Although the crib folds up nicely, it is not designed for traveling! For those purposes, it’s better to use travel cribs, as they are lighter and folds up even smaller.

  2. how fast can you collapse and set it up again
  3. how much space does the folded crib occupy

  3. does the crib meet all the required safety standards

What parents say about this crib

 

It was very easy to assemble and is a good looking crib. I love it because it can be folded and moved to different locations throughout the house if needed. I was worried that it wouldn’t be sturdy enough but was pleasantly surprised to see that it is very sturdy.

Donna

 

Overall, it looks great but it is too high for 5’2″ person trying to reach for their baby when the mattress is in the lowest position. I had to buy a stool to stand on, to be able to properly lift my child.

Penny

 

I love the crib. It is sturdier than our last “regular” crib.

Heather

 

Easy to assemble! Great for a Grandma and Grandpa’s house. Will fold and store if you do not want to keep it up all the time. Full size but not a huge piece of furniture.
