Graco Shelby Classic 4 in 1 Convertible Crib

**UPDATE:  The Graco Shelby as shown here has been unavailable for quite some time.  After checking with the manufacturers website, they no longer appear to be offering this crib for sale.

The closest style Graco offers is the “Sarah” 4-in-1 Convertible Crib which is available in 4 color finishes.  A more complete review of this crib will be coming soon.

Since the product pages will be subject to disappear in the future, the links to the products below may or may not be functional.  We have left them in place on the unlikely event that the Shelby Classic actually Does come back in stock.  

This Graco Shelby Classic sleigh bed inspired crib design by Graco comes in your choice of two finishes, cappuccino or cherry.

The cappuccino finish has small pin holes in the finish to give it a more ‘distressed’ look.

The cherry is a smooth blemish free finish.

The Graco Shelby Classic 4 in 1 crib is JPMA, ASTM and CPSC certified as meeting all safety standards required for cribs.

The Graco Shelby has 3 levels of height adjustment.

This beautiful baby furniture converts from crib, to toddler bed (no guard rail required), to a day bed and a full sized headboard, although the full sized bed frame and mattress is Not Included.  It uses a standard sized crib mattress which is also not included.

The feature that sets the Graco Shelby Classic apart from most others is it’s lower height – standing just 34.8″ high, it makes putting your baby in and getting her out much easier for shorter parents, although taller parents did not complain of it being too low, except a few comments in the reviews I compared.

This crib also comes with a 5 year limited manufacturer’s warranty against defects.

At the time of this review, it was priced just below $200, but you can check how much it sells for today by clicking on one of the retailers below.

Pros of the Graco Shelby Classic convertible crib: The most common positive attributes that customers who have purchased the Shelby crib are that it is a beautiful, sturdy crib that was a good value for the price. The various finishes available made it suitable for most any decor. The smaller size made it perfect for use in smaller bedrooms, and had ease of putting baby in or getting them out of the crib for shorter parents. Most of the parents had no problems in assembling the crib but wished the directions were a bit more clear.

Cons of the Graco Shelby Classic convertible crib:

The main complaint was the susceptibility of the finish to minor scratching. The pine construction is soft enough that it seems to scratch or dent easier than a hardwood crib would. There were parents who said that their baby would bite on the side rails when they were teething, leaving marks.

What customers are saying about the Graco Shelby Classic 4-in-1 Convertible Crib:

  • “…Being 5’2″ I was very concerned about finding a crib I could actually use with the mattress on its lowest setting. Most of the ones I tried required the use of a step stool, which seems far more dangerous than a drop-side.”

 

  • “…The color is wonderful but hard to find matching furniture. It was easy to put together and is very sturdy…”

 

  • “…The crib itself is VERY sturdy and didn’t take long to put together. No plastic pieces and the…”

 

  • “…The cherry finish is gorgeous! Although it does sit a little low, im 5’7” and dont see it as being an issue. I was able to put it together by myself at 6 months pregnant with no problem… “

 

  • “…It didn’t take too long for my husband to put it together (about half an hour), although he says the directions could have been clearer. The crib is very sturdy and looks nice in our nursery. It matches our Ikea Leksvik dresser perfectly…”

 

  • “…the crib comes with a big sign that says it should only be used with mattresses at least 27 1/4″ by 51 5/8″, and most mattresses are only 27″ by 51.5…”
