Overall, this is a great product, especially for the price. The big surprise was that the color was not what I expected. The pictures showed a more cherry-red color, but the actual product is more of a brick red. There were a couple of small scratches on the pieces, not really noticeable but definitely expected in this kind of made-in-China-do-it-yourself furniture. They were fairly easy to put together. I assembled each unit in about 30-45 minutes by myself. I do really like this product. The bins are deeper than I had thought they would be and they really hold a lot of stuff. I purchased two of these to stack together (the stacking was easy and there are parts included to strap the units together if you want to stack them), and they make a really great storage space in my kids' play space (which also happens to be a corner of our living room). I especially like how the front of the bins are open but have the piece on front to hold things in. That means that we can effectively store more in each bin, the kids can see what goes in each bin, and since they can see everything most of the toys are actually getting more use. We used to rely just on a toy chest, but even with dividers and internal organization things just got lost in there. Just in the first week of having these new bins up, our clean-up routine became dramatically easier and my kids (ages 2 and 4) are playing a lot more independently because they can find things more easily. The bottom line: This is not high-end furniture, but it's sturdy, easy to assemble, and works great. We definitely recommend it.

I bought these for my daughter in law to use as storage cabinets for some of the kids toys. I bought 1 and she wanted 2 more. She was thrilled with them and they look good in both the playroom and her living room.

I was looking for something to help me organize my workstation around my chair in the living room. I saw this and loved the color. It was easy to put together and serve the purpose well.

Bought this for my sons cloths but don't think its big enough or strong enough to handle the job. its more like a small bench not strong enough to sit on u can put in the living room. The quality is too poor and the material used is too weak.

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!

I love this storage unit. I needed storage for my daughters toys and was considering purchasing a kids chest but then saw this storage unit. When we received it and put it together, it was the perfect size for her and matches our living room furniture perfectly. I love that it has seperate containers and that it is made of soft material. She is 1 year old and can go to the drawer with her books or the drawer with her toys and pull them out herself, easily. I would definitley recommend this unit to anyone who wants a small storage (but it actually fits alot in those little drarwers) and if you are trying to still have it look like a part of the furniture already in the room.

It is a great SMALL piece of furniture for us to fit a small nook. We are using it to help hide all of our childrens toys in our common living room area. I would not see it useful for a main piece of furniture as it is pretty short/small. Have an electric drill available to help put it together as doing it by hand would be too hard. Some pre-drilled holes were not done well and really needed the force of the electric drill. Looks nice overall for display.

The size is exactly what the dimensions said it was! Would have been nice to find one a bit bigger but this one looks great in my living room with all of my sons toys. the bins are nice, flimsy when you take the bottom out! My 3 year old knows where to put away his toys and now they are not in ugly totes. Putting it together didn't take long but...not all the holes were predrilled in the right places. The pieces were not labeled like they were in the instructions.

This is Perfect! I bought a few of these to store my clothes in while switching seasons. The instructions were easy to understand though the ones for the larger basket were a little difficult. Instructions were in the form of picture instead of words so it took some time to decide how to turn the pieces to fit. But when it was complete, it is a classy piece! I may buy another one later to put cds, books and living room stuff in. VERY NICE!

I just got the bins in today and put them together immediately (I ordered two). First off the assembly is fast and easy (took 30 min for both bins) , and the instructions were easy to follow and simple. The bins are deep and my daughter enjoyed putting her toys in. I was missing one set of dowels but oh well. They look great stacked in my living room. You will need one regular sized screw driver and one very small one for assembly. I did not notice an offending odor as some have. The only thing I would change would be to include the plastic screw covers and not stickers as this includes. I am considering ordering a few more for my daughters bedroom.

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.
