Rated 5 out of 5 by Serene Great for the Price!
This is a really good buy if you are looking for something inexpensive that still has the look and feel of something a that costs a lot more! I ordered the headboard and the bed together, and am just thrilled with the results. My only gripe is that the bed arrived well packaged from the manufacturer, and all the parts were there- but no assembly instructions - though it was fairly simple to figure out which parts went together, and what hardware to use. I put both peices together by myself in just under an hour! All in all I am pleased and my son loves it!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Flyible Good product overall
We purchased the 4 piece bedroom set seperately, as we wanted the 6 drawer dresser not the 5 drawer dresser which was included in the set online-this was a good choice as the 6 drawer is really nice. We had read another review that the 5 drawer dresser was top heavy and could fall over if not strapped to wall, not good for our 3 year old. Each piece went together quickly and easily. Instructions were clear and there were no missing pieces-extra actaully. My recommendation is to be somewhat handy & have a large bottle of Gorilla Wood Glue and a several hours to put together a full set. Dresser had the most pieces, and it took well over 3 hours to put together. I am particular and glued all the edges of each drawer, so they won't fall apart after my son opens and closes them repeatedly. I also glued every dowel and edge of most pieces when assembling-made a big difference in final feel of product. The material is partical board MDF with a thin blue laminate top glued to it. Not real wood surface, but looks really nice with the blue finish. Be prepared that the boxes are very heavy. I was satisified with the construction and solid feel of the pieces when completed. The top to the dressser came with a large ding and the crown piece on the headboard was also damaged upon unpacking. Contacted South Shore and they shipped replacements right out. Walmart does not carry the mirror to the 6 drawer, but South Shore Direct does and it shipped for free. The bed frame is a little larger than the twin matress, and there are edges exposed which could cut or rub a child if they slid out of bed. A comforter cover would prevent this. Overall would recommend this furniture, great price and good quality.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ChoozEMom Excellent value and style
I was hesitant about buying furniture but I am in love with this! The storage is wonderful and it was super easy to assemble. My sister bought a similar MUCH higher priced item from an upscale retailer and we have been hard pressed to find any differences. I definitely recommend this for those who want style, quality, and practical.
Rated 5 out of 5 by bbtandc Much better then expected
We bought two beds, one for my 8-yr-old and the other for my 16-yr-old. I was a little worried how they would hold up to two rough and tumble boys but they've been awesome! The drawers are roomier then I thought they'd be too! I liked being able to track the shipping so closely and they arrived faster then expected. A great experience all around, would definitely buy again!
Rated 4 out of 5 by MDLadyE Great Purchase For The Price
I purchased this bed for my 7 year old son. Overall, I love the bed and the storage feature. My only dislike is that it only fits a mattress and not a box spring/mattress set. I purchased a twin mattress set (it was on sale and cheaper than just purchasing a mattress at the time) but the mattress slides. Maybe if I use the bed properly it wouldn't be an issue I suppose. LoL
I also love this bed all around. I am a single mother with a 1 bedroom apartment and I needed to get my son out of my bed and this bed fit perfectly.
Setup: It took me two hours to put up the bed by myself but that's with a 7 year old asking 101 questions and me watching Lifetime. Assembly wasn't hard at all; I looked at the pictures to complete assembly as the reading material that they called “instructions,” were not very helpful.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ShoppinMama99 This is a great piece of furniture for the money! I purchased South Shore items a couple years ago but couldn't find the mate's bed in the same finish. This blueberry color coordinates very nicely with my son's other furniture. The bed was very easy to put together and looks great. I ended up ordering a matching chest of drawers. The only drawback to the mates bed are the depth of the drawers but for smaller things(t-shirts, socks, etc), they're fine.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Ej2sweet Great for transitioning.
This is a product that you have to put together from the ground up - but with hubby along for the ride and following the directions it took about 75 minutes. It is quite heavy to lift so you need a partner for sure, the drawers and the drawer knobs are not the greatest quality but it is pressed board (that looks great put together) so keep that in mind. Overall it is a good bed and has just survived a military move so that gives it at least an A- in my book!
Looks good when in place though and I have just recently ordered headboard and nightstand to go with it!
