Storkcraft Crib Recall

Yesterday Storkccaft, in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commision, issued a recall of more the 2.1 million drop-side cribs with plastic trigger and one-hand-system drop-side hardware, some which were produced under the Fisher Price logo. It seems like we have been hearing for years now about the dangers of these cribs (entrapment or suffocation caused by worn out, loose and otherwise faulty drop-sides) so I'm glad to hear that Storkcraft is doing something about it.

The official CPSC recall statement with details on affected cribs is available .

So, what do you do if your crib is one that was included in the recall? Its actually pretty easy: contact Storkcraft for a repair kit at 877-274-0277 or . You do not need a receipt, just the model number from your crib.

Of course, there is high traffic on the Storkcraft website and phone line, so in the meanwhile make sure that all of the hardware on your crib is working properly and that pieces are not loose, improperly installed, or missing. You may even just want to play it safe in the future by looking into getting a stationary-sided crib. My thoughts: why play with fire?

Store Review: Babies R Us, College Point

I'm still pleasantly surprised when I come across an area of Queens that reminds me of my suburban upbringing. For example, the Babies R Us in College Point Queens is huge, clean, and organized, with tons of free parking outside--just like blessed suburbia!

Even on a Sunday afternoon,
we were able to get in and out of the store in 20 minutes or so to pick up our crib (which had been pre-ordered from a BRU upstate). We tossed that huge box into the car (with the help of the store staff of course), picked up some Chinese takeout, and headed on 36棋牌. How nice to not have to stand in long Manhattan lines or lug everything 36棋牌 on our backs!

Here's our beautiful Sorelle lifetime crib, which we have yet to build, and which was purchased on-sale for $275!


I would definitely recommend getting your furnit ure through this store. If I could do it again, I'd probably set up my registry at this store too since it is much easier to navigate--and less crowded--than the store in Manhattan's Union Square.

Now, if I open up the box and find out the crib is in any way damaged, I may be singing another tune! I'll keep you posted with pics soon, Queens Mamas.
