My son has a variety of toys, and this organizer helps me to keep everything separate. I keep alphabets blocks in one bin, soft toys in another, puppets in a third, and so on. So it is very easy for me to grab a new set of toys for my son to play with when he needs a new rotation!
You can't tell from the picture, but the cross bars are actually metal. I was pleased to note that when I assembled the piece. As many kids will try to climb into or on top of this unit, it is good to see construction that may stand up to that kind of abuse. I was anticipating wooden dowel rods, which would snap much more easily. So the quality of materials is good. And it was a snap to assemble.
I'm a fan of this piece and am very glad that I purchased it.

This was so easy to assemble and sturdy. It holds a lot of toys. My son is starting to play with some of his old toys again since they're no longer hidden in a toy box. It's at a good height that he can easily see and pick what toy he wants to play with. Yes, he's even starting to put some of the toys back into the bins! Love this product!!

This organizer was just perfect for all my sons small dinosaurs, cars, blocks - even coloring books. I agree that it could tip over but it would take a big tug in my opinion.... I think it's important to make sure you put the trays on exactly like the instructions say... keeps the weight evenly distributed. To be safe, anchoring is a great idea but it might also depend on whether your toddler might try to climb or pull on it too.... I thought it was so great for getting organized, I ordered a 2nd one. For the larger toys, we use colored milk crates beside this organizer.

We purchased this organizer to corral all of my sons tiny toys, cars, blocks, etc. It looks nice and he can get what he wants to play with without having to dig around in a toy box, he can take a separate box of toys out and play with them and put the whole thing back without upsetting the entire organizer, it's been great. I had no trouble at all putting it together, and it seems very sturdy.

So easy to put together, visually pleasing, my 2 1/2 year old didn't leave her playroom for days after we bought this. Presented all her toys in a visually interesting way, and lets her know what toys she has to play with. Probably will buy a second.
