There are some pretty cool styles in toddler beds and they aren't expensive but you may not really need one. Choosing a bed that will work for the growing years and placing the mattress on the floor alone is an option that eliminates the need for these special toddler type beds. Once the child outgrows the toddler bed, you will want to consider a conventional bed - twin or full size, bunk, loft, futon, divan, trundle, etc. One or more of these can be used for the rest of this "growing child stage.
The second stage is age two and beyond. Once the child is able to climb out of the crib, you need to start thinking of other types of beds. Again, safety is the most important consideration. You don't want the child to fall out of a bed so you will be looking for something close to the ground or you will want to use portable side rails. Toddler beds or cribs that convert into a crib bed usually come to mind. Crib beds are a little larger than toddler beds but both can be used up to about the age of five or six, depending on the size of your child.
