Transitioning from a crib to a toddler bed and then to a big kid bed is a big deal, and there’s bound to be some big feelings around it (for both you and your child). But transitions can also be fun — especially when it means getting to do a little decorating! Big kids might get excited about a new nightstand where they can stash a water bottle, a book, or some special treasures they want to keep close. These 10 favorites span styles and marry form and function so that you and your kid will both be happy.

The Best IKEA Kids' Nightstand

This well-priced staple might be small, but it has a lot more to offer beyond a clean look (with fun pops of color) and a bedside surface. The legs can be mounted several different ways, allowing it to be a tall or long table, or even open-topped or cubby storage. Don’t want the shelves? You can remove them. And there’s one raised knob designed for your little one to hang their headphones, a charger, or some other treasure.
