If only this spaceship bed came in a size thatâs suitable for adults, too. Itâs hard not to be jealous of kids who get to sleep in what feels like their own personal astronaut pod called the âDeepspace Defender,â complete with electroluminescent light panels controlled with an electric membrane keypad.
This fantasy murphy bed closes up nice and compact during the day, and at night, the one-hand crank mechanism that lowers the mattress to the floor is easy enough for kids to use themselves. Two âengine podsâ on either side of the bed offer four shelves each to store toys, clothes and books.
“Specialty children’s bed makers Fable Bedworks created the ultimate bed for mini-astronauts to dream of their future planetary conquests. The ‘Deepspace Defender’ bed features a counter balanced twin bed that raises and lowers with a control switch, built-in lights controlled by an electronic membrane keypad and hidden shelving on either side of the bed. At a price of $14,300, the bed is expensive enough to prepare parents for the cost of space camp and the necessary education in preparation for astronaut training.”
The manufacturer, FableBedworks, sells this incredible bed for kids and a number of other designs – including matching outer space bedding – on Etsy and their website. The fairytale-themed Pennyâs Palace bed features a drawbridge and low-voltage LED lighting, and the Dragonslayer Stronghold bed is designed to look like a real castle. These three beds range in cost from $7,100 to $8,300 and fit a standard twin-size mattress, so technically, you could probably get away with snagging one for yourself if you sleep alone.
