We purchased this twin bed for our 3-year old son. It is the perfect height (he's able to step on the side rail to get up on the mattress). The height of the headboard above the pillow is perfect (some seem like they are awkwardly tall, but this is very proportional). The frame is very sturdy, and it feels like the wood slats (mattress support slats) will hold up to whatever abuse our little guy can inflict. We plan to keep this through his teen years, and are pretty comfortable saying that it will likely hold up for years. It was EXTREMELY easy to assemble (even without the directions...which were missing, but Overstock quickly emailed them to me!) - probably 2 hours total (takes a little longer with a "helper" taking all your tools/screws...). I'd recommend 2 people to assemble once you start putting the rails to the head/foot board, but you could probably do it solo. We love it - the color is perfect - goes well with any other dark-stained furniture. Overall, amazing product. 10 out of 10 for this Overstock.com bed!
