    Default Canopy beds - or a bed that looks like a tent?

    DC is 4yo and will soon switch from crib to bed. DC is wanting a "bed that looks like a tent." I've googled a few things online but would love a personal recommendation. Does anyone have anything similar? I've thought about a canopy of some sort - any recs there too? We fear the switch from crib to bed will be quite onerous with DC who we expect will be highly persistent in getting out of bed and into ours. So we are trying to anticipate and make DC's bed super inviting!

    What about something like this? http://www.walmart.com/ip/Casablanca...72f82b&veh=cse It attaches to the ceiling, then the netting drapes down from the hoop and over the entire bed. It ties really easily above the bed when you want it out of the way. I had one of these when I was in my 20s and wanted something cute and fancy.

    We really liked IKEA's beds with tents last time we looked. They have a couple of tent styles that are detachable. There's a leaf style too which I think is super cool. And nothing is long-commitment which is nice

    We have the Ikea Kura bed with tent and are very happy with it.
