    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit for my growing boy!! I searched and done my homework before choosing a toybox! I didn't want a "cheaply made" one since I knew my son wouldn't outgrow a toybox for many years. I'm a single mom and want the most bang for my buck! I looked at lots of reviews and found that this particular one sounded perfect. When I recieved this shipment I quickly realized how simple the assembly is! Didn't take long at all to have it together and ready to go! It's very sturdy and durable for my growing boy! I've had it for a little over a year now and it's just as perfect as the first day I assembled it! Mason can open and close the chest door by himself now that he's 2. I love that I can close the lid to hide away his messy toys when company is over! His shelf is great for books and I keep his pull-ups on the top part for my sake lol this is a wonderful toy box and definitely worth every penny!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's just ok 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.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Change to product I bought this toy box for my grandson in November and loved it. Loved the fact that the lid lifted up and slid into a slot so no more toy box lids thrown across the room or falling on the head. I just ordered another one for my daughters new house and apparently they have changed the design. The lid does open and slide back but it was so hard to get into the slot I could hardly do it and forget about your child being able to pull it back out to close the lid, it was in there so tight. Once I did get it pulled out the lid just comes out into your hand, there are no more notches to keep your lid from lifting right out. It literally just sits on the ledge of the box. There was also a large gap at the top of the lid between the toy box and the bookshelf that I could fit my whole hand into. I do love all the room the toy box has in it and the bookshelf but will probably return. Not sure why they would change such a great feature.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not like is used to be. I first purchased the pink storage chest for my daughter about five years ago. I loved it!! My son just recently turned one, so of course I set out to buy him the same one in red. I quickly discovered that not only is it more expensive now, but is not nearly as thick and sturdy. If it wasn't for me finding it on sale, discounted because it was a floor display, and a coupon, I would never had bought it. I was disappointed that they changed what was a wonderful product, just to save a buck.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What I was looking for At my request my mother purchased this toy box for my son's second birthday. We've had it for 1.5 years now.It was easy to move. It is light, when empty.It offers a lot of storage space. It's easy for my son to empty and easy for him to put his toys away.Mostly he likes to pull the books down off the top shelves and climb up and stand on the top. It's been sturdy enough for him to climb on it.After he outgrows it I will take it to my classroom and I plan to store indoor recess toys within it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from wonderful toy box This toy box is wonderful for a small child. MY 3 YEAR OLD GRANDDAUGHTER LOVES IT. not only does it hold lots of toys but lots of her favorite books as well. The lid is easy enough for her to open and close by herself. Cleanup and hiding toys are a breeze with this toy box. I own 2 other toy boxes by little tikes as well. However, this 1 holds far more toys not to mention books too than either of the little tikes does. However, not complaining about the lt boxes b/c they are good too and to think that I found all 3 in like new condition at either yard sales or a consignment shop. I would highly recomend this toy box to anyone who is limited on space and has a toddler with lots of toys.Has a small opening with lid fully closed so that little ones will not be able to smash their precious little fingers.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Storage at a Great Price My husband and I purchased this about a year ago when we realized we had nowhere to put my son's toys and books. We chose it because it was inexpensive and the store model seemed sturdy and had a lot of storage space.My son loves to go in and get his own toys. It makes him feel like a big boy. It also teaches him to clean up his toys when he's finished playing with them. Occasionally he'll pull out all the toys and climb in, which is okay with me as long as he picks them up again. :-)My only negative comment would be that, like some other reviewers have stated, it comes in three pieces, so the book shelf tends to shift. However, it isn't a problem for us since we have it against his bedroom wall. When it shifts back, it hits the wall and won't fall off. You can also screw them together, but we just chose not to.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice storage chest with bookcase I bought two of these chests for my 18 month-old twin babies (a boy and a girl). They had a blast throwing their toys in and out the chest and the book case the first time I put it up. There is ample storage space and bookcase is the selling point for me. I would have given a 5 star review. But the lid on the pink one is really tight. I can not open and push the lid back without appling heavy forces. I will call customer service for solutions

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent; used to be better b4 redesign I have an older model I suppose of this same xact bookcase, it that one was much more durable, in my opinion. They both have the same amount of space, design and look, but the quality seems to have changed. Feel much lighter, and this one needed to be put together (only a 1 step process) however, my original one was 1 big piece, no assembly which leads me to believe this model has been recently changed (my origianl was bought 2 years ago)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from not for outdoors We tried to use this for outdoor toy storage -- not it's intended use -- because it's durable and plastic. I wouldn't recommend it. The storage bin isn't water-tight and actually traps standing water. When bringing it back inside it took a long time and many times turning the whole thing upside down to finally drain all the water out. It's serving well as an indoor toy storage/bookshelf unit :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lift Hide Bookcase Storage Chest by Step I had this same toy box for my first child. I had gotten rid of the original one as I thought I was done having children but when it came time to get another toy box after the birth of my youngest son, no other toy box I looked at would do, as I was so happy with the original one I purcahsed 10 years ago, so I went to the Step 2 website and made my second purchae of this toy chest.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of Storage I have had this item for my son for about 6 months now. It was super easy for me to put together (took all of 5 minutes if that). I have thrown all of his toys into the chest area and there is still enough room for more! The books shelves are nice since there is a backing on them so the books/items places on them will not fall behind the toy box area. I was a little worried about my son tipping this thing over but if you put it up against a good wall and have enough toys in the chest part you should be just fine. My boy is almost 11 months old now and loves to sit inside the chest too... there is just that much room. When he sits in there he will close the lid and poke his little fingers out... the best part is that his fingers will NEVER get smashed because the lid looks shut but will not be plastic on plastic on the bottom of the lid. I would recomend this item... wish it came in more colors though.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely love it!!! I bought this for my son's 2nd birthday and he is now 8. It has held up very weel, better than I expected considering my son is able to break even matchbox cars. I would recommend this to everyone especially someone with disabled children like my two children are. It's very easy for both of my children to open up and not close on fingers. I highly recommend this!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from From board books to chapter books This book shelf has traveled across many states. My son had this product in his room for about three years. Now my daughter age 8 has had it in her room for 4 years now. I was about to pass it onto a friend, but my daughter still loves it and wants to keep it in her room. What once held toddler toys and board books now holds chapter books and knick knacks.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very sturdy & holds TONS of toys! 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!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very spacious I love this product. It is so spacious inside but takes up very little room in my house. I couldn't believe it fit all my daughters toys that had been taking over the living room. Also very stable, my daughter climbs it to get her shoes on the top shelf and it doesn't move.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WONDERFUL! This model holds A LOT of toys in the storage bin area, and A LOT of books and whatever else on the 2 shelves. Easy to clean - grandson got crayon all over it, and it scrubbed right off. Very stable, very safe & highly recommended!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! This was a Christmas present for my now 2 year old. At 18 months, she was able to work the sliding lid, and climb to the shelf! Thus, we discovered how sturdy it is. Bottom space hols A LOT! Top shelves are good for books.

    Why are there no holes for the screws

    Asked by: Christina
    Our manufacturing process does allow us to consistently place holes into parts without creating plastic shavings which are considered small parts per the toy safety industry standard for USA. We instead provide location points for screws as shown in the product instructions. The metal screws are self-tapping and when a downward pressure or force is applied onto screw with driving in with screwdriver, they will drive into the plastic and create their own hole. This would be the same or true of driving screws into a wood board without a hole. If needed or preferred, you can use a small nail with a hammer and pound a nail in a bit to create starter hole and then take out install screw. A power screwdriver or rechargeable drill can also be used to aid installing screws but we do not always recommend as driving screws in too far can strip out the plastic and cause other damage.

    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?
