After trying for 3 hours by myself, I then had my mother and my sister help for another 3 hours. This bed is impossible to assemble (unless you're a fmaily of octopus).You may be thinking that I must be an idiot. I assure you, I am no dumb-dumb. I have successfully put togther many pieces of furniture/toys, etc. throughout my life.... Ok, so WHY is it impossible to assemble this bed, you may ask..... You have to lay our 10 slats, insert little wood dowels into both ends of each slat, then fit the dowels on one end of the slats into precut holes along the left side rail. #Not too hard, yet#. But, then you must line up all of the dowels with the holes on the right side rail and slide them in... simultaneously... without the slats falling out of the left side rail. Once we had all the slats in on one side, they would just fall out when trying to line up and place the 2nd rail.It was impossible, I couldn't even believe I was reading the instructions correctly. This wouldn't even work in theory... I don't see how anyone of these other reviewers managed to put this bed together. Maybe they just work for the manufacturer, I don't know.... If anyone has any tips, let me know. Otherwise, this bed is being returned tomorrow! If I could put it together, I would be happy. It is a pretty color, seems like good quality. I was happy with the headborad and foot board - no problem there. I loved that it shipped for free, and made it to my house within days. But that didn't do any good in the end.... This is not how I expected to spend Christmas Eve. My daughter knew I was in her room building her new bed. It broke my heart when I eventually had to set up the playpen for her to sleep in... she was so excited to sleep in her new bed that she didn't even realize that her "new bed" was just the pack n play she sleeps in at grandma's house.
