I wanted this book display for my daughter's room, and read a lot of great reviews here on Amazon, especially complimentary descriptions of the fine carving on the side, which would lead one to believe this product is made of solid wood.

However, I called the company prior to ordering it and asked about the materials it was made from. MDF (medium density fiberboard) was the representative's reply. According to the EPA, MDF contains a higher resin-to-wood ratio than any other UF pressed wood product and is generally recognized as being the highest formaldehyde-emitting pressed wood product.

I further inquired into whether Guidecraft makes an effort to cut down on indoor environmental pollutants in their pressed wood, by using safer glues, and setting limits on formaldehyde content. The response was no, and that this bookcase does indeed contain formaldehyde, but that Guidecraft has no information available on what level, as this is not something that they monitor or have set regulations concerning.

According to all major health organizations, formaldehyde can cause watery eyes, burning sensations in the eyes and throat, nausea, and difficulty in breathing in some humans exposed at elevated levels (above 0.1 parts per million). High concentrations may trigger attacks in people with asthma. There is evidence that some people can develop a sensitivity to formaldehyde. It has also been shown to cause cancer in animals and may cause cancer in humans. Health effects include eye, nose, and throat irritation; wheezing and coughing; fatigue; skin rash; severe allergic reactions.

I bought 2 of these for my family daycare. They were quick to put together - although I didn't follow the directions for the second one. First, I would highly suggest using a drill. It would've taken much longer to put it together has I used a screwdriver. The display comes with 4 pieces - 2 sides, 1 bottom and the inner wooden dowels with canvas for the books. The directions tell you to screw the woden dowels into the sides first, and then screw in the bottom piece. I found it much each easier to screw the bottom piece to the 2 sides first - the wooden dowels stayed in place much better while screwing them into place because the structure of the display was already there. Other than that - one minor flaw - one of the dowels cracked as I was screwing it into place. I don't know whether this was my fault or a product defect, but it happened. It didn't affect the display, but time will tell whether this one wooden dowel holds up as well as the others.

Aside from putting it together, this is the cutest thing ever! The sides are actually carved out, they aren't just a picture. The display holds a decent amount of books too! And, the kids love to see the fronts of the books - they're much more likely to pull out the books if they can see the pictures!

Before I purchased this book display, I was not sure whether it is worth the money since you can make one by yourself (its design is quite simple). Now I am convinced that it is the right one for busy parents having toddlers.

It is easy to assemble. It is steady. Definitely when the books are displayed by their front pages, it is easy for little kids.

Verified Purchase
If I had seen this in person in a store I would not have bought it due to flimsyness. If my spouse had not already assembled it I would have returned it. The artistic paintings on sides are textured and just fabulous. The pic on here as of time I wrote this does not show the screw holes. These are holes where screws are inserted through painted sides to screw into the cross rods. If they would have only supplied the typical wooden inserts and had them painted to match then it would be no big deal, but it is irritating that the pic on here is deliberately altered to cover up these obvious holes. They are small ( about 1/4 inch, but there are 7 of them on each side and the hole plus screw head makes obvious contrast to the very cute designs. The rods themselves should be 50% larger diameter and then the screws into them need to be longer & larger. I actually broke one screw with a hand screw driver and stripped another hole entirely and I was trying to go easy because I knew they might strip out. Even then it still is wiggly and in my opinion not even close enough to being sturdy enough for a toddler. Bottom line, the engineering (as is so typical these days) is poor, the paintings are awesome, and the manufacturer tried to cut corners too much by using too cheap of hardware and cross rods. Totally not worth the price.
Being it is already together and damaged we will keep it, but most likely we will either replace rods with shelves and paint them to match OR install 2 cross braces diagonally across in back behind book holders. The cross braces will be easiest but shelves would make better look and even more support. If no shelves then for sure longer screws and wood glue to hold screws in. It seems quite reasonable that in one year several screws would strip out holes just from everyday use by a child unless you glue them.
Great idea, great artwork, great size albeit small sized for kids, but too cheap on structure and poor engineering.
