Slumbersac Long Sleeve Sleeping Bags

Slumbersac Long Sleeve Sleeping Bags

Following on from my post about themed kids bedrooms we have been thinking a lot about how to help our children sleep well, especially with the clocks changing and the colder nights. When I was sent a Slumbersac Long Sleeve Sleeping Bag to review I was intrigued to see how a sleeping bag that reminded me of when the children were babies could help them sleep now as children.

The Slumbersac Long Sleeve Sleeping Bags are basically the same as those lovely sleeping bags you lovingly put your baby to sleep in when they are tiny. They are just now enhanced with the exact thing I always wished they had – sleeves.

LissyLou is possibly the wriggliest sleeper I’ve ever known, she honestly loses her covers within seconds of being in bed. Which means that even if we put them back on when we go to bed she is sure to wake in the night cold and without covers.

She was thrilled to try the Slumbersac Long Sleeve Sleeping Bags. She loved the pony design and instantly was excited to try out the bag, The quality of the Slumbersac Long Sleeve Sleeping Bag is very good. Warm, cosy and padded. A perfect recipe for a good nights sleep. I think for the coldest nights I would put her a blanket over the top to keep her hands warm but I am sure it would keep her body toasty.

So far she has become very attached to her Slumbersac Long Sleeve Sleeping Bag, she insists on taking it to Grandmas at the weekend and was most distressed when we wouldn’t allow her to bring it on holiday this week.

I’d highly recommend the Slumbersac Long Sleeve Sleeping Bags, so much so that we will be getting one for C too, he has fallen in love with his sisters bag and is desperate for his own too! They retail at around the £30 mark which seems reasonable for the quality and useability, they come in sizes 12-36mths, 3-6yrs and 6-10yrs so they will last a good length of time too.

Now that we’re well into the autumn season, it’s time to make our homes feel like a real nest for the cold and dark winter months. And as such, it’s the bedroom that I think needs the most care and attention.

Making your kids’ bedrooms a warm and inviting place to be is key to helping them feel cosy in the run-up to Christmas. And I think it’s always a fun idea to try a few themed looks, and here are some interesting ones that I found online.

Sports bedrooms

Sports Bedroom


Most children will go through a sporting phase at some point in their lives. It’s a great way for them to learn to socialise with other kids, and it’s also a good way for them to let off steam!

So if you’re looking to indulge their inner football fan, why not have a go at the football-themed bedroom like the one above? It makes great use of some football-themed cushions that you can find at We Love Linen, and I particularly love the fun football pitch floor, complete with its own little penalty area!

If your children are growing up and are seeking something a little more mature, then a bedroom that uses nautical motifs is a subtle way to introduce some fun sea themes.

This child’s bedroom above uses soft blues, natural wood tones, and whitewashed wooden slats to make it feel like you’re aboard a ship! And if you’re looking to increase the feel of being in a ship’s cabin, then one of Bedstar’s triple bunk-beds are not only a great space saving bedroom solution, but they can also provide extra space for additional shipmates too!

World Traveller


All kids like to learn about the wonderful world that we live in, and maps are increasingly a chic part of any home aesthetic.

So if you’re looking to help your little ones with their geography lessons, you could always think about installing an immersive world map wall mural like in the children’s bedroom above. Not only does it provide a rich and iconic backdrop to the room, but it can help provide some exotic holiday ideas too!


Contemporary girl’s bedroom

And finally, when decorating a little girl’s bedroom, I find it’s always a real task trying to make it fun and girly, but at the same time not to make it overly stereotyped.

But this room in the picture above gets just about the right mix of soft pink touches, and a nice and chic contemporary feel through the ombre effect of the whites, pinks, and rich reds. And of course, the compulsory teddy bears make it so much cosier!

Head down to The Old Brickworks Brewers Fayre in Drighlington this Halloween for stacks of spooky fun in the onsite playgym. We’ve been to the Old Brickworks before and enjoyed good quality food at good prices and a fun play gym. But specifically there are a selection of great fun activities this week for half term and of course Halloween.

The playgym has been suitably decked out in scary ghoulish decorations. The staff have lovingly created a spooky theme that my children loved.

This half term there will be spooky craft sessions each day. Another added element to keep the kids busy while you relax.

The kids will love the Halloween Disco.

Just remember that you can’t reserve tables in the playgym and it does get busy so get there in plenty of time and reserve a table just outside the playgym, so you are close by should the kids need you!

The kids love Brewers Fayre and we will no doubt be back soon!

We received a meal in exchange for this review.
