Most if not all of the simplicity brand cribs have been recalled reguardless of whether they had wood or metal mattress supports.
There were 2 different recalls on the wood version but both were recalled for the drop-side issues.
This link specifically includes the Aspen 3 in 1 cribs and model #: 8740
We took ours to our local walmart last summer (we purchased it in a different state almost 8 years ago). I brought to cpsc report with me. They had not issue with the recalled information we has matching it to our crib. It did take the clerk a bit to find our crib in their system because it was older, but once she did we recieved a full refund, without a receipt.
As far as changing them to a toddler bed. When we converted ours to a toddler bed we simply removed the drop-side from the crib. The drop-side parts can be unscrewed from the side rails. Then we screwed the toddler rails to the bottom of the crib. Ours had screw holds for the toddler rails on the mattress support. If you do not have the holes for it, then you may have put the mattress support on backwards ie with the side that has the holes for the toddler bed rails on the backside of the crib.
I, too, bought this crib and it had no instructions. After a lot of hassle with 2 companies (because the manufacturer is actually LaJobi) and wasted time on gracobaby.com (which offers no solutions), I finally got a hold of someone at LaJobi and got the instructions emailed to me. For the convenience of everyone else in the world who share in this particular struggle with me, I have posted the instructions in an album on photobucket. I believe you can print them from there. To get to them, go to photobucket.com and in the website only search field (not the web search) type emilykenepp and change the search from images to people. It should bring up my profile and under albums I have an album called Graco Lauren Crib Assembly Instructions. Click on that and you're good to go! I hope this saves someone some angst. Also, if you have any further need, the number for LaJobi is 1-888-266-2848 and the number for Graco is 1-800-345-4109.
I have a Graco 3 in 1 Aspen Sleep System Model 8740 crib and the transitional bed instructions. I am missing the crib instructions. My crib was not recalled because it has a metal support and not wodden slats.
Also, you can call Simplicity Inc, who made this model with Graco at 1-800-858-8323. If your model is not recalled, I'm sure they can instruct you on obtaining a manual and parts needed! Good luck!! :)
