  1. Liliana

    Sturdy, safe, holds lots of books and makes them appealing to pick outI had been using a smaller bookcase with canvas book holders but needed a much bigger and sturdier bookcase to hold the books for my now two year old that are overflowing my coffee table. After a long search, I finally settled on this one and I am glad I did. It is quite sturdy, holds lots of books, and was relatively straightforward to assemble if you follow the directions plus a couple of tips.Pro:* All pieces are solid wood. The whole stand feels sturdy. I’m sure this will last much longer than my canvas one, the canvas ripped after just a couple of months. It feels less flimsy and seems like it can handle more weight than particle board.* The design allows for a lot of books without taking up much space. If you have an area where you don’t have to put the bookcase against a wall, the double sided design holds a ton of books and yet does not take too much floor space 36” x 19” vs the 15” for the single sided. The five shelves on each side is also one more than the usual four shelves I have seen. Each shelf is still deep enough to hold two board books. Without stuffing, leaving room to easily take out each book, you can still fit a good 90 books.* It feels safe. All of the edges are round. The screws are all recessed. And with these lower bookcase vs the taller ones, there’s no need to anchor it to a wall (if it were single sided), no fear of it toppling over.* All book covers are visible even from the small board books.* The assembly is mostly straightforward. The direction suggested two people for assembly. Having two people may make the last step a bit easier to do but it is pretty painless as a one person job. I am not particularly handy and was able to assemble it in about one hour. It only requires an Allen wrench which is included. However, if you already have a better handheld one, that would be easier on your hands than this which has no handle. There are 26 screws total. The only tricky part is installing the last side board after all five shelves on each side have been screwed into the other side board. My Tip On This Last Step (hopefully to save you some time and pain): – Gently flip the whole structure onto the side so that the current sideboard is flat on the floor and all of the middle shelves and their holes are facing upwards – Take a sharpie and draw a small dot on the ‘bottom’ of each shelve to indicate where the screw holes are. – Put all of the screws into the 13 holes on the sideboard to be installed then gently lay the sideboard on. Not all the screws will immediately fit into their holes and that’s ok. I find that not pushing the top crossbar wooden dowels in first but keeping the sideboard level makes the next step easier. – Using the sharpie dots as a guide, gently push each middle shelves until each screw is lined up with respective hole. Do this for all 13 screws. Then tighten all 13 screws.I find that doing it this way versus lining up and tightening sequentially made it less likely that you end up with the frustration of few screws not lining up.ConsThe exposed screws are a little aesthetically not pleasing but that is a small issue.I will update the review once I have used it for a while but for now I am very happy that all of the books fit neatly on the shelves and the book covers are clearly visible for my toddler to easily pick out!

  2. My Thoughts

    after initial order arrived damaged, they got me a new one within 2 weeksI have tried emailing this company three times and they refuse to address the issue. I am completely disappointed with this company.*****Comment Edited on 3/5/13: After my first review of the product, this company contacted me directly and helped me get a replacement bookshelf. Originally, when the first bookshelf arrived damaged, I emailed the company several different times and asked for a replacement-not a refund. They kept sending me an email stating that their policy is not to replace furniture items. After about 3 emails like that, they finally told me to ship it back to them and they would send me another – however they refused to pay for the shipping cost (and on a product this heavy that is a substantial cost).After I posted my Amazon review a different (and much more helpful/responsive company rep contacted me and offered to get to the bottom of things. I emailed them pictures of the damaged packaging and product. They contacted the shipping company and had them pick it back up from my home (at no cost to me). Within 2 weeks they had delivered a new bookshelf. We put it together last night (it definitely takes 2 adults) and it is just as advertised. I am excited for my son to have this to use for several years. It holds a large quantity of books. I am pleased with the product.My only complaint is the quality of the casters. They are plastic (and this is a heavy shelf) and one of the locking mechanisms was broken off. However, the wheel still turns. I will probably end up replacing the casters with more heavy-duty ones, but these will do for now.I realize things go wrong and items get damaged in shipping. I was not upset with the situation until the company refused to address the problem and then tried to stick me with the cost of returning a product that arrived broken. I was also bothered that they even have a company policy to not replace items they send that are damaged. However, once the second company rep got involved, they took care of things in a very efficient manner. In the end, I was very pleased with how this company finally stepped up and made it right!

