after putting this together, my husband said to give it 3 stars. i'll repeat what other people have said: don't unwrap anything before you need it because some things aren't marked on the pieces, read the directions carefully, be careful with the plastic pieces that snap above the bars. the plastic pieces are HARD to get in-they DO NOT just "snap in" as the directions say. my husband got out pliers, bent the piece a little, put one side in and then had to use the pliers to get the other side in. there are 88 of those for EACH bed--took forever! also, just be careful when putting things together. we were reading directions and watching what we were doing and still ended up putting one rail on upside down, which of course you don't realize until the end when you put the ladder on. the rails aren't marked top/bottom but there is only one side with the extra hole for the ladder. because my husband is a perfectionist, he took stuff apart, including taking out 44 of the plastic tabs, and switched it, but i would have just gotten out the drill and made a new hole. anyway, after all that, he said it's only a 3 star bed. i am giving it 4 stars though because our kids love it! it's very sturdy and seems very safe. we are going to put something around the ladder rungs as they hurt our daughters feet a little, but other then that they are thrilled with their new beds and i like that i can sit on the bottom bunk to read a book at bedtime and make the bed without hitting my head because there is a lot of space between the beds. we're very happy with it (now that it's together)!
