We bought this at a yard sale for our son because we are expecting. Turns out he is getting a new bed for Christmas from his grandparents. So we haven't used it. the bed part is plastic and white, and the frame is metal. It has a barrier to keep them from falling out. All and all a nice bed, doesn't come with mattress. If you want to knowmore, or if you want me to send a pic just email or call.
