Passionate companies often begin their journey in a garage. This is also where Peter Orinsky developed and built the very first children’s loft bed for his son Felix 31 years ago. It was very important for him to only use natural materials, provide strong safety features, clean workmanship as well as a high degree of flexibility to ensure long-term use. The sophisticated modular system has been so well received over the years that the successful family business Billi-Bolli emerged – complete with master craftsmen working in our very own Workshop in the east of Munich. By communicating closely with customers Billi-Bolli keeps refining and enhancing their children’s furniture range constantly. After all, satisfied parents and happy children are our greatest motivation. More about us…
You are welcome to visit us and take a close look at the kids’ furniture in Pastetten (A94 motorway, 20 minutes east of Munich) and also to receive a consultation in person. Please make an appointment before your visit!
If you live too far away, we can connect you with a customer family in your area who agreed to show their children’s bed to interested families upon request.
You can also visit our furniture display from the comfort of your home and get advice 🙂 You only need Skype (free) on your mobile phone or computer. Simply make an appointment for a non-binding consultation by video call!
We are also available for consultation by phone, of course: +49 8124 / 907 888 0
No, we do the consulting and sales for our beds ourselves. We know our beds and their many possibilities best, therefore we can also respond best to your ideas and personal wishes. Aside from that, you have a price advantage through our direct sales.
We are happy to give you Directions. Please make an appointment before your visit.
We do not sell pre-owned kids’ furniture ourselves, but we offer a second hand platform where our customers can sell their Billi-Bolli kids’ furniture. You’ll need a bit of luck because the second hand beds sell quickly.
We are in close, friendly contact with the developer of the Gullibo beds, Mr. Ulrich David. The company Gullibo itself no longer exists. The basic construction of our beds is similar to Gullibo, but they differ in details (e.g. height of the fall guard ⓘ, screws, slatted bed bases, Bed Drawers, handles are slightly different). Our accessories are therefore not compatible with Gullibo beds.
We offer beams without drillings that are cut according to your specifications if you intend to extend your Gullibo bed. You need to make the necessary drillings.
Unfortunately, we cannot offer consulting for Gullibo beds.
Safety is our top priority, which is why our most popular bed models carry the GS (“Tested Safety”) mark and they get regularly checked by TÜV Süd. All information can be found at Safety and Spacings.
Most of our customer requests are already met by our large variety of available default options. Drilling additional holes (e.g. to mount a helm to the short side) is no problem. If you have any additional special requests, please do not hesitate to contact us, we are happy to discuss the feasibility with you.
If we can fulfil your special request and have quoted you the price for it, you can add the special request to your shopping cart by using the special request item.
Alternatively, you can send us your filled shopping cart to discuss any special requests as a query beforehand, which will not trigger a binding purchase yet. To submit a query, check the respective box during checkout step 2 and specify your special request in the “Additional notes and requests” field. Then we will contact you to discuss the feasibility with you.
Children’s furniture from other manufacturers only seem similar at first glance. A closer look reveals that they differ greatly. For example, our kids’ beds excel in terms of safety and high fall protection. Part of the income is reserved for regular safety checks of many of our models by TÜV Süd and for their GS (“Tested Safety”) mark. For details, see Safety and Spacings.
However, there are many other differences, e.g. when it comes to stability, versatility and sustainability of our children’s furniture. With our workshop in Germany, we also promote domestic jobs. Our beds also have a very high resale value. And and and … – visit our home page to find out what makes Billi-Bolli unique and what sets us apart from all other suppliers.
You can order online: add the products of your choice to the shopping cart by simply clicking on the respective button on the product pages. If you want to customise a bed specifically to your needs, we recommend to first select the kids’ bed model, then to choose the accessories and after that the mattresses, if needed. In checkout step 2, which you can access via the shopping cart, enter your address details and select your preferred delivery and payment option. During checkout step 3 review your order details one more time and then complete your purchase by clicking the submit button.
Your shopping cart and your details will be saved so that you can carry out each individual step separately. Feel free to take breaks and continue at your convenience. In each checkout step, you will receive information about the next step. After submitting the order, you can pay directly via the payment method you selected. You will also receive further information and an overview by e-mail.
We will process your order personally, this way we can make sure that everything is definitely compatible. You also have the option to send us your shopping cart as an order query by checking the respective box during checkout step 2, which does not automatically trigger a binding purchase (e.g. if you still want to discuss special requests). Should you have any questions or concerns at any point during the online order process, you are welcome to contact us at any time.
