We purchased this about 6 years ago. Our granddaughter would crawl up under our coffee table and hurt herself trying to get out. This is low to the ground so she couldn't do that. It is sturdy and has held up well. The kids sit on and climb on it and it has had no problems. I gave 4 stars because the studs are smaller on the sides than on the front/back. Also one stud is bright and the rest are antique brass.
I actually bought this for my senior 180 lb English Mastiff to use as a 'couch' by the window, to keep him off mine! It's low enough for him to get on/off of easily, and big enough for him to sprawl out on while keeping an eye on what's going on outside. Not what it was intended for, but it works!
