I read all the negative reviews and here is what I have to say
I read the negative reviews and here is what I have to say. When the shelf arrives it looks scratched and cloudy but when you remove the plastic film from the inside and outside of the shelf it's very clear. This shelf seems to be made of plastic so I would not hang it low where a child would try to hang from it. After looking at all the clear floating shelves on amazon this was the ONLY one I found where people did not complain of books falling off the ledge. The front lip is high and I don't foresee any problems of books falling. Now I'm giving it 4 stars because I think it's over priced!! I like the shelves but I don't understand why it cost so much?!?! It should at least be half the price. They look good but I am still embarrassed to tell people how much I spent on them.
After learning more about the company I understand why they are priced high. It is a small business created by a stay at home mom who noticed her child read more when the books were displayed. I have always preferred to shop with small businesses even if I have to pay slightly higher prices.

Perfect for our kids room!
I love the look of these bookshelves! The books look so cute displayed on the wall. The product material is strong enough for the smaller/lighter books. Too much weight will cause the base to sag, and the books fall over the ledge. I would order these again!

Loved this shelf so much, I bought three
This shelf made our nursery complete. It matches any decor because it's clear, yet it's still playful with books in it. The 36" shelf holds up to 50 pounds, which is a lot--you'll run out of space before you hit the weight limit. It holds about 20 baby books (including thick board books) or 30+ non-board books. I think the price is a bit steep for an acrylic shelf, but I looked everywhere online and could NOT find it cheaper at this width. CB2 has some that are not as wide for more money. Target, Walmart, Etsy, World Market...this shelf is still your best bet. It comes with great instructions that literally tell you how to install drywall screws. Just DON'T INSTALL THE DRYWALL SCREWS INTO A WALL STUD! I made the mistake of not using a studfinder before trying to hang up the shelf, and one of the plastic drywall anchors BROKE OFF IN THE WALL! It made a huge hole, which was a pain to patch up. I ended up using molly bolts instead of the provided screws because the molly wall holes were much smaller, could go into wood studs, and we're still rated to hold 50 lbs. Anyway, this shelf is perfect for books, though I could see someone using it for spices, a photo display, makeup organization, recipes, to hold chalk on a chalk wall, vitamin bottles, toys...the uses are endless. Love love love.

Great item for a great price
Great product, just what I was hoping to fine at a much better price than what I had found initially through a well known kids catalog. There was an issue with not receiving hardware but the seller was quick to respond the issue and shipped out the replacement immediately and included a hand written note. Very pleased, would recommend.

Beautiful perfume display despite a snapped anchor!
I actually got two of these as a perfume display for my sitting room. I wanted something that reminded me of the boutiques I used to work in, but my cat couldn't push them off of the front, and were sturdy enough to take heavy and large bottles. This worked beautifully! I've gotten so many compliments on my display! The only downside is one of the wall anchors snapped when I was putting it in, so I had to carefully, painstakingly, remove the anchor somehow from the wall without a screwdriver (I used a wrench), then I couldn't find another anchor that fit the large hole so I had to MacGyver a new mechanism for mounting it to the wall using one anchor (already in the wall) and...whatever the heck I came up with. Not the sturdiest solution if I were to use this as a kid's floating bookshelf, but it should hold for now.
All in all, love it!

Super!!! As a Kindergarten teacher, I shopped around for something else for my grandchildren than classroom library furniture ... and this was it! Super sturdy when used in a regular way, children have to understand they can not "hang" on it, but this regards for every item you hang on the wall, right?
After taking off the protective wrap, the material is really crystal clear, very beautiful! Hanging was a breeze, as the correct hardware was included. My (step) grandchildren are between 3 and 12, and their floating bookshelves are a hit in their fairy tale based playroom! It is indeed a fact that children are more interested in books if you present them this way!! So worth the money, would buy again, thank you!

Love this shelf! I did have trouble installing the dry wall anchors and ended up not using them, but the shelf looks great and has been holding strong for a week with no issues (it may have just been that I never use those and probably did it wrong so I didn't take away any stars for that). I love that it is clear so my son can see the books he wants to read.

Truly good product made with love
I dont often write reviews, although I depend greatly on them for help making good purchases on amazon! I received this product today and installed it so easily, I had to come write a great review. So many products are just good enough, but this one is made well and is actually easy to install with the bare minimum tools. All you need is a screwdriver, a pencil, and a level - really! It is very strong; mine is currently holding 10 large childrens books, at least 7 of them are hardbacks. Its only the first day, but I am so satisfied with this purchase and plan to buy more. I also love that the company was started by a mom who wanted to engage her son in reading.

Love these, have 3 of them!
I have 3 of these and absolutely love them. They are very easy to hang, sturdy and nice quality, and look great holding books in my sons room. I hung them at his level so he can pick out and put away his books all by himself. Will likely purchase more as we get more books!
