Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Crib I absolutely love this crib. What attracted me was it's clean design and natural finish. Before putting it on our registry, I went to see it in person at a Giggle store and it was even nicer than I had expected. We've had this crib for 7 months now, and I really have no complaints. Except, maybe, that when I ordered it was on backorder and took a few weeks to arrive. In fact, the morning that it was scheduled to be delivered and set up, my water broke! Luckily this was my second kid so I wasn't too anxious...and waiting around for the delivery people that morning was worth it even in labor. I still love this crib and so does our daughter (but a crib is a crib to a baby I think...). It is VERY sturdy, and I am planning on keeping it to pass down to any other children we have, and then maybe even to grandkids someday. March 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful We found that shopping for a crib became more of a search for something that wasn't ugly. This crib is actually beautiful. We purchased the walnut one and it is just perfect. I love that it wasn't outrageously expensive and that we have the option to buy the conversion kit in the future. October 25, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Cannot use crib bumpers We chose the Harper because we already had some birch furniture we wanted to match a crib to. It was the least prison-cell type design and we liked that it met giggle's criteria and was less than a grand. It looks great in the baby's room. It is sturdy and seems well built. However, when the baby started turning, limbs started creeping out. We got a bumper and realized the curved edges don't allow for the bumper to be tied. The people at giggle recommend not putting anything in the crib. I'm not gonna let my kid sleep with an arm or foot wedged between the wood. We kept the bumpers and tied them where we could. Had I known I may have made a different choice. June 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful well-made crib! I love this crib and for the price it is far superior to so many poorly made products out there. It's solid wood and so sturdy. We bought it in natural which looks great and I like that it isn't your typical white crib. May 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Solid Crib Great modern look and not too big. Due to the thicker corners, note that attaching bumpers is very difficult if you plan to use one. But overall, we love the design of the crib and for the price it is much sturdier than cribs we've seen at other stores. May 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful, safe + sturdy We love our Harper crib. The rounded corners are lovely, it's easy to assemble and to drop the mattress once the baby is standing. I'm looking for a great, organic teething rail cover in case anyone has suggestions. May 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this crib! The Harper crib is fantastic. Not only does it look clean and modern, but it fits comfortably in our small nursery without overwhelming the rest of the space. Initially we had some issues with the legs not screwing on tight enough but once we brought that to the attention to the folks at giggle, it was an easy swap for new legs - great customer service! In spite of the initial issue with the legs, we love this crib-- and so does our baby. Totally recommend this to anyone looking for a moderately priced and well designed piece of nursery furniture. May 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 15 months later, happier than ever we bought this crib for my first son and started using it when he was four months old. After a year of everyday use it is still solid, despite my son biting the rails, milk spills, and my 2 year old nephew jumping on it on occasion. Assembly was easy. May 21, 2013

A: 
giggle's Harper Crib mattress support, where your crib skirt is placed, has curved, rather than square, corners. This means that the corners touch more of the crib sides and may cause your crib skirt to not be flush in the crib's corners. We encourage you to visit your local neighborhood giggle store to check-out Harper to see how a crib skirt will fit to decide if it's right for you.

A: 
Harper's mattress support is attached/assembled at 4 points on each of the 4 corner legs. To lower the mattress support, simply grab an Allen wrench from your toolkit (or, if you still have it, the Allen wrench that came with your Harper Crib hardware pack), remove (one at a time!) all 4 screws and 4 washers from the 4 insertion points, and reposition the mattress support at the middle or lowest mattress settings. Then reinsert the 4 screws and 4 washers, making sure to loosely tighten the screw/washer sets until all 4 are inserted, then tighten-up all 4 screw/washer sets really well.

Q: 
Hi, I am wondering what specific safety standards The Giggle Better Basics Crib meets. On the Troll Nursery website it states: Cribs confirm to: EN 1130; Cots confirm to: EN 716 1&2. Are these the European standards the crib meets? Are there different US Standards that it also meets?

Corner dimensions

Q: 
Can you please tell me the what the assembled width or distance of the corner pieces of the crib are? I am trying to figure out whether the bumper (and its ties) I already purchased and will use will work with the Harper. The bumper will need to be secure and I will need to tie it at the corners.

Plywood

Q: 
Hello! I'm registered for the Harper Crib and very excited about it's construction, value, and apparent eco-friendliness.

Today I read an article on the Huffington Post ( http://www.huffingtonpost.com/jennifer-grayson/eco-etiquette-should-i-fr_b_814096.html#s230152&title=Giggle_Harper_Crib ) regarding the safety of crib materials and the Harper Crib was featured as a good option.

I am wondering however about the birch plywood -- is this environmentally- and baby-friendly? The HuffPo article states "Specifically, pressed wood furniture, which includes particleboard (hello, Ikea!), some plywood, and medium density fiberboard [...] All of these wood products are made from itty bitty pieces of wood that are bonded with a resin that contains formaldehyde. We also know that formaldehyde, is indeed, highly toxic. The World Health Organization calls it a known carcinogen; EPA concurs, linking its inhalation to a host of cancers, including nasopharyngeal cancers, leukemia, and lymphoma."

Is there any need for parents to be concerned about possible harm to baby? Thanks very much for your time and assistance!

A: 
To use a bumper or not to use a bumper is based on a parent’s individual informed philosophy about their child’s sleep environment. Crib bumpers are optional pieces of bedding and are approved for use by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) up to a child’s 6 month milestone.

Experts unanimously agree that an infant’s sleep area should be both well ventilated and temperature regulated. Should you choose to use a bumper, follow these steps to ensure that the bumper is installed just right:

1.The bottom 1/3 of the crib bumper will be pushed down in-between the crib’s mattress and the crib’s side – this will shore-up any gap and will prevent an infant from pushing themselves under the bumper.
2.The bumper will then be tightly tied to the crib slats to secure it in-place and prevent it from moving -- depending on the crib design you may need to move around the bumper to find the best way to secure it.

Every family is different, and giggle recommends that parents consult a trusted resource, such as their family’s physician, to determine whether a bumper is right for their child’s sleep environment.

JPMA Certified?

Q: 
I noticed that about 2 yrs ago there were 2 questions from potential users regarding the JPMA certification. I understand that the crib has other safety certifications but is giggle or the manufacturer planning or has undergone JPMA certification? Is the crib JPMA certified?

A: 
We're proud to answer that our giggle Better Basics Harper Collection meets all CPSC, CPSIA, CFR & ASTM standards, and all EU Emissions Standards.

Although we work closely with the JPMA and appreciate the hard work that they are trying to do on behalf of juvenile manufacturers in our industry today, after evaluating the costs of this additional certification we have decided at this time to not pursue JPMA certification in order to keep our high quality crib a budget-friendly option for more consumers.

As you know, JPMA certification confirms that a product meets all of the US standards. We use the same independent testing labs as the JPMA and have independently tested with third party certification that the Harper meets all such standards and stand behind that certification. Moreover, we have invested additional testing dollars to ensure that the Harper meets not only US but also European manufacturing standards for cribs.
