Making the big transition from cot to toddler bed doesn't need to be difficult. Especially with toddler beds like this one, designed in the Netherlands and made from 100% Finnish birch plywood by children's furniture designers Rafa Kids.
Combining modern design and style with functionality, here is a bed that children will just love to sleep in. With extended sides and cut-out windows to use as peep-holes (not to mention the wheels for added playfulness), they'll quickly develop their own independence without even realising it. And on the practical side, the "R Toddler bed" also allows for under-bed storage - and we all know how important that is!
And then there's the "F Bunkbed", which can combine with the toddler bed to create a fun and innovative sleeping space for 2 children, or stand alone in the room as a fabulous elevated single bed for any child aged 6+, with plenty of opportunities for climbing all over it, and plenty of room underneath it for a den, sofa or desk. Just like its toddler bed counterpart, the F Bunkbed's design is functional, safe and playful all rolled into one. Two ladders on either side of the bed mean that the bed can be placed anywhere in the room. Extra stability and safety features include the solid end at one side (which also doubles up as a place to display artwork and pictures), and rounded, mitred corners to help prevent any painful bangs and bruises.
The R Toddler bed measures 75cm (width) x 155cm (length) x 60cm (height), floor to bed base is 24cm, with recommended mattress size 70 x 150cm. It costs 550 EUR. Rafa Kids will ship it to the UK for 45 EUR.
The F Bunkbed is a full-sized single bed and measures 95cm (width), x 205cm (length) x 162cm (height), with recommended mattress size 90 x 200cm (standard EU single mattress size, available from Ikea). It costs 1,150 EUR. Rafa Kids will ship it to the UK for 75 EUR.
If you decide to purchase the set of 2 beds, the total cost is 1700 EUR, with shipping to the UK at just 75 EUR.
Both beds have been meticulously designed to comply with the highest EU safety standards. They come flat-packed with all the tools required for assembly included, and are available in 3 finishes - natural (shown above and below), white wash and dark chocolate.
