In our recent PowWow survey about children's bedroom furniture, of the 33% of parents who had bought a toddler bed, a whopping 95% were pleased that they did.
As creators of children’s bedroom furniture and lifestyle products, we’re obsessed with finding out about the products parents buy and whether they’re making a difference to their lives – so we use PowWow to find our more. We host events, organise focus groups and send out a nosy survey or two!
In a recent PowWow, we asked mums, dads, guardians and grandparents about their children’s cots, toddler beds, single beds and everything in-between.
Nothing beats a top tip from one parent to another – it’s always good to know someone else has been through it all before. That’s why we were pleased to find out that the majority of parents who had bought a toddler bed would recommend one to other parents.
When you’re preparing to move your child into a bigger bed, their safety is one of your biggest concerns. So it’s reassuring to know that safety was the reason that over 50% of parents gave for choosing a toddler bed in the first place. The safety factor was also why most parents felt that they could recommend the product to another parent.
Yes I would [recommend a toddler bed] because they are practical and a single is too big and high for such a small person!
HelloHome toddlers beds have been built with your child’s safety in mind. Much lower to the ground than a kids’ single bed, and with protective sides to keep little ones safe and snug, a HelloHome toddler bed provides comfort and security when your toddler needs it most.
HelloHome toddler beds really are fantastic beds for kids – with gorgeous designs and cute characters. Most also come with under bed storage for their toys and teddies. They’re typically used by children between the ages of 1-2, with the characters supporting the transition between their cot and a big bed – little ones have even been known to jump straight in the minute the bed’s been put up!
They’re also a savvy solution for busy mums and dads, as they are easy and quick to assemble and come with simple, clear instructions.

Every child is different. Children’s sleep expert, Mandy Gurney has provided us with three simple signs that you can look out for:
1) Your little one is looking too big for his or her cot (it looks snug)
2) They are starting to try to climb out
3) They’ve started talking about a bigger bed (this is more common if they have older siblings)
