1. This oddly transparent crib called the Bubble Baby Bed
was designed by Lana Agiyan. It's designed to rock in a
circle, like a top, without tipping over, and return to
center thanks to a weighted bottom. It looks like you're
raising a space baby, and maybe you are (lay a trail of
Reeces Pieces to find out for sure). The clear plexiglass
is easy to clean (which is good because it's going to get
way more fingerprints and dirt on it than, say, a regular
wooden crib) and the crib can be used as a toy storage
container when the child outgrows it. Or you could just
use it to hold the world's largest bar of soap because it
looks like a soap dish.

3. Check out this uber-cool crib by Australian company
ubabub. Eco-friendly, safe, and modern, the hippest of
babies could slumber well in one of these. Called the
"pod," this crib can even convert to a toddler bed when
your baby is ready for that. The only downside is they're
pricey (about $1,900) and only currently available in
Australia. They're planning to expand to other countries
4. At Nurseryworks, unique cribs are the rule, not the
exception. The brand new, limited edition Vetro crib is
made entirely of recyclable clear acrylic (which is why
it's hard to see here), with three adjustable mattress
heights and a fixed side rail. It's ridiculously
pricey--$3500--but it also converts to a toddler bed, so
the Hollywood moms can justify it. Plus it'll look like
your baby's sleeping on a puff of air. Heh.
5. What little princess wouldn't want to lay her head down
in this spectacular crib that includes what appears to be
storage and a changing table? I like the blocks on the
wall, too, which might be clever cabinets to store baby
books and toys, or simply delightful decor.
6. Reuse that outgrown crib by turning it into a desk
for the kids! From A Little Learning for Two.
7. Chinese artist Shi Jinsong created sculptures depicting
baby accessories which would fit right in as toys for the
Addams Family or for a future Terminator baby. The Na Zha
Baby Boutique exhibition included this Sadist's Cradle
that is perfect for a child with supernatural powers.
Deadly sharp blades and gleaming stainless steel offer
lethal luxury in this outrageously unsafe line of baby
8. I don't have much information about this crib, except
if there is a King Crib, this is it!
9. Natural pine crib, by Mario Ceroli for Poltronova,
10. Dutch BeanEasy's Dream crib ($1,540) is designed to
maximize airflow while saving mama's back by positioning
the mattress at an easy-to-reach height. Available in nine
colors, the collection also includes a bean-like changing
table and armoire.
