I really like this product. At first I thought my baby didn't like it but he just likes to be swaddled when he sleeps. The only problem is that it is a little big but if you have a lot of space it is great. You might have problems finding sheets but it really is a great buy.
I read through a got part of the reviews on here and saw that it scratched easily but also saw some really good ones. So I took my chances. Not only did the crib come with scratches, we scratched it even more while assembling (which took 3 hours because twice we realized we didn't put the holes on the right side and had to take apart the whole thing), and a piece off the leg completely chipped off. The crib itself is sturdy, so we decided to keep it but return the conversion kit because it seemed clear that we'd be lucky to make it past toddler years with this crib. For a crib\/toddler bed it seems work the $199 especially since mine came with the free mattress. My suggestion, if you're short on cash, get it! If you can dish out a bit more and still stay in budget, then get a better crib.\n\nAlso, the top crossbar doesn't come down all the way to the crib, so there's a nice gap there that I felt wasn't safe...
After searching high and low for a changing table that wouldn't break the bank I finally gave this one a go based on its solid reviews. The color is exactly as it looks in the photo, a little lighter than most of the espresso furniture we have. (This was fine for us considering we wanted something that would hold up for a while).\n\nWe ultimately chose this one because we are two tall people and didn't want to have to strain our backs to change our little guy. This one is perfect for us as we're both around 6' tall. We also liked that we can use it as a regular dresser when he gets a little older.\n\nI've purchased a lot of 'assembly required' furniture over the years, and this one seems to be of higher quality than most. The only 'lightweight' pieces are the drawer bottoms, but when secured properly they feel sturdy enough to withstand the weight of baby items easily. If you've had practice with assembling furniture this shouldn't be too rough. I did however miss the step where you attach the back piece since the diagram for that step emphasizes inserting the changing table surface. I had to undo a few steps to get it in, but again, no big deal.\n\nOverall, I highly recommend this. Go slowly and pay close attention to the graphics\/directions and you'll be fine.

this review is only about packaging...
The crib may be top-notch, but I have no basis of comparison since this is the first I have purchased.\n\nSo this review only discusses packaging. This is the worst packaging design I have ever seen. When all parts were removed from the box, I was amazed that the amount of styrofoam they included even fit in the box! The styrofoam was low-quality and fell apart easily creating huge mess and causing a health-hazard for the baby and our pets.\n\nIn addition to styrofoam, the amount of additional cardboard and paper was unnessary, disturbing, and ultimately upsetting. If everything had not been out of the box and too difficult to return, this definitely would have made its way back to the store.\n\nI do not like to support a company as reckless, rude, and ignorant as this manufacturer. Pay attention to what you buy and please consider the planet for the kid you are buying this for.\n\nVery disappointing!
This product is very functional- I love that it is a changing table and dresser in one piece. We have a tiny nursery and could not fit a changing table plus a dresser or chest in the room. We got the Ebony (black) finish and it is beautiful. It was a little more \"involved\" to assemble than the matching Cadence crib was, but still very simple nontheless. It only took my husband about 45 min to get it together. Like the crib, it is lightweight yet super sturdy. The drawers glide in and out very easily. I didn't know that it came with a flat foam pad for the top of the table, but it does- however it is very chinsey and was ripping at the seams after being unwrapped for only 10 minutes. That didn't bother us though since we were not planning on using the included foam pad anyways- we will be getting a much nicer concave changing pad to replac e it. The size of the top of the table is standard so that most other changing pads will fit perfectly.

Crib seems great, but arrived damage
I wrote one bad review about my experience with this product and it was erased. Selective reviews are getting posted? Not sure if this one will make it.\n\nThe crib seems great-beautiful colors, not too hard to assemble. However, back panel arrived torn. This relates to the product, so don't erase the review. After five emails and two phone calls, Walmart assurred me they had contacted the manufacture to send a replacement piece but could not confirm that. I guess its hard to pick up the phone and get a confirmation? I contacted the manufacturer, who had nothing on file from Walmart, and was able to get a new piece directly from them. So--I just hope if you order it arrives well!

Nice Size for a Child
I bought this for my daughter's nursery. I put this together being 5 months pregnant by myself with out any problems. It is a very heavy piece of furniture. I did have to figure out how to lay certain pieces to be able to put it together by myself. Definitely would have been easier with two, however my husband was away on business and i wanted to set up the nursery as a surprise.\nThe quality is a little better than i had expected. Like I said, it is very heavy (100 lbs), and stable. I had it delivered to my house and I was worried if the wood would be damaged at all. And to my surprise it wasn't. Everything looked great. I do wish the drawers were a little bit deeper though. But for a baby\/child I think it will work out just fine. It is made out of PINE, which is a very SOFT wood. So just keep that in mind. If you're careful all will be fine.\nAlso, the color is as it looks online. Matches pretty well with the Babymod Bella 3 piece Nursery Set. Not exact but really close. From a distance it looks like a matching set, but close up you can see a little difference.\nAll in all, it gets my approval!
We have the entire set and LOVE it! The pieces are sturdy and nice quality wood. I would have liked the drawer bottoms to be a bit more solid, but I think it will be fine!\n\nWORD OF CAUTION: There is an issue with the drawers once the furniture is put together. The drawers can collapse on each other when opening and closing them. What we found is happening is that because it is a tall dresser (this problem didn't happen with the small one) the middle of the dresser bows out a bit (although not visibly) and so the drawers can come off their tracks and fall to the drawer below. My husband fixed this by removing the tracks (on the actual furniture itself...not the drawers) and he put pads on the side that faces the wall of the dresser. You could use pads, shims, even possibly cardboard. Then he screwed each track back in place. This allowed for each track to jut out into the unit a bit more. This way, the drawers are able to stay on track. You should not HAVE to do this, but it really wasn't a hard fix if you like the entire set. And like I said, this problem does not happen on the 3 drawer changer.\n\nWe would still purchase this item again.

What our shoppers say:
We purchased this product after reading all of the positive reviews and the cost for the crib, changer, and dresser. The order was placed on Friday evening and they shipped it standard ground and we recieved it Tuesday when we arrived home from work. Great transit time. Take your time when putting this set together. All the parts were labeled and as long as you follow the instructions you should have no problem. The easiest item to put together was the changing table, then the crib. The dresser took the most time but again as long as you follow the directions and keep things organized you should have no problem. The set is beautiful and we are very happy with it.
I was hesitant to purchase this set because the price was so cheap, but after reading the reviews I decided to order. We live in a condo and my husband will also have his office in the babies room, so we didn't want a bunch of bulky expensive furniture. This set is perfect for us! We did the ship to store option, and everything arrived within a couple of days. My husband put all three pieces together in a few hours. He said everything was easily marked, although he was glad to have an electric screwdriver. The crib and changing table seem very sturdy and are a decent quality. As others have said, though, the dresser isn't the best. The wood is decent, but the drawers seem flimsy. The size and height are perfect for our current needs, though. Our baby is not due for a few more weeks, so I cannot comment on how well everything holds up, but so far so good. Overall, I am very happy with this set. If you are on a budget and looking for a nice nursery set, get this one! It definitely looks just as good as the more expensive one's out there.

What our shoppers say:
All wood except for drawer bottoms and dresser backing, very nice piece. Lay out and label hardware before building to facilitate process. Recommend 2 people to put together, and lots of patience. Large piece make sure to measure space before buying. Drawers seemed not as sturdy would recommend wood glue on seems after putting together, let dry before attaching to dresser.
