These are great. After deciding our floor to ceiling bookshelves were not a viable option to store our boys' toys, I was on the hunt for quite some time to find something we could integrate into our family/living room that wouldn't look terrible with the adult décor. So glad I found these. I just ordered a second one as I am very happy with the first. The blue is not as bright as it looks on the website. It is really closer to a navy which I think goes much better with my living room furniture. The boys love to sort and put away their toys now as it makes it easy. It was really easy to assemble. It took me about 30 minutes with my 1 & 3 year old looming nearby. My only complaint is that it does seem easy to scratch the surface. It won't be that big of a deal now that I ordered a second to stack on top, but it would be great if the manufacturer could add a blue colored marker to do quick touchups. But I can probably just use one of my kiddos markers as well....so problem solved. I would say the quality is better than that of a local warehouse style store, but not quite as high end as PBK. Overall, I am very happy with this purchase and would recommend for toy storage.

Ordered this product to store toys, etc for our toddler. Has stood the test of time. The bins and drawers provide the space we needed to store items. The look is nice too, we have it in our main family room.

I bought 2 of these to stack and assign to family members so that shoes, backpacks, sports equipment, dance bags, etc. had a place to "live" besides all over the floor and doorway. Very sturdy construction and looks good too. One of the units did not ship with the needed hardware but it was easy to contact the company and the packet was promptly mailed out.

I ordered this along with the three bin storage cubbies as a solution for easy toy clean up and storage. It works out really well. I can get my 3 year old to participate more in clean up because of the easy openings. This was a great option for our family as the toy box never seemed to have enough space and we were buying extra containers and stacking those up around the living room. We do not have a play room and therefore have everything in the living room. In the espresso color, it blends nicely with the rest of our furniture and does not look like just toy storage. A great buy for the price. It is just compressed wood, but it was all that we needed. It is fastened to the wall per manufacturer suggestion for safety. Overall, we are very pleased with this product!

Looks great in my family room, and matches the furniture color scheme. I wanted something where my kid could organize his books and his cars collection in the family room. And this product is a great success. It is easy for him to use and display the items he needs. The chocolate brown color is simply great.

Great affordable option in comparison to high end version seen in catalogs. Very sturdy, heavy piece that looks good in our family room. Only complaint is in the stickers included to cover screw holes. The color doesn't match perfectly and my child has pulled a couple off. We will probably fill with wood putty and paint.

I love this storage bench! It looks really nice, and I am able to hide a lot of my daughter's toys in it. We have it in our family room, so it provides us extra storage and extra seating!

I really like this product to put in my family room to hold all of my baby's stuff - diapers, toys, etc. It looks contemporary and the dark wood and dark bins fit well in my decor. What I didn't realize was that the shelving unit is not one solid shelf that the bins sit on; it is more of a framework, and the bins fit in it. It still looks good, but just know that it's not a solid piece of furniture that can be used without the bins. Also, the bins are just made of cardboard, and I know I need to be careful when taking them in/out or the handle-part will quickly break. Perfect for our needs though!
