We have one small and one large frame for our kitchen. We were pleasantly surprised by how sturdy and well made these frames are. They also include a template for easy installation. The smaller frame has a frame stand as well if you want to put it on a table, rather than hang it. Our son is constantly pointing at the frames and declaring, "I made that!" Makes me smile every time. These are a must-have.

These frames look nice and open easily. However, when you open them while they are hanging, they tip over to the side where the door is, making it quite difficult to put art in. You have to hold the frame up with one hand while getting the four corners of the art to slip in. There is no way a child go do this on their own. In addition, the art is held to each corner with a slot where you slide the paper in, so if your art is a little too big or too small, it won't fit. Finally, the way the frame holds multiple pieces of art is with foam in each corner, so you can press more pieces in by squishing down on the foam. I am concerned the foam will degrade over time.

I am a little disappointed in these frames. For one thing, the frame tips to the side when you open it while it is hanging - the open door creates a heavy weight on one side. This makes it difficult to add a picture because you have to hold the frame up with one hand while putting the picture in with one hand. I don't see how a child could put in a picutre without taking the frame off the wall. Another problem is that the pictures have to be a fairly specific size - anything smaller and it won't be big enough to get in all 4 corners. Finally, there is a piece of foam in each corner, and to add more pictures, you squish down the foam. I worry that over time the foam will lose its spring.

These frames make displaying kid's art so easy! Not only are you able to change out the pictures easily, but the frame holds them all in one place, reducing clutter in your house. I purchased four frames, two in each size, and hung one of each horizontally, and one of each vertically. I now am able to display any size art, no matter which way it is facing. They make great grandparent gifts as well!

I bought 2 large frames and 2 smaller ones. I grouped them together and use them to diplay all those things the kids bring home and I'd like to save or display. Now I can do both. These are wonderful!
