My son and I had fun putting this together. It is sturdy and ideal for his needs. The top chipped when one of the legs we were taking out of the box, slipped and struck it...DOH!!!! But we coloured it in with a black marker and no worries .. just be careful as you take everything out of the box, as it is packed in tight. It’s a good gamers desk. My son enjoys the mouse pad it came with, too.
