Delta Children Emery 4-in-1 convertible crib Review
With Emery, Delta Children made a beautiful crib, where classic elegance meets modern comfort. It is a convertible crib, so it has a multifunctional design. Everything on the crib is adjustable, from mattress support to the transitions into bigger beds. We were investigating how well is Emery made, tested its convertibility and precisely reviewed what can this convertible crib offers to you and your family.
Before we even start reviewing its features, we checked up the Emery safety. That is our regular procedure for every review, and Delta Children Emery is not an exception. If the crib doesn’t meet all the required safety standards, we do not even bother to evaluate other features, as the crib immediately get zero points.

Description and specifications of the crib
We love Emery’s sleek style with quality construction and airy open design. The back of the crib is higher from the front and closed from the top rail to the top of the arch.
Delta Children did not close the entire backside of the crib but placed slats there too. That is the right decision because it provides better airflow through the crib.
Emery is available in a natural colored palette of non-toxic finishes. It is great that they use only non-toxic finishes, but in our opinion, they could offer a wider selection.
You can get Emery in three colors: dark chocolate, gray, and white. These are classic colors that match to the majority of nursery’s furniture, but still, add some colors, please.
- Manufacturer: Delta Children
- Model: Emery
- Type: 4-in-1 convertible crib
- Style: classic elegance
- Material: natural New Zealand pine wood
- Color: gray, white, and dark chocolate
If you have already checked the cribs dimensions, you might think that with 43,75″ Emery is a very high crib. That is the height of the highest point on the backside. The height of the front rail, where you will place the child in the crib is 34″.
We do not understand why manufacturers state only the highest points of arch designed cribs. It is important to know such information, especially for petite moms who have problems with reaching over the rail while placing the sleeping baby in the crib.
We have a great article with the best cribs for short moms, and with such front height, Emery can be placed among them too.
- Assembled dimensions: 55,75″L x 23,25″D x 43.75″H (34″)
- Assembled weight: 63,8 lbs
Emery is a convertible crib
Emery grows with your child and can be even a lifetime bed for him. It converts from a crib to a toddler bed, daybed and finally into a full-size bed with a headboard.
While daybed rail is included in the price, the toddler safety guardrail and full-size metal bed frame are sold separately. As that is common for convertible cribs, and because the overall price is still not too high, we didn’t rate it lower for that.
Another great thing, which we found very useful is the ability to install a toddler safety guardrail on both sides. That adds even higher versatility to the crib!
Some parents wonder if they can use Emery as a co-sleeper. As the crib is convertible, in theory, you could detach the front side, set the mattress to the height of your bed, and place the crib beside it.
We do not recommend this, as the crib is not designed as a co-sleeper and safety might be jeopardized!
- Convertible: yes
- Number of conversions: 4
- Conversion types: crib, toddler bed, daybed, and full-size bed
- Weight Capacity: toddler/daybed = 50lb

1. How long can my baby use the Emery as a crib?
Stop using Emery as a crib when your child is able to climb out or reaches the height of 35″, whichever occurs first.
2. Is the crib portable?
No, it isn’t.

3. What about under-crib storage?
The height of the legs is 4,5″, which in principle could make it possible for storing small boxes under the crib. But on the legs below the lower rail is attached decorative batten, which improves the crib’s design, and prevents to store things under the crib at the same time.
4. Crib’s assembling and conversions
We didn’t notice any problems with assembling the crib or with the conversions into bigger beds.
Any standard size crib mattress fits into Delta Children Emery 4-in-1 convertible crib.
We recommend using a Delta Children Twinkle stars crib mattress, which has a fiber core. The mattress is natural, waterproof, lightweight, GREENGUARD Gold certified, and without any toxic materials.
The crib has metal mattress support, which you can adjust to three different heights. Because of that, you can easily accommodate the mattress’ height to your child’s growth. Start with the highest position for a newborn and gradually lower it down with the baby’s growth.
- Compatible Mattress Size: standard
- Mattress Included: no
- Recommended mattress: Delta Children Twinkle stars crib mattress
- Adjustable Mattress Height: yes, 3 positions
Emery is a safe crib, which meets and even exceed all required safety standards set by CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) and ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials).
The crib is also JMPA (Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association) certified, which mean it doesn’t contain lead and other toxic elements. It is phthalate safe, with non-toxic finishes.
The wood construction is strong and sturdy, without dropping sides. Although drop sides were handy, they were not safe, and are banned since 2011. Do not use dropping side cribs!
