    yep it is recalled and the company went under so no refund or replacement on anything from simplicity for kids products

  • savingbaby Apr 05, 2009

    I need instructions, too.
    SOME of these were recalled, not all. The cribs w/wooden mattress supports were recalled, but not the ones w/metal mattress supports (which is what I have.)

I have the instructions and the customer service number. The customer service number is 1-800-858-8323. Do you know the model 8740 was recalled? Check with customer service when you call.

Hope I helped.

Are there different types of toddler beds or a standard type in different styles?

There are quite a few varying types of toddler beds in the market. The first kind I will mention is a convertible crib. The great thing about a convertible crib is that it will last much longer. Some parents also find that a convertible crib eases the transition phase. Next there is the "captain bed" also known as a storage bed. This bed has built-in compartments everywhere - under the bed frame, in the footboards, even in the headboards. There are other types of toddler beds such as loft toddler beds, futon toddler beds, and platform toddler beds; however I think they are less popular and ultimately less safe for your toddler.

Jardine Model # DA715BC toddler bed assembly instructions

I have the same crib for my daughter when I went to change it I called the company bc I couldn't find the toddler rails that matched the crib.. They said that it doesn't convert into a toddler bed, just a day bed, and a full-sized bed.. I said NO it's a four in one.. their reply.." yes, a crib, a day bed, a full size bed with foot board, and a full sized without the foot board." I laughed and told them what a joke that was.. So my husband and I took the front off the bed to make it the daybed and went to walmart and bought a toddler bar for like 20 dollars in the baby department. She loves it and it worked for us without having to spend another 150 dollars for a cheap toddler bed.. good luck.. btw this crib has been recalled.. you might want to check it out

Storkcraft baby "deborah" crib

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

I have this exact bed and just today I converted mine to a toddler bed.  I was scrambling for instructions until I realized they were permanently affixed to the mattress slats. (LOL)  I would be glad to help you out if you still need some help.  email me at and I can email you a scanned copy of the page you need.  There is only 1 page of instruction for baby into toddler.  I'll be looking for your email!
