Tween Bedding - Tween Comforters and Bed Sets
Choosing ‘tween bedding is difficult because you want something that will grow with them.
Meanwhile, ‘Tweens love decorating their room with their favorite celebrity or cartoon character and those favorites fade quickly as a child ages.
By definition, ‘tweens range in age from 8 to 12. Right now, ‘tweens are infatuated with Spongebob, Transformers, Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus/Hannah Montana, High School Musical and the Jonas Brothers. However, parents realize those trends will quickly fade out in a year or two when a ‘tween becomes a teenager. You do not want to spend a fortune on bedding that you’ll be replacing in the near future.
Trendy Alternatives that Offer Perfect Solutions
Instead of picking ‘tween bedding with the fad of the month, look for bright colors that tie into the theme. By choosing solids or patterns for your ‘tween, you can still add accessories bearing the celebrities image, but when the fad ends, you simply remove a few pictures, possibly a lamp and the bedding for your ‘tween is still fashionable for the new craze.
For example, Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus has a large ‘tween following. The colors most associated with her products and shows tend to be bright, girly colors like teal, purple and lavender. Her name serves as her logo and it is lavender and gold. Use these colors to capture the essence of Hannah Montana. Perhaps a lavender bedspread with a glittery gold lampshade.
If your ‘tween boy adores Spongebob, choose bright blues and yellows for ‘tween bedding. Accent the room with Spongebob Lego sets, Spongebob posters and maybe a Spongebob rug. Once he outgrows Spongebob, Lego generally have great resale value, rugs and posters can be handed down to another fan. You do not need to spend more money on bedding, so you save money.
Moving from ‘Tween to Teen
The best bedding options for teenagers tend to be vibrant colors. By choosing bright colors and patterns when your child is a ‘tween, your child will easily transition his or her room in the teenage years. Only a few additions will be necessary. You’ve saved money on teen and ‘tween bedding and taught your child a valuable lesson in economics.
