There are times when we don't want glitter or ruffles or confusing designs splattered all over our kids' clothes. That's why we love Primary. Their clothes are basic and simple and can be worn over and over again. Another reason we love Primary? They're also making Halloween easy by inspiring parents to take matters into their own hands to create clever and adorable DIY Halloween costumes without having to pick up a needle and thread. Best of all, the costumes can have a second life—the hoodie your little guy wore for his dragon costume can be the same hoodie he wears to school the following week — minus the scales, of course. Scroll to see our favorite Primary DIY costume picks, along with details on how to make them and where to buy the essential pieces.
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.

Book 13 of the Oz series.
This story is based on true events. It is said that “a picture is worth a thousand words.” This citation could not have been truer... than for a nine-year old named Vivienne Harr. It happened one day when she went with her Dad to visit her favorite museum located in the beautiful city of Plesanton, California, where she lived her fairy tale life with her family. As she stared at the photographs of the famous photographer, Lisa Kristine, of two children gazing down a cliff and carrying huge stone slabs on their backs, twice their weight. “Dad!” she shouted, “why are these children carrying those huge stones, why are they not at school, or playing?! Why are they wearing those huge shoes?! One bad step and they would fall into the abyss, and ... oh, no!” "Princess, it’s because those children are slaves" her dad said. “Slaves? Are there still slaves?” "Yes, my child, there are still millions of them.” "Dad, what are we going to do, what are we going to do?!" Vivienne shouted, feeling a lump in her throat. As she swallowed, her heart dropped to her stomach. "Darling, what can we do for them?" "Free them, Dad" she, "we must free them." And this has been the mission of this extraordinary girl ever since. Accompany Vivienne Harr in an impossible odyssey who is demonstrating that, in order to achieve the unattainable, one needs compassion, love, lots of action, and a good pitcher of lemonade. The Magical Heroes is a series of stories based on true events about children who are changing the world. read more