You are also welcome to send us your order by e-mail (desired article and quantity).
Alternatively, you can also share your ideas with us and we will gladly put together and send you a non-committal customised quote. Just give us a call: 📞 +49 8124 / 907 888 0
Please visit Safety and Spacings.
If you order more than one bed or if you place an order together with friends at the same time (within 3 weeks), you receive a quantity discount on the entire order: 3 % for 2 beds or 5 % for 3 beds. You can choose multiple bed types as well as multiple delivery addresses. The desired delivery dates can also be up to 6 months apart. Simply specify the names and places of residence of the other buyers if applicable.
This is not necessary, since you will get an unlimited availability guarantee from us. You can use your storage space for something else. However, you would save on delivery costs if you order several items directly together with a bed (and in Germany as well as to Austria delivery costs may even be omitted, visit Delivery).
Many of our products are in stock and can be shipped or collected immediately. (→ What bed configurations are in stock?) Bed configurations not in stock will be manufactured individually according to each customer request. Thus, the delivery time depends upon the current workload of our workshop. If you select your desired configuration on the kids’ beds product pages, the respective delivery time will be displayed.
The following variants of different bed models are currently in stock and immediately available in limited quantities. If you prefer to pick up one of these variants at short notice, please call us in advance. Other variants will be custom-built for you after you place your order.Loft Bed Adjustable by Age
Information regarding delivery costs can be found at Delivery.
Within Germany and to Austria we always ship bed and extensive accessory orders via HERMES two-man handling right to the kid’s room (during the coronavirus pandemic, depending on the region: to the front door of your home). In certain individual cases (e.g. if you request a fixed date) we deliver the parcels in consultation with you on a pallet free kerbside by forwarding agent.
If the delivery address is in a different country, the order will always be delivered free kerbside.
Parcels can be carried by 1 – 2 people (no parcel weighs more than 30 kg).
We ship to every country worldwide. More information can be found at Delivery.
Our carrier takes care of customs clearance. You get an invoice without the German sales tax, however, you will have to pay Swiss VAT. The carrier will charge up to € 25 extra for issuing the invoice. For more information visit Delivery.
Of course! If you choose to pickup your goods directly from our workshop (25 km east of Munich), you will receive a 5 % discount on your total order, as long as the value of the goods exceeds € 500.
Our beds fit in just about any small car with a trunk lid, as long as the passenger seat can be folded flat. (Pictured is a Renault Twingo.)
If you live in the greater area of Munich, our workshop staff can do the assembly for you. However, customers rarely make use of this option since the assembly is not complicated.
Our kids’ beds grow with your kids. This means that over time you can assemble them at different heights without having to buy additional parts. Here you can find an overview of the possible assembly heights: ⓘ
To change the height of a sleeping level, the screws connecting the horizontal with the vertical beams must be detached first. Then the beams can be moved and secured at the new height using the grid of holes in the vertical beams. The base frame remains mounted.
One of our customers has created and uploaded a video in which he explains the conversion from assembly height 2 to height 3 in detail (German). Many thanks to the creator!

Written instructions for this conversion can be found at diybook.eu (German).
Absolutely, our modular system enables you – depending on the bed model you start with and the desired conversion model – to continue to use most of the original parts. This way you only have to buy the additionally required parts from us to transform your bed from one model to another. For the most popular conversion sets see Conversion & Expansion Sets. You can also receive an offer for other conversion options by sending us your request.
When you buy one of our beds, it may be worthwhile to think about the future: for example, if you intend to later mount an adjustable loft bed even higher than is already possible with the standard parts, you can order the bed with extra tall legs right from the start. This is not only cheaper but will make the conversion much easier since you will not need to replace the legs and the ladder at one point.
Yes, we just have to lower the swing beam ⓘ or you order the bed without the swing beam.
The assembling times vary; in about four hours it will surely be assembled. Depending on your skill and previous experience it may take you less time.
In general, we recommend the oil-wax treatment. The oil-wax we use saturates the wood fibres and prevents dirt from entering. The surface is slightly smoother and any dirt can be easily wiped off with a damp cloth. Those who have time and would like to cut costs can also apply the treatment on their own.
For a naturally-oiled bed, we use the oil-wax “Gormos” by the manufacturer Livos. It contains only pollutant-free substances and loses its smell shortly after application. If you opt for a honey colour oil-treatment, we use a product from Leinos.
