Ty The T-Rex Dinosaur Incredibed


I have to say that as a mom of four (triplets, plus one more born within a year) and as a mommy blogger who is constantly pitched by brands with some pretty cool ideas, I've never seen anything quite like this.  Based on my initial reaction, I'm betting that kids will actually look forward to bedtime with this fairy tale friendly dinosaur-themed kid's bed pictured here from Incredibeds of Orlando, Florida.

T-Rex Incredibed Giveaway - Details Below

According to the maker, this bed is suitable for children ages 3 and up, but that parents may add the matching bumper transition sheets  (available separately for an additional $29) to this, making it an ideal transitional bed for toddlers as young as 18 months old who are ready to move out of their cribs.

The animal-shaped bed, made from hypoallergenic materials, is 100% machine wash and dry. It's also simple to set up, zipping around the outside of a standard 39" x 75" American or 36" x 80" European twin mattress and box spring that you provide.  Most importantly, "It is consumer-tested and safety-approved," says dad Jeremy Maloney, who first made one of these stuffed animal-like bed creations for his own child.

The Incredibeds Ty, the Tyrannosaurus plush bed frame retails for $339 and includes his signature eyes and black hair piece,4 furniture glides (which adhere to the bottom of your mattress's box spring), 2 round pillows with one rectangle pillow, and pockets in the hands to give themselves a hug or to "knock the scary's out of the room."  The exterior fabric is 100% polyester, while the interior lining is 100% cotton with 100% hypoallergenic polyester fill.  The included zipper sheet is 100% woven cotton.  Optional matching sheets, called Bedjammies, available separately.

Surprisingly, this child's bedroom furniture concept is quite functional, yet also is designed for fun, comfort and safety.  A total of six different Incredibed cozy, cuddly plush bed frame characters are now available in stores and online including Ty, the Tyrannosaurus Rex Dinosaur for boys that is the focus of this review, plus two other models for little guys: Duke the Dog and Bo the Grizzly Bear.  Girls can choose from Penelope the Girl Grizzly Bear, Daisy the Female Floppy-Earred Dog, and Rexy the Girl T-Rex.  As you might imagine, each of these comes with its own animal personality and story, too.

The Incredibeds are available at retailers such as Toys R' Us, Babies R' Us,, MorFurniture For Less, Rooms to Go, and others.  For more details, current availability, and store locations visit The Incredibeds or 800-991-2372.
