Rated 5 out of 5 by from Neat Portable Desk Great size desk for my five year old daughter now studying from home! Similar items were just a little too small for her and too bulky to move around the house with.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broken leg Wished I read the reviews here earlier. Haven't used this desk much at all and recently, when picking it up from a folded position, the leg just fell off... No idea how that happened.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It broke when I pushed a leg in place. My son was very excited about this desk . Unfortunately, when we opened it and put the legs up one of the plastic tabs that holds the legs in place snapped off. I don't have the receipt so I have to figure out if they will take it back but we were just standing it up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for toddlers and storage I love that we can keep papers and crayons inside the desk and then fold the legs in to store under the couch so that it doesn't take up more room in the floor of our living room. My only complaint right now is that the inside compartment isn't big enough to hold a standard clipboard properly. I wish it was a little bit bigger inside so that we could keep the clipboard with the paper. My son loves to color, but he isn't old enough to know how to hold the paper and color at the same time so without the clipboard, the paper goes everywhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for using in nursing home bed She has her lunch tray, but prefers something with more wiggle room. This tray was the answer for crafts.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not good for bucket seat I bought this for my son to work in the car. This may work for the second row of a small car. However, we have a Honda Odessey and he sits in a bucket seat. The width of this desk is almost as wide as the bucket seat. Therefore, it is very unstable. It did not work for us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart Idea I purchased the SmartLap Lap Desk for my 4 year old god-daughter for her birthday. She absolutely loves it. It works well when she is working on the couch or chair. She loves bringing it in the car to use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this Lap Desk! I love this Lap Desk! My daughter is involved in many different activities and is often going right from school to one activity, having dinner in the car and onto another activity. This is the perfect solution to allow her to get homework done on the go! For the (happily) busy child who spends a lot of time in the car, getting homework done on the go is a must - the awful alternative is starting homework at 8:30 at night. This desk opens up allowing us store paper, pencils,markers, a glue stick, scissors, and a ruler, and it's stored all right where she can easily get it if she needs it. The legs unfold, although sometimes she uses the desk without the legs, just preferring to balance it on her lap. I wanted to give this desk 4 3/4 stars if partial points were an option. The only reason that I didn't give it a full 5 stars is that I feel like there could be a little more depth in the storage compartment. There seems to be plenty of leg room - even for a large adult - and some of her supplies needed to be stored on top of the paper since they wouldn't fit in the "side" compartments meant for those writing utensils. This means she'll have to make sure the extra markers don't roll out when she's reaching under for paper. I wouldn't be an issue for an adult only needing to store pencils, pens, and paper, but more of an issue of a kid. It's not a huge deal, but just enough to prevent me from rating it a 5 star - but oh, so close! I highly recommend this product for moms and kids on the go!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great desk This lapdesk is great. I've needed it while stuck in bed during an illness, and it's very sturdy. The collapsible legs make it easy to store, and the storage compartment is very helpful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Smart Lap Desk! I purchased this for my child to use during our commutes to and from school. Love that the desk contains a sealed storage compartment, roomy enough for school supplies such as pencils, pens, notebook paper, and other tools. This is easy to carry, sets up quickly and was worth the price.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Maybe for kids, but not adults This desk isn't for adults unless the user sits up straight, with legs together and both feet on the floor (who sits on a sofa like that?!). It simply isn't tall or wide enough (and I'm really skinny). The desk legs don't provide enough clearance, and also tend to collapse when I move it aside or try to adjust either my own or its position.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very useful product I bought one of these for my daughter (now 7) a year or so ago. She was always sitting on the floor doing projects so I thought this would help her out. She keeps paper, pencils, etc. in it and uses it all the time. It holds quite a bit and is easy to carry. The only con is that the legs can snap in pretty quickly and pinch fingers if you aren't careful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for my 7 yr old's homework She can keep all her folders, papers, pencils, etc in here and do her homework on her bed or outside sitting on the steps. She also thinks it is cool so it has actually made the homework happen more easily. I like it!

Community Q&A

what material is this made out of?

Like plastic wise, because im planning on paining it with some cool designs since this is so plain.
Asked by: DrSD
It's made of Polypropylene. A plastic that does not like paint........ better go with stickers.
