SOURCE: convert our Morigeau Lepine Crib to a toddler Bed?

Yikes, I stumbled upon this trying to figure out where the Morigeau website went. I bought my bed rails when I got the crib because I was worried the stain would age differently and not match. Lucky. I can't believe they are out of business... they had the best baby furniture imo, and I really wanted to buy an extra chest to go with my set.
I think you could just buy regular bed rails and screw it into the wood, BUT I bet the height won't be right for your drawer to work anymore if yours had a crib drawer.

We have a Morigeau-Lepine convertable crib-day bed-full size bed, but we are missing the instructions to convert it to the full-size. It's model number is DA722-BC & the model is somewhere between...


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.)

I hope I've been helpful. Good luck!

My son has a series 8800 Morigeau Lepine crib in natural - as well as the tall dresser and changing table/short dresser. I would like to find him a trundle bed or bunk bed to go with the bureaus. Possibly...


We have bunkbeds Morigeau - 8869 - beds can exist as separate twins or bunkbeds. Color is light - don't know if it's natural or not. We have the ladder etc. He's 14 so needs a larger bed. But we're in Massachusetts.

Morigeau Lepine 9000 Collection conversion kits


Call Lazar's in Chicago. 847-679-6146. They may not be able to provide the conversion kit to people outside the chicago area, but they may be able to fax you instructions on how to do it yourself.

We wld like to convert the morigeau 1900 to a toddler bed. is it as simple as removing the front-facing piece?


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!

PS please rate my answer. Thank you, Joe

Convet morigeau lepine crib to a toddler bed


Use the allen wrench that came with the crib to slightly loosen the two bolts on the moveable gate side (bottom) then shimmy the sliding gate out of the tracks. I did it myself with verbal directions from the store - should be easy.

Convert our Morigeau Lepine Crib to a toddler Bed?


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...

Need a piece of hardware (cam) for the Morigeau-Lepine crib.


We needed a cam, too and contacted the company that makes them in Mexico. Look on the cam and there is the company name, I think it's Indaux or something similar. Google them and you'll find their site and examples of the cam you need. Email them and let them know which one you need and they should be willing to sell you one for not that much. Good luck!
