DaVinci Jayden Convertible Crib is a different model from other DaVinci family kids like Kalani and Emily. Where the difference lies is design and other parts are same. All DaVinci cribs have four conversions, four mattress levels, made of New Zealand pine wood, non toxic finish. Jayden has all the same features as the other DaVinci cots, but also its own personality, the curved back headboard, curved sides and lower front rail.
Crib assembly is very simple and straightforward – lets be honest who wants to spend hours with a screwdriver and allen key? Most bolts provided are the exact number required so try not to lose anything during assembly! There is a nice looking pouch under the bed base to hide the instructions for later.
The crib is finished in a stained lacquer, with four separate colors available – White and Espresso are the most popular. It’s stained appearance displays the wood grain nicely even with the dark espresso finish.
Conversion into a toddler bed is possible via the crib base design. You’ll need to find additional space to store these extra pieces until required when your child is a few years old. Buying additional conversion accessory pieces is possible to make the cot into a full bed. I would recommend buying these extra pieces to save money in the future. Who knows if DaVinci will continue to stock the parts when you decide to convert the crib when your child is ready.
One thing to be careful of is DeVinci Jayden owners have reported that the dressers and drawers are not manufactured by the same company and of inferior quality compared to the crib.
Davinci’s Jayden is a high quality, sturdy crib – which offers great value for money at approx $220 with features usually only found in beds double its price.
