Every boy’s and every girl’s dream: a play bed with a slide! Up, down, up, down … until everyone, tired from all the sliding, falls right into their pillows. Even small morning grouches will find it easier to get up by sliding into the day. Our ↓ Slide for the Billi-Bolli loft bed is suitable for assembly heights 4 and 5 and protrudes approx. 190 cm into the room. For smaller children we have our ↓ Slide Ears for additional safety. If the room depth is not sufficient for a slide to be mounted directly to the bed or the play tower, our [#Z-RTT]↓ Slide Tower[/link] is often the solution.
A play bed with a slide can almost replace the playground – at least in bad weather – and sparks real joy among all children. Rushing down the slide is such a thrill that kids simply cannot get enough of all the sliding fun. This way they also get enough exercise in the children’s room and sleep well and tight at night.
The Slide protrudes approx. 190 cm (slide for assembly heights 4 and 5). If the room depth is not sufficient for a slide to be mounted directly to the bed or the play tower, our Slide Tower is often the solution.
Slide Ears can be fastened sideways, at the top of the slide, for additional protection. They are only required for very young children, who can hold onto them for extra support at the start.
You think the kids’ bedroom is too small to make your child’s slide dream a reality? Then take a look at our Billi-Bolli Slide Tower. It enables the installation of a slide even in rooms that would otherwise be unsuitable. Depending on the assembly height, the required room depth is reduced to 284 or 314 cm (Slide Tower 54 cm + Slide 160 or 190 cm + exit opening 70 cm). Your child can reach the slide via the Slide Tower, which is attached either to the bed or the Play Tower. You can see all the possible positions in the illustration.
The tower shares the same system of pre-drilled holes as the beds and is therefore easily adjustable in height. At night, a Slide Gate can secure the slide opening at the upper level.
Some children’s rooms are simply too small for a slide, unfortunately. In these cases, our Fireman’s Pole can be the best option, as it only takes up a bit of extra space.
Depth: 54.5 cm
Height: 196 cm
Slide tower shelf
Below the slide tower level, you can attach several shelves at a distance of 32.5 cm. So turn the slide tower into a shelf and use the space several times.

The beds suitable for slides
Like our bed models, a Billi-Bolli kids’ slide will wow you with its masterful workmanship, high-quality materials and all the available combination options. For it is possible to combine the slide with all our bed models, even with our Comfy Corner Beds, Bunk Beds or Both-Up Bunk Beds. As a prerequisite, the bed has to be mounted at assembly height 3 (54.6 cm) at least. This way the slide is suitable for children aged approx. 3.5 and above. With assembly height 6 (152.1 cm) and above it is no longer possible to attach a slide.
How to attach the slide to the bed
Generally, the slide can be attached to the same positions as the ladder. You can attach the slide in the middle of the short side of the bed, as well as to central and lateral positions on the long side. The Corner Bunk Bed and the corner variant of the Both-Up Bunk Beds are exceptions: Here you cannot instal the slide in the middle of the long side.
If you order a loft bed together with a matching kids’ slide, please state the desired slide position. This way we can manufacture an opening in the fall guard directly at the appropriate spot so that you can instal the slide there with ease. It is also possible to convert an existing bed.
Our children’s slides, just like the matching beds, can be designed and styled according to your own taste. Whether you prefer an untreated surface or a bright colour, we make sure to fulfil your request.
What to consider when buying a bed slide
A loft bed slide requires a bed to be mounted at assembly height 3 to 5. The room characteristics are also important for your purchase decision. With assembly heights 4 and 5 the slide protrudes approx. 190 cm into the room; at assembly height 3, it protrudes about 175 cm into the room. In both cases, you should plan an exit opening of at least 70 cm. In total, you need approx. 470 cm for a slide attached in the longitudinal direction (mattress length 200 cm, slide height 4 or 5) and 360 cm for a transversely attached slide (mattress width 90 cm, slide height 4 or 5). Less room depth is required for our Slide Tower. The tower is attached to the loft bed, the slide to the Slide Tower. When the Slide Tower is installed to the short side of the bed the required room depth is reduced to 320 cm. This mounting option is ideal for beds that are in the corners of rooms.
Is a bed slide safe for my child?
For Billi-Bolli, safety is priority. This is reflected in the quality of the material and workmanship of our products. For safe handling of the slide, please also follow our advice:
Since a slide can only be attached to loft beds, the assembly height of the bed should be appropriate for your child’s age as well as their stage of development.
You can further increase the safety of the slide by attaching slide ears.
Don’t let very young children play on the slide unsupervised.
At bedtime, the slide can be secured with a removable slide gate.
