Review: HelloHome StarBright Toddler Bed from Worlds Apart

03/06/2015
star bright toddler bed

One of the best things about my blog is the opportunities it brings so when Little Mr had an invitation to test out the HelloHome StarBright Toddler Bed from Worlds Apart, I hastily replied on his behalf.

A bit of background

You see, sleep and Little Mr have had a very turbulent relationship. He loved it as a newborn and slept really, really well. This obviously lulled me and his Daddy into a false sense of happiness when it came to bedtime to be rudely brought back down to earth with a bump when at 10 months old he refused to go to and stay asleep!

Fast forward, 18 months and a major case of sleep deprivation later and we may have just cracked it with Little Mr sleeping through the night albeit in his cotbed.

Many of Little Mr’s friends have made the move from cotbed to toddler bed and as a first time parent, I was a little unsure of when to begin the move for Little Mr. Making the transition from cotbed to toddler bed is a huge deal, especially for toddlers who a) love to sleep in the safety of their cotbed and aren’t comfortable with the freedom an actual bed with no sides brings; or b) hate being trapped in their cotbed and often climb out. Luckily for us, Little Mr is a little bit lazy and hasn’t decided to embark on scaling the sides in a bid for freedom just yet so I knew we had time to sow the idea of a ‘big boy’ bed and make our slow transition.

When the HelloHome StarBright toddler bed arrived, I was excited. Perhaps this marked the start of his transition as Little Mr loved the idea of a toddler bed just for him. He was even more delighted to discover that the night light in the headboard projects stars onto the wall so he was excited to try it out.

Assembly

The HelloHome StarBright Toddler Bed needs assembling and I took on the task one afternoon when hubby and Little Mr were out shopping* (*unable to provide their opinion and assistance.) It was relatively straight forward to put together with easy to follow instructions and it was up and ready for use within an hour and a half.

StarBright Toddler Bed

The HelloHome StarBright Toddler Bed comes without a mattress but a standard size cotbed mattress (measuring 140cm x 69cm) fits perfectly fine.

Features

  • The toddler bed is the perfect height for little ones to climb in and out of which encourages independence
  • The cloud shaped headboard is adorable and is a real winner
  • The night light projects stars onto the wall and offers light for up to fifteen minutes then automatically turns off
  • Protective side panels at the top end of the bed help to prevent tumbles and offers reassurance to little ones that they’re not going to fall out.
  • A built-in side table which can be used to store books, teddies or can be used as a side seat for parents
  • The toddler bed frame is made from MDF so is really sturdy and can take the weight of an average adult (It’s not recommended but my hubby has actually slept on the toddler bed when we’ve had a rough night with Little Mr)

StarBright Toddler Bed2

How Little Mr has found the toddler bed

Little Mr’s transition from cotbed to toddler bed is still ongoing. We have built the bed and it is currently in Little Mr’s bedroom next to his cotbed. We have had several nights where Little Mr has slept in the toddler bed but has always climbed out during the night and it has made for disturbed nights sleep for everyone. Little Mr does love the toddler bed. He adores the nightlight and will happily lie in the bed looking at the stars above him whilst Daddy reads him a bedtime story and looks rather comfy on his new bed.

LM in bed

Ultimately, Little Mr at the age of 27 months old, still isn’t ready to be moved from his cotbed to his toddler bed permanently so we’re still making the transition but I don’t think it’ll be too long until he’s ready. He loves the Star Bright toddler bed and I know that when the time comes he’ll be happy to climb in and (touch wood) sleep soundly all night long.

Price

The HelloHome StarBright Toddler Bed from Worlds Apart is priced at £149.99 and is available online and in several major retailers. I think the price is great value if you’re looking for a toddler bed which will help make the transition smoother for little ones. I would hope that the bed would last at least a couple of years before they grow out of it and they need to move into a bigger bed.

    Well now, Sebs favourite routine is on a weekend when he spends the day with his Grandad, so he gets a big cuddle from Grandad, who cleans his teeth, more cuddles, into bed, his favourite tractor book and Grandad making all the sounds before night night!

    We have milk whilst being creamed up with his eczema creams, followed by a story from Daddy. Then it is into LO’s bedroom for cuddles, a chat with his teddies and lots of kisses for Mummy. I love our time together before bed. It is so calm.

  • Reply Amanda 03/06/2015 at 10:34 pm

    Ours is bath, PJs, stories and cuddles before bed.

  • Reply Donna 03/06/2015 at 11:17 pm

    That bed is beautiful! At the moment T and LP have a bath together and then we get them into their PJs, read them a story and then LP will read in her book whilst I sort T out. He goes in his sleeping bag, has cuddles with the light off and then goes in his cot with a couple of books and a Thomas Tank toy and plays until he falls asleep – fairly quickly usually! x

    My boys have a bath, get pjs on then have a story when in bed the eldest goes straight to sleep with his milk whilst the littlest must have his monkey comforter and milk to settle, although recently he seems to think that bedtime is playtime!

    Bath, watch a little tv with a milky drink, bedtime story then lights out! Not technology (ie ipads/xboxes etc) after bath time!

    lucas gets his Pj’s on, brushes his teeth, we then have a story in his big sisters room. We tuck her in to bed and then we go to his room have a kiss and cuddle, he gets in to his cot with his Roo bear (from Winnie the Pooh). He says night night mummy, love you, see you in the morning, I say it back and then I leave him to go to sleep. Some nights we have a bath first too. X

    We have a strange routine at the moment, the older two go up to bed and have a story each which my youngest listens too, then I take her back downstairs for Milky before then taking her back upstairs, this started as I wanted the big two to be asleep before she went up so that they didn’t distract her and she just lay down to sleep, I need to get them all going at the same time now, but it seems so hard to break this mad routine I’ve created!!!!!!

    My 2 little ones have me busy at bedtime. It starts by closing the upstairs curtains so it’s dark (hurray for black out blinds!). then bathtime (every other night) story time in my daughters room with hot milk. Then tucked in by daddy when he gets in from work. All by 7pm. They are both in a great routine and i’m so lucky (probably cursed myself now lol)

    Routine, what routine?! We have 2 good sleepers (our 8 yr old goes to bed perfectly and our little boy, born 17/5/15, goes to bed between 7-8pm) but our 2 yr old is totally anti sleep. Sleep is for the weak! We get her ready for bed at the same time as the others, but she refuses to go down. Normally FINALLY falling asleep between 10pm-midnight. Just hoping that something will eventually click in her mind that sleep is a good thing that we all need, including mummy and daddy :-P

I’ve brushed his teeth after dinner so I don’t habe to sdisturb him too much. He’s usually out for the count as soon as I lay him down to which I’m eternally greatful ;)

It’s a bubble bath, favourite pj’s and sleeping bag, then a couple of stories whilst giving him a massage with an asda NSPA massager, which he loves, followed by lying next to him making up stories or pretending to be asleep, until he finally gives in at 10pm then I put him in his cotbed
