Dream On Me Classic Design Toddler Bed

Honorable Mention
Check Latest Price

While themed kids beds are a ton of fun, for those looking for a more timeless, elegant design, this pick from Dream On Me takes the cake. We're in love with the clean lines and availability of finishes to match any room or decor. The sturdy wood construction is boasted to handle up to 50lbs, but we found it can support more than that, as well as putting up with the classic bed jumping all kids are seemingly required to do.

Side rails add extra peace of mind in case your little one is an active sleeper, while an additional support leg on each side increases its strength and stability.

Assembly is a bit more involved than our top pick, and we highly recommend closely following the included instructions to make the process as painless as possible. But rest assured that all tools needed for assembly are included, which is a nice plus.

For a timeless kids bed, you can't go wrong with this choice from Dream On Me.

Children grow fast, and finding the right bed for them as they transition out of their cribs can be a daunting one. Make sure to check safety standards first and foremost, but don't forget to think through the size bed you need, the protective measures included, and the materials it is constructed out of as you weigh your options.

Safety Ratings

When it comes to products for children, safety is top of mind. That is why all our picks meet ASTM standards, with many also meeting CPSC standards. ASTM international provides the basis for voluntary standards when it comes to procedures and regulations for materials, products, systems and services. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission often works closely with ASTM to ensure the quality and safety of products.

Size

When transitioning out of a crib, there are two primary options available to you: toddler beds and larger twin beds. Both have their benefits. For instance, toddler beds take up less space, and often come with features such as side rails to keep your child from falling out of bed. Not to mention, you can transition your current crib mattress to most toddler beds saving the need to purchase a new mattress. However, they are small, and it won't take your child long to outgrow it. Twin beds are certainly larger, taking up precious space in your child's room despite your child only needing a small percentage of the space it provides, and they don't come with safety rails needed to keep your child from falling out of the bed. However, they don't need to be replaced as often since your child will grow into it and not out of it overtime.

Protective Railings

There are different options available for safety rails. The most common are safety rails that extend about a third of the way to halfway down from the headboard. This provides a boundary for your child to roll up to without falling out while still providing them access into the bed from the lower half. Of course if you have an over-active sleeper, you may want to consider a bed with either full side rails or, rails that extend from both the headboard and the footboard, leaving an opening in the middle to access the bed. These options are more restrictive and crib-like, so they may not be a great option for all toddlers, but are helpful for children that move a lot in their sleep.

Materials

As with any piece of furniture, make sure to choose the best material for the weight limit and longevity you desire. Solid steel is likely the most durable, while plastic and cheaper woods are less so but come with a lower price tag. Buying cheap will last for a time, and then need to be replaced, while splurging on higher quality materials will ensure a longer lasting product.
