Great little tool bench! Easy to assemble. Wish there were more pieces you could hammer, and the cell phone made me laugh cause it is so little! Overall we love it though. My one year old and 3 year old are enjoying it.
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.
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!!
