Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bookcase with Reading Nook-Mint We love the mint color and the way it is designed. The shelf sizes are smaller than we thought they would be, I should have looked at the dimensions more. The seating area is nicely built but almost impossible to get the backboard screwed into place. It says it is a 1-2 hour build, but more like a 3-4 hour build. My biggest disappointment is that 50% of the edges have chips or were not ever made where the color goes all the way to the edge in the first place. Had I paid full price instead of sale price for this item I would have returned it because of these rough unfinished parts.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Awful assembly, cheap materials I love the KidKraft toy box, so I was disappointed to open this package and find dirty, scratched parts that looked like they'd already been assembled once and then returned. I guess a previous purchaser got to the final assembly step where you screw in four Allen bolts a quarter-turn at a time because of the complete lack of clearance, then gave up and sent it back. Issues, aside from mysterious grimy fingerprints, half-peeled-off stickers, and scuffs that don't buff out: 1. The engineered wood that makes up the central dividers is incredibly soft and weak. The pre-installed screw holes are tiny, so if you miss them, your screws will just bite into the soft wood instead and ruin it. 2. The design makes heavy use of cam lock nuts, which are those wide nuts that slide around the end of a bolt and then turn 180 degrees to hold the joint secure. That's fine, but in this bookcase, you have to either under-tighten or over-tighten the bolts in order to have clearance for the nut. The instructions don't mention this at all, much less that over-tightening is required for the first set of nuts and under-tightening for the second. 3. Every time you remove a piece to under/over-tighten the bolts because you can't get the cam lock nut to turn, you risk crunching the connectors on the other side of the piece because of issue 1, the horribly soft engineered wood. I am pretty good at furniture assembly and still had to re-do the cam lock nuts about 4 times each because of the different (undocumented) tolerances for each piece. 4. The very last step has you attach four Allen bolts in the back, with approx. 2 mm of clearance behind the bolts and 2 cm of clearance below the bottom two bolts. This is obviously significantly smaller than the size of the provided Allen wrench. Have fun turning those babies a quarter-turn at a time. 5. The provided pillow is not dark gray as pictured, but light gray with white polka dots. It has the same density and durable feel as a packing peanut. It is washable and comes off with a zipper, which is great news if yours arrived filthy like mine. The three parts are attached together so that you cannot easily sew replacement covers. There is already barely enough room for my 38" toddler, much less any pillow I might add to provide some back support. Overall, I expect this to look like complete junk in about two years, and be too small for my kid in one. I regret every moment I spent on its assembly and I will probably avoid KidKraft in the future. On the other hand, he declared "new bed!" and tried to put himself to sleep in it as soon as I assembled it. So, two stars.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed Assembly was horrific. Nails didn’t fit into parts, and pieces were very flimsy. We will not be including this in our nursery as originally planned.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor construction The screws break the plywood. we got replacement parts and they still jammed into the wood and cracked it. The instructions don’t offer advice. There was no help from customer service. All the negative reviews on Amazon have the same problem. I don’t understand how some people had an easy time assembling this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Neat Bookcase and Reading Nook This reading nook is made with attention to detail. All the screws were neatly prepared and clearly laid out. The screws they incorporated were just perfectly selected for the job too. I was very happy with the quality in their design and manufacture.
