Great piece of furniture, but Beware!
February 9, 2009
Just beware- some important information is not listed with this product, that I learned upon receiving this crib/changer and reading the manual.
First of all, we have this crib as a crib-only, without the changer, which we LOVE. I bought this one in order to have the two match. I thought the Ellis line had just been discontinued, but Simplicity is OUT of BUSINESS. So replacement parts are NOT available (and Albee Baby did NOT respond to my calls about what to do). UPS was hard on the package (like always), and it arrived with a drawer front scratched up(miraculously, not more).
Damage aside, I had assumed/hoped the changer would go on either end of the crib- it does NOT, in only goes on the right.
I also hoped the changer could be disconnected anytime, but it shares a wall with the crib so can only be disconnected once you are using the crib as a full size head/foot board. AND, while they say you can use it as a night stand later, it will still have the rails around the top (a little strange).
It's a great piece of furniture, but just hope it arrives in good shape with all the pieces and don't expect any support if not.
