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.

In these true stories the author tells us what he actually experienced as a boy growing up in the Peace country of northern Albert...a. In addition to relating the details of what life was like in the 1930’s and 1940’s in Canada’s north, the stories are allegorical in nature, with each one raising for consideration a moral issue. “The Rabbit Hunt”, for example, is about dealing with the sentiment of blood lust. What to do about bullying is the issue in “The Bully”. The themes of courage and perseverance are raised in “Birdie”. Other themes like justice, corporeal punishment, bravery, being a sissy, and trapping wild animals are brought to the fore in other stories. The author’s own view on these issues comes through, while leaving plenty of room for other points of view. The most compelling feature of the stories, however, is their ring of authenticity, brought about by graphic and accurate description of exciting real actions and events. read more
