After scouing the web for a new "big boy bed" for my two year old son, this was by far, the best one I could find for the money. I saw no reason to spend a fortune on something that he could only use for a couple of years, tops. But I didn't want something cheaply made, that was going to fall apart, either. This bed is WOOD, not plastic and metal, like some of the other ones out there. I made the mistake of purchasing a similarly priced Spongebob bed for my older son (now 6 yrs. old), and it had a cheap metal frame with a plastic head-board and foot-board. It lost screws almost immediately and never felt sturdy to me. I couldn't reuse it for my younger son. This bed, however, is very well made and very sturdy. It's like REAL furniture. And even though the Spongebob bed was cute, my son got over his affinity for the character and soon became enthralled with Thomas the Train, and then Diego, and then Spiderman. But I was stuck with Spongebob all over the bed. I bought new charcter bedding sets, but they didn't look very cute on a Spongebob bed. So this time around, I opted to buy a bed that was wood and sturdy and that looked like furniture, and now I can buy bedding sets that feature whatever latest thing my 2 year old loves, at the time, and it won't have to fight with a theme all over the bed frame. The price on this bed was definately the best out there. And I was not dissapointed when I pulled it out of the box and put it together. It looks just like the picture. I love it! I couldn't be happier or more satisfied! I would definately recommend it!
