JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA -- My daughter has had this set since she was 3 years old, and now she is 8 1/2. We have the sleigh bed, nightstand, chest of drawers, and blanket chest (which we use for toys). I am starting to see some signs of wear on the edges of her nightstand, but for the most part, the furniture still looks very nice, and my daughter is one who is hard on things! Also, no problems with drawers falling apart, etc. To the people who complain, I would say, "You get what you pay for!" If you want super-high quality furniture, buy it! But for the cost, I think this furniture is a good value for the money for a little kid. We did not buy our set through Ashley's showcase store, but through a discount furniture supplier who got deliveries from Ashley.
It was cheaper doing it this way, but I still don't think their in-store prices are too bad . . . I plan on getting at least 3 more years out of this furniture!
