The workbench came and was not necessarily difficult to assemble. It was however missing a piece for the vice. It looks to me that it should have been asembled at the factory but it came in 3 pieces when there should have been 4. I was able to pick up a snap ring at the hardware store and fix it myself. So all in all a nice toy but make sure aLL the stuff is in the box.
Our friends had one & we knew our son played with it already, as have his little friends. The instructions have a booklet with 6 different vehicles/robot that you can build- he's too young to do it himself so we do the building, but he's great at picking out the pieces& taking it apart. Our friend's did not come with the booklet, not sure if there's has all the same pieces. The description we read was not obvious that this was included, & my husband even thought it was an additional purchase even after it was all here & put together. One piece doesn't "work"- a screw feels like it's stripped, and one broke but was easily glued back together.
