This crib is well made, with quality hardware and very nice fit. I've seen cribs for twice the money that are of comparable quality. I do think it is made of pine, rather than a hardwood so it will ding somewhat more easily than, say, oak. But, you're not going to be playing basketball on it, so that should be fine. Assembly is very straightforward but as mentioned by others, some bolts are provided with exactly the number needed so try not to lose anything during assembly. There is a nice pouch under the base to hide the instructions for later use. It is made in Taiwan, not mainland China, in case that matters to you.
Some reviews made me concerned that it was, in fact, painted rather than stained. I can assure you that it is stained and the grain shows through nicely even with the espresso finish.
The base crib comes with all that you need to convert it to a toddler bed. You'll need to find some space to store the extra pieces for a few years. I also decided to get the conversion pieces to make it into a full bed. I do recommend that you do this. Who knows where this manufacturer will be when you decide to convert it.
From other reviews, it sounds like the dressers and other pieces that match the crib are (1) not manufactured by the same company (2) of inferior quality. I decided to stay away from that stuff. The good news is that the toddler bed conversion has a couple of small pieces of finished wood you can take with you furniture shopping locally if you like to match the espresso finish.

Solid, GREENGUARD certified, safe place for baby
We've been using this crib since June and we haven't had any issues with it. I was mainly looking for a crib that is GREENGUARD certified because I don't like the idea of a bunch of toxic chemicals leeching into our home, especially where my baby sleeps. Assembly was pretty straightforward and simple. I managed to assemble it by myself while 9 months pregnant and had no problems. We still have some time before we'll be using this as a toddler bed but I imagine that making that switch is fairly easy as well. It's a nice, solid piece of furniture and I'm glad that it will transition to different stages along with my baby.

No crib is perfect
The color is faded a little, overall I think that itâ€™s beautiful. It wasnâ€™t very easy to assemble partially because this company is terrible with the instructions provided. We havenâ€™t put the baby in it yet, but it looks like it should hold together well.

The crib went together easily. The instructions were simple and straight forward
The crib went together easily. The instructions were simple and straight forward. After assembly, the crib was very stable and I have no doubt it will hold up well.

Great Crib, Great Price!
We bought 2 of these cribs for the twins that we are about ready to have. They came in so fast compared to the furniture we ordered for my daughter 5 years ago. We did have to put it together, but it was very easy. The construction is solid pine wood and to me nice quality. The color is Fantastic!! I was hopeing that since we had to order 2 beds that the color would be consistant, and it was!! They were even made a few months apart. We also ordered the dressers in the Espresso color and they match perfectly as well. Overall, for the price, it's great quality and looks great!

Finish is lighter than in the photo but it is still lovely in my son's nursery.

Did a lot of shopping around for a baby furniture set. Ordered this for the value and design. Was a little hesitant to order unassembled furniture through AlumiGogo, but I'll tell you they exceeded my expectations. Not only was the furniture well packed for shipping...... I was really impressed by the real wood quality and ease of assembly! I ordered the crib, dresser and changing table to make the set. This is defiantly higher quality furniture and with my help, very well put together;)

More than I expected!!!
I was worried about the quality of this product just because of the price but it exceeded all expectations I had! Very sturdy and easy to put together. I put it together myself just a week short of my due date! I love the look and feel that this crib has! I am more than happy with my purchase! I highly recommend it!

Easy to put together and a very solid crib
I was thoroughly surprised at the quality of this crib for the price. As others say, the wood is a little easy to ding and mark, but the overall solid build makes up for this small flaw. It only took me an hour to put together and the directions were easy to follow.
