I bought a little tikes blue car bed its in moulded plastic and very sturdy. It has sides that would prevent them from rolling out too. And no I don't think its being mean, He will love it! Also, you can get pretend Name registration plates made up which make it really special
We have the little tikes one for DS1 and he loves it. He would have been over the moon if we got it for him as a bday pressie, but we needed to get him into it before DTs arrived so he got it anyway as bday was after they were due.
I got mine second hand from ebay, cost me £60.00 with no mattress which did'nt bother me as I would have bought a new one anyway. there is usually quite a few on there and as they are plastic, what could possibly be wrong with one? Also, these beds only really last til the age of 5 or 6 so not good value if buying new IMO.
Ebay was my first port of call as I already have mattresses etc so a power wash and the plastic bit is okay imo but I have not been able to find any near to me for collection that accepts the single bed size mattress.
Thanks for the link pavlov but I really need the normal single sized one as ds will be too big for the toddler one.
