Car Bed Checklist

Models
  • Car beds are available in the design of fire department, police, as a racing car, but also as a replica of famous series heroes (for example Cars) and real car brands (Audi, Mercedes BMW).
  • For siblings or regular visitors, a double-decker bus is suitable, in which one child can sleep above and one below.
  • Some car beds offer storage space in the form of under-bed drawers or shelves.
Material
  • The most stable, though equally the heaviest, car beds are made of solid wood or fiberboard (MDF).
  • The frame should be made of sturdy, thick elements.
  • Attachments are sometimes made of the cheaper, thinner chipboard.
  • These are less stable, but lighter.
Reclining surface and mattress
  • Car beds are available in different sizes.
  • A mattress size of 140 x 70 centimeters is sufficient for toddlers up to a maximum of 4 years.
  • After that, your child will need a large mattress with a length of 200 centimeters.
  • Rolling slatted frames are easy to transport and more durable, but offer less lying comfort than conventional slatted frames.
  • Perforated, sturdy boards are sometimes used as a slatted frame substitute for loft beds .
Safety
  • Younger children definitely need a fall-out guard or a raised side frame.
  • The top bunk of a loft bed must always have a fall-out guard, even for older children.
  • All edges and corners must be rounded so that your child does not hurt himself.
  • Choose a mattress that has been tested for harmful substances and labeled as free of harmful substances (Oeko-Tex).
  • The same applies to the wood and varnish used.
  • If the bed has the TÜV seal, it has been tested for harmful substances and approved.
  • Pollutants can be present in the foam of the mattress, in fabric, in varnishes and in wood. They evaporate unnoticed and are absorbed by your child through the respiratory tract or through direct contact with the mouth or skin.
  • In addition, you should look for the FSC logo , which states that the wood comes from sustainable forestry.
  • Also, the bed must always be assembled according to the manufacturer’s instructions so that it isstableand does nottip over.

FAQ About Car Beds

What is a car bed?

A car bed is not fundamentally different from conventional children’s beds, but its shape and design is usually based on different cars.

How much does a car bed cost?

A car bed can cost up to 300 euros or more. However, this depends on the model and equipment.

What material is a car bed made of?

A car bed is usually made of solid wood. Therefore, it is very durable and robust. However, this also makes it usually very heavy. Therefore, there are also chipboard, which are much lighter. The slatted frame also requires the right choice. Note that roller slatted frames are not very stable in the long run. Therefore, you should choose high-quality material in any case, so that the wood does not splinter and your child can not hurt himself on it.

How is a car bed constructed?

Many car beds have various drawers that are located under the bed. This way, your child can also store toys or other small items in them and keep the nursery tidy.

In which sizes is a car bed available?

You can buy car beds in many different sizes. A mattress size of 140 x 70 centimeters is usually sufficient for a 4-year-old child. However, if your child is already older, the mattress length should be 200 cm.

How can safety be guaranteed with a car bed?

The wood of the bed should not have been treated with harmful varnishes, so that your child does not inhale the vapors at night. Therefore, natural wood is much more suitable. Test seals give you information about whether the wood is untreated. To protect the environment, you should also check which wood was actually used and whether it comes from sustainable forestry.

From what age is a car bed suitable?

When you can change the crib into a car bed is ultimately up to you. Every child develops differently, which is why there is no general answer to this question. Some parents let their child sleep in a crib after only 15 minutes, others much later. If you are still unsure, you should attach a fall-out protection to the bed. This guarantees that your child cannot hurt himself.

Up to what age can a car bed be used?

As a rule, the car bed can be used for as long as your child likes it visually. Of course, the size of your child also plays a role. If your child can no longer stretch out in the bed because he or she has grown recently, you should replace the bed. Always take into account the needs of your child. If the design no longer appeals to him, it’s time to buy a sleeker design.

What models of car beds are there?

Among other things, there are models that are suitable only for a single child and are modeled, for example, a fire truck, police car or race car. However, if your child still has a sister or brother, a double-decker bus may also come into question. In this case, one child can sleep on top and the other below.
