Package arrived quickly and it did not take very long to assemble. The quality of the assembly wood is great and the instructions were perfect. With the exception of the mallet, the tools are not really made for actual use- but we substituted child sized saw, screw driver, etc. and it is a real working toolbench. The packaged kit for the building items is okay- but definitely meant for a child 6 or 7 years old who has the patience and fine motor skills to assemble the items. This is typical Melissa and Doug quality and well worth the money!!
This was the first present my Grandson, age 2 1/2, opened on Christmas day and he was so enomoured with it he didn't want to open his other presents! This workbench is very solid and the little tools and pegs work well together. It was pretty easy to assemble too. For the price you won't find a better one.
My grandson loves this workbench and this easily became his favorite christmas gift. He and his little friend use the tools all the time for pretending to work on their little cars. So well put together it will last a lifetime.
My husband was quite pleased with the quality of wood & workmanship in this. It was easy to put together. Our grandson (almost 4) loved it! We also purchased a household set of real tools (small sized)--a hammer, pliers, multi-head screwdriver set, measuring tape, level, & saw. Grandpa will supervise the real tools, and teach proper tool safety & use on real projects. For play, he'll use the wooden "tools" that come with the set.
This is a nice looking workbench set, doesn't look terrible sitting in my family room. I bought it for my 3 yr old and he loves it. The projects that come with it are a little advanced for a 3 yr old to do on his own.
This is a great little work bench for a toddler. I like it because there are also project instructions and materials included so that an adult can play with their toddler and create a few projects. Nice!
Excellent toy, excellent quality & value. Bought for our 2 & 4 year old daughters and they love it! This is a toy that is very versatile in the appropriate age range, so it will provide years of play, and is heirloom quality. Very sturdy. Great price.
Love this workshop bench for my 3 year old son, he “works” right along with daddy in the shop. The height is just right and all the tools and blocks are so much fun. Great Melissa and Doug wood quality.
We bought this gift for my son whom love's tools. He and my 12 year daughter have so much fun playing with this. It's a bonding moment for them both. Great Activity workbench that will last a lifetime. The quality of the bench is really good!
Melissa and Doug Wooden toys never disappoint! The pieces do not splinter and are durable. The workbench is a perfect gift for a crafty boy who enjoys tinkering!
Gift for our nearly 3 year old grandson.....I can see him using this for a few years...Arrived quickly...and was a big hit on Christmas..Excellent value..
Absolutely love how well made this wooden workbench is...will be perfect...for grandchild's Christmas gift....should keep her from busy...now she can help grandad safely..
Although this children work bench is extremely sturdy I feel it was a bit challenging to put together. I ended up putting thin wood strips under the top pieces in order for the top planks to lie flush with each other. I think improvements could be made with the addition of actual interactive pieces attached to the work bench top such as screws that had actual holes for bolts to be screwed in. As it is to use the bolts you generally have to use two hands ( one to hold the bolt and one to screw the bolt into the hole) This takes more developed small motor skills where as a grooved bold slot would allow kids to use the screwdriver and bolt with one hand. If the bolt and nut are connected as they are now they simply flop around in the predrilled hole on the tabletop. A child would have to reach under the table top and hold the nut while screwing the bolt on top of the workbench, A bit tricky. This is a very strong activity set. I actually saw a video advertising this where an adult stood on top of the workbench and it held their weight. In hind site I find myself looking for something else on the internet to add to this in order for my granddaughter to use this and gradually grow into the more difficult aspects. A carpenters apron with pockets and even a marked ruler wood be a nice addition. This bench is mostly plain wood colored. Addition of bright colored sections would also be more appealing to kids.
Nice work bench, just added a few more tools to this. I like this better than looking at all the plastic toys...wood is much more pleasing to the room
easy to put together and the grandchildren love it.
We purchased this for our grandson and he loves it! We have never been disappointed by Melissa and Doug products and this was another great find. The materials are top grade and durable for years of enjoyment.
The table was not exactly my kids favorite, but they have been playing with it. The project book should be great for when they get older.
VERY NICE WORK BENCH FOR GRANDSON,WELL MADE AND EASY TO PUT TOGETHER WILL LAST FOR YEARS AND WILL BE PASSED DOWN FOR YEARS TO COME
I was afraid this workshop would be too small or kissing for my grandson, but it is perfect. He help his not so handy mom put it together, and loves working on the kits, with help. Priced right. The package looked like it went through a tornado, but all the parts were there. I highly recommend the workbench.
Good quality. Easy to assemble, even had the children help put it together. Fun projects to put together. Only thing I wish was that they would include enough pieces to make more than one project at a time.
