Canvas Wardrobe's are they any good?

I'm looking for a wardrobe for my daughters room that wont take up to much room and was thinking of getting one of the canvas type, but am worried it will just be a waste of money. Does anyone have one or had one and could give me an opinion. Just not sure if the frame will be very strong or if it will just fall apart within a few weeks. At the moment she has her clothes in our wardrobes but starting to take up to much room. Plus we have just decorated her room and moved things so she has room to fit one in now.
Thanks for any help.

I've got one, its not bad, the shelves are ok for lightweight items, the floor of the actual hanging space will hold a few toddler shoes, it ripped at the base slightly when we first put it together, but apparantly that happens quite a bit ( friends etc have had it happen to them ) the rail holds quite a few clothes, and it dismantles and moves ok.
Wont be taking mine with me when I move in 3 weeks, your welcome to it for the price of postage ( double sized so may be too big for you )

They wobble too much from side to side in my experience, almost like they are made from Balsa wood, I wouldn't bother again, but that is just my experience x

We got two from John Lewis for the kids. If your girl is a tomboy then they will not be a long term investment! One of ours lasted maybe close to a year, the other is still going strong. My biggest complaint is that the bars that go across the bottom runners can easily come off and they have some horrible nails/staples sticking out. I have since re-nailed using longer ones and had no issues.

They are cheap and cheerful and just view it as something that is not going to become a family heirloom, nor will last for kid #2.

I also found they hang to one side & no matter what you do they still hang to one side.I also had 3 of them so proofs in the pudding.......

we've got 4 & no problems at all, cheap, cheerful, does what it says on the package, ideal if you need to change the bedroom around, as you haven't got to lump some bloody heavy wardrobe about !

When I first moved into my flat I purchased one of these from Argos, double size. It lasted 2.5 years and then I sold it still in good condition. Obviously you cannot swing from it or anything. You also have to make sure you tie all the ties securely. Ensure that you put the heaviest items at the bottom and then you will be fine. I was more than happy with mine.
