For the cave-builder, cuddle bunny, or someone who simply needs a bit more storage space. It’s not without reason that the mid sleeper bed is one of the most popular loft beds, you can find. And with a height of 105-114 cm, it is still easy for you to reach the mattress when it is time to change the sheets.
One of the advantages of the mid sleeper bed is that the cave or playground underneath the bed is at a child’s height – meaning this space is entirely your child’s space. Here, your child can find some peace from the surrounding world and immerse themselves in play or cozy relaxation.
There are a lot of advantages to choosing a mid sleeper bed. Having to climb up and down from the bed can be good for your child's motor development, as they learn to control their body better. Adapting challenging physical activities at home is important for your child to develop motor skills (Danish Health Authorities).
With a Hoppekids mid sleeper bed, you have the opportunity to use the space under the bed for everything from storage to cozy dens that you can decorate with cushions, fairy lights, and more. You can also choose a play curtain for the mid sleeper bed, so the area under the bed is covered from the rest of the room.
The great thing about most Hoppekids' mid sleeper beds is that they are modular. A modular bed means you can change the bed into bunk beds, house beds, and loft beds so that the bed can be used for several years and by several children.
Eco-labeled children's beds

When can you use a mid sleeper bed?
When to choose a mid sleeper bed for your child or whether to have a loft bed depends a lot on your child.
We recommend our mid sleeper beds for children aged 4-5 - but some choose to take in the mid sleeper bed even earlier, which is of course also possible. Take a look at your child and use that to decide whether or not a mid sleeper bed is right for them.
To get used to the height of the bed, you may want to start by sleeping on a mattress under the bed. Then your child can play in the bed during the day and get used to the height. In no time at all, your child will be completely comfortable moving around in bed, and you can move the sleeping space up in the bed.
What mattress for a mid sleeper bed?
When choosing a mattress for your mid sleeper bed, you need to consider whether it is an ECO Dream or an ECO Luxury bed. If you have chosen a bed from the ECO Dream series, we recommend that the mattress is MAX. 9 cm high according to the safety standard and for the ECO Luxury beds we recommend that the mattress is MAX. 12 cm high.
Once you've worked out how high you want the mattress to be, it's time to work out what type of mattress you want.
