My 5 year old daughter and I have very different opinions of this bed. She LOVES it and calls it her "princess bed" she adorned the headboard with stickers of fairies and gemstones almost immediately which is OK with me because it's PVC. From an adult perspective, however, the bed is not good. The quality of construction is TERRIBLE. Holes don't match up, screws and nails are sticking out (not pointing out at a child but towards the inside) at odd angles. I mean, it does not even look like it was made by a professional carpenter. I barely scraped by with a C in middle school wood shop and I could probably do a better job than this. The wooden slats are very thin and bowed so that the mattress wobbled around on top of them. I fully expect them to break so my husband and I are planning to replace them with plywood or something more substantial. Also, we were hoping that because the corners are covered in vinyl they wouldn't be sharp--no luck. So yeah, it's a poor quality bed. BUT the kid loves it and as long as it lasts until she's over her pink-everything (we bought the "lavender" but it's really a purplish pink) phase it will have been worth its low price.
The girls absolutely loved the beds when they saw them, we bought two, but putting them together was nearly impossible. You could tell the products were assembled quickly assembly line style by people who likely have little to no carpentry experience. There were some holes missing, some parts were crooked and made it very difficult to get the bed together. We had to be very creative and use tools to correct THEIR workmanship just so we could get the bed together. Also, they put the ink and paper insert directly on top of the PVC fabric, causing it to imprint the ink into the fabric. Not sure if I will be able to get it off. Overall, very dissatisfied. If it wasn't such a pain in the bum to take apart I'd return them.
WHEN WE OPEN IT MY DAUGHTER WAS IN LOVE SHE IS A TEEN AND SHE THOUGHT IT WAS JUST THE RIGHT FIT FOR HER...I THOUGHT IT WAS MORE OF A LITTLE GIRLS BED BUT WHEN I SAW IT IN HER ROOM IT REALLY IS FOR ANY AGE....SHE JUST LOVE IT AM SO HAPPY WITH IT BUT BE CAREFUL BECAUSE HER'S DID HAVE A TEAR IN IT ON TOP HEADBOARD SHE LOVES IT SO MUCH THAT WE JUST COVERED IT UP WITH A THROW BLAKET....

Is the base solid or slats? What is the maximum weight capacity?jafo19 on Mar 19, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for your inquiry on the Lavender Youth Twin Bed. It does have full bolted down slats. It doesn’t have a “capacity” but is designed for a youth. Hope this helps.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 22, 2013
