I use it for student's graded papers and papers for parents from the office which go home on Wednesday's in a folder that parents sign each week. It is spacious enough. Assembly was not too difficult. Expensive for cardboard. I got it a few weeks ago and the other day noticed a tear already:( and taped it. The name tabs do not bend straight down, so I wrote their numbers on the side which correlate to their names. It is attractive and useful but again I am always amazed at how much cardboard costs. Saw a big box with slots at one of the big warehouse stores in a bin where you put your purchases and thought, I could have used that for free!

The color of the mailboxes that were shipped to me is not at all as pictured- they are a much darker and more intense blue in person with stark white swirls and stars. Not sure if it's an inaccurate photo of what I received, or if the product used to be a different color and they never bothered to swap out the old picture but, either way, it's a bummer. The package is also very heavy, so I'm sure I'm going to be paying quite a bit in shipping and processing fees... Though I am disappointed, I did give the product two stars because if a true primary blue is what you're after, this mailbox would probably work for you. Also, the cardboard feels thick and durable, though I cannot comment as to the sturdiness of the constructed mailbox. Once I saw the color I didn't bother to set them up.

Difficult and time consuming to assemble. One of the mailboxes was missing a bottom piece. Great for organizing and sorting mail for students

I use this as a cubby area to keep my students' notebooks and folders in. It was easy to assemble. It is made of cardboard but certainly beats the price of the wooden ones!

broke the first week
The mail center is very large. The name tags don't lay flat which make them hard to read. Unfortunately, the center broke the first week. Not happy with this product especially since it wasn't cheap.
