    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

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 [email protected] 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!
