The Growth-Oriented Crib Extends the Lifecycle of Kids' Furnishings

 - Nov 12, 2013
While it is wonderful to watch a child grow up, an inconvenient corollary is the constant need to update and replace things like clothing and furniture to keep up with your sprouting offspring. The Growth-Oriented Crib would be one less item about which you'd need to worry. It would count for a great deal as well, since a comfortable place to sleep is the top priority in a bedroom.

Ziv Zimmerman and Zhi Shang have developed a system of interlocking wooden combs that make up the base of two separate ends of the bed. When the two halves are pushed together, the Growth-Oriented Crib makes a compact cradle for a baby. Slide the headboard and the footboard apart as the youngster ages, and all you'll need is a bit of an extension to the cushioning atop the sturdy frame.
