I really did want to give this lovely little all- wood construction set five stars, but it's a case of a good design not perhaps thought through enough. This is unusual for Melissa and Doug products which tend to be of very high quality.

Essentially, it's wooden Meccano for beginners, Meccano itself is available in plastic for children from 5 upwards, but this lovely 48 piece set of nuts, screws, and struts is made out of wood. The suggested age range is 4+, dextrous three and a half year olds should manage this. A child older than 7 will find this not challenging enough.

The wood pieces are sturdy enough but very light and well finished. The nuts, washers and wheels are painted in red, blue, yellow and green. I found that they fitted together beautifully, and had no problem screwing the nuts and washers on to the wooden screws, using the dinky little wooden screwdriver.
There are two long screws identifiable by having red-painted screw heads, and nine shorter screws with blue, green and yellow heads.

The longest struts measure 28 cms - 11 inches - and have six holes, there are two of these. They decrease in size by one-hole increments - 2 x 5 holes, 4 x 4 holes, 4 x 3, and 4 x 2. The longest two sides of the box also have three holes drilled in, so they can become part of the construction.

The box is beautifully compartmented too, to store all the pieces. What let the box down was the fact that the box has to be tipped upside down and the contents scattered to read the instructions for constructing the various models, which are on a piece of paper pasted to the underside of the box. The models are a crane, an aeroplane, a motorcycle and a race car.

Whilst this set is in itself quite a nice little product, I bought it along with the Melissa and Doug workbench to provide extra items to build / play with. I chose Melissa and Doug expecting the pieces to be compatible.

I was therefore very disappointed to find that the threads are different for each set and so the parts are definitely not interchangeable. For an adult, it's irritating and means that the interchangeability doesn't happen. Try explaining to a 4 year old, why certain bolts only fit certain nuts and then watch them trying to distinguish between them!

Overall this is a good toy, let down by a couple of things.
One of the screws broke immediately. We have superglued it, but it's too early to tell if it will last.
Some of the screws thread (is this the word?) is not even, meaning the bolts cannot be tightened past a certain point.
The instructions aren't great. I know imagination is key, but if they're going to make examples, they may as well be possible to make without a degree.
Overall my son enjoys playing with it.

Fantastic set which will encourage role play. A good size jacket which fitted the age of the child I purchased it for perfectly. The hat is adjustable to fit different size of heads. The added little pockets to carry tools in adds to the role play perfectly. A great item which I would recommend.

My little boy loves everything about construction vehicles and trucks and must wear this when playing with them. Its good quality and comes with a handy little belt which he stores his tools in. Its starting to get small now so I will buy another larger one soon:)

This outfit comes with a very cute little tool belt and good quality work jacket. Very sweet little pocket that you can put a picture and name of your little one. goggles are good quality too and my 3 yr old loves them. really finishes off the look. It is a nice set and a little different from other builders sets...not sure that makes it worth the cost though!
