Moving daughter onto a toddler bed?

ok our doctor suggested that we move our 15 month old daughter to a toddler bed instead of the crib. so this week end we are getting one. so my question is how do we move her from the crib to the bed? do we use blankets? first time with all this any help would be appreated thanks
Update: because she is tring to climb out of her crib. would rather have a small fall rather than a fall from 4 foot up. and i agree
