The 12 Coolest Toddler Beds

Toddler beds range from simple and affordable to out of this world modern style.

People used to ask me all the time, “When will you move Harrison to a toddler bed?” and I would stare at them in horror.  WHY WOULD I WANT TO REMOVE THE BABY CAGE CRIB?  Give him freedom?  ARE YOU NUTS?

Then one day during nap, I opened his door to catch him right as he launched himself over the crib railing.  My heart nearly stopped, but I found the wrench and took off the front of the crib.  A few days later, we added a small half-rail and after only two nights of misery, our kiddo adapted quickly to his toddler bed.

We added a few special blankets and a pillow to solidify his “big boy status,” and I have to admit that I find his room even more darling than I did before.  Oh, and watching him crawl into the bed at night, complete with footed jammies?  My heart nearly explodes every time from the sweetness.

We chose to go the simple route with a Munire convertible crib and matching rail, but there are so many cool options to choose for your slumbering tot!
