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: 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…

Young America furniture provides parents with confidence to choose our baby cribs and children’s beds. We know making the change from a crib to a “big boy” or “big girl” toddler bed is a very big day for a child. We understand how it’s a big deal for parents too. Children’s safety is a real concern. Young America, the American manufacturer of premium quality, safety certified children’s furniture, is the best source for safe baby cribs and toddler beds. We’re here to help parents breathe easily by providing the safest cribs, toddler beds and beds on the market; cribs that are Built to Grow™ and may be converted into the safest toddler beds - when the big day arrives.

Young America BTG products are designed, engineered and built for exceptional quality and safety. It’s the safest sleeping solution - and best value - for a growing family.
Here’s a glimpse of how BTG works:
Safety First - a checklist for parents
Young America furniture knows that when it comes to babies and kids, you can’t be too safe. Here are the safety guidelines we follow - and that you may want to keep in mind when you’re shopping for cribs, beds and other bedroom furniture for your child.
All Young America furniture features our exclusive SafeT3™ design — three levels of safeguards for product and environmental safety that have been certified by an independent expert. This means safety for your child.
1. Safety engineered
Young America furniture developed its own system of safety features that surpass even the most stringent mandatory or voluntary product safety guidelines.
2. Safety built
Safety begins at home. Young America furniture is made in our Robbinsville, North Carolina factory, which gives us an unparalleled level of quality control when it comes to building in safety.
3. Safety certified
Our superior level of safety standards meet or exceed those set by the Consumer Product Safety Commission and JPMA and ASTM.
Additional Safety Certification
In addition to our exclusive SafeT3™ design we’ve gone beyond to work voluntarily with two third party organizations: Intertek and the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute to ensure the safety of our furniture - specifically of our baby cribs. We believe a safe choice is a smart choice. Read more
