Thomas the Tank Engine Beds, Toppers and Bedroom Sets - Convert Bed into Thomas The Train Bed

Updated on March 26, 2011

Creating a Thomas The Tank Engine Bedroom

Creating Your Childs Dream Bedroom Thomas the Tank Engine Bedroom

Recently, my Brother moved into a new house. This afforded his wife an opportunity to finally create a permanent bedroom for her boys. She painted and picked out every piece of furniture. The oldest kid is a Thomas Freak and they even go visit some Thomas the Tank Engine theme park every year. Using this experience of helping to source the needed items for the Thomas the Tank Engine Bedroom I have decided to make as imple guide for anyone else who may want to create a fun Thomas bedroom for their children.

I say, "for their children," but actually, its infintely easier to get the boys to go off to bed or just play alone in the bedroom, which affords more chances for Mommy and Daddy time. A good bedroom that your child loves is a an investment into your sanity!

Thomas the Tank Engine Bunk Beds

If we consider the standard "2.5 kids and a picket fence" as a reality, then you will do best to invest in a Bunk Bed for your kids, you will have one mattress for each child and the .5 kid can sleep underneath.

I kid, no, I mean your kids will enjoy having the bunk bed more anyway as they get to climb around on it and go through the tunnel. Its like having a jungle gym in your home - but its a bed. Even if you dont understand what Im saying, your Thomas loving kids will.

Thomas The Train Toddler Bed

Perhaps, you dont plan on having 2 kids, thats ok, someone out there is having a a half dozen to make up the average for you. If you still want to pick out a nice fun and affordable Thomas themed Toddler Bed. The Little Tikes bed at just a little over $200 should fit the bill.

To the right you can see a video that will give you an accurate idea of size and quality. Its a good strong little bed and it happens to be the one my nephew has.

Thomas The Tank Engine Bed Topper

Its actually possible to simply convert your existing "normal" toddler bed into a fun, Thomas themed, bed. This is done by purchasing and using a bed topper.

The Thomas and Friends Bed Topper slips around a standard twin bed and is made out of a lightweight material. Its kind of like sticking up a big train tent around the bed. This makes moving it easy. Setting it up is simple. It looks like a fort, and if there is anything that my nephew loves as much as Thomas, its building forts.

They still run around $140 at the cheapest sources I found, but thats still the most affordable option of all the Thomas Bed conversions I could find.
