We travel a lot and found that this crib is provided in many hotels. It's very convenient for us to use even at home, so we decided not to buy standard crib. Besides, it is made of metal so it has no smell of the wood. The crib we received is of good quality. The only issue we met is that one of the wheels dropped out twice unexpectedly when the baby is moving in the crib. I think it is because the wheels are not fixed on the crib but attached to crib by simply being put into the holes of the crib legs. We would rate it five stars if this problem is solved.
Cribs are very sturdy. We have purchased several for our child care centers. They are easy to assemble if you are handy. The casters are hard to lock and unlock especially on the regular compact cribs but the evacuation crib's casters are very easy to secure and moves effortless.
Some people are wary of portable cribs thinking they are flimsy or less reliable than a standard full size crib; however, this crib is excellent. Foundations manufactures cribs of excellent quality! I use these in my business so they get a lot of use, but they are sturdier and more reliable than most standard cribs. This is great if you don't have a lot of room, or for a grandparents house as it will be usable for years (as long as your child still needs a crib). The only downside is the fact that you have to bend all the way over to pick up or put in your baby, so for a newborn it would be a pain and uncomfortable, but as they get older, this is definitely a great crib to have.
This is a great crib for us, being grandparents we did not want to have a crib up all the time. This was does close up and you can store under the bed or a closet. There are not many parts to put it together, however, it was a little difficult. I originally thought I could do it...No, I had to ask a neighbor for help. Standard sheets do not fit it. I bought the ones called play yard sheets at target and they fit great. Something else to consider because it is smaller than a standard crib, you can't find any bumper pads to fit it. All in all I like it.
