Very pleased! The wide learning tower is plenty big enough for both kids at the counter. They even included a drill bit as well as the alan wrench, so I was able to put it together pretty quickly. Shipped UPS, box had a couple good dings, but was packed well enough that it didn't matter. Would recommend and we'll probably look here first as our needs evolve.
Very sturdy. My baby enjoys climbing on his triangle, and I think it is a great tool to help encourage climbing!
Upon first seeing the balance beam, my little toddler baby exclaimed, “big puzzle!” and after we put that big puzzle together, I walked on it showing the use as a balance beam. Probably confused my little one, but it’s now considered a big puzzle that can be walked on!
There are two slight imperfections, one of which kind of concerns me, but not very much. A portion of edging on one of the boards wasn’t sanded as smoothly as the others, and a small section where it wasn’t sanded smooth had a pokey piece of loose wood which I peeled away, so now it’s better but not as smooth as the edges of the other boards. I am hoping the edge doesn’t catch on anything causing the piece that’s not flush with the board to become loose and peel away.
And of less importance, merely affecting appearance, one board has an indentation where something may have been dropped on it.
Those two minor imperfections aside, my baby and I are enjoying our new big puzzle balance beam! I was contemplating buying more boards to add to it, but four are more than enough to start out with using.
Side note: before ordering, I contacted customer service and received some of the best, thorough and kind responses I’ve ever received from any company, on any matter. The quality of communication made my decision to place my first order with them an easy one. Now I am planning my next order!
Thank you for the thoughtful and in depth review! We're pleased to hear that although there was some damage to your beam, that the overall experience has been an A+. :)
While we appreciate you not making a big deal of the imperfections, smooth edges are something that we pride ourselves over and we apologize for missing some on your balance beam. Please email us at email@example.com with your order number, a description of the items damaged, and any relevant photos so that we can get replacements sent out to you ASAP.
Thanks again for choosing RAD and providing us with the feedback. We appreciate you being a part of our community. Enjoy the 'big puzzle!'
I don’t know what I was expecting, but this blew away any of my expectations. Beautiful piece of furniture that is appropriately heavy (feels very solid), and books fit perfectly. I thought shelves may be too narrow for some of the bigger board books based on pictures, but there is plenty of room as shelves are deeper than I thought. It was super easy to assemble, and it came with an a hex wrench and drill bit. Drill bit was a super nice touch and made assembling even easier. I could assemble it as one person who has limited assembly experience. If you are new to assembly, like me, make sure to install an anti-tip kit! There are instructions on RAD's website, or on youtube. Our child absolutely loves this and I was able to assemble the entire thing very quickly. So beautiful and so happy with it! They love running and picking their books and it helps them (and us) by removing visual clutter. She loves picking out books even more now that they face forward and makes book rotation easier. Added a picture so you can see.
The furniture is beautiful and incredibly well crafted! We didn’t notice any odors or off gassing, which made us feel comfortable. The instructions were clear enough and it feels very very sturdy. Our daughter also loves it and has helped us with reducing clutter and toy rotation! It looks beautiful, pictured attached including next to the bookshelf.
I love the toddler height square table. At first I wasn't sure if to get that one or the infant one for my 12 month old at the time but the Chat representative was very helpful and suggested the toddler would be the best option for us. I paired it with the Montessori cube chair and it's perfect! My son uses the table all the time in the kitchen, out on the deck, in the living room -- he will sit down and eat and other times he'll use it to play. The table is sturdy and easy to clean. It is heavy to lift with just one hand if my other one is occupied holding my toddler. I like how it has rounded edges and corners. It is level on wood, tile, and carpet flooring.
The table and chairs look great in our church nursery. The children love them!
Double endorsement from the twins, who love playing at their round table. I’m so happy with the quality and durability, and I know it will be a place of making memories for years and years.
We absolutely love all your products and look forward to adding more to our collection!
This bookshelf is such a great quality. We love the company and their customer service. Very happy with our bookshelf!
We have really enjoyed our Pikler Triangle purchase so far. Our 8 month old took to it right away and loves holding the bars and bouncing or climbing a couple steps up. I can tell he will get many years of use out of this well made and safe product. Love the feature to close and store away if needed. We will likely purchase the ramp next to accompany the triangle. Highly recommend!
Recently got this for our 9mos old, she's using it to pull herself up to stand currently. Very sturdy and great quality, I'll be purchasing a climbing ramp to go along with it and other products too!
We are so happy with these well-made, high-quality tables. They are beautiful and sturdy. The customer service was prompt and helpful in responding to my questions!
We got the learning tower for my baby turning one and he absolutely loves it. When he crawls into the kitchen he immediately climbs up it and loves to look around. It also motivates him to stand unassisted for long periods of time which I think is getting him more confident to start walking. I’m also really impressed how quickly he learned to crawl up it and back out without any help. I’m so glad we have this I can see it being a household favorite for a long time!
We purchased a redux chair and table and absolutely loved it! Our 15 month old loves that he has right-sized space for himself and we love that the product is made of non-toxic, high quality materials and is built to last. The flaws are minor/aesthetic and we know these prices are only going to get more wear and tear over the years, so the savings were well worth it! We also love that these peices get a second chance at life and didn’t end up in a landfill.
I had a few questions regarding the redux, and RAD responded to me same day in a Saturday. Awesome customer service!
We are now big fans of RAD!
I am the Montessori Director for 12 schools in Minnesota, and I have ordered SEVERAL of these. They are very simple to assemble, comes with everything you need. They are an exceptional value for a beautiful, handmade piece of equipment. And best of all, the babies LOVE it. They should be placed away from a wall, so that the infants can pull up and cruise around the entire structure, they crawl through it, peek up through the roof, and love to drop items in the hole and find them down below--a giant object permanence box! The edges are soft and safe. Definitely recommended!!
We love everything about this company. This is our third purchase with them. Everything is really well made and comes super quick.
I got the cube chair for our 6-month-old to use as a little desk. I'm excited that he will grow with this piece - from desk to chair to stool.
We love our RAD climbing triangle so much! We live in a small space, and the small triangle is the perfect size for max baby fun without being in our way. Thank you so much RAD team!
My 16 month old loves climbing in and out of his cube chair! We set up a “work” corner for him in our work room to encourage independent play while I work. Item came well packaged, and quite quick!
Extremely happy we finally bought this for our kids. It is made very well and easy to assemble (husband didn't complain which is a plus!) My 2 year old daughter and our friends 10 month old loves it! Shipping was unbelievably fast.
Awesome products! I purchased 2 tables and stools for our infant & young toddler room and a small climbing triangle for our 2 year old's (I run a preschool/child care center). All the products came super fast, were packaged wonderfully and everything was super easy to put together. Staff and children alike are very happy!! Thank you RAD!
