“More than just a bed, these bedtime pals, who also come with names, a story, and matching sheets (called Bedjammies), not only provide fun, comfort, and safety, they inspire creativity and instill a sense of security in both children and their parents.
In a market where function has always ruled over style, Incredibeds shows how to do both by retaining comfort and safety while adding fun, imagination, and wonder to a child’s bed. And by adding bumpers it can also be used as a transitional bed for toddlers sleeping out of a crib for the first time. The Incredibed easily zips around the outside of a standard twin mattress and box spring, is 100% machine washable/dryable, and is made from hypoallergenic materials. Consumer-tested and approved, the product also offers safety, comfort and reliability.”
My two year old daughter is getting so big! It seems like just yesterday when we placed her in the crib for the first time. But, we know it is time to make the transition to her very first big girl bed. My husband and I brainstormed ideas on how to best make the BIG switch when I was approached by Incredibeds for a feature here on Experimental Mommy. After taking a look at the product, I thought the Incredibed could be a really unique and fun way to get my daughter excited about her new bed.
We chose Daisy the Female Floppy Eared Dog because she looks the most feminine (and Aubrie is definitely a girly girl). The dog has big eyelashes and a pink tuft of hair that Aubrie thought was quite funny. When the package arrived, we headed out to purchase a twin mattress and box spring (no bed frame is needed). When we got home, Aubrie could not wait for my husband to open the box.
To be totally honest, when my husband removed Daisy’s head from the box, I thought my daughter would freak out. It looks like the head to a college mascot costume or a character in a theme park. But, to my complete surprise, Aubrie ran up to Daisy and gave her a kiss on the nose!
The instructions were easy to follow and the pieces of Daisy zipped up to create a bedframe! Because this is Aubrie’s first time out of the crib, we also received the Zipper Bumper Transition Sheet which zips into the center of the frame. It is waterproof (great for my newly potty trained toddler) and includes bumpers on both sides so she does not roll out of the bed.
To complete the look, we chose the Princess Aruba BedJammies (the dog has to have a dress, right?). The “jammies” which act as a fitted sheet, snap around the neck of the dog and attach underneath at the base. It made Daisy look like a real princess! The best part is that the “dress” has pockets to store Aubrie’s bedtime stories and stuffed animals. The BedJammies set also came with a soft flat sheet and a pillowcase.
Once the bed was assembled, Aubrie dove in and started telling Daisy “secrets!” She loved it and was so excited for bedtime to arrive. The transition I thought would be difficult, turned into a VERY simple process. As I write this post, Aubrie is happily snuggled on Daisy’s “belly” fast asleep!
The Incredibeds bed frame was easy to assemble and was a huge hit with my two year old. The zipper bumper transition sheet was perfect to make the big switch from her crib to her first big girl bed and the BedJammies made it fun! The bed frame can be purchased for $299.00.
