When I first saw the advert for these I thought "why would anyone in their right mind buy a dog bed for their child?". I then watched a video about Northumbria University Nursery who uses them and it really changed my mind. Sure, these Dream Coracles are very reminiscent of a canine pit BUT my son Daniel rolls about the floor with his sookie (comfort) blanket dosing and I think he could use one of these.
Check out the Dream Coracle, here.
Well I did think that until I saw the price...over £255. My other half would think I had lost the plot. Can I can get away with buying a fancy dog bed for much less? Would that be okay? I don't want to mock this product though, as I do think that the idea is really good.
Perhaps, we will just settle for a padded giant cushion with lots of blankets for now. The concept is great and I like the freedom of letting your child decide when he or she is ready for little nap. I can't help thinking that they might decide they don't want a nap at all and end up stroppy and difficult.
What's your thoughts on the Dream Coracle? Is it too much like a bed for the dog? Or is it a really good idea? Let us know over on our Facebook page.
