Graco Sarah Classic Convertible Crib

Graco Sarah Crib

The Graco Sarah Classic is a convertible crib in the sleigh bed style so many parents love.

It is not overly dramatic in its sleigh bed styling, but has just enough ‘flair’ to give you that feel of romanticism and charm.

You will love that it is not some giant “monster” of a crib. It is not a crib that weighs hundreds of pounds, and can’t be moved when a favorite teddy bear falls behind it.  Trust me, you’ll appreciate that fact at 3am some night.

What the Graco Sarah does do, is give you a beautiful piece of furniture that can grow with your child – from infancy to their teen years.

This gorgeous crib is manufactured for Graco by Lajobi, one of todays best rated crib manufacturers.  In fact, according to the highly acclaimed Baby Bargains Book by Denise & Alan Fields, Lajobi  scores an “A” rating.

 Cons of the Sarah Convertible Crib:

With any product, there are going to be some customers who are less than satisfied.  In fact, if there weren’t I would be much more skeptical.  No product that is mass produced is going to be absolutely perfect every time.  And even if it were, there are those people who are nearly impossible to satisfy. Here are some of the Cons customers reported in various reviews:

  • A few customers had an issue with the finish ‘chipping’ off.  ( If baby is teething, you may want to invest in rail guards )
  • Some customers found the finish unacceptable, rough or appearing like the coloring was uneven. (There are a few pictures on Amazon.com of what some called ‘chips’ – I personally didn’t see them as a big deal, but you can check them out and judge for yourself on the Amazon Customer Images page.
  • Many of the reviews are several years old and complain of the drop side being defective.  Rest assured since 2010, the fate of the drop side crib was sealed when they were permanently banned by the CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission).

How To Care for and Clean Graco Cribs

When the crib gets dusty, the best way to clean is with a duster, or to gently wipe with a soft cloth.  If the crib need a more thorough cleaning the manufacturer recommends you choose a non-abrasive cleaner.  They recommend a mix of water and some mild dish detergent. Apply to crib surface with a soft cloth and dry completely when finished.

Do Not polish your crib more than 2 to 3 times a year as this can distort the finish over time.
