I just put this together the other day (8 months pregnant). My 7 year old daughter helped me and we had no problems. I haven't used it yet since the baby isn't here, but it seems sturdy and should work fine. The mini style takes up much less room than a traditional crib. I definitely recommend buying the thicker mini crib mattress separately. I can' t imagine using the thin pad that the crib comes with. The Koala brand portable crib sheets sold at babies r us do fit the thicker mattress too.
We have 10 more weeks before this little girl gets to try it out. I was so excited for it to come in the mail, and I love how it can go anywhere in the room. Unlike a sleigh bed it fits with the short side on the wall (like a traditional grown up bed), the long side like many cribs are positioned, or even in the middle of the room because it is so symmetrical. The color is nice and has enough variation to the grain that it blends with other pieces that are not exactly the same finish. The modern style is simple and clean and it went together very easy. My only complaint is that where the sides meet at the corners they are off by about 1/8". It looks like the long side rails are being squeezed in from the short side rails- puzzled how to fix that. Excellent for the price!
I bought this for my daughter who is due in a month. This is a great modern style crib for a fraction of the price of some other modern baby furniture. If you are not into those sweetzty traditional baby furniture and want somethinguch mor cool and fun then this is for you!
