Not sure where to post this so putting it here.

Does anyone have any recommendations for unisex children's bedding?

I have been looking online but can't find any children's bedding that isn't strictly pink or blue.

I was hoping to find something that had a mix of colours, preferably big polka dots, I want it to be fun and colourful but not overtly girly. I wanted something a bit more stylish in DDs room while I still had a choice of colour schemes.

I have looked at Target, Kmart, Country Road, Adairs, H&M, Sheridan, Next UK, Pottery Barn, Marie Claire and I can't find anything!

I am happy to buy from overseas, or adult neutrals but I was hoping for something more fun.

Ikea has big polka dots at the moment.

Yeah, I was going to suggest Ikea too. I haven't found anything elsewhere that was unisex and kiddy.

I think Pillow Talk has a couple? They're perhaps not listed as 'children's' but they'd definitely be appropriate and fit what you're after?

This for example:

I got some gorgeous ones from Myer. I am not sure of the brand but they are a super soft blue stripe (with a white base). They have a really vintage feel to them. My DD and DS share a room and we had white linen on the beds but felt with white walls they blended. Happy with the super soft blue stripes  biggrin.gif

We have the Gro stay on bedding (you could use normal Doona inside)

I have found unisex children's bedding in Target and Ikea.

It's not for children specifically, but if you'd consider flannel (and I mean gorgeous US flannel, not crap Australian flannelette) try LL Bean.

You can buy fitted, flat, pillow cases and doona covers separately and make up your own set and the colour range is big. And they have some lovely plaid covers, patterned ones and even quilts.

American bed sizes are a tiny bit different, but I've never had trouble even with fitted sheets.

I've found them very reliable mail-order for buying from Australia. An order that once didn't show up they sent again in full and when the box eventually came they didn't ask for the original to be returned.

LLBean are wonderful to work with. I order clothes and when one pair of pants had a small fault they sent out a new pair and did not request faulty ones returned.

lsolaBella, I think that's probably because as a genuine mail-order company they live or die by doing properly by customers buying through the post. Another good thing on their site is the customer reviews - they've always been very accurate in my experience for describing how well the fit works on clothes etc.

If you're looking for online stores, I've used www.baby-bedding.com.au The bubba blue playtime set is fairly neutral.
