I have mixed feelings about this crib mattress. First of all, I had to send back two of them for defects in worknmanship, like open seams and skewed, crooked padding. The third one sent was finally solid in construction. However, the product description is misleading. It leads you to believe there is a latex core which there is not. The mattress label reads 85% coconut fiber, 8% cotton and 7% Blended and bonded fire retardant cotton batting (85% cotton & 15% polyester). It says not one thing about Latex at all. When we received the one with open seams, you could see inside the mattress what looked like sheets of pressed coconut fiber layered on each other (looks like sheets of cardboard would), then wrapped in the cotton blend batting. Perhaps they coat the layers of coconut fiber with latex? I have no idea where the latex really is. It does not smell like chemicals, but rather like coconut husks, and fits into the crib snuggly. The mattress seems softer than our previous crib mattress, but that may be because they are no longer using vinyl covers in manufacturing of baby mattresses (thankfully), and the fabric covering over cotton batting is softer. We are keeping this mattress because my goal was to have a more natural/organic alternative to the conventional baby mattresses on the market, which this seems to be, but would have preferred to have known ahead of time that this is not a latex core mattress like I was led to believe. Hopefully this will help the next buyer.
This is a really cute bench and the draws are deeper than I thought! My complaints are the quality, and odor. The leather wasn't very tight on the seat and has some imperfections that are kinda noticeable in the corners. And the draws smell strong. I laid them out for 24 hours before putting my daughters toys in them and the odor is still there. It makes your toys smell toy. It's not enough to return it but it does bother me. Cute idea but for older kids
This is the perfect size for my children. Most of the benches available are too high for a child to sit on and put on her shoes, but this one is exactly the right height. I needed something that they could both use at the same time, so this is perfect. It was expensive for the quality, especially since the drawer bottoms are so flimsy that you can't put anything more than a couple of pounds in there. I put it in my garage, so I didn't need the faux leather cushion and espresso look. Plain white would have been fine. The other option (pink) was too much for my girls at this age.
We were very impressed with this product. I wasn't sure how the quality would be after ordering online but we were very pleased. The white paint is nice and looks very cleanly finished. The bench is sturdy and overall well-made. The bins slide in and out well and are sturdy enough to handle little ones tugging on them. I like the leather finish...very easy for cleaning!
