At HipKids, we believe little people should be surrounded by furniture that fits their energetic lifestyle and ergonomic needs, and that’s why we stock a wide range of products designed especially for children.
Adult furniture is not designed with children in mind, and experts believe its use can lead to them developing poor posture later in life, so our furniture is not only designed to be fun, but supportive for growing bodies as well.
We source our childrens furniture from top manufacturers all over the world and we personally choose each piece to ensure it fulfils our high standards of durability, quality and aesthetic appeal. Our range includes a large selection of kids table and chairs, kids outdoor furniture, toy boxes, bookshelves, recliner chairs, tree hangers, beds, bean bags, activity craft tables, sofa chairs and teepees. Most of our furniture is available in a variety of colours including blue, red, pink and classic white, so each piece can transition seamlessly into your existing décor.
Whether you’re looking for outdoor or indoor childrens furniture eg.new bed for a fairy princess, a bookshelf for your imaginative reader or a teepee for a little adventurer, HipKids is guaranteed to have something that fits your needs. So purchase online and take advantage of our Australia-wide shipping, or head into our East Melbourne showroom to try out the range in person.
6 Types of Furniture Every Kids' Room Needs
An average, Australian families spend more than $50 per week on household furnishings. Most of that goes toward ensuring that our living spaces, master bedrooms, and master baths are decked out in the latest decor.
Yet, have you considered that your kids' bedrooms or playroom might need a little sprucing up, too?
In your quest to create the ultimate bedroom or playroom checklist, don't forget to include your littlest dwellers! Today, we're sharing six types of furniture that can transform their spaces into the pint-sized oasis they deserve.
Ready to learn more? Let's get started!
From princess tea parties to epic race car battles, there are some games that are just more fun to play off the floor. That's when a simple table and chair set comes in handy!
When they're little, this is a great space to spread out and organise toys. As they grow, your little ones will appreciate the hard surface to work on schoolwork, explore colouring books or practice their drawing.
Come snack time, you'll also appreciate an extra surface you can easily wipe clean. If they're going to sit at the kid's table, why not make it a stylish one?
With four birch wood chairs and a smooth white top, our set features a contemporary design that complements any room. It's ideal for two-year-olds to six-year-olds who need an extra play space.
Are your kids a little bigger? Do they need some extra room to spread out? Check out our activity table! Featuring built-in storage and a removable/reversible chalkboard top, it's perfect for arts and crafts, handwriting practice, and more.
Set one up today and let your kids' imagination take care of the rest!
Want to give your children a cozy and comfortable spot where they can relax, read a book, listen to music, or watch television? A bean bag chair fits the bill!
Featuring a built-in bottle holder, reinforced seams, and extra roomy seating, our bean bag chair covers are truly the lap of luxury for your tyke!
More comfortable than a wooden chair while still offering plenty of support, these water-resistant outer covers are made of durable, PVC-coated canvas. This means the chair can travel from indoors to outdoors with ease!
Set one up by their bed as a designated reading corner, bring it into the living room for family movie night, and then take it outdoors for s'mores by the campfire! You can find beans to fill them at any major retail centre, and our safety zipper system helps ensure the filling process is a cinch.
In addition to our one-seater option, we also offer a longer two-seater one, too! It's perfect for siblings to cuddle up on or a great spot to spread out solo! With four colours to choose from, you're sure to find one that your kids adore.
Graduating from a baby crib or a toddler bed to a bonafide big kid bed is a major deal. Most kids don't make the transition until the age of three, though some are ready before and after that birthday.
When they've passed the potty-training milestone and made it all the way to this step, it's time to celebrate! Rather than buying a generic version from a big-box store, consider investing in a piece that's a little more special.
A top-quality bed will last your tot all the way through childhood, making bedtime something to look forward to every night. Our single upholstered beds are quick to assemble and ooze comfort at every turn.
Devoid of sharp corners or edges, you'll find only softness here. For the upholstery, you can choose between a natural linen look or white PU leather, and all models include a middle support, sturdy timber frame, and a slat base.
Add some luxuriously soft bedding and make turndown something that your kids can look forward to. As they grow, you can make the move to a double upholstered bed to give them a little more space to spread out and relax!
They might enjoy playing in their room, but most kids still seek out a separate space where they can feel secure and make special memories.
This is exactly the kind of exploration and creativity that a play teepee allows!
Whether they're telling spooky stories by nightlight or laughing with their best pals, a teepee is a perfect spot for your kids to escape from the world and create a tiny world that's all their own. There's even a fun side window that's sure to elicit many surprises and giggles!
Another benefit of having a teepee? As any parent understands, the tiniest people can have some of the biggest emotions. To this end, you can stock yours full of comforting, sensory-rich items that turn it into a quiet zone where they can find personal calm and refuge.
Of course, if you're going to install a teepee in their room, you might as well make it a fantastic and beautiful one! All of our teepees feature hand-painted timber poles and fanciful bead detailing. Available in grey or pink, the cotton/poly drill fabric is durable and washable, while convenient velcro fasteners allow quick entry and exit.
Bonus additions include a floor mat for extra comfort, as well as a matching travel bag. Pack it up and take it on your next sleepover for an instant hit that everyone will love!
Research shows that reading to your kids when they're little, and alongside them as they grow, can improve their literacy, vocabulary and numeracy skills for life.
While you want to do your part to jumpstart their academic journey, you still don't want their room cluttered with books strewn all about, alongside all of their other toys. It won't take long to lose your very best titles in a sea of plastic.
Instead, give their books a place of honour in their very own bookcase caddy!
Displaying each title prominently for easy retrieval, our caddy features a minimalist design and tucks neatly into any space. From hardback classics to their favourite fiction paperbacks, you can store it all. And, as your children grow, it will also hold their beloved hobby magazines.
Sitting only 45cm off the floor, it's the perfect height for tiny hands to find their favourites, all on their own! Its compact shape also makes it a breeze to stash in the tightest corner or move around the room.
The solid wood legs and smooth white finish of this caddy make it a natural fit in any bedroom decor, as well. You can even personalise it for an extra-special touch! This is a simple accessory that can make a world of difference and encourage a lifelong habit with rewards that stretch into the future.
Don't forget your bigger kids! As they grow from their baby chairs to a big-kid desk, they need a seat that supports them and makes study time as fun as possible.
Rather than asking them to do their schoolwork on their bed or at the kitchen table, it's helpful to designate a special study zone that makes them want to hit the books.
Our comfy computer desk chairs feature a modern design that makes them a great addition to any bedroom or home office. If any spills or messes occur, the PU leatherette fabric wipes down with ease, so snacking and studying can still go hand-in-hand!
Available in a range of stunning neutral colours, these will carry your children all the way from five-year-old to their teenage study days. The adjustable seats include foam cushioning that will still retain its shape years down the road. Talk about a return on your investment!
As adults, it's all too easy to think of ways to fill our own living spaces with special touches and meaningful details. We pore over our own bedroom checklist, but at the same time, tend to look past the littlest spaces in our house.
However, we believe that these rooms, filled with the tiniest feet, hold the biggest potential.
That's why we've made it our mission to help you make them as beautiful and functional as possible. Check out our entire shop of kids' products, from toy kitchens to dollhouses, sure to delight the most discerning, delightful little minds.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact us today. We'll help you stock their rooms and their lives with delights they'll cherish.
