Are canopy beds safe for kids?
Canopy beds are a safe and fun way to brighten up your children's sleeping space or play area. As long as the canopy is securely fastened with no risk of falling, they pose very little risk to children who are old enough to sleep in a bed - we do not recommend this product for cots however. In order to increase safety, you can opt for canopies that are made of flame resistant materials, and avoid any canopies that have attachments or decorations that could be a choking hazard such as plastic beads.
What age is a bed canopy for?
There is no upper age limit on bed canopies as you can always change the canopy according to your child's changing style and preferences. However, we would never recommend placing a canopy over a cot or young toddler bed, as the loose fabric could pose a trip or suffocation hazard. As a general rule, children under the age of four should not sleep under a canopy.
