Declutter the playroom or living room with our favorite modern toy boxes that can store it all.
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.

Inspired by the wit and wisdom of Terry Pratchett, this clockpunk coming-of-age adventure is sure to delight anyone who loved The ...Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents, Equal Rites, or the Tiffany Aching series.Almost nothing interesting ever happens in Deidre's little village, outside of the occasional traveling merchant or troupe of players visiting the marketplace. So it's no wonder that she spends her every free moment designing and building outlandish contraptions, and then relying on her semi-autonomous tongue to get her out of trouble--or dig her in deeper--when the device inevitably slimes Momma with something. Then that self-proclaimed were-chicken hunter rode in. His tall tales of shape-shifting chicken-beasts cock-a-doodling at the moon were good for a laugh until it looked like they were true. Will Deidre be able to catch the monster before suspicions, accusations and eight feet of giant chicken tear her homeland apart? read more
BEST PART OF PIRATINGWhenever we think about what we want to be when we grow up, we try to create lists of the benefits and negati...ves of going for a particular job. So, for example: ice cream tester. You literally get to eat ice cream all day, trying out all flavors from all sorts of places and you get paid for it! The problem? Well, taking your work home can be annoying and it would be the worst thing ever to discover that you hate having ice cream just for yourself.But, that's what eventually lead us to consider the illustrious career of the pirate. Get a boat. But, you have to be at sea all the time. (Which is kinda great, anyway.) Go find lost treasure all over the world. Possibly have to have a peg leg or eye patch. (Again: pretty friggin awesome.) But, the best bonus of all? You get a faithful, friendly, parrot ally! Now, occasionally they can be pretty squawky, true, but there are ways around that also...DESIGN & DETAILSIf your kiddo is already a bit noisy, anyway, you can get the best of both pirating worlds together with this Parrot Costume! Our designers practically live on the deck and have watched dozens of pirate and parrot interactions to craft this adorably comfortable and high-quality parrot look for your little squawker. This hooded jumper has all the colors of a jungle isle with red, yellow, and white minky fabric for the belly, hood, and arms as well as yellow, and blue felt feathers. The hood features a wide bubble hood with parrot eyes and a beak and the boot covers give your kiddo webbed birdy feet for the full look.GET THOSE PHRASES READYYour kiddo might get a little obsessed with asking for crackers and thinking that their name is Polly once they climb into this Squawking Parrot Costume, but the delight you'll all share in it will be more than worth it.
