One of the necessities on Gina’s wish list for her unborn child is, of course a crib. A babe has to have a place to slumber, right? hehee!
And when I saw her listing I knew exactly where this all-important item would come from. Knowing the superb quality that Delta Children’s Products has to offer, I didn’t hesitate to scope out the perfect crib for my grand child on their website.
As you may remember I worked with Delta last year on a review of their Eclipse glider and ottoman combo and was quite impressed with the styling and quality materials. It’s still holding up, looks just as beautiful as the day I received it, and definitely still one of my favorite places to sit.
What’s great about Delta’s nursery furniture is that it’s made of solid hardwood, no MDF or particle board like their competitors. And they’re very sturdy. So, why would I choose any other brand?
Once Gina looked over the styles and colors Delta offers she decided on the black Canton 4 in 1 Convertible Crib. It’s actually quite beautiful with curves in all the right places and the black finish up against bright colors is very attractive!
The Canton has sort of a sleigh bed kind of style, don’t you think?
I really can’t boast enough about how nice this crib truly is. Sure it looks pretty on the website but once you actually see it put together, it’s breathtaking!
Assembly was extremely easy too. My hubby helped get everything started and Gina and I kind of took over from there. She wanted to be a part of building her baby’s bed. hehee!
As hubby and I always do, we started by laying out all of the pieces and matching each piece with the parts list in the manual. Yep, everything was there so we began. I really appreciate when an instruction manual includes images to go along with each step. It makes it SO much easier, not to mention it doesn’t take as much time trying to figure everything out.
1.) Well packed during shipping 2.) Mom-to-be helping the assembly
3.) Nonno (grandpa) attaching a screw 4.) Almost finished
I also love when all of the pre-drilled holes match up and the screws go in as they should. Everything went smoothly with the Canton crib and in no time it was finished.
This crib is super sturdy. It doesn’t weigh a lot so it’s easy to move for cleaning or rearranging purposes, but the legs are nice and thick and the counter sunk screws make for a much tighter fit and heftier feel. It would take quite a bit of effort for an adult to tip this bed so I’m definitely not worried about safety here.
HOW DOES IT MEASURE UP?
The Canton 4 in 1 Convertible Crib measures 54″ x 33.4″ x 41.4″ and weighs 65 pounds.
With this beauty you get literally 4 beds in one; a sleek, and elegant crib, a toddler bed (comes with the toddler bed rail), daybed and full-size bed (side boards not included). A great deal for the price!
Now once we find out the baby’s gender we can get some bedding!
I can’t wait to paint those bright purple walls. hahaa!
One thing I want to mention, which may not be a big deal to you, is that Delta took the time to attach the manual envelope to the springs (with wire ties) on the crib. Reason being, it helps you keep the instruction manual in a location that is easy to remember and find in case you need it. So, the manual is stored underneath the mattress at all times.
Also, the crib springs (supports) are covered in a thick, hard rust proof finish. I love the consistent black stain finish on the wood as well. And if your child decides to use the rails to gnaw on when they’re in the teething stage, it wouldn’t be a huge deal in refinishing this crib. Especially since it’s made of real hardwood. Delta has definitely went above and beyond with this crib and I love that!
The Canton 4 in 1 Convertible Crib comes in 3 gorgeous color finishes; Black, Dark Cherry, and Espresso Cherry. You can purchase them at retailers such as Target, Toys R Us, and Walmart. As well as online at Amazon.com. MSRP is $249.99 and definitely worth the price.
Delta Children’s Products also offers an extensive line of additional furnishings to match each collection including the Canton so you can decorate your whole baby’s nursery in beautiful style. Plus, they’re very affordable!
