We just got this crib after a previous purchase turned out to be horrible quality (different brand and store). We are so pleased with this crib. It was very easy to put together, although the directions for Step 1 were a bit confusing and the legs ended up being on backwards. At 27 weeks pregnant I was able to partially assemble it myself and an additional 15-20 with my husband completed it. It looks great and the quality is so much better than the first crib we bought. The shipping through Overstock was very quick. It arrived from California to West Virginia just 5 days after we ordered it. I will agree with one of the other reviews that the wood is soft, but to me that is just part of getting real solid wood instead of the pressed boards so many other cribs are made from. The other crib splintered in 2 places when I pushed a dowel rod into place, so I would rather have real wood that is a little soft than the cheap stuff that splinters so easily. Possibly a teething guard will be needed.
For the price of this crib I'd say it's an excellent buy. Although, the picture made it look lighter than it really is-the "natural" finish has more of a honey tint to it. It's very sturdy and easy to put together-7 month pregnant lady did it within 2 hours-instructional diagram a tad confussing but you can eventually figure it out. It does scratch but I've read that a lot of cribs do. I'm extremely happy with this purchase minus the disappointment in the color variation, but oh well. Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to buy a good crib at a great low price. The shipping was fast too, I think we had it within a week.
We bought this crib for my now 18-month old, and are buying an identical one for baby #2. Overall, I have loved it. It is a very pretty crib, but not too pretty for a boy in my opinion (I have 2 girls). It is lower down than other cribs I have seen, but that is not a problem for us - my husband and I are both pretty short. The height from the inside is appropriate for a baby (at 18 months, my daughter is still not close to being able to climb out) but the legs on it are short and the top rail is at belly-button height for me. The wood is soft, as I said above, and scratches pretty easily, but with the natural finish, there's not much difference in the color of the scratches. That might be a bigger problem with a darker stain, possibly. For the price, I don't think you can beat it. If you can live with the low height and scratchability, I would go for it!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? very close
Please tell us about the quality of the product. the wood is soft. We've been using it 18 mo and there are teeth marks that are quite visible on the sides. I have never actually observed my daughter chewing on it .
How accurate was the on site description of the product? good
The product came on time and was easy to put together said my husband. The only thing i didn't realize was how low it was and that the ooutside railing didn't move, not big deal, but just needed more information.
Very good crib for the price. Wood is very soft, so expect a lot of dings and marks. In the natural color they dont really show up, so its not the end of the world. Some of the hardware was "difficult" to get to work, but managed to eventually get the crib built. Wood is pretty bulky and after putting it all together has a solid feel. We have a ikea crib for our first child, and this one is definitely much more solid. Would recommend
We recieved the package on the day they said we would. I am 5 months pregnant and my daughters and i put this together in a little over an hour. The instructions were very easy to follow and all the parts were present:) we are very happy with the end result. Its a beautiful and sturdy crib that i wish i would have had when my girls were babies!

The crib turned out to be a bit bigger than expected. But was very pleased with the steadiness and quality and finish of the wood. Some of the parts had a slightly different shade but when put all together, it looks great. The instructions for putting it together were pretty clear.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very pleased with the quality and steadiness of the crib once it is put together
My son is five months old, and sleeps in this regularly now. It is very sturdy and well crafted. The wood is beautiful! It is on the bigger side, but that allows for him to use it as a toddler bed and a regular bed as he gets older. We have been very happy with the purchase!

My sister used this crib with her two boys so I knew already how much she liked it and planned on getting the same crib. when I checked consumer reports, it was the highest rated crib, so that made me feel even better. we set it up and it feels good and sturdy. I'm expecting to be really happy with this crib once baby arrives.

Can you please share specifically how you define "non-toxic" finish? Is it actually no-VOC and completely heavy metal free? Can the manufacturer provide testing data to support the claim "non-toxic"?

Please advise if this crib has drop down side as we want to avoid that in the crib we purchase due to the safety hazard.cheesepatoot on Jul 19, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
