to be really miffed that the toddler bed I just paid £130 for has no matress with it?

So after DS turned in to Houdini we decided to get him a toddler bed (SO cute- In the Night Garden bed). Found it on Amazon and fell in love with it. Had seen one on ebay (Saplings one) and it was the same price and it came with a mattress. So I thought, they are the same price I'll get the one I want.

Before I get flamed- in the picture there was a mattress- it was NOT specified but nothing was- there were NO details. I presumed that it came with a mattress. Even though I am still waiting on it, I contacted the seller (through Amazon) to ascertain when it was coming and he told me that it didn't come with a mattress. I was shock to say the least. I wouldn't have bought it if i had know that I was going to have to buy a mattress too as we are not totally skint but nearly wink.

AIBU to be indignant about the lack of mattress or AIBU to have expected one at all just because it was in the picture?

Aaah, they never come with mattresses, tis a cheeky con and you only learn through experience wink

I think YANBU - it's pictured with a mattress, but not with bedding, so not obviously a "serving suggestion".

It is going to cost you more in the future as a toddler bed will only last a few years before it becomes too small and then you will be buying a new bed and a new mattress.
YAB a bit U as you must have known that was too cheap for a themed bed and a mattress. Are you going to cancel the order?

Hmm, yeah, I would expect a mattress in those circs too actually looking at link

YANBU as amazon doesnt give any details however if you had seached then would have found the one at agos which states what is not included

folks, would love to send it back but have shown it to both DC who are very excited. DH has also decided to keep it but I am just scunnered because the mattress money will have to come from somewhere else eg chrismas money. Have not bought a toddler bed before as DD has a single and acknowledge that it will cost me more money in the long run but for space reasons chose a wee bed. Bah humbug.

Bugger. It is a lovely bed though grin

Dont know if you have one near you but my local TKMaxx had fully sprung luxury mattresses down from over £140 to £37... I got one to used with the cotbed i've bought for DC3... The cotbed is exactly the same dimensions as your bed has...

Just off the phone to Consumer Direct (thanks for the link Mutt), and I may be on wobbley ground- will need to pursue it with Amazon and the independant seller. Hassel central.

And to add insult to injury, only half the bloody thing has turned up. Have to wait in for the other half tomorrow too sad. The kids are going to love me hmm

Um the first customer review shouts out that it does not include a matress!

JammyOLantern Sun 11-Oct-09 21:56:48

Ooops, was looking for threads about matresses and saw this and forgot to check the date before responding blush

EverySingleStar Sun 11-Oct-09 21:58:00

Yeah - was gonna say same as Jammy.

And also, it says BEFORE the reviews:

Bed size: yada-yada, REQUIRED MATTRESS SIZE: yada-yada, not 'mattress size': so that's an indication...

IdrisTheDragon Sun 11-Oct-09 22:01:09

Maybe the review saying there was no mattress was from shootfromthehip smile

paisleyleaf Sun 11-Oct-09 22:10:39

Sorry, it does state required mattress size.

If you scroll down one of the reviews says that it doesn't come with a mattress.

Send it back, go to IKEA, and just get decals to put on.

TBH, I would have thought a mattress came as well - i don't often read the fine print, and I need "NO MATTRESS SUPPLIED" in bold letters across the front

ruddynorah Sun 11-Oct-09 22:40:50

product description says mattress required.

your child will probably not even like night garden in another year or so. go to ikea and get something plain that will last.

Um, this thread is nearly a year old!! It was probably the OP's own review saying it didn't include a matress grin
