“Coolest Cribs for Modern Tots” 2011 Cribsie Finalists

This weekend we’re going to take an in-depth look at a few of the Cribsie Awards that are close to my heart.

First, in the Nursery category (of course!), is “Coolest Cribs for Modern Tots.”  This was a tough one for me to pick as all the choices are really excellent.  The finalists in the category have all been listed on buymoderncribs for a long time.  So long in fact, that they’ve never been properly discussed here in the blog.  So, without further delay, let us introduce this year’s finalists.

First on the list is Oeuf.  You may or may not know that our own crib is a Classic Oeuf, which I ordered before they were even in stores back in 2005.  We’ve been happy with our Oeuf ever since and are using it right now for baby #2. Over the past 6 years, the Classic Crib has been joined by the Sparrow and Robin.  All are beautiful, eco-friendly, sturdy and safe.

Second up is Stokke.  Their Sleepi crib system is a now classic oval design that converts from bassinet to crib and then to a toddler bed and then junior bed.  It’s the ultimate in convertibility.

Bloom’s beautiful Alma Mini, Alma Papa and Luxo cribs have the added feature of being able to fold up for storage.  They are gorgeous enough for full time daily use, but they also make great temporary or short-term options.  How cool would it be if your hotel brought up an Alma crib for your little one?!

Spot on Square has an beautiful collection of cribs that are all made in the US.  I have yet to see one of these in person, but the designs are so amazing, I’m sure I’d go for it regardless.  From left to right the models are Eicho, Hiya and Roh.

Muu’s Sam and Ray cribs are clean and simple cribs to begin with, but they can be customized in dozens of ways.  The unique MuuPanel system adds a panel with the design of your choice to either style crib.

ducduc is the old man on the block, but they’ve got unparalled reputation, variety of incredible styles and tons of customization options.  Be aware, you’re going to pay big $$ for this level of awesome.

So, tell us… which are you going to vote for?
