Pillowfort: A big-kid bed for a still little boy


Hudson went from sleeping in a crib to a toddler bed, and just recently to sleeping in a twin. For the first time in a long while, I had to buy new sheets and found myself on a massive twin-bedding search. At first it was exciting: there are so many more options! But the sweetest ones were also very expensive (especially considering we wanted multiple sets, as we’re still frequently changing them in the middle of the night).

Just in time, Target released its Pillowfort collection, a huge new kids decor line. The sheet selection is awesome—fun, stylish, affordable… pretty much like everything else in the new line.

Here are some highlights from the whole collection and some photos of Hudson’s new big-kid bed (you can see his entire room, here). I love that we can lie down in the bigger bed together to read bedtime stories…



On his bed are the Forest Friends sheets from the Camp Kiddo Room, the Channel Stitch quilt and sham, and the Forest Plush blanket—which he said (seriously, I can’t make this stuff up) “will make me feel like I’m sleeping in the woods.”

A few other sets are on their way (like these dinosaur bones)—a lot of the collection is just getting to stores so ordered most of it online. Some of my other favorite patterns are the: Bow & Arrow BanditsFlamingosFloral FestivalFetching FloralsRustler’s Ranch; and Woodland Whimsy.

We also put up their new circular wire shelf, a shark head (festooned with paper-rings Hudson and I made together after watching the Mr. Rogers episode where he goes to see how construction paper is made), and let him pick up two new stuffed animals—a knit alligator and a fluffy bear. I of course ordered much more than what’s shown here.

The entire collection is so good. What’s that hashtag? “Target does it again,” indeed.


The new shelves and these industrial chairs are definite highlights for me. Shown in Marvelous Manor.


And how cute are those safari animals and that octopus? This whale might be my personal favorite. Shown in Discovery Den.


Here are some more of my favorite things:
