The Stork Craft Tuscany 4-in-1 Convertible Crib converts to toddler bed, then to a daybed, and finally to a full-sized bed. The toddler rail is included, but the full bed rails are not. Those are sold separately. This crib has a adjustable three position mattress base support system. It is constructed of solid wood and also wood products. This crib meets or exceeds all US and Canadian safety standards, including being JPMA certified. Included in your purchase is a one year limited warranty.
All four sides of this crib are stationary. In days of old, cribs often had a side that would move down so that the parent could easily set down and pick up their infant. The new safety standards now tell us that this is unsafe.
The construction of this crib is made from solid wood and other wood products. It is offered in a selection of non-toxic and durable finishes. This crib is designed to be used for all of the stages of your child's life from infancy to adulthood. This is good to remember when comparing prices. With this crib you essentially get a crib, toddler bed, daybed, and adult bed.
Keep in mind that this bed does not come with a mattress. It is fairly standard in the crib industry for a crib to not come with a mattress. When purchasing a mattress, make sure that it fits snugly. There should not be any gaps in between the crib sides and the mattress. A gap is a huge safety hazard for your baby.

What Other People Are Saying
Overall, parents were very happy with The Stork Craft Tuscany 4-in-1 Convertible Crib. I've read the reviews and condensed the main comments under the following categories. I hope this makes it easier for you when making a crib purchase.
Most Talked About Features:
Ease of Assembly
This crib seems to be about average in ease of assembly as compared to other cribs. It comes with an allen wrench which is nice. Keep in mind that this is not a travel crib or bassinet. It is going to be a heavy and sturdy piece of furniture, so it will take a bit longer to put together than some of the smaller sleeping beds.
The best way to assemble this crib is with two people. With help, plan for about an hour to put it together. Whatever you do, do not skip steps. Some parents learned this lesson the hard way and took several hours putting their crib together. If you have two people and follow the directions in order, you should finish in an hour or under. That was about the average time.
This crib is priced very low for what you get. If you are on a tight budget, you can find lower baby cribs on the market, though probably not too many that are convertible with this kind of price tag. This is definitely on the low end of the price spectrum for this kind of quality.
Most parents found that The Stork Craft Tuscany 4-in-1 Convertible Crib is a durable piece of furniture. It appears to be solid and it is built to last. Some are going on their next baby with the crib. One mom wrote this about the durability,
"Bought this a little over 2 years ago so my review is a little behind. The good news is my son is 2 1/2 years old and I just got done moving it to the baby's room for our new arrival in a couple of months. Crib has held up well. Completely disassembled and reassembled just fine."
Another wrote this about the durability,
"I love this crib!! My daughter actually sleeps in it which is nothing short of a miracle. It is also so adorable. I love how it looks and it is very solid and sturdy. It does not seem cheap at all!"
One thing that I liked about this crib is the comments that I read about customer service. Once you buy something, you are stuck with it if you happen to buy from a company with bad customer service. But this is not the case with The Store Craft Tuscany 4-in-1 Convertible Crib people. The comments from parents all seemed very positive. This comment here is typical of what I've been hearing,
"The best part about this is the customer service I received from Stork Craft when I requested a replacement part for a cracked piece on the footboard. I believe the crack was a combination of me over tightening hardware in a hole that was drilled a bit to close to the edge. But they replaced it within days at no cost and no questions asked. We bought this for our 15 month old daughter and have had it for a couple of months. We like it so much that we'll probably buy the same model in a different color for our son due in a couple of months."
If I were purchasing a crib, I'd feel good about giving The Stork Craft Tuscany 4-in-1 Convertible Crib a try. Not only will you have a crib, but this bed will grow with your child as it converts to a toddler bed, daybed, and then a full-sized bed. It is durable and should withstand a lot of wear. The price is very low compared to other convertible beds. The ease of assembly is about average, and the customer service appears great. I also like the look of this cute crib.
