Most convertible cribs are made to function as a standards crib, a toddler bed and a FULL size bed headboard.
If you have access to the specific model number you can go to the following link and download the user manual for the specific crib you have. The manual should explain the conversion options for the bed.
The list for user manuals is after the user information form. You do NOT need to fill our the contact form to get a user manual if your model is in the drop down list.
Per the companies website (storkcraft.com) it doesn't look like the Ariel is a 3 in 1 but a 2 in 1. The manual is here http://www.storkcraft.com/docs/all/04588-43.pdf and it mentions converting to a twin bed, but not to a toddler bed.
Possibly put the mattress all the way down and remove the smaller side rail for a 3 sided toddler bed. Make sure the frame is sturdy enough without the 4th side.
I understand your frustration as I have put many children's toys, cribs etc. together over the years. It appears that the extra piece that you will need will be a twin bed frame. It is not included.
You take the side that goes up and down off and put the extra rail that came with it in its place. You must have the bolts that use the allen wrench to put in its place though. There are 2 of them and look just like the other ones holding the four sides together. Just did mine today.
i believe that the crib is one of the few that can not be, but I would definitely think about a twin bed since he is two and skip the toddler bed since both my kids were in their toddler beds for less then a year save your self the hassle and money get a twin bed, and for now just put the top mattress on and store the box springs (or merely wait to buy them until needed)
