I have a 1 and 2 year old that both have their own storage chest. They love them and they really do hold a ton of toys. They were easy to set up (if it would have set up properly...see below) and are easy to clean and very safe for children. The only issue I have is that on one of the chests the door doesn't fit right. It is VERY tight and my two year old can't open/close it. The base of the unit isn't quite wide enough to allow the door to close all the way. I have contacted the Step 2 company to see if they will help. So far, they've just said this is a new design and had me email a picture of what I am talking about...I hope they can do more than that.

I purchased one of these lift hide bookshelves for my grandson 2 years ago for our home and wanted to purchase one for another grandson for his home only to find that the quality was no longer there. The one purchased 2 years ago and was on display in the store was very sturdy. It was a hard thick plastic and was in one piece. The one I brought home to give as a Christmas gift is going back. It is in 2 pieces (made to be screwed together) which is not a bad thing but it was so flimsy I couldn't believe the difference. I could actually see through the thin plastic. For the price they charged for this toy box I expected better. I think they need to go back to the quality and charge more if the profit margin is the problem.

    Comments about Step2 Lift & Hide Bookcase Storage Chest™:

    We were really excited for this toy box to contain a toy explosion that happened in our house after the kids' birthdays and the holidays.

    I was pretty surprised when I took it out of the box. Right away I could tell how thin the plastic was. Very different from the plastic in the two playhouses, kitchen and two wagons from Step 2 that we have. (We have the white and red one and you could see the floor tiles through the inside of the box if that shows how thin it is!).

    Also, the lid was scratched all over and had lumpy ridges along the bottom of the lid (where you put your hand to open it). It does hold quite a few toys and I love the shelf on top. Just not overly impressed with this item. Still on the fence if we will be keeping it or not.

      This product is cute, durable, has a good amount of storage. In fact, our 2 1/2 grandaughter used it to play hide and seek before it got filled with toys. The lid that goes up and slides back to stay open is especially nice. We are pleased.

        I bought two of these storage unit one for my son and one for my baby girl who is on the way. They are great for holding all sorts of things without fearing that the toy box will slam shut on little fingers.

          Comments about Step2 Lift & Hide Bookcase Storage Chest™:

          This is the best toy storage system we have used. I am planning ony buying one for my daughter too. It holds TONS of toys! We also use the two shelves to display our little people playsets. I like how it is very sturdy, and wont tip over. And safety-wise - the lid has a gap, and doesn't lock. It will be good for years to come!

          My granddaughters toy chest came with 2 screws, where do they go?
          cheree b on Jan 27, 2014
          BEST ANSWER: If you look at page 2 of the instructions for the Lift & Hide Bookcase Storage Chest you will see in picture 4 that the screws need to be put into the back of the chest.
          How long has this toy storage box bend on the market? I have a used one and it's very durable. Looks almost new.
          How do I find out how old it is ? Thanks
          Ronnie P on Sep 14, 2013
          BEST ANSWER: This product has been available for purchase on Step2.com since 2007. Here is a link to find the date code on your product which will tell you when your specific unit was manufactured http://step2.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/243.
          Is this suitable for outdoor use? We need a place to store balls and water toys in our back yard. We live in Vegas so the heat is more of a concern, but it rains occasionally in the summer too. Thanks for your time!
          A shopper on Mar 27, 2013
          BEST ANSWER: Yes - you should bring them in during cold weather.
          Will the lid stay on and slide back if the shelf is not put on or does the shelf have to be put on for it to work properly?
          michelle l on Nov 21, 2014
          BEST ANSWER: I think its all one piece so there isn't an option to leave the shelf off but I think they do have toy chests without the shelf
          Will a blue top ever be available? We currently have a red one, but it doesn't really match our blue race car bed.
          A shopper on May 9, 2014
          BEST ANSWER: We have a tan and blue version available here: http://www.step2.com/p/Lift-Hide-Bookcase-Storage-Chest-Tan-Blue
          Just wondering from a safety perspective...is this product free of BPA and PVC?
          A shopper on Sep 22, 2013
          BEST ANSWER: This Lift & Hide Bookcase Storage Chest is free of BPA and PVC.
          I have the one with the pink. Can I purchase just the red part so I can change the color?
          betsy on May 31, 2013
          BEST ANSWER: You can purchase these through our Customer Service Department. Please call toll free 1-800-347-8372 Monday - Friday, from 8-5 ET and we will be happy to assist you with this request.
          any other colors?
          A shopper on Apr 21, 2013
          BEST ANSWER: This bookcase comes in pink and red. We will be releasing an option with cream and navy within the month. Please check back for the color addition. As a side note, I personally own this product in red and I am amazed by the amount of storage room in this product!
