Terrific Toddler Beds

ToysRUs.com; $309.99
Too big for the crib, but not quite ready for a "big" bed -- a toddler bed can be a great transition.

For some children, though, leaving the security of their crib is a difficult adjustment. Fun, themed beds that match your child's interests can be a great way to ease that transition. Here are some cute ones:

For your little princess, there's the Dream Castle Convertible Toddler Bed. At more than $300, it's pretty expensive, but it also converts into a double bed so you can potentially get years of use out of it.  


Here's another less-expensive princess bed that comes complete with a canopy (I desperately wanted a canopy when I was a girl!). There's also a Dora version.

Also in the pink category, but sans princesses, is this feminine race car bed.

Sweet Dreams Decor; $229.95
This pirate ship bed is great, and I can imagine the themed room it could inspire -- waves on the walls, a treasure chest/toy chest, a plank to walk somewhere.I also love this bulldozer bed. What little boy (or girl!) wouldn't want to doze off in it?! Or, let them sail of to sleep in this great boat bed.

Finally, if it's Hollywood glam you're after, then this is the ultimate fancy toddler bed. Of course, at almost $2,500, it should be - and that's with a 54 percent discount!

Sweet dreams!
