My daughter loves her bed.MICHELLEMy daughter loves her bed.5
Sturdy bed, a little difficult to put togetherThangVery sturdy and well made bed. The only problematic spot is one of the side rail. It refuses to be flush to the bed frame. I even jumped on it trying to push it down with no luck. Otherwise, the bed is wonderful and my daughter absolutely loves it. She jumps around on it for months without any issue at all.5
Parts don’t fitJake J.I have to say, I’ve never written a bad review about Ikea but this has to be the worst assembly experience. Dowels are either too long or too thick and screws are too weak. I’m a pretty strong male and parts simply don’t fit because I can’t fit them together. Now one of the screws is broken because pieces don’t close in gaps. I understand the return policy but such a hassle to go back and forth loading and unloading this product. It won’t come apart either because the dowels are stuck together so hardly.1
Super cuteKimi P.I read all the bad reviews and got iffy about it but my daughter loves it and it wasn’t hard to build!5
Not recommendedPOOJAThe dowels are a pain to use! Also, the parts need to be marked a-a or left/right for ease! I would have gone up with rating if there were screws instead of dowels! It took almost a day for me to assemble! I have been assembling all my furniture myself since 10+ years but never faced such a situation before! Now, I need to move the bed to a different room for which I will have to dissemble it and its already giving me a nightmare!! The screws/dowels/other parts that join the bed are so damn snug!2
Nice bed but the Quality is badDanywhen I bought it and took out everything from the boxes, the bed came damages in some corners. This is a nice Looking bed, but the quality of the wood is not resistant, anything can scratch it, anything small can take out and destroy the thin color paper surrounding the bed. So you need to be very careful when you install the bed.3
Bed frame brokeMe0910My husband and I spent the day fixing broken slats on the bed frame. I’m very disappointed in Ikea. I purchased this for my two year old (now three) and expected a design that could uphold child’s play every now and then. The frame just doesn’t make any sense and the slats split in half. My husband and I spent this evening trying to find away to connect the main support beam and reattach it back to the bed frame when it broke. Terrible just terrible.1
Don’t waste your money!Bri2211Unfortunately I purchased this for my toddler thinking it would be a great bed but we were horribly wrong! It’s poorly designed and the middle pieces that are supposed to hold the bed up do not do their job! IKEA IS NO HELP with the issues I’m having as I’ve reached out multiple times and got nowhere, no help nothing but a message saying go talk to someone at the store! Definitely DO NOT recommend!1
LakeyaI currently have this bed and noticed with its full out, it was to long. I would like to order the hemnes twin bed. ( 402.495.60) will this bed be as long as the busunge bed ?5
My daughter loves it but design could be sturdyTejindereDesign is really good. My daughter loves her “pink princess” bed. The middle of the frame and support could be made sturdier ..my daughter (35 lbs) jumped on her bed and the middle frame cracked..request Ikea to add more beam in the middle4
Great quality and super cute & cozyMSK505We’ve had this bed for 3 years and we still love it. My daughter is about to turn 5, and the bed has grown with her wonderfully. The frame and frame finish are very durable. The slats have withstood some epic jumping from my little girls (although I do NOT condone or recommend jumping! But, it happens). It’s easy to adjust, and has maintained its durability through multiple adjustments. The mattress is kind of a pain while putting sheets on, it has multiple parts which allows for the extend ability. Once sheets are on though, it’s very cozy. i do recommend getting the IKEA sheets in the various sizes as traditional twin sheets fit pretty loose. And, most importantly, my daughter LOVES it. I’m about to buy an additional bed for our youngest who is two. Our first bed has held up so well, we can’t pass it down as originally intended. Great problem to have!5
Great bedCC2019We’ve had the bed for 3 years and it’s still in great shape. No bowing like other people have mentioned. We put a memory foam topper on top of the mattress and it’s very comfortable. I’ve slept on it a few times and felt great the next day.5
Sturdybeanie1Straightforward to put together. Sturdy bed that should be perfect for my daughter for the next few years. She loves that it is pink!4
Extremely let downIris05I bought this bed for my daughter because I loved how it extended sad to say I’m on such a tight budget I can’t even afford to buy something else!!! the frame broke it’s so badly made it’s not even a year old I just want to cry.. ikea you can do so much better come on this is a child bed... I hope someone can reach out to me and send a replacement frame1
Rickety FrameAnonymous reviewerMy daughter loved this bed when we first bought it. But not long after the wooden slats started to break so that her bed is severely bowed in the middle. I would not re omens this product. It has been an unfortunate waste of money as we were hoping Robbie able to reuse it for her younger sisters.2
Not sturdy!TgvenableWe purchased 2 of these beds for our 3 and 4 year old. We thought it would be a great investment because of its ability to extend. We were greatly disappointed. The bottom of the bed started to break. We contacted customer service a few times but with no luck. After attempting to fix the bed we finally gave in and purchased new beds. The bed is also very heavy.1
Great BedEmely11We got this bed for our daughter and she fall in love with it. Thanks5
needyits more of a question would anyone know if this bead is a twin bead or a full ?5
Perfect fit for our room, and for growth.Deke513Bought this last month. We couldn't get our 2 year old daughter to sleep alone. First night we bought this, she loaded it with her new pillows and slept alone. She loves it.5
Not sturdy! And too widekhyberWe bought this for our 5 year old a few months ago. Within a few days of her sleeping on it, we noticed that the bed had buckled in the middle. The wood plank in the middle of frame that allows it to extend is a weak link. By far the most frustrating buy from Ikea.1

