When Stork Craft designed the Princess 4-in-1 Fixed Side Convertible Crib, they only had one thing in mind – create the most stunning, artistic, and truly lovely piece of baby furniture for little ones.

The Tuscany also meets the strictest standards of the US CPSC and ASTM and comes with full certification from the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association.

Criteria Used for Evaluation

Design

It is within the walls or sides of the crib that infants below 18 months of age feel safe and secure. They know nothing can harm them as long as they are inside their crib. This can aid in the development of a healthier emotional well-being later in life. The different features or attachments to the crib can also help enhance their emotional skills by providing babies something to play with.

Baby cribs are very important pieces of baby furniture. With our list of the 10 best-selling cribs, you can be sure it will be the last piece of baby furniture you will ever buy as many of these are designed and built for your growing kid. Even when they are already grownups, they can still use their precious crib.

Materials

When purchasing a crib and a crib mattress we know it can be overwhelming and very time consuming for parents or expecting parents to be because there are so many that they can choose from. We did the research for you and looked at nothing but the highest rated products in the market of 2019. Our list is nothing but the best of the best and we did our extensive research looking at each manufacturer, customer satisfaction, reviews, and ratings. One important thing to remember is quality. We wanted to make sure that each crib was made of nothing but the highest quality materials in today’s market. We also made sure that the paint that some use is non-toxic so if your teething toddler happens to leave some bite marks on their crib parents won’t have to stress as much.

Safety

We all know that babies are at the most vulnerable stage in their lives. Their physiological integrity is not yet that fully developed. As such, they are more susceptible to a lot of external influences that may undermine their optimum growth and development. And while we all agree that they need developmentally appropriate toys for them to learn and optimize their brain and motor development, it is crucial to provide them with a more secure and safer environment to rest and play.

The baby crib is more than just an oversized bed for babies. For them, it is their home. It serves as their own little world. They feel more secure in it than outside it until such time that they are already able to explore the world outside their crib. For them, the crib is a place where they get warm hugs from their parents and other caregivers. It is the place where they eventually get fed most of the time. It is also the place where they see moving, colorful, and lighted objects. It is in the crib where they had their first encounter of music and sights other than those produced by mom and dad. It is in the crib where they learn to pull themselves up to, first, a sitting position, and then eventually, a standing position by holding onto the rails of the crib. It is in their beautiful crib that they have mastered their gross-motor skills particularly their leg and arm muscles.

Parents, Did You Know?

Many studies show that it’s important for infants to sleep in their own space starting around 4 months. They found that babies tend to sleep for a longer period of time when they sleep in their own room. Often parents worry about the cost of a crib since their infant will only be in one until they’re about the age of two. This is why convertible cribs are always a wonderful investment as they’ll be there whenever you feel your child is old enough for that next step.

Other Factors to Consider

Value

We wanted to make sure that safety was also something we considered when coming up with our top ten list of best cribs in today’s market. We know that having a new edition to your family isn’t always easy and the last thing we wanted was another thing for a new parent to be stressed about. We did the research for you and made sure that you were getting safe, nontoxic, quality made products that you’d be able to get for long time use. All of the cribs on our list convert and have the highest number of reviews from customers. We also looked at every positive and negative reviews regarding each product on our list and therefore we were able to create the best cribs of 2019.

Frequently Asked Questions

q: Do the cribs come with the extension kits?
a:

No, but you can order them online through the manufacturer or other websites.

q: Are all the cribs listed GREENGUARD Gold certified?
a:

No but all of the cribs are nontoxic and have been safety-certified.

q: What material are most cribs made from?
a:

Most cribs are made from pinewood, cherrywood, and wood composites.

q: Do any of the cribs come with a mattress?
a:

Very few cribs come with the mattress, and if they do, it is generally thin in nature.

q: Is it important to check dimensions when purchasing a mattress for my crib?
a:

Yes. While most cribs will fit standard-size crib mattresses, not all will be the same dimension. Check and make sure your dimensions of the crib and mattress are the same before you make a final purchase.

q: How long does it take to assemble most cribs?
a:

It takes anywhere from 20 to 60 minutes to assemble most cribs.

q: How long before my baby outgrows their crib?
a:

Great question! It seems a little silly to make big investments in items you can’t use for very long, doesn’t it? The good news is that there really is no mandated time at which you must move your child from a crib to a toddler bed, but the median age is somewhere between 18 months and 3 years. You’ll start to notice when your child is big and agile enough to climb the railing (some cribs pinpoint this stage at happening when a child reaches about 35 inches tall). At this time, it’s best to move your precious little one to a toddler bed to avoid any accidents. The even better news is that many cribs on the market have already cornered and solved this problem for you by constructing convertible cribs that can be changed into toddler beds, and sometimes even daybeds, so you aren’t buying a piece of furniture you’ll have to replace within two years.
