I need to order a bassinet hood for my graco bassinet and I cant find the model number, or its not showing up in the data base.


Graco bassinets for a long time have been made by Simplicity. If it is older
it is most likely on recall. The model number is on the posture board (mattress support)
and you should compare your bassinet with the recalled listings on the link below.
CPSC recalled all of the Simplicity/Graco bassinets that have snaps that hold the drop
down flap where the bassinet butts up to the bed.
If it is on recall, Walmart will refund to you, the full retail price it was sold for, NO RECEIPT REQUIRED.
If it not on recall call Graco at 1-800-345-4109

Where on my Winnie the Pooh 4-in-1 Convertible Bassinet do I find the model number


Please note, Simplicity has gone out of business and the Simplicity Bassinets should NOT be used. They were sold at Walmart, Target and BabiesRUs. The word on the street is that Walmart is the easiest to deal with when it comes to returning them. Those who wish to return Simplicity cribs don't need a receipt, they can just take them to Walmart for store credit. BabiesRUs was apparently giving about $65 while Walmart was closer to $190. Again, this is just what I have heard from others.

You can find the specific information on the Simplicity recall here:

I would pack it up, take it in for store credit, and get a new crib!

You can get some great deals these days on bassinets, there's a great one on Amazon for $130 so it's kind of a no-brainer. Here's one of the top rated:

Good Luck.

Is this crib on the recall


Yes it is under the recall.

The death of two more infants trapped in Simplicity bassinets prompted the Consumer Product Safety Commission to re-announce its August 2008 recall of the child beds on Thursday.

The recall was first announced last year after the death of two other children. A total of four deaths have been reported to the commission involving Simplicity bassinets.

The recall includes more than 900,000 bassinets sold as far back as 2001 and as recently as last year.

The hazard in the Simplicity 3-in-1 and 4-in-1 convertible bassinets stems from metal bars spaced farther apart than federal standards allow, the commission said.

If Velcro-attached fabric that covers metal bars on the bassinet is attached improperly, a pocket can be created where children can become trapped, the commission said.

Children also can become stuck between the bassinet's metal bars without the fabric attached, the agency said.

In the latest two incidents, a 6-month-old girl in Fort Worth died in January after she was trapped between two exposed bars on the bassinet.

In September 2008, a 2-month-old girl in Demorest, Ga., suffocated when she was caught in a pocket of fabric, which was not properly secured to the bassinet.

The commission also received two other reports involving 10-week-old and 3-month-old infants whose heads became trapped between the bassinet's lower bar and mattress. The infants were freed and uninjured, the commission said.

The recalled bassinets were manufactured before May 18, 2008, and include some sold under the Graco brand and others with Winnie the Pooh characters printed on the bed's fabric.

Simplicity is owned by children's furniture manufacturer SFCA Inc. of Reading, Pa.

The model numbers for recalled Simplicity bassinets are: 3000, 3010, 3011, 3012, 3013, 3014, 3015, 3016, 3017, 3020, 3025, 3026, 3027, 3030, 3040, 3045, 3046, 3047, 3050, 3060, 3070, 3111, 3112, 343-8363, 343-8399, 5730, 5750, 8383, 9250 and TD250, the commission said.

Model numbers on the recalled Graco-branded bassinets include: 3000CL, 3010HAV, 3011WHE, 3011WHK, 3014NGS, 3016LAU, 3017NCB, 3025C, 3030SAR, 3050SAR, 3111DPC, 3111ZOL, 3112DOH, 3122TGT, 5730FKB, 5750SAR, 8393, Graco said in its own recall statement.

Owners of the recalled bassinets can return the beds to the stores where they bought them, the safety commission said. Sources: http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-crib-recall21-2009aug21,0,4022989.story

Simplicity 4-in-1 crib model 8676c replacmnt prts


The company is out of business. Although your's in NOT one of the recalled items,you will not be able to contact them or buy parts.
Have you tried other hardware stores aside from Home Depot? You could also try an automotive store...sometimes they have those odd sizes.
Please read the following:
About 1 Million Simplicity Cribs Recalled Due To Failures Resulting in Infant Deaths.
Note: The firm appears to no longer conduct day-to-day operations. Repair kits are no longer available to fix these recalled cribs. Parents and caregivers are advised to dispose of these cribs, even if it is believed that the hardware and drop side have been installed correctly. All of the recalled cribs have the potential to pose a danger to young children.
The recalled cribs have one of the following model numbers, which can be found on the envelope attached to the mattress support and on the label attached to the headboard: 4600, 4605, 4705, 5000, 8000, 8324, 8800, 8740, 8910, 8994, 8050, 8750, 8760, and 8996.

It was bought at a yard sale.....


hi. i have those directions. i have model no. 3013 pro. this can be found on the mattress support. if it is the same type of bed attachment, then here are the directions (if it isn't the same then it gives you a general idea of how it works)

converting to a bedside sleeper
remove canopy from bassinet.
unsnap the fabric and remove the removable cross tube from the bassinet frame
fold the Velcro panel down over the support bar and tuck under fabric bottom
position the retainer plate on the side of the bed opposite where the bedside sleeper will be, thread the retainer strap through the space between the mattress and box spring. make sure retainer plate is vertical and flush against the mattress and box spring.
connect the strap ends to the snap connectors on the support tube. bassinet must be pulled snugly along side of the bed.

if that isn't right, here is their support number: 18008588323.
hope it works.
