When we decided to move my son from the nursery to his 'big boy' room at 18 months of age we also decided that we would buy him a new bed. He was in a cot bed so we could have simply converted this to a bed but as we were decorating his room with vehicles and has other items of furniture from the vehicle range, we chose to buy him this bed to go with it.
The bed is specifically for toddlers so is smaller than a single bed. It cost us around £70 to buy but we had Tesco Clubcard vouchers which were on a double up promotion at the time so we managed to save ourselves a bit of money. There is a range of matching furniture available - toy box, toy drawers, bed side table and a table and stools.
The bed has pictures of various vehicles - fire engine, truck and tractor - on the end of the bed and the headboard, as pictured. The top of the bed is part enclosed with wooden sides to act as bed guards. It was relatively easy to put it all together - it took my husband around 40 minutes and the instructions were fairly self explanatory. Once put together, it feels sturdy and supportive and of decent quality. A cot bed mattress fits perfectly in the base and the bedding you require is also that for a cot bed.
My son loved the bed instantly and the bright pictures of the vehicles on it - this really helped ease his transition from cot to bed. The guards at the top helped him feel secure and were reassuring to us too. He has never fallen from the bed, even though he does toss and turn a bit. The hard wood surround is a little unforgiving to his movements but it doesn't seem to bother him at all. He is now getting on for 2 and a half and still fits very comfortably in this bed. It is also very strong and I have no worries about it supporting his weight - sometimes I perch on the edge when I read bedtime stories and it is fine with my weight too so it must be pretty strong!
Overall, a nice boys toddler bed that complements a vehicle themed room nicely.
