This furniture is the right size and well made. It is heavy enough and so has never given us the fear of tipping or falling apart, however there is something that really bothers us. all the books fall forward. We have to costantly straighten it out and shift books around so that it all stacks up perfectly. If one rack is too full or starts to lean forward, it pushes all the books on the other shelves forward. This makes it impossible for the kids to put the books away (correctly) and a hassle for me. Maybe one of those other book racks that are wooden rows wouldn't have this problem. If I had known, I would have tried that out instead.

We are very happy with the Kids' Sling Bookshelf. It seems sturdy and will probably hold up well. The only complaint I have is that the assembly of the shelves could have been easier if the directions were clearer. Only two of the wood pieces were labeled, and there were four little metal parts that were not mentioned anywhere in the instructions. It turns out they are nut-like gizmos which have to be inserted into predrilled holes in the bottom horizontal piece so that they can receive the bolts that hold the sides to the bottom piece.

I really like this bookshelf and I was just thinking to myself last night how glad I am I got it for my two-and-a-half yr old son. It makes him much more interested in his books because he can see them better. He gets them out all the time now whereas he rarely did before. And the extra storage at the bottom is really really nice because we have very limited space. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the books lean forward a little bit and I'm a perfectionist so it bugs me, but not enough to not be glad I bought it. Maybe we just have taller than average books?
I am very VERY happy with this product and highly recommend it.

I use the term AMAZING to describe Amazon, One Step Ahead (the manufacturer), and the Sling Bookshelf with Storage Bins. I ordered this on April 10th and received an email from Amazon that it would be shipped to me from the manufacturer and that I would receive it by April 18th. Imagine my surprise when it came to my house the very next day...April 11th. My husband usually handles our building tasks, but I easily assembled the bookshelf myself in about 30 minutes...with the help of my two-year-old son. He handed me all of the pieces and we had it done in no time. The assembly instructions were clear and easy to follow. When the assembly was complete, we loaded the shelves with my son's books and put his stuffed animals, LeapPad, headphones, art supplies, and other miscellaneous items in the drawers. We still have a ton of space. My son was so excited. We sat and read three books that he chose. Even when he woke up the next morning he said, " My Bookshelf!"...and he had the biggest smile on his face. This was definitely a great buy.

After more than a year of hard usage by our three year old son, it has performed marvelously well. Not only does it look beautiful in my living room, but it also does its job spectacularly well. When we get a little lazy with rotating books in and out, it can get a little overfull. As others noted, when you have too many books in it the books all begin to fall forward (which does not hurt anything other than aesthetics). So, as long as you understand that this bookshelf is meant to display 9 or 10 of the books your child is currently enjoying and not to store every picture book in the house, you will love it.

This shelf was a big hit with my two year old, and it is great that she can now easily put away her books. It is sturdy, looks nice with our other dark furniture, and holds a lot of books. The drawers under are perfect for toys, too. The only downside is that the books all lean forward in their shelves, which looks a little odd, but functionally doesn't matter that much.

My son is 3 years old and this bookshelf is perfect for the child to be able to see the titles of the books and pick one to read. This was easy to put together. Took less than 30 minutes. All parts were in box and in perfect condition. We are very happy with our new bookshelf!

I bought this to organize my daughters books and it is just perfect. It was easy to put together and matches our dark furniture very well. My daughter is able to grab the books herself and its so cute watching her pick out books to look at. I am not sure why other reviewers think it doesn't fit many books, but we have been able to put lots of books on this shelf. The little storage containers are also nice to throw extra toys in. If you are looking for something durable, simple, with a kid friendly design this is the bookshelf for you.
