Product quality of lower standards than expected
on 6 January 2015
Almost everyone has focused on the pros, so to make a difference I will comment on the cons. First of all and despite what is written on the package, the so-called step-by-step instructions were not included within, so I had to look for them at the melissa and doug website. Secondly, imho they do not suffice for a brain of average intelligence. So, I found an amateur video in Youtube much more enlightening. Thirdly, most of the blocks seemed to have fold marks in places where they shouldn't, as if someone had misused them or not taken good care of them while preparing for packaging. And finally, they are considerably smaller than one would expect having looked at the product photos. I think, to be fully satisfied with the product, the blocks should be either twice the size or the number; or one should buy another 40-piece package..
