Exclusive to BRU, Eco-Chic Baby cribs will retail for $600-$700. Two collections (Clover and Dorchester) will debut in late October in two colors (slate and hickory), with more collections arriving in February.
Like Baby Appleseed, Eco-Chic Baby will tout a Greenguard Gold certification, where products are third-party tested to be low in chemical emissions.
Eco-Chic Baby represents good timing for Baby Appleseed, with the Munire bankruptcy sending stores and buyers scrambling for alternatives. But at $600 to $700, Eco-Chic will be at the top end of the cribs offered by Babies R Us.
We recommend Baby Appleseed in our book and will take a close look at Eco-Chic when it hist the stores. We like the fact that toddler rail is included (another $100 or so purchase with some cribs). And the order time is another plus: four weeks on average with six to 10 weeks for “secondary” finishes.
