Looking for a cheap toddler bed makes sense in lots of ways. The toddler bed is, after all, a transition item, and is only going to be used for two or three years max before your child is ready to move up into a twin bed. Saving the big bunks for that twin bed purchase and buying a budget toddler bed now is a generally money-smart decision.
Toddlers aren’t gentle on their furniture, though, so you do want to find a budget toddler bed that can stand up to a little rough treatment and that will still look nice six months from now. If you’re buying a new bed every six months because the beds you buy are so flimsy they can’t stand up to regular toddler treatment, you won’t be saving any money.
If you are planning on having more children after this toddler grows up, you may also want to consider buying a higher-quality bed that can be passed on to younger siblings as they reach the toddler age. Of course, buying an affordable toddler bed for each of them is another option.
What is the best place to get a cheap toddler bed? Your cheapest option may be to find friends who have little people that have just graduated into ‘real beds’ and are looking to get rid of their toddler bed. Craigslist is another option. If you’d like a new cheap toddler bed, Amazon is probably one of your best options. There are a wide assortment of nice toddler beds available for well under a hundred dollars.
