I actually found this product cheaper at a local store, but I still think this is a great price. It was easy to assemble and seems to be sturdy. I have a very active 2 year old boy who throws the lid off. Cons: the lid does come off easy, but I can understand why based on the design. I am actually thinking of buying this as a gift for my neice.

My sister in law bought it as a gift for my five year old. I had planned to use it for him to sit at to do homework, but it is so small! It's also not too sturdy,the lid falls down,and the stool isn't very comfortable. My son usually prefers sitting on the floor in front of it anyway. He does enjoy hiding his supplies in the desk, so that's a plus. If you buy it I would recommend using it for a toddler to sit at and scribble/color.

Comments about American Plastic Toys, Inc. 1011097 My Very Own Desk and Easel:
Got this as a gift, was excited that our son, almost 4 would have a desk like daddy. It has been such a pain to put together. It is currently half finished, and sitting in the corner. I had to take a break.The instructions are terrible, no words, only pictures. And so its a guess, and hope you are right type of assembly. I am usually really good with things that need assembly. But this is for the birds!It's not good quality, and it's small. Box says 2+ years, online it says 3+ years. I definitly would say it's for a 2+ year age range. So its (unfortunately) too small for my son. I'm debating keeping it....
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This is a great product for my toddlers

About Me Quality Oriented
My kids and I love this product. My now three year old has had this desk since she was one. She uses it to color in her coloring books and to do her work. At three, because she is so tall for her age, I have to get a replacement to accommodate her legs. However, my one year old can now use it because there really isn't any damage to the product. Yes the desk part can be removed from the legs of the table, but once I hook the table and the legs together, she has no problems with the desk falling off while she is using it. You have to hook them together on the hooks so they stay together. My daughter works with the laptop on this desk with no problems. Hope this helps.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
cute but it needs some improvements
I bought this for my 18 month old girl, is the perfect size for her, and she love it, but the top part keeps falling... It needs some improvements with that. Is not very sturdy, I guess for little kids is Ok.

Not Worth the price
I'm glad i bought this desk at a yard sale for 5 dollars because if i would of bought it new i would return it.. my son love it the only problem is that the top part always falls out there should be something to clip it on so it can stay on its really cheaply made.
Not the best design
By Meme to Izzie
Bought for my granddaughter's 1st birthday. Although it's the perfect size for her, I'm not totally thrilled with the product. The desk's lid that transforms from being just that, the desk's lid/top/writing area, to the easel, is not attached at all to the desk body/base. Whenever the desk is even ever-so-slightly jarred, the desk top falls off. I think this is a bad design flaw. Otherwise, this product is what I wanted and expected.

This is not worth buying, it's not durable, sturdy or anything. Every time we walk by it, it falls apart. I wish I would have kept the box so I could take it back. It's cheap and I don't like it at all. My little boy can't even set at it a color for the top part sliding off!!!!!!!!

Purchased at a different store for $20, for my 3 year old. Not worth more than $10. Easel falls down easily. Desktop/easel pop off when you switch from one to the other. Chair has to be held when sitting it moves on non-carpeted floors. When using the easel, the clip doesn't hold a paper well when they paint or draw downward. GREAT idea, but poorly made.
good for the price and age range

Great for my two year old. It was the perfect size for his age,ajdusts from desk to easel easily, but did not have a holder for paints or crayons. Other than that He loves it.
Piece of junk
Put this together for my son. He loves it. But it's cheap plastic, the top doesn't stay on, and it's constantly falling apart. If I could, I'd throw it away. But since he loves it, I at least have to wait to get a replacement. Don't BOTHER with this one. It's the worst toy I've ever seen.
not very good
