I wasn't sure I was going to like the canvas shelves, but: (1) I do! They are very versatile, and easy to pull out and put back in, great for kids younger than 5 or 6! (2) you can leave the shelves off and use the cubbies without them.
The structure of this is also sturdy and heavier than I would have thought. The unit itself isn't "heavy" at about 40 pounds, but it is heavy enough I'm not worried about it getting wobbly or falling over or anything. Note: Some of the dowel rods that hold up the canvas "pouches" for the books are slightly small for the space. This makes sense, as they can't be too large, and they don't need to be super tight. Just be careful not to tighten the smaller ones too tightly so that your wood doesn't bend funky. (Tip from my husband.) They are probably 1/16 to 1/8" smaller, so not significant. Does not bother us at all.
Overall, I'm very satisfied with my purchase and would purchase again, and would suggest to another mom (or preschool teacher)!
The real selling point on this bookshelf for me was the 2 storage bins, and this is the only one on the market that I could find. There are always uses for storage bins when it comes to a toddler's toys and kudos to the manufacturer for knowing this. I was very happy that all but one of her puzzles fit - in only ONE of the bins, and there's room for a few more. (The only one that doesn't fit is a big 12"x15" Melissa & Doug Latch puzzle) I still have an empty bin! I'm probably going to use it for her growing collection of stuffed animals. Also, I was surprised that the front sling is only 4" deep, but we have several 3x3, 4x4, etc books that would just get lost in the deeper pockets, so I'm happy for the shorter one. To me, this was a very well thought out design. I know this will last her for years. It's small enough for a toddler to use, but big enough that it would easily work for a 7-8 yr old.
My only regret is that this doesn't come in anything other than beige. Other than that, I'm very happy with this bookshelf and highly recommend it.
