Great, but hard to put together

The Storyteller is beautiful - it's the perfect size for a bedroom, and creates a wonderful area for children to play creatively. I took a star off only because the instructions to put it together were absolutely horrendous! I'm not sure how the other reviewers found it "easy". We are dab hands at putting together complex flat pack furniture, but this was a nightmare. Nothing was clearly labelled, and we had to do a lot of unscrewing and putting back together until we got it right. Ultimately that doesn't matter, it's worth it for a great product that is very sturdy (our 3 year old has been trying to climb it, and honestly it's been totally fine. While it's not climbing equipment, it's so well made that it comfortably holds the weight of my husband).

Such a wonderful product!

We bought the Storyteller Playstand for my son's first birthday & we absolutely love it! Like all of the Moov Baby products, the quality is amazing. It's such a beautiful piece & we can't wait to see all of the ways our son plays with it over the years to come.
