It’s winter over here in Europe – so what better theme than polar bears! Cute, cuddly and perfect for boys and girls alike, polar bears make a great unisex theme for nurseries and kids rooms, whatever the season.
We have hunted down our favourite polar bear finds, and here are our top ten:
1. Mr Sleepy Bear by Boo & Bear
Top of our list (pictured above) is this snuggly polar bear cushion by Australian brand Boo & Bear. Mr Sleepy Bear is made using soft merino wool felt with embroidered details, such as those adorable rosy cheeks and sleepy eyes!
2. Polar Bear Bedding Set by Lulu and Nat, and 3. Sleeping Bear Storage Bag by Tellkiddo, available at Bobby Rabbit.
This soft cotton polar bear bedding set is available at Bobby Rabbit and is hand-printed all over with hundreds of mama and baby polar bears!

6. Felt Polar Bear Toy by Fink Toys on Etsy
Speaking of felt, these fun animals by US brand Fink Toys are the perfect cuddle companions! This cute polar bear is just one of many crazy characters in the collection, each one made using specially selected one-of-a-kind fabrics.
7. Polar Bear Night Light by Petit Monkey
This sleepy polar bear night light is the latest creation of Petit Monkey in The Netherlands, and is sure to bring a smile to your little one’s face come bedtime! With rosy cheeks and sleepy eyes, he’ll give off a cosy warm glow when it gets dark, and help your child drift off to the land of nod.
8. Mimi Bear Tray by Bopomofoshop
(OK, Mimi may not be a polar bear but we’ll include him anyway!) Designed in Singapore and made from durable, food-safe melamine that is both child-safe and practical, he’ll look so cute on the table at snack-time.

This stunning polar bear poster designed by Ingela P. Arrhenius for OMM Design and available at Bobby Rabbit will add a touch of Scandi-chic to your little one’s room (or to any room of your home). We love the contrasting white and green colours, all in keeping with Ingela’s well-loved bold and retro style.
10. Snow Bear Print by Munks and Me
Last but not least, British brand Munks and Me have created this snow bear print that is available in A3, A4 or 50x70cm size. Together with a whole collection of fun animal friends to mix and match together, he’ll make a sweet addition to any nursery or bedroom.
So, whether it’s spring, summer, autumn or winter, polar bears are a fun way to accessorise your child’s room, especially if you prefer more neutral colours. From cushions to prints, teddies to tableware, they will add character, fun and cuteness aplenty to your little one’s space.
