Beautiful/Sturdy Toy Bins
Reviewed in the United States on June 14, 2019
I don't usually leave reviews, but I'm really impressed by these bins/bookshelves. We bought 2 of them in the salt oak finish to use for toy storage in our kids' playroom. I knew I was buying particle-board-constructed units at an affordable price (I just couldn't justify paying for solid wood knowing that these things were going to be put to the test by toddlers), but these have exceeded my expectations.
First of all, they look lovely & fit in well with the rest of the decor in our house. We're using them for toy storage now, but I foresee them going into our kids' rooms as they get older for their own personal storage.
Secondly, they are super sturdy. I was a little worried about our kids climbing in them or pulling up on them. That worry is gone. They are heavy, sturdy, and solid. I think they're going to hold up just fine to the wear and tear of small children (we've had them about 2mo now).
We got 2, because all of the playroom toys we have now definitely would have filled up 1 unit, and I know we're just going to accumulate more toys as our kids grow. They're the perfect size & orientation to allow for toddlers to search for their toys on their own, and the price is amazing for the quality.
My husband and I put the first one together, but I did the second one by myself. It's pretty easy. The only part of the process where it's helpful to have 2 people is when you put the 2nd side on. You start by attaching 1 side to the back pieces and the front pieces, then you put the other side on. Lining up everything is definitely more challenging when you do it alone, but it's certainly not impossible.
So moral of the story is, I would highly recommend this unit, especially as a toy storage solution!