    HARD TO ASSEMBLE!!!Once the product is assembled, it is a joy to place all your children’s books on display! I am very technically inclined in terms of assembling things, but this was not fun. The instructions were straight forward, but not all the boards slide into the grooves properly (or stay in while you are assembling the rest) and if they are not in the grooves perfectly it is a nightmare completing the assembly after that point. Some of the pilot holes are not drilled properly and you can hear wood cracking as you go. And 3 of my screws did not bite into the pilot holes and continue to spin around which is highly frustrating. Getting the final end panel on was almost impossible to line up the screws with the pilot holes because it is easy for the shelf boards to come out of their groove and if that happens, then there is no way to maneuver the wood and line up the pilot holes. But backing out to start over is not an option either. Thankfully, you can access the inside of the triangular frame and I was able to gently maneuver some of the wooden panels to fit back into their slots and did eventually win the assembly battle! Overall, I am disappointed with the quality and durability as during the assembly it felt very fragile and the hardware would cause the wood to splinter. I have other ECR4Kids products and am pleased and expected better quality of this book display stand which was quite pricey. BUT on a good note…I will say that the idea of this stand is great. I like both sides being easily accessible by moving the stand which is on wheels. It fits a good amount of books on it. But of course there is a limitation to the thickness of the book. But now that my assembly nightmare is over, I am enjoying displaying all my child’s reading material.

    Assembly woesOverall it’s a nice stand and is now holding my music books,I gave it three stars because the fiber board pieces are brittle and several of the split during assembly.

    Some assembly difficulties, but works great now that it’s togetherI really love this shelf. We were able to fit nearly our entire picture book collection (50+ books). We got the double sided shelf with wheels. At first I was worried about putting the wheels on because I was worried my 3 year old would damage our walls and other furniture, but luckily with the books loaded he is not able to push it very fast and quickly lost interest in moving it around. I, however, enjoy the convenience of being able to move it around when necessary. Assembly was a bit of a pain, as the holes didn’t line up perfectly, but it still took less than an hour. I considered buying several other more expensive shelves, but this one had the largest capacity. The shelf doesn’t look like a really nice piece of furniture, but with the books loaded on I do think it is attractive anyways.

    A perfect gift idea from grandparents; a great idea for parents of young childrenBeautifully crafted and, with the help of a friend with a power tool to drive in the screws, easy to assemble.It’s a “grand slam home run” with our 2-year-old granddaughter who now has a wonderful library accessible to her when she visits with us (vs. piles of books). Her parents were moved almost to tears that we had thought of this. (It helped that my wife is a retired librarian so she could think of such a purchase).

    Not bad (if you have a good hex shape tool)I am no expert at putting things together, this took me about 2 hours. This can be done with one person but having another set of hands certainly will make things easier and faster. I’m actually happy with the product, its just as pictured and arrived with no defects. The reason I gave it 4 stars is because the screws are hex screws (hexagon shaped). Not a very popular screw in my opinion so unless you have a good handheld tool you can use with this type of screw, you are literally screwed using this dingy L shaped tool they provide you with. Luckily we did have a hex shaped handheld tool which was much easier on my hands. Also, read ALL papers on both sides. I thought some of the instructions were missing and ended up guessing the last 3 steps. Later on I saw that the last instructions were written on the same sheet that seemed more like a receipt.

    Looks good for the roomQuality is ok but compare to the previous one I had I preferred a thicker board. Overall is ok. Still look good. My kid love it!

    Holds lots of books! Look at the pictures…Holds more books than I thought! My boys are avid readers and as soon as they saw the book display they grabbed a couple of books and started reading. I read some books to them as well. Makes a big difference having books displayed. It makes you want to grab a book and read it! We have other ECR4KIDS products (cubicles) and are very happy with the quality and functionality. Now that we are going to homeschool because of COVID-19 and other reasons, these products are a must.
