This is the neatest piece of furniture I've seen yet! ...well, except it's only the second.
Things I like: -- The roll top feels like a real roll top, with a flimsy hood that has strips of wood attached. -- The two side drawers and writing tray are secured so they don't come out too easily. -- The chair can be pushed in so that it's almost flush if there isn't a doll in. -- Or, if the doll wants to sit at the desk, she can do so easily with her feet underneath and eveyrthing. -- The chair is a great shape and Beatrice has been able to sit in it no problem, whether she's tucked into the desk or not. -- It looks good from all sides.
Things I'm not as fond of: -- The handles on the roll top feel like they're going to break off if I tug on them too hard to open or close it. -- The roll top doesn't move smoothly, making me feel like I need to tug it. -- Overall, the scale is MUCH too small. Beatrice practically towers over the desk and I can't fit her books into one of the lower drawers, which I very much wish I could. -- It can't fold down or anything for storage, which means it's one of the bulkier pieces - not that any of the other desks do, either, but still.
For appearance, playability, and storage, I give it an A-. It's fantastic and I'm so glad I puchased it!
