I have never written a product review before, but this was terrible enough that I felt I needed to let potential buyers know about this product. The wire grid that holds up the mattress is hung by metal bars that come out at an angle from the wood- making the perfect spot to pinch little fingers. What’s worse is that these bars aren’t fixed, but they rotate, making them even more dangerous. Even with a properly sized mattress, these bars are easily reachable by curious hands. Also, the gap between the crib sides and the mattress is large enough that I and my husband (large adults!) can reach an arm down by the side of the mattress and reach the wire grid, which has sharp hooks (we cut ourselves on it assembling the crib). In short, this crib is dangerously constructed! To make it even worse, the finish on the wood didn’t match and just appeared cheaply made. Check it out!
The Gelato Crib brings playful practicality to your nursery. Rounded spindles make this crib simple yet a total statement piece while rounded posts ensure safety for wobbly toddlers. To add personality, the feet are easily removable and can be replaced with either spring yellow or cool mint options (sold separately).
Babyletto Gelato 4-in-1 Convertible Crib, Washed Natural Feet with Toddler Bed Conversion Kit, White Review
I think all of the negative reviews (minus an occasional quality issue), must be from first time parents, or complainers. The design is pretty much identical to a different Da Vinci brand crib we have as well. This one though has much nicer looking wood and feels sturdier too. I have no safety concerns whatsoever. I love that it came with the toddler rail. (The one for our Da Vinci crib was an extra $80 on top of the crib price)A crib skirt will work just fine, providing it has a slit in each corner. Ours were from pottery barn kids and worked. Jusr be aware it will work best when the mattress is at it’s highest (for a newborn) and there is the most room for a crib skirt to hang below it. Once you start lowering the mattress it won’t look very good because you will only have a couple of inches for it to hang before it just lays on the floor. Delivery and packaging were fine too. Set up was ok, not super fast, but it all went together properly. Overall I would recommend this crib. -Read Reviews-
Hard to assemble. Instructions not clear on screwing in the mattress support. I contacted customer service and there was no apology for the inconvenience. I would equate the quality of this crib to Ikea furniture.
