This is a very sturdy chair. It is pretty heavy and the top and bottom are folded and there is a really good sturdy velcro section that fuses both parts together. This works well for kids, when company comes over they can sit on these while the adults get the better seating. I like how it folds up so you can lean it against the wall or put underneath a storage shelf. If it was a bit taller as I am a 40 year old with a bad back and I am not so crazy of getting low to the floor and having to roll on to my knees to get up, but I can do it. Sitting on the chair doesn't hurt a grown up back.
