I ordered this to replace the soon-to-be broken trunk I bought at **** one and a half years ago (I have had better luck with **** furniture before...). Assembly is not too hard even for a non-handy female like me, although the 4 screws at the bottom took me a while and a bit of pain for my fingers to get in. I used it as a small trunk to store stuff in my bedroom. I know it's a toy trunk but what the heck it doesn't look kiddish to me. I ordered the espresso color hoping to match the color of my other furniture in the room. It arrived a bit more chocolately brown than I expected. I wish it is a bit more blackish brown but this is not a deal breaker. The spring safety mechanism of the top cover works well. Will see how this holds up but so far feels very sturdy. Can sit on it (115lbs female) safely. Overall rather satisfied with the purchase. For $$ it's a good deal.
Right after my husband assembled the bookcase, to my horror, my 2 year jumped right up on the seat and started reading a book! 1, I was pretty impressed my husband assembled it properly and 2, my little guy knew exactly what the spot was intended for! The quality was great for the price paid. It is suited best for a small toddler or child rather than a bigger kid. My son is 33lbs and fits perfectly on the seat. Love our new purchase and know this will increase reading time! *By submitting a review, each employee received a sweepstakes entry*
