To be honest I wasn't as enthusiastic as my wife, Adele, as I wanted to leave it as long as possible, let me explain.. Our beautiful little boy Jacob, looks like butter wouldn't melt in his mouth, but he has the amazing ability to destroy everything in his path! Everything the little fella touches is de-constructed and hidden down the back of the sofa, inside another toy or even stuffed into his nappy.

I was trying to cling on to those last moments where he'd be imprisoned in his cot, safe from harm and not ravaging his lovely little bedroom! However, his room's quite small and it's very limited to where his cot was placed which was by his window. When he woke up after one particular afternoon nap session I caught a glimpse in the baby monitor that he was in the process of climbing out of his cot and onto the window ledge!

Subsequently a few more escape attempts were undertaken, Jacob crashing down on the floor after scaling the perimeter of his prison cot - enough was enough, obviously we didn't want him to get hurt so the cot sadly had to go.

Jacob, age 2, our second child has a completely different personality to his older sister Amber, age 9, so it was unfamiliar ground 'again' on how he'd react to an open bed. With a strict night time routine that works really well , we wanted to try and still make bedtime enjoyable and have a bed that he'd want to sleep in, so being a passionate Disney Pixar 'Cars' fan it seemed a 'no brainer' to try a Cars 2 Lightning McQueen toddler bed from Worlds Apart.

It's just the right height at 54cm for him to climb into and has protective side panels near the pillow area to stop him rolling out. Built out of solid MDF it makes for a sturdy bed that took me less than an hour to build and manoeuvre into his room.

As you'll agree Lightning McQueen looks very cool and Jacob loves it, it's even got a very handy large storage drawer built into his bonnet so we can quickly throw all of Jacobs toys into it! Their range is entirely chemical free and breathable, ensuring all little ones get the best sleep from day one.

    We are convinced that along with our bedtime routine, these have helped both our children to be great sleepers and can't recommend them enough to other parents.
