Are Bunk Beds Safe?

Good Questions

Q: We have twins who share a room. I have squeezed two twin beds into the room, but that's all the space will allow. Initially I was turned off by bunk beds - I'd heard how dangerous they are and how many injuries occur in bunk-bed-related mayhem. But it would really save a lot of room in our small space! The girls are three (turning four in January) and are quite well behaved. Are there any really safe versions you could recommend? Do you think the bunk bed scare is just hype? Thanks!