Our take on wood

Wood is the material most commonly associated with IKEA furniture, and for good reasons. It’s renewable, recyclable, durable, ages beautifully and it is an important part of our Scandinavian design heritage. At IKEA, we believe that sourced in responsible way, wood is a key change driver for climate mitigation. In 2012, we set a goal that by 2020 our wood would be from more sustainable sources. We are happy to announce that we have reached this goal and today, more than 98% of the wood used for IKEA products is either FSC-certified or recycled.

Forests are critical for life on earth

Forests contribute to maintaining balance in the atmosphere, purify the air that we breathe and are part of the water cycle. They nourish wildlife biodiversity and provide homes for indigenous communities who depend on forests for their livelihoods. 90% of plant and animal species living on the planet need forests to survive. They provide sources of food, fuel, timber and many other ecosystem services that we rely upon. Sourcing approximately 19 million m3 of roundwood per year from some 50 countries, IKEA has a significant impact on the world’s forests and the timber industry and a huge responsibility to positively influence how wood is sourced. Responsible wood sourcing and forest management ensure that the needs of people dependent on forests are met, that businesses can work sustainably, that forest ecosystems are protected and biodiversity is enhanced.

100% wood from more sustainable sources

At IKEA, we work with strict industry standards to promote responsible forestry. We don’t allow any wood in our supply chain from forest areas that are illegal or contain high conservation values or from forest areas with social conflict. Before starting to work with IKEA, suppliers must demonstrate that they meet IKEA critical requirements on wood sourcing. IKEA requires all suppliers to source wood from more sustainable sources (FSC-certified or recycled wood). All suppliers are audited regularly and non-compliant suppliers are required to implement immediate corrective actions. By working together with our suppliers, we are proud to announce that we have reached our more sustainable sources goal, which we set out to achieve by 2020. Today more than 98% of the wood used for IKEA products is either FSC-certified or recycled.

IKEA Forest Positive Agenda for 2030

As pressure on the world’s forests and the surrounding eco-systems increases due to unsustainable agriculture, the expansion of infrastructure and illegal logging, it is time to take an even more holistic approach to protect and support these important resources for generations to come. The IKEA Forest Positive Agenda for 2030 set out to improve forest management, enhance biodiversity, mitigate climate change and support the rights and needs of people who depend on forests across the whole supply chain and drive innovation to use wood in even smarter ways. The agenda focuses on three key areas: • Making responsible forest management the norm across the world. • Halting deforestation and reforesting degraded landscapes. • Driving innovation to use wood in smarter ways by designing all products from the very beginning to be reused, refurbished, remanufactured, and eventually recycled.

We accomplish more by working together

For many years, IKEA has partnered with businesses, governments, social groups and non-governmental organisations to fight forest degradation and deforestation and increase the volume and availability of wood from responsibly managed forests both for our own supply chain and beyond. We are on a journey to improve global forest management and make responsible wood sourcing the industry standard, contributing to building resilient forest landscapes and improve biodiversity.

What is constructed board?

We use constructed boards when manufacturing many of our pieces of furniture, such as tables and wardrobes. They are light and resource-efficient, yet still stable and strong. Each board has a frame made of chipboard, fiberboard or solid wood, while the inside is a honeycomb filling structure made of mostly recycled paper, which is extra durable thanks to its special construction. The board is then covered with a protective paint, foil or veneer depending on the style wanted.

Designer thoughts

Designer thoughts

“When I designed the BUSUNGE furniture series I thought about how children use their room and relate to the furniture. I have a 4-year-old myself and know that a child’s room is their own territory – and their furniture should both inspire play and be safe to play with. That's why I rounded all the edges. And scaled the furniture to a child’s size so it would be comfortable to use and encourage them to be independent. With durable surfaces and an enduring style, BUSUNGE will last for a long time. I hope you even pass it down to a younger sister or brother – it’s good for the environment!”