Rated 2 out of 5 Cheap price, but cheap quality too
I purchased this bed in November of 2008 and was very pleased of how easy it was to put together, the way it looked and for the price. However, it didn't take long (7 months) for the drawers to fall apart! I have already repaired 2 of the 3 drawers, but one I repaired so many times that nothing can help it. Be aware the drawers are made of pressboard, so if your child "pulls" too hard on the drawers or has too many clothes in his/her drawers they will fall apart. The bed/mattress is awesome, but the quality of the drawers are not. I am now in search of yet another bed for him and I will not put a cheap price in front of the quality. If you want a sturdy bed with good pull out drawers to last a long time. Do not buy this bed! I am only glad I didnt invest in the dresser or the night stand.
Rated 5 out of 5 by MzMuffin At first i was a little disappointed because i thought the neadboard came with the beds from the picture i had seen of the beds. But overall i'm very pleased with my purchase they were very easy to put together the directions very very helpful and straight to the point.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Heidiho1988 Love love love!
My son loves this bed! As do I. I love the drawers underneth. Really saves room in his room not having to have a dresser. The color is so rustic like. Assembly was pretty easy as well.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Bibinka Not as sturdy as I expected
I guess for the price you get what you pay for. This is my toddler's big boy bed and my husband and I are hesitant to lay on it with him because it kinda feels a little unsturdy for an adult. But I guess you do get what you pay for and for the money that we spent I'm sure it will do just fine for a few years. I do love the color. The drawers bottoms are very flimsy.
Rated 2 out of 5 by grammyksmall disapointed
I never got to use this product because it was broken in half when it arrived at the store. It came in a 6ft box that didn't have much reinforcement, it was place on a 2ft flat cart, that caused it to bend and break. From what i saw in the box it may have been nice except for the drawer bottoms which were made of heavy duty cardboard.
Rated 4 out of 5 by CausiousSpender Beautiful & Sturdy!!
Did not want to spend a fortune on a bed for my 8yr old son (who can be very rough w/his things), but I didn't want to buy just because it was cheap either, this had to last. I was concerned about the quality of the materials, but it's actually very well put together & solid. One of the drawers was a little scuffed near the edge but I sanded it smooth. We glued all edges before putting together for added strength-esp the drawers. My son definitely is getting a better nite's sleep in this platform-type bed, no more tossing & turning. He even commented on the difference(compared to his metal frame bed). I'm pleasantly surprised the finish & the drawers are still in tact- he keeps all of his favorite little gadgets/toys/books in there, making the room clutter-free in a snap! The blue color is a nice accent color in the room,you can use any other wood-toned pieces with it & do nautical theme,sports,red/white/blue, etc.
Rated 4 out of 5 by LIMan Quite Handsome!
The bed and headboard were easy to assemble and the blue color is very nice, but some of the pieces were damaged and the draw pulls need a bit better design. Overall the piece is nice and my son really likes it. Great for the money.
Pros: no smells, all wood items were marked and there were some extra pieces
Con: even with the tough packaging two items were damaged and the draw pulls should have been solid as they tend to pull off the screw when you pull them. Needed to make a modification.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Skiman101 For the parents
This bed is as good a value as it gets for the money. It is particle wood and not solid wood. Assembly is required but, not that difficult. I would buy it again. I don't think it would hold up as long but, with my millwork background, I assembled mine using a very good quality wood glue as I went. This will greatly extend the life of this product. Just be certain you have the right piece in the right place before you glue! It will take two adults to put this together. It is a good bargain!
Rated 4 out of 5 by DebLa Beautiful Bedroom Set!
The furniture is beautiful with the black over the dark blue - the furniture appears distressed. My only disappointment is that a piece of the bed is cracked and had to be glued together. We do not know if this will hold and will call the manufacturer to see if this piece can be replaced.
Rated 2 out of 5 by jmom32244 cheap made
when I picked up this item site to store, the box was severley damaged, and when we unpacked it at home, there were many damaged and broken pieces and the foam pieces inside meant to protect the product, was in a million pieces and was all over the bed so my daughter and I had to clean every piece as well as vacuum my entire livingroom floor, it is not a very good piece of furniture. thumbs down!!!
very difficult to put together, took 4 hours
Rated 1 out of 5 by renabsmith BUSTED!!
We pulled the materials out of the box to find 3 peice broken all tho peices! The bed may have been a good bed if it weren't broken.
