Best Toddler Bed: Little Tikes Race Car Bed

The transition from crib to big kid bed can be tough for some kids. I decided to deal with the transition with bribery something my boys were obsessed with: Cars!  My boys all loved the Disney movie Cars, so presenting them with a race car bed from Little Tikes, outfitted with Cars bedding did the trick! The Lightning McQueen Roadster Toddler Bed was a huge hit.

Pros:
*Little Tikes makes extremely durable products; durable enough to withstand even my rough-and-tumble little boys, without looking like the bed has been through a war. $199.99 is not bad for a bed that lasts through multiple children.

*The race car/Lightning McQueen theme is an easy sell for little boys. Though, it does come in girl friendly colors like pink, too.

Cons:
*Like most toddler beds, your child will outgrow it by age 5. But, since this is true of all toddler beds unless you buy one that converts to a twin, it’s not too bad of a con.

*I had to buy a support for under the mattress: a sheet of plywood cut to the appropriate dimensions.

Overall, it’s a durable bed with a fun theme for little boys and has survived being passed down to all three of my boys.
