Are there any good quality twin beds anymore?

We are looking for a twin bed for my grandson who is almost 2. We are leaning toward a captains bed. We want one that is sturdy and will hold up to a little abuse. What are your experiences with them? Does "good quality" still exist? What kind did you buy or recommend? Can you give my any advice on what not to buy?

As a kid I slept on a foam mattress and loved it. This one's made of high density foam so it should be durable-- http://www.amazon.com/DynastyMattress-Therapeutic-AirFlow-Mattress-Visco-Elastic/dp/B008744KGQ. And it comes with a 20 year warranty which is really good. I'd also recommend getting a vinyl mattress protector for it, to protect from any "accidents." This is a good one we've used-- http://protectivebedding.com/heavy-duty-zippered-vinyl-mattress-protector.html

Here is a link that might be useful: mattress protector

There are water proff cloth feeling mattress protectors with somekind of poly type layer built in out now which are almost as good. They making it through a few washings even. IMO an adult will appreciate them but a kid may not notice the difference.

Mattresses....ug...just buy whatever with a law tag reading "all new materials" and a 2014 date from a place with no sleep trial. Sleep trial failure mattresses just don't seem to get thrown away as often as they should. An alternative would be saying "you have one in stock?inspect it and if the tag is more than a couple weeks old say " Thats ok, I'll wait for the new one next week." Mattress retailes you would never suspect are dirty shady people who think Jesus does not watch them at work.

Wood beds? There is a small not ridiculously priced group called New Classic Furniture which makes good quality youth and adult furniture. Don't order sight unseen. At least go someplace that displays a few of their sets. They are imported, use a fair amount of wood. Have nice drawers and will not cost you as much as your first car.
