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).

It was in 1943 when Rev Wilbert Vere Awdry created the stories of Thomas the Tank Engine, simply to cheer up his son, Christopher who was suffering from Measles. Today, Thomas the Tank Engine is a multi-million pound franchise which covers TV series, films, books and DVD’s. The range of merchandise available spans everything from Kids Duvets to Spaghetti Shapes.
In the early 2000’s the National Autistic Society, published a survey which reported that Thomas the Tank Engine and associated characters are valuable figures to autistic children, helping them understand emotions, colour sand words. A previous study, again carried out by NAS found that children with autism and Asperger’s have a strong relationship with Thomas, much more so than any other children’s character.
Thanks to easy to understand stories, clear narration and of course, the fact that all kids love trains – has helped cement Thomas the Tank Engine as a classic and important children’s character. Not surprisingly, this fact has not passed us by, and we have worked hard to bring to market a wide range of Thomas the Tank Engine Bedding & Bedroom Accessories. So without further ado, we will highlight some of the products you can use to inexpensively theme an entire Thomas the Tank Engine Bedroom.
Thomas the Tank Engine Bedding
Of course, the Kids Bedding Staple, themed duvets. At Children’s Rooms we have more than eight unique Thomas the Tank Engine Duvets in stock – some of which are in toddler sizes. One of our bestselling duvets is the Thomas the Tank Adventure bedding.
Various views of Thomas adorn the front of the duvet, whilst passport stamps surround him – mapping out where Thomas has visited in his adventure of over half a century. This bedding is perfect for kids with a sense of adventure.
Thomas the Tank Engine Bean Bags
Providing the perfect seating option for relaxing, socialising, reading or watching TV – Bean Bags are incredibly useful things to have in a house full of children. Often, we use them at larger family functions such as Christmas, where they can be brought downstairs and plonked in a corner! We have a couple of Thomas the Tank Engine designs in stock, and the most popular within the range is the ‘Power Bean Bag’
Thomas the Tank Engine Curtains
Creating the perfect focal point for any bedroom, a set of themed curtains really do tie the different aspects of the room together. Our brightly coloured Thomas & Friends Curtains, feature Thomas in both front facing and side profiles. These curtains also feature logos and railway signs, blue sided squares bring the designs together.

Peppa Pig first hit our TV screens back in 2004 and most of us with kids will have a love hate relationship with the little piggy who isn’t always the best behaved example for our children to follow however she has become a massive hit showing in no less than 180 countries across the world.
Actress Harley Bird started voicing Peppa when she was just five years old and has stuck with the pig ever since.
Peppa Pig merchandise is one of our officially licensed characters and as such it is released in themed collections. Once each production run has been sold it has all gone so you might think that it would be expensive to create a themed room but you can actually come in under £100 and here’s how …
Peppa Pig Bedding
The range includes single duvets and toddler bedding size too. If you keep your eyes open the occasional double duvet is released. With summer on the horizon and the weather warming up, if only a little here in the chilly North of England, it would be rude not to feature the Nautical range which features Peppa and her brother George enjoying the seaside. This particular Peppa Pig single bedding is a rotary design with a repeat pattern which keeps the cost down to £13.95.
Peppa Pig Fleece Blanket
A fleece blanket is extremely versatile. It is obviously intended as an additional layer for your child’s bed on a cold night but if it’s too warm for a duvet and your little one still wants some sort of cover you can use it instead of the heavy, warmer bedding.
But there are many other uses too … use it to snuggle in front of the TV or sit on it in the garden for a picnic. We have issues in our car because the adults are too warm and the kids are too cold so their favourite Peppa Pig fleece blanket solves this and means we don’t have to roast with the heating on high. I’ve even used one draped over my shoulders when I’ve been working in the office on a cold day. A snip at £9.95 you can probably think of a few more things to use it for too.
Peppa Pig Curtains – 54” drop
What a burst of colour this pair of curtains will provide in your themed room. They are not lined and so if your child is a light sleeper a pack of linings would be wise however if you have roller blinds you won’t need to do this. The fun patchwork design features Peppa and her brother George, along with Suzy Sheep, having a day out at the beach. Add them to your basket for £19.95.
Peppa Pig Bean Bag
We love bean bags in our house. They are portable, comfortable and versatile. They have been known to go on sleepovers to grandma’s house and they find their way out in to the garden when the weather is kind. This bright and cheerful version from Peppa’s nautical range is £14.95 and will be well worth the investment. All of our bean bags are filled with fire retardant beads.
Peppa Pig Wall Stickers
When it comes to wall stickers I’m one of their biggest fans. We painted our daughter’s bedroom once in six years but transformed it three times over that period using self adhesive, removable stickers.
This pack of Peppa Pig wall stickers is especially fun because for just £14.95 you get thirty nine elements to create your scene with.
Remember to wait thirty days after you have decorated the walls for the paint to dry out before you apply any stickers or Peppa could slide off.
Peppa Pig Kool Lamp
Kool Lamps are indeed very cool.
The light bulb is fully enclosed so you child can’t touch it and the lamp doesn’t get hot so if small fingers do get curious they won’t get hurt. There’s also a rocker switch to turn the lamp on and off so that you don’t need to touch the plug to operate it.
Peppa fans will love this version of the bedside lamp as the famous pig is very much the star of the show here. This is the final addition to your shopping list at £17.95.
In Conclusion …
So there we have it five Peppa Pig themed products which come in at £91.70. If your budget is tighter you could pick out the statement pieces from the list, the bedding and curtains, and choose either the lamp or the wall stickers to add to them.
If you have any questions about any of these products please get in touch and we will be more than happy to help. Remember, we also stock a wider range of Kids Bedding & Bedroom Accessories including bedding suitable for teenagers.
