Last time I shared an update about our 4 year-old’s cottagecore bedroom changes (and her sweet, sage green painted bedside tables makeover), I had a bunch of questions about where I found her peacock lamps.

They work so perfectly with Regan’s chinoiserie wallpaper covered with birds, butterflies, and peacocks, and luckily I scooped up the cute lights originally for the girls’ playroom a couple of years ago.

Animal lamps aren’t typically something I’d choose for other rooms of our house, but I absolutely love them to add a whimsical touch to kids’ rooms! So I thought it would help to round up a bunch of them in one place if you’re decorating a bedroom or playroom for your child.

Animal Lamps for Kids’ Bedrooms

When it comes to decorating a child’s space, there are many options to choose from. One popular option is the use of animal-themed decor.

Animal lamps are a great addition to any child’s bedroom as they provide both functional lighting and a fun design element!

Here are over 40 whimsical animal lamps for ideas to add to your child’s bedroom with designer styles and budget-friendly look-a-likes.

1. Dog Lamp

A dog lamp is a sweet addition to any child’s bedroom. There are so many out there in a variety of colors and designs, so you can choose one that matches your child’s personality and bedroom decor.

2. Rabbit Lamp

I love an adorable rabbit lamp in a kids room, especially in a nursery. Choose one with an ornate detail like a scalloped lamp shade or a funny design like this bunny lamp that looks like it’s wearing the shade.

3. Bear Lamp

A bear lamp is a cozy addition to any child’s bedroom. It provides a soft and warm light that is perfect for creating a relaxing atmosphere. Bear lamps come in a variety of designs, from realistic to cartoonish, so you can choose one that matches your child’s personality.

When we were decorating my cousin’s little boy woodland nursery, her number one request for us was to integrate a sentimental bear carving into the decor. So we chose a forest mural wallpaper, forest animal art prints, and a lamp tucked beside the bear carving to go with it.

4. Giraffe Lamp

Choose a giraffe lamp for an African safari theme in a kids’ room. For a little touch of glam or drama, use a lamp with a metallic finish or a colorful shade.

5. Bird Lamp

Depending on your child’s preferences, use a lamp with delicate songbirds, a regal peacock, a funny flamingo, or a mysterious owl. (Harry Potter theme, anyone?) There are so many different bird lamp styles out there!

6. Other Animal Lamp Styles

Incorporate an elephant lamp for a classic look in a little boy’s room. Add a llama lamp with a fringe shade for a cheeky look in a teen girl’s room. Light up a coastal style nursery with a driftwood whale lamp.

There are so many adorable lighting possibilities for kids’ rooms that allow you to add a little extra statement.

DIY Lighting Ideas

You could even attempt to make your own animal table lamp by combining this DIY horse statuette craft with a small thrift store table lamp. (Maybe even glue a small horn to its head to make it a unicorn.)

I’m sure later on when we jump into our playroom makeover later this year, you’ll see another animal style kids lamp or two. They’re just too cute to resist! Do you have one in your house?
