Aside from ‘vegetables’, and maybe ‘bathtime', there is no word more universally despised by kids than ‘educational’. But since there’s no age too young to start prepping them to get into a good university, these bedsheets provide a valuable geology lesson every time your kid heads off to bed.
Available in twin or full-queen sizes for $189 (£122) and $219 (£141), respectively, the multi-layer sheets use a variety of different fabrics — like cotton percale, linen, gauze, and corduroy — to illustrate the different layers of the Earth’s crust. So even if they’re too young to read the embroidered labels on the quilt, kids will still get the idea that their planet is made up of many different materials.
The bedding’s quilt even includes embroidered constellations at the top, so your kids can learn about astronomy as well. And there are matching accessories like a shovel pillow, and a tiny plush volcano showing exactly how an eruption occurs. Now where are the bedsheets that will teach our kids the joys of coding?
