We bought these bins for our 2-year-old boy and girl twins. The bins fit great inside an [Bramd} storage unit. We can say "Can you put the toy away in the owl or hippo or frog, etc.?" which is great for cleanup time since they can identify animals but not reliably sort yet. Or we can turn it into a color lesson by saying "Can you put the toy away in the pink or green bin?" so that works well.
The only thing I find a bit annoying is that the mesh around the mouths of the bins are not sewn in so sometimes the twins will try to grab the toys out of the bins that way by pushing back the mesh. It's a bit frustrating when the bin contains smaller toys like Legos because it can sometimes spill them out.
But the bins are sturdy and are surviving a daily onslaught of twins so yeah, I'd say they're worth the money. And cute too!
I went to Target looking for shelves. I found this shelf, love the color. I was hoping to find a white one also. Unfortunately they didn't have white. I bought another brand sold by Target named Close Maid. I put the Close Maid shelf together first. What a joke the plywood kept splitting. Extremely frustrating. I then put the Circo brand together. Talk about night and day!!! The Circo is so easy to assemble. It took me half the time as the Close Maid. They are both the same price, but extremely different in quality. I will never stray again from the Target brand name again.
Was looking for something to put all my babies stuff in and this worked perfect and was large..Only problem I had with the organizer was when they made it they could of done a better job with the holes some where berly half way threw and found 2 extra holes..But it will work for what I need it for and am happy and liked the price..
The particle boards used for the assembly are very dense and hold together very well. I put them together very easily and it was almost lightweight when I went to stack them. The mounting supplied in the package work very well and don't wiggle on you at all. I would use this in the bedroom of any rambunctious footballer kid who crashes into everything, or the little climber gymnastic tomboy, even the princess who likes to overload her shelves. I have every inch of the shelves filled with big books and toys. I have yet to see any kind of bending, cracking, or warping. The surface of the material is very satiny soft and smooth to the touch, this surface is not sticky and won't bother the most autistic of children. As far as I have seen, this unit is not easily burned. Candles are not a threat, but generally advised against when it comes to particle board.
