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.)

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

Every crib we sell at giggle meets or exceeds the highest standards required. One of the things we’re most proud of at giggle, is our commitment to being a trusted partner to new parents. Read our giggle Criteria to learn more about how we pick every giggle product:

http://www.giggle.com/giggle-Criter...

Like every other company selling cribs today, we are not in a position to say the cribs we sell are “certified” under the CPSC’s new law that goes into effect in July 2011. The reason is because the CPSC has just recently certified testing labs to be able to provide those certifications; until the labs catch up, manufacturers cannot post compliance certificates with the new laws. Every line available on the market is now being resubmitted for testing between now and the end of June. For more information about this transition, please visit our Safety Bulletin on the CPSC’s FAQs on the new crib standards and the industry’s transition.

We absolutely stand behind every product we sell. You can and should feel very confident in your giggle Better Basics Harper crib purchase as a smart and safe sleeping solution for your child.

Conversion options

Q: 
Are there any conversion options for this crib that do not require the conversion kit...for example, is it possible to convert it to a toddler bed (without guards) by just taking off one side of the crib? Thanks!

A: 
It's a little less than 6 inches, so it's pretty short at the lowest part of the rail. There is more room under the rail for storage, but not necessarily for pulling something in and out given the low point of the rail. Hope this helps!

Like every crib manufacturer that sells cribs in the United States, we are reviewing very closely the CPSC’s newly approved (but not yet effective) standard. Because our Harper Crib meets and exceeds global standards (and has been tested accordingly) that include but go beyond the traditional US (ASTM) volunteer standards, we are confident that it does. However, because the new standard defines new standards for things like placement of labels (location on the crib) the Harper and every other crib we sell will go through new testing to ensure compliance during the transition in between between January 1st and June.

A: 
Our Harper crib has been independently tested to meet and exceed all US and European safety standards applicable for cribs. 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.

For infant?

Staff Answer
A: 
The Harper Crib and most standard-sized cribs have three or four mattress height settings. The idea is to keep it higher at first, so it's easier to reach into, then lower it as your baby becomes more mobile, to keep them from jumping or climbing out.

Bassinets are really only an option for newborns and infants. Depending on the size of your baby, it will only be useful for three to six months. Cribs can safely be used from day one, and most children stay in a crib until sometime after their second birthday.
