Ragazzi crib to full bed

I have the crib that converts to a full size bed.  I purchased the kit when I bought the crib in 2004 (which just includes the two wooden side rails).  Now, we are trying to figure out how we get the two side pieces to join together to make the footboard...none of the hardware that came with the crib seems to fit the two pieces together...ahhhh!  The company that bought Ragazzi doesn't have any instructions for the older models and the store that we purchased the crib went out of business....

SOURCE: Finding full sz bed rails 4 my Simplicity Ellis Convertible Crib

i think i have a solution to your problem. I too have been looking for simplicity bed rails but in honey to convert to a full. I found sears.ca and they carry the rails in every color but there version of the ellis crib is called the sydney 4 in 1. It is the same exact crib so I am purchasing the rails myself. If they do not end up fitting then just send them back. Sometimes canada have the same things as us but they are named different I know I live 15 min away from the canadian border. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Instruction manual for Graco - Sarah 4-in-1 Convertible Crib, Che

My wife and I bought this same crib. We thought the same as well. We looked everywhere for the instructions- so we thought. We finally found someone to call and ask for help and she told us to

" Look in the box that has the mattress springs in them. The instructions are normally attached to them."

As I was on the phone with the lady helping us, I opened the spring box and there they were attached to it inside a white envelope.

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!

I know its been a while but if you're still looking for the toddler rail or even the full size bed rails call Lajobi (the manufacturer) at 888-266-2848 or email them at info@lajobi.com. I bought this same crib in 2006 at Baby Depot and I ordered the toddler bed rail through them in 2009 for around $60. Now I'm ready for the full size bed rails but the crib has been discontinued. The manufactuer has a compatible bed rail in the same tea stain for $149 plus shipping.

I bought a graco baby bed in 2004 and i lost the


The Aspen 8470 along with millions of other cribs has been recelled dur to issues with the drop-sides.

Here is the CPSP link reguarding this crib:
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 reguarding 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 crip in their system, but once she did, it was not problem at all.

I purchased a Ragazzi crib model 211c 7 years ago and need to convert it to a toddler bed what kit(s)can I purchase?


I purchased a generic side rail from a baby website--it just is supported under the mattress and then covers half of the front of the crib where you take off the drop side---and that worked good---now I am trying to convert mine to a regular bed--UGH!

Instructions To Convert Jardine Madison Life Time Crib


To convert your crib to a Full Size bed you will need to purchase a set of full size bed rails (hook style for headboard and foot board). You can find this at any discount mattress store, or furniture outlet, it can range in price from $39.99 - $99.99. To install the rails you will see slots with bars on the headboard/footboard, this is where the hooks on the rails slide into. There are no bolts used to secure the rails to the headboard/footboard.

Jardine enterprises does not make a wood rail kit as was shown in some of the earlier ads for the Madison line of convertible cribs, and do not waste your time ordering the rail kit from Babies-R-Us as it is simply a metal rail kit (which you may be able to get cheaper at a local furniture/mattress store).

Use the lower daybed rail between the two front posts for the foot board. Another option for the full-size conversion is to purchase the metal rails (hook style) for a headboard only and not even bother with a foot board.

If you are still unsure of what you need to do for the full-size conversion please feel free to email me at gistecknician@aol.com.
