Little Seeds Grow with Me Closet System
We purchased the Little Seeds Grow With Me Closet System so our writer could put it to the test. Keep reading for our full product review.
Getting cute baby clothing is a fun part of becoming a parent. It is easy to quickly get lost in the sea of tiny pants, onesies, and PJs. A nursery closet system is a perfect way to keep things organized for your new baby while teaching good habits that will help your children keep track of their things for years.
The Little Seeds Grow with Me closet system was delivered right to my door in one box. I assembled the closet system in about four hours from start to finish. The shipping box was damaged, which was noted by other purchasers, but the product inside was fine. Look out for any defects or damage.
For such a heavy item, shipping can add significantly to the overall cost—check several online sites for free shipping offers. By ordering from Wayfair, shipping was free. You may want to buy additional fabric or woven bins for the cubby boxes, reflecting your needs and decor choice. The closet system works great, whether you want to use bins or not.
I like products that help foster my child's independence. The Little Seeds Grow with Me closet system includes a lower shoe rack or shelf, as well as four cubbies at my child's height. Having parts of their closet at their level makes it easy for them to put away their clothes and toys. I left the cubbies open to encourage them to put their things away. Little Seeds sells themed bins, and many fabric or woven baskets will fit.
The closet system includes one drawer with built-in stops, preventing my daughter’s fingers from being pinched. Another safety item that I appreciated was the included wall mounting straps, which prevents large furniture items from tipping over onto children.
My daughter is a 1-year-old, and many of her clothes are still very small, taking up very little room in a standard closet. Ideally, I would prefer hanging them up, but there would be a lot of wasted space underneath if I did that. Five adjustable hanging rods make this a perfect closet system for children's clothes. As my child grows, I can remove some of the hanging rods to allow for longer items.
The Little Seeds Grow With Me closet system is made of laminated particleboard. It looks nice when first installed, but if your kids are anything like mine, they will likely pull at the laminate since it is easy for them to reach the lower shoe rack. I was okay with this potential issue at this affordable price point, but a solid wood closet system would eliminate the possibility.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is included in the Little Seeds Grow With Me Closet System?
The closet system's standard setup includes six shelves (five are fixed and one is adjustable), one drawer, and five hanging rods. It comes with all of the hardware needed for assembly and installation. The pre-drilled holes for the hanging rods are 2.5 inches apart, which allows for a lot of options.
Is the Little Seeds Grow With Me closet system easy to assemble?
This closet system comes unassembled and stacked in pieces in one heavy, cumbersome box. To get the closet system upstairs to my daughter's room where it was being installed, I took the boards and other pieces out of the box and carried them upstairs to my daughter’s room in small groupings. The box was too heavy for me to get upstairs by myself.
It took about four hours to put the Little Seeds Grow With Me closet system together. The most lengthy process was assembling the center shelving unit. Adding the hanging rods only took a few minutes. The rods are adjustable up to 95 inches.
Can I use the Little Seeds Grow With Me closet system for rooms other than a nursery?
The Little Seeds closet system is great for everyone from newborns to adults. The five hanging racks and low cubbies work well for children, but as your child grows into an adult or if you plan to use the closet system yourself, you can change the customizable set up to allow more space for adult-sized clothing.
As my child grows, I can remove some of the hanging rods to allow for longer items.
Little Seeds Grow With Me Closet System vs. Dotted Line Grid Closet System
For most closets, the Dotted Line Grid Closet System is a good size and easy to assemble. At $549.99, it is pricier than the customizable Little Seeds setup. It has drawers, shelves, and hanging rods to accommodate a lot of clothes and other items. The Dotted Line closet system comes in three colors—white, brown, and gray. It has an adjustable width of 48 to 96 inches. It can work with closets that are much narrower than those needed for the Little Seeds closet system. The Little Seeds Grow with Me closet system will work with small clothing items (and the height of smaller people) and larger ones if you want the extra customization options.
Yes, buy it.
You may find less expensive closet systems, but you will have to choose between efficient storage for a child’s room or a setup that works for them once they are older. I was happy with all of the customization available with the Little Seeds Grow With Me closet system.
