My Thoughts and Review:

I was so excited (as were my children) when the Wonder Hangers arrived. I was surprised at how small the box was but upon opening, discovered the hangers were not assembled. They were easy to assemble but one does need to be careful to get both hooks in the same direction.


I tried the hangers in various ways.

I have a large walk-in closet but only a few feet available for full length items so I tried them to see if more space would become available.

It worked.

I tried hanging 5 coats to save space in our small coat closet. Here is a before and after shot.

Seemed like I would be able to get more coats in the closet until I came back a few hours later and found this:



I thought maybe the weight was too great but I discovered the five coats weighed only 9 lbs (nowhere near the 20 lb limit advertised). I thought maybe a child had knocked down the coats so I tried again but still it fell.

I also tried the Wonder Hanger in my daughter's closet but it doesn't work well in two tier closets as the clothing drags on the floor.
Before:
After

Overall I have mixed thoughts about the Wonder Hanger. I think it would work great for  kids clothing if I had traditional one rod closets. It worked great for light weight items in my closet. I'm very disappointed that it didn't hold 20 lbs as advertised.

This is a Mama Buzz review. The product was provided by Wonder Hanger for this review.

From what you've said, if I won the hangers, I'd use them in my daughter Anna's closet. She doesn't have many - or heavy - clothes. I'd love to make room for our baby's clothes in there!
