I need a conversion kit for a 6200 series crib in espresso or chocolate, to convert to a double bed, and I cannot find one because they have gone out of business! Any suggestions, or does anyone know where I can get one?
I also had the same problem of finding the conversion kit for 5000 series crib in chocolate. I have been trying everywhere and finally I came across this baby furniture store in San Diego. I contacted them, drove up to San Diego from Orange County and got my conversion kit last weekend. You guys might want to give it a try. Contact Mory at Children's Land, http://www.childrensland.net/ tel:858-689-9998. They have conversion for many types of morigeau lepine's cribs.
Please let your public know- Children'sLand in San Diego is still making and shipping both toddler and adult conversion kits for all Morigeau cribs that can be converted-any color or model. Please call Mory at 858-566-6247. Thanks, Jill
I posted a solution before I signed up so I don't know if it actually posted.
I'm making a conversion kit for a client who has the same problem. I can make the kit for any of these cribs, but I'm going to need the head and foot board to mortise in the frame rail hardware. I'll also need to match the species of wood, factory stain, color or finish. I'd be happy to discuss shipping and price. Thanks, rhino23.
Thanks for the tel. just called the man and he told me that for the 2000 serie crib with a cut off on the head board there is no conversion kit. this is just a head board, so you can get a boxspring, matress and bed frame and drill in the back and attach it. that's simple. I am so glad I was able to get that info. good luck but wanted to mention to any of the other parents who has the same problem.
Try this man in Philly 215-469-0029. I called for the toddler bed conversion kit which he didn't have but he did have some full ones in stock. If you know anyone who has the toddler one please let me know.

I can't offer the exact answer, but hopefully my suggestions will be helpful...
Converting the crib to a full-size bed should actually be a fairly simple process of detaching the 4 sides that make the crib, and replacing the 2 short sides with the full-size bed rails that were sold separately in a conversion kit. The 2 long sides of the crib become the headboard and footboard of the full-size bed.
Unfortunately, it's only a simple process if you already have the full-size conversion kit bed rails. And since Morigeau-Lepine went out of business, they aren't making any more conversion kits. If you don't have the full-size bed rails, then this could be quite difficult.
It's possible that some stores that used to sell Morigeau-Lepine cribs might still have a conversion kit hidden somewhere in the back of their stock room or warehouse. You could try calling around to a few of your local stores to ask if they would check for you. It's a long shot, but it doesn't hurt to ask.
If you have the rails, or are lucky enough to find them, then it should be as simple as locating the screws that hold the crib sides together, removing them (most likely with an appropriatly sized hex-key,) and putting the screws back through the headboard and footboard into the bed rails. (I'm really just assuming that it works the same as the Babi Italia conversion.) If no screws are visible, or if removing them doesn't detach the crib sides, then they are probably also held together with locking bed rail fasteners. To release the fasteners, remove any visible screws, then push upwards on the short side rail while pushing down on the long side rail. You might have to tap the rail up with a rubber mallot to get it moving.
If you don't have the full-size bed rails, and you can't find them anywhere, your only option may be to build them yourself, or find a woodworker to build them for you. Search online for "Bed Rail Fasteners" and you'll see several options for hardware, but they might require modifying the headboard and footboard as well. Full-size matresses are 75 inches long, so you'll want the length of your rails to accomodate (ours are 77 inches long.)
Hello. Sadly the company went out of business. They made a conversion kit that was necessary to do what you want to do. IT is possible that you may be able to still get one. Try giving Childen's Land in San Diego, CA a call. I contacted Mory at 858-689-9998. He is very nice and very familiar with various series of Morigeau Lepine cribs. I got my conversion kit to convert to a full sized bed last weekend. http://www.childrensland.net/ hope this helps!
I called the store in pittsburgh where we bought our crib (Babyland) - since Morigeau is out of business, they said i can either get some kind of generic metal frame adapter at any hardware store, or there is a store in chicago www.lazarsfurniture.com - they told me that the store will do wooden adapters to match the colors of the original crib. I contacted the store by email and they said they "no longer have any inventory for Morigeau", but I'm going to call them to talk with a person and see what they can do.
we are sooooo kicking ourselves for not having purchased the conversion kit when we got the crib itself. oh well...
