It was the night before Christmas 2016 or somewhere around that night when we received this bed and two mattresses from Amazon in the mail. Holden was gone for the evening and we invited friends without kids over to "help" us put together our little boys BIG boy bed! We didn't intend on them being so eager to jump into our mess, but it allowed for us to get them beer and wine. Four of us together (basically 2) the assembly took about an hour, one of us is very handy (not me!).
We were happy to get to show Holden Santa had came and was he ever EXCITED! Holden was just over 2 years old when we decided to make the commitment to a bunk bed. We couldn't be more pleased with the cost of this purchase and how it has held up to him jumping, playing and going crazy all over this thing. The stairs were the scary part, but we decided to not make a big deal about them, so far he has been safe. You can take the twin bed and full bed apart if needed which was another selling point for me. I personally felt $550 for the entire setup was a steal.
OH OH OH MERRY CHRISTMAS!
