I had so much fun putting this bed together with a friend! Her son has preschool for 3 hours and we were able to get it done in less time than that so we could surprise him. I had seen pictures of it online, but the headboard looked even cooler in person. I even laid on the bed for a while and tested out how the light works for reading. It's awesome! It has different brightness settings and you can set a timer for it to turn off, which is great if you have a child who's afraid of the dark, but don't want to waste electricity all night. Yes, the bed plugs in, so no batteries required. I loved reading in bed as a child and used to do so until the wee hours of the morning. My own kids would bring their flashlights to bed and fall asleep with them on while reading. I can only imagine how much we spent on batteries! The shipment comes in two boxes – one quite long and one rather large and rectangular, plus another one comes in the mail with the image you selected. I really wish I could buy these for my kids, but their rooms are so small, we can only do bunkbeds because they have to share. I wonder if there's any way for them to design a bunkbed version? I think even cooler would be a king size version that would hold a few wedding photos. I love that you can upload your own images, even pictures that your kids drew! There is a compartment at the foot of the bed to hold the images you're not using, so you can buy extra ones for Christmas, Halloween, etc. Makes me wish I were a kid again!
We bought this for our "kids room"/spare room. It's a beautiful bed first of all. We got the trundle to go with it, so we can handle 3 grandkids at a time! They love the different images. If anything, it is a fight to decide which one is going in! The light function is awesome. I used to do a timer light on my kids--now I can do it with the grandkids! And on a remote, no less! I am very happy with this bed!
My son has had his bed for about a year now. He loves it! It provides a nightlight for him to go to bed but automatically cuts off based on the time you have set. The inserts make changing his room theme very easy & inexpensive to do. The storage in the foot board keeps your extra images safe. We surprised him with a custom photo insert of his "swimming with the dolphins" adventure from our summer vacation. I wish they made these beds in king size :-)
