Celebrate Twenty Five Years With Friends … and the launch of the new officially licensed bedding range.
This year, 2019, Friends celebrates it’s twenty fifth anniversary.
The pilot was aired on the 22nd of September 1994 in the Uk and after ten series of this iconic show millions of people tuned in to see the final episode which was shown here on the 28th of May 2004.
We all had a Friends character that we wanted to be and one that we thought we would most suit being with. For those of us who waited with baited breath to see the conclusion of each cliff hanger the last series was bitter sweet. Many of the loose ends were tied up but ultimately it meant there would be no more Friends.
Since then, however, it has become one of the most popular repeated shows on television and new generations are watching the six Friends with equal enthusiasm.
Obviously there are a whole host of fun facts attached to the show and it’s actors but here are a few of my favourites …
Eagle eyed viewers will have noticed that Monica’s apartment was originally number 5 and then became number 20 which had a knock on effect with the number of Joey and Chandler’s apartment number.
The young actor who played Ross’s son Ben in a handful of episodes, Cole Sprouse, later starred in The Suite Life With Zack And Cody with his twin brother and also by himself in Riverdale as Jughead Jones.
Courteney Cox was expecting her baby, Coco, during the filming of the final series but where as Lisa Kudrow’s pregnancy had been written in to the story line Courteney’s was not as the the show had already established that Chandler and Monica could not have their own child.
The show had such pulling power that it attracted many famous people to star in cameo roles some of who are listed here … Christina Applegate, Hank Azaria, Alec Baldwin, George Clooney, Jennifer Coolidge, Billy Crystal, Danny Devito, Morgan Fairchild, Jeff Goldblum, Jennifer Grey, Chissie Hynde, Hugh Laurie, Jon Lovitz, Elle Macpherson, Gary Oldman, Sean Penn, Brad Pitt, Freddie Prince Jr, Julia Roberts, Paul Rudd, Winona Ryder, Susan Sarandon, Jennifer Saunders, Tom Selleck, Charlie Sheen, Brooke Shields, Ben Stiller, Kathleen Turner, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Robin Williams, Bruce Willis, Reese Witherspoon and Noah Wyle.
Not forgetting Elliott Gould who had a permanent role as Ross and Monica’s father.
In addition the actor who played the father of Rachel’s boyfriend Joshua, in the episode when she accidentally ends up going to dinner in her underwear, is actually Matthew Perry’s dad John Bennett Perry.
So this is “The One With The 25th Anniversary Bedding Launch”.
We are joining in the anniversary fun with new officially licensed Friends bedding available now from our online shop in two styles and two sizes (single and double).

As you can imagine we get to see quite a lot of bedding here at Children’s Rooms but every now and again something creates a real stir in the office … this is one of those times.
There is obviously a huge choice of unicorn bedding on the market so it’s fab to see a version that’s just that bit different … and the fun doesn’t stop with this legendary creature as the powerful T Rex bursts on to the scene in vibrant lime green.
If you have a fan of the undersea world in your household then why not go for the shark with it’s striking flash of red and bold blue?
Or the friendly narwhal which is often dubbed the unicorn of the sea. These magnificent porpoises live in Arctic coastal waters but our version is a little easier to find. The narwhal is particularly suitable for younger children and will give you a great starting point if you like to make up your own bedtime stories.
Finally we have the teddy bear and the cat which are two favourites.
The cat has been cleverly designed to make it fit in to a young teenager’s room as well as being suitable for a smaller child while the charming simplicity of the teddy bear gives it classic appeal.
Each pillow case is shaped to provide detail specific to the creature it represents and four of the duvet covers have additional accents, like feet or a tail. The reverse of each duvet cover features a repeat pattern appropriate to the over all design.
You can find out more about all six of our NEW shaped single bedding designs HERE.
We all love to dream and anyone who has ever watched a Disney film will know that dreams can come true. For any little Disney Princesses we think they would love to sleep under one of these fabulous double duvet covers from the ‘Dreams’ range.
There are three of the famous princesses on the front – Cinderella in her famous puffed sleeved blue ball gown, Sleeping Beauty holding a rose whilst dressed up in her stunning pink creation and Rapunzel with her fabulous golden locks flowing down her back and her gorgeous purple gown, all stood in front of the famous castle, fluffy clouds above them and flowers underfoot. There are even butterflies fluttering around the girls.
