While the wardrobe itself is wonderful--ours arrived with lots of scratches and chips. The particle board construction seems to be somewhat prone to this kind of damage. Other than than, however, we've been very happy with the piece. It holds quite a lot!
Purchased the Juvenile Wardrobe with the understanding that it would be used as temporary stroage for my daughter's clothing. The quality is in line with the price point and the fiberboard materials used to construct the item. The quality is fair at best and the wardrobe would come apart if moved too much. The major issues I had with the wardrobe were in the delivery and assembly of the item. The wardrobe was delivered in two separate boxes, one of which had a large gash. Upon inspecting the items, a big portion of the hardware needed to assemble the wardrobe was missing, most likely from the hole in the box. I called the company (PrePac Mfg) that actually manufactures the wardrobe, and requested replacement parts. After three weeks and numerous calls and emails, I finally received the package of replacement hardware. Unfortunately, they still didn't send all the hardware needed and I was forced to go to Home Depot to buy the screws, etc needed to complete the assembly. To make matters worse, there were NO pre-drilled holes on the doors to attach the door hinges to, so I had to drill them myself in order to attach the hinges. As one who is extremely mechanically inclined and handy with all types of tools, this wardrobe was a pain to put together because of the lack of attention to detail by the manufacturer. I would NOT recommend this wardrobe to anyone. I am sure for a little more money, there is better quality out there to be had.
There's no use pretending this is anything more than it is--a you-build-it MDF wardrobe for kids. But I've put together a lot of cheap furniture in my time, and I was pleasantly surprised by how easily and nicely this one went together. Everything was plumb, and even the hinged doors went on and worked smoothly with no problem. If you need a little extra storage space, I high recommend this item.
Only issue I have ia the sores we can't seem to get them lines up to close right now matter how many time s we adjust it, it def bigger then the picture presents love it

The directions are very easy to follow. It does not include wood glue, but it holds together fine without it. The particle board was a little damaged from shipping, but that's UPS' fault, not the manufacturer; and shipping was free. The rails for the drawers are made out of plastic, and so are the drawer hardware knobs. Had they been made out of metal, the quality would've been better but the price would've been more expensive; therefore, you get what you pay for. The size is perfect for what I need it for. It is made out of particle board, but sturdy enough to last me until I feel like moving into a different house. I was very pleased with my purchase. I also bought the matching dresser.

I always enjoy putting this type of furniture together, but if you don't like assembling this is not the wardrobe closet for you. Also, had some damage on doors, but called company right away and received new ones today. Very quick turn around time and no questions asked. Will be using for storage of work uniforms. Great fit.
I was looking for a wardrobe for my 6 year old boy. There was not much to choose from so I decided to try Juvenile Wardrobe. When it comes to setup, it was not too complicated. However, the quality is very poor. The drawers are very small and they were not working properly when installed (they do not have regular tracks). The wardrobe looks cheap. I do not want to move anywhere; it looks like it may fall apart any minute.
This was the first time I had purchased from Overstock.com and I was blown away by their service. I am very impressed with the quality and service I received from them. I will most definately use this site for future purchases as well as reccommend them to my family and friends.
This wardrobe is great if you are looking for a little extra storage.However, when it arrived, one of the peices was seriously damaged (but it was in the back so it isn't noticable). The other issues is the size of the cabinet. I put blazers and other blouses in it and the arms do not fit. It is narrow and cannot hold much.
The wardrobe was pretty much what we thought it would be like. And it really was not that hard to put together. But for some reason, nobody seemed to think holes needed to be pre-drilled in the doors. So we of course had to do it. Other than that, its an okay product and good for kids to use.
I had purchased this wardrober for my grand-daughter who needed additional space for her clothing. The wardrober looks good for the price I paid and was not difficult to put together. The quality is not the best, but for what you paid for it, you really cannot stress. The middle door has a gap, which I read in another review. So I am thinking this is why it is sold so cheaply. The cabinet itself is not even, so we had to improvise and put something under one side on the floor to keep it from being wobbly. I would not recommend this to a friend. I would recommend trying to find a quality product and pay the additional money.
This item was not up to the standards that I expected. My husband wanted to return it, but actually we were in a bind as my grandchildren were coming to visiit and I needed a place for their clothing. It was actually very cheaply made. In some places when tightening a screw the product split or cracked. Since it was for children when I looked at the price I thought it would be okay eventhough it was not expensive. However, I was wrong. It does look okay as you can not see the cracks but it had will not adjust so there is a small space between the doors and the drawers are very hard to open. There are also scratches on the L side of the wardrobe. Since they do not open with ease I expect them to be a problem in the future. (spliting, etc.). I have been satisfied with previous items that I have bought from Overstock.com. Perhaps I should have gone with the old saying, "you only get what you pay for", but I also thought that your prices were cheaper as they are overstocked items. I assume that is not true with all items. All in all I will use it for as long as it lasts, but I will be more careful in the future. Your customer service is wonderful and your reps are very nice. This was not their fault. I am disappointed, but it will have to due, but in the future I will be more selective. Also it was lost in shipping...but I do not hold you responsible for this as I do realize these things sometime occur in shipping items. It still did arrive in time for my needs.
