No more sleepless nights
If your child is woken at night by covers slipping off their bed, help is at hand. Tuck n’ Snug is a new bedding product that keeps your child cosy, warm and secure all night long.
Created by a mum who wanted to solve her own children’s sleep problems, Tuck n’ Snug offers a simple solution to an age-old problem – bed covers slipping off during the night, resulting in children calling for Mummy or Daddy to tuck them back in.
Sleep deprivation is a major problem for many young children and their parents, with side effects that can include tiredness, reduced concentration and behavioural problems. If you dream of making it through the night without being woken by a cry for help, Tuck n’ Snug is for you!
“What an amazing idea! My son loves it – in his own words, ‘I sleep really well in it, it’s really snuggly’. Already recommending to friends.”

Tuck n’ Snug was born when mum of two Annabel Anderson decided to devise her own solution to her children’s sleepless nights.
“My five-year-old son Oliver used to be a particularly bad sleeper, who would wake about six times a night,” Annabel, 46, says. “I used to spend a lot of time in his room in the small hours, trying to get him back to sleep and as a result I was exhausted! I met many other parents at school whose children were often awake for half the night and the whole family was tired as a consequence.”
Annabel found that Oliver’s pillow would end up resting on his head and waking him up, while his sister Isobel, seven, would throw off her duvet and feel cold. After trying a variety of products without success, Annabel developed Tuck n’ Snug.
Unlike other products that are purely designed to keep children in bed, Tuck n’ Snug is a duvet cover and pillow case that secures the duvet and pillow using fabric flaps that are tucked under the mattress. These are then concealed by the duvet cover, so it looks like any other bedding set. There are no zips, buttons or Velcro – your child is free to move around and get in and out of bed, so they feel comfy and unrestricted.
“The Tuck n’ Snug duvet cover has been a big hit! My daughter was complaining that her sleeping bag was too hot, but now she can get in and out of bed as she pleases and push the duvet down if she is too warm – and no waking up Mummy! Genius – well done!
Mrs F Richardson, West Sussex
Tuck n’ Snug is the first business venture for Annabel, a PR professional who took a career break to start her family. Already her sleep-saving product is proving to be a huge success, with reviewers describing the Tuck n’ Snug concept as “genius”.
“This product really works and now my children are huge sleepers!” Annabel says. “Sleep deprivation is a terrible problem for children and their parents, but Tuck n’ Snug is a simple, effective solution to a problem experienced by countless families.”
Lisa Artis, spokesperson for the Sleep Council, says: “A restful night’s sleep is essential for the health and wellbeing of both children and adults. During the night we enter a number of sleep cycles, each comprising four stages and lasting around 1.5 hours in total. It is essential that we experience all four stages in order to feel rested. Sleep that is constantly interrupted is not restful and can lead to health problems.”
Available in two gorgeous designs, the first limited edition sets feature a pair of fun characters that children will love: Peanuts the Puppy and Kitty the Kitten. Suitable for children aged 12 months and over, each set comes in toddler bed and single bed sizes, so you can make sure your child continues to enjoy restful nights as they grow.
Tuck n’ Snug is made in Britain and is an attractive product that adds charm to any child’s bedroom – as well as restful nights!
