bar Dome Frame

I had this for many years for my granddaughters - they loved it. Climb on it, climb in it, throw a sheet over it and it's a den, play target ball games with the frame - brilliant!

This does look complicated, but it is easy to assemble and once assembled it is very strong. Ours lasted for years and remained sturdy throughout.  My granddaughters had hours and hours of fun, and it is so versatile - apart from climbing and dangling from it, they used it as a den and it's great for ball games as well.

Water Bottle Spirals

I love these and they're so easy to make and you can hang them anywhere - make a spiral tree in the garden.

You will need:

  • dry water bottles
  • permanent marker pens
  • scissors

Make sure that the bottles are totally dry, inside and out. When you've removed the base and the top of the bottle, you could use a hairdryer - but not too hot or it could melt the plastic.
Once dry let yours and your children's creative juices flow and get colouring - with stripes, downward and horizontal, stars, circles, bands etc.
Let the ink dry and then start to cut slowly, from the bottom, untill you have your spiral. Gently tugging them to expand slightly - hang and enjoy.

Some of my favourite memories are cuddling down with my children and now my grandchildren to watch a good family film together.

Today, more than ever, with the current situation where families have to spend so much time together without any outside influences, it's important to chill out, settle down and spend time together without any stress - and there's nothing better than a good, gripping or funny family movie, which you can all watch together.

Over the years I've created and added to my  Family movies page and have recently updated it to include many more films from over the last 40 years - some great family films.

All the films on this page are either U, PG, or 12As - so you can watch knowing there will be no inappropriate content.
