Child Craft Eastland Lifetime
Parents reluctant to spend big bucks buying more than one bed as their kids grow can rest easy with the Eastland Lifetime. This crib, which received the highest rating on our Top 10 List, is billed as the only bed parents will ever need to purchase for their child. It converts from a crib to a toddler bed, then to a full size bed, although the full size bed rails will need to be bought separately. The crib mattress – sold separately – can be adjusted to three different heights.
The sides are stationary, to prevent little fingers from getting pinched by hinges or moving parts. Safety information in this crib is readily available. It is JPMA certified and it complies with mandatory and voluntary standards, including 16CFR 1508.6, ASTM-F1169 and ASTM-F966. It is made of pine, has a non-toxic finish and weighs 85 pounds. It has a 15-year limited warranty, which beats by a long shot other crib brands with only a one-year or five-year warranty. The Child Craft Eastland is available at Wal-Mart, Sears and K mart. The price ranges anywhere from $299.98 to $415.55, depending on whether it’s purchased in the store or online.

Compared to the Dream on Me Madison, weighing just 35 pounds, or even the Carter Manchester, which weighs about 53 pounds, this is a fairly heavy crib at 85 pounds.
