Get your kids excited for bedtime with these dreamy beds
By Aimee Heckel
If bedtime feels more like battle time with your kids, make it more exciting by changing up the scenery.
Here are some of our favorite ways to get kids excited about bedtime — via unique and dreamy beds.
1. Blend your child’s bed and playhouse.
This dollhouse loft bed is a creative way to add a bunk on top, or just a play area. Customize it by choosing a variety of options, such as staircases, slides, drawers, paint colors and shingle styles. Starts around $1,197 from Playhousedesigns.com. (Hey, a kid can dream!)
2. Never nag your kids to make their beds again.
Beddys.com is a new invention that makes it easy to make the bed. With these special, fitted comforter sets, your kids simply zip up the bed, sort of like a fancy sleeping bag, instead of having to tuck, pull and fold the blankets.
Beddy’s is starting preorders now. Pick up your own fashionable, yet functional, set on the Beddy’s Kickstarter page. Pledge $199 and you can get a twin-sized Beddy’s, pillowcase and sham, worth $249.
3. Superheroes need sleep, too.
A bed that looks like the Batmobile. Enough said.
Find the glorious Batmobile bed at Etsy.com for about $800.
This seller, ShortysCreations1, also makes a matching two-drawer Batman night stand for $150 and a handmade race car bed for about $800, which you can special order in various sizes and colors. The shop also offers any kind of custom bed, from princess to fire fighter — whatever theme your child desires.
4. Bring the outdoors inside.
This tree house twin bed from Pottery Barn Kids is a dream come true. Starting at $1,275, this is a creative solution to a loft or bunk bed, opening up the floor for more play space. It comes complete with windows, various wood finishes and a ladder.
