The first time I saw the Bloom Alma Crib, I was ushered inside a curtained room at the ABC show in Las Vegas by Simon May, the owner of Bloom. He promised to show me something that would amaze me – and he did. Although it was barely more than a prototype, the Alma crib was impressive. Here was a crib that offered all the depth and sturdiness of a full-size crib in half the space, plus it had an ingenious folding design that made it go completely flat for storage. Basically, I told him, it’s a grandparent’s dream.
When the Alma launched last summer it did not disappoint. Parents and grandparents immediately understood the benefit of having a portable crib that was substantial yet compact. The Alma’s good looks were another point in its favor, especially in design-conscious households. To seal the deal, Bloom was smart to incorporate organic and natural materials into the bedding and mattress. The Alma is certainly not the most cost-effective travel crib out there, but it is the nicest and, in many ways, the most versatile.
The small size of the Alma Crib makes it a tight squeeze for babies over the age of 2. But up until then, you’re likely to get plenty of use out of this.
