Cost:

Cribs range from $79.99 to over $4,000.00

Return Policy:

30-day policy with a 15% restocking fee for larger items.

ABaby first launched its online presence in 1998. Since then, they have established themselves as one of the few online retailers who can provide custom baby furniture. They boast an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and offer a "safe shop guarantee" on their products.

We were particularly impressed with the wide range of style and material choices. Here are some of the many types of cribs customers can choose from:

  • Classic
  • Iron
  • Modern
  • Designer
  • Convertible
  • Portable
  • Round
  • Spindle
  • Panel

For more information regarding any specific crib, simply click on the item's picture and you will find out the price, shipping surcharge, and other product details. You can also read customer reviews about the item. If you aren't sure what you want, this search feature allows you to consider all aspects of any item before making a purchase.

We are big fans of the "how to" articles. In addition to a helpful search engine, this site also provides tips on "[how] to select a crib," which is an article reviewing latest crib trends. You can also learn more about nursery design tips and current federal safety guidelines.

Regarding customer service, you can contact ABaby via phone, fax, email, or through regular mail. However, we did find unflattering reviews on other sites. Most the customers complained that they waited an unreasonable amount of time before finally receiving their order. We strongly recommend that you verify if an item is in stock and available for immediate shipment before making a purchase.

We found this site to be very user-friendly. Information is readily available, and we had no problem finding answers to any questions. If it weren't for the poor reviews on other sites, we would have given ABaby a higher rating. We hope they will work to improve their customer service and their overall reputation.

Albee Baby

ALBEE BABY Visit Site

Cost:

Crib prices range from $139.00 to over $1,000.00

Return Policy:

60-day policy with 30% restocking fee for all furniture items.

Albee Baby began after Alexander Weintraub decided to change his bicycle repair shop's focus to servicing baby carriages. Since 1933, Albee has focused on providing quality baby items to growing families. At the time of this review, they held an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.

The website is sleek and nicely organized. Albee offers the following styles of cribs:

  • Modern
  • Mini & Portable
  • Traditional
  • Combo
  • Institutional

New customers will have no problem navigating through the site to search for products. However, our main issue with Albee is their lack of inventory. For example, we were interested in learning more about Institutional cribs. Unfortunately, there is no information about this crib, which left us wondering why the company would post it on their site.

Moreover, there were quite a few items listed as "out of stock." Such limited selection might be off-putting to customers who might be searching for matching nursery furniture. We recommend calling them directly to find out about any item you might want to purchase.

As far as customer service goes, we found several reviews giving high marks, especially from consumers who visited Albee's physical store in New York (The store even wraps gifts for free). Reviews for online service is another story. We found a considerable amount of complaints from people who purchased items online. Many were unhappy with how representatives spoke to them and by how long it took to resolve issues.

If we were only reviewing the company, Albee would do very well. However, as we are reviewing their online presence, we have to give them lower marks. We hope they will work to improve their website inventory and online customer service.