One of the best things about this particular bedding is it’s reversible. If your youngster has a change of mind you can flip it over and have the smaller images on the top – two duvets in one!
The fabric is 100% microfibre and it’s a rotary pattern, meaning it’s cut from a larger sheet of material, which is reflected in the price.
Sing along now ‘Dreams, can come true, they can happen to you … la la la.
Well, it’s been a busy few weeks here at Children’s Rooms HQ and we’ve got so much new stock to share with you the only thing we could think of to let you know all about it was to blog about it!
First up are these fabulous new bedside lamps which will suit any age from baby through to adult (I wouldn’t mind some of these myself).
In three colours, baby pink, powder blue and neutral beige and all have a dedicated design on the shade. The lamp base is in white and has a classic shape making it look very elegant and maybe a little like an old fashioned candlestick (not that we’re old enough to remember those days).
All three have an energy efficient LED bulb is enclosed so no prying little fingers can get into it and it will last for up to ten years or 50,000 hours of light – that’s a lot of bedtime reading!
The pink has little white butterflies on the shade, the blue has white sailing boats and the beige has dazzling little white stars dotted all over which co-ordinate perfectly with the bases.
They come with a power pack and have a rocker on / off switch, so no hands going inside or messing with plugs and comply with all regulations and standards.
Suitable for use in a nursery for babies, young kids, teenagers and even adults!
We like to keep up with the latest trends here at CRHQ and with the new Superman film recently released we’ve tried our hardest (well our head buyers Kev and Dave did) to source up to date and relevant products to be ‘bang on trend’ as my teenagers tell me is the phrase I should use(?) We also have a whole load of other Superhero products, we’re not just about Superman here.
So, to start off we have this fabulous Spiderman City range of bedroom furnishings and bedroom accessories. The City bedding comes in single and double, the curtains are in both 54″ and 72″ drop, a super soft fleece blanket and a gorgeous character cushion. These are the ‘Ultimate Spiderman’ as that’s what it says printed on the bedding! The duvets sets measure 135 x 200 cms for the single and 200 x 200 cms for the double, matching pillowcases are included and you get one with a single and two with the double. The material is 100% microfibre which means they are durable and can be machine washed and of course the most famous spider in the world is heavily featured both swinging through the dark city using his super strength web and on his powerful motorbike which you can almost hear roaring the graphics are that good. The words ‘thwipp’ and ‘the ultimate spiderman’ appear on both the pillowcase and the bottom of the duvet cover. The co-ordinating curtains again are all about the web throwing with Spiderman in various poses against a web covered blue background and the same wording as on the duvet covers. The fleece blanket measures 120 x 150 cms and is lovely and soft and has the ultimate superhero in a single, large image this is made from 100% polyester and like most of our range can easily be maintained to keep it looking great. To top it all off there is the ‘city’ cushion, shaped as Spiderman’s head which measures 40 cm in height x 27 cm width. To add extra theming to your Spidey fans bedroom we also have lightshades, lamps, stickers and bins, in fact everything you’d need and a little bit more.
The Avengers ‘Team’ 3D bedding set which includes 3D glasses, from Marvel Comics, feature the superhero’s Thor, Captain America, Hulk and Iron Man in a fabulous panel print of all four of them in fighting mode with a matching pillowcase and the words ‘Avengers Assemble’ printed near the bottom of the cover – this is a single bed set and will fit any standard single size bed. For double beds we have a bright and vibrant rotary patterned bed set featuring the same four heros with two co-ordinating pillowcases. Matching curtains are again in a rotary pattern and each curtain measures 66″ x 72″ are made from 100% polyester and have pencil pleat tops. All other accessories can be found here. Marvel comics – the greatest publisher of Superhero’s – have a fabulous bedding set which are the brightest and most lively duvets I have probably ever seen. With a mix of their comic’s covers highlighting some of their biggest stars with X-Men, the Fantastic Four, Thor, Hulk and many, many more. These are available in both a single and double bed set which includes a duvet cover and pillowcase (two pillowcases with the double).
All these are selling really, really quickly.
