The only thing that was wrong with it is it didn't include the instructions. I looked all over for them. Even then, using the pictures on the box we were able to quickly figure it out. My 2 year old son plays with it every single day. We've had it over a month now and it looks great. There is some slight wear at the bottom of each ramp, but since he normally uses his matchbox cars on it and not the wooden cars that came with it so I can't complain. It's just where the cars are so low the "bumpers" hit there. The construction is great. I've had to re-tie the elevator once, because he was using a larger dump truck on it and when he pulled it past the elevator it pulled it out. I was worried he wouldn't "get" how to use the elevator (or have the patience to turn it all the way up), but he has done great with that. My only minor complaint is I expected a little more space between each level. Pros: Excellent construction. Sturdy. Fun. It's perfect with his Melissa and Doug street signs and cars and (non M&D) wooden train tracks. Cons: Levels are closer than I expected. Slight wear at the bottom of the ramps from not using it as intended.Read More
