So I am totally not a good put the puzzle together person. The instructions the kitchen came with make no sense to me. Basically it says just tape it together and offers pics that are not step by step.

Can someone give me a step by step first grader no way to lose instructions? I for the life of me cannot figure out these areas that have tape and how it should go.

TIA!

Have you contact the store? Not everyone here buy the pre-made coro from the store. So we can't give you instructions.

Hopefully other members who have bought from them can help you.

Can you take a picture of the un-assembled tray? Maybe I could figure out.

Unfortunately I don't have the ability to take pics and post on my computer. I emailed Sue. I'm just frustrated because the instructions are for those who just get it who don't have visual spacial issues and problem solving issues. I even had to have help with putting the cage together, but my friend can't help me with this.

Maybe they should post the directions for assembly online as well so for people like me that can't take a photo and post to my computer for help, people can look there to help.

This is my guess. Not sure if it's accurate, since I've never seen it in person. Just guessing from the pic.

I'm guessing the coroplast looks kinda like this.

Step 1:
Fold the side flaps up 90 degrees.

Step 2:
Fold the back flap up 90 degrees.

Step 3:
Fold the sides of back flaps to the side flaps. Then tape.

Step 4: Flip the tray so you can take a closer look at the front. (From this point is the part where I'm not sure if it's accurate.)

Step 5: Fold the small front flap down. Use double sided tape to keep it down.

Please let me know if this works. I spent quite a lot of time drawing this out.

Thanks so much Lissie. I just called Sue. As soon as she gets done with putting Coro away, she'll respond. We've actually had multiple email conversations with Arista as well as even mailing out sample coro colors that needed a few days to get to California from the East Coast. We always respond promptly and reply to customer issues and questions. Sue will clarify, but your drawings are great.

Thank you very much for your help.

I responded to your email - within 4 minutes of you sending it. Perhaps it went to your spam folder - please check it. I asked if you received the instructions. We've never had anyone not understand how to tape the flaps, so please bear with me because I'm trying to understand exactly where the problem lies. Lissie posted very accurate images (thanks!). Let me know if that helps. If not, we can talk on the phone with some step-by-step if you'd like.

Thank you so much! This should do it. I'm still going to have my friend help me to make sure it's done right.

I appreciate the help. Part of my frustration is I wish I understood instructions better without needing step by step. I appreciate Sue sending the brown sample coro even though I never received it, and I looked every day in the mail through all the junk too. I asked if I could have another sample sent. I'll probably bag the brown, maybe keep to the white in expanding the cage.

Will mail another sample. Can you just respond to my email with your address again? I just want to confirm it so we're sure it's addressed properly.
