    We put our boys in a bunk recently. They are 4.5 and 1.5. DF built it and DS2 can't climb up the top. It was the only way we could fit a single bed in for DS1.

    This is what it looks like..
    Ignore the mess please. Also it was time for DS2'S nap. I took the photo for DF who asked me to.

    I have been tossing up wether to get one for my 4yo but have decided to get a single bed with a trundle for now and reassess when dd is ready for a bed then if ds is ready give his bed to dd and then get one. He can't be trusted ATM jumps on anything he can!!

    3 is too young imo. Some look great but the worry of them falling out would be too much for me. My parents had bunks for us when we were kids and we fell off a fair bit!

    That happened here on the Sunshine Coast and has stuck with me for ever

    I won't even let my kids use bunk beds at friends houses for sleep overs or slumber parties and would never ever buy one so yes, I think three is too little

    Personally , I do think 3 is too young to be on the top bunk.

    I don't think bunks are ever safe for any age.

    My husband got his head caught in a working ceiling fan from the top bunk when he was younger.
    His mum said the fan was literally stuck in his head and there was blood everywhere which, once his head was removed went flying around the room. He has quite a large scar and both he and his brother remember it vividly all these years later.
    Needless to say-no bunks in our house!

    Not for my 5yo. I think all the bunk beds actually have a warning for 7or 8 and older?
