Baby Crib Reviews

4 stars
Baby Earth

BABY EARTH Visit Site

Cost:

Prices for cribs range from $43.00 to just under $1,000.00

Return Policy:

Generous one-year policy for new and unused items.

James and Heather Bendle opened their business in 2003 with the goal of providing traditional and innovative baby items to families. The company was rebranded in 2008 as Baby Earth, with the physical store located in Austin, Texas. They boast an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. They are also a Google Trusted Store.

The website is very user-friendly and overall, easy to navigate. You can narrow your search by selecting what brand and type of crib you'd prefer. Once you click on a specific crib, the website navigates to a page with a larger photo of the item and more information. If you're searching for a great deal, then you might want to check out their "Hot Deals," where you will find all of Baby Earth's current discounted products.

The best aspect of Baby Earth is their customer service. Any order over $99.00 is eligible for free shipping. Thus, if you're purchasing a crib, you're more than likely not going to pay for the item to be delivered to your home. They do also offer same-day delivery for orders in the Austin, Texas area.

Overall, we were very impressed with how efficiently this company operates. However, we did find the look of the website to be a bit clunky. The items look crunched together. Our only suggestion to this company would be to streamline their homepage, perhaps using larger fonts and grouping their inventory into categories rather than posting small photos of every crib they have. Such changes would be easier on their shoppers' eyes.

On the strength of their impeccable service, we give Baby Earth high marks. We hope they will improve some of the elements of their website to provide a less overwhelming first impression.

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.
