We just received this set and I felt compelled to leave a review. I usually love Melissa and Doug products and have always been impressed with their quality. Not so with this set. They are extremely and VISIBLY poorly constructed. There are visible splinters protruding from the hinge joint for the horses heads, large gobs of glue are dripped all over the legs, crowns and clothes, and the princess has one leg that's visibly shorter than the other, which makes it impossible for her to stand up.
We also have the Modern Family from Plan Toys, and I would highly recommend that set over this one, even though it's not a "royal family."
