Babble Best Picks:
Kid too big for the crib but not yet ready for a true "big kid" bed? That's where the toddler bed comes in. Often low to the ground with guard rails to prevent active young sleepers from falling out, toddler beds ease the transition from crib to twin for both you and your little one. And there are tons of options out there, from convertible toddler beds to character beds to super stylish beds.
We did a little something different for this Babble Best and asked a group of our amazing bloggers to test and review the products themselves. As moms, they knew the buzz around which beds were most worthy of testing, and we've highlighted their top picks here for you. Did we miss one that you love? Feel free to nominate it here. - Babble Editors
BEST CHARACTER BEDS | Little Tikes Race Car Bed
The transition from crib to big-kid bed can be tough for some kids. Our reviewer decided to deal with the transition with something her boys were obsessed with: cars! Presenting them with a racecar bed from Little Tikes did the trick. The bed proved durable enough to withstand even our rough-and-tumble toddler testers – without looking like it had been through a war. And while the racecar/Lightning McQueen theme is an easy sell for little boys, the bed does come in girlier color schemes as well.
