I think there is a big difference between infant, first bed and kids designs. My interest is more toward the toddler and I love the kind of stuff I see at Olive Kids and Land of Nod. They both use creative solutions to kids design without the need of character licenses like Disney!
Children's Design Clichés & Self-Fulfilling Prophecies

Wow, are you off base with this post. Every kid I know loves classic kids themes. Sure, some products get old and designs need to be updated, but the idea that the designs you show as examples are more relevant is ridiculous. Little kids don't respond to more "adult" designs or drab urban color ways, the love bright colors and fun recognizable imagery. You have confused a mothers wish for a more mature looking apartment than one that encourages a child to dream and have fun. On top of that some of the items you show are more affordable items that help add to a room. Not everyone (including your readers) can run out to buy "what is hot" only to have to change next year when it is not. Manufacturers (outside of character licenses) rarely influence kids themes, they respond to demand. But is there a difference between good design and bad? That is determined by choice, and in todays market there are tons of choices. I'd rather put that Pirate rug or Dino bed in my kids room than that grey train wreck you chose!

I got the Ride 'em from Olive Kids and it is great! I highly recommend it. Very bright and colorful and soft. My boys fight over it!
