Giant SleepoverDo you remember when a sleepover was a friend coming over, chatting and laughing for a while, some snacks, a movie and then lights out? Well, 'sleepover' now has a 'giant' meaning.Worlds Apart

The Giant Sleepover, taking place across the world next weekend from Saturday 19th June, will see children aged 5-16 years in registered youth groups and schools, having fun and raising money as they face a number of exciting fundraising challenges. If your child is registered and doesn't yet have a bed to sleep in, by purchasing a ReadyBed from the Big Red Warehouse, which you can find through the link on the website, you will ensure a donation is given to the Giant Sleepover Charities. In all, over 20,000 children are registered to take part including a scout party who will be sleeping at Hamley's toy shop in London, in the world's biggest ever ReadyBed measuring 17.5 meters wide!

But if you're not registered to take part in The Giant Sleepover this year, why not join in by having a sleepover of your own? ReadyBeds from Worlds Apart are a sleepover essential and mums will be pleased because there's no fussing over spare beds and covers as the ReadyBed is a clever all-in-one solution comprising pillow, mattress and duvet.

The ReadyBed has a built in cover that can be removed and simply popped in the washing machine. The bed also come with a handy pump so it can be inflated in minutes, plus its own carry case for easy transportation which is handy for when travelling to a friend's place for a sleepover at any time!

The Giant Sleepover has grown from just one school's commitment in 2003 to a well established annual event and what hopes to be a Guinness World Record this year.
