Product Recalls. Although they rarely make big news, bunk beds and loft beds are not immune to product recalls. There have been instances when models have been recalled due to faulty workmanship, guardrail safety and potential for child entrapment. Most reputable dealers keep on top of bunk bed and loft bed recalls and remove those items from their inventory promptly. Still, as with all purchases, it is best to check the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and do your homework before buying.
Is at least one of your children old enough to sleep in the top of the bunk bed? While bunk beds can be a great choice for kids, the sheer height of a top bunk bed makes it unsafe for a younger child who still rolls out of bed. If you are going to purchase a bed now, and you have any fears at all that your child may be at risk on the top of a bunk bed, then consider the trundle bed more seriously, or wait until your children are old enough to handle the higher sleeping height. Many manufacturers recommend a child be over six years or age before you consider purchasing a bunk bed for use by a child.
