Bad quality. Animals awful
on 25 December 2015
Wanted this barn for ages as huge fan of Melissa & Doug toys and loved the design. But really disappointed. The quality is very poor, unusual for Melissa & Doug.
The barn itself is painted badly, wood splintery, doors wonky. As previous reviewers have said it doesn't latch shut and isn't easy for a child to carry. However the ladder and fence inside are nicely designed and made.
But the animals were shockingly bad. I couldn't give to my children and had to throw away and buy some more. Actually looked quite frightening!
So cheap- looked like they came from the pound shop. Badly painted and crap plastic with an obvious seam. Looked like they would break easily. The scale, style etc all wrong.
Why not have some little wooden animals to go with wooden barn?
We bought some wooden Goki animals that just about fit in to the barn.
For the hefty price tag and from this company I would expect better.
If you are buying I would budget in the cost of buying some new animals.
