    I was going to ask if anyone had compared the quality of this with the one from Bunnings but the Bunnings one seems much more expensive than I remember, giving the only benefit of proximity vs having to make the trek to an Ikea.

    Has it always been so closely priced?

      I used this as a tv stand and it works perfectly for me. No problems so far would definitely recommend.

        Do you get a sore neck looking up so high?

        What size is your TV? Specs say shelves only hold 13kg load. I've got a 42" LED TV and I think it would be too heavy for this unit.

          might not be exactly the same, but we have a 2x4 Expedit on wheels (the model before Kallax) which we used with a 42" LG TV for years. Perfectly fine - also had Blu Ray player, PS3, PS4 and Switch consoles on the unit. Only 2/8 slots were filled with inserts. As I understand the Kallax is slightly thinner (as are the inserts) so YMMV?

      They seem almost identical. Give or take a CM or 100g they are the same height, weight and length. The two bonuses you get the KALLAX 1. they have LOTS of different storage boxes that can go in to it so you can style it they way you like (https://www.ikea.com/au/en/search/?query=drona). All of these fit perfectly into the spaces and 2. You get to have the swedish meatballs….

          I haven't tried them, but everything else I have had at Ikea is disgusting, and it's nicely geared towards making you grab things you don't need and then get frightened that you've paid the price of a 5 star restaurant for it….

        The Bunnings version also has different storage boxes

      The IKEA one is far better quality imho. My kids managed to break the Bunnings one in about a week. My 3yo stood on a shelf (he was trying to use it as a ladder) and the shelf broke. The IKEA one, while scratched up is still in working order.

        Did you get your kid to stand on the IKEA shelf though? Otherwise, it's an unfair comparison.

        Speaking of using shelves as a ladder, I'm doing a public service by letting you know about this. Especially as you have a 3yo who enjoys climbing things - for the sake of your child's safety, make sure you secure shelves, drawers, etc. to the wall (not just IKEA-branded).

        •  

          Yup they have regularly stood on the IKEA one. All our furniture is afixed and secured. Thanks for the PSA.

        •  

          Your PSA is preventing Darwin from having its desired effect…

        •  

          on this note, Ikea give out free wall securing kits now because of the recall of Malm and not just for new purchases. You can rock up and say you have 3 pieces of furniture to secure and get 3 free kits: no proof of purchase was needed, no questions asked.

    If it drops on your child they'll pay you almost $70m or so…. really don't feel that was right….

      Where do i buy a cheap child from?

      •  

        Well I have heard of young girls go to Doctors and ask them what are the financial benefits of having a child… so it's clearly worth some research :)

      Boggles my mind, should be the parents responsibility to child-proof their home. Their furniture comes with mounting brackets as well.

      •  

        I believe the one in question didn't, but yeah as a parent to an almost 3yo… I have enough common sense to realise if there's a huge risk.

        Grandparents should have sued the parents….

        Boggles my mind, should be the parents responsibility to child-proof their home. Their furniture comes with mounting brackets as well.

        I beg to differ: It's a design fault and fails to comply with Australian Standards.

        Drawers shouldn't be able to topple over.

        Companies need to take responsibility rather than blame it on customers and wipe their hands clean of blood.

        •  

          It's always someone else's fault…

        •  

          Not sure if you know but these come with mounting points and brackets together with instructions on how to mount correctly to a wall to prevent it falling over. If parents decide to NOT mount it how is it the fault of the company that provided all the details to be safe?

          Its like saying its Fords fault if someone is killed when they did not wear a seatbelt.

          People HAVE to take responsibility when the safety is provided.

    Is it just me or has the Kallax style changed to thinner internal inserts. I swear the internal used to be as thick as the external frame….

    Have 1 already, thinking about getting 5 more.

    Anyone know anywhere in Aus we can get / source the glassdoor inserts? would make it an excellent display cabinet.

    Doesn't that $10 voucher apply to $100 min spend? Would bring it down to $62.

    I'm thinking of getting a fewof these to assemble to a loft bed type of style Ikea HACKS…
    What are your thoughts on that?
