    same problem

    That happens with mine too. Well, it did. I don't have it any more. I called Fisher Price and even though it was made by Simplicity, FP will still help you out. At this point they do not plan a recall but hopefully they will since it is not safe. I thought the answer when I called made it sound like a common problem and that was when I did some internet searching to find out and it is. I reported it to CPSC as did others and I urge you to also. Anyway, what FP will do if you call is have you send the fabric panels and they will pay the shipping on that then they will send you a check for $99.99. I just sent in my panels last week, so have not received the check.

    I have the same problem. My baby is only 10 months and we can no longer use it. I'm afraid to use it with a smaller baby for fear that an older child will be curious and pull on the side and it will collapse. I can't belive that it hasn't been recalled.

    there are replacement part available on ebay but mine broke with so little weight i can't imagine that just replacing the same part will resolve the issue.

    I noticed the same problem with the rails collapsing and called Simplicity on 4/08. I was told it had to be locked a certain way and it wasn't what was written in the instructions included in the pack n play. They said they were not required to notify anyone.

    I have a Graco as well and usually use that one but used the Rainforest one yesterday for my 1 year old to nap in. I was in the bedroom napping too when I heard a big thump and cry. I look over and a side collapsed and my daughter was ON THE FLOOR OUTSIDE of the pack n play. Whether she fell out of it while leaning on it or climbed on it after it collapsed I don't know. DO NOT USE THIS PACK AND PLAY!!!

I went on line to try to get a manual, and found out my crib has been recalled. I bought it in 2006 at walmart will they rerfund for it?


I believe that this particular recall is not a traditional recall so to speak. A recall does not mean that they're actually recalling them, but more so it indicates a problem with the unit itself. This particular recall involves a kit that will fix the issue... The problem identified is reports of the side dropping down unexpectedly. The fix is a kit that they will send out, that will keep the drop down side from moving at all.
Here is some information about the recall itself, as well as a phone number to call regarding the recall.
The recalled wood cribs came in cherry, espresso, natural and white finishes. The name "LaJobi" and the crib's model number can be found on a sticker on the stabilizer bar or on the bottom rail of the crib.

The China- and Vietnam-made cribs were sold nationwide from February 2007 through March 2010 for $140-$200.

If you have one of the cribs, you are asked to stop using it until you receive a hardware kit from LaJobi that will immobilize the drop side.

For more information, call LaJobi at (888) 842-2215 or visit the company's website.

Recall, Baby cribs. U.S Consumer Product Safety Comm.


About 1 Million Simplicity Cribs Recalled Due To Failures Resulting in Infant Deaths NOTE: Repair Kits that immobilize the drop-side are now available
ALSO NOTE: Consumers who have participated or have yet to respond to Simplicity’s June 2007 recall of Nursery-in-a-Box cribs are strongly urged to also participate in this recall. AND ADDITIONALLY: A subsequent recall involving Simplicity drop side cribs has been issued. WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is announcing today a voluntary recall with Simplicity Inc., of Reading, Pa., of about 1 million cribs. The drop-side can detach from the crib, which can create a dangerous gap and lead to the entrapment and suffocation of infants. CPSC is aware of two deaths in Simplicity manufactured cribs with older style hardware, including a 9-month-old child and a 6-month-old child, where the drop-side was installed upside down. CPSC is also aware of seven infant entrapments and 55 incidents in these cribs. CPSC is also investigating the death of a 1-year-old child in a Simplicity crib with newer style hardware, in which the drop-side was installed upside down. CPSC is warning parents and caregivers to check all Simplicity cribs to make sure the drop-side is installed right side up. The drop-side failures result from both the hardware and crib design, which allow consumers to unintentionally install the drop-side upside down. This, in turn, can weaken the hardware and cause the drop-side to detach from the crib. When the drop-side detaches, it creates a gap in which infants can become entrapped. CPSC is also aware of two incidents that occurred when the drop-side was correctly installed with older style hardware, though the upside down installation greatly increases the risk of failure. The recalled Simplicity crib models include: Aspen 3 in 1, Aspen 4 in 1, Nursery-in-a-Box, Crib N Changer Combo, Chelsea and Pooh 4 in 1. The recall also involves the following Simplicity cribs that used the Graco logo: Aspen 3 in 1, Ultra 3 in 1, Ultra 4 in1, Ultra 5 in 1, Whitney and the Trio. 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. The cribs, which were made in China, were sold in department stores, children’s stores and mass merchandisers nationwide from January 1998 through May 2007 for between $100 and $300. As an immediate precaution, consumers should check to see if the drop-side is installed right side up. To do this, check to see that the slightly rounded rail with the decorative groove is installed at the top and the plain rail is on the bottom. Next, consumers should make sure the drop-side is securely attached to the tracks in all four corners.

How do the side rails of a eddie bauer play yard stay up?


I have this the Eddie Bauer Pack & Play too. The directions says it doesn't matter which sides you pull up first but it does... you have to first pull up the 2 short sides, then you can pull up the long sides and push the button on the bottom to get the whole thing secure.

Hope this helps!

Kinderkraft crib model 710


On the bottom of the front rail that drops (the drop rail), there are two plastic tension pieces (one at either end) that engage the two fixed, bottom rail slider hardware (the long, narrow pieces screwed top-and-bottom into the lower, inside portion of the tall, upright crib ends). These tension pieces are spring loaded, and the outer edge of each one rides along the outside (i.e., the parent's side) of the two bottom metal rail guides. Their purpose is to supply outward pressure against the lower part of the drop rail - that's what you push against when you press your lower leg upon the bottom of the drop side of the crib to lower it. They insure that when up, the drop side locks safely into place. I suspect these tension pieces are your problem. It sounds like they are improperly installed. Good luck.

Side rail


honest answer: take super heavy duty zip ties and tie the drop side in place in like 8 places to be sure it will stay put.

i did it with my crib to be safe when simplicity recalled theirs for rail issues, i would start with trying to get a hold of a person st simplicity for children your crib may be one of the ones recalled for rail failure issues then they would send you parts free

they should also be able to help you find out if the crib is theirs or not too

you should under the crib for a sticker with numbers, usually the model number / serial number and date of manufacture if you come up with a model number type it into a search engine online if manufacture name not on that label to find out who makes it, then contact them for pieces

hope that helped
