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!!
