Key Information

Notice Type:Canceled Notice

Notice Expiration Date:06/19/2017
The Cribs for Kids® "Pack N' Play" cribs are a proprietary design with a unique model number convention that is not available in the retail market. The unique model numbering convention on the cribs prevents anyone from successfully returning a crib to a retail store for cash or exchange for goods. Additionally, the unique upholstery fabric that Graco® uses in the manufacture of these cribs makes them easily identifiable even if the model number is compromised.

The Cribs for Kids® program is unique in that it is specifically designed to meet the needs of child welfare organizations that require large quantities with short lead times for delivery.
