This bed is perfect. Its small size makes it cute and adorable while the simple style adds some extra flair and elegance to it. The neat finishing gives the bed a sassy look and the high-grade paint used is durable and resilient to peeling off, meaning even after your kid outgrows the bed, its appearance will still be appealing. The color options are also amazing and varied, hence not restricting you to a particular theme.

The bed comes well packaged with no missing parts or damages. The delivery is done on time, and in a small and light box which you can carry effortlessly up the stairs. Besides, this bed is very light and moving it to different positions is hassle-free. The small size of the bed makes it a good choice because you can just set it in your room beside your bed if your kid is too scared to sleep alone or if you are short on rooms.

On the issue of assembly, the bed is pretty easy to put together, and it will take at most one hour to have it up and functional. The assembling process is even made simpler by the well-labeled parts; all you need to do is sort them out before getting the process started.

The bed is also sturdy, which is attributed to by a number of reasons: the first one is the strong wood frames on which the bed is constructed, and secondly is the center support leg. The center support leg and the frames also prevent creaky sounds during movement. The simple and neatly constructed guardrails are also pretty helpful as they make sure the kid is safe from falling down the bed. Lastly, the slats are pretty useful in preventing the mattress from sliding.

The price of the bed is very fair, and its features are worth every penny spent on it.


Though the actual assembling process of this bed is easy and straight-forward, the instructions are not as clear, and you will have to figure out some parts on your own. The pictures shown are also not adequately detailed, hence as vague as the directions.

Even though this bed is meant for a toddler and the 50 pounds is quite enough. It still is not safe especially if you have older kids who like running and jumping on beds. It would be better if the weight capacity is enhanced even with a little more pounds.

Usual with any purchase, this bed had a few issues. However, these minor problems do not have a major impact on its overall functionality and its appearance.


This bed is a great start for a toddler to start the transition from a crib to a real bed. It is easy to assemble, and its packaging is superb, making it secure during shipping. Its sturdiness is also amazing for a bed as small as it is. The design is simple yet elegant and is a perfect go with a traditional aesthetic. The colors are no less amazing and the fact that they are many for your choosing makes the bed an even better choice. The high-end material used gives the bed an edge over any bed of similar nature, and its adorably small size wraps up the whole look.

If you want a low height bed, which is both beautiful and sturdy as well as affordable, Rucker Toddler Bed should be your first consideration.
