I really love this crib and I think it is wonderful for the price. I know that the quality of the wood is not 100% but in order to save money I think it is completely worth it to go with a little cheaper quality wood. This product is beautiful and I love the color of the wood. It is also very useful because it converts to a toddler bed and then to a full size bed later on.
It was very easy to put together and the bottom has a storage basket! It is easy to let the front up and down to reach the baby and it has a chew guard. The mattress can also be lifted or lowered depending on how old the baby is.
After a while you can use the crib as a toddler bed with just the front panal off. Once the baby grows out of that, the back and front can be used as a headboard and footboard to a bed. This saves a lot of money later on. In my opinion this crib does not look like it cost less than $200.
The only thing I dislike about the crib is that the bottom basket is not very sturdy so you can only put small, lightweight items. But other than that this is a terrific crib to buy!
