Rated 5 out of 5 by ckanejfergs Absolute crib for city living! Our bedroom is 82 sq ft so finding a long term crib for our daughter was a tricky task. The Alma Papa provided us a clean, simple, elegant piece of baby furniture that will last our daughter her first four years. We currently use it with the bed portion raised as our daughter is four months old and have had to collapse it twice for vacuuming and installing an air conditioner - each time simply according into and out of it's standard shape. The Alma Papa is worth the investment. May 22, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Afroditik Nice size This crib I love and I got the matching dresser also very nice . I had gotten it in brown and the colors were off on each side so I exchanged for white which I like better now.It folds very easy if you want to put away .I wish I had more selection on bedding though .

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lepine Perfect for small spaces! My husband and I love our Alma Papa Crib. Originally, we were drawn to it due to its clean lines & simple colors, but what we truly love is it fits in our very cramped one-bedroom NYC apartment. AND we get tons of compliments on it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by martined Love the Grey Color We got this crib for 2 reasons, one was the size (it fits great in our NYC apartment) and the other was the great grey color. It is very unique and looks great in the room! March 18, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Depot Looks great! We purchased it in the grey and it looks great! I loved the fact that its collapsible, but once we set it up in the nursery it isn't so large that we will even need to use the function yet. We will most likely collapse it and put it away once the baby has out grown it. If you want to see the color I saw it at the Long Island store because we were skeptical at first about the color.

Q:Hi, I am buying the alma papa crib and my friend wants to give me a custom mattress that is 24 x 47 inches. I see that the mattresses sold for the crib are 23.75 x 47.25 inches. Do you think there will be an issue with the 24 inch width fitting in the crib?
A:Due to its European design, the Alma Papa crib is not compatible with US standard sized crib mattresses and requires the purchase of a bloom Alma Papa Coco Mat Mattress or Alma Papa Pocket Spring Crib Mattress. giggle strongly recommends using a mattress and bedding made expressly for Bloom's Alma Papa Crib.
A:While Bloom's Alma Papa Crib is not GreenGuard certified at this time, it meets and/or exceeds CPSC, CPSIA, and ASTM requirements.
In addition, Bloom's dedicated to helping families build healthy indoor environments and their Alma Papa crib features sustainable wood, recyclable metals and plastics, plus low-VOC finishes.
Q:Does the mattress only have the one position shown or can it be elevated for younger babies?
A:Bloom's Alma Papa crib mattress support has two positions -- begin with the mattress support in the top position for easy acccess to your newborn, and then lower the mattress support once your baby begins showing active signs of movement, around 6 months old. Click on the orange "See Full Details" button on the product page for a complete list of features and benefits.
Q:What type of wood is this made of? Are there mdf or plywood components?
A:As a global distributor – and a giggle pick! - bloom is made in Vietnam, and is committed to meeting and exceeding the highest safety and other product standards required throughout the world.
As a global distributor, bloom typically launches product in the UK and Europe first (specifically EN716 for alma), thereby meeting British and European standards -- which the company considers equal to or more stringent than USA standards. bloom also meets and exceeds the Australia/New Zealand standards (specifically AS/NZS 2195 for alma) – widely considered the toughest in the industry. All bloom products, alma included, meet and exceed ASTM standards (specifically ASTM F406 for alma) required to sell in the USA. In addition to that, bloom products meet and exceed US CPSIA requirements.
Q:Can you use a regular size mattress with this crib?
A:Bloom's Alma Papa crib is considered a "specialty-size" crib, and requires the Bloom Alma Papa mattress and bedding that's been specifically made for the Papa.
Q:Specifically which safety standards does alma papa meet?
A:Bloom's Alma Papa meets and/or exceeds the following safety standards:
EN716:2008 – Standards for Folding Cots
ASTM F406:2009 – Standard Consumer Safety Specification for Non-Full-Size Baby Cribs
16CFR1509 – ASTM Standard for Non-Full Size Cribs
SOR/826-962 – CPSC Cribs and Cradles Recommendation
ASTM F2710:2008 – Standard Consumer Safety Performance Specification for Commercial Cribs
AS/NZS 2195:2009 – Australia/New Zealand Standard for Folding Cots
CPSIA – Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act
Q:I have the Alma mini crib. Is there something I can buy to convert it to the Alma Papa Crib in toddler form?
A:Bloom's Alma Mini Crib is rated for use from birth to age 2, and is not convertible/expandable for additional years' use. Bloom's Alma Papa Crib is rated for use from birth to age 4, and will convert to a toddler bed with the optional Alma Papa Toddler Rail. Like the Alma Mini, the Alma Papa folds for storage when not in use, but, unlike the Alma Mini, the Papa is considered a specialty-sized full-size crib.
Q:Does Alma Papa come fully assembled and folded? Does it come in 1 box? What are the box(es) dimensions?
A:The beauty of the Alma line - both the Alma and Alma Papa - is that it really is a “no assembly required” system. Alma’s come folded like an accordion, ready to open up and place the base inside. For the Alma Papa, an allen key is provided for a couple quick finishing steps. Bloom estimates the entire process takes less than 10-15 minutes. Super easy! The crib comes in two boxes and the mattress is sold separately and ships in its own, additional box. Box dimensions are: 8.5” x 40” x 29.75” and 9.5” x 40” x 29.75” for the two crib boxes.
