Some User Review From Amazon


My husband and I purchased this crib because we wanted a modern yet affordable option for our baby. We just couldn't stomach the idea of having some hideous, traditional, spindled piece of baby furniture. This crib is great - sturdy, easy to use, nice to look at, and made of all solid wood pieces. As far as converting to a toddler bed, you should always order the conversion pieces at the time you purchase the crib because the item could be discontinued at any time - no matter what crib, maker, or production date. We were advised to do this by the retailer and found it tremendously helpful since, after 18 months, the color of our crib is no longer in circulation. Overall, this crib was worth every penny and will most certainly last through subsequent babies.


Do NOT purchase this crib, it has been nothing but a headache for us since we first received it. The drop side mechanism is made of plastic and broke on us twice. The manufacturer is unapologetic and only refers you back to the retailer for any recourse. We purchased this crib under 2 years ago for our newborn who we now want to transition to a toddler bed. The fact that this crib was advertised as "convertible" and that a toddler guardrail could later be purchased and attached to convert the crib into a toddler bed, was a main selling point for us. Only now, almost 2 years later, did we discover that the crib has been discontinued and they do not manufacture the toddler guardrail anymore. Once again, the manufacturer was unapologetic and offered us no other accommodations. So now we are stuck with a crib whose drop side does not work and can not be converted into a toddler bed. We now have to go out and purchase a separate toddler bed. Needless to say, we will not be purchasing a toddler bed from Babi Italia or LaJobi, its parent company.


the crib came with multiple missing hardware. when i contacted LaJobi as instructed i was told that this model was discontinued, which by the way was not mentioned in the product details before i purchased, and that i would have to PAY additional $45 for a tiny bag of screws and bolts! it's inconvenient enough having to wait on missing parts that should have have been included with my initial purchase, but i am outraged that, Lajobi instead of rectifying their mistake, that they would even have the audacity to charge an outrageous sum for it.

needless to say i'll never purchase another LaJobi product again. it's a shame because the crib itself is actually solidly built especially for the price and i was happy with the Scandi dresser i purchased at the same time. i am also unhappy that i ended up with a convertible crib that won't convert due the fact this line has been discontinued but i'll try my luck at the local hardware store to finish making the crib, rather than dealing with the hassle of returning at this point.
