Selecting an educational toy for children that keeps them engaged can be challenging. With the right tools, you can make the toy shopping experience a lot less stressful.
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.

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.

See the snug farm-houses they've got.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
