Leander cot & Bed
The Leander Cot & Bed is different from any other cot on the market. It has been designed with the child’s perspective in mind, and the result is a stunning looking cot which converts into a junior bed via stages. The junior bed concept is not new, but the fact that this junior bed doesn't have the high cot ends is new, and that this junior bed is low to the ground to suit small legs is simply brilliant.

A growing child's dream
The Leander Cot & Bed takes the tradition of Scandinavian craftsmanship and design to a new level of excellence. With its oval shape, in European beech, the cot is a sheer pleasure to the eye. It is easy to assemble and use, and all materials are high quality and safe.
Stig Leander, the designer, says: ”I wanted to create a child’s cot as a natural extension to the idea behind the Leander Cradle. It annoys me that children’s cots are so traditional, not taking the needs of the children into account. That’s why I wanted to combine practicality of use with simple design. We develop our products with a strong focus on the little one's need for comfort and an understanding of the world seen from his/her perspective."
The Leander Cot & Bed transforms from cot to junior bed in 5 stages. For infants, the cot base is positioned at the high setting to protect the parents’ back. Once baby is mobile the base is postioned in the low setting to ensure that baby is safe. As baby turns into a toddler with greater freedom to move, the first Leander Cot & Bed adaptation takes place: one of the cot sides come off. This stage maintains the familiar feeling of security of the high sides, but the child can now climb in and out by him-/herself. As the child develops further, the other three sides are removed (all together) and the cot is now a small bed.
Your child’s growing length will tell you when to change to the junior bed - 150cm long. The extension pieces (incl. mattress piece) required are part of your initial purchase, so there is no more to buy (unless you want the guard featured in the picture below. The junior bed guard is available as an accessory.)
The Leander Cot & Bed has received several awards in Europe but designer Stig Leander doesn’t rest on his laurels. He continues to finetune the design and improve the cot where possible as well as working on expanding the range.
- Nominated for the “Danish Innovation and Design” award 2004
- Winner of “Best Baby Product of the Year” in the Netherlands, 2006
- The bed is represented in the international design book “Toys for Kids” published by TECTUM Publishers.
