Just before Christmas I was sent a Bundle Bed to use and review. We’ve used it a few times now so what do we think?
What is a Bundle Bed?
A Bundle Bed described simply is a clever, roll-out bed with a self-inflating mattress (so no need for a foot pump!); fully waterproof protective outer la
My first thoughts on the Bundle Bed
My first thoughts on the Bundle Bed was that it was solid and very well made. It looked like a quality piece of kit. It felt quite heavy though and I did query whether I would want to take it camping due to the weight. Fine if you are camping next to the car but possibly not right for festival camping where you have to carry everything.
Using the Bundle Bed
The first time we used the Bundle Bed was just before Christmas and we were trying to squeeze 6 kids and 4 adults into four bedrooms with not a lot of floor space once you have a bed in each room. The Bundle Bed was perfect for this as it was significantly smaller than a blow up mattress would have been but perfectly big enough for the kids. It was also a bit more malleable and moveable.
I rolled it out and it took me a little while to work out how to make it self inflate but I got there, a little blow into it helped wonders.
The 15 tog duvet was deemed to be cosy by both girls that tried it and it is plenty warm enough for use inside, we haven’t had the opportunity to try it outside yet.The pillow is also comfortable and I love that it is included as it’s one of the things I always forget to pack if we are visiting people and need to take extra beds.

Mini Travellers Verdict on the Bundle Bed
We love it. Yes it’s expensive but it is a quality piece of kit and if you are regularly campers, regularly stay at other peoples houses and need to take extra beds (we do have to do this as a family of 5) or have kids to stay over a lot and don’t have a lot of space to keep an extra bed or the energy to keep putting extra blow up mattresses up, then this is the perfect piece of kit for you!
