Pros:Low cost, very stable, and stylish.
Cons:Can only be used until your child reaches age 5 or 50 pounds.
The Bottom Line: I recommend this bed to parents who do not want to spend a lot of money on a bed, but are looking for a quality product.
The transition from a crib to a toddler bed is a big milestone in your childs life. When purchasing a toddler bed for my son, I was very concerned about the safety a toddler bed would provide. I did not want my son to roll out of bed and fall on the floor in the middle of the night (especially since he tosses in his sleep). I compared many brands before I settled on the Delta Natural Toddler Bed. Not only does this bed earn the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association seal of approval, but it also exceeds the requirements of the Consumer Products Safety Commission.
The Delta Natural Toddler Bed has two bed rails positioned on each side of the top portion of the bed. There is space left toward the foot of the bed so the child can easily climb into the bed, but enough length to the bed rails that the child will not roll out of bed while sleeping. The bed rails are removable so as a child gets older the rails can be detached for a more big boy appearance. The bed contains wooden support slats for the mattress that are very durable. Combined with the sturdy frame, the mattress does not move around or seem unstable. The laminate on the bed is from a non toxic paint.
The Delta Toddler Bed is made from solid wood. The finish on the frame is a light tan color (similar to the look of unfinished lumber). The headboard, footboard, and the rails all contain slats that are neither feminine nor masculine, so this bed makes a great additional to a boy or a girls room.
According to the manufacturer, this bed is intended for children 18 months to 5 years old. The maximum weight capacity is 50 pounds. The Delta Toddler Bed uses a standard crib mattress which will need to be purchased separately (I just used the mattress from my sons crib). The wooden support slats for the mattress make it unnecessary to purchase a separate box spring mattress.
The only drawback to the Delta Toddler Bed that I can see is the bed can only be used until your child reaches 5 years of age or 50 pounds. But with the reasonable price of $90, I think this is an insignificant aspect to the overall quality, appearance, and safety that this bed provides.
