I purchased the bench to store outdoor toys so they wouldn't end up around the yard. The bench does keep out the rainwater which is a huge plus. It was also very easy to assemble. It fits two adults comfortably so I can watch the kids play. Love it
This bench was exactly what I was looking for. There are others out there for less the hold more but they all look like a regular storage container that you'd hide in your attic or basement. But this one looks great on our patio beside our garden and all my sons outdoor toys fit in. Only bad thing is the lid does not stay open, you have to hold it up, so little ones could get their fingers shut in it, but it is also light plastic.
