Throwbeds from Hedgehouse

At the start of the summer a friend of mine in the US wrote to tell me about the beautiful throwbeds from a brand called Hedgehouse. I had never heard of this brand before, but one glance at the website and I was obsessed! The towels, the pillows… and most of all, the throwbeds! How perfect are they for sleepovers and travel?!

I ordered a few cotton shirt cloth throwbeds knowing that we’d be staying with family for a couple months and that there would be times and places where beds would be limited. And I’m so glad  I did — we’ve used these beds so much in the past few weeks. The girls even planned an outdoor slumber party on the deck of our beach house (see photos above)… but ended up coming inside, tugging their throwbeds behind them, when it got dark outside.  ; )

The beds are 100% machine washable – both the inserts and the covers, and they roll up with a tie closure and fit inside a carry-case so they’re easy to transport from one place to the other (or keep in your cupboard for sleepovers!).

They look terrific, do you know the type of the material they are made of ?

I do not think that the products of that brand are actually worth their money. There are high-quality travel towels available at outdoor shops that are much, much cheaper.

hey tanya; id love to hear of the cheaper alternatives that tick all the boxes of style, quality, wear, durability and comfort. I love hedgehouse and their linen towels are so versatile for picnics, towels, throws and sarongs. the beds are filled with down and are luxuriously comfortable. As with all products; shoes to sweaters to bags; you can get fantastic low cost items and very high priced items that seem overpriced to some, but to others worth every penny. We have some cheaper towels that haven’t withstood the hard work we have put them through! the washing and such. I find hedgehouse to be really good quality. And I’m not paid to say this; I have paid for all the items I own! as with everything its all down to a matter of personal choice.

I love the idea of those throw beds, but my goodness, they are $275 each! That’s $825 for the three in the pictures. And to think of little kids tugging them around — I don’t think I would be able to trust them. The travel towels are linen and $120 each, gulp.

I understand the idea of paying more for style, quality, wear, durability and comfort, as Lisa mentions above, but we’re a single income family with three little kids, and we could do so much with $825. Even with $360! Our choices so far have ticked the boxes for quality, wear, durability and comfort, though I guess we won’t be as stylish. That will have to wait for later in life, I suppose : )

They look lovely – what are they made of? I agree with the other posters that they do seem quite expensive but I imagine they are a hit with the kids who don’t have to brace themselves to splash out nearing $1000 for temporary bedding — I assume you then need a duvet or similar over the top and this bit is only the bit you sleep on? I thought the pink and white one on the website did look lovely though. One day!

The average family would not spend that much money for temporary bedding, not realistic, once again.

This site doesn’t pretend to be a ‘budget’ blog. Thank you.

This site doesn’t pretend to be a budget blog, it doesn’t even say that many of the feedbacks are for products you do not have to pay for, as companies send them to you to be put on the blog for advert purposes…it’s all about fair play really, if somebody points out that stuff is too expensive ( see the post about photo collage) it is quite snob to make such a sharp remark. People might afford stuff or might not, or might even choose to not spend hardly earned money on something that is ridiculous expensive, even if they can afford it, don’t you think Emelie? Thank you

I totally agree with Isabella’s comment ! This blog appears to be for happy few only !

I love this blog, the book recommendations are fab so are the recipes and craft ideas! ✨ but have to agree there are a lot of items which are not realistic for most families – which I think is such a shame. It seems that some of the messages are conflicting too – putting an emphasis on encouraging your children be wonderfully creative and not have too many toys, that a simple life enriched by experiences is important (which of course is true), not watching much TV etc…less is more, but at $275 a pop it looks like more is more…
Emily’s comment was pretty offensive, I don’t think anyone was suggesting a budget website, but perhaps something a little more inclusive – for those who don’t want Hello Kitty plastered on their kids t-shirts 🙈 and want to support local businesses- but also don’t want to spend £100 ++
Just my thoughts, hope you don’t mind me sharing them X

Hey, guys! Just wanted to point out that the Emily above is not the Emilie from Babyccino 😉 That is actually me – sorry for the name confusion. Emilie/ Emily was a very popular name in my generation… x

Hi Natasha,
Thanks for the comment. The cushions aren’t from Hedgehouse. I believe we got them from Anthropologie earlier this year. x

Hi thanks for sharing they look amazing.
Maybe you could also recommend a similar product when you share about a high priced object. Just a thought ; )

Thanks so much for all the discussion on this product. We wanted to address the comments about price. At Babyccino, we seek out and write about the best products offered for children and families. Every product we recommend has been tried and tested by one of our editors and has been reviewed for quality and design above all else. We also take into account where and how a product is made. Most of the brands we represent are independently owned, small businesses, founded by passionate individuals trying to make better products. Often they cannot compete on price with big, corporate retailers, but we believe they offer a superior product.
Thanks for reading and for your feedback.