We can send you the technical information sheet of the oil-wax we use. The ingredients are listed, so you can discuss them with your doctor and then decide.
Beech is the best wood for a colour varnish. In rare cases, small spots of discolouration can occur with pine, even several years later. The resin content of this wood type can cause this. With our water-based paints, discolourations cannot safely be ruled out and this does not constitute a reason for complaint. However, a discoloured spot can be easily painted over if necessary.
That’s no problem, just order the individual parts without surface treatment.
Due to the increased demand for beech and pine wood, we have been focusing on these two wood types since 2014. We therefore removed spruce wood as a regular option for our products.
If you have a Billi-Bolli bed made of spruce and would like to convert it or add accessories, we recommend that you order the additional parts in pine. When placing your order, let us know that your bed is made of spruce (e.g. via the “Additional notes and requests” field during checkout step 2). Then we will make sure to use only wood pieces for your products with the least reddish spots, which is characteristic of pine. Due to the overall somewhat darker appearance of pine, the parts will match your probably already darkened spruce bed discretely.
However, if you still want to have accessory or extension parts made of spruce, you can get them from us at the equivalent pine price plus 50 %. To order spruce, place the pine product variants into the shopping cart and check the box next to “Request quote without obligation” during checkout step 2. Please indicate in the “Additional notes and requests” field that you request spruce wood. Then you will receive an e-mail from us with the spruce prices and payment information. Alternatively, you are also welcome to send us an e-mail with your order requests. Please note that we do not have spruce wood in stock and that the delivery time is approx. 10 weeks.
For our children’s beds we recommend the use of mattresses with a minimum thickness of 10 cm. However, the thickness should not exceed 20 cm (for sleeping levels with high fall guard ⓘ) and 16 cm (for sleeping levels with basic fall guard ⓘ) respectively.
Our ecological mattresses by Prolana and these foam mattresses complement our kids’ beds perfectly.
The surface area of sleeping levels equipped with protection boards (the standard configuration for e.g. the kids’ loft bed and the upper sleeping levels of all bunk beds) is slightly narrower than specified because the boards ⓘ are attached on the inside. If you already have a mattress for children that you would like to continue to use, it needs to be somewhat flexible to fit. However, if you are intending to buy a new mattress anyway, we recommend that you order a 3 cm narrower version of the respective children or teen mattress (e.g. 87 × 200 cm instead of 90 × 200 cm) for a less tight fit with the protection boards and it will also make changing the sheets easier. For all the mattress sizes we offer, you have the option to choose the 3 cm narrower variant.
For more information on mattress sizes, visit Mattress Sizes.
If you buy a mattress from us, you can choose from any of the mattress sizes we offer for our kids’ beds.
If you already have a “Single” mattress (35 × 75 in, United Kingdom), it can be used with our 90 × 190 cm beds.
If you already have a “Twin” mattress (38 × 75 in, United States), it can be used with our 100 × 190 cm beds.
If you already have a “Double/Full” mattress (53 × 75 in), it can be used with our 140 × 190 cm beds.
Yes, we can customise our beds according to your child’s needs. Please do not hesitate to contact us. Then we can discuss necessary adaptations (such as stronger and/or higher gates, for example).
For safety reasons. An uninterrupted beam in the area of the ladder may look safer, but in our opinion, it is exactly the opposite. The very moment the kids reach the sleeping level, they still have to stoop under the beam. Getting out of the bed is also uncomfortable. You as a parent will also find it difficult to get into the bed, e.g. if you want to visit your child or change the sheets. Therefore, we think an unobstructed entry area is much safer.
Original quote from a customer on this subject: “What I dislike about the bed from the manufacturer XY is that the beam in the entry area is uninterrupted. Do you know whether or not I can just saw it off? Although I am no expert, I think it’s not really necessary for safety reasons, and your beds do not have such a beam either. I think it’s very impractical (especially for parents who also have to be in the bed frequently…) and rather dangerous.”
We think so, too. Get the saw out ;-)
If you still would like an uninterrupted beam in the entry area, you will receive it at no extra charge.
The spacing between the bars is 3 cm, making the slatted bed base suitable for any mattress.
Yes, visit Customising Options.
In our beds, you can use lightweight water mattresses of up to 200 kg. We recommend our special floor rather than a slatted bed base as a support surface (€ 150 for mattress widths 80, 90 or 100 cm, € 190 for 120 or 140 cm, oil-waxed + € 30).
Yes, that’s also possible.
