Should you buy the IKEA Sundvik Toddler bed

Hi, I’m Daniel Rubio, in this series I review the stuff that I use. In hopes that it helps you make an educated purchase.

Today I’m reviewing the Ikea Sundvik toddler bed

Let’s check it out.

The product

Today we are looking into the Ikea Sundvik extendable toddler bed.

Leave a comment if you love IKEA.

The total cost of this bad boy is 169 bucks. All the links to the products mentioned are in the description.

The size of the bed at its smallest is 50 inches and at its longest 77 and 1/2 inches.

It’s 31 and 1/2 inches tall with a width of 42 inches.

The bed is was design to grow with you child. It has a slated bed base that comes in the total price.

The solid pine frame holds a max load of 220 pounds- so don’t expect this monkey to be jumping on the bed.

Finally the mattress is stiff but not terrible.

Pros and Cons

The toddler bed is pretty self-explanatory. My coworker gave me it to me because the got a new one and we need one— shout out to good friends everywhere. And boy, has Amilia loved it.

Assembly took about 30 to 45 minutes give or take 10 minutes, to look for screws and adjusting the bed.

We currently use it at it’s shortest length, but it’s super easy to extend it. We ended up doing it so when my mom stayed with us last summer.

I will say that my Sadie and I have layed on the bed with and without Amilia and it still holds strong.

It’s the perfect height for your toddler who is wanting a little more independence. We haven’t had any issue with our toddler falling of the bed and she has LOVE having it.

The only con, that I can tell, is to get the most out of it you need their special adjustable mattress. The bed slates also warped when it was in storage but it wasn’t the worst thing in the world and you can order new ones.

This product is a great buy if you are looking for a bed for your child but don’t want to buy toddler bed and then a twin bed. You’re child will love the independence and so will you.

Or you’ll hate it.

What comforter/duvet and sheets do you use for the smallest setting? I've only found the ikea LEN sheets to fit the smallest size with no extension, but no comforter. Any suggestions?

So we ended up just using a regular comforter but tucked underneath the mattress. I believe that ikea sells the right size but we weren't sure we'd use the smaller size for more than 6 months and didn't buy it. hope that helps.
