Weigh in on the Quick Change Crib
Quick Change Crib by Innovative Crib Designs solves the age-old problem of difficult-to-change crib mattresses.
The Big Idea behind the crib is a door on its end that allows you to slide the mattress out to change its sheet. Everything else stays â€“ crib toys attached to the rails, baby mobile, sound player, crib bumper and so on. And, of course, you don’t have to bend down into the crib to wrestle the mattress out.
My daughter didn’t sleep in a crib, so I’d like you to weigh in with your perspective. Is this a great invention, or is traditional mattress changing not a big deal?
The company’s web site features an explanatory video that plays more like an infomercial, complete with a mother who seems incapable of extracting her traditional mattress from her traditional crib. It may be a great product, but they have a lot to learn about persuasion.
The Quick Change Crib averages a retail price of $590 in Google Product results. Considering what you paid for your own crib, is the price difference worth it to you? If price was taken out of the equation, would you be excited about a crib with a slide-out mattress?
