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.)

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!

The only safe conversion option for the Harper crib does require the toddler bed conversion kit. The kit is critical to maintaining the structural integrity of the crib when used as a toddler bed.

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?

Q: 
The crib has three height settings, does this mean that it can be used safely as a bassinet-like bed for a newborn/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.
