Stork Craft Portofino 4-in-1 Fixed Side Convertible Crib and Changer Review
The Stork Craft Portofino 4-in-1 is designed to last and last and see your child through four stages of life. It converts from a crib to a toddler bed to a daybed to a full-size bed for your teen. Unfortunately, the toddler and day bed do not have the bed rails included. The crib retails at $305.39 from Amazon so is a middle of the range bed and worth the money if only the problem of the odour could be resolved. As stated previously this will probably fade with time.
About Stork Craft Portofino 4-in-1 Convertible Crib :
The bed weighs 125lb and the dimensions are 75 x 32.5 x 43 inches. It has an adjustable 3 position mattress support to keep the mattress firmly in place. The instructions are well written and there should be no problems assembling your crib. It is advised you take your time and build the crib carefully as it is a beautiful solid piece of furniture once built and set to last many years.
Attached to the crib is a drawer and cupboard unit with the free waterproof vinyl pad that is used for a changing station. As your child grows and the bed is converted, this can be used as a nightstand.
Customers were pleased with the appearance of the Stork Craft Portofino 4-in-1 bed saying it was lovely and well crafted. It is also very tough and sturdy and does not mark easily, but several customers complained of a strong smell of wood stain that takes months to wear away. One lady said the smell was acrid and burnt her eyes, another that she had aired it for two months but could still detect the odour.
Yeah It Comes with a Nightstand
Stork Craft Portofino 4-in-1 is a well-crafted piece of furniture, well designed and attractive looking. It will withstand tots jumping on it as well as a parent resting on it. The nightstand or changing stand is an added bonus and will save your back when changing the baby and also save you dollars if you were to buy one separately it would be an extra expense. The same with the night stand, getting one to match the wood and style of the bed would be difficult, but here it is all built in.
- Does your child 4 stages life
- Quality item, strong materials
- Night stand/ changing station with free vinyl pad
- 3 position mattress base for strong support

Bottom line :
The Storkcraft Portafino 4 in 1 bed, is beautifully crafted and strong enough to withstand the rigours of a lively child’s life. Take your time to assemble it and you have a strong and sturdy crib or bed which will last decades. It does have a strong smell which presumably will fade with time. A drawback would be getting your toddler used to sleeping in a little bed without the safety of the bed rails, but with a little practice, this should be alright as your tot gets used to the bed.
