overall good crib- recommended
October 15, 2007
Baby isn't here yet, but to me and my husband the crib seems to be sturdy, well-made, and of good quality.Two minor exceptions... the drawer is of fair to poor quality (the screws aren't holding it together and I'll have to drill in some new ones in to keep the drawer together). Also, the crib arrived with a some scratches on the bottom of one of the legs. I agree with the reviewer below to watch out for the following: 1. It is easy to put the sliding rail on facing the wrong way. I actually did install it the wrong way at first (so you had to pull out to drop the side instead of pushing in), but it was easy to take off and put on the correct way.2. The wheels are very hard to take out, so make sure you've got them where you want them before you pop them in.We got the colgate classica mattress as well and it does fit nicely, and is very light and easy to lift up and move. Also, I would recommend a crib skirt with a drop of 14"-16" to hide the metal bar that supports the mattress and to keep dust out of the drawer.The crib and mattress shipped very quickly... they were here within a week of my order. Overall I would recommend this crib.
