Don't do it!!!
I purchased this item without looking at the reviews first. That's the last time I do that! I like good deals and thought this was a great price for a chest, I also thought this item looked very nice in the picture, however when we received the product, first, it took more than 3 hours to assemble (IKEA assembly is a piece of cake in comparison), second the quality is horrible (pieces started to chip during assembly) and last, little by little it is falling apart more and more. I purchased this item in Jan. '14 for my baby's room (due in June), so far all I've used it for is to store her clothes, and things continue to fall apart! While placing her clothes inside a drawer, the bottom of the drawer broke. While walking in the room, my foot ran into the bottom of the chest and a piece fell off, a drawer has trouble closing, the top of the chest has a yellow hue to it, and the right side of the chest is not aligned with the rest of the chest and is chipping in several places. Honestly, I am not a picky person when it comes to furniture, but this is just a piece of garbage. I am writing this review to save you from going through the same thing I did!

Love this in my daughter's bedroom!
I ordered this chest for my 3-year-old's bedroom. As expected, the pieces are made of particle board and has plastic dowels and gliders, but this seems like a well-made, sturdy piece of furniture. It looks great in her bedroom. It came with a simple anti-tip bracket which I would recommend using, as without it the piece seems a bit unsteady. It did take several hours to assemble on my own, but instructions were simple, easy to follow, and included illustrations.
I would've given five stars, however on all four of the drawers, the holes did not line up properly with the adjacent hardware, making it quite tedious to get the screws through. If not for that, assembly would've taken much less time.
Overall, a beautiful, sturdy piece of furniture which I would purchase again.

Cheap Plastic stay away
I'm only giving a 2 star cause on the outside it is a cute dresser. I wish I woulda read reviews. This is the worst dresser I have ever bought. I understand you get what you pay for but I've ordered other brands and they were not this cheaply constructive. Let's just say everything you use to put it together is plastic besides the screws. The brackets to the drawers are plastic the bottom decorative piece snaps in with a plastic bracket. Not only is it plastic but they make you use a hammer on the plastic parts which was almost a disaster. It's the lightest dresser in weight I've ever bought. With no drawers I carried it myself to my baby's room and it was light. I can't see this lasting long. Definitely NOT worth $175. I've bought quite a few Sauder brand dresser and book shelf and everything is metal and the pieces are heavy and sturdy.

Kind of disappointed
Looks and feels pretty sturdy, the only complaints I have about it, is that 1) they don't supply the tools (I have my own so it didn't matter) 2)screws aren't uniformed (had to use 6 diff bits for the same screws) 3)***some of the wood parts came chipped or kind of warped***, but I don't have time to return it or wait for new parts to come in, since my kid is due on 03/19/16. I did accidentally order two and YES BOTH of them came damaged in the same spot. There was hardly any visible damage to the packaging, so it's a problem within the manufacturer or people packaging the items.

... have also revised the nightstand which I gave much better reviews than this
Ok I have also revised the nightstand which I gave much better reviews than this. The furniture is ok it suits its purposes but. It was a bear to assemble. also the hardware for the drawer gliders was cheap plastic. On the previously reviewed nigh stand the drawer hardware was metal, but not on this. The drawers were difficult to get into the chest once assembled. The final product looks and functions ok but it was not a easy assembly and hardware is cheap. Most of the hardware was not well marked, although the drawer hardware was individually packaged which was nice. For the price it is ok but after putting together the night stand I had higher expectations.

Not fun to put together
I've put together lots of pieces of furniture in my adult life, and this was by far the most frustrating piece I've had to put together. I didn't expect the piece to be the highest quality given the price. It is all particle board and plastic. There are hundreds of pieces for these shelves. The instructions are horrible, not because they are incorrect, but because they are very difficult to read (very lightly printed with tiny graphics). But the worst part is that the pieces were manufactured with very poor precision... things just did not fit together. Between dealing with the poor precision and large number of steps to build this piece, it took me quite a while to put together, and I am an engineer. After I put it together I came back to 2DayDeliver to look at why the reviews had been so good for this product: it's because a bunch of people gave it 5 stars who did not actually put it together! So please be aware that this thing is a nightmare to construct and don't buy this for your husband (or wife or someone else) to put together! That's just mean.

Was hoping for a little better quality piece for the money
This thing is a bear to assemble. Think IKEA with a mean streak. Whoever designed the drawers was a SADIST! Very difficult to screw in the sides, as the screws only leave less than an inch clearance for your hand/screwdriver. My hands are still sore a day later! The runners for the drawers are plastic. They seem to work well, but I'm not sure how they will fare in the long run. This piece is quite heavy once assembled. Made from "engineered wood". Durability overall will likely be an issue. Was hoping for a little better quality piece for the money. On the plus side, my granddaughter LOVES it!

I loved them and they were cheap
I just bought this chest AGAIN because bought this one along with the door chest and diaper changer in 2013. I loved them and they were cheap. The only downfall is that the bottom part comes off easily when u open the bottom drawers. Quick fix though just glue it and it's perfect. This new one however, is an upgraded version and I hate it. It is more lose. Not as solid and I only have 2 weeks with it and the drawers came apart right away. One of them broke when my son was trying to get a shirt. The old version. Is awesome. The new one I hate.

We just received this unit. My husband (an engineer) put it together fine, although it took some time. He explained that it's just designed very poorly in the way it needs to be assembled. Also, the screws are too short for the drawers so the knobs are loose which is a real disappointment. To make this unit function, we'd have to get longer screws. It looks nice, it's cute and goes with our changing station...however, another big disappointment is that the unit was delivered with a terrible flaw on the front drawer. When you buy something new and white, the last thing you want to see are visible scratches on the paint, in the front.
I've called 2DayDeliver about this problem and simply asked if South Shore would mind sending us a replacement drawer without the scratch. 2DayDeliver tells me now they no longer carry this item in stock! So, now we're on our own?! And, we just purchased this chest two weeks ago. :(

Wow...just wow! This is one of the best deals I have run across on 2DayDeliver. I paid $131 last week and got it shipped for free with Prime and had it in hand in 5 days. First off, if you have trouble putting this together you should not be left alone. The assembly took me one and half hours by myself and it was the simpliest piece of furniture I have ever put together. Yes...it is true the dowels and drawer guides are plastic but this is an under $150 dresser. The quality is very close to furniture I purchased from Ashley years ago that was 5 times the cost. I don't expect this furniture to last until my 4 year moves out but it might. Several reviewers said this was throw away furniture for their babies...I don't see that at all. As you can tell, I am very happy with this purchase. I also ordered the matching nightstand that just arrived so I will put it together as soon as I get home. Thank you 2DayDeliver!
