Although the instructions are very easy to read I was bothered by the fact that the instructions left out where the long and short screws go. I'm not saying it wasn't a breeze to put together but I had to remove the four long screws from the top of the desk when I realised they should have been used for the legs.
I also think the clip that holds the paper onto the whiteboard could be a little stronger. I don't know if it's just the one I have and it won't be a problem when my son is older. But right now he's a very energetic artist and he tends to pull the paper out of the clip when he's drawing.
Other than that my son absolutely loves it and I think it will be great for him for a very long time.
The problem is that it really is for more of the 4+ age range. At the age of 2 my daughter was scared to sit on the stool because she would tip it over or slide off. And at least 3 small children have been smacked over the head by the 'flip table'.
My biggest issue with the age range is the storage. It is great, there is a LOT of storage, and I can't wait to use it. But if you have little kids (again, under 4ish) there is no way you can leave stuff in this desk. Markers? Scissors? Pens? All 2 feet off the ground for little hands to get whenever? No way. =D
Just something I thought people may want to keep in mind when looking at little desks!
