When we bought our home about a year ago, we decided my daughter would get the bigger room of the two kids rooms. But when I say bigger, I mean by just a foot or two bigger than her brother's room, but she has so much more stuff then her brother, it must be a girl thing! Little Sister C will be 4 in October (I can't believe how fast time flies) & has started to outgrow her toddler bed, well when we started shopping online for twin beds, she asked if she could have a bunk bed, I thought that was perfect for her room & even better when her cousins & friends stay the night!
Stork Craft generously gave a beautiful Caribou Twin over Twin Bunk Bed in white to Little Sister C, in exchange for my review. They offer two different styles of bunk beds to choose from, both the Caribou & Long Horn are available in a variety of color options as well.
I absolutely love the style of the Caribou Twin over Twin Bunk Bed, it's perfect for Little Sister's small bedroom & when she grows older, if I need too, the bunk bed can be separated into two twin beds!
Stork Craft bunk beds meet USA & Canada safety standards & are built with unique fastening systems, a sturdy fastened ladder as well as full length guardrails. The Caribou also comes with a 1 year limited manufacturers warranty & each bed comes with a full sized slat roll mattress support.
I love to build, paint & get my hands dirty but I had a feeling I probably shouldn't tackle assembling my daughter's new bunk bed by myself, so thanks to my Mom's boyfriend, he spent most of his morning over at my house working on the new bunk bed.
It arrived in two heavy boxes, a few assembled pieces & lots of bolts & screws! The twin beds each have to be assembled separately, detailed instructions are included but a few of our pieces of the bed weren't labeled, so thank goodness for instructions with pictures (& a man who knows what he's doing)! Once the beds are ready to go, just stack the upper on top, which is held in place with a metal pin, install the ladder & your done!
I don't have any pictures of the assembly process, my daughter's room is small & there was a lot going on, with kids & the dog running around, it took about 3-4 hours for my Mom's boyfriend to complete it. Once assembled the bed measures about 78.50 inches long, 42.75 inches wide & is 61.50 inches tall!
My daughter has been talking about her new bed every day since I told her she would be getting a new "big girl" bed, she was so excited when she walked into her room & saw the Stork Craft Bunk Bed! She said, "wow, is that for me?!"
The bunk bed isn't as heavy as the wood & huge bunk bed I had growing up so I won't need help moving it should I ever rearrange her room. However, the ladder is only set up to be on one side, so we are kind of limited to where the bed could go in her room. For now, I like it on the far wall by her window, she put her blankets & pillows on the bottom & then a few of her favorite dolls & stuffed animals are hanging out on top.
She did climb up to the top bunk for a little bit, but I think she will have to get used to how high up it is, so for now, she is enjoying sleeping on the bottom. There's plenty of room on the top bunk & bottom bunk, she can stand on the top bunk & I don't have to worry about her hitting her head on the fan & the bottom bunk gives enough space between beds for her to sit up, crawl around & play in if she wants.
We are all very pleased with Little Sister's new Stork Craft Caribou Bunk Bed & a big thanks to my Mom & her boyfriend for all of their hard-work & help! Can you tell what my daughter's favorite colors are?!
Isn't she adorable!?
