A fantastic toy. RRP is a little much for what it is, though I see Amazon frequently have some great deals on this item. It's certainly worth paying for. The detail is minute and charming. There are so many accessories to complete the piece, and you can even balance the set squares on the blackboard shelf without them falling over, with some practice! Minimal assembly is required, and where things do slot together it's quite simple. The working clock is a lovely feature. You can also slot books into the children's and teacher's desks, and the design of the chairs makes it easy to seat (and wedge) long-tailed figures, especially squirrels!
