DaVinci Kalani 4-in-1 Convertible Crib with Toddler Rail (Cherry)

Updated on August 24, 2016

DaVinci Kalani Convertible Crib Review

Award-winning and with rave reviews from experts and parents, Kalani is one of the most reliable and sought-after cribs today. Built from solid wood and with a range of conversions, Kalani Crib provides your child with a safe, stable haven, year after year. It’s worth the time and money in the end you will be very pleased. The whole crib arrived in almost perfect condition. As with building anything you have to neatly disassemble all items from the packaging and get a feel for it and the instructions before building. If you do find it difficult to assemble the crib, search for a Youtube video that explains step by step on how to put it together. Otherwise it will lead to frustration and errors. The instructions were in an envelope with the box and you’ll be able to get the jest of it pretty quickly. It’s nice and sturdy despite the few cam-locks. I think all you’ll need is manual Phillips-head screw driver to tighten the cams.

But you should exercise caution to prevent over tightening screws since you only get one chance, once over tightened it can be loose forever unless you get some type of wood glue. This crib has a beautiful cherry wood stain finish, made with non-toxic wood stains.The quality of this crib is just as good as the quality of the more expensive cribs and furniture with one exception. If you plan to use this as a head board/full size bed, you do need to purchase the conversion kit for about $85. Otherwise everything is included to transform this from a crib to a toddler bed and a day bed. With the toddler rail included, you immediately save a hundred dollars. Again, I had no problem with assembling it and finished within an hour and a half. The quality is excellent and the crib looks great for either baby girls or baby boys.

If you want a crib with the Greenguard certification to avoid many toxins that are added to conventional cribs you’re on the right track. I have worried about the finish and toxins when the little one starts teething and never the less chewing on the crib at some point. I was so excited to see a crib at a reasonable price with Greenguard certification. Many sites have cribs are starting around $400-500 for the Greenguard certification. While most cribs only offer three mattress settings that are either too far apart or do four height settings that aren’t reasonable this crib hits the mark. If you are of a shorter stature, like me, this will be a highlight for you. Some crib slats are a pain to adjust and could slip and slide around but you won’t have that problem with the Davinci Kalani. Slat strength is 135 lbs. Add to that the sustainable material and you’ve got yourself a beautiful, a fordable, guilt free new baby crib for the perfect baby.
