I bought this to put the Calico Critters house on. It's good quality wood and very sturdy. Cute paint job. It has a drawer to put all those teeny tiny Calico Critters pieces into. You may still want smaller boxes to put into the drawer. The table took me three hours to assemble. I did it all by hand. If you put this together by yourself, use an electric screwdriver. There are lots and lots of screws. The end results are definitely worth it.
This is a very well made and sturdy table. It is a perfect height for my 4 year old daughter and has a cute paint job as well. I recommend.Can`t really rate this for educational value but gave it 5 stars because I am so happy with it.
