Don’t Buy a Storkcraft Aspen Crib Until You Read This
I feel as though I have purchased my fair share of cribs over the years. Not only for myself but also for expecting friends. I have learned one thing, be careful about the cribs you buy. I was looking online for some ideas for a crib for a mommy-to-be, and I ran across something disturbing about the Storkcraft Aspen Crib that I will cover in my review below.
This is a crib that will give parents a lot of use. When the baby grows out of the crib, this model is a convertible crib that will go from infant crib to a toddler bed with ease. When your toddler needs a larger bed, you can convert his bed to a twin bed with ease. In between, if you have moved on completely from this style for your child to use as a bed, you can utilize this crib as a really nice day bed.
It’s no big secret that I love convertible cribs. It was a hard lesson to realize that I spent a lot of money I didn’t have to with my first child on so many different items for my baby to sleep in. A bassinet, crib, mini crib, and toddler bed were all expenses I didn’t have to have if I would have done my homework and gotten wise to convertible cribs. The best thing about convertible cribs is that it’s like getting a brand new bed with every change you make. When your toddler is ready for their own bed, they will get just as excited when you change it from a crib and add the rails to make it their own big kid bed.
Pros of the Storkcraft Aspen Crib
This Storkcraft crib came highly rated. I will get to my warning about this crib in the “cons” section below this. This crib has a lot of create features, beside the convenience of a convertible crib. It also comes in a large array of wood colors that you normally don’t get in a lot of cribs, such as a crisp white, dark cherry, deep espresso, flat black, warm cognac, and a classic oak. There are three mattress support positions so you can adjust the mattress to the size and weight of your child as they grow.
Cons of the Storkcraft Aspen Crib
When I was reading reviews on this crib, I ran across hundreds of happy people. The cribs were sturdy and comfortable for their babies. However, I found another group of people that had no issues with the crib design. They were very unhappy with the delivery of their item. In each case, the crib was broken in transit to the home. The best way to get around this is to buy directly in a store or opt for the ship to store option. I would probably peek inside the box at the store to make sure the side rails weren’t damaged; that is the piece of wood that was damaged for every negative review filed. Then, if you need to make a switch at the store, you can do it right then and there.
The Storkcraft Aspen Crib is a great crib. It’s repeated over and over by happy customers in the reviews I found how durable this crib is. It also converts to all its different forms very well and becomes a sturdy bed or day bed. If you buy this online, just get the best shipping option you can or have it delivered to the store, and you’ll have a great crib to pass down through your family.
