Argington Ayres Twin Bed

Much as we have enjoyed the Oeuf Toddler Bed that converted from my son’s bed some six months ago, it quickly outlived its usefulness. Now it is true my boy is big for his age, the cheeky three and a half year old could easily pass for 5 on a good day. However, there are a few reasons I’d counsel most parents against the toddler bed and advise heading straight for the twin - admittedly with guards on the side.

My main issue with the toddler bed, aside from the short life-span - is that it is, by definition, very small. Which means cuddling up for a bedtime story, or snuggling in when they are sick, is just not possible, not unless you want to indulge in some serious bedtime yoga. This means of course they invariably end up in Mom & Dad’s bed - and that’s no good for anyone! Well, except perhaps for Mom, but that’s beside the point.

So I know I’m not completely adhering to my end of the bargain to bring you items on the affordable range. But well. I’m a big fan of this lovely, clean bed - AND it comes with a trundle. So I had to share. Forgive me!
