Budget single mattress makes it easy to give your children a good night’s sleep. And beds are important ingredients in fairytales, though their characters don’t benefit from a memory foam mattress. A number of fairytales have made the bed an important character. In Goldilocks, the bears’ beds are simple and reflective of each bears character – a large, un-comfy one for the father, a small, soft one for the mother and a tiny, cosy one for the baby. The part of the story in which Goldilocks falls asleep in the baby bear’s bed appeals to our hidden desire to be safe and comfortable.
Sleeping Beauty’s bed is a true piece of princess furniture. Well she does have to spend 100 years sleeping in it while waiting for Prince Charming to come and kiss her.
Appropriately a four-poster, it is hung with lovely fabrics and fitted with lovely duvets and cushions to keep the princess comfortable. For many women, this early experience of the sheer luxury of a princess bed shapes their ideas of the perfect bed later in life.
