The Kalani is designed to grow with your baby. It transitions all the way into teenage years since it can convert into a toddler bed, a day bed, and eventually into a full-size bed. It comes with a conversion kit that has the extra pieces needed when you transform the crib to fit your child's age. This means you can save money since you don't need to purchase multiple beds along the way. See More
