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.

"I really enjoyed this book. Cindy Chambers has captured the feelings of children at the typical age at which scoliosis is discoveredmiddle school. Because scoliosis develops silently and gradually, creating awareness helps timely detection. The reactions, care and proper support are so accurately described here. Both personal and group dimensions are covered. All of the information is accurate. I think this book will help many young people to deal with this challenge in a successful way." Paul David Sponseller, M.D., M.B.A. Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery, Chief, Division of Pediatric Orthopaedics Department Executive Vice Chair, Orthopaedic Surgery, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD "This clear, concise, and fun story, , makes it easy to understand what scoliosis is, how it is detected, diagnosed, and often treated. It also reveals every child's desire to be accepted by their peers, particularly when something beyond their control, like scoliosis, makes them different. Patients who have the support of their family, friends and medical professionals that "have your back" make all the difference, just like in Adie's experience. We are very grateful for Cindy Chambers, Dr. Moshirfar, and Mrs. Allan's 8th grade class at J. Lupton Simpson Middle School for their kindness in writing this wonderful book, promoting education, awareness, and compassionate care for children with scoliosis." Luke Stikeleather, BSW, CO President, National Scoliosis Center , Fairfax, Virginia http://www.nationalscoliosiscenter.com/ "Thank you for writing this outstanding story to help children understand scoliosis. Beamer and Dr. Moe do a great job explaining this common developmental pediatric condition. The more we empower our young patients with knowledge about their health conditions, the more they will embrace their differences and support their peers." Barbra Jill McCabe, MD, FAAP Medical Dirctor Pediatric Emergency and Hospitalist Services, Inova Loudoun Hospital, Leesburg, Virginia "What an honor to have Cindy Chambers share her talents with the students of J. Lupton Simpson Middle School! Her leadership and vision brought young minds to this dynamic and creative process to produce a book that will help children everywhere face the unknowns of scoliosis.
