Acquiring all the products needed to care for your children can be expensive and overwhelming. But you can make the experience a lot less stressful for yourself and your family with quality tools and toys that can be used for all your children.
As a child, did you pretend to live in a castle by arranging old blankets over the couch and chairs? There was something so fun about sitting underneath mom's old sheets. Now think how much more awesome it would be to actually have a bed that looks like a mini house! Enter the toddler house bed, also known as a Montessori floor bed.
These beds are exactly what they sound like: Picture a house-shaped frame above the mattress, complete with windows, a door and a kitchen (OK, just kidding about the kitchen). But now picture your little angel's precious head resting underneath one of these magical creations.
While this may seem like a cool, new way to sleep, the floor bed concept actually dates back to the early 20th century teaching philosophy called the Montessori Method, which focuses on placing everything a child needs to learn and explore at the child's level. So, by placing their bed on the floor, you give children independence and a chance to learn on their own terms.
Here, we've rounded up some of our favorite toddler house beds that are ready to take up residence in dreamland.

Excerpt from A Poor American in Ireland and ScotlandOne adventure we had, however, I will relate, for as it proved mighty interest...ing to us it may also prove so to others. It concerned two young girls, and it took Billy and I a long time to get over it, for adventures of that kind were few with us.One beautiful October morning Billy and I started out to walk from Ogden to Salt Lake City, a distance of about thirty seven miles, and as we had a little money in our pockets, which we had earned by l'abori/ng in the harvest fields, we felt happy and independent, for what we had earned we had come by fairly and were beholden to nobody for. The weather was fine, cool and sunny, and it infected our spirits to a high de gree. We talked and laughed aloud, whistled or sang as the mood came over us. The country through which we were walking was fine, for it was dotted with grain fields, meadows, orchards, snug farm-houses, and here and there along the road side, by shade trees.Say Billy, said I to my chum, these Mormon fellows have got good taste. See the snug farm-houses they've got.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
