Anyone bought/used one?
I stumbled across them online while on the hunt for a reasonably priced cot and am wondering if anyone's had any experience with them?

Cot from Fantastic Furniture?

I haven't though I have had a fantastic bookcase which was a piece of rubbish! I don't think the price is very good at all, try babies r us and keep your eyes out for their 50% off sales they have 2-3 times a year. Also check eBay, my friend got a Boori cot that had only been used for 1 child for $80.

Thanks. My hubby had a bedroom package from there before we met (over 5 years ago) and we haven't had any dramas with the bed or any of the chests of drawers/tallboy that were part of the package. I'm just not 100% sure about a cot. For the price, I like the look of it better than a lot of the other cots in the same sort of price range. Am still scouring Gumtree/Ebay almost daily but I only have a maximum of a few weeks to get an order in if we do decide our best option is to just spend the extra money on a more expensive/well known brand from one of the baby shops.

I've never bought a cot from them but bought enough furniture to furnish a house from them when I moved interstate. Biggest mistake and biggest waste of money! Everything started falling apart within months. It's all such cheap, horrible junk!

Definitely a great price considering it's convertible! All our furniture is from FF ATM, it's our starter furniture in our first home it's really a case of you get what you pay for, the cheap bookcases and coffee table we got had some problems staying together, but handy hubby has solved any issues with superglue and retightens nuts and bolts every few months. They usually have all their stock made up instore, so you may be able to pop in and see it up for yourself.

No experience with the FF cot, but for that price range you could also consider Ikea. They've got a few different cots for $249 and under.

It doesn't look nice IRL.
Target has a baby sale coming up, the childcare cot is usually marked down a fair bit.
