I have tried several products for my Sunday School class for their papers. We also spend a few weekends on special crafts for Mother's Day etc. and it is perfect for them to sit in and dry. and the perfect height for a table. Would recommend for any age. Good qulity and durable.

This product is terrible! I am a long time supporter of Oriental Trading, but this is not their best work. There was no directions, I seriously have no idea how to put it together and some of it came ripped. What a waste of classroom money.

Not what I was expecting
This item is much taller than anticipated and the item fell apart while being assembled. I reattached the pieces using a hot glue gun & packing tape.

Worse Product ever
I bought this mail sorter for my daycare to use for the parent's sign in sheets. Received it on Friday and put it together on Saturday. It was a big disappointment. The slots were crooked and didn't line up well, I got frustrated after about an hour trying to put it together. I hated it and threw it in the garbage. Wasted 27,00

I really want to like it!!
I bought this for our homeschool classroom. LOVE the colors. wish it was a little taller, but that's a personal preference. it works well for handing in papers and drying art work. the directions only tell you how to put together 11 instead of 12 shelves, plus it doesn't tell you how to do the top/bottom clearly (the TOP top folds down and then the 1st shelf goes there, locking both the top and the first shelf together). also, the sides of the top/bottom need to be folded in to 4 of the shelves, also neglected in the instructions. unfortunately, i had some tears in the project, and after putting it mostly together and taking it apart 3 times, i ended up with some rips down the front panels. the directions are very poor - if you're not mechanically inclined, do NOT get this product! HOWEVER, i MAY get a second one, but only becuase i have figured out how to put it together properly!!!

Not A Solid Product
For the price paid for this the quality was absolutely horrible. After we put it together, we had to use some packaging tape to hold it into place. My sister is a school teacher and if she absolutely did not need this, I would have sent this back.

Should have known better. Anything made out of card board can't be of quality. This product was difficult to put together and very flimsy. Would not recommend.

Colorful shelf unit
I really like the colorful design. It looks like it will be sturdy enough for my use to hold colored copy paper but don't know about students using it on a daily basis. It wasn't as easy to put together as I expected. The front edge tore a bit where each divider tab folded down. Also, there was one extra shelf. I tried to figure out where it belonged and thought maybe at the top, since the top shelf would have no hanging label without it but I'm sure it wouldn't fit and upon looking at the picture online, there are 12 spaces but only 11 shelves however the picture with the instructions shows a hanging tab label. I don't need hanging labels tabs so thats ok but the inside of the unit has raw cardboard showing inside the top shelf. I can live with that. I'm expecting to have to eventually have to use some sturdy packing tape on the edges that have little tears. I've had other similar shelf units from a different vender that was put together in a more sturdy way. Hope this one holds up.

I will be using the sorter in my Sunday School classroom this year. It will come in handy. The problem was there were no instructions in the box. It took most of the afternoon to put it together. We had to stable it to make it work!
