We've been using this for about a month now. My 15 month old loves it. She figured out really quickly how to get in, but still have trouble getting out of it (last step is a bit big for her at this point). She can also move it around to where she want to get to the counter. It's really sturdy despite her dragging it around and stomping hard on the steps. The only problem we had was with the installation. They instruction do say not to turn the locking screws more than 1.5x times. Of course I did more than that just to be sure, but that dislodged the 2 of the screw locking portions from the wood. Ended up putting glue inside to be able to fully assemble. It has been pretty sturdy so far, hope it says like this. It's just a weird way to lock 2 pieces of wood, and very prone to an easy error. This is the only reason I'm taking 0.5 star away.
