This crib was given to me from by my aunt 2 years ago as a gift and i absolutly love it! We have it in white and its beautiful. Love the craftsmanship. We have not switched my daughter over yet to a toddler bed as of this moment so i cannot speak for that. However, the crib portion has stayed in great shape. No wear and tear and my daughter has plenty of room. My husband originally assembled the bed and i noticed it took him a litttle time. However, it was definatly worth the short wait seeing that the outcome was so positive.
