John Lewis Boris Toddler Bedstead, White
Strong overpowering smell
The bed is fine, but it is the strong over powering smell that I noticed when putting it together. A strong varnish-type fumey smell. Really worried about our son inhaling this.
Have now just read 2 reviews with same problem. Will contact John Lewis for explanation and exchange.

Excellent Toddler Bed
Bought for our two year old daughter, as her first bed. It came flat packed but was easy to build and for a piece of flat packed furniture has built beautifully. We are extremely happy with the quality for the money that we paid. My daughters mattress from her cot also fitted in it, so there was no need for us to buy a new mattress. We would definitely recommend this product to others.

Boris Toddler Bed
I bought the Boris bed in white 2 months ago and ordered it through the Kingston store.
Is it really solid pine or something else e.g. mdf? It seems to give off fumes and after 2 months it still smells strange. Is it the paint finish?
The bed is sturdy , attractive and stylish but the smell fills the whole room. Is it a bad batch or are they all like that?
I would like John Lewis to contact me.

Fantastic product, would highly recommend!
Despite our son having a cot bed we decided that at 16 months we wanted to put him into a proper toddler bed. After researching in great detail all the other options at other retailers we decided that this bed gave us exactly what we were looking for at an extremely competitive price. Customer reviews were also a leading factor as it has been rated so highly. The quality of the bed is as you would expect from John Lewis excellent and assembly was quick and easy. We would highly recommend this bed if you are looking for a toddler bed and our son settled into it straightaway and loves it.

A fantastic junior bed
Well built, easy to assemble, a great first bed. We got this bed for our daughter who at 18 months had started climbing out of her cot. The bed is nice and low so she can get in and out easily and the safety rails are just enough to stop her rolling out.

Easy to assemble and excellent quality for the price. My son loves it and shows any visitors his "big boy bed".
