We love a challenge, so when one of our readers asked us what we thought was the best convertible crib on the market today; we made it our goal to find out. There are certainly plenty to choose from but one crib that kept coming up over and over again during our research was the Da Vinci Emily Convertible Crib. This crib is consistently rated 5 stars by consumers and for good reason. Read on to see why…

What’s in the Box

The Da Vinci Emily Convertible Crib is a convertible system that grows with your child, and comes with all the components required to transform the crib into a day bed and toddler bed. You get the following:

  • Crib with 4 level mattress support
  • Day bed conversion guard rail
  • Full size headboard and footboard

The beauty of the  Da Vinci convertible system is not only that you can turn it easily into a toddler bed but as your child grows the Emily convertible crib can be transformed into a full sized bed with the addition of the DaVinci Full/Twin Size Conversion Rail Kit, which is sold separately.

So essentially you have a crib that can be converted into a:

  • daybed
  • toddler bed
  • full size bed – you will need to buy the conversion rails separately for this one.

What is it Made Of?

The Da Vinci Emily Convertible Crib is made of all natural New Zealand pine wood taken from sustainable forests. And for the safety of your baby this crib is free from lead, formaldehyde, phthalate and it has a non-toxic finish.

Four Level Mattress Support

This is one of the best features of the Da Vinci Emily Crib. What this means is that as your child grows you can lower the mattress. This ensures that it becomes more difficult for them to climb out of the crib as they get older.

Safety First

Foremost in most parents mind when they are looking to purchase a crib or toddler bed for their precious bundle of joy are the safety aspects. Da Vinci are fully aware of this aspect so they make sure that their cribs meet or exceed all U.S safety standards, giving you peace of mind in knowing that your little one will be safe.

We’ve already mentioned the toxic free finish on this crib but Da Vinci have also ensured that the crib is constructed in a way to ensure the best safety features possible. There are no movable parts on this crib so you don’t need to worry about the possibility of the side rails coming down accidentally and squashing little fingers.

It can be a scary time for a toddler moving from a crib into their first toddler bed. DaVinci is well aware of this and that is why they have taken this into consideration and designed the toddler bed with this in mind.

The safety rail gives your toddler the assurance that they are still safe and snug in bed while building their confidence as they move to towards becoming a big kid.

So you will be pleased to know that the safety aspect of this full sized crib is certified by the Juvenile Products Manufacturer’s Association (JPMA). And because the Emily convertible crib does not include moving parts, it definitely meets or exceeds all U.S. safety standards.

Great Value for Money

This crib is such a cost saving benefit for your family, after all babies grow so quickly and it’s not long before they move from the crib to a toddler bed and then onto a full size bed. With the Emily 4 in 1 convertible crib system the only thing you need to purchase for the conversion, is the rail kit and that’s only if you ever want to convert this crib into a full size bed.

What Colors Does it Come in?

The crib bed that is featured above is in the cherry color but the Emily crib is also available in the following fabulous color choices:

What You Need to Know

The stylishly elegant Emily convertible baby crib is sturdy and although it is relatively simple to put together, it sometimes needs two people to line up some of the holes and insert the screws. However, this does seem to depend on the individual product as the majority of reviewers seem to have no problems with putting the Emily convertible crib together. Just make sure that you carefully follow the instructions that are included.

It is best to lay the pieces out on carpet or on a covered surface so that the wood does not get scratched while you are putting it together. And don’t over tighten the screws or you may some difficulty removing them when you come to turn the crib into a bed.
