I reviewed many beds from several different stores and designers before purchasing this one and I think I got the best possible bed for the price. It was simple to put together and it's nice and light so we can move it around without a lot of effort. My 2 and 1/2 year old loves his big boy bed! I love the style of it and that it is so easy for him to get in and out of on his own.
I researched other companies thoroughly for price and styles, especially since I needed a black color. My husband and my daughter put the bed together. My granddaughter loves her bed and we are very satisfied with it. My granddaughter moves around a lot when she sleeps, so it was very important that there was a headboard and footboard on it. I would definitely recommend it to others.
