These toys are extremely well made and actually worth the effort once it's all assembled.....
I have to strongly contest the advice on the box though "Adult assembly required - approx 1 hour" utter rubbish - took us a whole afternoon! Very fiddly little rivit type bits and lots of them, you need patience and time.
I feel you need to be organised in setting up your new "set" as the pieces are all very seperate but are neatly grouped in little plastic bags, however, instructions are great and easy to follow.
Fab toy though, very sturdy and wonderful for a 6 year old's imagination.
I like the way we can add-on as well with other products of this kind in the future.
I've also learnt since that my neighbour's daughter asked for a Playmobile toy for christmas just gone and she is 9 years old.... so bags of playtime with a Playmobile Play set.
