Calling all mini space adventurers… Here at Mother&Baby, we've made it our mission to find the best space duvet covers. Which means kids can have their own intergalactic adventure.

But before that, when it comes to getting children to go to sleep, having the right decor can play a huge part in how long it takes for them to drift off. Did you know it takes approximately 10 to 20 minutes for children to fall asleep?

If your child hasn't burnt up all their energy or doesn't enjoy the space they're in, they're less likely to settle down. Forget dreaming about a galaxy far, far away.

Whether you're thinking about overhauling the nursery or want to add some accessories to bring the stars to your child's room, we've found the perfect solution. Counting down the best space duvet covers that are out of this world.

Choosing the best duvets for toddlers is hard, what your child has an interest in can change month to month or even week to week. Completely decking out any kid's room is a big commitment. And that's why opting for a duvet cover can be the best compromise.

Best space duvet cover

Taking on a DIY project to turn your nursery into the perfect toddler hangout? All you need is a fresh lick of paint, cardboard or wood to build a rocket and this fun outer space bedding set.

Review: "I love this bedding set, it fits perfectly on my little boy's cot duvet and pillow. It's soft and washes great, the colours don't fade. There is no loose string, which I have noticed in some of the other beddings I have bought."

Best budget space duvet cover

Turning your child's bedroom into an intergalactic space doesn't have to cost the earth. Thanks to this cheap Rocket Single Duvet Cover and Pillowcase Set, you can transport their room for under £10.

Review: "My son absolutely loves his rocket cover 🚀. It fits perfectly into a standard single quilt. Good quality and great value for money."

Best glow-in-the-dark space duvet cover

Who doesn't love a glow-in-the-dark product? If you haven't already bought a night light, this duvet cover set is a brilliant way to help kids overcome a fear of the dark. Plus, you can encourage your children to have a space mission with their toys if they wake up before it gets light outside.

Review: "This is a nice little set with great vibrant colours, and it does glow in the dark. I am not sure why other reviews say they don't glow. It just needs a bit of charge of direct light for a while, like any other glow in the dark item and when you switch the light off and your eyes get used to the darkness you will see the stars and certain other pictures glow quite brightly actually. Not all the objects glow, but a great number do as expected.

"My 3-year-old loves this set and wants to use it all the time, so it's been washed a good number of times and the colours have not faded. I can recommend it."

Best solar system space duvet cover

From Neptune to Saturn and Mars, if your little one is obsessed with the mystery in the sky, then they will be over the moon with this solar system cover. Made from 50 per cent cotton and 50 per cent polyester, this bedding washes up nicely. However, the best thing about it is you can choose a single or double duvet.

Review: "My lad has got into Dr Who and Space (solar system), so with him moving into a bigger bedroom we wanted to treat him, so we got him this duvet set, he said "it's the best thing ever", you can't say much more than that. He like that it tells you the planet and the order, it's soft and very comfy according to my lad, to me it was well worth the money and gets thumbs up from my lad."

Best Peppa Pig space duvet cover

Any mini Peppa Pig fans will love their new duvet cover featuring their favourite characters, including Peppa Pig and George Pig. During storytime, encourage your little one's imaginations by telling them tales about the character's fun galaxy adventures.

Review: "Our three-year-old grandson loves this bedding set. Easy to wash and quick to dry. Seems to have faded quickly but my grandsons not bothered 🧒😁."

Available in pink, grey or blue, this star duvet cover is a nod to the space theme. Does your toddler share a room with an older sibling? If the answer is yes, then this is a good option that isn't too young or too old if you want them to have matching cover sets.
