Posh Tots

I recently read this short article--2009: Year of Indulgence for Some
--that in summary says that luxury spending on children has not been affected by the recession. Posh Tots kept growing in 2009, for example. So I went exploring Posh Tots and decided to share their fairy tale related furniture. I've shared one before but here's a bunch.


Princess Castle Playhouse Loft Bed: This truly unique girls princess castle bed is every girls dream. The Princess Castle Loft bed is a bed, playhouse, storage in one with ingenious and discrete dresser drawer stairs, a fun slide, and large play space beneath, Armoire towers with shelving add even more storage space to this custom painted fairytale theme bed. The castle artwork is all hand-painted featuring beautiful garden details and faux finish. When disassembled the cottage fits through a 30"W or larger door frame. Bed size can be twin, full or queen.


La Belle Au Bois Dormant Coach: Your little sleeping beauty will dream of her prince as she sleeps away her enchantment in this exquisite coach. This hand-crafted piece is the most ornate and incredible creation we have found. The wheels of this carriage are solid cherry with white oak inserts that are spring loaded into their seats to form a heart shape. Each wheel features one hundred individual pieces of wood, contributing to the intricate design. The solid cherry quarter panels that define the contours of the pumpkin’s shape are fashioned from ¼" x ¾" rippings. Each piece has been hand tapered, beveled, and bent to create the desired shape and fit tightly together. The finished product has the natural beauty of varnished solid cherry but the delicately thin contoured panels have the durability of a boat hull. The carriage is draped with a petal-like canopy made in the likeness of a flower. All interior upholstery and drapery are made of 100% silk. (That's Sleeping Beauty Carriage to you non-French speakers.)


Princess Coach Iron Crib: Fit for a princess! Give your little one the very best with this enchanting and exquisite pumpkin coach. She will be sure to have sweet dreams as she drifts off in this fantasy iron crib adorned with vines and precious little birds perched on a floral wreath. Beautifully handcrafted by talented craftsmen to meet all current safety standards.


Woodland Princess Castle Bunk Bed: This Woodland Princess Castle is a combination bunk bed and playhouse. The design maximizes space in your child's room by giving her a play area and bed. The castle artwork is all hand-painted featuring the serenity of a forest with adorable animals throughout this realistic foliage on the castle grounds . Best of all the bed features a sturdy staircase with drawers and a waterfall slide exit. It is sure to delight your child and spark their imagination as they pretend they are in an enchanted forest made just for them. When disassembled the cottage fits through a 30"W or larger door frame. Bed size can be twin, full or queen. Artist can customize your cottage's colors to work with your existing room d├ęcor for an additional charge.


Majestic Carriage Crib: The Majestic Carriage Crib is the perfect place for your princess to catch up on her beauty rest. The carriage crib is constructed with a solid cedar frame and birch details. Features a front faux leather seat (not for sitting-max weight of front seat is 25 lbs), rear box designed as a changing table with an overall look of a luggage rack on the carriage. Round mattress included.


"Colbert Castle" Playhouse: The only thing missing is a moat! This fortress features a tower with a rock-climbing wall and an enclosed courtyard where the knight in shining armor can watch for fire-breathing dragons. Inside, a secret room is tucked away from view, accessed through a cleverly concealed opening in the fireplace. Surprise! The eyes in the portrait above the mantel slide open, so your child can slyly spy on anyone who dares to enter.


Fantasy Coach: Wave your magic wand and this carriage may appear to make your little princess' dreams come true. This fanciful coach bed is the most extraordinary children's bed we've ever seen. Handcrafted in England of wood and fiberglass, the oval shaped interior measures just over 6 ft. in diameter. Construction and delivery time on this piece is over 6 months. The bar is set with this magnificent piece; it simply has no equal outside of fairy tales.


Sullivan Clock: Time never stands still when you’re with Sully! With his hands on his hips and sass in his step, you’ll really want to rock around this clever clock. Crafted mostly from stained maple, Sullivan isn’t just a fabulous find but a true friend. (Can I admit this one is whimsical fun but still gives me the willies on some level? Perhaps ties into my hallucinatory nightmares when I was sick with high fevers as a child.)


Whimsical Shoe Armoire: Truly exquisite and unique! Your little one will be sure to use their imagination with this larger than life shoe armoire! Main shoe constructed from solid foam cast with hard shell. Windows and doors constructed from wood inserts. Features a cedar roof, large lower level door storage, two sliding window drawers and one window nightlight.


Fantasy Carriage Crib: Wave your magic wand and this carriage crib may appear to make your little princess' dreams come true. Truly exquisite! The carriage crib is constructed with a solid cedar frame and birch details. Features a front faux leather seat (not for sitting-max weight of front seat is 25 lbs), rear box designed as a changing table with an overall look of a luggage rack on the carriage. Round mattress included.

And no, I am not affiliated with Posh Tots. Wow, I would love that commission if I were! One sale would be more than a year's funding...

  1. Wow! I really love the designs of the cribs. Surely kids would love to sleep in this beds. Ive been looking for cradle mattress for my little girl. But now Im having doubt since I like the above designs.

  2. These are really pretty, but just make me think, "That's a really expensive playset/bed/crib/etc. for a child to grow out of in a few years." I love the Sullivan Clock and Whimsical Shoe Armoire, though. It would be quite fun to have "Sully" giving that pose in my living room.

  3. I too love the shoe and the clock! Those strike me as items that could have more longevity than the cribs and beds.

  4. I think the Sullivan Clock would actually frighten me... ;)

  5. Oh my goodness... I need that princess castle loft bed! I am amazed at how expensive this stuff is though. I guess I am going to have to take up carpentry to make it a DIY project. There's so much cute stuff on that site, but a majority of it seems really overpriced.
    Beautiful furniture pieces though. Thanks so much for showing me this.
    My poor husband better pray we never have a little girl or he will be in so much trouble.

  6. Those things look really nice, but I think kids can do without them. They can get just as much fun with the boxes those things came in.

  7. I would give anything for that clock. Family cow? Absolutely. Rugged good looks and charming personality? Youbetcha. Firstborn child? It's yours.

    Of course, this line of thinking *could* get me into some trouble...
