noninoni kids was founded by Carina, a mom and award-wining architect, and her father, Ruben, also an architect and a custom furniture maker. The products are designed and made in their shop in the Tucson, AZ. Each piece is made to order and can be customized.
When my son was born, I was surprised at how difficult it was to find a crib that was made in the USA, made out of sustainable materials with non-toxic finishes, at a reasonable price point. I was also alarmed when my husband put our crib together and there were 6 bolts left over! I couldn't find a better alternative, so I consulted my dad for help.
As a grandfather of 6 children, I have had my share of babies and toddlers sleeping in my house. When Carina approached me about this gap in the market, I wanted to make sure that the crib was easily assembled and disassembled so that grandparents/caretakers could easily put the crib together when needed and quickly disassemble for flat storage. With the mini and full-size option, a baby can maintain consistency between sleeping in their home and in their grandparent's home.
