I knew I wanted a Jenny Lind crib for our baby girl from about the moment we knew we were expecting. I initially purchased one made by another company, Angeline, sold by another online retailer. Long story short, upon arrival, the paint finish was bubbled in several areas and the Styrofoam packaging was even stuck to the crib in several places. I got my money back and ordered the DaVinci Jenny Lind crib from Overstock. Not only is the finish free of bubbling or other sorts of imperfections, the paint job looks much more professional. The finish on the Angeline crib was very glossy in a cheap sort of way, However, the finish on the DaVinci crib is a buttery smooth, satin finish. It's beautiful. I like the fact that the front panel of the crib can be removed so it can become a day bed. When the mattress is in the lowest position, I think this will make a fine toddler bed.
The crib is lightweight enough that I carried some of the pieces up the stairs myself, and it was easy for my husband and I to assemble. My only complaint is that the giant warning stickers that are affixed to each end piece of the crib, on both sides, are difficult to remove. With some patience and some goo gone, I removed all traces of them from the exterior sides (the interior sides are not visible once assembled).
I did not attach the cheap gold casters - there is really no need as the crib is light enough to move around. I also spray painted to tops of the included screws and washers (white) prior to assembly so that they did not stick out like sore thumbs - looks much better!

I bought this crib for our second baby (have one that's two, and one eight months). It was super easy to put together--did it in twenty minutes with my mom. It's really cute and so far has withstood some serious jumping on/and about by my two year old. I love the vintage feel and the super low price.

I am a 40+ year old mom with a husband who could assemble this, but it took me less than an hour to do myself. I am pleased with the structure and appearance. The only complaint I can think of is that the castors are a gold, coated metal looking plastic - which does not look high quality, but this does not affect the crib performance, and on carpeting you probably don't need them.

From other website, I read this model is one of the non-toxic cribs among the market. That's why I decided to buy it. Hope it's true. The product itself is easy to install and has good look. Only that I hope the wheels have lock system on them.
I bought this crib specifically because of its vintage style. I was happy to find it was also solidly constructed, easy to put together and easy to change the height on. We've used it daily for over a year without issue. Would definitely buy again if I were in need of another crib!
Item arrived with a dent in it (I didn't unpack it until the baby's room was ready and now it is too late to return it with a newborn coming). The screws on the sides are visible - a plastic cap to cover that would go a long way. Also, the casters are not metal - they are all plastic spray painted a garish shade of gold.
I got this on sale, and for the price I like it. Just keep your expectations reasonable.
Light and sturdy crib!! The wheels are very convenient (although the gold color is not the nicest one...). Very good price for the high quality. Very easy to assemble it. In general, after looking for the best crib for my baby, I am very happy with my choosing.
What are the exact dimensions for the crib mattress? Looking into buying one that is 27.75 x 52 x 6. I would like to know if there is going to gaps or if it will fit snug.ruthie74 on May 4, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
