Had a chance to handle one of these this weekend. Putting aside my want for a 4 wide...the binder itself felt no different in sturdiness or durability than an $8 3 ring at staples. The material seemed cheap compared to the high price tag...and the rings did not stand out as being superior to any other 3 ring binder. All that said, it was gorgeous and I was in awe at how nice it was to see orderly playsets. Just not sure it was $60 worth of nice.
