There are lots of things that make me want to be a little girl again – being allowed to get messy when eating ice cream, having an afternoon nap, not having to work – and this super-stylish (and yet functional) toddler bed from Florida-based designers P’kolino just confirms it – children really do have it good.
This brand new miniature bed has just been released, with its rounded corners and tangerine accents (it would be rude not to opt for the orange model!) wouldn’t look out of place in a trendy 20th century modern furniture showroom and yet it’s a fraction of the price of a designer piece and multi-functional too.
I’ve never really been convinced with the idea of toddler beds, given that children seem to grow so rapidly and then it’s bye-bye mini bed, hello eBay. But the best thing about the ingenious P’kolino toddler bed, which comes with side rails, is that when your little one outgrows the bed it smartly folds into a gorgeous chair. And the designers promise that its easy to fold out again if needed, for sleepovers.
I love this brand, and after visiting their online store, I am afraid for my credit card. Too long have I been searching for play furniture that looks good, is practical and won’t mean I have to re-mortgage the house. P’kolino Toddler Bed is US$189 plus shipping and you’ll need a re-shipper for this one.
