What kids wouldn’t find this to be the bed of their dreams?

Totally Kids fun furniture & toys is constantly searching for the most unique and creative bed options. We travel the world on that quest and pride ourselves in offering the best beds for you and your growing family.

Always at the top of our list is safety. Looking at this amazing bed, do you find anything that could be considered unsafe?

Here you see a perfect example of what at first glance might appear to be a dream bed, but in fact is a nightmare in the safety department.

 

 

The Sleep and Slide Bunk Beds are our newest fun yet safe introduction.  A place to sleep by night and an indoor playground during the day (minus the dangerous ropes and pulleys). Build of solid birch, it not only meets, but exceeds all safety standards. Since it is part of the add as you grow system, it takes your child creatively from first bed to college. Available in a warm Chestnut, painted white finish or natural birch as shown.

Over the years we have found hundreds fabulous beds that are available in other countries that fall short when safety is the main concern.

Let’s take a look at the most current regulations from the federal government.

Currently the Consumer Product Safety Commission requires the following as noted on their website:

Guardrails:
1. Bunk beds must have at least two upper bunk guardrails, with at least one rail on each side.
Lower bunks with mattress foundations that are 30 inches or less from the floor do not have to have guardrails.
2. The guardrail on the side of the bed next to a wall or on the side opposite to a ladder must run continuously from one end of the bed to the other. If the guardrail does not attach to an end of the bed, the gap between the end of the guardrail and the nearest end of the bunk bed cannot be greater than 0.22 inches.
3. A guardrail on the side of the bed away from the wall does not have to run continuously from end to end of the bed, but the distance between either end of the guardrail and the end of the bed nearest to it cannot be greater than 15 inches.
4. Guardrails must be attached to the bunk bed with fasteners that you have to release to take the rails off or they must require you to move them in two or more different directions, one after the other, to take them off.
5. The tops of the guardrails must be no less than 5 inches above the top of the mattress.
6. When you take the mattress off the upper bunk, any space between the bottom of the guardrail and the top of the mattress foundation must not let the wedge block described below pass through freely.

Bunk Bed Ends:
1. No opening in either end of the upper bunk that is above the mattress foundation can let the wedge block pass through freely.
2. When you use the thickest mattress and mattress foundation recommended by the manufacturer, the top of each end of the upper bunk must be at least 5 inches above the top of the mattress for at least half of the distance between the posts on each side of the end.
3. No opening in either end of the lower bunk below the mattress foundation of the upper bunk and above the mattress foundation of the lower bunk can permit the wedge block to pass through freely, unless the opening also allows a rigid 9 inch sphere to pass through it freely.
4. Any opening in either end of the lower bunk below the mattress foundation of the upper bunk that is tested with the wedge block must also be tested for the risk of neck entrapment if the opening lets the 9 inch sphere pass though freely.

These are the guidelines set up by the federal government to ensure the safety for bunk beds that we all need to be aware of.

SAFETY FIRST

Today another safety concern was called to our attention: Warning About Hand Sanitizer Poisoning in Children! Please read this article from Dagmar’s Momsense. If you have experienced a child’s ingesting hand sanitizer, we are looking for folks interested in doing a guest posting.

 

Oscar Day Fact: Many of our beds have starred in movies and have also made television appearances. Some of the beds have even been regulars on soap operas. The latest two auditioned and were selected for Target television commercials.  Oprah had one of our family lounger bean bag chairs on her set years ago.

One could be a star in your home too.

Look for the Griggs Bunk Bed currently “starring” in a Best Buy commercial. When  beds from Totally Kids fun furniture & toys are selected for film or your home, we always think of them as stars.

Oscar Week and we asked our Facebook fans to do some movie star to bed pairings.

First off this multi-layered bunk bed is one that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt might consider for their brood now rumored to be targeted at 14. (jk – we know it’s better suited for a summer camp)

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Another fan chose the Open Seas Bunk Beds for Johnny Depp. Now why would that be, Captain Jack? Arrrrrr!

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

This pretty poster bed was selected for Anne Hathaway. Our fan said “because Anne is a princess.” We all know the diary, right?

Our Stella Loft another fan thought would be good for Silvester Stallone. Stellaaaaaa…

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

This castle bed was selected for Colin Firth, The King’s Speech.

 

Martina, we found a stairway bunk bed with your name on it. Unfortunately, you have to live in Asia where the US safety standards do not apply if you want it for your bedroom. Cute, cute, isn’t it?

Just another super cute bunk bed that we will not be stocking. Scroll down to see one that we do stock and the Monahan twin girls chose for their bedroom.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

The Monahan twins fell in love with this bunk bed. The two little red headed cuties, came in looking for a space saving bed since they were sharing a rather small bedroom. This was the one for them with the storage conveniently tucked under the lower bunk, along with bookcases and a desk that pivots in and out. The girls thought they could sit across from each other at the desk. The drawer fronts feature mix and match soft colored drawer fronts with the option of all white should that be your preference.

If you are anything like us you might have a few leftover candy candy canes. Well here is a delightful way to recycle them for your Valentines.

Family Fun has the 411.

Abracadabra…..

Orange ya glad we did not tell you what it is?
