It's always a good thing when you buy Mellisa and Doug wooden toys I have bought several of their pieces throughout the years. Never a complaint and the kids love playing with them. So we'll made they are passed down to the next grand kids!
The set is very well made, with the timber shield and predrilled holes. All the parts come nicely packaged and easy to separate into groups. The beams are not labeled, which my husband says would have been helpful. He and his dad (65) put the core of the playset together, such as the base, swing beam and the frame of the playhouse. However, my husband was able to do the rest himself with a couple power tools. The playset comes with everything kids need to have a great time and it is a great looking set for 1/2 the price of the other places. My husband and my FIL are very handy, and it took them about 5 hours for the frame and about another 5 hours solo for my husband to finish it up. They both agreed it was a great set, easy to use once they figured out the beams, and very good wood and parts.
