I was very excited about these prior to purchasing, I got them mainly because I have very limited storage and these are supposed to be foldable. I checked them out in store and they wouldn't stay folded, however, the salesperson assured me that they were floor models and had been out for a while and new ones should be fine. When I got home that was not the case. When I attempt to fold them they refused to stay together and I have to store them slightly slanted in order for them to stay upright which is the opposite of what I was looking for. Additionally, the wood is soooo soft I grazed the handle against the wall on my balcony and it literally took out a little chunk of it, I really didn't think I hit the wall that hard until I say the handle. OTHERWISE, they are cute, I purchased along with the chess table which I really like.
