I've brought this for my 2 1/2 year old as she loves playing with figurines. She was playing with this set in the local toy shop and she loved it, as there was many rooms, stairs and a door to put her figurines in. She was occupied for hours with it. The bonus is that it folds away! nice square box shape that you can stack and put away, unlike other toy sets which come to pieces and eventually you lose. Nice size, well built, throughly can reccomend this item!
