It looks cheaply made, IMO.

We had the Toy Story version and I hated it...only had it for like a month and got rid of it.

DS has a spongebob one that is similar style but it has 9 plastic bucket things and is pretty sturdy. Came with his room in a box set. I definitely wouldn't get that one..the fabric probably won't hold up for long.

We have a tinkerbell one & the big bin on the bottom is falling apart. After we move I'm buying cubbies like I have in my girls room.

No prob!! You should check out Big Lots if you have one near you..I've seen a pretty neat one there before. Maybe try your luck at consignment shops too? I got lucky with the one that came with DS's room in a box set lol...paid like 149 and it came with a toddler bed, the organizer and a "wooden" table + 2 chairs..the table only lasted like a year because DS would climb on it and the material that it was made out of stripped at the legs were the screw was..otherwise it was a great purchase lol..I think all the newer organizers are all that stupid fabric now though..super flimsy as well.

ive tried looking at once upon a child and craigslist but Im either too late or its just not what im looking for. I need something that has deeper containers. Thats why I was looking at the sesame street one the bottom containers seem to be deeper and my son is obsessed with elmo. But the fabric doesnt seem like it would be practical. I dont really want a toy box/chest bcuz I like things to be organized.

You could just get a small bookshelf and go to like dollar tree or something and buy plastic bins to line up in it..I wish I would have never gotten character themed stuff because of how quick kids change their minds about what they like.
