When it’s finally time to switch from the baby’s first bed to a toddler bed, it can be an exciting time for your child. But it can also be a little bit of a scary time, as well. However, there are plenty of toddler beds on the market today that can make the transition much easier for little ones. Here are some of our favorites.

Dream On Me Austin Toddler Day Bed

This makes the perfect transition bed for kids going from the crib to the bed. It features a railing so that your child will not fall out of bed at night, but the railing is removable for when they’re older. The bed comes with a wooden frame, so there is no need for a box spring.

If your little one loves anything and everything Disney, this is the perfect bed for them to transition into! It features a full and sturdy frame, with character decals to decorate the bed. It will fit any standard toddler/crib-sized mattress. It is made of sturdy steel and has two attached guardrails that will ensure your little one doesn’t fall out of bed. You can also find it in Minnie Mouse, Cars, and Paw Patrol, depending on what your child likes!

KidKraft Fire Truck Toddler Bed

Beep, beep! Here comes the fire truck coming down the street, or rather in your little one’s bedroom! It is made of MDF and solid wood, and it has built-in side rails that assure your child will stay in bed. All of the beautiful details on the fire truck are silk-screened for an awesome-looking bed for your child’s bedroom!

CJLMN Twin Size Wood Bed House Bed Frame

Quite a modern take on the toddler bed, your little one will love this and pretend that they are sleeping in their own little house with this bed frame. It features a roof and a “fence” that actually double as guardrails. It can fit a twin mattress easily and is close to the ground, so it is easy for your child to get out of bed. And, you can put canopies over it if you want to.

Costzon Toddler Upholstered Platform Bed

Your little darling will adore this sweet toddler bed. It is made of premium plywood, upholstered with soft pink foam padding, and decorated with rhinestones. It is purposely built low to the ground to assure that your child will be able to get in and out of bed with ease.

Delta Children Sport Race Car Twin Bed

If you have a little race-car fan in your life, they will love zooming off to their room to get into bed at night! It can fit a standard-size twin mattress. The mattress purposely sits low to the ground so that it is easy for your child to get out of bed when they need to. It is created out of durable plastic, so you can count on this bed.
