I am very happy with this port-a-crib. It came very quickly in excellent condition and was easy to put together. Best of all, it looks great! And most important - after all the research I did on port-a-cribs, I know it is one of the best out there with no recalls or negative reviews. I'll be using this crib for years to come in my child care.
We purchased this crib for our vacation home. The crib arrived quickly to our home and is very easy to set up. It also folds easily for storage when not in use. The only downside is that this is a smaller size portable crib versus a standard size crib. We have a large 6 month-old child (23 lbs.) and he was getting his legs stuck through the crib bars a few times. So if you have a smaller size baby, then this crib is fine. In the future, we will need to rent a full size crib however.
This is a beautiful and sturdy portable crib, however, it is a few inches shorter than other portable cribs. It folds up nicely and is lightweight. It's almost already too small for my grandson however, those few inches make a difference at a certain age. It's perfect for a baby or child under the age of 2 or who is short. Just note the length, its just a few inches shorter than other portable cribs I found online.
We wanted a crib in our new house for our two year old grandson to have sleep overs. He does love his new crib! Our biggest concern is that the sides are lower than we expected and the child stands at waist high, so falling out head first can be dangerous. (And our 2 year old is rather short!) For most two year olds that like to jump on their mattress, this could be reason enough not to buy this crib for older toddlers. It did not come with a mattress so we bought a nice one for the crib, which may be taller than a thinner portable crib mattress, adding an inch or two to the child's stand. We didn't want a crib you had to put together. Though this was very hard to snap off the plastic ties holding it together for mailing, you only needed to put on the wheels, if you want to use them. (We put them on and it rolls very easy on carpet, but also can lock in place.) We wanted a crib that folds up, when he gets too old for it, and we can use it for company staying. This crib folds very easily, once you take out the mattress. We solved the problem with our Jack falling out by purchasing from Australia a "tent" for "$XXX" that is wonderful and makes the crib usable now. We really love the crib but didn't want him landing on his head. The "tent" is strong netting that pops up like a tent and the mattress goes in it (so the tent is under and high over the crib, held up by extension support .) Jack can stand in the crib and not hit his head on the top. The whole thing is strong netting, with an outside thick zipper, but air can circulate from a fan and you can still see the child through a monitor camera. He absolutely loves his "tent" to sleep in (took 6 days to mail to us ) and we absolutely love knowing he can't fall out and we know where he is when we are sleeping..in his zipped up tent! Now we can use the crib with peaceful minds.
