    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.
    Wow love this bed!

    DS has a red racing car bed...
    I hate it I prefer a classical
    style but it's the one he wanted and it's his bed, so we got it.

    He co-sleeps anyway, so it just sits in his room looking ugly.

    I would let him pick (if you do, be prepared for the novelty one!)

    DS had a racing bed at 2 and still uses it at almost 5, I think he will get a few more years out of it yet. I like it because it jazzes up his room and also love the high sides so he doesn't fall out

    I think the car bed. Because lets face it, who wants to have the same bed for 16 years anyway?

    We went with a plain, solid wood with a dark finish bed which matching tallboy and bedside tables, it also luckily matched her bookcase.

    I wanted something she could use until we need to get her something bigger, so hopefully until her teens!

    I also like that with plain beds/furniture, you can easily re-decorate a room without worrying that it won't match something.

    That's just me though

    i just got dd a pink car bed. she LOVES it! she's only 3, but i figure, if she sleeps in it till at least 12, i'll be happy with that.

    We bought a classic wooden single bed second hand on eBay. It's a single but sits low, I think the top of the mattress is about 60cm off the ground? I figure we can always decorate the room or bed head if DD wants

    I can't stand the novelty beds they seem a little tacky to me personally.. My friend thinks they are totally bogan haha. My 1 year old is in a gorgeous dark wood boori cot with the matching drawers, toy box and book case. Once he's grown out of his cot I'll be getting him a dark wood double bed to grow into. keep with the theme of his room