Rated 1 out of 5 by bedroom After driving to Walmart, going inside the store to pay for the item and driving around to the loading dock the product was brought out visibly damaged. The stock persons used a fork lift and a cart to bring out the bed, the uneven balance and the weight from the item probably contributed to the wood of the bed being split. My husband asked them to open the carton as the box was also damaged. At that time he inspected the bed and found it also to be damaged. He then had to drive back around to the front of the store, go back in and get a refund on the item.
Rated 4 out of 5 by 75Issa Great Bed!
The bed is great. My daughter loves it. The instructions for assembly weren't very good, but it wasn't difficult to figure out.
Good value for the price.
Rated 3 out of 5 by KBEZ Ok product....
This was for my 7 yr old boy who that the blue color was cool and so did I. So glad it wasnt electric blue (too obnixous). The shipping is the most ridiculous part. The package was complete beat up, hole in the box crushed packaging on the inside; just a total mess. Also, the directions were very confusing. My wife tried to put this together while I was at work and couldn't get it work.
Rated 4 out of 5 by countryrose24 Ok i order this for my 3 year old son,we are a family on a budget and i wanted to get my son a bedroom suite. so i decided i would order one peice at a time because we couldnt afford the whole suite at once. Walmart is a place that we could do that. We got the free to store shipping and it only took a week to come in i was glad for that. (fyi this bed comes in pieces you have to put every bit of it togeather)Well a couple days went by and my husband had still not put it togeather so i decided to put it togeather myself! It took me a good 3 hours to put it all togeather(i did have a little 3 year old helper;))the hardest thing was the drawers it was a kind of a pain but not to bad.Now based on all other reviews that this is will not be a bed you could have for many years, so i deciede while at walmart to pick the bed up i would buy some real good wood glue(about $6) and i used that in all the places that i could and i really believe that its going to make this bed last alot longer if i havent you use the glue for $6 to make a good priced bed last alot longer i dont see why someone wouldnt spend a little extra! So if you are on a budget and is wanting a bedroom suite or just the bed i would recommend this bed!!P.S did not by the head board so dont know about it

This bed is awesome. My son loves it. It was easy to put together thanks to great instructions.
Rated 5 out of 5 by DaniM Great Storage Bed!
I love this bed, I love the set acually. I got the 6 draw dresser and night stand to match and everything from the color down to durablity mets my expectations. The bed gives you great storage with the three draws, I also used the empty spots behind the draws before you put down board and mattress. I used for summer clothes and things that dont get taken out often. I had a little problem when we tried setting up bed..they sent 2 identical peices for the ends so it would go 2gether that way, so basically i was missing a peice for the end. The customer support was great tho and sent me the peice i needed hassel free. Didnt even ask for the xtra piece i received. They promised the replacement within 10 bussiness days and I received in 9! Love this set!!
Rated 4 out of 5 HOURS to assemble, fake wood, crumby finish
About a thousand steps to assemble with less than clear instructions but we got it done. The wood is that fake pressboard stuff. Stuff on the inside doesn't match which isn't a really big deal but it would be nice if you were told that in the description. The finish is junk. Very thinly put on and lots of scratches right out the box. It's our 2 year old's first bed so I guess it will do but for the money I spent I expected more.
Rated 4 out of 5 by ruralshopper97 This product went together fairly easy. i was disappointed in the strength of the boards that make the box top.
Rated 4 out of 5 by KarBer716 Better than Expected for the Price!
This product was bought as a first time bed for a 3 year old. It is actually a great value for the price. Assembly was quick and easy and the bed is extremely sturdy. The color is a very nice shade of blue. (We also bought the headboard to match- cute!)
The only complaint is that the drawers are a bit shallow and quite "flimsy". Utilizing the site to store shipping - really saves on shipping fees as well.
Overall a great bed for the price! I would recommend this bed to a friend.
Rated 5 out of 5 by countrymomma83 Great for the Price
was a little concerned when i purchased because of other bad reviews, but glad i did. easy assembly (take some time, like 3 hours each). when we received the beds (we bought 2) and dresser, 2 pieces were slightly damage. I called the customer service line and they sent my replacements parts at no charge in a timely manner and they were very helpful and polite. the bed comes with boards that completely support the bed (not just slats). works great with bunk bed mattresses. love the color! it is just as described.
