The heart of this playhouse configuration is the Low / Easy Rider loft bed from Maxtrix Kids bedroom line. The bed itself (without the tent) is only 50 inches high, and that includes the side rails -- the mattress actually lies about 40 inches off the ground which is great for safety reasons: less to fall from, and suitable for smaller kids too. The bed comes bundled with under bed curtains which cover three sides. Also included is a tent, complete with wooden structure and cloth, that is mounted on top of the bed. Both the curtain and tent are made of 100% cotton and feature windows and doors that can be opened and closed. Multiple color combinations are available. For boys: blue-and-white, blue-red-yellow and blue-red-white. Girls have even more options to choose from: the pink-and-white mix is what most people go for, but there are other appealing combinations too, such as the purple-and-blue or yellow-and-green. The images below (click on thumbnails to enlarge) show most of the available solutions. Note that only the under bed curtains are depicted (no tent), but for the purpose of choosing color that should do fine.
The loft bed itself is made of solid birch hardwood, which bodes well for its durability. In addition, Maxtrix offers a 5 year limited warranty for factory related defects (materials and workmanship).
Safety is another area that Maxtrix pays special attention to: their products meet all mandatory and voluntary regulations and even exceed some of them, such as the safety rails height and the bed weight limit.
All Maxtrix's kids loft beds come with two types of ladders: the straight (or vertical) and the angled ladder. The straight variety is probably a better option when there is less space to go around. In a way, it could also be considered safer, as it doesn't constitute a barrier to trip over. The angled ladder, on the other hand, requires more space, but in exchange it offers a more comfortable and easier climb to the top bed, plus it comes with a sturdy metal handrail which is a rather unique extra safety measure. It is altogether a somewhat fancier option, so it does also cost a bit more. Note that both types of ladders feature extra wide grooved steps for a safe and comfortable access to the loft bed.

As is the case with all Maxtrix beds, the Low Rider and Easy Rider loft beds (if you're wondering what's the difference, the Low Rider comes with the straight ladder, and the Easy Rider with the angled one) come as part of Maxtrix's adaptable room building system. How does that work? Thanks to the innovative ROCK LOCK™ leg extensions, a regular bed can be converted into a Low, Mid, High Loft or Bunk Bed. Bed conversions are easy and safe as Maxtrix's system compresses the leg extensions onto the bed legs, via a steel bolt, and includes set screws that wedge themselves into the bolt opening -- the result should be a rock solid connection.
But bed conversion is not where the customization aptitude of this system ends; rather, it merely opens up the myriad of possibilities. For example, let's say you've started your journey with a day bed for a toddler. As the child grows so do his/hers needs and wants and in a couple of years you find that lifting the bed into a low loft version -- which is done easily and inexpensively just by adding the extension legs and ladder -- makes a lot of sense; the kid can handle a low loft by now and the gained space below the bed is oh so much fun, especially if curtained off. You may even decide to increase the fun factor by adding a tent or a castle add-on, perhaps a slide and, why not, the tower veil to complete the picture. Then in a couple of more years the school starts and priorities change again. The underbed curtains go off and are replaced by a roll-in student desk and storage drawers to hold all that school stuff and additional clothes for a budding student. And maybe, just maybe, you'll want to lift the bed a little higher still, into a mid loft or even a high loft to be able to fit even more stuff underneath. Or, in case life decides to throw you a curve ball and presents you with another (unplanned) offspring, that space will come as a godsend to place another bed in. So, as you see, this system truly does grow with your -- and your children's -- needs.
