Didn't take my husband that long to assemble, and looks great in my daughter's play area under a small window in our loft. The lid opens and closes without problems, and the paint job on it (we got the red one) is great without a single scratch. It's pretty sturdy, and seems like it will last for many years. My only wish is that it was a little longer so it could fit more toys.
I gave it to my grandson to stay in living room. It's such a nice piece of furniture and well made too. I got it in espresso to match my daughter's living room. IT holds a lot of toys. It's safe for my 4 years old grandson's little hands. My daughter loves it!! she gets a lot of compliments and looks very expensive!
I purchased this in white for my granddaughter and had it shipped directly to her so I haven't seen it in person. But my daughter reports that she's very happy with the quality. It's solidly built and the assembly was easy and took only about 20 minutes. The child-safe hinges work smoothly.
Great toy chest for the price. We got two of them, one in bubblegum and the other in blueberry for our kids. Both are great colors. They were easy to put together and like other reviewers have said much bigger than I thought they were going to be but that's great because it gives the kids plenty of room for toys!
Easy to assemble with great directions and everything but a screwdriver included...even extra hardware. Finished product looks nice, perfect size and has safety features I would expect. I haven't used it...it was a gift so hesitant to give 5 stars
