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.
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.
