I bought the yellow desk, which was the perfect, bright, pop of color that I was looking for, for my daughter's room. The piece is quite heavy, and made well, so I am hopeful that it will last and grown with my daughter. The entire top comes already put together, you basically just attach the legs and you're good to go! The largest piece that comes off in the front, is a bit bulky, if you are planning to buy for a child, but it's manageable (my 5 year old daughter can get it off and on with a bit of effort). The storage it provides is really the best! With a five year old, you can imagine the level of crafting that goes down in her room, and this hides away all of her coloring books, paper, stickers, crayons, pencils, glue, you name it. Plus the colored surface is nice and slick, so I'm guessing that it will be easy enough to wipe down, should we have the occasional crayon or marker slip, that's inevitable with a little one. Having this new "big girl" desk has also made her very excited about the idea of doing homework at it. So, hey, that's priceless in itself!
Nothing design-spectacular about the aesthetic, but it is sturdy and works well for a child's art/crafting/work desk, especially with the multiple cubby holes.
While this could be great as a craft desk, though its not really big, I bought this as a desk for 2 grandchildren to use at once. When I open the extensions, my grandkids (8 & 5), can each pull up a chair on either side and they have their "own" desks. Drop the sides when they are done and its very space saving. I did have to buy the adjustable height desk chairs for kids as this is too high for a small standard child chair. Coloring books and big things go in the bottom drawer, markers, crayons and paper go in the other ones. Easy wipe surface and well constructed. The only real drawback is there are lots and lots of pieces. Everything has to be assembled and while the instructions made it easy to follow, it took two of us over and hour easily to finish. If you use a power screwdriver you will save yourself getting carpal tunnel from all the wrist turning. This was a great purchase and I would highly recommend it, no matter what you use it for! Lastly, as we put it together it seemed like it would be wobbly, but when the final piece was in place, and everything tightened, perfectly solid piece of furniture.
