If I could give this grocery store/lemonade stand more than 5 stars I would as my son and nieces love playing with this stand. We have a lot of Melissa and Doug toys in our home and as I have come to expect from the brand this stand has been manufactured and completed to an extremely high standard. If I could express anything to a potential purchaser of this stand it would be that yes it does seem a bit expensive but believe me you will not be disappointed in it as it is all made of solid wood (except for the plastic food bins) and the quality of it is exceptional. I have taken a few photo's of the stand constructed without food etc and you can see these pictures within the product images from customers which are just to the right of the product reviews on the main product page.

The stand took quite a while to build (35minutes) and both my husband and I ended up having to build it together as the barrel nuts and screws that hold the main poles together that make up the main inside frame of the stand were very fiddly to do. The holes for the barrel nuts were too big and so the barrel nuts slipped around inside them unless one of you held it in place with a screwdriver whilst the other screwed the screw into it from the side pieces. I wouldn't let this put you off the stand but do be aware that it is a bit of a pain to get the first stages of the stand built. The rest of the stand was really easy to construct and it was just the first main bit that was a bit of a nuisance.

All the effort was definitely worth it though once the stand was built and my son saw it as he was made up with it and my nieces have loved playing shop with him and the stand. The grocery store/lemonade stand sign is reversible and you simply unhook it from the main poles and swap the sign around.

Don't know who was the more excited - me, finding this, or the five year old who got it for her birthday. What's not in doubt is how fab this is for any child who loves playing shops. The box says for '3 years +' but in terms of actual height, the grocery store will last for years. (In fact, I'd say the child in the photo is probably about seven or eight.)

As mentioned in another review on here, once built from its flat-pack arrival, the grocery store is very sturdy - and while it's not cheap, for its size and the many years of play it will service, I reckon this is a good investment. I particularly like the little blackboards attached to each bucket on the store front: as kids take to numbers, you'll be able to write prices up and test their adding skills.

There's a fair bit of construction to do. Nothing complicated, just a lot of bolts to slot in and secure. And my only criticism is that some of the drilled holes weren't aligned, and the bolts provided are soft, to the extent that they began to strip as we worked the misaligned holes and bolts together. That said, once its built, it really will survive any amount of rough and tumble.

Note to parents: the store doesn't come with any of the fruit shown in the picture, so be prepared to buy some separates. However, if you shop around there are some cheap wooden groceries, fruit and vegetables to be found online.

All in all, a great plaything. I wish I'd had one of these when I was a kid.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
We’ve tried a quite a few Melissa & Doug toys, and found them all to be pretty good, but this one is a real treat. It has all the hallmarks of a traditional toy – it’s solidly made in wood and fabric, has genuine educational value, and offers plenty to fire a small child’s imagination. Yet it’s simple enough for any child to understand and engage with straight away.

It comes packed in a huge cardboard box (which Amazon ships wrapped in a heavy-duty plastic bag and packing tape. Assembly is easy enough, and after a few minutes you have yourself a shop all ready to play with. As you’ll have seen from the photos, the stall is a grocery store and lemonade stand, the change from one to the other made by flipping around the awning.

The only thing it’s missing is some stock. Your child will need something to put in those trays to sell, (unless of course you want it to be a play Soviet-era shop). A bag of play fruit and veg would be a great thing to include in the set, but alas it isn’t. However, Melissa & Doug do make sets of play groceries and fruit, complete with shopping baskets.

As for play… it’s probably not a lot of fun for just one child playing alone. It really needs a child playing with grown-up or, even better, with other children. Gosh, once two of three children get playing at storekeepers and customers, they are happy for hours, and there is almost nothing to break. What we weren’t expecting is that, to a child, it could be a post office, garage, doctor’s surgery, puppet show stage and goodness know what else, too, regardless of the signage.

It’s certainly a large toy, but its size is mostly vertical – it doesn’t take up much floor space. And it’s such a sold thing that, when you’re child has grown out of it, it will surely have pretty good resale value.

I have just finished putting this item together, ready for my little girls birthday. It hasn't been difficult to out together, and was all fairly logical.

It is of really nice quality and looks really good. It is also a good and substantial size for small children.

It can be used as either a lemonade stand or a grocery stand - I think a grocery stand will be most used here. The stand doesn't come with any fruit or veg, so it will need to be purchased separately. I've noticed that the same manufacturers, Melissa and Doug, make play fruit and veg. I tend to trust them to make good quality toys, so will be purchasing their fruit and veg.

Overall, I am really pleased with how this looks. It is excellent for imaginative play and role play.

Would recommend.
