The DaVinci Parker crib has lived up to expectations, and so far, Baby doesn't seem to mind it, either.

I think this will be an excellent bed and should last us until the teenage years, I'm hoping anyway! It's solid wood, the slats are rather thin and may break with any mild roughhousing as the child ages. But for a crib, it's pretty solid, not very heavy though, any attractive. The assembly instructions weren't great either, you really have to pay attention to which way you're putting the sides together to make sure you have the right holes facing in/out, but it's a simple deal, about 1.5 hours total. Oh and the trundle, we'll see if that lasts a years, it's fiberboard and paper...

I had ordered another crib previously and it was super-heavy, required two people and more than 2 hrs to assemble. This crib was easier to put together, although instructions could use a bit more detailed pictures. My hubby put it together with minimal help from me an in about an hour using an electric screw driver attachment instead of the Allen wrench the kit came with. The crib is beautiful, seems sturdy and the wood is very nice but doesn't weigh a ton. There was one small ding in the wood from shipping, but because it's on the wall facing side of the headboard we decided not to bother returning it. We also set it up as a toddler bed for a guest to use and it was relatively easy to convert to/from crib to toddler bed.

This crib is very cute and was easy to put together. We had some concerns about the way the brackets fit into the frame that the mattress rests on. We would not have purchased if we had seen this before. I don't think we will be using this much past one year.
My husband and I highly recommend this crib. The selling points for us were that it was made of real wood, that we could assemble it easily in the privacy of our own home, the conversion aspect of it, the price, and the aesthetic appeal. We were pleasantly surprised to see that the side rail is curved in such a manner that it makes it easy for me to reach for the baby (I'm 5'1''.) The box arrived undamaged, and assembly took less than two hours. The only hitch during assembly was a bit of a mix up regarding which way the legs should be facing, but it was easily straightened out. The wood is a bit soft and does mark easily, but as long as you are gentle it shouldn't be a problem. The screw holes are not noticeable at all, in our opinion. Overall, this was an amazing value for the price and we are so glad that we got it!
I ordered this crib on Sunday and my son is sleeping peacefully in it only 4 short days later! I put it together myself in a couple of hours since my husband was out of town. I am completely pleased with it. It looks as nice as cribs at twice the price and it's easy to get him in and out of the crib even without any type of drop side. It's quite sturdy and I'm confident we will get years of use out of it.
I purchased this crib for my baby due in 5 weeks. We received it in less than 5 days. My husband put it together in just under 3 hours (includes breaks and lots of interruptions from me) and it is beautiful! It matches my furniture store bought armoire that I already had and the craftmanship is actually sturdier than the armoire! The instructions were very easy to follow, it comes with the conversion kit, and once put together, it is a perfect fit for the space I set-aside for it. The lower lip is also perfect height for this 5'2 mother to reach over and pick up my soon to be newborn (this was a big concern for me).
I was amazed at the quality of the bed. The bed arrived quickly, in great shape, and was relatively easy to assemble. I had a hand drill with attachments and a set of screwdrivers and pliers and was able to put it together by myself with my granddaughter's help ... she's three and was able to empty the tool box in the time it too me to get one side put together. Seriously, the bed looks great, is sturdy, and for the price and the great shipping price, we couldn't have beat it. I was surprised that the side doesn't lower, but I think that will be fine.
