Dinky Duvalay Review & Competition



Noah is now three years old and for the past six months or so has been sleeping in his toddler bed. As soon as we switched him from cot to bed we introduced a pillow and duvet full time and said goodbye to our trusty and much loved sleeping bags. It took a while for him to adjust from one to the other but with potty training just around the corner we knew it was a switch we had to make sooner rather than later. Imagine trying to get a toddler on the potty at night when zipped up in a sleeping bag! That would be hard difficult! 

Last month I was asked if I'd like to work with a brand called Duvalay. In case you aren't familiar with them Duvalay is an award winning company who specialise in numerous sleep products. One of the most popular being the famous Duvalay sleeping bag which is award winning and has sold over a million pieces world wide!  

Duvalay have taken the technology from their past products and created a brand new one called the Dinky Duvalay. This is a mattress, duvet and pillow all in one design which is aimed at children between the ages of 2 - 8 years.


Features:
Memory foam mattress which moulds to support the body.
Made with a hollow fibre duvet and washable percale poly cotton cover.

Rolls up, stores and is transported easily. 
Perfect for a mini bed within a bed. 
Ideal for sleepovers and camping with the family.
Can be opened from the left or right hand side. 
Helps prevent children from falling out of bed.
Includes a matching pillow and pillowcase. 


My initial impressions of the Dinky Duvalay were all extremely positive. My favourite aspect being the animal design, as not only is it unisex but I also noted how it would also suit most bedroom styles and is colourful without being too busy. Noah really enjoys to point out all the different animals and make all the different animal sounds. I found that the quality of the memory foam mattress, duvet and pillow were very good too.

Noah was really excited to try out the Dinky Duvalay and we decided to try it out first at nap time. I did wonder how he would get on with it as he is a creature of habit and likes his usual comforts but he was fine. Once the excitement of having a "new bed" subsided he quickly went to sleep and looked super comfortable.

Overall we really rate the Dinky Duvalay however there are a few things that I'd like to mention which I think could be changed or slightly improved. The first one being that the pillow is quite small and I found that Noah would roll of it or get frustrated with it. It's quite a lot smaller than the pillow he usually uses, perhaps a full sized and thinner one would be more suitable for us. I also found that the duvet slipped down a lot inside the sheet but when making the bed in the morning I could quickly correct that. 


Although Noah has gone back to using his regular bedding we will still be using the Dinky Duvalay for sleepovers and for our annual trips away in the UK as it really is a fantastic product. Prices for the Dinky Duvalay start at £89.95 which I think is reasonable for the level of quality you receive.
