We've been fans of Giggle's Better Basics line for its seemingly perfect matrix of quality, practicality, style and affordability, but not in our wildest imagination did we think they'd add a crib to their offerings. Best of all, it's about $500.
The Harper crib is what many parents have been waiting for: simple, yet attractive; made of solid wood (birch with plywood end panels); the option to convert to a toddler bed and, most importantly at a reasonable price point.
Not to be overlooked is the companion Harper changing table. While we like a comfortable changing surface, we're not usually fans of actual changing tables, but this one may change our mind. Not only does it appear significantly sturdier than most, the design doesn't shout "changing table!" and we really do believe this could have a long life in your child's room as a bookshelf or as other storage.
Both Harper items come in natural or walnut color with the walnut color costing slightly more. The crib will sell for $500-550 and the changing table for $325-350. The toddler bed conversion kit will be $100-110.
They won't ship for a few more weeks, but you can pre-order them at Giggle.
