The carriage storage box is absolutely adorable! Hubby put it together without any problems. It's not as big as I anticipated. Only two downfalls.... The bench seat takes up some of the 'would be' storage space in the toy box so storage area is a bit small. The lid has to be removed to retrieve toys...it is not hinged to the box making it a bit difficult for small children. Thankfully, my SIL is a builder and can attach hinges to the lid and box.. Overall, looks to be like your typically made MDF product. I bought this for my 16-month-old grandson so I am hoping that it lasts a good several years for him.
