Not just for kids!Megan W.I have a small business and purchased this unit for storage, and I am so happy with it! I assembled it myself and was really pleased with how easy it was to put together (love the snap and screw brackets!). Will definitely be buying more units for my space. Highly recommend!5
For my first grade classDebraLove this product!5
Classroom UseLaurenI love this shelf. I use it in my classroom for my students to organize certain things for them. The drawers slide so nicely and it works perfectly.5
Easy complimentary storage to the Flisat tableAlixandraJust a solid piece for toy organization5
Great Lego storageJeannetteI was looking for a storage solution for my sons Legos, and this is perfect! You can choose which size of bins you want to use, and they are easily accessible and can be pulled out and placed on the floor for playtime. The top is also a great height for playing space as well. I assembled it by myself easily.5

Trofast StorageMaryellenLove my storage5
I have three of theseShellyI have three of these and am using it in my kindergarten classroom. I love that my 5 year olds can use it so independently. I love that I can use dry erase markers on the ends for names and it easily washes off, too. Definitely a win.5
Great storageHowardThis unit offer tailor made storage for any room.5
Didn’t receive all piecesSandraCould not put it together because all the pieces were not included. Contacted customer service as was told I should receive the items in a few days. After a week and nothing has comeI called again and was told they were out of the product and to call back on the Aug 16th. Very frustrated because this item was for my classroom.2
We waited for 2 monthsLeanneWe waited for 2 months for the tronaste unit to be in stock! I signed up for text notification and ordered on line for pick up in store. They sold out in 2 days!
We were very excited to get one. This replaced my 5 year old sons previous storage bins system which had inclined bins and his legos would fall out all over the floor. He really likes this new option.
All his LEGOs separated by color and he can build on top!5
Perfect for LEGOsMegI purchased this Trofast for my 6-year old grandson who is newly LEGO-obsessed! His collection is growing and needed to be organized. Plus he wanted a workspace and an opportunity to display his creations. The Trofast checks off all three boxes while not taking up a disproportionate amount of space in his room.
It went together easily and is surprisingly sturdy! The drawers slide in and out easily and this far is perfect!5
Makes a great lego workbench & storagePATGot two of these to make a play area for the kids Legos. Works great.5
Good Investment!AlexandraIt fits the purpose perfectly! Organizes the toys, especially Legos. The price is amazing!!5
Will be great to use but arrived brokenJULMI was so excited to assemble this for my boys lego collection but one of the large pieces (either the top or bottom piece) arrived damaged. It has a chunk taken out of it which is very noticeable. I’m disappointed because I paid $49 for delivery from my local store and when I try to call IKEA I can’t get ahold of anyone to figure out how to make an exchange. I paid $49 for delivery to avoid going to the store and now I’m not sure how to exchange this for a new one. I think it will work well for us once I am able to get a replacement.3
Perfect storageMe and kidsThis is perfect for under the window and low enough for my grandchildren and their toys5
Finally Getting Organized!LB123I took an awkward shaped extra closet that just had toys & extra blankets, no closet hardware, and transformed it with these shelving units. So far I have two stacked on each other and plan to add three more on the other walls of the closet. It has given me a place to organize all those things laying around without a designated place. I use it for toys, sewing items, yarn, sorting special papers, sorting uniforms, etc.5
Lego table hack!Sac bizI’ve come appreciate ikea furniture even more since having children. Our oldest has made the jump to legos with a serious interest. This piece was perfect!4
Our take on wood
Wood is the material most commonly associated with IKEA furniture, and for good reasons. It’s renewable, recyclable, durable, ages beautifully and it is an important part of our Scandinavian design heritage. At IKEA, we believe that sourced in responsible way, wood is a key change driver for climate mitigation. In 2012, we set a goal that by 2020 our wood would be from more sustainable sources. We are happy to announce that we have reached this goal and today, more than 98% of the wood used for IKEA products is either FSC-certified or recycled.
Forests are critical for life on earth
Forests contribute to maintaining balance in the atmosphere, purify the air that we breathe and are part of the water cycle. They nourish wildlife biodiversity and provide homes for indigenous communities who depend on forests for their livelihoods. 90% of plant and animal species living on the planet need forests to survive. They provide sources of food, fuel, timber and many other ecosystem services that we rely upon. Sourcing approximately 19 million m3 of roundwood per year from some 50 countries, IKEA has a significant impact on the world’s forests and the timber industry and a huge responsibility to positively influence how wood is sourced. Responsible wood sourcing and forest management ensure that the needs of people dependent on forests are met, that businesses can work sustainably, that forest ecosystems are protected and biodiversity is enhanced.
100% wood from more sustainable sources
At IKEA, we work with strict industry standards to promote responsible forestry. We don’t allow any wood in our supply chain from forest areas that are illegal or contain high conservation values or from forest areas with social conflict. Before starting to work with IKEA, suppliers must demonstrate that they meet IKEA critical requirements on wood sourcing. IKEA requires all suppliers to source wood from more sustainable sources (FSC-certified or recycled wood). All suppliers are audited regularly and non-compliant suppliers are required to implement immediate corrective actions. By working together with our suppliers, we are proud to announce that we have reached our more sustainable sources goal, which we set out to achieve by 2020. Today more than 98% of the wood used for IKEA products is either FSC-certified or recycled.
IKEA Forest Positive Agenda for 2030
As pressure on the world’s forests and the surrounding eco-systems increases due to unsustainable agriculture, the expansion of infrastructure and illegal logging, it is time to take an even more holistic approach to protect and support these important resources for generations to come. The IKEA Forest Positive Agenda for 2030 set out to improve forest management, enhance biodiversity, mitigate climate change and support the rights and needs of people who depend on forests across the whole supply chain and drive innovation to use wood in even smarter ways. The agenda focuses on three key areas: • Making responsible forest management the norm across the world. • Halting deforestation and reforesting degraded landscapes. • Driving innovation to use wood in smarter ways by designing all products from the very beginning to be reused, refurbished, remanufactured, and eventually recycled.
We accomplish more by working together
For many years, IKEA has partnered with businesses, governments, social groups and non-governmental organisations to fight forest degradation and deforestation and increase the volume and availability of wood from responsibly managed forests both for our own supply chain and beyond. We are on a journey to improve global forest management and make responsible wood sourcing the industry standard, contributing to building resilient forest landscapes and improve biodiversity.
What is particleboard?
Particleboard is made from recycled wood and sawmill leftovers – so wood pieces with the wrong shade, woodchips and sawdust become a resource instead of possibly being discarded. We use boards for things like bookcases, bed frames, sofas and kitchen frames. To protect from wear and moisture, we apply varnish, veneer or foil that adds to the furniture's look.
