Described as "the most classic design in the history of baby cribs," the DaVinci Jenny Lind 3-in-1 Convertible Crib meets stringent federal safety regulations. It's easy to assemble and converts to a toddler bed with a conversion kit (*Est. $60) or daybed. A few owners wish the wheels would lock, however, and the warning stickers may take some elbow grease to remove.
Sturdy and safe. The Jenny Lind 3-in-1 goes a step above meeting tough federal regulations for cribs and is certified by the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association. Reviewers call it sturdy and stable, and there are no complaints of safety issues from consumers.
Simple to assemble. This DaVinci convertible crib is so easy to put together, owners say they can do it in 30 minutes or less. No owners report having trouble moving the mattress to its four height positions, but a few say warning stickers on the crib are difficult to remove. Parents who use wheels on the crib say it's easy to maneuver because of its light weight of about 45 pounds, although some wish the wheels would lock in place.
Classic, attractive styling. Pictures don't do justice to the classic good looks of the DaVinci Jenny Lind 3-in-1 Convertible Crib, experts say, and some add that the crib looks better than its price tag. The Jenny Lind converts to a toddler bed with a conversion rail kit that's sold separately (*Est. $60), and also converts to a daybed. It's made of sustainable New Zealand pine and has a nontoxic finish, but there is no extra storage. It comes with a one-year warranty.
