    Default What kind of bed? Novelty or conservative...

    Our girl is turning 2 soon and new bub on the way. We have to go bed shopping to buy her a bed however I am in two minds.

    I had in my mind I was going to buy a single white bed with matching tallboy and side drawer, get side rails and teach my girl to sleep in that hoping she won't fall out during the night.

    Then I seen the other day a pink car bed. Low to the ground with high sides.

    Do I get the whole set and keep that for many years ahead or get the car bed?

    We have shelves in the cupboard so if I got the car bed I would buy a side drawer or tall boy. Does your child have a novelty bed if so how long we're they in it for.

    Also do you think a pink car bed too tomboy??

    DS had a red racing car bed at my mums house for the random occasions he would stay there. Didnt take long for the novelty to wear off (remembering he only stayed there occasionally) and my mum get annoyed because it was a funny shape it didnt 'look right' in the room
    Thats just my DS though, your DD might absolutely love it.

    I dont think a pink car is tomboyish at all.

    My nephew had a car bed from age 2 - 9. My sister liked it because it had sides so he couldn't fall out of bed but she said it was really heavy and hard to move and making the bed is hard. Also you will have to replace the car bed with another bed sooner. If it were me I'd get the plain bed.

    I would go with the normal nice bed, something she can use for a long time.
    That she wont grow out of anytime soon.

    Plain bed for sure, I hate those novelty ones pity DS loves them, we drive past a place that sells them on the way to the supermarket, and every time he presses his nose to the window and sighs 'oh, wooooow...'

    Car bed. I ALWAYS wanted one but my mum was always a "waste of money you will grow out of it" kinda person.

    Still not I over it...lol

    They are only kids once. Plenty of time for "sensible" furniture later.

    I really want to buy this for ds. But making it would be too impractical.

    I think it depends on what she wants. If you do get a plain one, you can buy sheets that make it more
    Exciting. Ds currently has a brown wood king single with Elmo sheets.

    We got ds1 a red car bed with tall boy and drawers, his room is decked out in lightning mcqueen currently. The excitement of the car bed and light he could turn on and off was encouraging for him to stay in it. It's a king single. He is 4.5yrs old now and he still loves it and has plenty on room but it will be passed down to ds2 next year and we will get bunks for ds1.
