My mother gave me the money to buy my son a toy box for his first birthday. I fell in love with this one online and had to have it. When my husband put it together it is alot smaller than they make it look, but that was not what disapointed me most. Once you install the safety hindge the lid only opens about halfway. and if the toy box gets shaken in the tiniest bit the lid comes down. Also the first day we had it my son opened it and couldn't get it opened far enough to get the toy he wanted. So he pushed up on the lid. The peice of wood that you affix the safety hindge to was only attached by glue ant two screws that barely even went into the wood. My one year old was able to rip that piece of wood off by just pushing on the lid. I deffinately would not recommend this product.
