Bunk beds with slide and tent are one of the most awesome things you can buy your kids. Their imagination is wild and full of play, so getting them a bed that corresponds to their playfulness is always a plus in everyone’s eyes.
I do have to though that by bunk bed you probably meant a loft bed.
There aren’t many, if any, bunk beds that come with a tent that has a built-in slide on it. It would be awesome, of course, but having a tent below would kinda obstruct a person who sleeps on the lower bunk.
But if you meant a loft bed (a single bed that is high above the ground with enough space for anything underneath), then you’ve come to the right place.
It is my job to review these kinds of beds and I want to shield you and your kids from trash that is out there. Trust me, there is a lot of that. One time I found a product that promised a whole lot in the title and in the picture, but once you got the bunk bed it turned out that not only was it in the worst condition I’ve ever seen, but it did not have all the parts it was advertised with.
If there is anyone deserving a ‘false advertisement’ title, that’s the one.
Anyhow, here are the best bunk beds (loft beds) that have an awesome covering as well as a ‘slide and glide’ option.
Coaster Home Furnishings Kids Camo Tent Twin Loft Bunk Bed with Slide – Camouflauge
It’s ‘camouflage’, not ‘camouflauge’. I know, it’s completely off the topic but I decided to a bit of a grammar geek right now.
That doesn’t steer me from the fact that this camo tent loft bed is awesome!It can withstand around 300 pounds of weight, it weighs only 132 pounds, its metal is not cheap at all, despite what you might think, and because of that, it won’t have any problems with swaying.
It is rather large so you won’t be taking it with you to camping, even though it has a camo tent 😉
In fact, it’s rather big even so to take the dimensions of it seriously when thinking of where to place it – 115″ length, 100″ width, 50″ height. As you can see, the width part and the length isn’t small at all, so make sure you have enough room.
Speaking of camo tents, it does remind me of one particular product that is mostly used for camping. In one of my first articles on this site about kids camping bunk beds, I saw this one (in the picture). I am glad the manufacturers are making so many awesome designs. This camo tent suits it well. On this loft bed, it is also detachable so you can either remove it or even buy it separately if you wish. If I am not mistaken, the price for the tent, which is made of vinyl cloth, was only $150.
In terms of the slide itself, I have no real gripes with it. It is a tiny bit ‘boxy’ for my taste, but it doesn’t really make anyone’s lives uncomfortable, so your kids can use it with ease. After all, who didn’t love slides when they were little?
I chose this one just because of how adverse it is in color options. At the moment there are colors like blue, camo, pink, red, zebra. So whether you have a boy or a girl, it doesn’t even matter because it has a variety of choices – for each gender, at least two different suitable colors.
For example, this one was designed so horribly that it’s downright dangerous to sleep on it.
So because of that, I am grateful to see a bunk bed that has a slide AND it is made out of wood. Usually, the ones with slides are completely made of metal. The material is solid pine for it, so that means it is a bit susceptible to scratches, but if you are going to be careful, that won’t be an issue.
The tent is obviously much different from the previous option that I suggested, so it doesn’t extrude outwards. The height between the floor and the bed is around 28 inches, so it’s perfect for younger kids.
Powell Princess Castle Twin Tent Bunk Bed with Slide
Who says girls don’t like tents? Turn on the imagination and you could make some really awesome bunk bed designs with tents and slides.It actually looks like a fort. A castle that has a princess in it. Although we are past the age of playing around, our kids can do it themselves, and this fort bed is ideal for it.
It has a protection dome covering the bunk bed (or loft bed in this case) and it gives it the feeling of a shelter where you can hide should something happen.
When I was little, I was definitely using my bunk bed to play as if it’s a place of safe haven. I covered all the sides in the lower bunk and was imagining that someone was out to get me, and I am completely hidden and protected from them with my bed.
Although I loved my bunk bed at that time, I wish I had a slide like this one has. You can smoothly and easily come down, as the slide itself is smooth and sturdy. What better way to wake your girl up than by feeling those butterflies every time you go down.
Another huge plus for slides is that you don’t have to deal with the ladders. Stairs are comfortable but they cost too much, but slides aren’t very expensive (somewhere in the middle in terms of price), and they are a lot more comfortable with getting down. Ladders cause this awkward angle that you have to create when climbing down, and that can sometimes lead to falling.
Trust me, been there done that.
So, don’t hesitate seeing it for yourself. You can get it right now:
