The Leander cot combines user-friendliness with a considered design; beautiful, simple and functional.

This is one piece that you have to feel touch and see to really appreciate the design. Uniquely, the bed can grow with the child, matching his or her change in needs as they progress from a baby to toddler and then older child. The Leander bed changes with the child and following the child’s development; from the baby age to the junior age.

The bed is five pieces of furniture in one design. It is built in parts that are assembled so the bed continues to suits a baby until the child is bigger with the junior extension taking the cot from 120 to 150cm

The round, soft forms make the Leander bed a wonderful piece of furniture to use.

The Leander cot has 5 configurations

  1. For infants, the cot base is positioned at the high setting as your baby is not yet mobile and does not need the high sides for protection.

  2. Once your baby is mobile, the base must be lowered so the high sides can keep him/her safe.

  3. As your baby becomes a toddler, the first adaptation takes place: one of the rail sides comes off. The familiar feeling of protection and safety provided by the high sides is maintained but this configuration allows your child to climb in and out by him-/herself.

  4. As your child develops further, the other three sides are removed (all together) and the cot is now a small bed without any signs that it was ever a cot.

  5. Your child’s continued growth dictates when the transition to the junior bed takes place. The timber extension pieces required and the extension mattress piece are bought separately. You can also add a junior bed guard.

Suitability: Birth to approximately 8 years old as a cot/junior bed

Can be used as: Cot or Junior Bed

Colours available: Birch
