I bought a crib tent for my 22 mos old son not even two weeks ago and I LOVE IT! He is a very, very active toddler that climbs anything you can think of. The way I looked at it was this: I could either turn his crib into a toddler bed (it's a convertible), pretty much remove all the furniture from his room (he climbs the dresser, seriously), and then put a lock on the door. Or I could put up a crib tent. Basically, I would either turn his room into something like a cage, or his crib into one. The crib is a whole lot easier and probably more peaceful for him. I went through the whole thing with the toddler bed with my daughter when she was the same age and it was a nightmare. I don't think my son minds the crib tent at all, and bedtimes & naptimes are back to the easy routine they were before. With him knowing he can't climb out, he doesn't fight going to sleep like he did once he learned he could get out. I'd recommend a crib tent in a heartbeat. It cost about $75 and has been well worth it.
