Our very own Harper crib is everything we think baby furniture should be — from its quality construction to its clean, classic lines that fit every decor style. Perfect for parents on a budget, the Harper was manufactured by Troll Nursery and designed with amazing value and long-term durability in mind. It's made from a combo of solid birch and birch plywood, can be converted into a toddler bed (with the purchase of our optional conversion kit), and is eco-responsible, containing non-toxic and low-VOC finishes.
Why it's a giggle pick With the Harper, we tried our best to take everything parents look for in a crib and pour it into one amazing piece of furniture, that blends together responsible manufacturing, sleek design, and impressive versatility. (You're welcome.)
See Full Details
Meets the following giggle Criteria:
BEST BASICS: These are the tried-and-true necessities that every new parent needs, such as burp cloths and baby bottles, plus some of those things that just make parenting a little simpler. Most of them are considered must-haves, and the rest will make your life so much easier they'll be a no-brainer. In this category, we look for convenience and functionality above all else.BEST BASICS: everyday baby essentials
MULTI-USE: Everyone wants to get the most for their money, but that doesn't always translate to the lowest price. Sometimes it means choosing one great product instead of buying multiple products over time. These products last longer and do more - whether they grow with your baby, live on beyond the baby years, or can be used for more than one purpose - so that you can always feel confident that you made a great investment.MULTI-USE: versatile & long-lasting
HEALTHY: Every parent's number-one goal is a healthy baby, and babies' developing systems are a lot more sensitive than adults. That's why we work hard to find products that won't introduce any more toxins than necessary into your home. Sometimes that means organic products that avoid pesticides and chemicals, but it also includes things like nontoxic cleaning products made from plant-based ingredients, or plastics without toxins likes BPA or phthalates.HEALTHY: made with safe or organic materials
SPACE-SAVING: Let's face it: Babies take up a lot of room. These space-saving essentials help make sure there's still enough room for everyone after the baby comes. Maybe they have a smaller footprint, or maybe they're easy to put away when you're not using them, but either way they're a whole lot easier than finding a bigger house!SPACE-SAVING: compact & easy to store
RESPONSIBLE: What's good for the world is good for our children. We put a special emphasis on environmentally friendly, "green" products that are made with nontoxic, recycled and sustainable materials. We also love products that help the communities where they're made, or that go the extra mile to support charitable causes. Plus, we love "local"!RESPONSIBLE: eco-friendly or locally produced

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.

Toddler Bed

Q: 
Hi there,

We purchased the Harper Crib in October (or so) of 2011. Recently I've seen images of the Harper Crib as a toddler bed with the ends of the crib making up a headboard and footboard. Did not see this configuration when I looked this time at the listing on the website. Is this an option for a model purchased last year? Is there a conversion kit we'll need to purchase for this configuration? It does not look like the toddler bed conversion kit you have listed.

We love that you love the newest addition to giggle's Harper collection, the Harper Toddler Bed! It's an alternative to a crib conversion kit and still maintains a crib-size footprint. Here's a list of giggle's Harper bed options:

--Harper Crib: Use it from birth and convert it into a toddler bed by replacing one of the long sides wiht the Harper Crib Conversion Kit.
--Harper Crib Conversion Kit: Extends the life of your Harper Crib by installing this conversion kit.
--Harper Toddler Bed: If you love the Harper collection, but are past the crib stage you can still buy Harper! Parents who need their crib for a 2nd or 3rd baby and whose toddler isn't quite ready for a "big bed" can now transition into giggle's Harper Toddler Bed, a unit that's completely independent from giggle's Harper Crib.

Hi,

If someone could get back to me ASAP, that would be very helpful.

I would like to purchase the Harper Crib
But first, I have a few questions

1). *******I am looking to find out what the ratings are on this crib for The CPSIA standards for lead and toxicity, in terms of PPM? I have seen other companies boast about how their cribs' paint and stains come in at 2 PPM, when the standard has to be below 90. How does the Harper compare?

2). Since the crib is manufactured in Europe, how does it rank based on EU Emissions Standards? (I know there is EO, E1, E2, etc.) This is also something I see other cribs advertising.

3). How does it rank in terms of California CARB Emissions phases?

Please do get back to me ASAP as I need an answer very soon.

Thank you!!

Q: 
We've had this crib since November of 2011 and have loved it. However, since my son is more mobile these days and moves around the crib a lot, his legs have been getting stuck in between the bars and in the slats on either end of the crib. Are the openings the standard size? It's very concerning as a few times his legs have been jammed and very difficult for me to get them out. Despite having installed breathable mesh crib bumpers, he's still getting jammed in the ends of the crib where the bumpers don't cover.

Thank you for your lovely review of giggle's Better Basics Harper Crib! While your experience is probably uncomfortable and upsetting, this may occur across vendors, and is not unique to one particular crib vendor, make, or model. Harper's crib slats are well within the safety standards and regulations that are current today.

You can rest assured that giggle's Better Basics Harper Crib meets and/or exceeds the entire scope of the required Consumer Product Safety Commission's (CPSC) crib safety standards and regulations as well as the voluntary American Standards for Testing and Materials (ASTM). In addition, Harper meets and exceeds global standards (and has been tested accordingly) that include, but go beyond, the traditional US (ASTM) voluntary standards, and has been independently tested to meet and exceed all US and European safety standards applicable for cribs.

To build a safe sleep environment, giggle recommends the following crib bedding "must haves":

1. A firm, snug-fitting mattress, such as giggle's Better Basics Organic Cotton Crib Mattress (or, any of the crib mattresses in giggle's assortment -- they're all firm and snug-fitting!).
2. A waterproof mattress pad, like giggle's Better Basics Organic Cotton Crib Mattress Pad, for easy mess clean-up.
3. Fitted crib sheets, like giggle's Better Basics Fitted Crib Sheets, with a deep pocket and elastic surround to make sure sheets stay-put.

An optional addition to any crib (including Harper!) is a crib skirt, which can add a nice design touch to your crib!
