Inexpensive and Expensive Versions of the Modern Baby Crib

Simple or Swank: Modern Crib

A safe crib is one of the most important items new parents can invest in, but with so many styles on the market — it is easy to spend a fortune on one that blends with your current furniture choices. Over the past few years, modular cribs have become all the rage with prices to reflect their popularity.

Simple: The two-tone Baby Mod 3-in-1 Olivia Crib from Walmart ($300) is finished with non-toxic paints and easily converts from crib, to toddler bed and eventually into a daybed, allowing it to evolve with your child's growing needs.
Swank: The Oeuf Classic Crib ($890) comes in either a birch or walnut finish and easily converts into a toddler bed. Each of the crib's sides is cut from single sheets of wood panel to ensure their sturdiness.

Which one do you prefer?

I love the color of the Oeuf.

Actually my Oeuf is in the color scheme of the walmart one. I have a matching dresser and love the contrasty color of the walnut.

I really like the simple one. The swank one doesn't do anything for me. It might be the color of the wood...

Overstock has a modern crib that looks a lot like the swank one but is even more inexpensive than the simple one.

We have a Jenny... something one that's a 3 in 1 and cost us $100. I think it's about $150 nowadays. Granted, none of the kids ever slept in it but it's incredibly sturdy and still looks great. The last few years it's been the boys' play climber. *lol*

I have the Oeuf, once again it's one of those things that I wouldn't have bought for myself at that price but I have a very generous MIL. It truly is rock solid and fantastic quality. If we wouldn't have bought the toddler bed conversion kit I don't think I would have let her get it for us as this will be our last baby. I would love to see the simple one to compare the craftsmanship as you never know.
