Built To Grow is a Smart Crib Choice
There are parents and then there are smart parents. Smart parents know a good thing when they discover Young America Built To Grow Cribs. Smug and smiling, suddenly-smart parents are thrilled with (and relieved by) the knowledge that their crib purchase will last through the many ages and stages of their baby’s childhood.
Yes, a Built To Grow Encore Crib readily converts into a toddler, school age, then full sized bed (see a good visual below). How you may ask? We have the right conversion kit when the exciting (and sometimes nerve-wracking) moment comes to move to your child into the “big boy” or “big girl” bed.
Peruse our full crib and nursery furniture selection and call or visit a Young America Signature Shop if you’d like to become a smart parent. We highly recommend it - it’s fun being smart.

Mother’s Day idea: PLEASE Make Your Bed
Brush your hair, brush your teeth, and PLEASE make your bed. Daily reminders by you-know-who: Mom. You hear those words every single day. Up the stairs, down the hall and over a bowl of cereal. Geez. You roll your eyes and give a sigh. I’m 11 years old and I know how to do it. Truly I can - just not right now.
Well here’s your chance to prove it - a golden opportunity. It’s almost Mother’s Day. If you want to do something she’ll truly appreciate, then here’s a simple idea for you. Show your mother how her gentle prodding, repeated requests, ardent appeals, and predictable pleas have not been in vain. Show her she is being heard by you - even acknowledged. Try it on her special day.
Grab the hair and tooth brushes. Pull yourself together nice and neat. It’s not for you - it’s for your mother. The person who loves and cares enough to remind her daughter each (and every) day. It may sound sappy, but mom will be delighted and full of pride. You’ll make her very happy - and PLEASE make your bed.

Mother’s Day idea: Put it All Away
Toys, blocks and dirty socks. What can you, young child (tween or teenager alike), do for your mother on her special day? Flowers, crafts and sweet treats are, well, OK. But if you want an even grander idea: Put it All Away. Dad can help and siblings too. Stuff it here, tuck it in there. Socks to the hamper. Hang it high (if you can reach) or line it up low. Try a shelf (yep, that’s what they’re for) or close the books and puzzles in a bottom drawer. Find a place, an out-of-the-way space to Put it All Away.
There’s no “right” way as it turns out - it’s your effort that counts. What will your mother say when you tell her it was you who Put it All Away? What will she do when she sees your good work? She’ll gasp, sweep you off your feet and plant a big juicy kiss on your cheek. What could be better than making your mother happy (ecstatic!) on her very special day.
Here are a few suggestions for this seemingly daunting task…

Fox 8 WGHP News: Young America makes Safe Furniture for Children
Young America of Stanley Furniture is at High Point Market this week, an annual home furnishings show in High Point, North Carolina. Young America is receiving some great attention from the local media, including this clip from the Fox 8 WGHP - Greensboro, High Point, Winston-Salem News - about children’s furniture safety issues and how Young America furniture meets or exceeds industry safety standards with tip-proof case goods and soft-close drawers. For more details, Watch video online.
What kind of Closer are you?
Young America announces the debut of our upgraded drawer system, the Quadro self-closing slide from Hettich, that enhances both the function and safety of our children’s furniture. Best of all, it’s QUIET. No more noisy slamming, bamming, house-shaking, neighborhood-quaking drawer closures.
Details, Interesting Details:
What’s Quadro? Nope, not a car or computer. It’s something better. Quadro is premium quality hardware from Hettich - an under-mount, ball bearing design that facilitates the smoothest, most even open/close possible, and its steel ball bearings are crafted to withstand years of heavy use. Many premium brands, including Sub-Zero and Viking, rely on Quadro technology to provide the optimum performance. Sound impressive? We think so too.
What’s so great about the new Young America drawer system? Featuring a 4-piece solid wood drawer box made of sustainably harvested North American hardwood with English dovetails in all four corners, our drawer system reflects a standard of American craftsmanship that is hard to find today. Young America’s upgraded drawer design includes a state-of-the-art drawer slide with Silent System technology. This unique combination of superior materials, construction and advanced engineering helps reinforce Young America’s reputation for producing safe, high-quality furniture parents can trust.
Why will parents LOVE our new drawer system? Safety. The Silent System is a soft-close function that catches a drawer, then gently and quietly pulls it shut. Silent System technology makes it virtually impossible for a drawer to slam closed, protecting little fingers from being pinched and helping to preserve peace and quiet in your home. For emphasis, peace and quiet.
One more drawer Safety Feature to be excited about. The Quadro drawer slide includes a dynamic load capacity of up to 55 pounds as well as a maximum safety extension, which limits how far drawers can be pulled out to reduce the possibility of tip-over accidents. Each Young America furniture piece with the new system also includes an anti-tip kit to further protect against your adventurous child’s attempt to climb the furniture. As always, we have your child’s - and whole family’s - safety in mind.
Bottom line? It’s an open and shut case. You can safely and quietly close these new drawers any which way you or your child prefers, so be creative!
