My Delta Venetian Crib Review
I’ve been searching for a new crib, and I kept running across the Delta Venetian Crib in my travels online. This is a great crib because it meets a need that all new parents face-babies grow. That’s the beautiful thing about this crib style, it’s a 4-in-1 design that will grow and meet the needs of your little one.
This is a solidly built crib that will be a haven for your baby to snooze in from newborn to teen. That means this bed goes from a crib, toddler bed, daybed, and finally a full sized bed. That’s how solid this design is.
I fell in love with this particular crib design. I learned a hard lesson after my first baby, and I bought what I thought I “needed.” Turns out, convertible items are much more economical. With my first baby, I hate to admit how gullible I was, but I actually bought a separate bassinette, crib, portable crib and later a toddler bed. I did have other children after my first so I could reuse those items. But I still don’t feel as though I got my money’s worth. By the time my last child joined the family, I had repurposed the other items and had acquired a crib like this Delta Venetian Crib. I will tell you that is one of the best buys I ever made for my kids as the bed has been so useful since we could “make it new” by adding a larger mattress as necessary through the years, and changing out the bedding to reflect the tastes of an older child.
Pros of the Delta Venetian Crib
I was pleased to see the average rating of this crib style on Amazon was 4.8 out of 5 stars. I review a good number of baby products when I’m looking for gifts or things for my kiddos, and I don’t see many happy ratings across the board for a product too often. Besides the awesome conversion design of this crib, there is also an easy mattress height adjustment. The crib takes any standard size crib mattress, so nothing special is needed to fit. The finish has been tested for lead and toxins and meets or exceeds both government, JPMA, and ATSM standards for safety.
Cons of the Delta Venetian Crib
I like to be as balanced in my reviews as possible, but this one was tough. I couldn’t find anything amiss in this design that buyers were unhappy with. When I looked over this crib, I didn’t find anything lacking either. I could only find two complaints. One regarding how the crib was packed for shipping and the box arrived damaged; however the crib inside was unharmed. The other complaint was due to the buyer not feeling that the company was clear that the toddler rails for the conversion to a toddler bed were sold separately.
The Delta Venetian Crib is easily a 5 star crib, and I don’t give very many of those. So much thought went into this design. I really like the option to convert to a daybed, that’s a conversion in a crib design I had not previously run across. It was a good way to continue using a piece of furniture you made an investment in. If your child winds up getting an entirely new bed, using the day bed is a great way to utilize this crib. Another thing your older child will like is once converted to a toddler or youth bed, this no longer looks like a crib, it really does grow as your child does.
