So I had one of those cheap 4 drawer dressers that you get from Amazon, Kohls, Walmart or Target fall apart, this is your typical white or black particle board based dresser that you typically use in a kids or guest room. I wanted to replace it with something a little more functional, lighter and more specifically fit within a tight space. I searched on Amazon and took a chance on the YUTING 4-Drawer Plastic Storage Organizer and was impressed enough I thought it worth a review to share my thoughts.
First, this is a fully plastic 6 drawer dresser system (4 drawers are 23″ wide and 2 are half size at top shelf). The two half drawers at the top can be locked with a key, but as the entire system is plastic this is only a minor deterrent for maybe little kids if you wanted to hide stuff in the top drawers, maybe to lock away some toys during a timeout or something I don’t have any reason to ever use the locks on the top. They work fine, it is just with a plastic dresser it isn’t sturdy enough to be a true protection type of locked drawer.
Assembly was easy and no tools are required at all, everything snaps together and quite securely in fact. One thing to remember is to make sure the cosmetic back plates are properly attached while you assemble, I accidentally forgot to put the back on and it was very difficult to try and get this thing separated once it is put together. It is very secure for plastic, far more than those cheap plastic dressers you find at Home Depot or Lowes that use tubes for the corners. This thing is nearly as sturdy as a wooden dresser, and the top with the double drawer is sturdy enough to support 50 pounds of weight. Plus the thing has rollers so you can make it portable or not install the wheels to leave it fixed.
So for a kids room, this makes a great dresser because the containers are actually one whole piece except for the front with handle, this means they can’t stuff too many clothes into a drawer and break it. Which is what happened with particle board dressers that got overstuffed until the staples/boards started separating and crumbling apart. Overall I have not used it for very long yet, so will update the post and review with durability tests when I learn more, but I am very satisfied with this product so far and even have very heavy printer on the top of it as seen in the picture.
The company offers 5 different options for the drawer style with the cheapest being $99.99 and some suiting younger kids vs being more generic. For about the same price as a cheap particle board dresser I found the plastic quality to be good, durable and this to be a much lighter and easier option. I was able to hold all of the clothes for my 14 year old and 11 year old without issue in the 6 total drawers.
