    yeah we'll have to do that because we're looking at double beds. That and his Nan and Pop tend to send him money so he can get stuff with that too. He'll still be getting a couple of little things too so he can unwrap them on the day. Oh and Grandpa will likely be here too so he will get something from him.

    This is the one we're looking at. Basic but he doesn't need much more than that.

    Just so you know, I've never had much luck with ikea beds. They've always fallen apart, and the slat in the middle given up spontaneously, dropping the mattress in the middle of the night. Can't complain about the price though!!!

    Just out of curiosity did you have this for it? http://www.ikea.com/au/en/catalog/pr...207/#/95844509

    He is only 27kg though so he's very much a light weight. We'll see what we can get but that's looking like the cheapest but not to say the better option.

    Yeah, but the middle slat would always suddenly slip to one side. And because that fit poorly, it would collapse down one side with it. It was all just badly measured, and thin pine.

    I also would stay away from ikea beds, I've never had any luck with them, and neither has anyone else I know who has used them. As they often say, you get what you pay for. I'd only use an ikea bed as a guest bed - so one that very, very rarely gets used, if ever.
    I'd spend the extra $$ and get a good quality, sturdy bed.

    Check out the ikea mandal bed. It has four drawers underneath for storage and is the same wood colour as the one you are looking at.

    Definitely not a flimsy bed. Especially not for a child!

    The mandal is a little out of our price range.

    I appreciate the feed back. Maybe the one at fantastic furniture would be better. It's Aus made too.

    Ah right - sorry I couldn't remember how much they cost.

    DD has an ikea bed as well and we've never had a problem with sturdiness.

    If you get ikea don't get delivery ! Terribly unreliable . On the web it tells you how big the package is you may fit it in your car.

    We only have an Elantra so the chances of a double bed fitting are next to none lol. The FF one is looking better and better lol
