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!
If you need a basic bed for a guest bedroom or an adult child's room this is the bed. It is very sturdy, took me less than an hour to put together by myself and the price was perfect. It looks exactly like the picture. I added a box spring but all you need is the mattress.
