Rating: *****
The Duggar family of Arkansas has (currently) 10 boys and 9 girls. Boys and girls each sharing one room.

The boys’ room has/had 4 bunk beds and 2 single beds. The pic 2 is from s10e9 (other location ?) and I thought there might be selfmade 3 story beds. I haven’t found better pics (showing all beds at once) and the bedrooms probably changed after each child. Pic 1 is from a room tour having fewer bunk beds. They also have a slide to a lower room.

I think only one bunk bed in the girls’ room. Some girls sharing one bed.

Better pics also showing the girls’ room is at


The series is also now shown on German TLC (starting from season 8).

The most boys in one room I previously had was 6 (and 5 girls).

I somehow don’t like much these rooms. They are more like halls or dorms. Most kids are also very young (in early seasons). But I have to recheck more episodes.

I think the 2nd largest family I have is 15 kids in La gran familia, then 13 kids in “Der Typ, 13 Kinder & Ich” and some with 12 kids. More kids only in dorms or at camp or hospital. I also have several kids sharing one single bed. And several boys and girls both sharing a room unlike here. There are also large families with some grown up kids. Update: 18 kids (including teens) in Yours, Mine & Ours.

Not sure if I need more categories.

Rating 5 for now.
