This is a very nice crib and we are happy with our selection - especially with not being able to see it in a store ahead of time! It has a nice feel and finish to it. It is not a cheap plywood-type unit. The instructions include pictures to explain how to put the pieces together, and we built it in about a half an hour. The crib was easy to put together and comes with everything needed to become a toddler bed. We also purchased the full-size conversion kit, so that when we need to convert it, we will have the kit.
Everything was packaged well, no chance of being damaged in shipping. This crib is a nice unisex choice and could grow well with a boy or a girl.
