When I first received this I did not realize it shipped in three boxes. When I went to verify the assembly directions I realized I did not have all the parts. I contacted the seller and they investigated and had the needed parts shipped to me to arrive in 3 business days. Excellent service. Assembly was pretty straight forward. Two of us had it assembled and ready in about two hours. When my grandson first saw it he wasn't sure what it was but as soon as we showed him the bed and cabin he loved it. He could not get enough of climbing up and down the ladder and going inside his "house". His parents had been having difficulty getting him to sleep in his bed before this but since we gave this too him, no problems. He has slept in it every night. He is just over three years old. I am so pleased he loves it so much.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. There was a slight ding in the corner of one of the back rails, not bad enough to notice after assembly.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very acurate
The description said solid birch - it is not! It is poor quality laminate veneered particle board. The fasteners are also poor quality.It has an unfinished back, with cheap plastic exposed corner fasteners. I used half a bottle of gorilla glue in assembling this because I was nervous about the ability of the fasteners to hold it together, If I had not purchased on-line and could have returned to a local store I would have.
- the joints do not come together and show 1/8" gaps in places
- there was seven wooden assembly dowels included - it needs 8
- the instructions skip several steps. If I were not an architect and used to figuring out 3d assemblies, I am not sure I'd have been able to assemble it.
I have never written a negative on-line review before, but this product was such a poor overall package that I feel compelled to.
