We got this for my daughter's 2nd birthday because she loves art. I was nervous about putting it together by myself, but it was so easy! I had to use an electric screwdriver for the first time, but it was together in about 15 minutes. The size of the desk is perfect for her. Sometimes she colors all over the desk and whiteboard, but it wipes off easily with a baby wipe. It seems very sturdy. We've had it for almost 2 months and have had no problems!
