The frame is poorly made. The ends of the rods in the cross brace are only tacked welded in place and they missed the end of one of them but it's made to a price. It's a bit rickety and so I wouldn't think it would suit a child, they would probably need something sturdier. It doesn't adjust low enough to suit me sitting in the lounge chair so I sit on a cushion but I had one so that's OK. The castors are a bit too small so even with its light weight, it doesn't move easily on the carpet but having said all that, it does the job and is much better than things on my knee so I'm happy.
