Ha ha, my in-laws bought my boys the same car set! It took my husband more than an hour to set up (no instructions included, so that rules me out from ever being able to assemble it!), was so loud that we had to move it outside where it took up our entire outdoor table. After about 6 weeks I got totally sick of it and used the fact that I needed the table for guests as an excuse to pack it away into the spare cupboard. Where it has remained for the past year...
Toy Buying Mistakes and
Tips to Avoid Them

Well, I must disagree completely! My almost-four and five-and-a-half year olds both have trundle beds in their own rooms. I wanted them to have the freedom to sleep over with each other, or have their own space. I think it's ideal for what you want. My boys sleep over every night and it's no hassle at all to simply roll the bed back under in the morning (how lazy are you guys, anyway?) To make things easier though, you need to make sure the space next to the bed is clear of furniture (so you don't have to be shifting things to make way for it) and that you have a tidy little area to pop the extra bedding in after use. The trundle will only fit underneath with the base sheet, so we have extra blankets popped into one of the baskets in a nearby Ikea Expedit bookcase. Simple! Good luck. :-)
