Bookcase I ordered this for my son's play room. Despite it being small, it does hold a good number of books. I like the ease in which my son can take a book out. He can be pretty rough so I like how sturdy and safe this product is. Overall a very good buy!
Sudzie It's the perfect height for my daughter (almost 2-year-old). She can pick a book by the picture on the front. And put it back herself!It's light-weight and easy to move (this is a plus and a minus, as she can move it herself).We've had it for a few weeks now, and she hasn't tried to climb it, yeah!It was super easy to assemble. Took me about 20 minutes with no help. The only thing I would change: I would add a clear vinyl pocket to the front for little board books that otherwise get lost in the deep pockets. If I've ever got some free time on my hands, I might take it apart and add one myself. Or not.The most important thing is: the books are off the floor…for the most part, anyway. And that makes me smile.Thank you, [...]Kidcraft for making me smile. Disclosure: I received this product free from CSN Stores for review purposes. I received no other compensation.

Zoey's Mom Some of the screws were tough to screw in, but other than that putting it together was a breeze, and my daughter helped. I use this in her playroom to keep her coloring books and art supplies in and it's wonderful, and she doesn't throw all of her books on the floor looking for a certain one, they are on display. And so far it's been very durable.

M. Sullivan We ordered two shelves and assembled them upon arrival. It took about 30 minutes to assemble each shelf. With two small toddlers and lots of books...the shelves are perfect. The kids can see the books before they pull them out and there is less mess in the house. I have over 50 thin paperback books in the one shelf and at least 24 hardcover medium to large books in the other. These are great space savers and the color of the shelves is neutral which works in multiple spaces. Great deal!
Melanie Grady I just love how this bookshelf is so close to the ground and is easy for my daughter to reach. She loves standing up (holding on to the side) and looking for her books in the pouches. It's very nice and great quality.
Anon We haven't put this product to use just yet, it's for Christmas. But I was actually very pleased with the quality of the wood materials, I was concerned with the price of it being poor and dingy.The reason for the two stars however is the VERY shoddy work on the sewing. The lines aren't straight and the seams were already coming undone. On the upper panel with the red and yellow you can actually see part of the red panel since it was sewed on SO crooked. That part was a huge disappointment but thankfully I have someone in the family that can easily just make another group of slings for me.
Mom I got this for my son's books. I wanted him to be able to get them out and put them up himself without books falling over like in a traditional bookcase. It has been very useful and held up well. The smaller board books can get hidden in the "shelf" because they are not tall enough- no big deal though. I wish this product were a little bigger so that it would hold more books. I am considering buying a second one for this reason.
suzie q Gave this as a gift to my niece at her babyshower filled with books for baby. Everyone loved it, including her, and clapped when they saw it. The fact that the babies, toddlers, etc. can see the books is recommended by all my kindergarten teacher friends. Picture looks bigger-it's smaller in real life. Would change it by making it a bit bigger by making it a bit wider and having one shelf that will allow smaller books to be seen.
Mom of twin boys Have the bookcase in the boys bedroom for my less than 2 year old twin boys! They love grabbing the books and placing them back! It was easy to install...took less than 30 minutes, and it is the perfect size!
