but definitely could be better engineered. Based on a review and the images
This isn't a 'bad' product, but definitely could be better engineered. Based on a review and the images, it gives the impression that the top of the table can slide shut. This isn't the case. When assembling the unit, you must decide whether you want the slot in the middle to be open, or if you want it closed. It's essentially a permanent decision - yes, you can take it apart and adjust it, but it cant't be done on the fly or without completely disassembling the table.
The good news is this thing is basically idiot proof to put together. The hardware and instructions require no skill whatsoever. I had it put together in about 20 minutes.
The quality of hardware is decent, the laminate board is satisfactory. Packaging however did not hold up well and one corner of a board did get crushed and cracked in shipment. This thing isn't light, so don't expect to be able to lug this around without some help. Once assembled it is more manageable.
Overall, I still like the general design and functionality of this product. The toy box offers decent storage, and allows the table top to remain open and usable for play, stacking more toys, or additional storage while still having the toy box accessible without clearing off the table top.
That said, given the damage in shipment, and somewhat dishonest representation of the top sliding open and shut, there is room for improvement on this product.

Great craft and play table
This thing is enormous! I wasn't expecting it to be so massive. I set it up about a month or 2 after it arrived so it was passed the return date. I considered throwing out a piece of older furniture to keep this one because it did not fit. Ultimately I rearranged the entire room to make this thing fit and now I love it. The toy bin is the only thing big enough to hold the big stuffed animals that are usually just lying around and out of place. The table top is big enough to hold the race track and still have just over half the table clear. One side is definitely long enough for 2 children to sit comfortably side by side, so i have mine up against the wall. This table really is massive so check the features before you buy. I went with the photo and got a big surprise.

Easy to clean when he draws on the top
Kiddo loves it. Easy to clean when he draws on the top. Also easy to put together by myself. If you have any experience putting together Ikea furniture, this is a breeze, easier to assemble than most Ikea stuff. Only minor complaint is the drawer/toy box doesn't slide well on carpet. Thinking about getting one of those things we have in the office that the chairs slide around on and that should fix the issue. Larger wheels would have been nice.

Product delivers except for some minor cosmetic issues due to shipping.
I configured the table without the pocket in the middle. Storage bin is fairly large and table at just the right height for my 4year old. Only negative was some cosmetic damages to pieces when it arrived. I contacted the manufacturer and was told they would ship out replacement parts. After a week I contacted them to find out status an was told there was a delay and they would just send me a complete new unit. This one too had some internal shipping damages with most being cosmetic. So received two tables with one being 98% perfect after some reassembling and alittle glue and paint from me and the other at about 90%. Asides from the minor cosmetic damages that I only harp on due to costs of products, the unit does provide a nice play top and some decent storage.

I would recommend this.
Works well as a desk and toy storage. My daughter has had rolled the toy chest over her foot a few times or pushed the chest too far. I would recommend this.

Very good - would definitely recommend it 👍🏻
Very nice table. Our 4 year daughter loves it and spends hours drawing and painting. Good materials, it takes a little more than expected to assemble it but this is just the first day so not a big deal !!.

Very disappointed in this
Very disappointed in this. The pieces to not fit together securely at all. Everything is wonky and is not flush no many times I take it a part to secure each piece. A child standing on this a couple of times and I believe it would fall apart. Huge waste of time putting this together and wrestling with this. The drawer has tiny rollers that will only roll on a hard surface...not on a rug or carpet.
