Most if not all of the simplicity brand drop-side cribs have been recalled, including the Graco 8740.

Here is the CPSP link regarding this crib:
http://www.cpsc.gov/CPSCPUB/PREREL/prhtml09/09260list.html
http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml07/07307.html

According to the CPSP information the company appears to be out of business to some degree and are not providing repair kits.

If you know where you purchased the crib, check to see what their policy is regarding recalled baby products.

We had purchased ours at walmart almost 8 years ago and were able to return it to another store in a different state for a full refund last summer. They did not need a reciept received, they just needed the manufacturer label on the part that the mattress lies on.

Because ours was older, the customer service clerk did have to work hard to find the crib in their system, but once she did, it was not problem at all.

Toddler conversion on at least some of the cribs is simply to remove the front dropside from the crib (you may want or need to unscrew the dropside tracks to remove the actual side) Then screw the toddler rails to the front side of the crib. There should be pre-drilled holes for the toddler rails, if there are not then you may have the mattress support on backwards.

DOes this convert to a full size bed? Does it need a full size mattress when that is done?? Or do they convert to a twin bed?


It says in the description that it is 4-in-1 sleep system. It can be converted into a traditional bed, a day bed and a full-sized bed. It does need a full size mattress once you convert it.

Also, the bed is made to convert to a headboard for a full size bed and so it may be a little bit wide to work with a twin sized bed.

The directions are on the platform that supports the matttress I believe it's number 7 on how to convert to a full size. You have to buy a frame for a full size bed and of course the mattress and box spring. I hope this helps
