My wife and I have very modern taste, because of this there is almost always a large price tag associated with this. We were almost ready to purchase a dresser/changer combo from Netto (Oeuf and Room & Board were also on the list) when we discover this Baby Mod set. We decided to give it a try, and must say, we are impressed with the quality for the price.
The top, base, and sides are a good MDF with an amber veneer finish. The drawer faces are also the same MDF with a good laquer paint finish. The drawer frames are a solid pine wood. Pine is a soft wood, so it is a little lighter, but none the less it is solid wood. The base of the drawers is the typical 1/4" fiber board (like a very heavy & durable cardboard). I ended up using wood glue and glued the base into the frame for a little added support, and would recommend anyone else do the same.
I found 2 minor negatives. The first is that the changer tray was designed to rest directly on the top of the dresser. If you're planning to take the changer off as your child ages, I highly recommend getting silicon pads ($2 to $3 at any home improvement store) to keep from scratching up the top of the dresser. The second negative was the inner dimensions of the changing tray measured 16 1/4" by 31 1/2". All of the contoured changing pads I found measure in at 16" x 32". I ended up purchasing the Sealy pad ($25) and it fits fine, just a bit snug in the longer direction.
If you want a dresser that will take your child to their College days, I would highly recommend spending more money as this might not cut it. If you're looking for something to last 5 years (or so) I think this is an excellent choice for the money.
