In general we have been happy with the opportunities for creative play that this Duplo set provided for our grandson. However, central to the activity is the crane and it is this aspect which is less than satisfactory.
Two parts have to click together to make the base of the crane connect to the first section of the crane jib, and it is this connection which keeps falling apart when in use, and we suspect it is only going to get looser in time. A 3-year-old with good manual dexterity found it difficult to manipulate the crane without the jib falling off, with a high level of consequent frustration.
Its a shame that this flaw spoils what is otherwise a well made and creative toy.

My son (aged 2.5) picked this out on a visit to a toy shop and so we bought it for him for Christmas, and it's been a fantastic choice.

It's the first Duplo set we have purchased and I've been delighted with all the different options for play that it provides. So many of the parts are interchangeable, for example the red tip up skip can be swapped with the cement mixer part to make a tip up truck and the claw arm can take the place of the big scoop on the other vehicle. The digger has a bonnet that opens so that you can fix the engine (space for one brick inside). The set is designed so that the claw picks up a brick, which can be dropped into the red tip up skip, which in turn sends the brick down the shoot and into the cement mixer.. brilliant.

My son loves driving the vehicles around and operating the long armed claw (as well as sitting the workmen - there are 3 - down for a coffee break on the steps and then picking them up with the long arm claw...)

Previous reviewers are correct in their observations that it is tricky to build, but I can do it pretty quickly now when he wants to play with it, and he'll learn to do it as he gets older too. It is also quite wobbly, but neither of these things would prevent my from buying it. It's one of our top Christmas buys. As a family - we are delighted with it.

Added Note 3rd Oct 2011:
I would like to add that having had this set 10 months now, we have become a little frustrated with the crane part of the set, which comes apart very quickly if not handled 'just right'. We still love the set, but the crane arm coming off regularly does get annoying...

Added Note 3rd Oct 2013 (how weird is it that I do this on the same day 2 years later!?!

My 4yr old son loves diggers and building, so this Lego Duplo Stone Quarry set ticks all the right boxes for him. The lego as always is great quality and with lots of spare bricks from other sets helps to fire my sons imagination. Amazon delivered exactly as they promised.

Well my 2 1/2 year old boy adores this! What is it about little boys and construction vehicles?!
The digger and mixer were very popular as was the crane - although he gets frustrated when the crane dislodges from its mountings, which happens quite frequently.
I would have given 5 stars if it had included one of those lovely laminated building instruction sheets that come in the 'My first' duplo set. As it is the only instructions were on the box - fine for the adults, but no use for an independent toddler.

My children love duplo so I got them this set for their birthday. Being two boys they were delighted with the trucks. There is A lot in the box for £40 compared to some of the other sets. As durable as ever. Easy to assemble.
