Step2 Lifestyle Twin Bed – Best Deal
Nice but vertical ladder not designed for kids.
Assembly was easy. For kids though, the ladders are a little too vertical. My 4 year old would have prefered the steps offset just enough to see them. Once she got used to swinging her legs over the side and finding a step it was okay, but getting to that point was a little iffy.
If they made it so each step was 2 or 4 inches farther out than the previous one, it would give young ones a little bit more confidence and it would keep me and my wife from worrying about midnight potty runs.

Great bed but spend an extra $14.00….
The $14.00 is for a piece of subfloor from Lowes. I agree the supports under the mattress are not great. So I went to Lowes bought a piece of OSB Subfloor 38.5″ wide 75″ long is the measurement. Standard twin bunkie board size is 39 x 75 but this would have been too wide. This makes this bed the PERFECT bed. SUPER sturdy and will last many years. My 6’4″ 250 lb hubby climbs in bed with my 2 year old and the thing doesn’t budge. I will agree that the material is a little rough when making the bed

Good, but has design flaws that Step 2 will not fix
We spent a great deal of time researching ‘big boy’ beds for our sons birthday and were very excited when we found this one.
As previously mentioned, it was very easy to put together and our son loves it, but…there are 2 major design flaws. 1) the doors do not hang straight and so it really looks shabby and used. 2) box spring cannot be used as it would make the top of the bed almost as high as the railings and the mattress that we have to use on its own sags between the support bars.
