Little Tikes Race Car Bed – Tips on Buying and Assembling

With the release of Disney’s animated Cars and their upcoming Cars 2, the Little Tikes Race Car bed has become popular once again in many young children’s bedrooms. If you’re thinking of buying one of these great beds, read on and I’ll give you the top tips you need to know when buying and assembling one of these great beds.

Why choose a racing car bed?

That’s a good question, and the answer is that most parents have found these beds to be great when their toddler has been making the transition from crib to bed and with these beds it couldn’t be easier. Many parents were thrilled to discover that their young son was even going to bed earlier, just for the pleasure of sleeping in his new racing bed. Going to bed can now be a pleasurable experience, and he knows that he will sleep comfortably with his new friend and even better in his own room.

What bed to choose?

First of all, what are the options for Little Tikes race car beds? Well first there is the most popular bed which is Little Tikes Lightning McQueen Race Car Twin Bed. This is the bed based on the little character from the aforementioned Disney movie. The bed is red with decals to match the ones in the movie. This little character has been popular with young children all over the world and having a bed like this has never been so much fun.

The second bed option is the Little Tikes Sports Car Standard Twin Bed, which is exactly the same as the Little Tikes Lightning McQueen Race Car Bed in dimensions and shape, but without the Lightning McQueen decals. These beds come in a choice of colours, be it primary blue, cherry red, white, green, yellow, black and there’s even pink for your little Miss Penelope Pitstop.

Finally, Little Tikes has produced the Little Tikes Lightning McQueen Roadster Toddler Bed, so now even toddlers between the ages of 15 months and 5 years can have their own cute bed. These beds look exactly the same as the previous beds, but are much smaller in size.

Safe sleeping: How safe?

This is one of the biggest questions parents want to know, and with a Little Tikes career bed, you can be sure you’ll be very safe.

The sides of these beds are tall enough that you don’t need to add rails, and these sides rise toward the top end of the bed. They get lower on the foot, allowing our Little Boy Racer to climb onto your bed or slide down and out. One thing you don’t need to worry about is that there won’t be any problem with it rolling around in your sleep.

How strong are these beds?

These beds are strong! If you’re familiar with other Little Tikes products, you’ll know that they only make quality products, and these race car beds are no exception. Made of double-wall plastic construction, these beds are made with the “pebbled” plastic common with other Little Tikes products, and these beds will be able to handle the most boisterous playtime.

What should I consider before buying one of these beds?

The most important thing to consider is the space needed for one of these beds. They are larger than a standard bed, so make sure you have enough space. Also, if you’re ordering online, be sure to schedule your delivery time for when it’s there because the box is big.

What is not included with one of these beds?

These beds are designed to fit a standard size double mattress which you must provide yourself. The Lightning McQueen Roadster Toddler Bed uses the smallest standard US crib mattress. You also need to provide your own box springs, or if you prefer, you can use a bunk bed support board.

The bed comes with three wooden mattress supports, but these alone will not support the mattress. These can be placed on two levels depending on how high or low you would like the mattress to be.

Will I be able to put together one of these beds?

Yes, don’t worry, you won’t have any problems. The only tool you will need is a screwdriver and the assembly instructions are very easy to read and understand. On average, it takes about an hour to assemble, with some people doing it in less.

The only care that is really needed is when applying the decals as they can be a bit tricky. It’s probably best to apply these first before putting the bed together, though you won’t be able to do this with the wheels because they need to be screwed on first because the decal will cover the center screw. The thing to remember when applying the decals is to be patient and take your time. Personally, I would recommend that you ask someone to help you hold the other side of the decal while it is being applied.

Running to the land of dreams

Just look at the surprise on his face when he walks into his new room to see his Little Tikes Race Car Bed waiting there for his new friend, and most importantly, you can be safe in the knowledge that he is happy and safe dreaming of the open road through of dreamland.
