My son (3) and my niece (2) love this storage bench. My mother bought it for her play room. We were even surprised to have the problem of my nephew (7) playing with it. The bench begs to be played with and children gravitate to like bees to honey. It's a handsome piece of furniture, but when it says use a hand held screwdriver... please do so. You can crack the wood if you use a power screwdriver.
I bought this for a very small bedroom to maximize space. It was easy to put together and just fit at the end of the room. It almost looks like a built in. The drawers are a nice size and can fit a lot of clothes. For me this worked great because my son is an adult. It probably would not work as well for younger kids with out a stool or ladder as it is quite tall with the mattress on it.
We ordered white color, and some parts (especially edges) are not clean and chipped. However, those flaws became not so much visible after assembly, especially with all the toys on the shelves. I love the shelf' depth -- the bottom storage hold most of my daughter's crazy amount of stuffed animals. Well, we bought two of the shelves, so it was. Also, the depth allowed all of our big board games to be stored nicely on the shelf. The bookcase is deep and heavy in the bottom, so there's no concern of tipping over. It is perhaps the best bookshelf we can find for the kids' room. Assembly was easy but takes about 20 minutes for each bookcase.
