I gave this as a Christmas gift for my 2 year old nephew. He had a hard time playing with it as all the children at our gathering wanted this present. Great for pretend play and kept them happy for hours. I wish I had bought the other Melissa & Doug horse related toys! This toy is well constructed and a great value for the price.
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.
